What? I needed the 3/8 ratchet. Alone that’s like $99. For $199 I got 5 good tools and some batteries. I’ll use these m12s a lot. Maybe I’ll even keep them in my truck? Usually I grab at least two of any of these tools per day.

“Look how much I saved on the tools I didn’t need by buying the big kit that included the one I did need!!” said no one... but we’re all guilty!

I have added a few more tools and multiple batteries, including an HD12.0. I got hung up on wanting a bunch of larger capacity batteries but realized that the CP3.0’s were far more practical and so I snagged a bunch of them instead at 2/$60.

Amazon and Home Depot have the best deals on the 12.0.
I got my 12.0 for $145 off Amazon but then they ran a deal where you could get a 12.0 and an 8.0 for $199. I split the kit with buddy so I got the 8.0 and he got the 12.0 for his chainsaw.

As to the “buy a kit for one tool”, I’m going to call BS because I was guilty of the same thing and have used every single tool multiple times over. Although I bought the 8 tool kit for at least 4 of the tools in the first place.

Now I’m headed off to pick up a two pack of the CP6.0 batteries for $80.

Anyone else checking out the new M12 90 deg die grinder?

I love the idea, I just can’t reconcile the price. I know I would use it all the time though.

“I don’t have a problem... I can quit anytime!”

I’m just making fun. I agree that once you have ‘em, they get used. I just bought a 4-tool combo, as well... but I can quit anytime I want!

Man yall have got me itchin to spend money now. I have ridgid kit with drill impact and sawzall,.dewalt for my 3/8 electric impact, and snap on for my big 1/2 impact. It would be nice to consolidate all to one battery and charger, but I really like the power my dewalt impact has, and the home kits include bit driver impacts not a true 3/8 drive impact like I need for cars. Whats the battery life on these when used daily with a 4 or 5 ah battery? My dewalt will go like 3 weeks or so used daily on stuff. Less if I am pretending its a 1/2 impact.

My electrical contractor just switched from Rigid to Milwaukee for warranty alone.

In order to get any warranty on the Rigid tools, you need to send the whole kit back, not just the defective tool. So, he gathered up 19 tools in total to get warranty on 3 batteries a drill and a sawzall.

I haven’t punished the new stuff enough to gauge battery life but I have lots of batteries so swapping is not an issue. They also have so many sizes now that you can mix and match for the specific job you are doing.

I bought the compact 3.0’s for fast and light work but have 4, 5, 8 and even 12 Ahr options if I need more.

My old 18v Milwaukee stuff came with 2.4Ah batteries and they were more than adequate. I redid the back fence at our old house and was able to remove and replace 3/4 of it on a single battery. That was 3/4 of a 75lb box of 2 1/4” deck screws on a single battery which I find to be pretty impressive. The new batteries are half the size and hold twice the capacity so I don’t see battery life being an issue.

I only had 3 x 2.4Ah batteries for my old kit but I have at least 10 now, the smallest being 3.0 Ah.

I scored a two pack of the CP3.0’s off eBay for $80 shipped so it’s also easier than ever to stock up on spare batteries.

My kit came with the 4.0’s but the 3.0’s are so much smaller and lighter. Way cheaper too.

And this little guy is my new best friend.

Purchased during Black Friday pricing based on ZeroClient’s recommendation and I couldn’t be happier.

It’s like a man’s version of the Dyson Cordless vacuums.

You know how the saying goes, right? Just search up “scam tool websites”.
Yup! A bunch of them popped up around Christmas and it’s seems there’s a new one or two every week since.
I figured it was too good to be true. I was going to look into it when I got into work today but wanted to see if anyone else had any experience before I researched.
