Deals We Love: Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Combo
Some of the biggest names in power tools partnered with The Home Depot for a month of savings.
There are deals we love and then there are deals we simply cannot ignore. This week in Deals We Love, we’re highlight two of the latter. Some of the biggest players in the cordless tools game are offering deep discounts and free tools through The Home Depot’s season-long Black Friday promotion.
Milwaukee 18-Volt Cordless Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit (+ Free Tool)
Milwaukee’s M18 Fuel series tools are some of the most advanced and powerful cordless tools on the market. They feature 5.0Ah lithium-ion batteries that run longer and can be swapped in and out of any of Milwaukee’s 175 top-range line of cordless tools.
This particular deal includes a 1/2-in. hammer drill that delivers up to 60 percent more power than its competitors and offers 1,200 inch-pounds of torque. It also includes Milwaukee’s 1/4-in. hex impact driver and its 2,000 inch-pounds of torque.
Why We Love It: Two drills means two batteries, and that means never stopping to recharge in the middle of a project. And while Milwaukee certainly isn’t giving away its drills, with this deal — $399 for the pair — it is including a third tool, free of charge. Customers can add one of 14 cordless tools and not pay a single cent more. The list of free tools includes:
- Two Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum;
- Radius LED Compact Site Light;
- Six-port Sequential Battery Charger;
- Handheld Compact Vacuum;
- Oscillating Multi-Tool;
- Extended Capacity 5.0Ah Battery;
- Handheld Blower;
- Grinder with Paddle Switch;
- Compact Router;
- Drywall Screw Gun;
- Reciprocating Saw;
- Jig Saw;
- 1/4-in. Hex Impact Driver;
- Wireless Jobsite Speaker.
Makita 18-Volt Cordless Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit (+ Free Tool)
Makita claims to have the world’s largest 18-Volt cordless tool line-up, which means buying into this brand covers every conceivable DIY project on your list. The 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Two-Piece Combo Kit includes a 1/2-in. hammer drill that delivers 530 inch-pounds of torque. It also includes an ultra-light three-pound impact driver that delivers 1,500 inch-pounds of torque.
Both tools are engineered for longer run-time and come equipped with an on-board LED charge level indicator, so you always know how much power you have left before needing to swap out the battery. Each tool also comes with a 4.0Ah battery that takes just 40 minutes to achieve a full charge.
Why We Love It: The $249 price tag offers significant savings over the Milwaukee deal. Unless you’re a super-savvy pro, you probably won’t notice the difference in power output or run time. Like Milwaukee, Makita is also letting customers add a free 18-volt cordless tool to their purchase. Its full list of add-ons:
- Handheld Blower;
- Cut-Off/Angle Grinder;
- Compact Router with Built-In LED Light;
