    if bosch made one of these. they could always put the 18v 6 amp in and that should last a little longer. When bosch comes out with the cordless random orbital, I can’t wait to see what the 4a will do on it.

    yes I am very curious to see how and what sort of runtime the new enracer 6.3 and how it will compare with the other big boys , like the Mil 9.0 amp and the yellow 60 volts

    I agree, it’s definitely not a replacement for a full sized corded belt sander, and shouldn’t be looked at as one. It’s more of a convenient cordless alternative for quick and smaller jobs.

    However like just about any cordless tool if you have enough batteries you probably could run it non stop full time as if it were corded.

    I agree!

    I feel like that was a pretty fair review, From what he said if that were on a battery platform that I have, bosch or milwaukee, I would buy it. Dont have any plans to get into ridgid at this time but if they keep coming out with some of these with no answers from other brands I may jump in.

    I see that looks okey i guess but for aome reason on any belt sander i felt if you push it down hard enough motor slows down i dont know how is that gonna work on battery power belt sander. Belt sanders are power hungry. I wish we can get beltsander from bosch but they dont make one

    My dad has an older bosch belt sander and it’s great. I don’t know why they stopped making them. But imo the old made in the USA porter cable belt Sanders are the best

    I still haven’t found one that works as hard, or feels like my old porter cable.

    No matter how good you think you are you there is always someone that is better, or can teach you something.

    That’s true, but I’m sure those guys don’t just have one battery,

    Have batteries is a must.

    This is true. It looks like almost all the tools RIDGID sells are bare tools. Do they have the cordless router in a kit with charger and batteries?

    Not that I have seen Bill. I think this one is bare tool only.

    I think so too. Guess I’ll have to put the starter kit on my list as well.

    I’m feeling the same way.

    Since I’m always mobile I’m not big on multiple battery platforms because it’s just inconvenient trying to charge them where my sites tend to have limited outlets.

    However with the new products they are releasing combined with the price point it’s hard to simply ignore them.
