  • THE LIST of HEAVENLY CORDLESS TOOLS

    Da da da daaaaaaaaaaaaa!

    I now give you.....THE LIST of HEAVENLY CORDLESS TOOLS:
    1. Ridgid Garage/Shop/Jobside RADIO-slash-CD player. 'Big unit, charger capability, can also work on 18/24 volt batteries (corded/cordless). Nuf said (but, the oldest post that I see about this is from 4 years ago - holy Pete, Ridgid!!!! What's the freakin' delay - can't you tell that you have a huge market out there that's drooling for this item?!?!).
    2. MaxSelect 18/24 volt weedwhacker. (this item might be nice to have a shaft setup similar to other manufacturer's [Ryobi] so that you can use different attachments [blower, tiller, edger, etc.]).
    3. MaxSelect 18/24 volt hedgetrimmer.
    4. MaxSelect 18/24 volt cordless chainsaw (similar to the Makita or B&D ones, but slightly longer, with a 10 to 14 inch bar length - the Ryobi one has an appealing design).
    5. MaxSelect 18/24 volt hand-held dustbuster-style vacuum.
    6. MaxSelect 18/24 volt small & portable AM/FM radio.
    7. Hanger attachments (similar to the Ryobi hangers which clip in to the spot where the battery would be on the tool). Something so we can hang our tools on the pegboard in our shops - and display them proudly, rather than having them bang around in a big toolbox drawer.
    8. AC/DC power adapter system, to convert 18/24 volt MaxSelect battery operated units, to corded power. (I know that this is one thing that people are especially ho-hum about, but people like myself, who only buy cordless tools due to their convenience, would appreciate this and would definitely buy it, due to always having the availability of corded power when needed for a particularly tough and/or long task).
    9. Mini-impact driver (lithium-ion possibly, unknown voltage, similar to the Bosch pocket driver [PS20, I think?]).
    10. A MaxSelect 18/24 volt version of the flashlight - one that can be bought separately, and not part of a kit. Also, it might be advantageous to do this with a high-output high-wattage LED bulb, and set it up more like a contractor's floor light flood-light. That'd be sweeeeeeeet.
    11. Battery storage case for 18/24 volt batteries. To securely hold between 2 to 5 batteries (of any type/size), and to possibly be sold in a small combo with:
    12. Ridgid universal charger - to charge all types (NiCad and LI), and all voltages (9.6 up to 24 volts), dual port. And for this, set it up with some sort of a little beeper tone that goes off for a second or two once your battery is done charging to let you know (set up to beep when the LED initially goes on steady green once the charge cycle is done).
    13. MaxSelect 18/24 volt metal/tin snips/cutter.
    14. MaxSelect 18/24 volt winch/come-along, similar to the Warn PullzAll tool.
    15. Some sort of filter bags that will work on the 6 gallon Wet/Dry vacs that have been flying off the shelves at HD. The hose intake is at the top, rather than on the front of the barrel, so normal shopvac bags won't work - it needs something that works in conjunction with the filter somehow.
    16. MaxSelect 18/24 volt cordless fan and/or air filtration/circulation unit (with Hepa filter, of course, etc., etc.).
    17. MaxSelect 18/24 volt zipsaw/dremel tool/rotary cutter.
    18. Maybe even a small little MaxSelect 18/24 volt mouse sander, or a 1/4" sheet sanded (it might be overkill to use a 24 XLi battery on a little sander, but having the power versatility might be useful for some people).
    19. A MaxSelect 18/24 volt compressor/inflator (similar to the Ryobi P730). It might not necessarily be useful for using it on larger framing jobs with a pneumatic nailer, but having a small compressor available to you is very handy - I'd get one to use for cleanup in my garage, inflating the kids' bike tires, etc.).
    20. A myriad of other cordless MaxSelect 18/24 volt tools, to catch up with, and match, that which other companies such as DeWalt and Ryobi currently have on the market. For example: cutoff tool, left and right handed versions of the circular saw, a flurescent tube worklight version of a flashlight, cordless nailer (brad/finish/framing/roofing), rotary laser level system, etc.
    21. Maybe a 48 volt (2 x 24 volt LI battery packs) battery operated lawnmower - down the line, once the preceeding stuff has been taken care of. Many that are coming out right now are this voltage and run very well (ie - Neuton, B&D, Cub Cadet, etc.).
    Cheers. CanuckSARTech.

        So basically make every single tool every single manufacturer makes, plus a few more

        Of all those one of the most handy is actually the most simple. The flourescent cordless lamp. It's the one tool that I use for EVERYTHING. I still don't understand why only Dewalt and Makita make them. These should be standard on all kits. They are far more usefull than the standard flaslight.

          Vel

          They sure are

          Maybe this is where BrightStar, Coleman and Streamlight need to work together and make a really super one. The problem would be yet another battery and charger unless they could rig it up so it could use several types of popular power tool batteries, and yes that could be done. That's if companies could ever all get along and work together on this.

            Yeah, the cordless fluorescent work light is badly needed.

