ok three years ago i baught the big ridgid combo set. i havent had anny problems. they still work and they hav been to hell and back. but i baught the recip saw hammer drill combo around christmas. i noticed some changes in the drill. mainly the way the clutch and the way you set it to hammer drill. so far the drill is fine but the saw is another storry. a month after i baught it i was cutting a peice of 3/8 all thread and pop it started smokeing and went motionless. thinking maybe the batery was just fried i tried the other one and the saw fried that batery aswell and still dident move . so then i tried the baterys in my drill and nothing. so i went to home depot with my recipt and explained the problem and since the saw looked almost new the exchanged it with no problems. and the new one worked fine untill yesterday the exact same thing happened. and this time home depot said they arent allowed to exchange it. i am just curious if there may be a recall on a faulty part. or if i just hav verry bad luck. i am somewhat worried about the power tool quality now. the saw is the r8442 No 0-2500 / min 18v anny help wound be great
