Last week, I was at a local Home Depot and they had the 24 volt starter kit (1 battery and a charger) for $199.99. Before you buy it, the same HD has the 24 volt hammer drill for $199.99 and comes with 2 batteries and a charger(free drill and extra battery for the same price).
Today Ridgid informed me the maxselect impact driver will be in stores late April. I can hardly wait to pick one up to add to my Lxi set.
What is taking them so long. I thought it was suppose to come out this month. I love my 24v drill but I am tired of hold that thing up just to put screws in. At least they told you something. Thats the only thing that frustrates me is that there are never any release dates.
I hear that, Ive seen the signage/display of new products for at least a month ,but no HD employee gets informed of when the tool will be available.I even asked when the Ridgid rep would come around, didn't know. I even took pictures with my phone to show other stores what is coming and the listed part # was incorrect???? Its sort of sad I know more about what is going to be coming out than the tool mgrs at my local HD. But this may be part of the plan to create a buzz for it. When it arrives I will be there first to get mine. It just gives me more time to work a deal to get the impact and a few more toys from HD.
