Rated 1 out of 5 by Broke on first use I bought this tool in May 2015 in preparation to do work on a home I was purchasing. When I used it for the first time in September 2015, within 5 minutes, I noticed orange pieces flying out of the back of the tool and pieces of what appear to be black electrical wire shavings hitting me in the face. I was simply drilling small pilot holes into a 2x4! It looks as though the fan blades in the rear of the tool somehow all snapped and caused internal damage to the drill! I took it to Home Depot and they stated they would not replace it until I took it to an authorized warranty repair center. I called all of the authorized centers in my area and none of them can even look at it until 3-4 weeks after I drop it off. If they determine they cant fix it, they have all said that they need to send it to Rigid to either be repaired or replaced. When I asked how long that would take, I was told up to 2 months from when they send it in! That means I am without a tool for 3 months! Absolutely ridiculous! I will be dropping it off, and since I know they are going to be replacing it since it is beyond repair, I'm sure that it will be replaced, but I am without the tool that I need more than anything else. This has been nothing but an absolute hassle and I will never buy another Rigid tool again! November 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware of Bogus Warranty The Warranty is a Joke. My drill has an intermittent problem. I called Ridgid directly. They said i couldn't mail in my drill. I had to carry it to the tool center at HD. The tool rental charges me $18 to test the drill then says it's not covered by warranty because it doesn't act up for them. I'm out $18 and still have a drill with a problem. The date code on the drill is the 30th week of 2014. Its only a year old. It's takes two hour long round trips every time I try to get it covered by warranty. Just to add insult to injury they also charge me $18. October 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent drill! My wife bought me this when we bought our first home. My first nice power tool of my own; this tool sold me on Ridgid and I have since completed my collection. In the three years I have owned this drill I have used it countless times and it's power and battery life still impress me. I even used it in a pinch to mix joint compound and that is after it spent three days sinking countless drywall screws. It is a bit heavy but that is true of all drills in this class. From concrete anchors to lag screws this thing has helped me get it all done. May 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight for size. great torque. Very good torque for being cordless. Main use is for drilling 5/8in. holes in joists/studs for electric runs. December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cannot beat the warranty anywhere! Top quality drill/driver. A lot of engineering has been put into this model. Dependable long lasting power w/ a lifetime service agreement nobody can match. December 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good quality, excellent warranty Quality drill that holds up with all other brands. Great warranty love that it includes batteries! November 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have not had any problems with this product. I have had other cordless drills but the Ridgid has out performed all of them. Would recomed ridgid products to any one who uses cordless tools.Ridgid stands behind their product. Thinks Bright. November 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very powerful and versatile. Great drill. You can feel the power when you use it. The led light is great, and no one can beat the warranty. November 28, 2014

I'd like to have a way to carry my drill hands free while working in the woods. I have seen some models have a clip that would allow it to attach to some tool belts. If there is another way or certain belts or holsters please advise.

Thank you for your interest!

Unfortunately, RIDGID does not make or market a belt clip or holster accessory that would allow the R8611502 drill/driver to attach to a belt, or to be holstered.

Yes, all RIDGID 18V platform tools and batteries are interchangeable. However, the RIDGID 18V Lithium Ion batteries do require their correct charger.

I just bought my tool through home depot, i'm about to register it for a lifetime waranty. I'm a little disapointed in the research i did just one look at the ridgid website and im finding that the waranty isnt all i thought it was, alas thats not the issue here, yet. Ok, brand new tool, smells great, looks great, i havn't used it in a practical aplication yet. I've just pulled the trigger checked out the cool lights admired the torque etc... Anyways i see sparks at the back of the motor housing, and a slight electrical smell, not a bad one (like a burning motor), maybe just a new tool smell. I'm concerned about the sparks, its probably just dust, or something and will go away, but i dont want to ruin the tool by using it if it potentially has a problem. That being said i do want to use the tool. Is this normal? If this causes a problem are you going to blame me and not cover it? I guess thats all i want, thanks i look forward to a reply.

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID.

Yes, it is normal to see some arching, which some people refer to as sparking, inside of the motor of any tool that has a motor that uses carbon brushes. If it is a new tool, it should settle down after a little usage.

If you are seeing actual sparks coming out of the tools vents, that is not normal and a local RIDGID authorized service provider should be contacted and the tool properly checked.

Regards,
RIDGID
