Hi, I'm a new member and I'm looking at buying my first set of tools. I've got a mis-match of hand me downs which I need to replace as they are unable to keep up with the tasks I've got to do. I've been doing renovations on my new old house and so need at least a quality drill and circular saw for all sorts of projects including building a shed and repairing a deck and shed. A combo kit seems to be the best bet and currently, my local HD is carrying over a few sale prices on combo kits from their flyer a few weeks ago. The choices are either a Ridgid Max Select 4-Tool XLi 24V lithium ion kit or a Milaukee 4-tool V18 lithium ion kit. Both kits have the same 4 tools (circular saw, reciprocating saw, hammer drill and flashight) same accessories (2 batteries and 1 hour charger) and are the same price - $489 Canadian. The only difference I can see is that the Milwaukee comes in a hard case and the Ridgid has a carry bag. Both kits seem like good deals, so I'd really appreciate any comments, feedback, recommendations that anyone has on which kit to buy. Thanks.
No announcement yet.
Ridgid Max Select XLi or Milwaukee V18 combo kit?
