    It’s amazing that Ridgid does so well yet there are those here that call them big boxx budget brand???? I see the Makitas latest release was not in the line up. Did Bosch really come in 8th????

    I think Ridgid has stepped up their game in recent years..going from store brand to a serious competitor. Personally, I can’t say I’m surprised at where the Bosch ranked. My business partner has that model and I really don’t care for it. Sure its comfortable, but it is SLOW compared to my Makita (older model).

    What IS surprising is that they call these the “best” and still include Kobalt and Ryobi…

    They are still a big box budget brand, I don’t think this changed anything. Looks like they’ve been taking notes from their work on the Milwaukee line up though, nice to see a good quality cheaper tool out there.

    The budget brand is TTIs Ryobi brand.

    Thanks for posting the test/review.

    I think the heat tests are a good indicator of a tool’s potential lifespan. The Bosch did very well in that area.

    It’s only right the tools that had the most RPMs and impacts got hotter because both of those actions cause friction and heat.

    It’s interesting that Bosch and, Milwaukee are very close to the same. Sometimes torque is not your friend.

    I have owned a lot of impacts over the years, spanning a lot of the brands. The only one that ever overheated and failed was my old Ridgid 18v. I think it was the first one they came out with. We actually burned it up twice. With the warranty, they did replace it both times though.

    wow ridgid is certainly coming up in the world. I am also surprised at the bosch ranking. I have that drill and it is great to use.

    I guess I am not surprised to see DeWalt high up there, but to see the Bosch so low is strange. Good to see Ridgid with a quality tool.

    Bosch came last overall actually. Just like the recip saw shoot out. It seems like more and more Bosch is coming in last in all the cordless shootouts. The redeeming thing they have that these test don’t test is longevity. Which I am sure Bosch would be in the top bit imo that doesn’t make up for it. I am getting out of the Bosch line more and more.

    I was just as surprised as the rest of you by rigid and Bosch’s standing in these tests. Is anyone out there giving a second opinion?

    I am kinda surprised, but surprised more that bosch isn’t coming out with brushless and more powerful tools to compete against these other manufacturers,

    I see my brand is at the top agin Dewalt . They put the research into there tools with R&D in my opinion .

    Totally agree if Bosch doesn’t get in gear fast they will be behind the 8 ball . It’s Red and yellow for me now .

    Always willing to learn .

    Oh yes,, thanks big A i just relooked at that and the tools have 2 rankings. I also find it very interesting that TTI have 4 tools in the test??? Why 2 different Ridgid impacts? Why did they not use Makitas most powerful and latest release?? I truly think these shootouts are a lot like pro wrestling.
