This was in Arlington, VA. Brickseek showed nothing for my store, even though there were three, so I'm guessing it doesn't capture the clearance items?

Online it says discontinued.
Anyone know why they're being discontinued?
Perhaps, moving more toward the stealth line?

Just checked the specs on this vs. the stealth. This has 2250 inch lbs and the stealth 1200. Maybe a miss-print but if not, this one is way more powerful. I have one one of the older models and it is great for light automotive work. The speed is a little hard to control, but these are multi speed so they should be pretty good. The downside to this deal is no battery. If you don't already have a drill, I would wait for a deal on a combo kit for about $130 and get the whole works with a guarantee on a battery or two.

Google still shows this as $79.99 at HD, until you click through and it shows as discontinued. Amazon has it for $82.99 right now.

I think the stealth is more limited and may not last and somewhat of a gimmick. If oil filled stealth drive is so awesome then other mfrs would have moved there too. The stealth also makes much more of a rotation each impact which means more chance of stripping

Stick with true impact driver like this IMO

The Stealth is an absolute screw driving machine. For driving #6,8,10,12 screws it has better performance than an impact driver.

The stealth is great for high volume installation of screws in an environment where noise levels are important. Because the stealth doesn't have a proper anvil inside it has poor performance for things like long lag screws, concrete anchors, and will not remove torqued down nuts or bolts. For those fasteners you do want an impact.

I'm surprised they're discontinuing it. I bought mine last year, and the big hype was that it had just come out as their new brushless model impact

Ridgid is always making little tweaks and coming out with new models while changing the availability of others. So while its entirely possible that there may no longer be a R86037 brushless impact driver available as a bare tool, rest assured that there will be some brushless impact driver option in their line.

Impulse drive is not a gimmick at all, just a bit more limited in appeal due to cost and performance differences. And other manufacturers have impulse drivers similar to the Ridgid Stealth, including Makita and Milwaukee.

I have this tool. Came in the black Friday 4 pcs limited edition kit for $299 a few months back.

Anyways this tool is a beast. Removes lug nuts from my four vehicles no problem. I just finished rebuilding one car ( Dodge Stealth Rt/TT (3000GT VR4)) and wish I had this for the duration of the build. It saved me so much time tightening and loosening the fmic pipes for fitment tests. Also just moved and it has made putting furniture together a breeze. On its lowest setting it's pretty gentle.

My wife gave me grief when I bought the kit, but even last night she admitted it was super nice and helpful to have as I was putting bookshelves together with it.
