    I've had bad experiences with a Ridgid regular 18V Li-Ion drill bought for home use, including warranty service issues. On a good note, I have a good Guinea pig for a battery cell rebuild and brush replacement for when my good tools crap out. With that being said, their hand tools are awesome and I'd recommend them to anyone.

    I have an 18v Ridgid that I bought 7 years ago and still going with one new battery change, I also have a brand new 18v Hilti that is a beast and still brand new in the box (got it free from my bro in law), I'm waiting for the Ridgid to croak before I start using the Hilti.

    I like my dewalt drills, I have both the 18V XRP hammer drill and the 18v compact drill. I'd like to try Hilti but just cant bring myself to spending 400 on a drill.

    For those of you who use Dewalt 18 volt in my area Homedepot and Lows are clearing XRP batteries out at $99 for two batteries. Offer is also available on the web.
