It’s been a Ridgid kind of week!

Ridgid 18V Drill Review, #Sponsored #TeamRIDGID

Last week I started building a new dining table.  Unfortunately the staining process has held up completing this project.  Luckily I had a few other projects to keep me busy using my new Ridgid 18V Lithium-Ion Compact Dril/Driver*This is a sponsored post I may have received payment or product however all opinions are my own.

I have to gush over this drill.  Last month when I was working on my living room makeover my old drill finally died, no big loss there as I never liked that drill.  When Ridgid heard I was down a drill they sent their 18V compact drill to me.  I absolutely love this drill!  My old drill was so heavy I couldn’t stand to use it.  In addition to being far too heavy the engineering of my old drill made removing the battery almost impossible for me.  My new Ridgid drill is so lightweight I can work for hours using this without a second thought.  The handle fits comfortably in my hand and the grip pad makes it effortless to hold on to.  The battery is extremely easy to remove too.  This drill has a built in battery indicator to let you know how much power is left in the battery before you need to charge it.  It also has a built in light to make using a breeze, especially in spots without a lot of light to begin with.

I am so impressed with this drill there is nothing I can think of to improve it, it’s that perfect in my opinion!  If you follow me on social media you may recall I’ve been helping my neighbor the last few weeks update her kitchen.  She too is very impressed with my new drill, she’s considering purchasing one of her own!

Here you can see the battery indicator.
