Was at home depot, bought a Makita battery starter kit and the reciprocating saw was free. View attachment 519284 View attachment 519285
Not sure if you are a makita tool user or not? The reason they giving that recip saw away is because it's the 1st gen one. It has a use just not on the jobsite. Maybe good for the wifey? The good one has a hook and is brushless. They don't give those out as free tools.

Yea,, I hate to say it but if you are breaking into Makita it will give you a bad start. Makita puts their cheapest tools in the kits most of the time,, not all the time but most. Both the recip and the 6½" circ saw you want the one with the hook on it, both of those are 2nd gen tools and the better ones.
Makita does make good tools!
LOL!

I grabbed this Milwaukee drill set because I wanted the M18 15 gauge after my Senco fusion locked up and it comes out to $50 more for the drill driver and another battery (it is a 1.5ah) compared to buying the 15 gauge gun kit.


Then I found out my dad wanted a new drill for Christmas so I went back and bought another set. HD has a few m18 and m12 deals going.
