Gen5x is probably the best bang for your buck, i don't think you'll get that quality of tools are that price from another brand, fuel combo is double the price.  The tools are all solid, nothing too special but solid performers, my only complaint is the saw has a plastic for the blade guard and is low RPM @ 3400 rpm.

Ridgid is a very good deal but they really don't have anything that really wows. If you need more power, you may be better piecing together a kit. Get the new, powerful tools that you need. Tools where you don't need the top of the industry power, get reconditioned, used or new-older models on sale.

You're a bit late for Ridgid.  They didn't sell as well as home depot expected over the holidays so there were some incredible deals a month or two ago.  Brushless drill and brushless circular saw w/ two batteries got down to $129 in some stores, but it's still a pretty good deal now at $199.

The problem is you can only get the recip saw in the big gen5x kit but that kit has the brushed drill, impact, and circular saw.

I'd suggest these depending on your needs
