  • 12 volt cordless tools

    As a long time Ridgid power tools customer. I am very sorry to hear that Ridgid has stopped making the 12 volt cordless tool line. As working for a living , the wear and tear working puts on my body has made it very helpful to be able to use a liter line of power tools that are dependable. The 12 volt line of tools did that.
    Now that these tools are discontinued. I am sorry to say that I will be forced to look for a new brand of cordless tools. So it looks like Ridgid will be losing a loyal customer.

    Where did you hear that the entire 12v line of tools was going away?

      I heard it from Ridgid that they were no longer making the 12 volt line. I was looking for the Ridgid 12 volt cordless oscillating tool model 9700 and called them.

        That's sad.

          If you live near a Direct Tools outlet they have factory blemished 12 volt JobMax oscillating cordless . It also qualifies for LSA .

            We used to have an outlet store about 30 miles away but it closed a while back. So the closest one is over 100 miles, not gonna happen for me.
            Besides, I have all the attachments I want from what is available. :-)

            I wish there were others, but apparently that is not in the cards.

            I will say that for $25 I would get the ratchet head if you were on the fence about it. It does work well and for that price it's a no-brainer to me.
            The shear head is another good one to get along with the jig saw and the one-hand jab(recip) saw. Those are the four heads I use the most.

            good luck on finding a direct tools with one of those ratchet heads, they are all sold out, AND if you do find some, buy them and flip on ebay for 100$ each, thats where you can find them.

            heres 1 example

            There are three AEG jobmax ratchet heads on eBay right now for just under $100. As you said that's crazy high but most are at over $150

          I see the shear head for a crazy low price of $19.99. If you cut sheet goods or gasket material of light gauge aluminum or copper this think is great. For $19 I would get one if I didn't already have one.
          Four stores show as having some in stock. Between them about 75 units.

          There are plenty of the recip saw heads too. I have one and they work great for light duty stuff.

            If you do buy one be sure to go to Ridgid parts and order a number of spare cutting blades
            before they obsolete them....

            Good point, I already have one (shear head) and it's a good tool. The blades are reversible so you get two shots. But yes I should get more before they are gone.
            You can be sure they are NOT in the stores like every other RIDGID consumable for every other tool. They are always MIA when you go to the store looking for replacements.
