Hi, first post. Please be nice!

Found this Ridgid 3/8" VSR corded drill for $32.06 at Home Depot.
Regularly it is priced between $60-$90. Very good reviews.

SKU: 387-985
Model number: Ridgid R7001
7.5 Amps
magnetic bit holder
keyless chuck
carrying case
lock on button
Ridgid's lifetime warranty

At the Elizabeth, NJ store (#6905), they had about 15 left on the clearance table.

home depot website has a similar drill on their website. The one on the website has a clip on top of the drill. This drill has the magnetic bit holder.

Different models. The one online is out of stock everywhere I can see. Also it isn't on the Ridgid website.

The R7001 is on the Ridgid website but I can't find it on the HD site. Does show on Amazon.

Good price for a Ridgid drill. If I needed it and could find it local I would buy it. In six weeks this will be a penny...if the HD pricing theory holds true.

One thing I noticed is that your sales tax is so low, almost negligible 3.5%! TU and will check out my local store tomorrow.

If you own a Kreg Jig, THIS is the kind of drill you want to use. The higher rpm makes the pocket holes cleaner, faster, and easier.
If you don't have a Kreg Jig, look into getting one for all your non-heirloom wood projects.

This is not a good choice for driving screws, though. Cordless drills are much better at that.

Just over $30 is what this drill goes for refurbished, without the lifetime service agreement.

Per online inventory checker (using op's sku) several stores near me have 1-2, with the exception of one store which has 12. With both model numbers being discussed having the same SKU, maybe this is an indication the store with 12 has some of the R7001 units.

I have this drill, the one with magnetic holder on top, not the one in the link. It is pretty powerful. I think I paid like $60 for it. One thing to remember that in order to get lifetime warranty, you HAVE TO SEND IN REGISTRATION.

$32 for this drill with lifetime warranty is really a slick deal!

It has a funny trigger. There is a range of variable speed, and then it just goes full bore the last 1/4 of the trigger travel. Takes getting used to from Craftsman.

I use it to drive screws, not the best, but will do when the cordless has died, and both batteries need charging.

In the past when I've purchased Ridgid corded products like sawzalls, and drills, I haven't been able to find the model number either on Ridgid's or Homedepot's site. There would be a similiar model but the model I purchased would have a higher amp rating then the similiar model.

I looked at 2 stores on my way home today, all sell for $59 normal price. No dice. Another failed YMMV for me.

I went to a store that showed 3 in stock. The model number matched OP's but the item scanned at the full price. I thought the reduced price might have been tied to a model number change, R7001 to R7011, but that does not appear to be the case. Experienced the same with the Rigid planer deal.
