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.

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 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.

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 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.
