I’ve had several Ridgid drills and an impact driver for several years now. I also have their 18volt circular saw. Always do whatever task I ask of ‘em. No complaints here.

JoeinGa, I noticed your opinions in other posts on these. Helped me decide. Did you get your house in 10aSee sold then? larry

I’ve got the same set. I’ve had it for about two years, and have no complaints. Sure, the impact driver doesn’t have the most torque on the market, but I’ve never run into a fastener it couldn’t drive.

My only quasi-issue is that they’re a bit heavy for my taste. I like to keep the drill and impact driver in the bottom of my toolbox, since I do a lot of work away from home for people. 18V sets, even lithium ion based ones, are heavy compared to 12V tools.

I have used several sets of rigid drills. Be sure to register the lifetime battery warranty!

Thanks Guys – that is reassuring and I have registered them. It takes up to two weeks to get conformation on the registering. I guess their computers are a bit slow :) larry

I registered a Ridgid product I bought Sunday and I got the registration confirmation Tuesday. ..Surprised the heck out of me.

However I was also a bit surprised to find out :

“This Lifetime Service Agreement is not a warranty; it does not alter or limit the 3-Year Limited Service Warranty provided with your product, and it is not intended to create any implied warranties or rights of any kind….”

Really ? A “Lifetime Service Agreement” is limited by a “3-Year Limited Service Warranty” ? I need to be a lawyer to figure that out.

I believe what they just said is that they will always be willing to fix your tools if they break….as long as you pay for them to do so.

That is funny, I guess I’ll have to wait and see.
