  • New JobMax tools are up on Ridgid's site.....

    Under New Products they have the new JobMax tools but in order to get all the changeable heads you have to buy two different complete kits!

    Any word if the "heads" will be available seperately?

    Here are the links....

    The kits are designed for two purposes - one is close quarters and the other is a combination of popular capabilities.

    All goes well, and the individual components will be available, but that is later in the year.

    Thanks for the quick post!

          Thanks for the update! The kits look impressive for light-duty power tools

            Bosch, I believe, has a cordless oscillating tool similar to the multimaster tip in the autohammer kit. It's biggest knock is that the battery life is terrible.

            Any idea on the battery life with this 12V variety from Ridgid?

            Any idea about compatibility with competitor blades?

              not sure but willing to bet battery life is comparable. Supposed to have adapters for most other multi tool accessories. Most sounds vauge.

                Why doesn't anyone release an 18volt Multi tool? I have a Bosch Ps50 and it's great but it just runs through batteries.

                  I agree, posted earlier that hats off RIDGID had the balls to make their mini recip 18 volt while others were 12, should have continued in that route.

                      Just got the JobMax Combo in the post; was registering for the LSA online and noticed that the battery charger did not have a serial number on it. Thought I could register the rest of the parts and come back to the charger later, but that is not an option (looks like a rectangular space on the bottom of the charger is where the usual sticker with serial number would appear, but the space has nothing). Has anyone else experienced a similar situation? I'm curious to see how Ridgid handles this (I'm not too optimistic unfortunately; tried calling about my general LSA status from Sept '09 as suggested by many post on this site, but instead of getting resolution, I got the brush aside).

                        Update from earlier, cust serv was surprised that the charger had no serial number sticker on the bottom, but told me to use the first alpha/number sequence of the 12v drill/driver serial number as the charger's serial. Just fyi if anyone encounters this situation.
