Over at Home Depot, there’s a new M12 combo deal that you might be interested in. The new kit, model 2494-22B, comes with a drill/driver, impact driver, (2) 1.5Ah Li-ion batteries, and a bonus XC 3.0Ah battery.
There are a couple of things that are a little up in the air:
1) The new combo is available online (with free shipping), and is also listed as being available at some stores with “limited availability.” Clayton, a contributor, hit up his local Home Depot and found that their computer system reported plenty of inventory, but that the new combo couldn’t actually be located for in-store purchase.
To me, this indicates that the kits will be put out on the sales floor after Halloween, as part of the holiday section.
So you could either buy a kit online now, or wait until they’re put out in display in stores.
2) Home Depot’s product images show Milwaukee’s newest drill/driver and impact driver. However, the product description says that the kit comes with their model 2408-20 drill, which is a hammer drill/driver. It’s unclear whether you get the drill/driver or hammer drill/driver as part of the combo kit.
If you don’t care about whether you get the drill/driver or hammer drill/driver with the kit, then it’s a fantastic deal. If you do care, wait until someone orders the kit and reports back about which M12 drill model comes with the bundle.
This is a decent deal at $169. At $129, this is an incredible deal! Throw in the free bonus 3.0Ah battery, and it’s a great combo that will tackle most common household and jobsite drilling and driving tasks.
The included impact driver is the latest M12 non-Fuel model, 2462-20, which delivers up to 1,000 in-lbs of torque.
