What are the options as far as 24v sets now? I picked up the 5pc NiCd set for 299 after new years but haven't opened it as I'm really leaning toward Li-ion for the longer runtime and greater torque. But the only 24v set I see is the 3pc for $379. I'd love to get a 4 pc for $400 or even $250! Are those still available, or are there any other options for 24v other than the current 3pc set?I have to original four piece 24v set $400 and two weeks after buying it I see it for $250.
I believe that they have discontinued the 4 piece 24 volt set. I believe the only option right now for a 24 volt set is the 3 piece one. But who knows - there may be an HD out there that still has a 4 piece set gathering dust in an overhead storage area.
Ridgid is currently the only major player who doesn't offer one...Steel City, Shop Fox, Delta, General International, Hitachi, Jet, Craftsman, Woodtek, Sunhill, DeWalt, and Grizzly all have at least one....some have several. Even Canadian companies like Craftex, King, and Canwood all have one.
I got the Ridgid featherboard the other week, and it says that it works with the 3650 and 3660, so it must be in the works.
Josh, can you shed some light on this for us?
Regarding the new 3.0 Ah LI batteries, funny thing is, apparently these new items and batteries are *supposed* to be available / in stores for this weekend (hopefully). And yes, some are listed on eBay. However, I just checked the HD webpage to look at their flyer (hasn't been one in 2 or 3 weeks), and there is not a single mention of these new tools or anything. If Ridgid doesn't advertise, and HD doesn't to either, is this forum really the only advertising spot for Ridgid tools??
