The old Grey they sent me via UPS, came with a blue tag for a return address. Different lines, different whatever. Blue took the stand on being the shipper. To me, it's an indication who really is licensed to manufacture.
Just my guess, but Ryobi bought the rights, hired OWT to manufacture. Remember the peter-paul-dave post? It's cluster of a mess for us to try and figure it out. But I'll say it again...
IF YOU WANT IT DONE RIGHT, DO IT YOURSELF! Ridgid wansn't broke, don't know why they thought they hat to fix it.
