AEG Fusion 18V Heavy Duty High Torque Hammer Drill has 140Nm (1239 in-lbs) Torque

Today we have some very interesting news as AEG which is what Ridgid is called outside the USA, has come out with a new high torque brushless hammer drill under the Fusion name just like their Reciprocating saw that was recently spotted.

I haven’t been following AEG closely since I live in the USA but Ridgid has always been a step behind top pro brands when it comes to torque numbers for their high torque drills but with the new Fusion model, they not only compete with the pro brands in terms of torque but even surpass it with 140 Nm of torque which translates to 1239 in-lbs of torque. That’s 39 more in-lbs of torque than Ridgid’s sister brand Milwaukee Gen 2 M18 Fuel hammer drill which has 1200 in-lbs torque.

Looking at it’s feature set, it looks to be packing lots of features with a 24 torque settings clutch collar with premium separate mode collar, multi position side handle which is now longer because of the added torque, LED light, belt clip, and metal 1/2″ chuck which I would assume ratchets. I also see that the grip light button is missing which further convinces me that AEG/Ridgid is ditching that feature on newer cordless tools. It also doesn’t have the LED ring on the chuck itself like the original brushed GEN5X hammer drill.

This AEG Fusion hammer drill was spotted in the AEG Australia website by Joshua B. and Glenn. Big thanks to you guys for spotting this!

I certainly hope we get this as Ridgid soon. Who knows maybe it’ll come out when the Hyper Octane 6.0 and 9.0 batteries come. As for the grip light, it wouldn’t surprise me if it shows up on Ridgid’sā€‹ version. I’ve noticed that some AEG tools have it while some don’t. If I recall correctly the only newish Ridgid tools without the grip light are the new brushless combo kit for those on a budget. Also the AEG drywall screwdriver doesn’t have it but again several other AEG tools don’t. Both the Ridgid’s and AEG’s new brushless reciprocating saws have… Read more »
