          This beats previous model R85115 by far.
          happy the max output terminals are on the drill. I ordered it because it is smaller lengthwise than the previous drill and also has much better specs at $30 more. I own the previous drill and can attest that it does not have the max output terminals. I own ridgid max output batteries and I find the 2ah max output batteries useless because not many of their smaller tools offer the terminals. I even asked about the terminals in the questions section and got a negative response, I do not know why.

              Great combination drill!
              The Ridgid R861152B 18V brushless 1/2 in. high torque hammer drill/driver is a great tool to add to your tool bag if there’s a chance that you’re going to need to drill into brick or concrete, or just need a variable speed drill. It has a 2 – speed gearbox, a max RPM rating of 2,000, and can deliver 1,250 in./lbs of torque. The brushless motor will deliver a longer motor life, which adds to the value of the tool. In hammer mode, it provides between 0 – 32,000 blows per minute. There’s also an LED light built into the base of the drill for low-light situations. The drill is smaller than I expected – 8” high x 7.25” in length and 2.5” wide. Without the battery, it weighs 3.4 lbs. It has a ½” all-metal chuck and comes with an auxiliary handle, belt hook, bit holder, 2 screws for attaching them, and a driving bit. It feels good to use and has more than adequate power for the tasks that I typically use. It’s a replacement for my corded hammer drill and allows me to leave my smaller drill back in the workshop. The grips on the tool and the extension handle are very comfortable to hold. There are a few things that could be improved: • The gyrations required to attach/remove the auxiliary handle - it must be taken completely apart, and there’s a chance of losing parts. I would have preferred a handle that simply screws into either side of the drill. • The size of the handle is out of proportion with the size of the drill. It’s about 12” long. It could lose about 4”. • The bit holder trim on the bottom of the handle isn’t the right shape to allow the bit holder to fit correctly. It's certainly not a major flaw but something that Ridgid should correct. Like all Ridgid power tools, the Lifetime Warranty will ensure that you don’t have to continually reinvest for the same tool. I have no problem giving this tool a 4-star rating.

              Boatloads of Power!
              I have to replace the non-pressure-treated walls to my utility trailer with pressure-treated wood that I've had for a while and painted them. The old brushed drill I used was just a regular drill and just wasn't up to the task. Since I'm already in the Ridgid line, I decided to give this Ridgid brushless 1/2" hammer drill driver a go. Man am I glad I did – this drill blows the other drill out of the water! I needed to drill holes into the metal square tubing to accept the new hardware. I used cutting oil, with split point metal cutting drill bits, and this 1/2" variable speed hammer drill cut through like butter. Of the many holes I drilled, it only locked up once, my fault, but thanks to the anti-kickback feature, it didn't affect me and the drill simply shut off and the LED blinked a few times – thus saving my wrists. The included handle definitely helps to give you more leverage when drilling into dense materials and the clamp that attaches to the drill is SOLID metal, not plastic. The chuck is metal as well – giving this drill a robust feel in your hands. I also installed a motorcycle lock in concrete, using the "hammer mode" on this drill. Again, made the job super easy! I did this job late in the evening and I can attest to how bright and helpful the integrated LED light is. 2 speeds are available: low speed for high torque applications and high speed for hammer drilling or fast drilling. Even the 2-sided bit was included (slotted and phillips). This is now my go-to drill for all my drilling applications!

              I've got a problem...
              I've got a problem, I'm a tool junkie. I've got more tools than I could use in two lifetimes. I didn't NEED another 1/2 in. hammer drill but when this RIDGID 18V Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. High Torque Hammer Drill/Driver was offered to me as part of a Home Depot promotion... Well, I couldn't say no, but here's the problem. This is shipped as a "tool only", no battery, no charger. I didn't have any Ridgid battery tools so the search was on for a battery and charger. HD had an amazing deal on a complete 2 piece Ridgid drill/impact driver kit so problem solved. Hmm... Three tools only two batteries, seems unfair. OCD strikes again. This hammer drill comes with all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a name brand mid power range hammer drill. Read the ad for a complete list of features. Also, I think Ridgid is the only company that offers a Lifetime Service Agreement but note: "The RIDGID Lifetime Service Agreement is only available for eligible RIDGID tools purchased at THE HOME DEPOT." That agreement includes batteries also. For the time being I'll use this with the 2Ah batteries that came with the drill/impact driver kit I bought but, I'm on the lookout for a deal on some 6Ah batteries. This heavy-duty puppy deserves "more power." If for some strange reason you don't like it, Home Depot has a 90 day return policy.

