So some of you know that I was looking at the ridgid gen5x 5 piece combo kit and then I was looking through the acme tools catalog and found this would it be worth it or just stick with the ridgid 85c67f26cf55dc77fcbc56ad0d3167ce.jpg

That's a pretty lousy deal.  You can get the same tools with onekey on the drill and driver minus the flashlight for $150 less at home depot.  You can also get it with a circ saw if that's more useful to you.

Gen5x is brushless

The GEN5X combo is not brushless, all the tools are 4 pole permanent brushed motors.

 

The Ridgid tool kit is a nice kit for the money, for 150 more you get brushless but not the saw, personally I prefer the Milwaukee Tools over the Ridgid, they are much more solid feeling and performance wise have an edge over the Ridgid.  The thing I do not care for on the Ridgid is the plastic blade guard on the circular saw.  I feel like I am going to snap it off one of these days.

They do have brushless tools, they have brushless impact, drill, and circular saw, but they also have brushed tools.  For their big combo you only get the brushed tools unfortunately, I was under this impression I was getting brushless tools until I looked closer into it when I won't the kit.  Kind of silly on Ridgid if you ask me, their brushed drill has more power though than their brushless which I also found odd.  On their brushless circ saw you get a little more metal and an extra 100 rpms, stepping up to a whopping 3500.

Other than the blade guard how is the ridgid kit

It's a good solid kit, sawzall is good, drill is good, impact is good, the light is okay, nothing special and the isn't bad either, personally I think this kit should cost 399, if they want 499 they need to go brushless or throw another battery or give 5.0s. Runtime is very good though.
