Mac, Don't doubt your experience with the Ridgid tools you got and also don't think the 175 5 star reviews on the Ridgid impact are all fake. Guess I'll find out.
I've abused the living snot out of two Ridgid aka Emerson shop vacs...they basics pay someone else to make their stuff...and Home Depot has excellent customer service...just took my 13/16 Husky racheting box wrench in and they just handed me another. I think I've owned a couple of Rigid corded drills over the years...both died very very quickly...both were I have to get this job done for a customer so I'm buying a tool purchase.
You'll probably be just fine!
