Today, I went to homedepot with the intention of buying either the DeWalt 20V or Makita 18V Drill and Impact Driver Combo.
The salesman talked me out of Makita stating that their gears are all plastic and are prone to stripping. He the not only showed me the DeWalt that I was looking for but also showed me an 18V Ridgid Drill and Impact Driver Combo and mentioned the free lifetime battery replacement on Ridgid tools. So, long story short I came home with both DeWalt and Ridgid in hand thinking that I will simply return the one that I don’t want. Both have 1/2” drill and 1/4” impact driver. The lifetime battery replacement on Ridgid looks pretty lucrative, while on the DeWalt, the 20V battery seems like a plus. The DeWalt was only $20 more than the Ridgid.
I am now faced with the tough decision as to which one to keep and which to return and that is why I am posting here seeking guidance based on the vast experience of this forum’s members.
This is the link for DeWalt
Here is the link for Ridgid:
Please help me decide.
