Customer Questions & Answers

Does this Rigid Impact driver come with two batteries and a charger?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, this Impact driver does not come with a battery nor does it come with a charger. There is a 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 2-Speed Drill that comes with a battery and charger but it's a drill NOT an Impact Driver.

Just what I need a compact impact driver, fits the hand just right, the variable speed is a great plus, and it is a companion to my cordless Ridgid drill and both use the same battery!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this drill I work in heating and air conditioning and I use this drill a lot for service work. I have been amazed at how long the batteries last. It has enough power to run screws in and out and the impact force easily loosens tight screws that I wouldve stripped with a screw driver. Its not as high of an rpm as the cordless drill I use to use, but its small size and weight more than make up for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow , only smaller ! Bought two of these to compliment my 3/8 inch single speed drill and jobmax 12 volt products. These impact drivers are solid, high performance tools with great warranty on top. Very powerful and very portable. A must have item to add to Ridgid 12 volt systems for anyone. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, compact, good price, good warranty I bought this impact driver to compliment the Rigid drill that uses the same batteries (so I already had the batteries). I took it to work to use on some new equipment I'm building, and I must say it has quite a bit of power for it's size. Even when you don't need all of the power/force this is capable of, it still makes driving easier screws and bolts much easier than using a regular drill because the bit tends to not slip and strip out the screw head like it might with a drill. I've only been using this for a few weeks now, but it's a great tool, and when you add on the lifetime warranty (make sure you send in the paperwork) it's a hard deal to beat. Only complaint is that HD should offer a model that comes with the batteries for people that don't already have them.
