Rated 5 out of 5 by THIS IMPACT DRIVER IS A BEAST! I work as a automotive mechanic. Did a lot of research on different 1/4'' impact drivers & was going to settle for the Makita. FORTUNATELY they were sold out at Home Depot. I was impatient and started looking at what they had to offer in stock. I know my Dad who is a jack of all trades (automotive, construction, plumbing, etc) has a 18V Ridgid drill & he said he loves that tool. So I called him & he said yes Ridgid is a solid brand. I bought and used it today, mannn this thing has got some solid torque and is very fast! I use it to take off undercarriage bolts & various things off cars @ work. It has plenty of power and is very portable. The light is also very bright and is good for using in dark areas of the car where you can't see. I highly recommend this tool. You will not regret it I promise! February 23, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by No Batteries, No charger, Very poor value. No batteries included? No charger included? No carrying case included? Why would anyone buy this??? October 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow What a tool Now let me tell you once you buy this product you will forget any other brand or products, this will be the only tool you will need. Its light weighted battery's last forever you will never feel its a 12v best tool Ridgid came out with plus its backed by life time warranty what more could you ask for June 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well built Bought this impact driver to go along with the 12v drill. Drove a a lot of screws and bolts on the last project. Like the compact size and the power. Works great for furniture and cabinet building to get into tight spaces. August 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good deal on tool only option! I ordered this online and it came three days later. One word of caution, the batteries that are referenced in the on line information are not the correct batteries for this tool. I alerted HD to this mistake and they said they would look into it. The battery that this tool uses is the same one that is used for the earlier model of their 12V compact drill, which I own and love. Last year I went out and bought the hi capacity battery for the drill and am now using same battery for the impact driver - the battery lasts forever and I highly recommend it when using the impact driver. The driver out of the box worked as expected, has a good quality feel to it, the light is handy and the trigger control is just what you need. I like the size and convenience of the tool as it fits into my tool box easily, along with the drill which is about the same size. I easily powered 3/8" X 4" lag bolts into KD spruce dimensional lumber. I even used it while restoring my little Dodge truck, installing the door and window trim - plenty of control and no over torquing the screws. Very pleased and highly recommended. August 6, 2014
