Customer Questions & Answers

Battery Compatibility?

I'm looking at the GEN5X 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Combo Kit (5-Piece), and I'd like to add an oscillating tool like this to my tool bag.....are the batteries that come with the Gen5X combo kit compatible with this tool?

Does this JobMax work as grinder?

I would like to know if this tool could work as a grinder and which accessories I have to use to do it Thanks and regards.
Asked by: Sugimori
OK, not a real grinder, but here is the description of the rotary cutter head that you can purchase as a separate attachment (; note the words "cut-off" and "grinding:" "Includes: rotary cutter head, 1/8 in. collet, 1/8 in. drywall cutter bit, 1/8 in. shank cut-off wheel mandrel, 10 cut-off wheels, 3 reinforced cut-off wheels, 1/8 in. shank grinding stone, operator's manual." So it's like a teeny-weeny grinder, or really more a Dremel. The head is only $30 so I bought it but haven't used it yet. There are Youtube videos showing it cutting metal -- small stuff like nails. I'm confident it'll prove useful for delicate tasks. Anything more and you'll need a legit grinder.

Battery clarification

The specs state the tool is compatible with battery AC840084 (among others). Is this the same as battery R840084?? If not, is the R840084 battery compatible with this tool? I have the Li-ion drill / impact driver with these batteries and would love to add the multi-tool to my arsenal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool does not over heat as much as the 12 volt version Because there is less heat ( from the lower amps), one spends less time weighting for this tool to cool down. You will get longer run times out of it than the 12v version . But for heavy use and long cutting times avoid this tool, and get the corded version (which can really hog material away). When the motor heats up you have to let it cool before continuing no one wants to wait for the tool to work - it should always be ready - but you will be waiting for the tool to cool down if you attempt heavy cuts. Otherwise it run great for intermittent cuts. (much better that the 12v version)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Multi Tool Rocks Excellent tool - cannot believe I never had one before this.. The interchangeable heads can be a little difficult to change but that ensures their tight fit - so it's worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Handy My boss had a corded version of this tool but the ability to move without a cord is a critical aspect of this guy's usefulness. If you do any remodeling, this is a must have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken Twice I bought this tool on a Saturday. Opened onot Monday and proceeded to cut notches in 5/4x4 cedar. It broke within 25 sec. The motor spooled and the gear case started spitting out plastic. I thought it was a fluke. Took it back and got a new one today. This time it lasted a total of 2 min. This thing is absolute junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Recently started replacing my Dewalt told that I've been using for about 10 years. Decided to go with Ridgid after reading great reviews and the lifetime warranty was the deal closer. Bought the hammer drill and the circ saw and loved both do I bought the Job Max because I needed to under cut done door frames. I hadn't replaced my DeWalt recip saw yet so I picked up the recip head for this, I've done a couple jobs since then that required a recip saw, I used the Job Max and was surprised, I didn't miss my full sized saw at all. I was planning on buying the recip saw very soon, but after using this in going to wait and buy a couple other things first. I will get to the Gen5 recip eventually, but I don't need it right now, the Job Max had the power I need for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best multi tool I've ever had This thing is awesome it is portable, powerful and reliable The ability to quick change the heads to a saw drill sheet rock cutter and driver is absolutely most versatile tool I have. The heads are in stock at most home Depot stores but I had to order the hammer on line. Its interchangeable with Roybi (not the battery ) and when I go do a small job like cabinet or closets this is all I need. Keep in mind this is a multitool not intended to be primary tool set it is for small jobs and wont take the place of the full size tools and I'm sure was not intended to do so. The 18v 4.0 battery will last for most any small job. I Used it all day on cabinets and never recharged the battery (battery not included ) I recommend the 4.0 battery, and the charger that comes with any 18v Ridgid product will charge the 4.0. The only thing I would like to see is for Ridgid to include the quick change tool head on this, that came on my corded thru cool 110v jobmax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great "multipurpose" tool Installed a new laminate floor and needed to cut door molding/jambs. I first was going to buy a Dremel, but when I realized that Ridgid had this available, it was a "no brainer" to keep the same battery system for all my tools. Oh, and the lifetime warranty is a "plus" to boot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Enough Power I love Ridgid tools. That said, I purchased the 18v model so I could use the detail sander and plunge cut blades to do my hardwood floors. The sander attachment worked great. The plunge cut attachment failed completely. Trying to cut my oak door jambs took forever to cut just one. Any pressure applied, caused the blade to stop vibrating, forcing me to apply very little pressure in order to attempt any progress with cutting. In no time at all, I realized that this type of tool should not be made as a cordless option. Yes, obviously the other attachments may work well, but the main pieces that are sold with this tool are ineffective. I ran to the store and purchased the 3 amp model and it worked absolutely perfect! In almost no time, I cut 7 door jambs and 4 closets. Please understand, I love Ridgid tools. I am just trying to help educate someone who is on the fence with trying to make the decision between the 3 amp and 18 volt models. Thank you for reading this. I hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid, flexible, convenient tools Nice addition to my kit. I've got all three consoles now: the 12v, 18v and 4-amp corded "thru cool." I can't tell for sure if the 18v offers much more power over the 12v, but it sounds like it drives the oscillating heads at a different speed (it emits a deeper-sounding hum than the 12v) and it feels like it has more oomph. All three consoles feel great in the hand and they function flawlessly (the corded unit has an even deeper hum), and now I can have two tools going (three if I'm working near an outlet) without swapping heads. The 12v is lighter so I prefer it for precision, like using the rotary cutter head with a Dremel bit. But the 18v is better for heavier work since the batteries last longer (I've got the 4 amp hour batteries from my big tools kit) and, like I said, maybe it offers more power. Big picture: the Jobmax system is versatile and fits in my closet, so I end up using it more frequently than my larger tools, especially for quick tasks. But it's not as powerful as my dedicated tools. Besides convenience and versatility, the other asset of the Jobmax tools is their lighter weight. I'm able to use the Jobmax one-handed, which came in handy (sorry) recently when I used the reciprocating saw head (on both the 12v and 18v consoles) to cut up branches from several trees I had felled with my real recip saw. I had to hold the wrist- and thumb-thick branches with one hand to steady them while wielding the tool with the other hand. I could not have done that with the big recip, which requires two hands to safely operate. (I tried, but the branches just jiggled back and forth.) So I needed both tools for the job, but the Jobmax is more useful for routine pruning, so if I were going to buy one recip, I guess that would be it, and if I were going to buy one console, I'd probably go with the 18v. Bottom line: I enjoy using these tools and now that I have them I think up repairs when in the past I would either have paid someone to do the work or spent all weekend on something that now takes a few hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIYer, or PRO Extradonaire This tool is awesome, and gets the job done. This tool cuts drywall, wood, metal, steel, etc. For those tight places and corners; this is what you need in your tool arsenal. The different heads for this tool are a little pricey, just a heads up. You can't go wrong having this in your shop or on your garage work bench. I strongly suggest going with the 18V 4.0 battery for those big to grueling jobs. Another awesome and stellar tool by Ridgid. Keep 'em coming !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, Light to Medium Duty Tool I have the complete Jobmax Multi-tool Package. I Started with 12volt console which are Very Light duty and burn out with little use 18volt was Major Improvement, Air and Electric console work well. Attachments work well, with 18volts has adequate power for most jobs. Ridged Warrantee is useless, I've burnt out a few 12Volt Batteries and consoles then when you go to ridged site all the battery and tools you register are missing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good tool. I've used this tool for the multi tool cutting and jigsaw. It has more than enough power for those features. I've read some reviews regarding lack of power for the sawzall attachment but you should probably use an actual sawzall for something where a sawzall is needed really. I've had great runtimes with both attachments but I am using the 4AH batteries. Using the multi tool takes a little getting used to when making cuts. Now I can make fast plunge cuts in sheet rock, soft woods and hardwoods with ease. You don't really need to apply alot of pressure when cutting. Applying alot of pressure doesn't allow the blade to have space to move and push out the excess dust/wood from your cut. A side note (this isnt a knock against Ridgid but multi tools in general) for someone looking at a multi tool but not sure if they really need it..... the blades are excessively expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing multi purpose tool Used this tool too undercut door jambs and trim for a laminate job. Perfect cuts every time. Loose trim was a bit more difficult to get thru but this tool still accomplished that. Also used this tool to enlarge the openings thru drywall for the receptacles and it worked flawlessly for that. This saw is much more safer and effective than my 6 inch Roberts jamb saw

