Just bought this. Both batteries remain at 50% charge after charging for 8+ hours. This normal? Should I chargelonger?

Asked by: Stu
No, the smaller batteries in this kit should fully charge in about 45 min each. That's way too long. Sounds like a bad charger if you got everything setup properly. Did you read the manual on the charger and what the various lights mean?

When I shake my drive I here something sliding inside. Works fine. Just wierd that there is a noise sounds.

It sounds like the motor is lose. But not sure since there is a different drive compared to a traditional impact. It only makes noise if I shake it forwards the driver bit end and back torwards my wrist. No noise side to aide
Asked by: 2018dec1

STEALTH FORCE Brushless 18-Volt Hyper Lithium-Ion 1/4 in. Cordless Pulse Driver Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 204.

I have had limited use so far but one negative observation is the pulse action vs the impact driver. Some friends and I were doing a wheelchair ramp recently and some of the less experienced helpers seemed to be having control problems. With the pulse driver, it seemed like the driver was twisting in their grip causing the bit to lose contact with the screws. They were not having the same difficulty with my older impact driver. I was able to control the driver ok but did notice the tendency for twist as opposed to the impact driver. I'm not certain that I would recommend it as an entry level driver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from QUIET!!! Men at work…. Seriously Ridgid boost half the noise. It is very quiet compared to the traditional mechanical impacts but without a Dbs level indicator I cant confirm that fact. There is no torque spec in the operational manual but through the Ridgid power tool forum a rep. stated it is rated at 1700 in-lbs torque. Over all I like the tool. I have 5 tings I like that stood out. 1. Single handed quick release coupler 2. Tri Beam LED light to really illuminate your work area 3. Speed selector 4. Intergraded Bit storage + Phillips bit 5. Battery charge indicator The driver had no problem driving a ¼” x 4 ½” lag bolt in to a solid 4x6. It did struggle a little driving a 3/8” x 5” lag bolt into the same solid 4x6 but did drive it in. The noise was noticeably quieter. The only reason I give it 4 stars is I believe it struggles a little in the torque department. For screws, ¼” lag bolts and the low noise level it’s a 5 star. Any thing more 4 star. Check out the video below and I go through it from unpackaging to the test with the lag bolts

Nothing, not even previous ridgid guns come close to this gun. I never realised how good it was til I was given a 20V dewalt hammer drill/impact kit by work. I'm switching back to my own tools because the Dewalt impacts feels like an uncomfortable toy compared to the ridgid. Ergonomics, balance, feel, weight (the ridgid is heavier, I like it, some may not) and power all superior on the ridgid. And the dewalt is 50 more when sold separately.

It's true, this impact is MUCH less noisy than an impact with mechanical hammers in it, and has plenty of power to do the job. I have been using it outdoors on my property for fence, deck, and other projects. No worries about annoying the neighbors with loud impact noises. I highly recommend.

The only drawback is all of my operations staff has seen and used it, so I'll probably have to buy one for every member of my crew. Truly a great product. Nice feature, 3 speed options.

Several times on maximum power setting, I have tightened bolts & nuts into steel that it will not loosen. Battery lasts a long time and holds charge for weeks if needed.

It is also much quieter, which would be great for close neighbors, when trying to build a deck. Drive force is hard to control. Ridgid LSA is a headache.
