GEN5X 18-Volt Lithium-Ion 1/2in. Cordless Brushless Compact Hammer Drill is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by DavidQ from Very good product, just doesn't really replace a 120v hammer drill For most drilling operations this is a great cordless drill. I bought this in part for the hammer drill feature. When I tried drilling 1/2" holes in concrete for anchors the 1/2" hole size was too much for the this tool, it just couldn't drill deeper than 1/4" or so. It might work just fine for smaller holes, but in my experience I don't often have the need to drill small holes in concrete or masonry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mammoth from Good power This drill has plenty power for most applications. Works great for 3/8" and smaller (haven't used any larger) holes with masonry bits. great with spade bits in wood. The chuck can loosen while drilling occasionally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kraftwerksman from Hammer time When it comes to brick drilling this is the best deal around. There is no overhype to the Gen5x line so far. The torque settings are easy to adjust. Make a quick turn on the chuck until it clicks and twist the stabilizing handle on and go to town with the anchor holes. This one is only under lit with a single base mounted LED. Not like the non-brushless model, but that is no deal breaker. It has a standard belt clip included. I can't seem to get this drill to run out of battery juice ever on any project on just a single battery. Run time gets crazy on the brushless Ridgids. It hasn't bogged down yet either. With the price of these it just doesn't make sense how Ridgid is able to give you you so much and still keep it affordable? Solid tool!
