Ridgid's 18-Volt Compact Lithium-Ion Drill arrives for Review

ridgid_compact_drill.jpgThe guys at Ridgid just set us up with one of their new Compact Lithium-Ion drills so we can review it. We got it out of the box and gave it a quick heft and there's no doubt about the 'compact' part. In fact, it feels a whole lot lighter than our 14.4-Volt Makita, but it's got 18-Volt power. We've got a few projects going on this week and weekend so we're going to put the drill right to work and see how it does. Stay tuned.

Also, we're still trying to get our heads around C.H. Hanson's Pivot Square and we just got a sample of the new Ace Sensations paint, so you can look forward to those reviews as well.

Ridgid's Compact Drill is available at Home Depot

Let us know how this compares to Makitas little 18v compact drill. I am in the market for a new set of tools- and the Rigid Free Lifetime warrenty on this and Batteries is a great deal. But Rigid is a newer brand than Makita (and DeWalt missed the 18v Lith-Ion market).
