8.5-Amp 1/2 in. Heavy Duty Hammer Drill is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 72.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My thing is home improvement in a small town full of semi-derelict houses fifty years old or more... My thing is home improvement in a small town full of semi-derelict houses fifty years old or more. So I am switching tasks and trades continually, and must keep all sorts of equipment on hand to do just about any work associated with fixing up an old house. I don't make a whole lot of money at it, but I also learned long ago that "cheap tools are expensive." The need I was seeking to meet here was that I kept needing a hammer drill and was straining goodwill to keep borrowing one from a colleague. But it so happened I also had recently given up on my old Milwaukee Hole-shooter, a model I have had way more trouble with two versions of than I ever expected from a brand I otherwise admire. Plus, I didn't want a cordless to be my only hammer drill, so that I would never be short of power when I needed it; and on top of all that, I need a cord drill to handle hole-drilling plus mud and paint mixing, so I didn't want to spend extra on an SDS-type unit and then not be able to use it as an ordinary drill. After much research I came up with this Ridgid, and the report is an enthusiastic "so far so good." I have drilled several holes in concrete that the motor doesn't even seem to notice, mixed drywall mud and paint and even pre-mix concrete with it on maybe a quarter of its available power, a friend used it yesterday with a 4" hole saw in 1/2" fiberglass and was impressed, etc. I'll be using it to drill holes for electrical and plumbing routes, to mix whole buckets of drywall compound or anything else wet I need to whip up, and I am more than optimistic based on what I've seen so far. The brand is solid and reputable, the design is user-friendly, the rotating torque handle easy to adjust, the price is justified by the versatility, and even the configuration of the chuck key with longer handles than usual so that for once I don't bust knuckles loosening a tight bit, is an unexpected but appreciated bonus. I'd say for an all-round drill offering both diverse usage and more than enough power, that DeWalt and Milwaukee are both WAY over-rated, and that I think my new orange one might be with me a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drill with a life time warranty This is an excellent drill for all purpose. I have used it to drill in steel, concrete and wood and it worked beautifully. I have always hated drilling in concrete but with this drill, it was a breeze. I am buying this for my dad for father's day this year
