    buy a cheapy and keep the receipt for purchase. If it craps out under 12 months they will replace it .
    If you dont use a drill very often get a plug-in one cos your battery will always be flat otherwise.

    Maybe a bit more than what you want to spend, but I got one of these kits when I wanted to de-nail and screw down the roof of our house. I expected the impact driver to die during that job, but wanted a compact driver drill combo and was on a budget...ironically to replace my Hitachi ones which I had no end of trouble with. Both tools are three years old now, get used heaps ... like every couple days. I am amazed they are still going. One battery died, took it to Mitre10, replaced it no questions asked. The other two have been sweet and hold charge for days. The impact driver has now done two house roofs, reclad and roofed a bach, and clad a couple maimais, screwed down two large decks and clad and roofed three sheds, one a large four bay. Best 200 bucks I've spent on tools I reckon.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    I have a Ryobi sander not cordless but the same colour scheme as there current stuff, think it was $80 and it had taken an absolute thrashing. It doesn't know the meaning of duty cycle.

    Would definitely buy Ryobi stuff again.
