Comments about XRP 18V Cordless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit:
Bought this to add an impact driver and new batteries to my Old Faithful DeWalt combo kit. The impact driver is awesome! It seems to run forever. I was pleasantly surprised that the drill is such a heavy duty unit. It is much sturdier than the standard drill in some of the DeWalt kits (including my old one). I have always expected the lighter duty unit to fail because the plastic gear housing flexes so much under load. This unit has a metal housing that feels much stronger.
The batteries are heavy and while better than the old standard NiCads and hold a charge well, they are not as good as modern Lion batteries. But they do fit all the old style DeWalt tools that in my case have a lot of life left in them especially since I am not using them every day anymore (former pro). An added bonus was that the charger is also much better and brought my old batteries back to life a bit more.
If you do not already own an older kit with multiple tools, I would highly recommend paying up for a modern lithium ion set. But, for a lower cost alternative, these tools are high quality, commercial grade tools at economy prices.
I did have an issue with the impact driver. It quit within a week. CPO was great about the return. They emailed a slip, I dropped the set off at FedEx and they sent out a replacement the same day. I can't speak highly enough about their customer service. And the replacement is running perfectly.
