Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by my first time i dont know whats customer service I buy this drill in the home depot and in the box said life time warranty February 18, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by 3/8 In. Vsr Drill A good drill with a fatal flaw: the chuck is VERY difficult to tighten. It requires two hands, and the inside tightening collar is far too narrow for a good grip. Therefore one has to use a pliers to grip the inner tightening collar in order to secure drill bits. The inability of this chuck to secure bits is especially noticeable on forstener bits and larger drill sizes. I have returned this drill for full refund, and will look for a suitable replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ridgid for Life For the money this is the best corded drill you can buy. The two features that I really love the belt clip and the little picture of the drill on the cord. Very helpful when you have a dozen things plug to see which is which before yanking. November 3, 2006
Rated 3 out of 5 by not as good as Dewalt 2 main problems with this drill: 1) too heavy for it's size 2) handle is uncomfortable - too thin ended up buying 6.0A Dewalt March 2, 2007
Rated 2 out of 5 by Ridgid skimped latest model.They get rid of bubble level, lighting plug, but worst the chuck cannot hold bits less than 1.3mm I bought this drill 4-5 years ago and was the best purchase. Now i needed another one and i went for same model but...Ridgid skimped latest model. They get rid of bubble level, lighting plug, which is not a deal breaker, but worst the chuck cannot hold any bit under 1.3 mm anymore. It will not tight anything below 1.3 mm and i don’t understand why they did this. The old chuck was holding thin hair bit, not the new one, so for me this is useless drill, returned and buy different. I just want to let Ridgid know how they made a great product useless for me may be others. The good part they increased rpm from 2500 to 2700rot/min. March 12, 2014
