  • R2600

    Anyone else have this problem: My R2600 had been a great sander until I noticed that the backer pad was just spinning at max RPMs rather than random orbit. Any info is greatly appreciated!

    the obvious....if the sander is new less than 30 days old return it for a new one.
    the obvious....if the sander is older and registered exercise the warranty process

    the not so obvious....have you verified the mounting of 590936001 item #39 and 300527002 #41 are secured properly?

    you never indicated if this is a "used" tool purchase....Sadly I have found most "used" tools offered are sold for a reason, typically they have problems!

      Thank you, Cactus Man! My sander was bought new, though I have lost the receipt. I e mailed Ridgid a few days ago to see if I had registered the purchase, but have not received a reply. The only part I can see that is damaged is #39, P/N 590936001 which I think is the brake skirt. Here again, I asked Ridgid what the brake skirt does, but have received no reply.
