    Q:Does this Imp have a normal mode on it? I bought the Octane imp driver and it would only let you engage "specialty modes" and did not have a normal/regular mode on the tool. I was shocked and it was a disaster for driving screws.

    A:  Hello, Heatseeker - Thank you for your question. This product does have a mode selector. Press the mode selector to cycle between Low (1) speed, Medium (2) speed, High (3) speed, and Self-tapping Mode. I hope this helps!

      Q:I just bought this impact driver. Works great. In the mode 4 (self tapping) the forward rotation sounds like the 2000 rpm like the manual mentioned. But the reverse rotation sounds like speed 3 at 3400 rpm. Is this normal? Thanks for any information.

      Answer This Question

      A:  The manual explicitly states ( p. 7) that the tool runs at full speed in reverse in the self-tapping mode. Perhaps the experts at Ridgid should read the manual before telling clients there is a problem with their tool, and to take it in for service.

        A:  Question - does this impact driver drive screws at a constant speed or does it fluctuate the speed or drive the screw in bursts? The octane imp driver did this and did not include a normal mode. It only had specialty modes which are not practical.

        by|Sep 4, 2023

          A:  Hello, Vj77 - Thank you for your question. The RPM should be the same in reverse. Your tool may need to go into an authorized service center for repairs. I hope this helps!

              Light and fast
              I love this drill. I used to use an older, larger, and heavier. This drill is much faster, and light and easy to get into tight spaces and corners. I build things like chicken coops or do renovation type things and this drill is my new go to. Don’t let its compact size fool you, it’s super powerful and has a super long battery life. This drill would make an excellent edition to anyone’s tool kit.

              Blown away by the performance
              I'm a tool junkie and I've tried them all. The combination of light weight power and feel of the tool is top notch. Rigid makes the best tools at there price point and keep up and in some ways better than the big guys. I always let my co workers try my new tools and also get there impressions also. My team has just about every brand between us and it was the favorite for a big roof job we worked on. The included case is strong enough for an elephant to be able to step on it with no damage to the driver. I was a little worried as the kit only had a 2ah battery but we put well over 100 large screws and it never died. One of the best things about Rigid they have a lifetime warranty on the battery's, that's a big deal. If your not invested in a brand you will be extremely impressed with the quality and different offering Rigid has for the best price for what you get.

              Good powerful impact
              This Rigid 18V impact has been great so far. The unit itself is not too heavy, I like the battery level indicator and the mode selector is easy to use. It also comes with a philips head bit as well. The impact holder is easy to use as well just slide in the bit and it locks into place. Plenty of power in this unit as well. The downside is the case and the light placement. The case for this unit could've been smaller, it has room for a drill and another battery so wasted space there. Having the light on the bottom of the handle where the battery sits is a little different as well.. Other than that it's a good all around impact.

