    Pretty sweet. Which do you find that you use the most?

    I use the multi tool the most. Of the right angles I use the drill driver to drill and counter sink then use the impact to drive the screw when setting cabinets. I use the drill-driver to drill and the impact to drive screws and I have a power handle for both so it’s very convenient.

    I have the AC Jobmax and the 12V Jobmax with the oscillating (2x), the reciprocrating saw and the right angle drill driver attachments. Although I believe the recip saw lacks a little bit of cutting speed, I am more than pleased with the oscillating and the drill driver heads. The drill driver has been very useful under the sink to drill a hole for the dishwasher’s hoses.

    Has anyone here tried the jigsaw attachment ? I’m interested in buying but have not found a dedicated review anywhere.

    I have their coffee grinder sized router and it’s a little workhorse.

    I have the same router – its probably the router I use most often.

    Every time I go to HD, I look at the jobmax. I may have to add it to my collection of ridgid tools.

    I received the AC Jobmax as my birthday present this last August and it’s become my go-to tool in many situations. Last night, I went and bought the 12V Jobmax as I sometimes felt that the AC version was a bit too much for minor touchups. Can’t wait to really work out that 12V Jobmax.

Sometimes you can get a JM with 2 heads or like I started out was a 12volt JobMax and a 12volt driver and 2 batteries and charger all for 129$. how could I go wrong? Now the collection looks like this. Oh by the way JohnS loves these pics it’s like a train wreck , he;s just got to looky see

    I was just on HD’s website looking at the jobmax – they have a pneumatic version?!

    Yes they do! I’ve been tempted but not yet.

    Dirty — you need to put the Jobmax into an L-Boxx…

    From what I’ve read, the pneumatic Jobmax requires an insane amount of SCFM for continuous use, therefore an enormous air tank, which can be a major turn-off for most DIYers out there.

    Fortunately for me I have a plethora of air compressors…one of which happens to be a 10 gallon compressor that I use for roofing

    That’s why I’ve held off. My compressor is not big

    That stinks….how did you like it? I have read that they are very quiet, which is appealing to me. Cycle time good? Any pros/cons? Thanks!

    It was a great compressor. I used for interior trim, very quiet – you could be in the same room with and talk at a normal volume. Cycle time was good, it was light….all in all a great trim compressor. As for cons – I don’t believe the jc10 would work well for anything other than trim work.

    I’m not sure if a 10 Gallon would be enough to run a pneumatic jobmax. Pneumatic tools like that will empty a compressor in short order. I have a Campbell Hausfeld 8 gallon that is suppose to be the equivalent of larger compressor, and using an impact with it will cause it to run a lot. I find it is just not quite enough for air tools. I would like to see how the Jobmax compares though.
