Customer Reviews

X4 18-Volt Cordless Jobsite Radio with ShockMount Technology is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from We want chargers! This product is excellent for job-site dance parties. It sounds great and looks cool too. But, when it's time to actually get some work done, it would be extremely nice if this radio would charge batteries. Does Ridgid plan on making a radio/charging station? They would sell like hotcakes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The mute brute This review is for the newer, Bluetooth version (since they do not list it online yet). I work in a loud welding shop and this radio can not be heard. I could hear everyone else's radio (from up to 50 feet away) over this radio. The sound quality is actually decent and free of distortion, but you just can not hear it in a real production environment. Probably fine for some trades, but not for a metalworking shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job sight radio!!! I run nothing but rigid tools so this lil guy fit right in with everything else on my trailer. Plenty of presets for your favorite stations, great reception, will run almost two full days on a rigid battery, it does have a remote that controls both radio and iPod but the iPod Dock is made for the old still iPod I use an old nano and it works great, $15 adapter from best buy and my iPhone 5 plays great as well. Only complaint is I can't charge a rigid battery when plugged in and it does not display the iPod info on main screen. But over all great radio with great sound can put in one room and can hear it in any room of the house!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs built in battery charger Sounds good and is durable, but for this price it should include a built in battery charger as well. Sometimes receptacles are at a premium on job sites and only having to have one thing plugged in can be a life saver. Was my favorite feature when I had my old dewalt set. If they would add this it would be a 5 star buy for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs Built-in Charger Radio works and sounds well however it could be better. After reading other reviews it seems that I am not the only person out there that would like to see a battery charger added. I am tired of having to have a battery charger plus the radio plugged in order to keep working, and listening, all day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built. Great radio, Wish it could charge batteries as well as play off them as it does. Only issue I have is the front display doesn't latch correct and is hard to see when sun is out. However holds up well to job usage and can pile stuff on top without harming radio.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be much better First I had the tiny little radio that came with a drill and the sound cutout every 15 seconds or so for some reason. So I spent 150 on the big job site radio and it only lasted 2 years till the screen went completely I forgot to register it so I'm screwed. When it comes to job site radios I have seen much better it works good sounds very good but doesn't last and it does not charge the battery when plugged in like most guys in my line of work you can't spare an extra 18v battery on the job site I need all my $120 overpriced batteries in my power tools because they make the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Radio, Bad Remote This is a very nice radio, there were a lot of improvements from the first generation. It has much better sound quality and looks a lot nicer. My wife said it is a lot easier for her to move around now since they made this one smaller and lighter. I like the idea of having a remote with this unit, which is one of the reasons I bought the new one, but the remote doesn't work very well. I exchanged my first unit because of the remote and have just dealt with a bad remote in my second unit. I am not happy with the fact that the 12v outlet was removed from the radio and the fact that the radio does not charge your battery while plugged into the wall.
