  • Cordless reciprocating saw Q's

    Hi All,

    I am looking to pick up a cordless reciprocating saw, I currently have a number of batteries and charger from previous tools. all on the 18 v lithium ion system

    does anyone know if the models r8444 or r8442 will work? or are they the ni-cad

    all help appreciated,

    I think I want to go full size and not the one handed fuego version

    cheers,
    Jamie

    All 18v cordless tools will run on any of the Ridgid 18v batteries.
    Ni-cads have for all design reasons have been phased out and now lithium-ion
    batteries are the batteries of choice.

    Keep in mind the dual charger WILL NOT charge the lithium-ion batteries!!!!
    Only use the newer single chargers that sate "multi-chemistry batteries".
    They will charge ALL 18v batteries be it Ni-cads or lithium-ion types.