            Between that and the radio/charger unit, those are the two items which caused me some in depth thinking when I was deciding which tool manufacturer to go with. Weighing everything in, I only went with Ridgid due to the LSA. Now that I did, I can say I made the right choice, as my Ridgid tools are a pleasure to use. But the simple fact that Ridgid does not have either a radio or a cordless 18V fluorescent work light almost led to me choosing another manufacturer (DeWalt). I've stilll been debating whether or not I should buy just those tools from DeWalt.

            And, like others have said, I still can't stop shaking my head over the fact that these items are still not being made/sold by Ridgid, yet we have a friggen 18V cordless caulking gun. A caulking gun?!!?! Guys, let's get a move on.

              Re: THE LIST of HEAVENLY CORDLESS TOOLS

              I hate to say it, 'cuz I'm a loyal Ridgid power tools user (but not cordless)... you ought to just invest in the Ryobi One+ system. About 80% of that big list already exists... but made by Ryobi (same parent company, however.. TTI).

              - Cordless weedwhacker. This actually exists for the One + line, but is only available in the UK, for some stupid reason.
              - Cordless hedgetrimmer. One+
              - Cordless chainsaw. One +
              - Cordless dustbuster-style vacuum. One + (sucks though... pun!)
              - Small & portable FM radio. One +
              - Hanger attachments (similar to the Ryobi hangers which clip in to the spot where the battery would be on the tool). Unfortunately, don't come in the combo kits. But one comes with every individual tool, and they're available separately.
              - Mini-impact driver One + has a compact impact driver.
              - Cordless fan. One + (love this item)
              - Cordless zipsaw/dremel tool/rotary cutter. One +
              - Small mouse sander. One +
              - Cordless compressor/inflator (similar to the Ryobi P730).
              - Cordless cutoff tool. One+ angle grinder.
              - Cordless fluourescent tube worklight version of a flashlight. One +, but only in UK. It's a Craftsman item here in the US... lame.
              - Cordless nailer (brad/finish/framing/roofing). One +, but apparently isn't great.

              Not to mention the other One+ items that you didn't list:
              - Close quarters 90 degree drill
              - Planer
              - Laminate trimmer
              - Blower
              - Pruner
              ...and on and on

              I honestly wanted and would have preferred to get the Ridgid line of cordless tools, but need the flexibility of all the others available in the One+ line. I currently have about 22 of the Ryobi line and use them for all manner of household work, renovation, woodworking, construction, and so on. While Ridgid has 5 different drills available, they don't have a compact chainsaw.. or planer.. They do, however (and oddly enough) have a caulk gun!!

              At this point, if Ridgid released a similar line, I'm not sure I'd switch (simply for money reasons), but if they had had a line developing when I first needed to start the cordless tool collection, I defintiely would've gone orange.

              Learn the lesson from Ryobi: There IS a market for all manner of cordless tools. Appease your user base, and come out with better, nicer, more powerful tools for the Rigdid cordless line.

                Re: THE LIST of HEAVENLY CORDLESS TOOLS

                I have both the Makita flourescent and the Dewalt directional.

                I have tried to work with the flourescent on many occasions.

                As far as space lighting deffinately a plus item,Under house,attic,great for camping(short use)

                For some reason the directional gets all the work,under counter,auto machanical and distance scanning.

                I don't know how much I would use a flourescent.

                Although they would be easy to design.I would hope they would make it fully adjustable while freestanding.

                I would like to add that Dewalts wrapping neck has come in handy on many occaisions in the feild.

                  To Ridgid,

                  If you can design a cordless rotary hammer,it only has to drill concrete holes up to 1/2",for industrial use.I would certainly use with enthusiasm.

                  I need one bad.

                  When working on multi-level high rises it would be very advantages as you can carry only so much up with you in the elevator.

                  This tool is the last one I need before I lose my cords.(unless I need lights)

                    Re: THE LIST of HEAVENLY CORDLESS TOOLS

                    dittos regarding the dewalt directional. It can't be beat for working on toilet tanks and under sinks.
                    My other favorite cordless is the Dewalt wet vac. I do lot's of irrigation repairs and it is fabulous not only for getting the water out of the hole but also the mud and stuff that has gotten into the broken pipe. (Not to mention all of the water out of a toilet before a change out or reset.

                        I really hate when someone with a hidden agenda comes on to the forum and just advertises their product...
                        2 posts in 1 day about a product make in Chicago by a new member who lists his job as VP and happens to be from... Chicago...
                        Gee - interesting...

                        As for the tool, looks like it would be heavy, clunky and awkward to use... - For me, I will stick to the cordless cutters I use now... Been working for me well enough for years...

                            I've read many posts requesting many, if not all, of the same cordless products for a while. I really think the lawnmower would be great if it were self propelled, however, that would take a more voltage or compromise runtime. If the lawnmower was automated and had a docking station, you wouldn't need a high runtime because it could mow twice a day if need be.

                            There is a market for these items and RIDGID should listen, then, I will buy stock in their parent company, makes lots of money and everyone is happy.

                              Wow, a list price of $700!! That price is way out there in outer space.

                              You can get the Ultra Cut for about $120 : http://www.superiortool.com/UltraCut/FAQs.htm Click on "Product Demo" and you can see it in action. I'm not a plumbing contractor so I don't know how it'd stand up to heavy abuse, but it works great for me, I use it occasionally on remodel projects.