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use it more than I though I would I actually use this more than I thought I would. It is not the tool you want to use to cut a sheet of plywood or large cuts but it works great for tight places and day to day little things. I have used it on wood, plastic, metal and it takes a little time but works great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still better tools for the job. The idea of combining cutoff wheels, drywall saw, PVC cutters etc... into a single tool is nice but the tools meant for these jobs do a much better job. Its very slow to cut any metal or other hard material. The vibration will make you hand numb before you can even cut the head off a screw. It does work well for plunge cutting but it very difficult to control while cutting wood and half circle blades don't go deep enough before the head hits the material you are cutting. The longer blades are not good for cutting harder material and if you try they seem to shake loose from the head. It's still a useful tool. I already had Rigid tools so for $70 its worth putting in the tool bag. The saw attachment works well if you left you sawzall at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, works as expected. This is one of those tools that the 4 amp battery (about 100 Dollars at HD) will work MUCH better with. It is not sold with a battery, if all you have is the kit 1.5 or 2 amp hour batteries, do yourself a favor and get the 4 amp if you intend on doing any hardwood, or want extended sanding, grout grinding, etc capacity. Also, the smaller batteries will overheat, and require time to cool before they charge. This is a tool that takes a light-to-moderate touch, push too hard and it will just stick the blade and vibrate in your hands. But it will reach where no other saw type (I know of) can, where you otherwise would be using a chisel. I've done construction, repair, and remodel for over 35 years, and finally came across a job where this was the only practical tool that could make the cuts I needed (And saved my expensive chisels from nails and screws).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around tool with multiple uses This Job Max is one of the most useful tool a person can have. It fills a unique void where other tools fall short. For any cutting needs, tight areas and home repair work of any kind, the Job Max is wonderful. The 18 volt battery provides a powerful source of long term energy and the best part is Rigid tools are guaranteed for life including the battery. That feature alone makes them stand above the rest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must own I think this is a most own tool. This is my first tool of this kind and was shocked of the convenience and ease of use. You can get in tight places that are not always easy to reach. The tool free quick connect & 18 volt battery simplifies and speeds up jobs. This tool seems well built but the quick connect is plastic and I wonder how it will hold up over time. I am anxious to try some of the other heads and love that you can interchange them. If you don't have it. It is not that expensive and well worth the money!
