Customer Reviews

JobMax 12-Volt Base Console (Tool-Only) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy another brand The first one of these I purchased has started to have intermittent issues and because I didn't cross the T's and dot the I's on my original purchase Rigid would not honor their warranty even though I had my sales receipt. I have all the accessories made for this tool so it made replacing it the only course of action that made sense. If I wouldn't have had the accessory tools I would have pitched it and bought a different brand from your competitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very ridgid Ridgid! I purchased this Ridgid base console to go along with my Ridgid right angle impact driver. I needed them to complete a do it yourself kitchen project I was working on. It was great for locking these cabinets together tightly. It is plenty strong and very good in tight spaces. The Ridgid 4.0 battery I picked up the same day lasted for the entire project that day with out needing a charge I give this tool an A+ and five stars *****. Thank you Home Depot and Thank you Ridgid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool,hard to register I have been a rigid tool owner since 2006,never had problems with any tool,repairs have been easy a quick when needed.Of late RIDGID have given me a very difficult time registering my last three new tools,not the tools failure but a failure of RIDGID CUSTOMER SERVICE ! it has taken me online registering,then they req. Me to mail all my orig. paper work,and then I had to call them to to answer loads of questions to get the warranty, a real pain RIDGED !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated and better My gen 1 multi tool was a gift from my cousin. I thought to myself that this thing was going to be a dog compaired to my corded unit, and boy was I wrong. The only thing I didn't like was the tool head was a little sloppy. I invested in more battery's and a right angle head and a few weeks later she died! I ordered an new body and was excited to see that the heads fit nice and snug and there is now a battery life indicator on it! I use this tool every day and use it hard. I would recommend it to anyone for occasional or professional use. The ability to go from a multi cutter to a right angle drill and back again is indespensable in my line of work. Good job Ridgid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the upgrade Bought this to replace old worn out unit. Seems to have a bit more torque than previous unit and love the battery gauge LEDs on this one. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works fine. This units coupling head seems to be out of spec with my old heads, they are very difficult to get on and off. Once on they work fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Tool But Could be Better Sturdy and enough weight so that balance is fine with different heads - that's a critical design point and well done. Charge indicator seems random since with new battery it reads 4 blips, squeeze trigger and it reads 2 blips, unplug/replug battery and it reads 4 blips again - hmmm - doesn't really work but not a critical thing. I like it for tight spaces but it doesn't rotate as the Bosch does. Also it is not variable speed and I didn't catch that downside before I purchased. So a drill or impact driver runs top speed as soon as you pull the trigger. Maybe okay for oscillating tool or even jig saw but a real bummer for a drill. Overall 4 stars but I almost said 3 stars due to the non-variable speed trigger.
