  • 1/2" hammer drill

    Great drill, strong motor (this seems to be the case w/ ever ridgid I have so far) the keyless chuck is tricky, sometimes I have no problem loosening the chuck and other times it is so tight I have to put the drill in reverse and grab it tight. Torque and speed adjustments are nice, 1st gear has nice low end torque, 2nd gear is strong and fast. I'm happy!

    I just bought a 1/2" Hammer Drill (Corded) off of ebay. It was a refurb. I had to drill into an old existing footing to tie in some rebar with a room addition I was building. The saw performed great. I wore out two bits trying to drill into that old stuff that was hard as solid rock. The drill didn't get hot nor missed a beat. I guess I just need to invest in some better bits.
