    CAUTION: Don't by Reco Ridgid from Cummings tool trucks, toolsnow.com, or tools today.

    I very recently purchased a 16volt Lithium ION Drill from these guys. On getting it home I found it to only work for 2-10 seconds before being dead. Charging the battery didn't help. Of course their truck had left town before I could get back to them.
    An e-mail to them hasn't helped, they just gave me Ridgids phone number and claim no responsibility. Called Ridgid and after pushing many buttons, finally got to speak with a real person, who gave me the number to the local Ridgid service agent. Called them, of course they have no batteries in stock and can't tell me when they can get one.

    So I now have a drill suitable for a boat anchor.

    Buy Dewalt!

    I think this one has played itself out.

    I think canucksartech is on to something. He could have even got the tool truck wrong, for all we know it might have been an ice cream truck. (sadly no sarcasm is intended here i really do think it is possible!)

    Has anyone noticed kiwi hasn't defended his claims and were still arguing about them as if they were for real?

    I think what Tinmack is pointing out, is what hopefully others are able to pick out of Kiwi's post (as I see Stuart_Canada has). In his post, Kiwi states that it was a "16 volt" lithium ion drill, and by the post heading, presumably from Ridgid. Well, since we all (should/hopefully) know that Ridgid doesn't at the moment have a 16 volt drill, well maybe Kiwi could have got some of his other references wrong, such as "reco" being interpreted as reconditioned. If he messed up 16 volt for 18 volt, then he could have easily messed up reconditioned, for refurbished, or remanufactured, or resold. And there is a world of difference from each of those terms when it comes down to consumer goods.

    My god, I actually find myself agreeing with Tinmack's posts - just what, oh what, is this world coming to?!!!?!

    Don't Worry, Be Happy! Posters like Kiwi are just trolls looking to start trouble anyway. Posts and posters like him disappear from other sites i frequent!

    I think it was just a typo error and he meant to say 18 volt.

    Okay guys, both of you need to back off and show a little respect for the rest of us who have to endure your behavior.

    Thanks-Mark

    Your primitive personal attacks are very "mature". And "stop bothering people" is a passive aggressive "I speak for all" trick doesn't work with me. If I bother you personally that's too bad, cry me a river. You can't take a joke and have nothing contstructive to contribute, so you just run your mouth against me in every thread. This is called trolling and the place for it is digg or 4chan. I just read your last 50 or so posts and they are all uninformative fluff. Just FYI.

    Now back to OP. I think "Buy Dewalt" wasn't said because he got big $$$ to say it on some [obscure] forum, he was just upset. If it was somebody else they would have said any other brand.

    Ru&Lins, if your pee is the same color as Dewalt's plastic, I strongly recommend to change your diet and see a doctor

    We need to set up some kind of a duel between Tinmack and me, and post it on youtube. Maybe take a steel rod and he will put one end in his V28 drill chuck and the other end will be in my 28v Dewalt. Then press trigger at the same time. Whoever lets go of the drill, loses. :P The defeated party will refrain from posting for a year.

I don't exactly know how you guys can go about backing off on one another, but I believe you are both mature and smart enough to make it happen.
    I don't know it could get interesting I do have some doubt with the orignal post though, its almost as if he wanted a fight to start "buy dewalt" are you serious? Who wants pee colored tools? Especially used pee?

    Man, your advice is as good as a cheeseburger to a lactose-intolerant hindu.

    Tools are reconditioned by the manufacturer or an authorized service center who's QA comes from TTI/Ridgid. So NO, it's NOT the same as buying a used tool. Reconditioned is another term for "rebuilt". Rebuilt tools must perform just as good as new tools, have no worn or defective parts.

    Recon warranty comes from the manufacturer and NOT the seller (this is the most idiotic thing I've heard).
    You're assuming that in this case they WERE reconditioned by the manufacturer. Maybe they weren't.
