While I understand that perhaps it won't be as powerful as it could be, or maybe there are some minor features I won't be able to take advantage of, will this operate using the previous generation's 4Ah batteries?
Asked by: NickNH
The tool will not perform unless you have the octane batteries. It will over heat your 4.0 batteries. So don't plan on using it without the " octane" batteries. The right angle drill absolutely drains amps. With how expensive the octane batteries are, just do yourself a favor and invest into the DeWalt 60 volt sawzall and saws.

Im a Ridgid fan until lately...you guys sucks now, nothing's available and the tools are getting weaker

Asked by: Jay
that's not true at all. in fact they are getting stronger. this is not ridgid your on it's home depot and you act like it is ridgid's site. ridgid has the strongest right angle drill in the world and you say they are getting weaker. the batteries are getting more amp hours then ever too and the newest of cells available are in them. what ever tools you have does not get weaker, if it is then take it in and get it fixed or replaced for free. also ridgid is using brushless motors that are stronger and use less energy than brushed motors. so i think your not on the level with us here. i have been using ridgid for 20 years and had one bad 12 volt drill out of the box that i kept using until it quit. it was taken care of and cost nothing to have done. if the shop you use is any good they will be behind in their work load, so yes there is a wait. you could buy another of same tool and return it after your repair is done if need be. it doesn't take 90 days to fix any ridgid tool.

18-Volt OCTANE Brushless MEGAMax Power Base (Tool Only) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22.

If the Mega Max keeps adding to its work heads this is going to be a real money maker for Ridgid. Not to mention having the full system covered by th Lifetime Warranty Coverage.

I now have the power of a corded tool in a battery powered tool. The right angle drill has no problem boring 2 1/2 " holes in 2x4's for plumbing pipes. The saw is just fantastic, so much better than my corded saw. It has lots of power and versatility. With this set up you have four positions to choose from, which is very handy. If I'm in a tight spot or next to the floor I just pull the head and rotate. The hammer drill has lots of torque and takes the SDS bits.Has a built in depth rod and 3 modes to choose from. With this system I can carry all the tools in one bag that is not only convenient, but saves precious space. The power and run times are great. Tools are very ergonomic and easy to handle and operate. Has all the great features that RIDGID provides, all backed by the LIFETIME warranty.

Leave it to RIDGID for consistently great innovation! Been using the JobMax for years and like many other pros, craved a heavier duty version. Prayers answered! This new power base is simply fantastic. Coupled with the new 9ah batt, this thing is definitely the baddest on the block!! I added the angle drill, recip saw and hammer drill options. Really easy to set up and use. Angle drill cut through joists with a big bore like it was nothing! The recip attachment feels heavier than expected which is great for demo as sometimes the 'jumping' with lighter versions cuts down on efficiency. Also helps hold the line. Used the SDS to drill 1" bores through a solid poured foundation... no problemo!! Simply Awesome!!
