"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
If it's photo shop then it looks pretty good. The resolution is really low so it makes it hard to zoom in and see if there was any manipulation. It does not look like the AEG version though, the handles are different. The X4 model has a handle like the ones on the hammer drills where as the AEG version is black and orange. The X4 version's grip area on the body is also different than the AEG version (The black plastic). The AEG version is smooth, the X4 has the indents which continue from the orange into the black. Also notice the wheel is a ridgid wheel.
I can't find anything online regarding this tool but if this one is fake then they did a pretty good job photoshoping it.
WOOT!!! The way the TTi rep at Home Depot last week acted when I asked about the grinder, I figured it was coming, hopefully the demo hammer and a 1/2" impact is on the horizon! Maybe they are finally listening!!!
A little heads up here on the forum would be appreciated. Why the secrecy? It's not as if some other company is going to beat Ridgid to the punch with a grinder or heavy duty 1/2" impact wrench, they have had theirs on the market for years!
Just got back from my local home depot. No sign of any Ridgid angle grinder, but the display for Milwaukee was impressive. Their cordless 1/2" impact wrench was rated at 450lbs peak and 650ftlbs breakaway (?). Impressive numbers for a cordless tool, and $169 for the bare tool. I can wait to see what Ridgid offers. I have been getting by with my corded impact, but I sure would like to just pop a battery in and go.
