Does anyone know if Ridgid will be coming out with 18v lithium tool package? I know there is no mention to this on their website. I also watched the builder's show video and nothing was mentioned. I think the 18v lithium package would be the best compromise between weight and power. I spoke to Makita and the rep told me they have no interest of offering 24v lithium tools in the short term. They said their 18v lithium tools are the perfect mix for their contractors and I would totally agree. I handled a few of the Ridgid 24v XLI tools and they seem to bulky and heavy for everyday use. Yes, the 24v power is great, but pickup a Makita tool and they feel just about perfect. I can't image the new Impact Driver with a big 24V battery. Hopefully, they will be coming out with a 18v lithium line.
No announcement yet.
