Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Product has great features I purchased this product because of the ridged name and the fact that I have a number of ridged power tools which are great. . . .So the choice to purchase this one was easy. . . .I had read the reviews and there was only one that I was concerned about. . . .Battery. . . .When I received the multi tool, I placed battery on charge to make sure it was fully charged. . . .I then proceeded to make several cute in some pine. . . .At 1/2 - 2/3 rd's speed, the battery lasted approx. 5 minutes. . . .What a disaster. . . .You would need 2- 3 batteries to do 10-15 minutes work. . . .Needles to say, I am returning the product for a refund. . . .I ended up using a friends 12V multi tool (not a ridgid# and had no problem completing my job with one battery #approx. 20-30 minutes of pretty continuos use). . .I was really looking forward to having and using this product . . . .Wish that someone could give me an answer to the problem and why it has not been corrected. . . .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 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 3.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The multiple use of this product is great I purchased this tool about a year and a half ago we moved about the same time and have doing a lot of renovations on the new house. I have used this multi tool on every room I have remodeled in one aspect or another I have purchased most of the multiple heads that come with tool and love everyone I have purchased. I don't know what I would do if didn't have this Ridgid tool. November 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good little tool I've had mine for about a year and a half now. Had always wanted to get a similar tool but never did. The other tools don't offer the different heads like the Job Max. I have an angle drill,the ratchet and several different blades for it. As a residential contractor I'm faced with many different tasks during a build. My cordless JM has been a lifesaver many times. But it does have it's limitations and drawbacks.You have to remember it's only 12 volts, which is OK by me. It's very handy when installing flooring or trim, drywall,foam insulation.Most anyting where space is limited I grab it. One of the drawbacks are the batteries. They are a bit spendy and don't really last too long. They could use an upgrade. Also I think Ridgid could offer a bigger selection of blades for the starter tool. I use some other makers blades and such from time to time. all in all the JobMax is a handy little tool. Wish I had one a long time ago. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great for price I have had several of these over the past year now i have several extra parts everytime i get one i have it for about a week excellent product but too good because everyone else wants one too so they take mine 7 this year i bought a rockler brand the last time i still have it nobody wants to steal it but it does have a cord lol.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great addition to my toolbad Rugged, easy to use, easy to change batteries. The ability to rotate the toolhead in relation to the tool body makes getting into tight/awkward spots easier than a fixed head tool. My only suggestion would be an easier/quicker way to change bits/blades on the multi tool head. The lifetime battery replacement raises the bar for all cordless tools. November 24, 2014
