Over at Home Depot, their Special Buy of the Day features 2 really good Ridgid tool deals.
The first deal is on a Ridgid 18V Gen5X Brushless cordless hammer drill/driver kit, and the other is on Ridgid’s R4516 portable table saw.
Both of these seem to be holiday-special tools, which to me suggests maybe they are leftover from Father’s Day deals. It also suggests that the supply might not make it through to the end of the day, and that we’re unlikely to see pricing this good again for a while.

These deals are valid thru 4am ET on 7/8/2016, unless supplies run out sooner.
Ridgid’s R86116SB 18V brushless hammer drill kit comes with their latest and greatest cordless drill, but with one catch – the kit only comes with a single 2.0Ah battery pack. Yes, a charger is also included.
That’s the only “gotcha,” making this a very good deal.
When looking at pro-grade drill kits in the $100-125 range, there are often 2 potential tradeoffs to save on cost. Either everything is cheapened a little bit – for lack of a better way of saying it – or only a single battery is included.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather get a 1-battery kit than a 2-battery kit with inferior components.

Ridgid’s R4516 10″ 15A portable table saw is also on sale, for $199. It has 24″ ripping capacity (right side), and I don’t think I ever noticed it, but it also has a retractable handle and 6-inch wheels for portability.
It’s rare to find a pro-brand jobsite table saw for $200. This deal has come around during past holiday deal seasons, and is likely to come around again in a few months.
But in the meantime, this is the best price on a non-homeowner-grade table saw. The next-best option is Dewalt’s DW745, which is currently a full $100 more expensive.
