ADJUSTING DRILLING MODE
See Figure 8.
To adjust for type of drilling, slide adjustment button on top
of motor housing hammer mode or drilling mode. For your
convenience a hammer symbol and drill bit symbol have
been molded into adjustment button.
I have very limited hammer experience, but I can direct you to this site in which there is a ½ inch hammer review, if you take stock in those things. They did not test the Ridgid but the Metabo it was cloned from was rated second and the Milwaukee was rated second from the bottom. Hope this helps.
Recheck the Milwaukee line, the tool they tested in the tools of the trade was in 2000. I was just looking through their 2005 catalog and they have two newer updated models available. either way I don't think you could go wrong. Ridgid or Milwaukee
