Recykaler- go to home depot's site and search for R884. Bare tool only, no batteries or charger- $77.00. This is a max select model for 24v Li or 18v Li / Ni-cd. If you already have batts and charger, you are golden.
Hope this helps.
Edit: Recently bought this exact model myself and I love it. I'm using 18v nicads if you are curious.
The site states that it is only a online item but you never know. In my experience, I would call the stores in your area one by one and ask to speak to the tool dept. manager and inquire if they have it in stock. I have made retail purchases before for items that were "online only." I did have to order mine as none of the locals had it (ohio).
I went to my local H.D. today. Talked to the contractors tool manager. He called Ridgid, while I was waiting. Whoever he talked to told him to tell me it was not available as a single unit. When I insisted it was, he asked again and was told the units sold individually are recons. It is available online from H.D. as some of you pointed out. Guess there are morons in every organization. Perhaps I'm being too harsh, lets call them "uninformed"
Anyway, guess I will be ordering online. I'm assuming I can get the warenty this way also. Thanks to each and everyone of you for your help!
I didn"t notice any info on HD's site stating that the R884 for $77 is a refurb. You should be in the clear. Order, register, be happy. Also, a search of the reconditioned Ridgid power tools on HD's site did not display the R884. However, there was a refurb cordless impact for $89 that I didn't need to see.
The online r884 does not include the warrenty you get at H.D. Its a 3 year limited.
Home Depot is not involved with the Limited Lifetime Service Agreement. This "warranty" is between the manufacturer (Ridgid) and end user. You must register to receive this benefit- it is not automatic at time of purchase. You will find paperwork in the box that details the process.
