is this rigid hammer drill able to be used for driving screws, as in a wood deck?

is this rigid hammer drill able to be used for driving screws, as in a wood deck?
Asked by: bill homeowner
It is capable of the job, but wouldn't be my tool of choice. It's made more for drilling holes, while an impact driver is the multi use drill/driver ideal for decking

Is lifetime warranty on this tool any better then the "lifetime warranty" on the 2 cordless drills I bought?

Asked by: Frank
You ask if the "Lifetime Warranty" is better on this drill? I've have two 12volt and four 18volt batteries replaced. My 12volt pro drill was sent in and replaced with a standard 12volt drill, 2 batteries and a charger because the 12volt pro was no longer manufactured. When my 18volt drill quit, I sent it, a battery and a charger and in return a got a new charger and a new brushless 18volt drill. So I have to ask, what "Lifetime Warranty" could be any better?

Can this drill also be used to mix mud?

Strong enough to mix mortar?

Asked by: SchuylerHagglund
Yes, I've used it for that before, but if you're mixing a lot, I would upgrade to the Ridgid 9 Amp Corded 1/2 in. Spade Handle Mud Mixer.
