Customer Reviews

JobMax 12-Volt Base Console (Tool-Only) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'm not sure what this tool could be used... I'm not sure what this tool could be used for. I was trying to cut sheet rock with the cutterhead which I thought wouldn't have been much of a challenge but the tool didn't even pretend to have enough power. The cutter bit would stop spinning almost as soon as I touched it to the sheet rock.

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 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 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!
