Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MVPNJ1 Best Ocillating Tool Out There
Oscillating tools IMO belong in every toolbox whether your a contractor like me or an apartment dweller. You can cut almost anything precisely from wallboard to Pergo to metal to Panduit to molding. It gets in places no other saw will reach. The sanding attachment, same thing. sands well into corners and is easy on fragile materials but is tough enough for lumber too.
As for this kit, its as slim as they get with the 18V lithium battery and easy to handle. The kit is complete. It actually will fit in a toolbox and in the case it will fit in an apartment for use in home repairs or crafts. I paid $69 bucks when it was introduced and used it on the job for six month now. However I'm ready to buy my daughter one for her first apartment for $99 bucks without even blinking. The build quality is first class. The case, charger and accessories will pass even the most finicky tool buyer like myself full expectations.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Leeroy Worked for 6 months
Tool worked amazing for 6 months, im a flooring installer, so i use it only to undercut door jambs, not heavy work at all. Today the tool just quit, battery said defective when i put it on the charger. So had to leave the job, drive to depot, bought the $70 bigger 12v battery, the small one sucks!!! Back to job, plug new battery in and the tool itself started smoking in my hand! Bam! For 20 bucks more could if just bought the tool over again. And this is what happens when you use a tool maid by RYOBI! Ridigd and ryobi are the same company just so ya know. Stick with what works. Dewalt, black and yellow all the way

I bought this multi tool and a similar product from harbor freight for a diy window replacement project. The harbor freight one is corded and loud, but is still running strong. Was also about 1/4 the price. I have had repeated problems with a short in the unit. Home depot would not replace, but took it back to fix. 6 weeks later still not functioning correctly. I am finally throwing it out. What a waste of money.

I purchased this tool to cut into door frames in my new construction for lighting and electrical. Its an amazing tool for many other things as well. I can't believe I waited so long to get around to buying one. The price and quality is also excellent.

One of the best tools I have purchased. Very good quality and easy to use. The tool was easy to assemble and the optional heads available will be purchased in the near future.

This is a great little tool for small jobs. I have used it to cut in flooring below door casings, stair stringer, cut notches into studs, grout removal, etc. It is small and lightweight and easy to get into tight spaces. I bought the reciprocating saw and jig saw job max attachments, and found that this 12V unit was quite under-powered even to cut through 2x4, however that is not a surprise and you can't knock it for that. This wont replace an 18V or corded tool in that regard, but for the little one offs in tight spaces it is great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Big Tool Buy the 18v version: this one is underpowered
I bought this 12v cordless version of the Jobmax as I already had the 12v driver. I have no issues with the tool itself, but quickly discovered the oscillating cutting head sucks the life out of the small cartridge batteries after only two minutes of use. I bought a bigger 5.0Ah battery, and this works much better. Still, I have to run this tool with two chargers, swapping between four batteries, in order to avoid downtime. I often use an air compressor, so most of the time if I need this tool, I now use the air tool body that I bought, with much better results. Still, great cutting head, that can accept Dremel and Bosch blades, as well as the Ridgid ones. I've also got the jigsaw head and the angle drill head, which also work well. The pneumatic hammer head isn't much use, however.
