Waay better than expected!
Im a tool snob and a professional user on industrial jobs. I needed this in a pinch. Even on a small 2.0 battery, this thing has surprising power and run time. I will definitely buy more Ridgid 18v. BTW the charger flashing is normal. Read the instructions. Its different from some other charger light indicators. Hope this helps!

This drill kit is great. I like how compact and light weight the drill feels. Its easy to use and holds a charge for many uses. I have used it for small projects around my house and will use it for hanging hurricane shutters.

      My husband and I are always coming up with new home improvement projects and a high quality durable drill is important to have. The 18 volt lithium ion brushless drill is durable, powerful and perfect for any project whether for do-it-yourself or professional level jobs. The light that illuminates during use is helpful to visualize the desired location and even though it’s super powerful , it’s surprisingly quiet which I like.

      This new design is a nice improvement to the compact line up. This works flawlessly with any of Ridgids 18V batteries, I have some older Li-ions and tried them and they worked no problem as well as the newest Octane versions. Without a battery the drill has a nice overall weight and feel. easy to hold and comfortable. the weight really comes from the battery. so depending on what size you use, your mileage will vary. With the largest 9 ah battery the drill does become heavy, which is not typically an issue for DIY work. the weight comes into play if you are doing a lot of work and are holding the drill for long periods. I added a comparison photo to the review so you can see the size difference compared to a compact version and the sub-compact. I also compared it size wise to the newer compact Dewalt 20v drills and it is comparable in size. I drilled 20 2 inch screws into pine studs using each drill and the same battery. Performance was identical on both which was impressive. both drills got slightly warm toward the end. The difference it did notice is that this brushless drill is a bit quieter and also there is a momentary delay when you press the trigger, similar to that split second delay when you turn on an LED light. something you will soon forget but I did notice it. I have used this on several small projects around the over the past 3 weeks, not one negative to mention. I did not install the belt hook, I always add them but never end up using them. This has an LED light in the base where the battery connects which lights the work area well. and is activated by a small switch on the trigger which allows you to light the area without having to engage the drill. I didn't bother providing run times as it will be completely dependent on the battery you chose

      A powerful drill in a delightfully compact package. I love that this drill is small and light enough to easily use one-handed (I have small hands and have struggled with the balance of the larger Ridgid drills). Plus it fits easily into tight spaces! And all without sacrificing power or durability. Really love having this on hand for any and all kinds of projects.

      This subcompact drill is very easy to maneuver in tight spaces, and light enough to hold in awkward positions. It has an LED light to see in dark or shady spots, and a comfortable non-slip grip. I'm really liking how easy this is to use, and still has 400 lbs. of torque. Since this hand tool is compatible with my other RIGID tools, I can use the same batteries and chargers. This is a great hand tool, and has a super warranty.

      Sometimes it is necessary to have two of something around the house. In my case, we are a husband/wife team and jobs go a lot faster if we each have tools. This drill/driver runs on batteries we already own because most of the tools in our shop are Ridgid. This particular model is smaller in stature that our other one, but it has plenty of power for everything we will need it for. The torque is easy to change on the front dial. Everything about it is solid and made for work and it is a bonus that it fits in smaller hands.

      I'm angry that it doesn't come with a battery. That was really disappointing. Now I need to go to Home Depot and get a battery, which I'm going to do cause I like how light weight it is and the design. Hopefully the battery want weight it down. Seems girl friendly and I really couldn't wait to use it, but miner set back should have read the box better, my fault.

      For its size and weight (not heavy at all), this is one powerful drill! The 18V subcompact drill has a 24 position clutch ring allowing you to adjust your torque depending on your project. It also comes with 2 speed settings. Another really nice feature is that the drill has a built-in LED light to help illuminate the workspace. I must mention that this drill does not come with a battery/charger - you must purchase them separately. The drill is compatible with all Ridgid 18 V batteries. I have been using this drill to assist me with finishing my basement and have been very happy with its performance thus far. Would highly recommend!
