I bought it said it because it said it was a gear-driven Chuck drill. Drilling a double to buy 8 into a six-by-six it bogged I I figured it would have a little bit more power than it did. An I wished it was 2speeds . I did like the chuck key setup an the pug with the opening to hook onto the wire for power cords or rapping it around it self. I do miss power tools with that on the plug . It dose have power. My only complaint it's not a two speed

Well, first job in broke my wrist. Was concerned that the 8 amp. Would not have the same power as my 8.6, this concern has been eliminated in grand style. Handles well with all the (plus) power required for the job at hand.

My husband and I just used our new drill to mix 12 buckets of driveway filler sealer (latex-ite Optimum.) We've sealed our driveways in the past where we mixed the sealer by hand, and it was brutal.This time we bought a mixing paddle accessory, attached it to the drill, and mixed the sealer quickly and effortlessly. The drill was easy to use, had more than enough power to quickly and thoroughly mix the sealer which had inches of sand/fibre settled at the bottom. We wish we had used this drill with the "eggbeater" attachment when we sealed our driveways in the past. It would have saved us a lot of time, energy, and sore muscles! The tool felt great in our hands -- solid, good weight distribution, low vibration, quiet, and the 360 degree auxiliary handle really made for easy and comfortable handling. Work smarter; not harder - get this drill! It exceeds all expectations.

Great for pros and Joe's alike
I'm a professional tile installer and I've personally used one of these to mix thinset mortar on a daily basis for years. The cord will need replaced b4 the motor on this thing goes bad. Regardless with the lifetime warranty you know Rigid stands behind their products and that they built to last. The lifetime warranty is awesome, as a pro we inevitably have tools break due to heavy use and Ridgid has fixed everyone under warranty for free no questions asked. Can't beat it.

    The drill is nice but lacks the torque needed for most jobs. We were assured by the Home Depot specialist it would be up to the challenge of drilling tendons but it clearly is not. We are now having to buy a different drill due to the lack of performance of this one.