              Compact hammer drill that provides 425 in./lbs. of torque to drill holes in any masonry
              This hammer drill is for drilling holes in masonry. A hammer drill exerts greater force directly into the bit as it hits the material being drilled, while an impact driver increases the force being delivered perpendicular to the bit. This hammer drill has heavier-duty components inside and more torque than a regular cordless drill. A standard drill and drill bit will barely scratch the surface of a porcelain tile, concrete, brick, or stone. This Subcompact model is very versatile, as it is 30% lighter than the regular hammer drill but delivers 425 in./lbs. of torque. It has an LED light to illuminate your work area and is compatible with all RIDGID 18V batteries.

              Combine this drill with a RIDGID brushless impact driver and your all set!
              The 1/2 in. hammer drill body is solid and fits comfortably in your hand. The handle/grip is covered with a gray rubberized material that helps secure your grip on the tool. This is NOT a Sub-Compact tool, it does have a little weight to it, but I believe that comes from how well the tool is constructed. The motor housing is wider than RIDGID’s non-hammer brushless Drill/Driver model# R86114. (See Image Below) The brushless hammer drill/driver, model# R861152, has a 1/2 in. metal ratcheting chuck, 2 speed gear box, and 24-position clutch ring for torque adjustments. The smooth action trigger makes controlling your startup speed very easy. The tool has a LED light on the base of the drill that shines a light on your work surface. Using MAX Output batteries, I had no problems drilling, driving screws, or using large spade bits. There is plenty of power in this brushless, high-performance tool from RIDGID. The integrated hammer mode allows you to drill into concrete, masonry or stone. The items Included with this drill are an Auxiliary Handle, 1 Belt Hook, and 1 Bit Holder. The hammer drill is compatible with all RIDGID’s 18V batteries. This is a well made, quality tool and it comes with a Lifetime Service Agreement, simply register within 90 days of purchase for free parts, free service, for life.

              Powerful enough to drill through very hard, dense surfaces
              The RIDGID 18V Brushless 1/2” hammer drill is super powerful, it works great for drilling into concrete, brick, etc. The handle is easy to install and provides a sturdy grip when drilling into hard surfaces. It installs on either side so if you’re left or right handed you can put it on the side that’s the most comfortable. I used it to drill a hole in a CMU block and it tackled it no problem! It has a couple different power settings which you can change based on the type of application you’re doing. The light on the front of the drill is very nice when working in under-lit areas. It comes with a belt clip and a handy little attachment on the side to hold a drill bit. I always carry bits in my pocket and it’s kind of annoying so having a place on the side to store one is great. With old buildings you never know what type of fastener you’re going to run into so it’s nice to have options readily available. Would recommend.

              Rigid 18V Brushless Cordless High Torque 1/2 in. Hammer Drill
              Not having any previous experience with Rigid Tools, I was impressed with the quality and workmanship of this hammer drill. It has a good feel to it and offers plenty of power for my DIY homeowner needs. Not sure how it would work in a construction scenario, but I am having fun testing it in different applications around the house and yard. I like that it has a brushless motor as it is more energy efficient, and the battery charge should last quite a bit longer. The handle can be attached on either side, the belt clip is a nice feature as is the LED light (although I wish it were at the top rather than on the base.) Overall, I am very pleased with this unit and would definitely recommend it.

              Great hammer drill battery operated
              I love this drill. It is built real heavy duty but does not weigh too much. The motor is powerful, the hammer action is selectable on or off. When used as a screw gun, you can select clutch settings so to not drive the screw too far into some wood or similar. It accepts a variety of Ridgid battery packs from a 2ah to 4ah. When used, even the smaller battery pack lasts quite a long time, and the larger lasts essentially the whole day. (of course that depends on the work you are doing). Anyway - I will repeat myself - I love these tools. I highly recommend this. I am totally impressed with its design and quality!
