Just make sure you buy from an authorized retailer to get the warranty.

I've driven 6" 3/8" lag bolts with this no problem. Even snapped off a couple. It's not the 700ft lbs of a Milwaukee but it's pretty damn tough.

I've used that warranty twice with my 18v drill. Same problem both times, the Chuck gets stuck in place and won't open.

If you are building a bird house, Ryobi is fine. If you are installing barn steel on walls or a roof, go with Milwaukee.
I've also had good luck with dewalt

Good call on the Ridged. Make sure you register the warranty during the first 90 days. ridged turn down a warranty because I did not register it on time. Home Depot covered it for me.

I always thought Ryobi was junk. I bought the 1/4" impact, and 1/2" drill combo when we bought our new house that we gutted. These tools are way better than the dewalts I always used prior. A lot of contractors in my area use them as well. They are not top of the line by any means but for the average person they are worth way more than they charge for them. I also have their cordless 18gage nailer and after 10,000 plus nails still going strong. One of my favorite tools. The 1/2" impact is new to me but from what I've seen so far it will be great

8 hours a day drilling screws through steel and wood will mean more battery changes than with a Milwaukee. If you only have two batteries then you will be in trouble, if you have four batteries then you will keep up with the Milwaukee.

Built a barn using a milwaukee 1/4 inch for the sheet metal, 2500 screws was nothing for it. Drove the headers on the pole using a milwaukee 1/2" for 5 inch lags. It got hot and leaked some oil but did great. I have a dozen fuel 18v tools and they are all great.

The Rigid warranty itself is good, but you have to kind of register it twice. First online, then have to send in receipt and upc code off box.

I missed the second step on one of my Rigids. Found out after installing E-track in a trailer. About 18 self drilling decking screws in it started to smoke. Bought another bare tool after they said no warranty. Was bummed. Still works, but not as strong.

You would be surprised at their capabilities especially with the bigger capacity batteries. Milwaukee is a better tool hands down but like I said, for the average person Ryobi is a great option.

You may want to look at the fine print.

That is what got me.

When I bought mine, and registered it online, apparently that registered the original standard warranty. To get the lifetime service agreement/warranty, you had to actually send in the upc with a copy of the receipt.

That is what RIGID told me when I tried to get warranty service. They looked up my serial number and my info, and said as I failed to complete registration by sending in upc that I was out of the standard warranty period, and as I never registered for the lifetime, there was nothing they could do for me.

They may have changed it, hopefully they did, because I thought it was bullshit that they offered a lifetime warranty, but then you have to not only register it online, but then send in the upc and receipt within 90 days of purchase, or the lifetime deal is void.

I was rather pissed off and explained that it was shady of such a large company to have a lifetime service agreement listed right on the box, then have hoops to jump through to register for the lifetime after you already registered the tool for the standard warranty. I was told that was their policy and there was nothing they could do for me, and got an apology.

This was about a year ago. I ended up buying a bare tool on ebay for $25 to fix my issues.


Just for shits and giggles, I just logged in and it shows 3 year warrant for all my tools I registered. So, again, hopefully they changed their bs having to register separately for the lifetime.


Copied from RIGIDS SITE...

To accept the RIDGIDŽ Brand Lifetime Service Agreement, you must register your qualifying RIDGIDŽ Brand Hand Held Power Tool, Stationary Power Tool or Pneumatic Tool within 90 days after purchase. Register by logging on to www.ridgid.com/registration. Log into your personal account or, if you do not have one, create an account. Then click ‘Register New Product’. Include all qualifying RIDGID brand product information: complete model and serial numbers for each serialized piece of equipment, including batteries and chargers. If you don’t have access to the internet, enclose a letter with the following information: First name, last name, e-mail, date of birth, phone number, address, city, state, zip code, model number from package, and the model/serial number of all qualifying serialized tool(s), battery(s), and charger(s) if applicable. Then mail the online confirmation print out or the hand written letter with your original receipt (making a photo-copy of your receipt to keep for your records is recommended) to: RIDGIDŽ Service Dept.:LSA, PO Box 1427, Anderson, SC 29622 for processing and approval. Certified Mail is recommended.

When I bought mine, you could not print anything and had to cut the upc from the box, and mail it in with the receipt. This was according to RIGID. Guess they made it at least somewhat easier, but they still have the fine print.

You had me worried. I logged in and checked. They are all listed as Lifetime. Then I went to the emails from when I registered the last one. I vaguely remember for the first ones I had to mail something in but not on the more recent ones. I have about 20 things listed with all the chargers and batteries.

Here's what the email says. Looks like you only have to mail if there is any question about the purchase.
