  • New Ridgid Tools at my HD!

    So I was at my HD this morning and saw them wheeling out a pallet of new Ridgid tools. They had the radio for $149 and a 1/2" hammer drill kit with 2 3ah 18 volt li batteries for $225. Not bad considering a single battery goes for $99.

      No, it does not function as a charger.

        Don't really understand why the radio was made without a charger.

          Gentlemen, welcome to the forum. And, rather than start another thread with whether or not the radio works as a charger, best to do a search for other pre-existing threads. There's been some good conversation and info passed along regarding these new tools, and all of the various pros and cons.

            I hope that 1/2" drill kit with the two 3.0 batts comes with a charger? Very good deal, I would probably try to sell the drill. Who am I kidding, if I buy this kit I'm keeping the drill!

              this thread is not about the radio being a charger or not, it was about him informing us that the new tools are starting to flow into stores

                Exactly my point.

                And ouch. $149? Man, what is up with these prices? Some people have seen it for $139, it was originally supposed to be $129 at one point. It's actually priced at $139 up here in Ontario, Canada.

                  I saw this drill a few days ago and it does have a charger.

                    I saw the 18v lith ion drill ($225) today along with the new 4pc ($449). They really don't look much different than the older 18v NiCd versions. No led light on the drill or impact. I tried to get a pic of the TS2410, but it's still too high up in the overhead storage.

                      i picked up the radio today and the 12volt pocket drill. both very nice. also i saw the 18v litium hammer drill combo and it uses the old x2 drill. still not a bad deal for the 2 3.0ah batteries and the charger.

                        I picked up the 12v pocket driver today. I'm not sure if I'm gonna keep it. Last week I picked up the 12 volt milwaukee one and I love it. it has the hex drive and the ridgid has the drill type. maybe i'll keep both. The ridgid I can use as a drill and the milwaukee I can use it to drive screws.

                          FYI: The new drill kit for $225 consists of: R8411503 drill, with two 3.0 Ah Lithium Ion batteries and charger. Its not bad since it includes those Lithium batteries

                            BTW, the radio weighs a TON
