Thought I would bump this thread with a little product review. I mentioned earlier that I bought the Ridgid drill and impact driver set, and I've finally had a chance to play with them a bit. I've been building a wood fence (about 500' of it), and I've put both drills thru their paces. My first impressions are mixed. I like the drill. Plenty of torque and also plenty fast. I really don't like a slow drill. The impact driver is nice, but I think it might be a bit much for just driving screws. I haven't run across a screw so far that the drill wouldn't drive just as well and I'm using 3" deck screws into the posts. I think it will be really nice for driving the lag bolts into the gates tho.
My biggest complaint may be a bit premature, but right now the battery life doesn't seem to be too stellar. My 10 year old Dewalt with NiCad's outlasted it by a long stretch, and I bought the Ridgid because the Dewalt wasn't lasting as long as it used to. Ive got a few more days of fence left, so I'll see if things improve any.
