Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cpl24900606 SMALL, SIMPLE, POWERFUL, PRICE BUSTING IMPACT
I've owned one of these wee pocket rocket impacts for several years.never let me down.
It's compact , lightweight and powerful.
The light and belt hook are great when up high or in dark spaces.
It's taken some punishment and few 6ft+ falls and gets up and carries on doing what says on tin.
It's now my second choice to my new 3 mode RIDGID IMPACT., but never left behind always on site.
RECOMMEND TO TRADESMEN..

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NoelWPB I like the tool... hate the trigger.
I have owned this tool for a little over a month. It was bought for the purpose of cutting 1/8 inch metal plates, chain link fence, grout, tile and all kind of other things. It does shut down if you use too much force but if you pace yourself it cuts fine. The thumb trigger can be difficult to use after an exhausting day. It does eat batteries so plan on getting a pack of 4.0 amp batteries. Overall I'm satisfied and it has definitely become my go to tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ua1770 Not far behind DeWalt
I was very unsure about buying this grinder after seeing the reviews, but I am glad I bought it. I used a 20V Max grinder for a few days cutting steel angles for fire doors. This grinder can actually keep up with the performance of the DeWalt, and I am impressed! I like the gradual startup and LED load indicator, two features which the DeWalt did not have. Overall very impressed and would recommend this tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bbyers Best thing since sliced bread
I originally purchased this tool in kit with the drill/ radio combo in December 2013 as I had used a buddy's previously and was initially impressed.. This tool is SUPER and has plenty of power to complete nearly all tasks asked. Have used to drive 3" screws in seasoned treated decks and new construction alike. You can go for a very long time on one charge. FYI--The bigger batteries really do last longer. Handle feels comfortable and no issues with function in 2 years. LED lights to shine on work area is very helpful if working inside. Have also used working on cars and compact size is great. So impressed with operation I have begun buying more in this line. Would like to see more individual tools and various kits available at the store. Big determining factor for me was the LSA and the interchangeable batteries. So far have not needed the LSA but piece of mind is well worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garagewoodworker Strong and durable
Bought this in a kit with the radio and drill. The driver is compact strong and very durable. From screws to lag bolts this driver handles them all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by roadking Does not hold up
I have had all Ridgid tools for over 12 years. So I was so happy when they finally came out with a grinder, only to be disappointed, It stopped working the first time I used it.
I took it all the way to service center (Pain finding one that will honer Ridgid) they had it a month. I got it back, It worked for a day, then same thing... just quit working! I only used it for cutting off nails or thin steel angle.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bowdude66 Tool started out good but torque is a let down !
I have 18 different Ridgid tools in electric and battery operated not counting batteries and chargers. The 18v grinder is fine for very light hobby shop work but is a major let down for anything heaver due to low torque. the unit continually kicks out during heavy grinding or light cutting, which I know is not recommended but come on guys. Really !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ashmccullough Tough enough
I'm hard on my drills. Drilling through block ,brick, concrete, metal. I'm the guy that pushes hard to get the job done. the only thing i get from the drill is that it wants more. It's great to have a tool that puts out as much a I give it. I've dropped it, kicked it, and put in battery after battery, working it as hard as i can. It doesn't overheat, it doesn't stop, doesn't drop the bits. It just keeps putting out. It sits great in my hand and is well balanced. It's not too heavy and it's got alot of torque. I enjoy the hammer option, drill option and screw option. All in all, this is a great drill.
