Questions & Answers

Does this drill have a light like the others? I do not see one in the picture.

Asked by: JD
Yes, the light comes from the chuck itself. It's awesome and functional. I hate to admit that I believe it is not as bright as the other ridgid brushless hammer drill that shoots light from the bottom. However, it is enough light to illuminate a dark surface.

can I use my lithium batteries I have are do they have to be octane

Asked by: Chuck
Thank you for asking, Chuck. Since the entire RIDGID 18-volt line (batteries, tools, and chargers) are all interchangeable, the lithium batteries that you have will work fine with this tool or any other RIDGID 18-volt tool. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in RIDGID! -Keri

i called homedepot and they said its discontinued and not in any warehouse in usa. why bother putting it back on the web?
Asked by: 3300
ok, i have the drill now and 9 amp starter battery/charger kit and the battery is under their lsa now. to qualify both items are supposed to be in the cart. problem is you can't get the drill in the cart and check out, only the battery is available online. so what you have to do is buy the battery and take the receipt to a home depot that has this drill in stock and show the battery receipt to get the tool for free "there is a total disconnect from each other" as a customer service person said. also, they are called review and no home for inventory. this makes the process of buying much more difficult for the seller and buyer until they make a home for them in store. the battery sold by hd came in a generic box not a ridgid box and was not sealed in any way. not happy about that. when you register for the lsa they ask for the box number and it doesn't come with one to give it to them.

18-Volt OCTANE Cordless Brushless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill/Driver (Tool Only) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two hand this one Amazing power on this one. First thing let me say the octane power boost on some ridgid tools is felt when you use regular batterys, they are strong and great tools. With this thing you can actually hear and feel the power when changing from a regular battery to a octane battery. The difference is amazing and if you aren't ready for the extra power when you fully pull the trigger on this tool it will twist your whole body. Use the supplied extra handle and hold on (the handle can be put on top or left/right sides)I don't have a way of measuring actual torque but I will say if you need torque this probably has more than you need. I have 110v name brand hammer drills and none have the power in this beast... features of this drill are mostly standard ^^keyless chuck, on board screw bit. Belt hanger, for holding drill when on a ladder etc, and a quick deach handle^^ the power inside this is the hugest part of this tool and should be the main thing most people are looking for however the power coupled with the brushless technology for long run time and durability makes this the only logical choice. Definitely glad I got this one.

I just couldn't help myself. I'm actually a high school special ed teacher but also an avid DIYer, woodworker, and the occasional handyman. In the past I've owned other brands like Makita and Porter Cable. Before buying this one I owned the other Ridgid brushless hammer drill which was also way more than enough for my purposes. This drill is a bit bigger than the other one but it does not feel bulky to me. It feels super solid, super beefy, basically, easily the manliest power drill I've ever owned...So far I've used it to drill with hole saws in wood and to drill through concrete. The clutch setting works as expected. I sold my old drill and I feel no buyer's remorse about buying this one. It feels perfect. Buy it.

I haven't drilled into any concrete with it yet as I mainly am drilling into wood but I can say that with a good spade bit it will absolutely tear through anything I throw at it. With a standard drill bit it simply is no contest. I had a 1/4" drill bit in the chuck, placed the drill bit on my mark (on a 2x4), and pull the trigger and it was already through (insert "mind blown" meme/gif here). I remember literally saying "wooooah" out loud.. but then again I find myself talking to myself in the shop anyways so I guess that may not be helpful for you. :-) Again, I will update this review if I find any problems later on as I've only had it for a month or two, but so far so great

This is a GREAT hammer drill/driver with LOTS of power and torque (1,300 in/lbs=108.3 ft/lbs), especially when paired with an OCTANE Bluetooth high capacity battery. I got mine FREE when I purchased as a Special Buy with the 9.0 Ah Battery & Charger Starter Kit.

The octane 9 amp battery and the octane 1300 inch pound drill worked in minus 17 f air temps. Leaving it in the minus 40 f windchill's and it would not operate at all. The chuck led's blinked was all it could do. I use it for ice fishing too. I tested the drill with gen5x 4 amp battery and it cut out quickly in 2 to 3 inches of ice. there is no way it can have 1300 inch pounds with a smaller battery. There are reports of cut outs and start up hesitations on iceshanty dot com. mine works flawlessly with an 8 inch lazer. it cuts so fast it brings water up to my knees on breakthrough. There is a huge difference between this drill and the Ridgid 780 Inch pound hammer drill. I am glad to have both so I know the differences.

Turns a 3 .5" hole saw like it wasn't there....plumber asked my why I didn't use his stuff....watch this I say! Can really feel the octane difference compared to other brushless RIDGID drills. Chuck light is great although mine did flicker a bit, not a big deal though. Drill is a bit big and heavy but man....if you have an electrical and plumbing job coming up do yourself a favor and get one of these bad boys!

The 9ah battery lasts all day, I haven't been able to run it down yet. I still have my last Ridgid drill purchased in 2006 and that drill still works great, it just won't die. Love the Lifetime Service Agreement on the drill, charger, and battery. Ridgid fan for life as I used the LSA on my last drill kit to replace 4 NiCad batteries 3 different times and the charger once, haven't needed it for that old drill yet. The LSA and 1,300 in-lbs of torque sold me on the Octane drill.
