  • what's next?

    just bought the 4pc set, plan on over time replacing all my panasonic (which i love, and will still use), and dewalt (which i hate. want them)cordless tools. what other cordless tools does Ridgid plan on coming out with? I would like to end up with just one brand and one size battery. Would like to see a metal cutting saw like panasonic's and metal shears like dewalts.
    Also a heavy duty hammer drill/chipping hammer, and grinder would be nice.

    I'll be glad to take those DeWalt tools you hate so much off your hands. Nothing I like better than free tools.

      I've owned 2 Dewalt 1/2 hammer drills and both lasted less then 5 months. Once you drop them they are garbage. I sent them to an authorized Dewalt service center. They worked intermitently after that. I swtched to Millwakee 18 volt 1/2 hammerdrill & sawzall combo kit. I have used & abused these tools for over 2 years & haven't had any problems other than a battery going bad. I,m hoping Rigid will make this same kit avalible at close to the same cost of 300.00 dollars.

            What is going on with new cordless tools ? I would really like to see the zip saw and router . I do not use these tools that much so I think the cordless would be great . Ridgid roped me in with the warranty and now I want more !!
