    Re: R842301 18V Impact? Obselete model?

    CS said NO, and I talked to a female supervisor"head" of the warranty program, who was less than friendly . Ridgid batteries cost more than others , are not as competitive compared to others , [who even sells an 18v , 1.3aH battery anymore except cheap tool lines like HFT]to my other tools and only have a 3 yr warranty. Milwaukee has 5yr. for example. I will not buy anymore Ridgid cordless unless it is in a kit form for that reason.
    Call CS if you want to prove it for your self.

      Wagon Man, the R842301 18 volt impact is an excellent tool. Best impact that Ridgid makes, IMO. Performance is best out of all of them.

      And no, a separately purchased battery is not registerable for the LLSA. It only has a 3-year warranty applicable to it.

        Thanks! Good to know. Looks like I'm all settled on drills and impact now

          I'll bet the Service Centers really love dealing with that Catch 22 scenario.

            Yep, the word is that they will only warrant batteries that are purchased as part of a combo kit, not the individual batteries purchases.
