  • Ridgid R2740 18" belt sander

    I have this specific sander now close to 1 year now..amazing how quickly time passes!

    I just wonder why Ridgid uses such a stiff power cord cables?
    For example my Porter cable jig saw has a long cord yet it's very flexible.
    This allows a neat/easy wrapping of the cord and placement into the storage box.

    The Ridgid power cord is stiff and I find it retains a memory. Thus you need to be a bit careful in wrapping/coiling the cord as I fear breaking a wire inside.

    Now the cord length is indeed excellent and the illuminated plug is "clever"

    Well, I might as well add the Ridgid oscillating sander power cord too... The cord of course is shorter and beefier as expected but it also is quite stiff.
