Answer This Question

A:  Hello, Thedoc - Thank you for your question. To install bits: Remove the battery pack from the tool. Lock the switch trigger by placing the direction of rotation selector in center position. Slide the chuck forward and hold in position. Insert bit straight into chuck. Slide the chuck back slowly and release. I hope this helps!

          Brushless fun
          The Ridgid 18V Subcompact packs a punch in a small package. Its lightweight, compact design doesn’t compromise power, delivering excellent performance for diverse tasks. The brushless motor ensures durability and efficiency. The included LED light is a bonus for working in low-light areas. While the battery life is good, remember it’s part of Ridgid’s 18V lineup, so bring a battery!

          Impressive RIDGID Sub Compact Right Angle Impact Driver
          Very capable tool with good quality build, excellent balance and comfortable single handed use. The controls fall easily to hand and the large paddle trigger provides agility with confidence and enough power to do a proper job. The terms "Right Angle" and "Impact Driver" have never gone together as well as they do in this tool; making the most of the available 950 inch/lbs of torque and eight position adjustable head. It's powerful LED worklight really brightens up the work area. The stiffly sprung bit chuck is unlikely to ever let a bit escape unnecessarily. The usual belt clip and single bit holder firmly attach to the battery dock with just one screw each. One PH2 bit is provided and the standard 1/4 inch hex chuck will work with gazillions of readily available bits covering many fastening jobs.

          Nice, solid tool
          This is a nice solid tool. It has a brushless motor so it should work for a very long time. It uses the standard RIDGID 18V batteries so you can use batteries you have form other RIDGID products. This is an impact drive so is great for driving hard to drive screws or removing hard to break nuts. The right angle lends itself more to mechanical work rather than woodworking but it can be used either way.

          Light in hand, boatloads of power, handy to get into those tight spaces
          This Ridgid 18v subcompact right angle impact driver is a game changer! With the head only measuring 2.5 inches tall, not including the short hex bit, I can literally fit it anywhere! I had to replace the starter to the snowblower and a regular drill could not be used because of the larger head, which meant I would have had to remove the tire to get to it. Using this Ridgid right angle impact driver made it so I didn't have to disassemble anything, saving me a bunch of time! The on-board light is super bright and does a great job illuminating what I need to fasten or remove. The variable speed is very handy because I can gradually increase the speed with no worry of stripping the heads of the screw versus others that just have full-on or off. The collar bit retention is robust - just pull on the collar, insert your bit, and release. The grip the collar has on the bits is amazing! Using this right angle impact driver for extended periods of time is made easy because of the 2-finger trigger, versus other single finger models, thus greatly reducing hand fatigue. Holding this right angle impact driver in hand is very light, especially when paired with a 3AH battery. Since it is so light, I had it hanging on my belt loop, via the included belt hook, with no issue. A bit holder as well as a phillips bit is also included. My kitchen drawers were wood-on-wood, so I installed drawer slides on them and this Ridgid right angle impact made it a breeze to get into the corners. The brushless motor makes battery life last longer so I can work project after project. This is my new go-to!

          Functional and good value!!
          This right angle impact driver is perfect to help you get into tight spaces. The tool comes with a belt clip and also a bit holder and also has an on board LED light to help light up your work area while using the tool. It's well balanced and the design makes using the tool in tighter spaces easy. The right angle allows me to get into tighter spaces, especially working in between studs to install electrical boxes. It gets the job done!!

            Works well like most Ridgid tools. Great in tight spots where my regular impact driver couldn't fit. Maybe not the best in class but for the money it's great especially if you are already invested in the Ridgid 18v system
