Have to say that this is a helluva deal. It's currently $129 at HD. And before all of the LSA-eligibility debates start, yes, it's eligible as a Factory blemished.

Just a few points of interest. On the plus side to those that have Octane tools/batteries this drill is exactly the same as the Octane model. Just check the battery contacts and you will see the extra contacts that the drill requires to comunitate with the battery for power demands. Ridgid released it right before they released the octane version so everything was in place tool wise. Also I currently have 3 factory blem tools and 4 blem accessories all purchased from Direct Tools in the last 4 months. All qualified for LSA! Ridgid is slow to approve LSA so keep up on the approval process. No need to ever mail in your recept. At the end of registration there is an option to upload your receipt. Even after doing that it will still claim that action is required and they don't have a receipt. Just keep up with it and call or email and it will eventually get approved without much drama. Only exception to LSA is batteries not purchased as a kit either with tool or with charger in other words bare batteries are not eligible for LSA. Any Orange Ridgid product bought from any place other than HD or DTFO is not eligible for the LSA period! Check you drill thoroughly when you get it. This model has some known issues with the chuck and clutch/brake/drive assembly when set on HIGH. Just do a search and you will see. Be on the lookout for grinding like sounds when letting off the trigger abruptly (not the minor ones most hammer drills seem to make) and the brake stopping so quickly the rotation of the chuck that it unlocks itself and loosens the chuck to the point that the bit falls out! Doesn't matter how many clicks you tighten down the chuck. I've also had a few times where the bit got stuck in the chuck. I would suggest attaching a larger bit and cycling the drill on and off with some load for 15 min or so at the least. Some will break in and improve others will not. Took me 5 exchanges to get a good one! When you do get a good one it's a beast and even at full price represents a fantastic value. At $32 shipped it's a steal.

This also seems like a good deal, not as hot? Not brushless... https://www.directtoolsoutlet.com.../ZRR86034B

Are factory blemished tools eligible for LSA? Either way it is a great deal.

They're supposed to be, yes.
This is based from conversation in previous threads and as mentioned by @Jyoss above.
