I think this is a great deal for 159.99, They just released the GEN5 Kit 4ah battery and charger. Going to pick one up tomorrow to replace my craftsman 1/2.

Remember to take 15 minutes and register the wrench, battery and the charger for the lifetime service agreement. thumbsup

I agree I would not buy the Milwaukee tool for $450.

But one should be looking at a "line" of cordless tools and see which is likely to meet your budget and needs. Then buy one tool with battery and charger, an extra battery and then all "bare tools". Bare tools are typically very reasonably priced.

For Milwaukee I have a drill, impact driver, impact wrench, 4" grinder, vacuum, weed whacker, hedge trimmer.

Glad I saw this, great deal! Purchased immediately.

Can't wait to get my grubby mitts on this. I've worked on some cars in the past where the clearance was just not there and I couldn't get a breaker bar or anything. I would gladly pay this money to be able to put torque in tight spaces and angles without breaking a sweat.
