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

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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by william One Of The Best Tools I Own
I own and operate my own general contracting business. I normally use all Milwaukee when it comes to power tools. However when looking for a good oscillating tool Milwaukees was $119 for just the bare tool no battery no charger. after looking at every other brand I came upon Rigids JobMax cordless oscillating tool. for the same price it came with the tool, the battery, a charger as well as a carry bag and quite a few other accessories. Having heard good things about the Rigid brand I purchased it. What really got me excited about this tool was the different heads that can be attached to the tool. I also purchased a rotozip attachment and the small Sawzall attachment ad well as a bigger spare battery. I am more than pleased with my purchase. I won't do a single job without this tool with me. I am impressed with its power, battery life and durability. I would recommend this tool and the Rigid brand to anyone. This is now my second choice for any tool under my preferred Milwaukee.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by astrobill great tool. Terrible batties. Don't buy this tool.
I've bought 2 extra batteries for this tool. they last about 2 to 3 minutes and thats it. Worthless on the job.
batteries failed to charge after less than one year. Rigid owes me an apology for this tool. I bought the corded one to take advantage of the adapters. The corded one works really well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carpenter Don't know how I would do without it
I have been a carpenter/contractor for 40+ years and this is one of the most useful tools I own. I had initially bought a competitors 12v. multitool and that was a mistake; while it did the job, the battery didn't last long and it wasn't very powerful.
In certain situations, there isn't anything that will do the job better. I use it to plunge cut into baseboard, undercut door trim and jambs to install flooring, sand trim, spot sand drywall, cut holes in vinyl siding for outlets, and the list goes on. I have had mine for about a year and if I lost it, I would buy one again in days. And if it broke, Ridgid would give me another one for free! Great tool.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by joe71 Poor battery life.
It worked well when the battery lasted. But after only a few uses the battery no longer holds a charge. But now it is almost useless.

The only problem I have with this kit is in the Lifetime Service Agreement. It was a pain getting it, because the items were sent individually, instead of the kit. However, with a little persistence to the Ridgid people, the LSA is in affect. Thanks for great service to Home Depot and The Ridgid company. Love it!
