  • Ridgid, this makes NO business sense!

    Why would you not design your new plumbing cordless tools to use the same batteries as the rest of your cordless tools? IE, the TC-40, why not design it to use the same 12v Li that the drill, jobmax, etc use? Makes absolutely no business sense to me at all. I don't really care as I don't use plumbing tools, but from a business stand point it seems quite stupid. Your spending money on two different configurations when cost savings could be had by using ONE format!

    Just saying.

    Do you think it is something as sinister as Ridge Tool would make no money on any of those TTI designed and produced 12V Li batteries? It's easy to forget that Ridgid plumbing tools and Ridgid power tools share the Ridgid trademark but little else.

      Dave, your probably right. That or maybe because its red cousin did this and they don't want to directly compete with BigRed? Makes absolutely no sense to me!
