INTRODUCTION
This product has many features for making its use more pleasant and enjoyable. Safety, performance, and dependability
have been given top priority in the design of this product making it easy to maintain and operate.
WARNING:
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals
known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure
to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust
masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
WARNING!
READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may
result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal
injury.

WORK AREA
TOOL USE AND CARE
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres,
such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases,
or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the
dust or fumes.
Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding
the work by hand or against your body is unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your
application. The correct tool will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it is designed.
Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. A
tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous
and must be repaired.
Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the
switch in the locked or off position before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the
risk of starting the tool accidentally.
Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from
other metal objects like: paper clips, coins, keys, nails,
screws, or other small metal objects that can make
a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting
the battery terminals together may cause sparks, burns,
or a fire.
Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting
edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, and any other condition that may
affect the tool’s operation. If damaged, have the tool
serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by
poorly maintained tools.
Use only accessories that are recommended by the
manufacturer for your model. Accessories that may be
suitable for one tool may create a risk of injury when used
on another tool.
Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free from
oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when cleaning.
Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, or any strong solvents to clean your tool.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of loss of control
and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a
separate battery pack must be recharged only with
the specified charger for the battery. A charger that
may be suitable for one type of battery may create a risk
of fire when used with another battery.
Use battery operated tool only with specifically
designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries
may create a risk of fire.
Use battery only with charger listed.

PERSONAL SAFETY
Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common
sense when operating a power tool. Do not use tool
while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol,
or medication. A moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious personal injury.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry.
Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves
away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the
locked or off position before inserting battery pack.
Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or inserting
the battery pack into a tool with the switch on invites
accidents.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning
the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left attached to a
rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
SERVICE
When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement
parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance section
of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or failure to
follow Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of
shock or injury.
Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed by
unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring. Contact with a “live” wire will also
make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock
the operator.
 Do not crush, drop or damage battery pack. Do not
use a battery pack or charger that has been dropped
or received a sharp blow. A damaged battery is subject
to explosion. Properly dispose of a dropped or damaged
battery immediately.
Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can explode in the
presence of a source of ignition, such as a pilot light.
To reduce the risk of serious personal injury, never use
any cordless product in the presence of open flame. An
exploded battery can propel debris and chemicals. If
exposed, flush with water immediately.
Know your power tool. Read operator’s manual
carefully. Learn its applications and limitations, as well
as the specific potential hazards related to this tool.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock,
fire, or serious injury.
Always wear safety glasses with side shields. Everyday
glasses have only impact resistant lenses. They are NOT
safety glasses. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
eye injury.
Do not charge battery tool in a damp or wet location.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock.
For best results, your battery tool should be charged
in a location where the temperature is more than 50°F
but less than 100°F. To reduce the risk of serious personal
injury, do not store outside or in vehicles.
Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if the
operation is dusty. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of serious personal injury.
Under extreme usage or temperature conditions,
battery leakage may occur. If liquid comes in contact
with your skin, wash immediately with soap and water,
then neutralize with lemon juice or vinegar. If liquid
gets into your eyes, flush them with clean water for
at least 10 minutes, then seek immediate medical
attention. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious
personal injury.
Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection during
extended periods of operation. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
Battery tools do not have to be plugged into an
electrical outlet; therefore, they are always in
operating condition. Be aware of possible hazards
when not using your battery tool or when changing
accessories. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
 If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
only by the manufacturer or by an authorized service
center to avoid risk.
Do not place battery tools or their batteries near fire
or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and possibly
injury.
SAFETY RULES FOR CHARGER
 An extension cord should not be used unless
absolutely necessary. Use of improper extension
cord could result in a risk of fire and electric shock. If
extension cord must be used, make sure:
a. That pins on plug of extension cord are the same number, size and shape as those of plug on charger.
b. That extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition; and
c. That wire size is large enough for AC ampere rating of charger as specified below:
Cord Length (Feet) 25'
50'100'

