This RIDGID cordless impact wrench will make you want to cancel your AAA membership?

The RIDGID impact wrench was one tool that had me super excited. I personally love to ride in style, but that has come at a cost. My car rides on 20" rims and I have low-profile tires and already this year I've had 3 flat tires. I know bummer!

Want to know whats worse than that? Trying to change a flat on the side of the road with a regular ole jack! So when this baby showed up on my door I was soooooooooo excited, and it works like a charm!


The box comes packed with the RIDIGD 18-Volt GEN5X Cordless Brushless 1/2 in. Impact Wrench and a belt clip.


The RIDGID Impact wrench is super comfortable in my hands and the weight of it wasn't bad to handle when changing out the car tire. After holding it for a little while it did feel a little top heavy. I would imagine if you used a 5AH battery, it would balance it out, but that would also increase the weight a little bit. All depends on what you feel comfortable with.
RIDGID's brushless motors offer up to 50% more runtime and longer motor life, which I find very helpful, especially since I plan on keeping this in my car.

Four Modes

The Ridgid Impact Wrench has four modes.The first mode is the auto setting, marked with an A, most likely best used to tighten nuts and bolts.  I noticed that the wrench shuts down automatically once the bolt is secure meaning no stripped nuts and bolts. This is a great feature for someone who isn't familiar with performing actions such as changing a tire. Modes 1 and 2 seemed to have a smooth application and I could tell mode three had the real power.

LED light
I also liked the Tri-beam LED lights around the front housing of  the Ridgid Impact wrench. After lighting it up in a dark area, it seemed bright enough to light up a dark work area and eliminate shadows.
