Can this battery be used to replace an old battery?

Asked by Amateurish July 10, 2015

Answer

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID! RIDGID dedicated 24V tools are not capable of being used with RIDGID 18V batteries, they require RIDGID 24V battery #130377001, which can be ordered through the master parts distributor at 1-877-544-9253. Only the RIDGID Max-select dual voltage 18V/24V tools were capable of using or being powered by both RIDGID 18V and 24V batteries. Regards, RIDGID

Big enough to fit everything including extra accessories like extra drill bits etc. Not too much bigger than that.

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID! Both kits contain the same R8611501 18V X4 hammer drill. The differences in the kits are the batteries. The R8611502K comes with 2.0 Ah 18V batteries, where the R8611501K kit contains 3.0 Ah batteries. Regards, RIDGID

What type of bits can I use with this?

Asked by ScottyJ December 4, 2013
2
Answers

There is not a specific brand of bit that RIDGID can recommend. We recommend you use carbide-tipped masonry impact bits or designated hammer drill bits when drilling holes in brick, tile, concrete, etc. and you should make sure the drill is placed in hammer mode. No, the R8611501 is not capable of using chisel type bits. Thank you RIDGID

does the battery have a 3 year warranty only or the LSA warranty?

Asked by darklord April 18, 2013
3
Answers

If you buy the battery alone it will have 3 years warranty. If you buy the battery with, for example, a kit ("they said an elegible product")AND ALSO ENTER TO RIDGID.COM, inscribe your product and send the original receipt, with the original upc, and a printing where you inscribe the product, to the address that they give you in the site, it will have a LSA warranty. Once they verified your documents, they send a notification about the inscription in the LSA plan. And yes, in this instance, include the batteries!!! The following is a copy and paste from the Ridgid site: RIDGID® Brand Hand Held Power Tools, Stationary Power Tools, and Pneumatic Tools are automatically covered under a 3-year Limited Warranty. This 3-Year Limited Warranty begins from the date of purchase shown by a valid receipt. If a valid receipt is not available, the 3 year limited warranty period begins from the date of manufacture on originally purchased equipment. For batteries and chargers, if the receipt is not available, and the battery/charger serial code differs from tool console more than 12 weeks, the origin of the battery/charger cannot be verified. In this case, the tool serial code must be used to verify warranty, NOT the battery/charger serial code. Note that all accessory batteries and chargers sold separately must have a valid receipt to verify warranty status since they are not sold with a tool console in a kit. Lifetime Service Agreement The original purchaser of an eligible product may elect to register for a free Lifetime Service Agreement. To accept this Lifetime Service Agreement, you must register your product and submit proof of purchase for processing approval as described below. The Lifetime Service Agreement provides the original owner of qualifying RIDGID® Brand tools a lifetime of free replacement batteries, free service and free replacement parts subject to the limitations set forth below. The Lifetime Service Agreement is available free of charge, on all eligible RIDGID® Brand hand held power tools, stationary power tools and pneumatic tools, subject to the terms and conditions stated below. Customers have 90 days from date of purchase to register tools for the Lifetime Service Agreement. Once all conditions of the registration process are fulfilled, the tool’s service coverage lasts the lifetime of the original purchaser. The Lifetime Service Agreement status on a tool is not transferable to persons other than the original purchaser. Note: The RIDGID Lifetime Service Agreement is only available for eligible RIDGID tools purchased at THE HOME DEPOT.

Will this handle a 5/8" drill bit (3/8" shank) drilling a 2 1/2" deep hole in my garage slab?

Asked by Dan January 21, 2013
3
Answers

I haven't gone to 5/8", but did do ½" and it worked well. When drilling into concrete with either this drill or my much larger corded drill, I always start with a smaller bit to drill to the depth I want and then enlarge it with the bigger bit. It's usually faster, even counting the time to change bits. Be aware that rocks and rebar will really slow you down. In fact, it's likely rebar will destroy the carbide tip on your masonry drill. If you live fairly far from the store, keep a spare on hand. Drilling into concrete blocks is a breeze, by comparison!

Is no. 1 low speed or high speed

Asked by TR October 31, 2012

Answers

low, as suitable to avoid trashing screws being driven, while high is likely to destroy what it's working on because of "excessive torque" according to the instruction manual

I like how versatile this product is. I used the drill feature to make a 8-1/4" dia. hole in a 1/4" thick corrugated aluminum panel to mount a ventilation fan. I used the hammer drill feature to make holes in a concrete slab to install drive-way markers so I can easily find my drive-way when I return home after a heavy snow-fall or dense fog. I really like the feature where you can turn the drill light on before the drill starts to turn. Great Product.

I've owned a lot of different brand drills over the years as a contractor. But no other drill matches the strength and versatility of this drill. And most important no one backs their product better than Ridgid. You know how many other companies back their batteries with a warranty like Ridgid?, NONE.

Ridgid 18V Cordless Hammer Drill/Driver Kit
Drill/driver with batteries and charger was a good purchase. Lifetime warranty (if proper paperwork filed in time) seems great (will update once I need to replace batteries).

They All Have Bit Wobble

Chuck up any bit less the 1/4 inch and it wobbles. 3/16" bit in metal and you get a hole closer to 1/4". I called Ridgid and they say thats normal and the drill isn't designed for such small bits. Went to 3 different Home Depot stores and tested many others right out of the box that did the same thing. Put my bit in 3 other brands at HD and it was perfect. I will now return all my Ridgid cordless tools and switch brands.Shame on Ridgid.

bring back the old ridgid hammer drill!!!!
I use to be a big fan of the ridgid tools. I originally started to use the ridgid line of tools about eight years ago out in the plumbing field and had no troubles. This past year my old hammer drill finally died. The motor burnt out and figured I would just buy the x4 hammer drill and impact driver set.... the circular saw and sawzall still worked good for me. So there was no need to buy the whole 5 piece set. In a four month period of time I burnt up two brand new x4 hammer drills. I decided to take one apart to see what happened to it... the inside design had been changed on the motor and bearings. The rear bearing sits in the plastic housing and melts the plastic when it gets to hot... never had that problem with the old set!!! I just bought the makita set and blows the ridgid set away!!!!!

hope wasn't reality
Had high hopes when I bought this from the store that it could solve my "in the field" electric supply problems with previous hammer drills. Instead, the charger kept coming up with "defective" identifications of its batteries, even though it later appeared to complete charging them when I tried again. Having gotten both batteries "apparently" fully charged, I proceeded to try to drill two common holes of the sort that I typically need to do dozens at a time in the "concrete like" ground on my place. It took THREE COMPLETE RECHARGES to get those two common holes drilled. NOT a practical solution to have to keep running back to my house to recharge batteries to drill two commonly needed holes. Yes, it's "possible" the batteries and/or charger actually were defective and that the product "usually" works, but the one I bought dissuades me from trying any battery operated tool in the future.
