Questions & Answers

will this hammer drill, Drill regular and hammer style? does it have a switch to change to each style of drilling?

Strong enough to mix mortar?

Asked by: SchuylerHagglund
No, do not use for mixing mortar. Mortar should be mixed at approximately 300 rpm. This drill is designed to operate at its maximum speed of 3000 rpm. At a lower variable speed, less torque is produced and extra heat becomes a factor. Unless you are mixing a very small batch of mortar, you are risking over heating this drill and failure (Read the response from Ridgid).

Is this drill capable of removing ceramic tile that is 30 years old with a chisel bit?

Could you suggest the right tool for this job?

8.5-Amp 1/2 in. Heavy Duty Hammer Drill is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall the Rigid 8.5 amp drill is a powerful high torque drill but as far as the hammer drill fu... Overall the Rigid 8.5 amp drill is a powerful high torque drill but as far as the hammer drill function it is only good for smaller bits. Although I bought this Rigid drill years ago, after recent test comparisons with Dewalt I thought I'd publish my recent findings and how this drill compared to the Dewalt brand. Bare in mind I'm only comparing the drilling part and not the hammer drill part. This weekend I bought the Dewalt DWD210g drill specifically for an upcoming project where I was going be working in a tight 2 1/2 foot attic space for a week. I normally use my home grade Rigid 8.5 amp 2 speed hammer drill from Home Depot to drill through top plates and studs but for this job I needed a drill that was shorter in length and lighter in weight since I was going to be working in a confined space. After many hours of research I decided buy the "contractors grade" Dewalt drill and bought the DW511 8.5 amp drill. I decided to test it out first by drilling into a 4x4 using a 1" auger and it got stuck. Couldn't back the drill out or go forward. NOT IMPRESSED with Dewalt so far. So I grabbed my Rigid 8.5 amp drill and backed out the stuck bit without any problems. So then I went back to the store and bought the Dewalt 10 amp drill and when I got home did the same test. This one also got stuck! However unlike the DW511 I was barely able to reverse the bit out of the wood with the DWD210g. In conclusion, my home grade 8.5 amp Rigid out performed the Dewalt DW511 8.5 amp drill AND the Dewalt DWD210G 10 amp drill. I'm guessing the Rigid's 1000 rpm speed was enough of a torque increase to outperform the Dewalt 10amp 1250 rpm drill. In the end I decided to keep the DWD210g for the smaller size foot print and lighter weight BUT I will have my Rigid 8.5 amp drill on standby to bail the Dewalt drill out if need be. As far as the using this Rigid drill as a hammer drill, I eventually went to a larger Makita hammer drill for bits that are 3/8" and larger. It cut through cement like butter while this Rigid hammer drill was not up to the task.
