Quality light, has an older brother
I own two generations of these work lights from ridgid, and recommend them for designed use. R8693 - 110 lumens R8694 - 330 lumens Prior lasts a lot longer, so in some respects i prefer the dimmer one. Limitations: They have few head positions, and one setting for brightness. Unique advantages: long runtimes, predictable output, durability. Using it for designed purpose: emergency light around the house, exploring an attic or a cave, it does exceptionally well. Worklight it is limited as its missing regulation of brightness and swivel of the head. For the latter, ridgid makes light cannon that has all these features and sells for 100usd. SUGGESTION FOR DEV TEAM incorporate cannon features for the smaller light. Adding it back into kits would justify them more. I am open to review and add help develop new features in Ridgid peoducts.

    Quality product.
    Flashlight is model R8694. I will cover specs, quality, other models and some additional uses i have not seen mentioned here. I will also cover suggestions for next iterations BOTToM LINE Bottom line upfront: excellent simple, reliable tool. Optimal price 20 usd. OK price 30 usd. PERFORMANC The flashlight outputs 300 lumens, which can not be altered or refocused. This means that the tool has minimal settings. None really. This is a double edged sword, as you can not focus or dissipate the beam as needed. As its set right for the middle (17inch diameter daylight circle at 15 feet, with about a 13 feet diameter circle where the light decipates and makes things somewhat visible.) SPECS this model is R8694, 300 lumens. Its predecessor is R8693B, 100 lumens (outside looks the same but less light is outputted, resulting in longer battery life. Specifically it was 48 continuous hours of being on on a 4AH battery if i recall. This is absolutely insane performance without any issues with overheating. It can still be bought as part of a 5Gen 5 tool combo kit (500usd online, 400 in many New England Home depot stores as of Spring 2021) Next model will be smaller, have a rafter hook, and likely have light stream modifications. (Not available as of Spring 2021) OTHER USES Besides jobsite uses are well covered here, it is a useful tool in off hours. Putting a battery on it and your whole family can safely use it if power go out, or if you need to change a tire in the rain. I took it on expeditions with me. Just a battery, no charger. It worked great and i could shine light at basecamp for hours as well as have a droppable light exploring world war 2 fortifications, which i could set down if need be and get closer to object im exploring. People were impressed when i could have it on for what seemed like all night, and still have plenty of charge left as we were packing up to go home. FOR HOME DEPOT I am interested in joining the seed program, as well as get a chance to review products not yet out. SUGGESTION Place a usb port, so it can double up as a phone charger. Add a joint to swivel the head down and up 45 degrees so i could use it as a more effective desklamp in field conditions. CONCLUSIONS FOR FUTURE MODELS Now i bought this tool separate, paid either 20-30 dollars and feel i got a quality product. In retrospect not super competitive price but because i see its strong points, and use them, the importance of a higher price is not a thorn.

        Best compact drive in the world hands down!!!!!!
        The Ridgid octane impact driver is way better than I expected. I read a ton of review on home depot and on ridgid.com and there were some complaints that this driver didn't have as much power as the previous model driver. Well I can re-assure you and tell you this has plenty of power in this bad boy. Actually more than you'll probably ever need. I've built a storage for my snow blower, mounted fast tracks in garage, installed a deck, built 2 walls, installed ring doorbell pro and many other projects around my property and it was really nice having this driver this summer. I wish had gotten this years ago b/c it would of saved me time in building things. Side note: If you're considering the subcompact driver vs this driver like I did, go for this driver with more power. I'm really glad I did because having that extra power is nice and I've had no problems using this in my home as well. Its still small enough and light enough to use in small spots. Lastly the battery lasts easily a half a day when using it full on with no stops but then it charges quick. I think in under 30 minutes it was charged and ready. So I charged it during lunch breaks which was perfect. Or if you're doing small projects in your home I've found it lasts a solid 3-4 weeks when you aren't using it full on. Its a great value for the battery power and charge. Also don't forget to send in your warranty card immediately after purchasing so you'll get lifetime warranty. If you forget you'll only get the 1 or 2 year warranty. I'm pumped that I got lifetime warranty on this bad boy. I'll never have to buy another driver unless this company goes under. If you're on the fence do yourself a favor and go get it now because you'll finish a ton of projects and it's so much fun to use too! Go Ridgid Octane Driver all day any day!!!!!

        good small radio but need improvement.
        First of the all, the whole package did not come as retail package. it is fine by me because i did not have to rip anything open. lol. the radio is light weight and easy to carry around. sound was mediocre. i think my cheap milwaukee radio (2590-20) sounds better. but for a single speaker, it does pretty good job. sound is still clear even at loudest volume. it comes with a short 3.5mm male/male cable to connect aux port. honestly, the cable is too short. for a radio that does not have compartment to store a phone, that cable is useless. the bluetooth connection is good. i played my music from youtube no problem. i did try the ridgid radio app briefly. it functions well. it gives me control of the radio while on bluetooth. it did crash once when i tried the announcement function in the app. but that function is useless. tried a few times and it doesnt work. i agreed with other review about the app. why does it need my location while connecting it? it doesnt make sense to me. charging port is slow. it can keep up with the music playing and bluetooth function but it is not fast enough. overall it is a good jobsite radio but there are some cons i want to see ridgid will implement for the next radio. - wish it comes with a power cable. - faster charging port. - an adapter or pocket that can attach to the battery for phone storage. - a handle to hang the radio.

          Lies
          Example, when you buy tools is fine but if you going to have problems with same than you have problems, thay said lifetime service but if you didn't register your tool waranti doesn't work. I bought kit tool for house and didn't use it maybe 15-20 times in 11 years and battery want charge, 2009 i start to register tool but didn't finish for some reason and thay can't do anything about it, I will check how much is 2 new batteries and how much Ridgid company will lose if they send free 2 new ones.

            Did my research and tested out different tools at the store. Ridgid's Octane Impact Driver was the best choice for me. Hard to beat Ridgid's Lifetime Service Agreement. This impact driver was the main tool in putting together a giant play set and it was awesome.
