    FYI, they have a flash sale today on a couple different combos that include the 1/2" impact wrench:

    https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-...attery-and-18-Volt-Charger-R86011SB/303037082

    https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-...0-Ah-Batteries-Charger-Bag-R9608SBN/305658528

    They may have better deals for Memorial Day, or Father's Day, but these are better than normal pricing.

    Looks like they now have a 1100 ft. lb. impact wrench, and a couple of stubby 3/8" drive ones. I'm sure that they're not as nice as the Milwaukee offerings, but it's nice to see they're adding more tools to the system.

    Yeah, the kits I linked were $149 and $179 respectively.

    There will be other deals, and this was not the best one. Back in March was a pretty good one, impact with 2 Octane batteries for $149.

    That impact is my new fav tool. Got one earlier this year @ $149 as well.

    A key deciding point to buy Ridgid is the lifetime warranty on their tools AND batteries.
    Already had a batt replacement on another tool a couple years ago. Went to HD, dropped it off, they called, went back and picked up a new one. Easy peasy.

    I just got a new wet dry vac from them too. Haven’t used it yet.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they have some Black Friday deals coming up. That's when I got my combo set last year.

    https://slickdeals.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=9501785&d=1603731667 is the PDF for this year. Some deals are live now. I just picked up two Gorilla platforms. They fold down to 3.25" tall and I may use them camping as well as around the house.

    Actually these are pretty awesome. They just fit behind the back seat, although not with the legs locked, so I wouldn't put anything heavy up there like this. For sleeping bags and stuff though, hell yeah. If one of the back seats are folded down though, it will lock.

    It also just fits under an open door with my slight lift, and like previously mentioned, folds down very flat. Perfect size for my two trunks I bring camping. For $21 each (w/ military discount) they're a steal.

    @ffxcores - I’m definitely gonna grab that Ridgid vac hose kit for $20.

    Got the same exact one already. It was bundled in with the new vac, but I really like the hose and having another to add to the distance of use is appealing. Also, just like the fabled 10mm, the very accessory you want to use at the time inevitably goes missing. Be nice to have an extra set of those too.

    Couple other doo dads look interesting as well. Flashlights......can NEVER EVER have enough flashlights. I need a new headband one......



    EDIT- The more I look at that stand, the more I think of uses. Probably going to get one. Lol!
    (Put grip tape on the top so you don’t fall the F off if it’s wet or muddy. Or clumsy. Or just dumb [me].)

    I have that same type folding leg aluminum step stool and love it. It looks to be only about half as long, maybe 2', from Harbor freight for like 10-12$.

    The folding platform I use to get to the top of the X while washing, most recently it was a life saver working on the K30 pickup. It's lightweight, easy to stow and cheap.
