My wife gave me a Ridgid 1/4 sheet sander for Christmas last year and I have not used it much and when I finally had a use for it it is useless. The handles that hold the paper on fly open from the vibration. It is a bad design and is useless so I tried to use the lifetime warranty that comes with any power tool (which is why she picked this one) you of course cant take it back to HD they make you send it to a official repair shop which is nothing more than anyone who wants to pay them to be one. So I find the list that are approved for power tools. There is only one within an hours drive so I call to ask about bringing it in and they say oh we dont do electrical power equipment you have to send it somewhere else. They do not list which ones does and does not work on my type of tool so it is a guessing game and this thing is heavy enough that if I send it to the wrong place a couple of times I would better off buying a different one anyway which is what I will do. I will never buy Ridgid again they are over priced pieces of junk. I could have gotten a Milwaukee cheaper and I am sure it would have lasted longer than one summer...........
No announcement yet.
Ridgid sander is useless and so is the warranty
