    2 batteries and a free tool?

    so for the ryobi deal, you get 2 batteries, a charger and a bag for $149. add a free tool.

    OR

    the link i posted above gives you 2 batteries, a charger and a bag for $149. with a bunch of tools.

    i guess the deal makes sense if you already have a set and looking to expand......

    Well there goes my idea of stealing your batteries.

    Seriously though. I bought a Ryobi impact driver 4 plus years ago and used the shit out of it. it was a deal where you buy a charger/battery you get a battery for free and then bought the tool priced pretty low. years later I wanted a recip saw (sawzall) and found it priced at like $70 bucks tool only. Ryobi had me hooked at this point with their battery so I wanted to stay with their brand. I ended up buying a drill, recip saw, circular saw, flash light, 2 battery, 1 charger kit for like $129. The circular saw is awesome, cuts more square than my plug in.

    I don't use them to make money just my hobbies, with Ryobi brand i'm now rolling with 5 tools (if you count the flash light which I use more than I had expected) 4 batteries and 2 chargers for around $230 :imgone:

    I got a Bauer impact from Hazard Fraught. $100 and got an extra battery, impact adapters, magnetic sockets, and a bag thing that's worthless. I've had it for about three weeks now.

    It's not bad, but I wish it had torque control and better speed control.

    I have seen a few of the 1/4" Bauer impacts drivers on job sites that were total pos's. Overheating, short battery life, and not the best control. Just a heads up that it my not hold up if you are using it a lot.

    So far so good. I've been using it for a while, basically as a "bolt/nut remover" for everything. I still hand-tighten everything.
