Combination Kit choice

Hey everyone, I am looking for some opinions on a which combination kit would be a good buy. I am looking at a few different kits right now, and would appreciate some input so I could make a great purchase in the near future. These are the four kits I am looking at:

Bosch CPK60-18 18V Brute Tough 6 Tool Combo Kit

DeWALT DC6KTGA Heavy-Duty XRP 18V Cordless Hammerdrill/Drill/Driver/Circular Saw/Reciprocating Saw/Impact Driver/Cut-Off Tool/Flexible Floodlight Combo Kit

Hitachi KC18DBL Hitachi 18v li-ion 4 piece combo kit, hammer drill, circular saw, recip saw, lantern

Makita LXT600 18 Volt LXT Lithium-Ion 6-Piece Combo Kit

I figure that I'll go all out on a nice kit, going to fence in the backyard, reside and install various items in my garage, and more work on my house. If you could think of another kit that would be great, let me know. Onc again, thanks for the input.

I personally have and use the Makita kit. It is an excellent kit. I have had Dewalt in the past but had problems keeping batteries. I also had porter cable and ridgid. I would reccomend the Makita for any type of use. The batteries last and have excellent power. If you are going to be driving screws make sure you get the impact driver as well. If you never used one you will wonder why after using it. I personally will never use a drill to drive screws again.

I just bought the Milwaukee 28 volt lithiom ion set about 4 months ago. Awsome power and battery run times. Only complaint is the weight of the drill, but I guess at 28 volts they are all heavy. The circ saw is great. I can cut framing, name it.

I use Hitachi and have the kit it works great but if i had a second choice it would be makita there about the two best brands on the market by my oppinion. I have a makita corded drill which i have had for about 8 years and still works great but when it packs in it will be replaced by hitachi...

The new Makita set is nice, I must agree there. I chose the Milwaukee because I do alot of heavier work and that set just seemed to be a little more heavy duty to me, But it was a toss up for a while between the two.
