I got the free battery with mine but I think that stopped at the end of June. The free tool comes with the LXT211 &LXT218.
I got the LXT239 for $329, and I got the free battery on the spot. They said the battery promotion was through July.

I just received the Makita BTW 450Z 1/2" impact driver today and will be getting the jigsaw delivered on Thurs.

depends on "the job"

use it alot for

cutting under shot staples in new floor installs
cutting random nails or metal lath
cutting a saddle
cutting bolts on side of toilet
angle iron
clean hardened thinset, cement, and the occasional dirty spackle knife
rough sharpen chisel
any other task where i can find a sue for a diamond blade....

I was about to order the brushless kit but changed my mind last minute....

was filling out my credit card and then about to hit the button...

I already have the brushless impact and I want to buy some cordless nailers so I'm not gonna do it.
