Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome tool I've owned the best milwaukee M18 can not touch this or even come close son! This tool is a Monster, a Power House a tool that i can depend on and will knock out work that some Air tools, and tools with cords can't even do! And not to mention you can fill out the lifetime warranty on the tools and your covered for life! January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEASTMODE!!! I have had them all you name it all the best brands I have used them. I own a marine electrical company all my guys used the drill for the hardest jobs the drill with a 3amp battery never stops and when it does just change it. They are never tried keeps wanting more. pure animal of a drill. the red m18 don't have noting of this drill. buy if you smart... January 13, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Drill works fine--chuck not so good UIed drill with ice auger adapter. Chuck on drill seized up. Had to send batteries, charger, drill driver and complete outfit in. My cordless skilsaw is useless without batteries. Bought drill and had it for a month. Still waiting 2 weeks and no word when I get drill and ice auger adapter back. Lifetime warranty should take care of this. Glad I am not a contractor that has to rely on my tools. January 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough enough I'm hard on my drills. Drilling through block ,brick, concrete, metal. I'm the guy that pushes hard to get the job done. the only thing i get from the drill is that it wants more. It's great to have a tool that puts out as much a I give it. I've dropped it, kicked it, and put in battery after battery, working it as hard as i can. It doesn't overheat, it doesn't stop, doesn't drop the bits. It just keeps putting out. It sits great in my hand and is well balanced. It's not too heavy and it's got alot of torque. I enjoy the hammer option, drill option and screw option. All in all, this is a great drill.

Your basic hammer drill uses SDS bits for drill or chisel operations. What type of masonry bits does this use? Is there a way to use chisel bits with this tool?

Answer: 
There is not a specific brand of bit that RIDGID can recommend. We recommend you use carbide-tipped masonry impact bits or designated hammer drill bits when drilling holes in brick, tile, concrete, etc. and please make sure the drill is placed in hammer mode. No, the R8611501 is not capable of using chisel type bits.

Thank you

Answer: 
Home Depot is not actually the only source. New LSA qualifying RIDGID power tool purchases can be made through Direct Tool outlets (limited supplies), as well as through RIDGID plumbing tool supply distributors that order and sell new RIDGID wood working power tools.
