While finishing up my post about the new Makita cordless impact driver kit, I checked to see if Milwaukee’s single-battery kit was on sale. It’s currently described as being discontinued and unavailable, but I did find something of interest…
There is a new Milwaukee M18 impact driver and LED worklight combo kit, 2656-21L.
I was initially hesitant, thinking that this was an – uch – incandescent worklight, it is an LED light. It’s got a pivoting head, a hook built into the back of the handle, and it typically retails for $49.
Although not quite as post-worthy as the $99 impact driver kit I believe will become available for another holiday shopping season, $119 for a cordless impact driver, usable LED worklight, M18 and M12 multi-voltage charger, 1.5Ah battery, and carrying bag is still quite good.
Bonus: Use coupon code OCTOBERHD for an extra $10 off! The final price would then be $109 plus tax. The coupon expires any day now. I *think* that the coupon code is only good through the end of today (10/26/2016), but am hoping that it will be extended to the end of the month.
Price: $109 after coupon
At that price, $109, you’re only spending $10 more than if the single-battery impact driver kit were currently available. And hey, you might even use the LED flashlight.
Shipping is free.
Update: The price has dropped to $99, and this will be its Black Friday 2016 price! If you spent more, inquire about a price adjustment. If that’s no longer an option, you might be able to do a return and rebuy.
