Rated 5 out of 5Â by djamesbjr Great power for a 12v
I have the jobmax 12v it excellent for the voltage and sizes. So when I needed a compact drill I found the 18v but it was to big, not much room in the truck. When I found the 12v I knew it should have enough power for the job. Surprisingly it had more power than expected. But with all that power the battery dies faster.

Drill seemed ok at first, after a few uses just stopped working ,it was a problem with battery contacts , tried new battery and was good for a while , I returned it when it happened again and bought a milwalkee.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by photog Drill battery life is disappointing
This tool has ok power for its size but the the battery life is very poor. Rigid does NOT honor their lifetime warranty agreement despite properly registering the tools - which is a huge disappointment! If you value your time, steer clear as customer support is exceedingly dismal, frustrating, and inconsistent at best. I would not buy in the future as this brand will disappoint in the long run.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Snitckt Decent Drill When it Works
Overall this is a neat little drill, with moderate power, but it has one HUGE caveat: the BATTERIES are horrible. Comes with two little Lithium batteries that have a lifespan that is shorter than a fruit fly.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by OldWrangler Don't buy this tool
I am 76 y/o and have some weakness in my hands and wrist. I bought this drill because it is comfortable and lightweight. When it works it is a nice tool but that is only when it works. I have had constant battery problems. I have 4 batteries and 2 chargers just to have enough power to get through some projects. Drill a few holes and drive a few screws and the battery is dead. In addition, after owning these 2 drill for about a year, I am having trouble with the chuck coming loose. Frequently the chuck will loosen when a drill bit is in the wood. It is hard to rechuck that bit and then the problem is getting the bit out of the wood. Sometimes after drilling a hole the bit will just fall out and naturally it rolls to the least accessable spot.This happens frequently and is very annoying and time consuming. Calling or writing Ridgid is no help as they don't honor any warranty. They suggest I take it to a local tool repair station but the only one close has discontinued repairing Ridgid because of too many problems. I've seen my last Ridgid product.