              Great performance, upgraded from last model, battery, charger, and amazing case.
              I will go over some specification's and features then share my experience with this tool kit. This package included the impact driver (R862312), charger, 18v - 2.0 Ah Max Ouput battery, case, belt clip, bit holder, and operator's manuals. This driver has a 1/4 inch locking coupler. A max torque rating of 2,400 in.-lbs. The impacts per minute range from 0-4,300/min no load speed. There are 4 modes with RPMs of, (1) Low: 0-800/min, (2) Medium: 0-2,000/min, (4) High: 0-3,400/min, and (4): Self-Tapping: 0-2,000/min. The trigger is variable speed so the more pressure applied the faster it will spin. Easily switch between modes with the mode selector button. The mode indicator light will illuminate to identify the mode you have selected. There is a built in LED light that illuminates when you squeeze the trigger. When you release the trigger the electric brake kicks in and instantly stops the bit rotation. I already own the last model R862311 impact driver but decided to get this kit because it came with the battery, charger, and case. The impact drivers look very similar. I loved the other model and thought it worked great until I compared the performance against this one. I was driving 4" screws into 2x's and came up with an average of 1.2 seconds with this unit and 3.1 seconds with the old model. They both work great but this model is faster and more compact. Another upgrade from the last model is the self tapping mode. Self tapping mode was designed to reduce screw stripping, screw breakage, and damage to your work surface. In this mode the driver will start fast to drive the fastener but then stop automatically when the screw is seated. This mode worked great for attaching a TV mount to my metal gazebo. Like the last model the 1/4 inch coupler locks bits into place. To release the bit just slide the outter ring. Like all of the recent ridgid tools the textured rubber handle feels great in your hands and provides non slip grip. The direction of rotation selector is like any standard drill / driver. You have forward, lock, and reverse. The charger and battery are nice because you can never have too many. The case that came with this kit is one of my favorite parts. The case is made of a very durable plastic. It has metal clasps that hold the case closed. On the left and right sides of the case there is a label identifying which tool kit this is. This makes picking out the right case much easier. Some of my tools have the same bags and I will open 3 of them before I find the one I wanted. The case has a durable plastic handle with a rubber grip pad. It has an eyelet for pad locks. I have a little fingerprint reader lock I put on mine. It's not the strongest lock but it holds down the handle so someone couldn't just pick it up and walk away casually. If someone tries to steal it they will have to pick it up awkwardly. I noticed the extra space in the case and decided to try putting my hammer drill and handle in there. The hammer drill fit perfectly but if I put the handle in there the case will not shut. I don't use the handle often anyway. This leads me to believe Ridgid is or has come out with a new hammer drill with a smaller handle. If you are looking for an impact driver I recommend this kit. The impact driver is solid, it is durable and gives a great performance. It's always nice having an extra charger, a max output battery, and the case is amazing.

              Great driver with improver features
              I selected this driver because of its compact size and 4-mode operation. This tool has 3 impact/driver settings that allow me to select how aggressive I need: slow and easy for drywall screws to very aggressive for long deck screws. The first time I used it, I did not realize it was set on the aggressive setting and I had trouble keeping the Phillips tip in the screw but had no problem after I reset to the least aggressive setting. it also has a special setting for self-tapping screws that worked well for starting a #8 self-tapping screw in 16g steel. The molded case is nice as well and has a place for my RIDGID hammer drill. The 2Ah battery is a nice fit for this tool but if using a 4Ah battery did not make it feel too heavy or unbalanced. I have not had it long enough to know how it will hold up, but it feels well-made. I'm happy with the 4 other RIDGID 18V tools I have and expect this one to be just as good.

              Fits Hand Nicely
              I am amazed at its power. Small but mighty. What I like most is that the drill fits nicely in my (female) hand making it easy to use. Also, I am able to grasp and push in both side levers of the battery whether I’m removing it from the drill or removing it from the charger. It’s a little heavy but the weight feels like a good quality rugged tool. I was surprised and wowed to learn that there’s a Lifetime Warranty (service agreement) for parts AND service for LIFE if you register it within 90 days of purchase.

              Updated Drill Kit
              The RIDGID 18V Brushless Cordless 4-Mode Impact Drill Kit with 2.0 Ah MAX Output Battery, Charger, and Case is a great addition to our RIDGID from HomeDepot tool collection. RIDGID has improved the torque drive and made the use of the MAX Output battery for extended use. The belt hanger and screw attachments holder are nice touches for use on the go. We would recommend this tool for your projects. We are pleased with it.

              Perfect!
              An impact driver is my 2nd most used tool in my entire collection, so I'm looking forward to getting good use out of this driver. The Ridgid R862312 kit comes with everything you need to get started, the kit includes the 1/4" impact driver, single battery charger and one 2ah battery. The molded case that comes with this kit is great, allowing your tool, battery and charger to fit perfectly, however the kit is designed to hold two tools. Essentially the case will be huge for this single tool combo, as you're only using half of the case. The kit includes a charging station which provides information on the status of your battery directly on the station, and the battery has a charge indicator on it as well. The impact driver features four different modes with different speeds which adjust the overall RPM of the trigger. The trigger is a variable speed trigger which allows you to have a bit of control over your speed. The directional button allows you to go forward, backwards and middle for a trigger lockout. The tool comes with a belt clip on one side and a built-in bit holder on the other. There is a small LED light on the front of the unit which helps to illuminate your general work area. Overall I'm very impressed with this tool. The impact drives in drywall screws with much ease and I can see this being my go to tool for most of my projects.
