From time to time I share tools from The Home Depot as part of the Tool ProSpective. Today I’m giving the Ridgid 18V octane cordless, brushless 1/2″ hammer drill / driver a whirl and sharing the details with you. It’s not often I need a hammer drill but it is nice to have one on hand when the need arises. Let’s get a closer look at this powerful drill.
Introducing the Ridgid cordless brushless hammer drill driver tool. A hefty tool with tons of power for high demand situations.
Like most new power tools these days this hammer drill features a brushless motor and advanced electronics that provide best-in-class power and intelligence. The Ridgid hammer drill runs off the same 18V batteries you use for other Ridgid power tools. This drill is an Octane tool which means you get the best performance when paired with an Octane battery. It leads the industry with 1300 in. / lb. of torque and over 65% more power. This means, under heavy loads, the tool talks to the battery to determine when to draw maximum power to the motor, allowing the tool to increase performance and finish the task.
Quite a beautiful chuck and although you can’t see it in the pictures there is a chuck light. The light is located inside the chuck providing unobstructed light directly out of the chuck which eliminates shadows around the bit. Also the micro-clutch allows pin-point accuracy with over 100 torque settings.
The mode selector, located directly behind the chuck, allows you to quickly transition between driving, drilling and hammer modes. A hammer drill is a must when drilling into masonry like concrete or stone and with the mode selector on this drill drive you can easily switch from hammer mode into drilling or driving. Although this Ridgid hammer drill is at its best when paired with an Octane battery it is 100% compatible with all Ridgid 18V batteries. A hammer drill is a must when drilling into masonry like concrete or stone
Included in the package:
- (1) 18-Volt octane brushless 1/2 in. hammer drill / driver
