Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RekShop Good tools with a great warranty.
Comfortable and capable tools for the do-it yourselfer (aka honey-do-lister). My goal was to find an impact driver and citcular saw combo that had the power and features without all the fluff; eg worklight. I researched all brands offered at Lowes and Home Depot (HD) and found this kit only to then learn of Ridgid's lifetime service agreement, which is specific to HD, tilting the value in Ridgid's favor. After ordering the kit via HD's website, along with free shipping, I received the kit only to be pleasantly surprised that the impact driver and circular saw were not the fuego series (X3?) but of the newest X4 series, all of which were registered and are currently awaiting confirmation for their LSA coverage, including the battery! These tools have already been used a lot and are exactly what I needed. My sole complaint would be the lone battery, which is the smaller sized version, but that is easily remedied seeing as how friends and family are tuned in enough to snag HD gift cards for me when applicable.

Love the convenience of not having to need power. With they supplied a second battery. I have a Rigid Drill which I love and that came with two batteries.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bbyers Best thing since sliced bread
I originally purchased this tool in kit with the drill/ radio combo in December 2013 as I had used a buddy's previously and was initially impressed.. This tool is SUPER and has plenty of power to complete nearly all tasks asked. Have used to drive 3" screws in seasoned treated decks and new construction alike. You can go for a very long time on one charge. FYI--The bigger batteries really do last longer. Handle feels comfortable and no issues with function in 2 years. LED lights to shine on work area is very helpful if working inside. Have also used working on cars and compact size is great. So impressed with operation I have begun buying more in this line. Would like to see more individual tools and various kits available at the store. Big determining factor for me was the LSA and the interchangeable batteries. So far have not needed the LSA but piece of mind is well worth it.

Bought this in a kit with the radio and drill. The driver is compact strong and very durable. From screws to lag bolts this driver handles them all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fat51flcc Great tools for the average household DIY'er
Used the impact driver and saw out of this kit. I was looking for a replacement circular saw to replace an old Craftsman one that had older electrical on it (30+ years old). Considering a corded model is around $100-$130, i figured I would spend the extra to get a impact drill. The drill is great seems to have enough power to get all the DIY projects you could ever need. With one battery I am sure if you were working on something all day it would be tough to accomplish your task, but everyday smaller tasks this kit does the job. Great deal, Great warranty on the Ryobi products (lifetime service and battery).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Butch well designed
I only needed one drill and saw so have not used the smaller drill. I like the drill as it is lighter than my previous one and has good power. The one thing I miss is the light showing the bit area that my recent other drills have had. I thought this was standard with all new drills and was disappointed this one did not have it.
I was very impressed with the saw. It is very well disigned and thought out. It is easy to adjust for differing cuts or angles and I really like the ease of the safety switch to just push down on it instead of having to push a button in which I have always found to be awkward.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Westly Great option with less weight
I upgraded from an older Ridgid drill to the new hammer drill, but it's a bit heavier and came with the 4AH battery. I wanted a lighter drill with the 2AH batteries, and this fit the bill. Still plenty of power, but much lighter between the battery and drill. I often use these for assembly and the lighter weight is great along with still using 18V batteries so Everything I have is interchangeable. That's why I didn't want to go to the 12v units.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GEORGE Tools work well, but should include more batteries.
I am happy with the performance of all 3 tools and the charger is fast. It takes 20 to 30 minutes to charge and the lithium ion battery works longer than other tools with Nicad batteries. Negatives: 1) there is only one battery for 3 tools. If I had 2 batteries, I would not have to switch between tools (drill with one and drive with the other. I also would not have to wait as often for a recharge. 2) One of the reasons I bought RIDGID is their lifetime warranty. I sent in the required paperwork over 2 weeks ago for the lifetime warranty and have had no response yet. 3) RIDGID does not offer the lifetime warranty for battery only purchases. I am waiting to decide whether to purchase other tools that include the lifetime battery.
