im rough on my gear but not abusive. the rubber grips were peeling off, the clips to hold the battery in didnt hold half the time and i go to drill something and my battery would go flying out. the batteries were dying fast, the circular saw fell off a shelf in my work van(fell about 16") on to plywood and the metal bottom cracked. they just seemed like junk. the big thing i miss though are the belt hooks sooo nice to have. also in the other hole i put one of these magnets and it would hold a handful of screws.

I've bought Ridgid 18V cordless Impact and drill seperate (in the end I've got 5 batteries because of sales and 2 chargers). And have bought corded circular saw and re-cip (Dont have a need for cordless). I've probably spent more money on everything seperate then a cordless set. But you only get 2 batteries a big set and I have 5 so if I were to do the math I probably would have spent the same amount with the amount of batteries i have.

Might help you.
