Due to the price drop to $80, 50% off, this is a repost of gunner249's post of 7/14 in Hot Deals:
https://slickdeals.net/f/13217779-ridgid-18-volt-octane-lithium-ion-cordless-brushless-1-2-in-hammer-drill-kit-with-octane-3-0-battery-charger-and-bag-112?v=1

This in turn was a repost of RTB001's post of 6/21 in Hot Deals:
https://slickdeals.net/f/13164442-bm-ymmv-home-depot-ridgid-octane-18v-brushless-hammer-drill-kit-on-clearance-128?v=1&src=SiteSearch

Gunner249 posted the price drop from retail of $159 to $112.- It has now dropped to $80. These are usually located in the endcaps, but an ASM found mine in an overhead. The endcaps may still show $112 - ask a passing associate to scan it.

Reading the Home Depot reviews for this item, a few have complained that the clutch slips at full speed or the chuck releases. Since if purchased at HD, this is LSA eligible (mark downs have not affected LSA in the past) I feel that Ridgid will honor future repairs (the drill will likely be replaced with a refurb.) I'll test mine tomorrow.

Since the store inventory has been removed from the HD web page for the Hammer Drill, you will need the SKU - 1003899453 (corrected per Cracktower) and ask Customer Service to check the Point of Sale terminal (NOT the web page) for inventory and location.

Thanks to andrew.j.ives & FaithfulName940 for alerting me to the price drop.

For those in the north NJ area, there are 11 remaining at the Passaic NJ store. (They were in an overhead bin, still boxed in the carton.)

FWIW, the stores are selling this item instead:

My vote is the newer model with the possible clutch issue - more torque (1300 in lbs vs 700 in lbs) and the newer 3 AH OCTANE battery (vs 2 - 2 AH batteries - non-OCTANE)

I called my local store to check inventory and prices. The listed SKU can't be searched at the POC terminals; it is an internet sku rather than an in-store sku. They are able to search for the item via the UPC, which is 648846072883. Hope that helps!

I have this and the gen 5 brushless drill, and this thing is a beast. I end up using the older one more often because it is smaller and lighter, but the octane model is great when you need the power.

I saw this is Garner, NC today at this price. There was 1 left and decided not to buy it since I have the smaller non-octane version and it works fine for my needs.

Didn't find this at my store.
I did find a decent deal on the Makita LXT brushless 18v hammer drill with 3ah battery for $99 on clearance. I already had the previous clearance price for the Ridgid Octane hammer drill kit for $112. I'll see which one I keep..

I understand that was your experience, but the SKU I listed is the correct store sku and can be searched via the POC terminal - I observed this in the store I was in. Perhaps other stores have different procedures,. My store needed a SKU to search the POS term,and could not use the internet # or model #, Regardless, glad you fond it.
