Customer Questions & Answers

What's the difference between an impact driver and a pulse driver?

Asked by: Ryan
This impulse driver uses hydraulic oil to drive the impact mechanism. The regular impact uses a traditional mechanical driver. My only concern would be longevity. You have to change the oil in your car, tools, jacks so you will need to at some point do the same with this but there is no way to do so. It is less torquey and quieter so weigh your needs.

Can I extract an SUV's lug nuts with this drill?

I saw my mechanic use a cordless drill/impact drill to pull lug nuts from the serviced vehicles. Can this do it, if not what can?
Asked by: DanG
No it is not designed for that. To take lug nuts off vehicles you would want the Ridgid 1/2" drive Impact Gun, or if you have access to a large enough air compressor I would suggest an air powered 1/2" impact gun, I recently got the Husky 800ft-lbs of torque composite housing air impact gun for only $110 and I run it with my 3.7hp 60 gallon air compress and it's a beast it'll take off lug nuts faster than you can blink an eye!

STEALTH FORCE Brushless 18-Volt Hyper Lithium-Ion 1/4 in. Cordless Pulse Driver Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 78.

I've been a lifelong Ridgid fan buying everything from shopvacs to mitersaws. I bought this impact in April 2016 and use it every day. The biggest let down of this tool and that I feel they should advertise is that it doesn't work in the cold. It spins fine but as soon as it goes to impact it just stops turning. Had I known this would happen I would have bought a different tool. The strength of this tool also lacks compared to other impacts not being able to backoff nuts on bolts that other impacts tightened. This tool should be labeled as interior work even then it feels twice as heavy as most impacts. The sound difference is great but not enough of a selling point for me to recommend to anyone.

The "Pulse" action the reduces the impact volume is achieved by feeding part of the force back into the tool. That creates what you might refer to as kickback. Under some conditions it can be hard on your hand and wrist and under those conditions, my arm-wrist-hand fatigued fairly quickly. Personally, I'd opt for the noise over the pulse buffering.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware the lifetime warranty scam! The product has been great in my limited use over that last 2 weeks. I rated this product low due to the apparent lifetime warranty scam. I registered the product on line at the Ridgid site. It was very easy and seemed legit. Two weeks later I receive an email telling me they couldn't honor the warranty unless I mailed additional information to them. I thought it strange but they included a toll free number to call so I thought I should be able to fix this over the phone. I spoke to the representative who told me a lot of the registrations fail and they need the same information mailed to them. I asked if I could email or fax the info and they said only physically sending the paper copies would satisfy them. They would then let me know in about 8 weeks if they would honor the warranty. Otherwise, it would revert to a three year warranty. I decided to return the product to Home Depot rather than deal with it.

The hydraulic impacting mechanism has more power than comparable higher-end brushless drivers. The feel and build quality are more like that of a more industrial grade pneumatic impact guns. The acoustic benefits are minimal as far as actual SPL reduction, but working with it in a closet, the sound was far less grating than a comparable non-hydraulic guns. This thing punches well above its price point and with the lifetime warranty it is a no-brainer right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a great tool If you are considering buying this tool, do it. Cut my work in half and got the job done with its power. Don' forget to register your tool the batteries and the charger. Now they require you to register, tool both batteries,and charger, not like in the past. I bought their heavy duty drill several years ago, and was only required to register the Ridgit product not the batteries,or charger. I guess this is a company change on the policy for their batteries. Ridgit stands behind their batteries and product. Better then some other well know tool product brands running on battery power. I own a number of other tools, an find they don't compare to the staying power of this product's batteries. Well built tool and the batteries get high marks for excellency in staying power. When a company stands behind its batteries, and it's tool you know you are investing in the future knowing the tool will last for many years.

It has a different feel to it when driving because of the different style of impact. Once I got used to it though I have found that I can still get the finesse I need on mode 1 and this things can drive like crazy on mode 3. The noise reduction is really nice, especially when working inside. This is now my go to driver.

I have used it around the house but as well on commercial/industrial concrete job sites. This drill is very durable in the field.

I find it takes a bit of learning curve to adjust for the soft or gradual pulse verses the mechanical ratchet of the older drivers. This is one of the newer brushless tools and I am looking forward to many years of service from this tool. The lifetime warranty for both the battery, charger and tool is a fantastic deal.
