Ridgid 18 Volt Compact Lithium-ion Drill R86006 Bare Tool Drill Only
Ridgid R86006 18 Volt Compact Lithium-Ion Drill has everything you would expect from a high-quality tool, and more. As the names implies, the R86006 features a state-of-the art 18-volt lithium-ion power system with a patented slide-in battery pack that is easy to load and lock with one hand. Lithium technology provides at least 2,000 cycles (recharges) per battery, as opposed to most NiCad batteries that only offer 450. Employing a lithium battery significantly reduces the R86006’s weight to only 4.25 pounds. Also impressive is Ridgid’s Lifetime Service Agreement, which gives you free parts, service and batteries for the life of the original tool owner.
Designed for professional contractors, woodworkers and hard-core DIYers, the lightweight R86006 is designed to deliver maximum power and superior durability. This drill includes a high-torque output of 455 inch-pounds of torque, a 24-position clutch for fine-tuning the torque, a variable-speed trigger switch, a two-speed gear train for drilling or driving at low or high speeds, a 1/2-inch single-sleeve chuck for superior gripping power, and an automatic spindle lock for one-handed bit changes. That’s a lot of heavy-duty features.
While the features are great, the R86006 really grabs your attention when you put it to use. This drill is the perfect combination of weight, power and size, and it is ergonomic and comfortable to use as well. For starters, the balance is among the best we’ve seen, and the resilient overmold handle is very easy to grip. Ridgid takes the convenience factor even further by including an on-tool LED worklight and bit storage.
