Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hammer drill I bought this drill and have nothing bad at all to say about it. Using a good bit, this was able to power its way through concrete with ease. By the way, throw away the concrete bit that comes with the screws and spend the extra 5 bucks on a good bit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ridgid 2-Speed Hammerdrill I would not recommend this hammerdrill for drilling into concrete ie. pre-drilling holes for tapcon screws. I had every 3/16 tapcon bit melt that I bought, and I bought ALOT. I then went and rented a Bosch 7/8 SDS rotary hammer and never used a second bit. The tool as a drill works great but is extremely poor as a hammerdrill. I would recommend spending the extra hundred dollars and buying the Bosch model, I guarantee you will not regret the Bosch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from so-so the drill itself is ok. i bought this drill for a home project where we were adding a cedar fence on top of a concrete retaining wall. i'm not 100% sure if it was the drill or the bits, but it seemed to take forever to drill into the concrete. the drill itself seems to be well-made and hasn't failed me, i'm just not overly impressed with it's performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RIDGID - 8.5-Amp 1/2 in. Heavy Duty Hammer Drill I purchased this hammer drill as a companion to my 7.5 amp model. The 8.5 amp model has a much stronger gear box, which does not heat up like the 7.5 amp model. Thus, I am able to use this 8.5 amp model longer and for heavier duty projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frustrated With "My" Home Depot It is very hard to pick out a tool when you can't hold it in you hands and judge the feel or quality of it. My tools are very important to me and I want the best bang for my buck.That is why I choose Ridgid tools because of their quality and great warranty. The problem is my store has a very small display of Ridgid tools. I asked at my Home Depot why they have such a small display and they said it was all up to head office. With Home Depot being the "Official Distributor" for Ridgid Tools and the only place to buy Ridgid Tools in order to receive the life time warranty, I can't understand the reason for such a poor display. Dewalt, Milwaukee, and Ryobi all have larger displays than Ridgid in my store. That seems funny when they are the Ridgid Distributor. This makes it very hard to buy the Ridgid tools I want because I have to try and pick out a tool on line. If there are four drills to chose from how do I know I am making the right choice without handling them? The drill I purchased is great but how do I know I got the best one for me?? Thanks Rick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hammer Drill The Heavy Duty Hammer Drill works very well on drilling of my three year old concrete basement floor. However, I'm not very fond of the dept gauge bar as it often disengage on it's own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rigid 1/2 inch heavy duty hammer drill Drill is lightweight perfect for drilling wood and concrete My only complaint would be where cord attaches into drill over time it loses contact or wire break

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Drill I used it with a 2" tenon cutter on ash with no problem. It is a powerful drill. It is long so may be a problem in a tight spot.

Can this drill also be used to mix mud?

Asked by: Mark
Nope! It would toast it pretty fast.

Can the Chuck be Converted to An SDS Chuck?

Asked by: Anonymous
No. That is only found on a rotary hammer drill. Different design of tool. We do make one in the Ryobi line sold at the Depot. If you want a professional one, then Milwaukee has what you need.
