Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great ridgid tool I'm an electrician by trade and just got tired of carrying around a massiv rotary drill with the cords getting caught and everything. I figured I'd give this one a try, since ridgid has always come through for me in the past. Well, I've been taken care of once again this drill pokes holes in 100 year old brick and concrete like a dream. I've even lent it to some flooring contractors to pull up some tile flooring. The battery life is excellent and has held up to my constant abuse everyday on the job. I highly recommend this tool to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet drill I picked this hammer up awhile back for a project. I had a retaining wall with a concrete coating that wasn't easily coming off. This was the perfect tool for the job. I through in a 2 inch chisel and went to town on the wall. I have to say the chisel function is awesome! It powered through the concrete coating really well. The battery life is also great I only used one charge to get all the coating off the wall. Now it was time for the tedious part of putting on the new coating...ridgid do you have a tool for that? Haha Overall this hammer is a great tool to have in the shop I don't use it often but when a need a beast of a drill I know I have one ready to go get the job done! Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels great in the hands I picked this up at my local Home Depot a few weeks ago for a big project that required a lot of holes to be drilled in concrete. I have to say out of the box it felt great in the hands and was well balanced. Once I through a 6 amp hour octane battery in it the tool came to life! I started right in at drilling and was surprised at how little vibration I felt compared to other brands of rotary drills I've used. It flew through the concrete like butter. The battery life was also impressive. After a whole day of blasting through concrete I only stopped once to put another battery in. Well built tool and will withstand everyday use. I highly recommend this rotary hammer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shears through tile like butter I bought this tool, figuring the $50 bucks more it cost than renting a tile chipper would be worth having the tool forever. I was right. While it happily sucked through 4Ah batteries (I was rotating all 4 of mine through my chargers just to keep up with it's hunger), it just as happily ate through tile and thinset alike in Chipping mode. It made what would have otherwise been a 2-3 day job with a hammer and chisel into a 4 hour job. The only complaints I have are the battery consumption (which is understandable given how much power it outputs), and that the motor casing gets too hot to touch without leather gloves after only an hour of constant use (Again, understandable).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great start! I picked up this tool to do some demolition work on a masonry wall for a new bathroom installation. The tool handled great, but it ate my batteries so fast. If this came in a CORDED version, it would have saved me a huge chunk of time changing and recharging batteries. Please PLEASE Ridgid make this a corded tool and it will be 5 stars all the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool that packs a punch. This sds drill packs a punch. In power and speed. I am a electrician of 16 years and will never use anything else. It save a lot of time.no need to roll out a cord and get the big chipping hammer, this sds packs a punch. Need to put tapcons in this sds will do it 3x faster that the regular hammer drill I would recommend this to anyone you will not be disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kick the cord! Bought this about a month ago and have drilled about 400 1/4" holes and about 900 1/2" holes about 3" deep. It sure beats lugging 100 feet of extension cord around! Even though I haven't owned it long I feel like I've put it to good use. It doesn't seem too be slowing down any either. It;s been dropped and abused and is still chugging through concrete. I just went and bought a second one today because my corded one crapped out on me. I haven't used the chipping feature on it yet, so I can't comment on that. When I do, I will update my review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "ABOUT TIME RIDGID"TOPSHELF ROTARY SDS HAMMER DRILL ABOUT BLOODY TIME!! The toolkit is almost cordless complete. I bought the AEG version 5 years ago, and finally RIDGID have delivered. Back to review, the drill itself is full of top features. 4mode selector, chisel, drill, hammer drill aand free rotate. YAnti vibration rear handle, no white finger here. Front handle with integrated depth gauge. Pull back chuck for easy it insertion. powerful 2.3joules impact force. on a typical day I use it to drill 50 x7mm holes 3inch deep for fixings.it just laughs at concrete. With my AEG i was informed would take 3 weeks to actually wear it's self in.haven, t got to that point yet with RIDGID, . but TV to my eye both AEG RIDGID ARE IDENICAL. SO I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ALL PRO USERS

Gen5X model

I bought a R86710B (on box) as I was told it was the Gen5X model. All my other Gen5X tools say it on the tool but this one does not. The tool says R86710, I was told the one without the "B" is old model. What is the model number for the 4X?
Asked by: panigale899
This model itself is not GEN5X, but it is the most current model we offer.

What is the maximum diameter bit recommended for use?

Asked by: snoll5165
7/8 Bit is the max. Rule of thumb though, use half the size of the chuck for bits and your tool will work it's best.
