  • Ridgid 18v 8pc. Kit

    A new item coming to HD this week. My store is expected to get their shipment on the 27th. It is an 18v (Nicad batteries ) 8 piece combo for $499

    Here is what is included.

    - Drill
    - Impact Driver
    - Jig Saw
    - Recip Saw
    - Caulk Gum
    - Circ. Saw
    - Flashlight
    - 7.2v Screwdriver

    For 500 bucks I think this is a pretty good deal since the 5 piece kit is $449. The sku is 660-827 for anyone interested in checking when their local HD will be getting theirs in.

    Okay, so it has the nicads. What's with Ridgid anyway, that kit should have 3.0 AH lithiums. Heck everyone else is coming out with lithiums and here is Ridgid lagging behind. I have that 5 piece nicad set and I like it, would like to have the jigsaw and that makes the 8 piece worth the price. Unless you have a few big caulking jobs to do that cordless caulk gun won't see much action. Josh said the higer AH lithiums are coming, so unless they are offered in a kit looks like anyone wanting Ridgid will have a set of nicads and a set of lithiums if it's 18 volt they want and not 24. I really don't see a problem with this situation.
