  • Will this AEG tool make it to the US under the RIDGID label?

    Will the RIDGID line pick up this 12V drill with removable chuck? I wonder.
    This is very similar to the Festool C18. The Festool is $495 though, I would
    expect the AEG or RIDGID tool to be much, much lower in price.

    How about this guide rail for the AEG saw?

      It's been almost a year, anyone heard anything about this unique drill coming to the RIDGID Lineup?

      What do you think, does this tool interest you? I would buy one if it used the same battery as my other 12V RIDGID drills, driver, and JobMax.

        Not interested. I've abandoned the 12V format. The jobmax is a better specialty tool imo.

          Bump. It was recently announced that Bosch has come out with their own
          version of the AEG multi-chuck drill/driver. The Bosch GSR12V-140FCB22
          12V Max Flexiclick 5-In-1 Drill/Driver System is going for less than $200.
          That's half the price of the comparable Festool kit but the Festool is a 15V
          tool and the Bosch is 12V.

          So it looks like RIDGID is still asleep at the wheel. They've had access to
          this same tool for over a year, close to two years I think but still nothing.
          They could have been selling this long ago and got the jump on Bosch,
          but too late for that now.

          Well if Festool, Bosch, Makita, and Mafell all think there is money to be made
          with a tool like this, maybe something is wrong with those who chose what
          tools RIDGID should bring out every year.

          In their defense though I must say that those specialty chucks don't get a
          lot of use by me. But when you need them they can't be beat. The offset and
          the right-angle chucks on the Festool T15 drill perform very well.

          Hopefully RIDGID will bring out something in time for the 2017 holiday selling season.

            I can see the market for this, however Ridgid has plenty of catch up to do with more main stream tools already offered by the other brands. I'm just glad I invested in Milwaukee , so many tools to choose from, and I can still buy Ridgid if they decide to offer new tools and not just another drill, driver kit.

                Oh GOD, not another stinking radio?

                Those that can do, those that can't make radios.

                  Well, I waited as long as I could, just over three years, and still nothing from RIDGID on this tool. In the
                  mean time I have used my Festool T15+3 which has all the same attachments but is larger, about twice
                  the size of the ARG or Bosch units. Works fine but I wanted something smaller for even tighter work spaces.

                  So today I bought the Bosch GSR12V-140FCB22 12V Max Flexiclick 5-In-1 Drill/Driver System at Lowes.

                  Don't know if HD had it for sale and to tell you the truth I didn't even look. I get 10% off (military discount)
                  on everything at Lowes with zero hassle, and HD gives me a line of cr@p so I find myself buying more and
                  more at Lowes, which means I never even get near a RIDGID tool display. Saved $27 and change today at
                  Lowes buying the drill and a few other items.

                  Thanks HD for making my purchase decision so easy!

                    that drill looks pretty much like a 12V Ridgid Fuego R82009, minus the fuel gauge and the removable chuck

                      While there must be a demand to justify another drill, I can't believe the Ridgid ,18volt platform would not support sales of lawn tools such as sold by many other cordless tool manufacturers. If I am correct that businesses exist to make money, how can Ridgid refuse
                      a guaranteed market share?
