Rated 3 out of 5 by There appears to be a defect with this tool, everyone has the same issues While I own about every Ridgid product and they have all performed well and held up well, this tool must have a design flaw. The tool will work ok for a bit then I'm not sure if it gets hot and shuts off or what but just stops. Like all of my 12 volt tools, the batteries don't hold up well so if you get one be sure to register it properly and when they replace your batteries under warranty, re-register them asap. The tool is handy and cuts ok but something is not right with mine and I need to ship it back to have it repaired or replaced. Despite battery issues and minor things like this I have continued to purchase Ridgid tools because of the warranty. I know all batteries will eventually fail so at least I'm covered as long as I live. November 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great little tool great tool, ample power, great selection of add ons December 12, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very Low Battery Life from a freshly charged battery (the one that comes with it, i believe its 1ah.. the unit with the sanding pad attachment will only last a mere 5 minutes at full speed. I understand sanding is probably a high amp load but still. its not even worth using at this point. I have other Ridgid tools and they're great. The same battery in a 12v cordless drill lasts forever. i have narrowed it down to the tool. For significant jobs, This 12v jobmax will stay in the shed. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most versatile tool My most used tool in my workshop. Just pop on a different head and keep on truckin. I use this more than any other tool. December 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by i use this product for everything! i purchased the Job Max 12 volt kit, with the socket wrench, and jig saw head. I have used this product from laying laminate flooring, plumbing, installing drywall, insulating my shop, and most recently installing composite decking. I have had other multi-tools but none stand up to the Job Max. I have been a loyal Ridgid owner for many years! Thank You for making a versatile and well made tool! Sincerely; Mike A.
