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 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love using this tool. It's light in weight. Love the fact it is cordless. Hubby and I decided to invest in new tools for a project we were doing. He decided to go cordless. Good call. I love how light this tool is. Some tools have the light that comes on as soon as you press the trigger. That really helps too. I like having the extra battery. It charges in no time at all. It holds its charge longer than others we've had. That is a great time saver. I really like having a bag that all the tools go in. Really handy. All our tools are outside in the garage but for some reason, this set stays inside. Wonder why? Love it. November 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price and batteries hold up great My dad got me the drill for Christmas. It has been great. I love how ridgid has a lifetime warranty. November 26, 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.
