    Well Hope you will get some snacks and stay a while

    :P

    Does anybody know if the jobmax has any recent developments in terms of new additions to the line? Or upgrades to the batteries, etc?

    JohnS funny you should ask I really didn’t want a information overload going on here so I was holding back on some stuff But just for those that want to know THIS IS TOP SECRETE INFO GOING ON HERE AND IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW LOOK AWAY NOW!!!!

    Ridgid is releasing a new 4 AH 12volt battery to go in their 12 volt lineup Again this is top secrete stuff and should not be released at this time so mums the word Or I shall never share the top secrete stuff again

    I have only used a Rigid drill. Not real impressed, seamed a little heavy. DW not any better. You cant go wrong with my Milwaukee cordless tools, down to the Milwaukee Radio.

    Looks like you bought in – hook, line, and sinker Dirty. I am not there myself, but to each his own! And I was impressed with that article Jason posted… very cool.

    I was scoping out Ridgid on their website this weekend and noticed that they have a lifetime tool warranty? Has anyone taken them up on this before? If its a solid backed warranty then heck it would be good to have a drill that you use for grunt work like mixing crete or paint exe.

    Cool article, but I always think that any tool article is suspect — they are never really unbiased. This is not to say that the Jobmax is not a great tool that does all the things the article says well. I like some Ridgid stuff and some of it I would pass on.

    Yes Jason,, the earlier jobmax 12volt had a solder spot at the trigger that heated up and went out and I would just take it back the HD and they give me a new one. No receipt, they just opened a new box and pulled out the new power handle and pau.

    Wow dirty that is really impressive. I hope it drives the whole industry in that direction. Do they ask you if it was for personal or commercial use?

    No HD doesn’t. The tool is intended for the jobsite and construction industry use.

    That sounds as good as the old Craftsman warranty. I am very impressed that they are willing to stand behind their tools to that extent. The more I am reading and hearing about Ridgid the more I think they are not all that bad.

    It would be hard for companies to make money with this kind of a warranty though…

    I think Ridgid makes some nice stuff — their routers seem decent and I know at one point their sander was made by Metabo and was very nice. Like anything, some duds in the mix too. I had a Craftsman table saw that is/was the exact replica of the Ridgid table saw for several years and it worked well. Only got rid of it when I upgraded to a cabinet saw.

    This is very true. Ridgid is a name that HD uses for their line of tools and sub out the manufacturing to different tool co. As Scot has said some are good and some not so good. I have their coffee grinder sized router and it’s a little workhorse.
