Once the battery gets to half or low forget it. I would advise buying a 4amp or 6 Amp battery to use it. Also, don't use an aftermarket battery. You must use genuine Rigid for it to work right. So it's good and not good at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Earned my go to tool - leave the others cased The features: • well balanced with either power pack included • the torque is impressive - the slight hesitation when you first pull the trigger is a reminder of what is to come • the compact size for a 1/2” drill provides easy access in tight situations • very impressed with functionality - have not needed to use the hammer side as of yet Recommend this tool

this product says it has hammer mode. does this mean it can be used as a concrete chisel/chipper ?

Asked by: nicholas
Hi nicholas, Thanks for reaching out to us. This 18V Brushless Cordless Sub-Compact 1/2-inch Hammer Drill/Driver (Tool-Only) has a hammer mode. You'll simply switch the front chuck over to the hammer setting, with this, you will notice more power and an anvil punching option that'll help power through concrete and drill through more tough materials. This is not an SDS-Plus hammer drill and wouldn't be suitable for chiseling or chipping of concrete. We do carry other SDS drills for this purpose, for more information, contact 1-800-474-3443. Thanks, RIDGID Canada Team.

What is the difference between this drill and R86116KSB

Asked by: Salik
Hi -Salik, Thanks for reaching out to us. The major differences between R86116KSB and this 18V Brushless Cordless Sub-Compact 1/2" Hammer Drill/Driver is weight and compact size. Our new Sub-Compact line of tools are less weight and more compact when compared to our current tools. They offer the same power and torque but reduce user fatigue. To learn more about our new products and offerings please contact 1-800-474-3443. Thanks, RIDGID Canada Team.
