Customer Questions & Answers

Just bought this kit and anxious to use it would it be wise to buy some additional batteries and what size would you recommend?

Asked by: Mike
The battery it came with will last for hours of repeated use, the charger it seems to me charges nearly dead batteries within about 20-25 minutes so if you do exhaust the capacity of the battery you can just take a small break and be back in action in no time. The 4.0 Ah batteries that are offered from Ridgid (besides being an eyesore) are really heavy and run around $99 each, unless you are dry-walling all day everyday I don't think you need that much energy, the kits to look out for are the ones with the charger; chargers are priceless because you could have 100 batteries and only one charger which does no good. If you have 2 chargers one is in the garage at home and one travels with you, couple of 2.0 Ah batteries and you are always ready.

Is this impact powerfull enough for the lug nuts on my pickup

I rotate, and have a second set of wheels and tires for winter time. Wondering if this impact driver will do the job of my failing Chicago pneumatic air impact.
Asked by: Moose
Yes, you would likely want buy a 1/2 inch adapter and then the 1/2 socket that fits your lugs; the theory is the more meat you have on the driver adapter the less likely you will see breakage. The air impact is designed for regular use of this function but your impact driver can do it once in a while, Ridgid also offers an impact wrench that is battery driven (1/2 inch) which may be better suited if you use it often to change tires.

Is this a brushless motor like the X5 hammer drill?

Asked by: Brian
Brush-less technology is brilliant and will be the wave of the future but this item is not, it will serve its purpose until all motor tools become brush-less though. Do you want to spend 3 times as much for tools that accomplish the same task?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality This impact is perfect for someone that doesn't use one every day but when they do use it they need it to work and work well. I believe this unit is it. I've always been impressed with rigid tools and would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifetime service Agreements I guess it's easier to register for the lifetime service Agreement if you purchase from Home Depot online. I received my order for the Impact wrench on January 26, 2017. I registeredit on the 27th and it has already been approved by the 28th. My in store purchase of my impact driver has not been as quick. It's been a week now and no word on my registration. Very powerful tool this Impact driver is. Used it and before I knew it the screw was lost in the wood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great product, terrible registration system Product is great but registration is very difficult, I am somewhat convinced they do this knowing most people won't jump through all the hoops to register and they won't have to honor the warranty. Never bought a product online and was forced to register using paper mail.
