That is dirt cheap.. when I was looking at that set it was 250 at home depot,

I still like the Ridgid kit better becaues the drill is actually a drill with chuck rather than a 1/4 bit driver.

I've never ever seen a 1/4 drill bit spin true, even $60 milwakee drill bits.

my 10.8 is a Whopping 2Lbs with Bit....Imo that is on the heavier side and there's No way the Hitachi is "bulky" due to its length over all its smaller then any pistol style gun.

Go Hilti man, they are the best tool with the best warranty. You should have a rep at your local Home Depot.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Bosch. One of theee best quality tools out there would be a tie between Makita (Japan) and Bosch (German). Here's a short clip on the one that slipped through the radar:

1 annoying thing i came across a couple of the lower end units was the light would Only come on when the trigger is activated...which this bosch has....i know its pity...but when working in low light condition's i would like to be able to tap the trigger activate the light....set my bit and screw away....Minor i know...but when spending the $$ you gotta consider every little detail.

also the sheer trigger feel to most guns is pretty good but a couple i tried it was 100% ON or OFF trigger action which is not very desirable.

I brought my 10.8 Impact to a job site for a day to try and install some 3" floor screw's to secure a sub floor and it barely did it at Full charge....in comparison to the one's you see contractor's on TV using that Punch in Framing screw's with little effort those are the BIG BOY 18V+ unit's......so imo 800lbs is a bit of an overestimation on makita's part.

Here's a apples to apples comparison. Bosch Model:PS402 is the same size as the above and is:

Length: 6-1/2"
No Load BPM: 0 - 3,000
No Load RPM: 0 - 1,800/min
Rating: 12V
Torque (in. lbs.): 800
Weight (lbs.): 2.2

http://www.boschtools.com/Products/T...px?pid=PS40-2A

Between Makita and Bosch your getting a top notch product so it kind of boils down to price.

actually, that's not apple to apple. the 800 in. lbs will compare with the following from Makita.

http://makita.com/en-us/Modules/Tool....aspx?ID=26528

Makita and Bosch has the same combo setup. one drill is a ~200 in lbs and the other is a ~800 in lbs.

here is bosch combo kit.

http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-CLPK21-1...3351438&sr=8-1

here is makita combo kit.

http://www.amazon.com/Makita-LCT203W...3351479&sr=1-3

You can't go wrong with either units or combos. I believe these two brands are the best out there.

Edit: Price aside I get the feeling you like the Makita silver case better..
