    I may be interested in the Ridgid 18V stapler....Any specs out there yet?
    Any idea as to when it will go from vaporware to actually in home Depot stores?

    I have the Ridgid Butane hear gun. The new 18V heat gun shown has a run time of maybe
    20 minutes with a 6AH battery... and non heat adjustable at 900F....
    I wonder why they went from the one style to another?

    A different question direction.... other than RYOBI still using that ugly green color... has
    their tool quality improved to where it matches or exceeds Ridgid, Milwaukee 18v tools?
    One positive is RYOBI has an amazing selection of 18V tools and lawn care tools.

      I bought the Ryobi 18v heat gun a couple years ago because I got tired of waiting for RIDGID to get off their duff.

      I know the money goes to the same place but the loss is no LSA for the Ryobi tools and not really that much cheaper.

      Nice to see some multi-port chargers finally from RIDGID. Ryobi has had them for over a decade.

        New RIDGID High Torque 1/2" Impact Wrench model R86212 review by the Torque Test Channel.



        Doesn't beat the numbers achieved by the RIDGID R86211b 18V Octane Impact, but close. And the best part is it'll only cost you about $20 more. :-)

        I see the R86211b is still listed on the HD website. None available to me locally within 35 miles but can be ordered online for free delivery tomorrow for $229. That's more power for less money than the new R86212 impact. So if you are on the fence it's time to jump and go get the Octane 18V Impact before it's gone forever.

        I have the DeWalt DCF899HB that I bought 3.5 years ago and is still working fine. Don't remember for sure but I don't think the RIDGID Octane was out back then. If I didn't have the DeWalt I would jump on the Octane 18V now before they're gone.

          On a side note, did anyone see Ryobi just released their 18 volt track saw. $399. with saw, battery charger and 2 tracks that total 55''. only 1 review so far.

            No, didn't see that Rick.

            But you know what that means.

            We will most likely never see a RIDGID version of a track saw
            now that there are Milwaukee and Ryobi versions out there. It's
            all up to HD since the RIDGID brand is basically theirs as is the
            Ryobi so why would they bring out two track saws. There is probably
            a higher profit margin on the Ryobi and no LSA to deal with so
            I don't see a RIDGID Version coming. But hopefully I'm wrong.

            So once more all the die-hard RIDGID fans will be left out in the
            cold, and their loyalty repaid with nothing new from RIDGID.

            For myself I already have two track saws, one Festool cordless
            and one DeWalt which is corded, so I won't be looking for a third.
            But if I was I would prefer it to be a RIDGID over a Ryobi.

              $329. without battery and charger.

              $399. with battery and charger.

              Doesn’t look like additional track is available right now. Nor is there a compatible one that the Q&A talks about. Can’t imagine they would design a proprietary track and not offer additional tracks.

                I searched both Ryobi and HD websites, but there is no accessory track available. So I downloaded the manual looking for a list of accessories not included with the saw. There is a longer track listed, it's 55 inches. So if you want to rip a sheet of ply lengthwise you will need a pair of 55 inch tracks but there is no listing for just the 55 inch track. It has a part number in the manual though. You get two 27.5" tracks with the saw. It should be one 27.5" and one 55".

                Looking at the specs on the Ryobi site I see a major fail (in my book anyway) with the bevel cut capacity.

                Only 1-7/16" when using the track. So you can't make a bevel cut in a 2x4 if you're using the track which is how the saw is designed to be used.
                Trying to make a long bevel cut in 2x material without the track would not work.

                  I saw yesterday that a 55" rail as a stand-alone accessory is coming soon. But will it actually appear in stores? THAT is the big question. RIDGID and Ryobi are not known for having these accessories appear on store shelves and by store I mean Home Depot which is the only official place you can get them for the most part not counting directtoolsoutlet.com

                Its max torque mumber was higher than the octane was it not? While the octane was better on the curve? Iirc..


                Edit: yea the 4ah max output hit 748 while the octane hit 738

                  For anyone interested there is a huge number of RIDGID Factory Blemished tools for sale on the directtoolsoutlet.com website.
                  Factory blemished tools carry a full warranty and I believe can be registered for the LSA. But RECONDITIONED tools can not, so
                  be mindful of which one you purchase.

                  I must have scrolled through over 100 BLEM tools alone. Everything from tool bags for $5 to a pair of 4AH batteries for $169.
