This is my first post, so please be kind. I was just at The Home Depot in Milltown, NJ and saw this in their markdown tools table. This kit comes with the following:

18 Volt 3/8 in Drill - Driver
Model P205

18 Volt Impact Driver
Model P231
They sell the P230 separately for $69 (not sure what the difference is) and that is WITHOUT the battery, this package has two.

2 X 18 volt Battery Pack
Model P100
$39.97/battery

18 Volt 1 Hour Charger
P110

This looks like a specialty item cause Ryboi has it labeld "While Supplies Last, Special Buy" on the box itself. HD had it at a $189 or $179 value (I don't recall).

UPC is 033287144945

My receipt shows 033287144945

Let me know if you need any more information. Hope this is a "HOT DEAL"

Thats a good deal, my ryobi drill is starting to go out after 5 years of good use, may as well get the same drill with an impact included! Great post OP I know ryobi isn't as good as dewault or some of those but for the price and as many times as I drop and beat these things Ryobi is the only way to go, good drill for great price!

This is not a markdown. It's a special buy for Columbus Day. All stores should have them, although they may have been on the floor since they were received a week or two ago.

Batteries are NiCd.

I just bought a Dewalt that I posted about in another thread for $140 total. I'm a light user, but do appreciate and need good tools (when the little ones, 1 and 3, let me have a few hours to myself.) Is this set decent enough or should I keep my Dewalt. I don't have an impact driver and keep hearing about how great they are. My old Dewalt drill just died so I need something soon.

Holding out for a Lith ion set, NiCd batts are useless for me at my house as the batteries will go bad before I use the drill a handful of times.

FWIW, I've had a Dewalt NiCd 18v drill since 2004 and the NiCd batteries have always worked just fine. I always kept one charged and one in the drill and never had an issue. The only reason I need a new drill now is because it started to smoke last time I used it! The batteries still work.

Well, if you use them there is no reason to think they won't last a decent time. If they sit unused & uncharged they crap out, hence why I said they were useless for me at my house.

I have found these to be as good as my DeWalt Drills. Actually, I have replaced the clutch twice in the DeWalt. They used to may a Ryobi Jobsite version that was heavy duty...I still have mine and have been using it several time each week for 7 or 8 years.

Once you use an impact driver, you will wonder how you made do without one before. Seriously, it makes driving that much easier.

Too bad ni-cads don't hold the charge for extended periods, sounds like what you need. And you can't just store them in the charger. I guess they are better for someone who uses them almost daily and keeps them charged.

You missed out a few months back on the P814, but this may be a better way to go. Sure, the Li-ion sound like a good idea, but they are still too new to offer the relaibility of the ni-cads. Plus you can "refresh" the ni-cads and keep them going longer. I haven't had any problem with my ryobi li-ion since getting it, except for the first "dead" battery. Since swapping that out things have been good, but I too constantly need to be putting another battery in the charger. That said, if I need to buy new batteries I'll be grabbing a set of the ni-cads.
