  • Upcoming Power Tool Product Launch

    Hey Fellow Forum Members,

    In a little more than a week a pretty cool tool, with new technology, will be hitting the market. For fun, we've put together a little countdown. I'd be curious to hear any guesses on what it is in this thread.

    Countdown: http://209.235.210.204/

    All the best,

    WK

    The heavy duty impact wrench that Frankiarmz wants?

      Is 08/22/08 the date the tool will hit the stores or the day RIDGID will tell everyone what it is? I doubt if asking people to play a guessing game will increase the desire to go buy one.

        With the vast resources that TTI now has it could be almost anything. I'm still bugging Milwaukee (it's been over 3 years now) to make a mini version of their 1680 Super Hole Hawg drill, but they just don't think demand would be high enough. Hmmm Bosch, Hitachi, Makita and more think otherwise but their's are micro-mini versions with 3/8" capacity chucks and geared faster than I want. I'm looking for one right in the middle with a 1/2" chuck and VSR. I'm sick of having to pull out a D-handle drill with right angle head attached to it.

        Please see the Dewalt DW124 and think of it only smaller and please, please have a bust key in case of a major jam to prevent


        The sort of subliminal picture to me looks like a new cordless impact driver.

              Fair enough Badger Dave, certainly not a required response. This thread was more me talking to the forum than looking for a marketing campaign. By the couple responses, looks like it will elicit some good discussion. Should be in stores on the 22nd, though I am sure that won't be true everywhere.

                Please do NOT give it away. It will be interesting to see who is the first to find this new tool. Maybe it's the new monster super powerful cordless vac that uses (6) 24 Volt Li-Ion batteries working together. Hmmm OK maybe it's 4 batteries.

                  My guess, an X3 series lith-ion drill that will give me another reason to go buy Lindsey some jewelry so I can justify buying the new drill for me!

                            Great post but do you really think we will ever see such with the name RIDGID on it?

                            How about powering it with this? http://www.everytime.cummins.com/assets/pdf/4087054.pdf

                              Well, I'm hoping it is a heavy duty 1/2 inch impact gun with at least 240 ft lbs of torque. Since I've repeatedly suggested this tool I think it would be a wonderful gesture on the part of Ridgid to send me one. How about giving us a hint? Has this tool been suggested on the Forum?
