  • 14.4V Impact Bit/Socket Set

    All, I remember seeing a thread about what bit/socket set everyone likes for the Ridgid Impact Driver, but can't seem to find it. Could I get some recommendations for it. Any help would be appreciated. With all the high recommendations for the impact driver, I figure I better start using the one that has been sitting in the closet for 6 months now.

    I just use the same ones that I had been using in my drill drivers, no problems yet

      Given that some of the Impact Drivers coming out can achieve (claimed) torques of 1440 In/Lb (= 120 Ft/Lb), it might not be a bad idea to use regular impact sockets just as you would on an air impact gun.

      I know that Snap-On and others will not replace regular sockets that have been damaged if they were ever used on air impact guns, I don't see why they would treat the electric (corded or cordless) any differently.

        Thats a good point Bob, have you found any impact grade adapters that go from hex shank to 3/8 or 1/2? I have been using the regular drill adapters that say 'not for impact use' but I have yet to twist one off

          Humm, hex to 3/8 or 1/2" drive adapters in impact grade, can't say as I have seen those but they are probably out there. Will have to keep an eye out for them.

          Just found these from Snap-On, but they are HEX x 1/4" drive

          As always they are premium price... $12.85 !!!

          But if Snap-On makes them somebody else does too.

            I have, first time I used the adapter with my 14.4 impact as a matter of fact. I'll bet you'll never guess in a million years where I purchased the adapter set at.
