Hot Lithium Ion Drill/Driver Deal


HD is currently offering a Ridgid 18V Lithium-Ion drill/driver with one (1) battery and a charger for $99. The same model with two (2) batteries and the charger is $179 so they simply removed one battery to lower the price. If you're undecided or on a budget, it could be a very good way to break into a new 18V Lithium-Ion system if you don't need the two batteries to start off with. Figure that another battery could come about later on either by direct purchase or with another 18V cordless tool deal purchase such as a reciprocating saw, circular saw, jigsaw, impact driver, etc.

Hot Lithium Ion Drill/Driver Deal


UPDATE:

I was in two HD's yesterday here in AZ and each one had a big pile of them all stacked up. I haven't seen the battery by itself anywhere but even if you bought two (2) of these deals, at $198 you'd still come in $1 under the Milwaukee 18V Li-Ion and Makita 18V Lithium-Ion models that they're selling, AND you'd have a second battery charger AND a second drill/driver body as well. That's more than just a pretty good deal. Plus, all three of those 18V drill/drivers are made in China so it's not as though you'd be losing anything based upon the country of origin. If I didn't already own my Panasonic 15.6V NiMh, I'd snatch a couple of those up post haste. IMO, it's a great way to break into the 18V AND Lithium-Ion platforms as well.

Merry Christmas.