BATTERY PROTECTION FEATURES
APPLICATIONS
RIDGID 18V lithium-ion batteries are designed with features
that protect the lithium-ion cells and maximize battery life.
Under some operating conditions, these built-in features
may cause the battery and the tool it is powering to act
differently from nickel-cadmium batteries.
You may use this product for the purposes listed below:
Drilling in wood
Drilling in ceramics, plastics, fiberglass, and laminates
Drilling in metals
Driving screws
Mixing paint
During some applications, the battery electronics may signal
the battery to shut down, and cause the tool to stop running.
To reset the battery and tool, release the trigger and resume
normal operation.
CAUTION:
NOTE: To prevent further shut down of the battery, avoid
forcing the tool. Switching to a lower speed will also prevent
shut down.
If at any point during the charging process none
of the LEDs are lit, remove the battery pack from
the charger to avoid damaging the product. DO
NOT insert another battery. Return the charger and
battery to your nearest service center for service
or replacement.
If releasing the trigger does not reset the battery and tool,
the battery pack is depleted. If depleted, the battery pack
will begin charging when placed on the lithium ion charger.
CAUTION:
Charge in a well ventilated area. Do not block
charger vents. Keep them clear to allow proper
ventilation.
10
OPERATION
CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
CHARGING A HOT BATTERY PACK
If the battery pack is above normal temperature range, the
red LED will begin flashing and the green LED will be off.
When the battery pack cools down to approximately 150°F
(65°C), the charger will automatically begin fast charge mode.
Lithium-ion batteries deliver fade free power for their entire
run time. 18 volt lithium-ion tools will not gradually lose power
due to decreasing battery charge. Instead, power from the
battery pack will drop from full to zero once the full charge
has been drained from the battery. Once this happens,
recharging of the battery is required.
NOTE: Refer to CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK for
normal recharging of batteries. If the charger does not charge
the battery pack under normal circumstances, return both
the battery pack and charger to your nearest repair center
for electrical check. For the location of your nearest repair
center, please call 1-866-539-1710.
It is not necessary to drain the battery pack completely
before recharging. Lithium-ion battery packs have no
“memory” and can be recharged at any time. It is therefore
possible to charge the battery pack before extended usage even if the battery pack is not completely drained of
charge.
CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
If the battery pack is below normal temperature range, the
red LED will begin flashing and the green LED will be off.
When the battery warms to a temperature of more than 32°F
(0°C), the charger will automatically begin charge mode.
TO CHARGE
A fully discharged battery pack with a temperature between
32°F (0°C) and 150°F (65°C) will charge in about an hour.
 Connect the charger to a power supply.
NOTE:iIf needed, the charger can operate with most
generators and inverters rated at 300 Watts or higher.
 Attach the battery pack to the charger by aligning the
raised ribs on the battery pack with the grooves in the
charger, then slide the battery pack onto the charger. See
Figure 2.
 Do not place the charger in an area of extreme heat or
cold. It will work best at normal room temperature.
 After charging is complete, the continuous green light will
come on.
 The charger will keep the battery pack fully charged if left
on the charger.
COLD WEATHER OPERATION
The lithium-ion battery pack can be used in temperatures
down to -4°F. Put the battery pack on a tool and use the
tool in a light duty application. After about a minute, the pack
will have warmed up and begin operating normally.

INSTALLING BITS
See Figure 11.
 Lock the switch trigger by placing the direction of rotation
selector in the center position.
 Open or close the chuck jaws to a point where the opening
is slightly larger than the bit size you intend to use. Also,
raise the front of the drill slightly to keep the bit from falling
out of the chuck jaws.
Insert the drill bit.
WARNING:
Fig. 10
Make sure to insert the drill bit straight into the
chuck jaws. Do not insert the drill bit into the chuck
jaws at an angle then tighten, as shown in figure 12.
This could cause the drill bit to be thrown from the
drill, resulting in possible serious personal injury or
damage to the chuck.

OPERATION
DRILLING
See Figure 13.
 Check the direction of rotation selector for the correct
setting (forward or reverse).
 Secure the material to be drilled in a vise or with clamps
to keep it from turning as the drill bit rotates.
 Hold the drill firmly and place the bit at the point to be
drilled.
 Depress the switch trigger to start the drill.
 Move the drill bit into the workpiece, applying only enough
pressure to keep the bit cutting. Do not force the drill or
apply side pressure to elongate a hole. Let the tool do
the work.
WARNING:
Be prepared for binding at bit breakthrough. When
these situations occur, drill has a tendency to grab
and kick opposite to the direction of rotation and
could cause loss of control when breaking through
material. If not prepared, this loss of control can
result in possible serious injury.
 When drilling hard, smooth surfaces, use a center punch
to mark the desired hole location. This will prevent the
drill bit from slipping off-center as the hole is started.
 When drilling metals, use a light oil on the drill bit to keep
it from overheating. The oil will prolong the life of the bit
and increase the drilling action.
 If the bit jams in the workpiece or if the drill stalls, stop
the tool immediately. Remove the bit from the workpiece
and determine the reason for jamming.

METAL DRILLING
NOTE: This drill has an electric brake. When the switch
trigger is released, the chuck stops turning. When the brake
is functioning properly, sparks will be visible through the
vent slots on the housing. This is normal and is the action
of the brake.
For maximum performance, use high speed steel bits for
metal or steel drilling.
 Select normal drilling mode.
 Begin drilling at a very low speed to prevent the bit from
slipping off the starting point.
WOOD DRILLING
 Maintain a speed and pressure which allows cutting
without overheating the bit. Applying too much pressure
will:
For maximum performance, use high speed steel bits for
wood drilling.
 Select normal drilling mode.
 Begin drilling at a very low speed to prevent the bit from
slipping off the starting point. Increase the speed as the
drill bit bites into the material.
 When drilling through holes, place a block of wood behind
the workpiece to prevent ragged or splintered edges on
the back side of the hole.
• Overheat the drill;
• Wear the bearings;
• Bend or burn bits; and
• Produce off-center or irregular-shaped holes.
 When drilling large holes in metal, start with a small bit,
then finish with a larger bit. Also, lubricate the bit with oil
to improve drilling action and increase bit life.
