Answer: 
low, as suitable to avoid trashing screws being driven, while high is likely to destroy what it's working on because of "excessive torque" according to the instruction manual

Answer: 
#1 is low speed for driving screws and drilling large holes (i.e. hole saws, large accessories, and spade bits.) #2 is high speed and used for drilling. It'll be obvious when you pull the trigger if you should forget.

does the battery have a 3 year warranty only or the LSA warranty?

This question is from X4 18-Volt 1/2 in. Cordless Hammer Drill/Driver Kit
Asked by

The spec said 3 yearLifetime Service Agreement with tool registration. What does it mean by 3 yearLifetime Service ? Does the LSA cover the batteries, hammer drill and the impact driver (came with this package deal) or the battery has 3 year warranty and other units have LSA. Need some clarification.

If you buy the battery alone it will have 3 years warranty. If you buy the battery with, for example, a kit ("they said an elegible product")AND ALSO ENTER TO RIDGID.COM, inscribe your product and send the original receipt, with the original upc, and a printing where you inscribe the product, to the address that they give you in the site, it will have a LSA warranty.

If you buy the battery alone it will have 3 years warranty. If you buy the battery with, for example, a kit ("they said an elegible product")AND ALSO ENTER TO RIDGID.COM, inscribe your product and send the original receipt, with the original upc, and a printing where you inscribe the product, to the address that they give you in the site, it will have a LSA warranty. Once they verified your documents, they send a notification about the inscription in the LSA plan. And yes, in this instance, include the batteries!!!
The following is a copy and paste from the Ridgid site:
RIDGID® Brand Hand Held Power Tools, Stationary Power Tools, and Pneumatic Tools are automatically covered under a 3-year Limited Warranty. This 3-Year Limited Warranty begins from the date of purchase shown by a valid receipt. If a valid receipt is not available, the 3 year limited warranty period begins from the date of manufacture on originally purchased equipment. For batteries and chargers, if the receipt is not available, and the battery/charger serial code differs from tool console more than 12 weeks, the origin of the battery/charger cannot be verified. In this case, the tool serial code must be used to verify warranty, NOT the battery/charger serial code. Note that all accessory batteries and chargers sold separately must have a valid receipt to verify warranty status since they are not sold with a tool console in a kit.
Lifetime Service Agreement
The original purchaser of an eligible product may elect to register for a free Lifetime Service Agreement. To accept this Lifetime Service Agreement, you must register your product and submit proof of purchase for processing approval as described below. The Lifetime Service Agreement provides the original owner of qualifying RIDGID® Brand tools a lifetime of free replacement batteries, free service and free replacement parts subject to the limitations set forth below.
The Lifetime Service Agreement is available free of charge, on all eligible RIDGID® Brand hand held power tools, stationary power tools and pneumatic tools, subject to the terms and conditions stated below. Customers have 90 days from date of purchase to register tools for the Lifetime Service Agreement. Once all conditions of the registration process are fulfilled, the tool’s service coverage lasts the lifetime of the original purchaser. The Lifetime Service Agreement status on a tool is not transferable to persons other than the original purchaser. Note: The RIDGID Lifetime Service Agreement is only available for eligible RIDGID tools purchased at THE HOME DEPOT. Read Less

Answer: 
I bought mine over a year ago and the LSA warranty was available, but you have to jump through a few hoops to get it. It took a while to gather the stuff and make copies of it before submission, but it's well worth the effort. The process took a few weeks, but they kept me informed via email on its progress.

Answer: 
I haven't gone to 5/8", but did do ½" and it worked well. When drilling into concrete with either this drill or my much larger corded drill, I always start with a smaller bit to drill to the depth I want and then enlarge it with the bigger bit.

I haven't gone to 5/8", but did do ½" and it worked well. When drilling into concrete with either this drill or my much larger corded drill, I always start with a smaller bit to drill to the depth I want and then enlarge it with the bigger bit. It's usually faster, even counting the time to change bits. Be aware that rocks and rebar will really slow you down. In fact, it's likely rebar will destroy the carbide tip on your masonry drill. If you live fairly far from the store, keep a spare on hand. Drilling into concrete blocks is a breeze, by comparison! Read Less

Answer: 
It should. Ensure, however, you select the proper settings in your hammer drill and your bit is sharp enough. Also, keep in mind that concrete mix may contain rocks or pebbles which the bit may have a hard time drilling through; same thing if your drilling spot encounters metal re-bar.

Answer: 
Hi Dan, this is a great hammer drill. This drill will handle the 5/8 drill bit and you should have no problem drilling 2 1/2 inches deep. Make sure you are using a good concrete bit, like a Bosch bit. Also make sure you let the bit do the cutting. Don't use extreme force when drilling.
Hope that answered your question.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality at it's best. I like how versatile this product is. I used the drill feature to make a 8-1/4" dia. hole in a 1/4" thick corrugated aluminum panel to mount a ventilation fan. I used the hammer drill feature to make holes in a concrete slab to install drive-way markers so I can easily find my drive-way when I return home after a heavy snow-fall or dense fog. I really like the feature where you can turn the drill light on before the drill starts to turn. Great Product. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toughest drill you'll ever own!! I've owned a lot of different brand drills over the years as a contractor. But no other drill matches the strength and versatility of this drill. And most important no one backs their product better than Ridgid. You know how many other companies back their batteries with a warranty like Ridgid?, NONE. July 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceeded expectations Drill is awesome compared to my old electric drill. The battery had went bad, and I was thinking about just replacing the battery. Glad I went with this new Rigid drill instead. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great price and Great value ! Drill works fine and is a great value . Would buy again with lifetime warranty on drill , batteries and charger how could you go wrong. June 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ridgid 18V Cordless Hammer Drill/Driver Kit Drill/driver with batteries and charger was a good purchase. Lifetime warranty (if proper paperwork filed in time) seems great (will update once I need to replace batteries). June 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well built,with lots of torque. Very rugged, with lot of torque, battery's last long, with quick recharge times. If you are using it all day over your head it is heavy. But will run all day. June 2, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bring back the old ridgid hammer drill!!!! I use to be a big fan of the ridgid tools. I originally started to use the ridgid line of tools about eight years ago out in the plumbing field and had no troubles. This past year my old hammer drill finally died. The motor burnt out and figured I would just buy the x4 hammer drill and impact driver set.... the circular saw and sawzall still worked good for me. So there was no need to buy the whole 5 piece set. In a four month period of time I burnt up two brand new x4 hammer drills. I decided to take one apart to see what happened to it... the inside design had been changed on the motor and bearings. The rear bearing sits in the plastic housing and melts the plastic when it gets to hot... never had that problem with the old set!!! I just bought the makita set and blows the ridgid set away!!!!! January 1, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by They All Have Bit Wobble Chuck up any bit less the 1/4 inch and it wobbles. 3/16" bit in metal and you get a hole closer to 1/4". I called Ridgid and they say thats normal and the drill isn't designed for such small bits. Went to 3 different Home Depot stores and tested many others right out of the box that did the same thing. Put my bit in 3 other brands at HD and it was perfect. I will now return all my Ridgid cordless tools and switch brands.Shame on Ridgid. January 6, 2015
