  41. Diane W says:

  42. Patricia C says:

    My husband would use the drill for home-improvement projects and I would listen to the radio in every corner of our yard while doing yard work

  43. John Leite says:

    I would use the tools to build a deck in my back yard and to replace my cabinet doors and drawers.

  44. Jack says:

    Would use the kit during my basement renovation, tunes and tools together…

  45. Steve says:

    I would use the RIDGID 18-Volt X4 Hyper Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit on numerous aspects on home DIY projects, especially for finishing my basement which I am doing now. The radio would give me some nice tunes to listen to while working.

  46. BobboMax says:

    I’m a professional handyman, so I’d use these tools daily for dozens of tasks. Impact drivers are addictive- lots of driving force for screws in a small, ergonomic package with little recoil- as is, they’re great for newbies, and once you really learn how to use them, they’re very, very controllable, more so than the usual torque-control drill-driver. I have two, cuz I don’t ever want to be without one. Hammer drills are for heavier work- large holes (Forstners, hole saws)and drilling concrete, plus any bit that doesn’t have a 1/4″ hex drive. Also mixing paint and drywall mud.

    Li-ion batteries are a must for any modern cordless tool- more stored power per pound and size, don’t discharge in your toolbox like NiCad, so they’re ready when you need them. And Ridgid’s lifetime battery deal means you don’t have to worry about them going bad.

    The radio would make life on the job more pleasant- we can all use that.

    And, no, I don’t work for the BigOrangeBox- at the moment,I have Makitas that I really like, but when they die, I’m going for Ridgid.

    • BobboMax says:

      PS- the Ridgid has its light down on the battery housing, so it’s not shadowed by the body of the driver like my Makitas and the 20 min recharge time for the Li-ion batteries is another plus.

  47. Tabitha P. says:

    My bf is a carpenter so he’d use this for everything related to house building/remodeling!

  48. SamKnisely says:

    I would use it on fix-up projects on our first house that we are purchasing. Thank you.

  49. Kyl Neusch says:

    when remodeling soon

  50. Jeff Carter says:

    Just finished my basement reno and my current drill’s battery doesn’t hold much of a charge anymore. The Rigid line has many fine tools and a new cordless drill is much needed. I’m sure I could find some great uses for the impact driver. Thanks for the giveaway.

  51. steve says:

    Would be very helpful for remodeling my basement, and rebuilding my deck.

  52. Erik says:

    I would use them for home improvement projects.

  53. Greg says:

    I would redo my deck.

  54. This would be great. My Makita battery is dead.

  55. Karen Gonyea says:

    For our upcoming kitchen remodel :)

  56. Todd Martens says:

    This kit would come in handy in multiple ways. My wife just talked me into installing tile in our main bathroom. There are always projects that need to be done around the house and my wife has a way of finding them. I also do handyman work on the side when I’m not at my regular job (HVAC technician).

  61. Micah says:

    Oh boy, Lemme I have a half acre that I maintain, and it would be quite handy to have a reliable set of these for the many projects that I can get myself into on a daily basis…
    Mainly building,
    Fencing, raised garden beds, chicken coops, portable pins, framing up the greenhouse, raised platform blinds,

    Not to mention the automotive uses I normally go through doing equipment maintenance.
