Regardless if you are a professional contractor or DIYer when it comes to drilling and driving you know the frustration that can come from using or rather TRYING to use bad bits or bit accessories. Not to mention the aggravation of searching for the ONE bit you need and happen to be missing to remove a fastener.

If this sounds familiar go ahead and take a look at RIDGID’s new drill and driving sets for you or perhaps a Holiday Stocking Stuffer for the Pro or DIYer in your life. Interested in more gifts for that special Tool Junky in your life, check out the ACC 2013 Holiday Tool Gift Guide.

Torque Zone

RIDGID, like many other companies, have modified their bits to withstand the high torque applied through Impact Drivers, which wreak havoc on traditional bits. With a unique and flexible mid section, the bits twist when the driver engages lessening the initial jerk of the driver.

Unlike some other companies RIDGID has developed proprietary steel developed to withstand high torque applications. Between the Torque Zone engaging and disengaging the bit smoothly which helps prevent stripping and wear, and the Proprietary Steel, RIDGID is extending the life of your bits!



These Bit Sets include all the right bits and they work exceptionally well. Definitely professional grade and at an extremely competitive price. The bits are well made and mate well with fasteners, the black matte finish rubs off quickly, although it does look cool.

I love the Impact Ready Drill bits for pre-drilling split prone material during fastening or even having the option to use your driver for drilling when you don’t have a drill handy or don’t want to use both tools at once.


Overall Impression

Bits and Drill Bits are a thing you don’t think of too often when you’re considering a new tool purchase, but a complete set of bits can be refreshing on the job-site when you change fasteners or a specialty head is used. And as a homeowner having a complete set is pivotal when you take on any project, this is a “tool”, I guess accessory, you will ALWAYS need.

The competitive price of RIDGID products will always be a major factor when considering their tools. High quality and high value! Check out these bits for a great gift this Holiday season or a much needed re-stock of your bit inventory, you won’t be disappointed!
