Ridgid is Built to LAST!!!
June 19, 2012
 I work in the service and construction, residential and commercial HVAC industry on multiple job sites. These tools have held up to the tests. Oh! Don’t forget to register your purchase, THE LIFETIME WARRANTY IS FOR REAL! About two years after another set of Ridgid power tools I purchased I sent the batteries and charger in and received two new batteries and charger, FREE!!! Oh I sold that set to a co-worker who could not afford new but needed a dependable set of tools. I highly recommend these tools!

Well pleased so far.

 Have used the drill, circular saw, and light so far with excellent results. Have owned them for about 2 months so I cannot comment on long term reliability. Battery holds good charge. All tools have great power for their size.

Pretty Happy
May 18, 2012
from Wisconsin Rapids, WI, USA
I had a Ryobi combo kit which I was not too happy with. The batteries didn’t last, so I was going to upgrade to the Ryobi lithium ion batteries & 5 port charger. After the sticker shock of this upgrade, I figured I would upgrade to one of the top of the line combos (DeWalt, Milwaukee, or Makita). I stumbled across Ridgid & noticed the Lifetime waranty on the batteries. I read reviews & they seemed to be as good as any of the others, so I bought the combo pack. Right away I was impressed with how sturdy each tool felt. I am pretty much a weekend warrior, so this set may be overkill for me. But so far I have been impressed with how long the batteries last on one charge.

The Best!
June 17, 2011
These are the best! much better than the older X3 series tools. The tools are well balanced, not to heavy nor to light, powerful, intuitive, and very well constructed from what I can tell so far. The chuck-less sleeve on the hammer drill is made of metal which impressed me since many of the manufacturers use plastic for this. Also the metal on the circular saw is made out of magnesium but is more of a gunmetal color. Very cool. The batteries have an led gauge on them so you will know if they are running low and they charge very quickly. They are also smaller and lighter than the L-ion batteries used on the X3.

Updated Review – New batteries – New Life to the tools
March 23, 2012
In my previous review I commented on how the batteries were cutting out on everything except for the lightest cuts. Those were the X3 batteries. I was able to get the new X4 batteries and new style charger and WOW! What a difference. The new batteries were unstoppable. Now, that is what I wanted. The tools are still the X3 versions, but with the X4 batteries it’s like I have a whole new kit.
