  • 2011 Tools?

    Does anyone know of the new tool lineup for 2011, and what it consists of? What tools might be getting upgraded or created? Thanks a bunch.

        Are you saying that RIDGID will be offerng a dual-bladed saw similar to the Craftsman?

              That jigsaw and compressor look really nice. I like the jigsaw especially.

                That Jig Saw has been out for some time now. It's nice but doesn't have the power of the old 6.0 one.

                  dont have the saw in col oh yet, just a cardboard cutout. I guess its online though. Compressor is cool, want wheels though.

                    Got the new MSUV. Much nicer than the previous model, especially for larger based sliding compound saws. Easy to setup, much more stable, and can be open and closed in less than a few seconds. The MS legs are really nice in the ability to quickly move the saw from stand to table and back quickly with only the movement of a lever. Unfortunately, I do not own the Ridgid sliding saw, so I had to use a piece of MDF to make a base for my slider and mount that to the legs. The saw I own does not have holes lining up perfect front to back which makes it impossible to use without mounting the saw to a board first. My friends Dewalt suffered the same fate. Aside from that, the only issue I saw was the lack of a roller on the extension arms. However, all the boards slide very easily across the round tubes and the stops work efficient enough. I think Ridgid has a winner with this one. I looked into the Ryobi and Dewalt stands, but they were both very narrow and needed additional leg supports on the extensions to hold them up. Only Bosch makes a MSUV that can compare.

                      Well there you go... no wonder the old model had more power! I bet this new model is much quieter though!

                        is it less wobbly than the last one? That was my prob with last model.

                          I never had the previous Ridgid model, but I used the Dewalt in the past and it was the same size. This model is much wider and is actually more like the stand that holds up the R4510 table saw. It has a stable rubber feet that make it feel very secure opposite the wheels. When you are ready to open or close this bad boy, just prop it up on the rubber feet and press the release lever with your foot and it swings up or down with ease. Could not be happier. I have the Hitachi 12" sliding compound saw (C12RSH) and even with the saw mounted to the frame by just the locking clamps, it holds strong without moving even vertically. This saw weighs 66 lbs and doesn't even want to slide down on the tubular frame so the rubber clamps do their job well.
