Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Delester16 Excellent product with long battery life!
I was encouraged to buy an impact driver when my neighbor found out I was building a garden shed (12' X 15') in a remote area of my property. (no electricity). I went shopping and found the 18V drill, impact, radio combo. After checking on prices elsewhere, I knew I had found just what I needed. Then I discovered that the batteries have a lifetime warranty which is very important when you have battery powered power tools. I'm just about done with the building and have not broken off one head on the screws I am putting the metal on with. A fantastic tool....Just used it yesterday (impact tool) to change tire on pickup. Handled the 13/16 socket like it was nothing. VERY SATISIFIED!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sandiegohaunted Rigid kit is amazing
Rigid has come through BIG time with this combo kit. I have nothing but great things to say about the entire set.
The people at Rigid really thought about the consumer on this one, even the Lithium ion batteries have their own light meter (see video) to tell you when there low. The drill and impact driver have powerful built in lights, both tools are very light weight - balanced, and powerful (yes powerful). The radio which I thought was going to be kind of gimmicky turned out to be awesome, it runs on the same cordless battery as the tools, and is LOUD it sounds really good (see video) even on FM radio. If you're in the market to buy a combo impact /drill kit this is the one that you can't pass on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WrongwayToolman So Far it's Great
Has plenty of power, and hasn't needed a recharge since the initial charge. I've used it for small jobs about a half dozen times over 3 weeks. Learned not to hold the chuck and turn it on to tighten bits in the chuck. That's how I would tighten the bits in the chuck with my old 9volt. Can't and don't need to do that with this drill motor. I burned my thumb doing it out of habit. So far it appears to be a very good product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DRKN Drills have great flexibility for all job tasks
Purchased combo kit last fall and have used extensively ever since. Impact drill is especially powerful with great torque for driving extensive project I had installing Tap-con screws into concrete substrate. Previous Rigid drill is still in use and provides me with flexibility on the job-site. These hand tools are remarkably lightweight and smaller in size than previous models making them my tool of choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by buckeyedad What a great little radio!!
I did a lot of research before I decided on this Ridgid combo. I can't believe how powerful they really are! The lights have really good placement on the tools as well. There were two main selling points for me on this combo... 1) You get a lifetime warranty on the tool and battery after you register your serial number! 2) You get a very impressive little radio with surprisingly big sound, and with an mp3 aux plug-in for the same price as the two tool combo. You can't go wrong!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RealTime Lifetime--- Wear you down--- Warranty-- in real life
After 4 years the batteries don' hold a charge. Drive 30 minutes to warranty depot.
Check warranty and say that Rigid does not allow them to stock 18v warranty claim batteries?
They will email when Rigid sends warranty claim batteries within a month.
Drive 30 minutes back home.
How much time and gas and waiting will you spend to collect on a warranty claim ????
This time and wait all over again
How far do you live from a warranty store and what are it's hours? Open weekends?
Do you need your tools working in a month ?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TinyTimber Ridgid 18 volt Ion Drill Set
Very powerful drill, Great balance, focused light, comfortable grip, batteries last a long time, great radio with good sound, great for construction but overpowered for my use, will look for Ridgid 12 volt ion drill, adjustable hand grip is very nice

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Judson Great Power, Good Design
This is a great set. Both the drill & the impact driver pack pack plenty of power. The batteries come out of the box with a charge, which is always nice, and they have indicator lights that tell you how much juice is left, which is really handy. The LED light that comes on when you pull the trigger is also a really nice feature. The battery life is excellent & I was amazed at how small these batteries were compared to other 18v batteries I have (see photo).
Lastly - the radio. It's actually a pretty solid addition to this set. I was skeptical at first, but the sound quality is much better than I expected & the volume gets loud enough to make you feel self-conscious about your music selection if your neighbor comes out in their yard. It's AM/FM & has an auxiliary input where you can hook up your ipod or any other mp3 player. It also has a strap on the back to secure the mp3 player.
All in all, great set. Well made, lots of power & some really well thought out features.
