  • Discontinued 24v Tool Set or Convert???

    One of my batteries for the tool set just went dead and I fear the second is not too far behind. I saw they have discontinued the 24v product.

    My delimma is should I pay the $200 for 2 more batteries since they run at $100 each or convert to the 18v set??? I would hate to spend another $200 on top of what I spent to get the combo set only to have this tool set not have any support.

    Honestly, Rigid tools have lasted me the longest compared to the other brands and I do enjoy that extra power. However like a dummy, I registered online and missed out on the lifetime warranty since I failed to mail the UPC. However, I believe normal wear & tear is considered part of the 3 year warranty. Lesson learned, read all the details and do not assume anything.

    18V will power the 24V maxselect power tools but you may notice decreased power and endurance compared to the 24V batteries when they were working. Get that defective 24V replaced under the three year warranty and call Ridgid CS for advice on the LSA registration assuming you still have your receipt

      there are not too many 24 volt tools but i have most and i love them. They will still be supported but they are discontinued. Wish they were still making them.

        Watch HDs website, they occasionally have the entire 24v kits forsale from time to time. I just bought another 4 pc kit for 199.99!

          good point, they also have some individual tools as well sometimes, like the planer is on there now.

            I don't see a link on either website for anything. Is there a magic search term to find the planer?
            We don't have preventative maintenance around here, we have CRISIS MANAGEMENT!

                    I bought the 24V set in Dec, 2006. One of the batteries died. I took it to Home Depot for warranty replacement. They called me 2 days later saying I needed to give the the Lifetime Service Agreement number. So I go to their site where I registered the tools & got the number. Guess they couldn't do it.
                    Thats like when someone sends you a form in the mail then ask you for your address. (must have blonds working there) Now I have upset the blonds.

                    Anyway, will see what they say.
