The Rigid 18v drill was a replacement unit for my Dewalt 18 volt that I had for the previous 11 years. The yellow dewalt was a great drill until the two battery units succumbed to age.
During a short trip to the Home Depot I picked up the boxed 18v Rigid drill. This drill looked the part of a go anywhere great all around tool.
As a replacement to an old trusty standby so far it is doing quite well. I have used it to build several items around the house so far, it has a charge time of about 4 hours for on off use. Recharge with the supplied charger takes approx. 45 mins.
So make sure that you pick up an extra battery or be prepared for a nice break at the 4 hour timeslot. The only downside is that the drill does dump energy over a weeks timeperiod to the point that we had to recharge before using after leaving it with a full charge.
