Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mcgeee LSA is great!
This combo kit replaced my Dewalt kit (which was good). I stepped up to the lithium ion battery kit so I would not have to replace the batteries every 2 years. I did register it for the LSA. I have had this kit for 2 years & the batteries finally failed. I brought the batteries to my local Home Depot with my LSA paperwork. They checked them & submitted everything to Ridgid. A week later I had 2 new batteries in the mail. I registered them with Ridgid on the phone...easy. LSA just saved me $200 on new 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garagewoodworker Strong and durable
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 Apwillard1986 Great saw with usable power!
This saw is unique in my tool arsenal as it is the only tool that I bought independent of a project requiring it. I just wanted it and it has since proved itself to be invaluable. This saw is powerful and it is usable! I've used many reciprocating saws that where big, heavy, and intimidating. They make lots of noise and often vibrate things apart before they cut them apart. This saw is a winner because it is so usable. It stays where you put it and goes where you point it and makes quick work of anything in-between. You are going to want a high capacity battery to power it as it does use some juice but that is to be expected. All in all a great tool!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kellry2 Powerful aggressive Recip saw
I purchased this after returning the corded model. The corded couldn't hold a blade. This cordless not only holds the blade but cuts better and faster. I was shocked at how much better this saw finished the job that the corded saw started. Depending on the material you're cutting determines the battery life. Basic wood and nothing heavy the battery will last a good 30 minutes. Heavy material the battery is dead in 10. These are the 1.5 amp/hour batteries. If you need longer run time, then get the 2.0 or 4.0 Amp/hour batteries. This is an awesome powerful saw. You will not be disappointed with this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Apwillard1986 Excellent saw!
This saw is everything a tool like this should be. It is powerful yet compact and lightweight (in the best sense of the word). It is incredibly easy to control. I have a corded circular saw that is bigger and more powerful but this is the tool I grab nine times in ten. A tool you use because it is convenient is a useful tool. I wish it came with the rip fence but I guess we can't have everything.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chaz Great Design, Plastic Levers Strip Out
The design is great. The saw is lightweight with plenty of power for smaller jobs. My only complaint is that the levers to lock the base plate are made of plastic and strip out if you're not careful.
The levers have small teeth on the inside so you can reposition them, which is a nice design feature, but the material won't stand up to repeated use unless you are careful not to put too much pressure on the lever with your thumb. The levers should be made from steel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ashmccullough Tough enough
I'm hard on my drills. Drilling through block ,brick, concrete, metal. I'm the guy that pushes hard to get the job done. the only thing i get from the drill is that it wants more. It's great to have a tool that puts out as much a I give it. I've dropped it, kicked it, and put in battery after battery, working it as hard as i can. It doesn't overheat, it doesn't stop, doesn't drop the bits. It just keeps putting out. It sits great in my hand and is well balanced. It's not too heavy and it's got alot of torque. I enjoy the hammer option, drill option and screw option. All in all, this is a great drill.
