Ridgid’s Gen5X tools are the new line of permanent magnet motor tools by Ridgid. Ridgid has made some bold statements with power concerning these tools and we have put them to the test. There are few hammer drills on the market with the power Ridgid claims to have, so this gives them shelf space in this market. 780 in-lbs peak torque for the drill puts it currently in the top 3 for torque.
Ridgid’s Gen5X tools use the same batteries as their other Ridgid 18V X4 tools. If you already have those batteries or chargers, this is a good platform to keep building on.
