    Doing a heat pump service rough in today and had to drill a couple pilot holes from the basement out through the rim joist and stucco (very carefully), to locate centers for the hole saw from the outside.

    1/4" hex drive drill bit, 12" long extension, R81030 pivot drill in the stick position on the end of my arm stuck up into the ceiling along between an 8" fresh air intake vent pipe and joist. No room for a conventional drill. Don't know how I would have done it without this handy feature.

    Way to go RIDGID!

    "Good enough" isn't really "good"...

    With anything good and different that they offered, it is a shame that this tool and a few others was available only long enough to not sell enough and be discontinued.

    I love the feeling when I own a tool that makes my life easier.
    We don't have preventative maintenance around here, we have CRISIS MANAGEMENT!
