Needs a built-in HEPA filter like DeWalt & Hilti
Needs a built-in HEPA filter like the DeWalt, Hiltix and probably several other brands have. In fact, I am pretty sure the HEPA filter is now an OSHA reauirement to filter out silica dust and prevent Silicosis whichbis a terrible disease.
    Very powerful Rotary Hammer
    We have a back patio that the skirt tiles have fallen off and need to remove the old masonry, concrete and thinset. This 18V RIDGID SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer made short work of all the demo and cleaning of the stucco with the residual left after removing the rest of the tiles (See photos of before and after). We also use this to make holes for tapcon plus concrete anchors, no surprise the tool in impact drill mode, cuts through the concrete like cheese. Like our other RIDGED tools, the interchangeable 18V batteries provide plenty of power for our needs. The brushless motor also helps.

    18V Brushless Cordless Rotary Hammer Drill
    This is a 18 V Cordless 1 inch Rotary Hammer by Rigid. It is solid and high quality. I live in an old stone house and I use it to drill holes for conduit to install outside outlets. I also use it to remove cracked mortar and to repoint joints in the stone. In the past I used a hammer drill with a cord that burn out. This is much more convenient and durable.

    Compact and easy to use
    RIDGID R86712B Brushless 18-Volt 1 inch SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer. This rotary hammer is compact and easy to use. I love the quick adjust depth gauge. Just squeeze the quick release and adjust the depth gauge. Release the quick release and the depth gauge locks into place. This rotary hammer is designed to have up to 50% less vibration with the active internal dual spring system. This rotary hammer has three modes of operation, rotary hammer, drilling, and chisel mode all accessed by the self locking selector switch. This rotary hammer delivers 1.5 ft.-lbs. of impact energy making quick work out of even the toughest jobs. So far, I have used my rotary hammer to demolish a cast cement staircase. This rotary hammer did a great job. I really like the comfortable feel of the pistol grip handle. The side handle with depth gauge can be used for either right or left hand operation making it perfect for use in confined spaces. This rotary hammer come with a 3-year limited warranty to be free of workmanship defects and a lifetime service agreement warranty with free parts and service upon registration. This is a great rotary hammer. Just to note, this rotary hammer is a tool only and will require a Ridgid Max Output maximum power battery for maximum performance. This rotary hammer is a must have for the job professional or homeowner who wants a reliable and easy to use compact tool to get the job done. I highly recommend the Ridgid R86712B 18-Volt brushless 1-in. SDS-Plus rotary hammer.

    Great RIDGID tool.
    This RIDGID tool is very different from other tools that I have. It is a three in one tool. It has a regular drill. A hammer drill and a chisel drill. It does not weigh a lot so it is easy to operate. The extra handle is adjustable from bottom to side. It does have an internal clutch for power. It also has an adjustable depth rod which will come in handy for certain applications. It also has a very bright LED light on the bottom so you can see what you are doing. It takes an 18 volt RIDGID battery. It says it has DVR which means dual vibration reduction. A very handy tool.

    Lots of nice features
    The RIDGID 18V Brushless Cordless 1 in. SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer is packed with features you'd want in a tool, The vibration control in the handle makes it very comfortable to use for longer periods. The four position switch feels well made with positive stops for each position. Unfortunately I only had a 2ah battery when I was testing the tool so it lacked its full power potential. In short if you are into the Ridgid platform this is a good buy

    Bye bye cement
    I was in need of a rotary hammer to replace a fence post. This SDS plus hammer did what I needed. It made quick work of the cement surrounding a wooden fence post. I had to get some batteries and SDS-Plus bits to use this fully. It does not come with anything besides the tool itself. The tool is light and easy to use. It includes some disconnect between the drill and the handle so you are not aggressively shaken when using the tool.

    A Great Rotary Hammer
    RIDGID…. 18V OCTANE Brushless Cordless 1 in. SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer, this 18V Cordless Rotary Hammer features a high performance brushless motor and advanced electronics, all RIDGID 18V batteries will fit this tool, this tool has many high performance electronic features like the brushless motor technology, I really like the Extreme Vibration Reduction which minimizes vibration, the keyless chuck, and it has a mechanical clutch to help minimize torque, and of course the variable speed control, the auxiliary handle with adjustable depth rod make this hammer easier to control and adjust bit depth, all though it is called a rotary hammer I use it as a Drill just by using the 3 mode selector to manually select between Hammer, Drilling and Chisel Modes. This is a great tool and with a Lifetime Service Agreement.

    Oh what a great battery powered rotary hammer dril
    I finally have a large drill that has a chisel function. I have been confusing impact, hammer, SDS and chisel drills for some time. The key was the three settings (minimum) on the drill. This RIGID drill has normal drilling (rotating), hammer drilling (still rotating with a punch) and chisel (vibrate in and out, not rotating). It also has a setting to allow you to orient the chisel bit. See the VIDEO for a tutorial. I was able to easily chisel out some mortar on three parts of my house's flagstone bricks. When the mortar cracks, it needs more space to actually re-mortar. the RIGID cut through like butter. It also cut through the flag stone when drilling in hammer drill mode. The drill has a nice depth gauge for shorts (no chisel) drill bits. In both the chisel and hammer drill modes, I didn't get any drift. The front handle adds stability and can be oriented in any direction around the drill shaft. I move the handle up a bit so the LED light on the front bottom can illuminate my drill area under the back porch. The bit chuck holds SDS bits only although I read an adapter is available to hold regular bits. There is a mini shock absorber on the top back to relieve some strain on the arms when drilling. I measured the weight to be about six pounds with the 4Ah battery. The drill can do forward and reverse by pressing the rear side buttons. Variable speed is controlled by how much you press the trigger. There are no 1 and 2-speed modes. I am very satisfied with the performance. Excited actually. The batteries purchased separately have a lifetime warranty. I picked up two and a charger for $99 at HD. They are strong enough for my home DIY uses. I can finally patch the cracks the lady has been bugging me to do for years. I didn't want to hand chisel. Overall, fantastic drill by RIGID. Good product.

    I never question Ridgid products and here is another prime example. This hammer drill is full of power and definitely competes with the Makita electric I rented from HD. I really wanted one to drill through some extremely thick brick and concrete and that's exactly what I got. The chisel attachment wad a game changer for removing old tile in my bathroom. Although the bits are expensive the SD+ truly rise above the rest of masonry bits. With the lifetime guarantee its a no brainer. People complain about the Ridgid warranty but I have never had a problem and have had 2 tools replaced. One was 10 years old, take it to home depot , it either gets repaired or replaced. Registration is a breeze but make sure you do it ! It's usually approved within a few weeks. Love the new tool in my arsenal.
