Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan11 Didn't last long. Register your warranty!
Used this drill very little(less than 4 hours) before it stopped working and needed an expensive electrical component replaced; over half the original price of the drill.. Unfortunately I didn't register for the lifetime service agreement so buying a different drill with new warranty seems more cost effective than repairing this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by markese So Glad I Ordered This Drill
This drill has a nice rugged feel and operates smoothly. I really like the fact that it has metal gears, it should hold up well. I use it for drilling 3/4" holes through studs for running wire and it is fast. I've also used it to drill 1/4" holes for tap-cons into concrete and it worked great. I have just one complaint, while it is nice, the bag is barely big enough for the drill to fit into it and actually zip it up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ivan Great drill - does the trick
This drill make quick work of drilling holes into my concrete foundation and cinder block wall. I used with Blue Granite Turbo Carbide Hammer Drill Bits with this drill. Made the job quick and easy. It was a tad bit on the heavier and loud side, but overall great value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DAC62 Exceeded all expectations.
This past weekend, I had the need to drill 4 holes in concrete. Not just any concrete and not just any hole. I have an Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) home with 8" concrete sandwiched between 2.5" Styrofoam. The holes are 1" in diameter, to fit exterior frost free faucets. I used a Bosch Blue Granite 1" x 12" bit, and honestly I don't know how it could have worked any better. If you think about the hole, that's s LOT of concrete to remove. The drill NEVER stalled or hesitated and it performed perfectly. Heavy chuck, long lighted plug cord. The swivel handle allows you to move the handle to the most comfortable location.
I would buy **this** drill in a heart beat.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PlasmaMan Ridgit Hammer Drill
Been trying to use this drill for the past week to drill 5/16" holes in my foundation and it's been absolute nightmare with this drill. I initially thought that there was something wrong with it so I exchanged it. This drill takes forever to drill one 3" deep hole. I use very expensive German made drill bit so it is not the limitation. Do not use this drill if you have more than one hole to drill as it will drive you insane when you spent five minutes on a single hole. This is very strange as the cordless Ridgit drills are very good. The only thing this drill will hammer is your patience. Avoid at all costs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bighoff Good drill but not hammer drill
Drill has a good price comparatively and nice features. The construction is durable and holds up nicely with minimal care. Runs great for drilling thru wood, used dozens of times to drill many 1/2 inch holes for deck construction, saved my cordless drills from an early grave. But, I bought this drill specifically because it was a hammer drill and needed to drill concrete for setting anchors. This drill didn't make it to hru one box of 1/4 inch tap cons and a hand full of 1/2 inch bolts (this was not in one day either it took place over a year).. So if you need a good 1/2 inch drill it's a good choice but if a hammer drill is what you need find something else. I'm sending mine in for repair, I'll report on how that goes in the meantime looking for a new hammer drill.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dleo Easy to use get the job done!
I bought this drill to make holes around a pool to cover it at the end of the season and with this tool was very easy thanks to the light weigh and powerfull. There were like 16 holes the problem was that it was a sunny day and the drill was heated too making it unusable but thanks to LSA, ridgid repaired free of charge and have not had any problems with this drill enymore
