Customer Reviews

JobMax Auto Hammer Head (Tool Only) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product - hard to register warranty The job max tool is easy to use . I like the feel and balance in my hands while using. The biggest problem of Ridgid tools is trying to get the company to verify the LSA warranty even after purchasing at Home Depot and submitting on line and mailing (certified mail) the proper documentation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good power, but loud Auto hammer head works great for wall framing in hard to reach areas, but need to make sure you have enough clearance room for the Jobmax tool itself. No problems with nailing, other than a few stubborn knots in the wood that slowed progress. Make sure you wear earplugs because the percussion of the nail is loud.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy for smaller jobs I bought this because I also own a pneumatic palm nailer but I wanted something that I could use without the air compressor. I have this with the 12v power base to install a handful of joist hangers and large number of electrical boxes and it has worked well for both of those tasks. Like the other Jobmax attachments that I own this seems to be really sturdy and very well made although lacking a little in the power department (in this case compared to the pneumatic palm nailer). The only cons to this tool are that the head is very difficult to get on and off the power base and the battery life is not that great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tool I used this tool to sink finishing nails in bamboo quarter round in a flooring project. It works great in tigt spaces where a hammer is almost impossible to use. It's a must to use two hands though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but... Have used this at work, and it does a decent job of driving Tico nails while attaching "strong tie" brackets. However, it is not as fast as a palm nailer attached to an air compressor, and for my job, speed matters. Still, I like the Jobmax and I would recommend this tool, but maybe not this particular attachment if speed is an important factor to you, because it simply isn't as fast as a palm nailer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected While the product does attach easily to my Ryobi, the nail sizing leaves something to be desired. The actual part that drives the nails in is convex which makes it every difficult to drive 4d finish nails. ( doesn't center the nail unless you hold the nail) It may work better for common nails. I bought it to install base boards, thought it would be easier in tight spaces, which it was, but the finish nail moves around on the driving part. I actually made an sort of metal adapter that fits in the magnetic collar with a recess drilled in it to hold the 4d nail in the center. Worked pretty good if I do say so myself. You might think about making something like that for different sized finish nails. I am a above average do-it -yourself-er. Most of my work is around the home. I do more mechanical type work, motorcycles, etc.
