BrandMan, I went to my local HD today with the intention of buying one of your X2 cordless drills. I also found myself eyeing your new 6 inch orbital sander. It weighs a ton but should be a horse in quick material removal and would compliment my PC333VS. I decided I wanted both the drill and the orbital sander. I then went to the sandpaper section to stock up on 6 inch discs of different grits. Lo and behold, I discovered HD does not sell 6 inch hook and loop discs through they do sell a small selection of 6 inch adhesive discs. I checked another HD in my area and got the same results with the manager telling me he knows of no plans to stock 6 inch discs to fit the Ridgid sander. Same thing at my local Lowes in terms of carrying 6 inch hook and loop. Is Ridgid attempting to sell this tool through a retailer that does not even carry the basics for it to work or do I have the bad luck to have some poorly stocked HD stores in my area?
No announcement yet.
