Lifetime Warranty,difficult to do!

The last time I purchased a cordless drill from Home Depot, I tried endlessly for hours to fill out all information requested for my lifetime warranty, on line. Just when it looked like it worked, the next day I got an E-mail stating that I got some information wrong, and it did not go through. I was not happy. I tried it again and again and it would not work. I got frustrated and quit doing it. I know that I am an average person, and I have done many of these type of warranties before. My question is why do you make it so difficult to get a lifetime warranty? I have many Craftsman tools and it has NEVER been difficult to fill out warranty information needed for my life time tools.So all I have to say to any buyer is beware!!
Asked by: Pete
I have a LOT of Ridgid tools. The problem is with a breakdown in Home Depot and Ridgid. For some reason the numbers under the bar code at the bottom of the receipt don't communicate anything to Ridgid. It is hit or miss with the electronic application but if you send them a copy of your receipt by mail, you won't have any problem. I have had to call them and send pictures of my receipts almost half the time I tried submitting by electronic application. You can also call them and they will help you if you email them a photo of your receipt. I have had to do that probably three different times. That warrantee is a great asset for batteries which do eventually go bad. It is well worth the effort just for the batteries. Take heart. They are a good company with the best warrantee in the market if you can get past the occasional initial irritation. I have read some other complaints concerning the LSA but all of my tools have it because I pushed past the communication problems. A little determination will get you where you need to be.

I know, but am interested on the jig saw ridgid 18v x4 cordless. You don't have it on store, and don't deliver to PR.

How can I get one throw your website?
Asked by: Chamito
I ordered mine online delivered to the store and picked it up there. Very pleased with it. It has all of the power of my corded jig saw with the convenience of not having the cord in your way.

RIDGID 18-Volt Cordless Jig Saw Console (Tool Only) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 251.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jigsaw! This has been a good saw for me, the blade is quick and easy to change, it has an orbital feature, the base is easy to adjust. It seems to have plenty of power the first time I used it was to cut 2" pressure treated wood while repairing the bottom of a hot tub I had bought and it cut the 2" pressure treated wood no sweat, it's got plenty of power and is easy to guide around curves and bends, it works much better than my corded jigsaw I haven't even use my corded jigsaw since I got this one! Best of all I know this is $120 bare tool, well I was cleaning out an abandoned rental unit of my mothers and found it there and the exterior was in good shape, of course there was no battery with it but since I already owned Ridgid 18 volt tools and had the needed batteries for it that was not an issue for me. Got it home cleaned it up a little, got some blades for it and it runs like a champ, been running strong for over 2 years now! One of the luckiest finds I've ever had lol!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cant find find in canada?! Ive been on the hunt for this jigsaw for a while now and cannot find it anywhere in canada. Home depot is supposed to be the exclusive supplier of ridgid cordless power tools and somewhere somebody dropped the ball. On the RIDGID CANADA webpage it says the jigsaw is available in canada. When i checked online and instore with home depot it was nowhere to be found other than in the US. When i contacted ridgid through email i got a very blunt reply which basically said home depot deals with the sales and supply and if they cant get it then its not available. I love the ridgid tools i have and dont want another battery platform just for a jigsaw. Usually very empressed with ridgid but rather unsatisfied with this situation. I only gave a bad review to hopefully catch someone attention. Id be happy to write a new one if i can ever get the jigsaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridgid tools Rock!! Great addition to my cordless rdgid tool bag. Great jig saw works great. The only complaint I have is getting the tool registered for the life time warranty. For some reason the last two tools that I have bought I have had nothing but trouble getting them registered for the life time warranty. I have sent in the paper work online. Then sent it in by mail. I have called them and gave them the info over the phone. I still haven't got the tools registered for life time warranty yet. Really frustrating. I hope other people are having better luck than I am having. I like the tools and there top notch. Just the paper work has been a real pain as of lately..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Good As It Gets, top marks here. This portable is as good as the corded version or better. It shows a lot of design effort; hefts a really good weight; does not break every darn blade and cutting and visibility is the best. Blade changing a snap; and you can really direct and perfect a cut in any position and material.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent saw, needs updating After having this saw for over a year I feel I can give it a proper review. First off im professional carpenter and have used this saw relatively lightly over the past year. while it feels like it is well made and I believe it will last a while, it has a few annoyances that I feel need to be addressed. First, the dust build up in front of the blade builds up quickly, obstructing your view of the cut. It seems as though no provision was made for dust removal at all. I have another brand jigsaw that uses air from the running motor to blow all dust away as you work, so I know it can be done. Second it does not have an LED light. It may seem trivial, but in this day, almost all new tools have it and I'd always rather have one than not. It especially should considering this is not a cheapo saw. Third after a years use, the trigger sticks. I cant tell you how annoying that is after every cut to have to repress it to get it to stop. Fourth the lever that holds the saw angle tends to loosen itself up after use. Fifth while I would consider the power of the saw "adequate", it certainly doesn't come off as a very powerful saw. I know you don't need a ton of power for a jigsaw, but again, I can compare it to my other one and there is a definite difference in productivity if you are making lots of cuts. It seems to me that this saw has probably been on the market as is for a while and is ready for an update. I needed a jigsaw for my Ridgid battery platform, but if I knew there was an "X5" on the way, I would have waited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from getnjigywithit I purchased this tool about a month ago. I have the 12V JobMax jigsaw and I like both. The full size version seems a bit,heavy, but you're not hauling a cord around (big plus). The performance of the full size is as good or better than any corded jigsaw I have ever owned (with the LSA it may be the last one I purchase). I am happy I bought the full size, it is definitely a better saw than the smaller version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw to add to your collection of Rigid tools Just one of my 5 Rigid cordless power tools that are part of Rigid collection. Would recommend all the Rigid cordless tools to anyone.... I use them as a avid home renovator but no several individuals who are in the trades and they would own nothing else. Have had one battery replaced in 5 years with no hassle.... The power tools to keep in your toolbox...

I found the jig saw to be a lot heaver to handle than I thought, I also use it for projects with small kids. Also I used it one day , took the blade out stored it in bag, and the next day went to put the blade back in and it would only go in on an angle not letting it line up with the guide wheels. I will take it back to home depot and have them order me a new one ( because they do not carry them in the store ) and try again. If same problem occurs I will have to try another brand. Which would be a shame because I rave about your name to everyone. I own planners, table saws, chop saws , battery powered circular saws, 3 sets of the drill and driver sets, lights, sanders ( table top and portables, routers, clamps, etc..... with your product name on it. I thought this would be a no brainer. Also for the price of the tool alone you really should include a battery.
