I just purchased the ridgid 12 volt drill, R82001 on sale at HD for $90 then saw all the mixed reviews on here about ridgid cordless drills. Got me a little worried so I picked up a dewalt 12 volt xrp DC980KA on a special at Lowes for $100 (this usually runs around $160 or so) with the intent on returning the R82001. After looking at the two drills the ridgid looks like it's put together better which has made the decision process harder. I know dewalt makes quality stuff that will last a while and it has more torque and better features but the fit of the casing just doesn't seem as good as the ridgid. Please help me decide cause one of these definitely has to go back to the store. Thanks.
