Is anyone having issues with bit wobbling? I have already returned one and may a second due to this issue.

Asked by Paul February 24, 2020
2
Answers

Yep, I bought 2 octane hammer drills in 2019 as part of their promotional kits. Both drills' chucks have a wobble, albeit one is significantly worse than the other. Also, both chucks will open themselves (and thereby fling out whatever was chucked "in") when the trigger is released, in speed 2 setting & reverse gear. I haven't made the time to contact Ridgid customer service yet...but if you do, please post the outcome.

The light is on the Chuck itself. In my opinion it's not as bright as the version before it but it gets the job done.

There are absolutely issues with the Ridgid Octane Drill. They are DEFECTIVE. Do NOT buy it solo, or as a part of any combo kit. Multiple purchases made, every one of them has the Octane Drill defective. Had some shipped to me from their warehouse, and purchased in store. All of them had to returned. This has been going on prior to May 2019 and is still valid at the time of this review. Went to multiple locations, and every one of them in those stores were defective. Emailed Ridgid multiple times at different email address, zero response. Inexcusable to not even reply. I am a real customer who is terribly disappointed. Suggestion is don't buy any Ridgid tool if this is how they conduct business. Epic Fail. Ridgid how about replying to me.

Asked by PrudentOne June 18, 2019

Answers

Hi PrudentOne, Run time is a difficult metric because it is all dependent on what applications you are using the drill for. If you are drilling small 1/16" holes into soft woods then the 3 Ah will give you more than enough runtime. However, if you are drilling lots of 1/2" holes into concrete then the 3 Ah will not give you a whole lot of runtime so you'd want to opt for a higher capacity pack. So to summarize, if you are using this hammer drill for demanding applications, go for a higher capacity battery pack but if you are doing lighter duty work then the 3 Ah will be just fine.

Lots of Power! Drills through concrete like a beast and Fast! I had to put a toilet flange (repaired broken one) drilled 6 holes 1.5" deep in 45 seconds in harden concrete for "Red Head's" . Using the 3ah -blue octane battery still had full lit bars. It's slightly bigger than my 5x which had 3+ working years which never let me down nor is it leaving my tool box :) - Always be prepared! Poor Planing = Poor results & (-$ income) :)

Dang.. seriously so much power in this Octane Hammer Drill.. 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 few months, but so far so great!!

I have used a lot of drills in the past and some have been better than others. My current "go-to" drill has been the Ridgid Compact Hammer Drill and I love the power and versatility of it. I mainly drill holes using Forstner bits or pocket-holes. I have mixed mortar and grout with it and it has been good. When I got the new Octane drill, I was anxious to mix up some grout and see how strong it was compared to its little brother. I was really impressed with the power that the drill had and it never seemed to "struggle" while mixing. The other feature that I absolutely love, is the chuck light. This is 10x better than the old battery area location. This is my new go-to!

Best, most powerful drill I've owned in my life. 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.

This drill is most likely 90% for the average person like myself... 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 have the smaller compact hammer drill and I really liked that...until I got the Octane hammer drill! Oh boy, this thing is super powerful and my favorite feature is the LED around the chuck. The older drills had the lights down by the battery which worked in some instances. If you do any work in construction where you need to get up into a ceiling or down behind walls in the dark, the light is great. The power of this thing is amazing! I drill a lot of 2-4" holes with hole saws and this thing burrows through plywood and construction lumber like nothing is there.

Ok How can I give this thing 6 stars.. Ridgid knocked it out of the park with the power of this thing. I own all the Ridgid GEN4 and GEN5X drills and this by far has so much more power. No delay.. Works great with the new Octane 6 AH and 9 AH batteries.. Drills thru stuff and no slowing down.. It just keeps boring thru.. Reguardless of how hard of material it is..
