Is this powerful enough for a 6 inch hole saw through 1/2 inch plywood? I make cornhole boards & need something powerful enough for the hole.
Asked by: Matt
Yes. It's powerful enough. It will break your wrists if you're not careful. Honestly you should look for a drill press if you're making a lot of those. It will make life way easier and your hole saws will last much longer.

I've been looking for a corded power tool that will just drill and drive the screws. I'm so tired of having to throw out the cordless power tools because I use it seldom (once a year or so) and batteries don't charge any more by the time I needed it. . I have been looking on line and there so many listed, I don't know how to tell them apart. I recently bought a black and decker but that turned out defective so I didn't even get a chance to try out the unit. Is this drill what I am looking for?

8-Amp Corded 1/2 in. Heavy-Duty Variable Speed Reversible Drill is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 235.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs as expected for a quality tool. I wore out... Performs as expected for a quality tool. I wore out my old craftsman drill and have needed a new one for over a year. I made the mistake of buying a constant speed hardware store brand cheap drill to replace it and was unhappy with it. I bought this variable speed Ridgid drill for myself as a Christmas present from Santa. Turned out to be my best gift. I used it several times on projects the week after Christmas and was reminded what a difference a quality tool makes in accomplishing a project. Good price and quality drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough drill One of my four dewalts went out that were supplied when I built my poultry barns so I replaced it with one of these.. I waited for a while before I made a final decision because it does get a little warm under the trememdous stress that I subject it to but, I am going today to replace 3 remaining dewalts with this much superior drill. Faster, lighter, smoother and quieter.. I am almost as inpressed with this as I am with my 12yr old rigid 18v..

Low speed operation (for drilling metal) is extremely controllable - much better than my 3/8" drill. Plenty of torque, even at low speed. Adjustment, positioning and removal of auxiliary handle is quick and easy. Somewhat heavy - you'd probably choose a lighter 3/8" drill if you've got lots of small-diameter pilot holes to make in soft wood.

I use it to power an automotive scissor jack and it is able to lift up a 3000 pound car. Also has a nice carrying case. Only minor downside is it has a keyed chuck and not a hand chuck. Very satisfied

The screw that holds the chuck on the end of the drill keeps breaking! I’ve tried all other 1/2 drills and ridgid seems to be the best. Or atleast was. I have 5 at my shop that are broken from the last 6 months.

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.
