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
@Local275CUB I'm a low voltage tech and use the tools everyday and they break all the time. My drill is 2 years old and been in the shop 3 times. The original poster has a point. Their tools don't last like they use to and yes it has a lifetime warranty but it takes 6 to 8 weeks to get repaired. During this time you're out a tool unless you buy another one. This is a big issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from weekender tool at best this is a cool concept however this took is a joke for a serious contractor. using this everyday will fry the motor in a week , this is not a replacement for a hole hog at all. this is a good tool for a homeowner fooling around on weekends , you get 3 tools you can use around the house once in awhile when needed but, for someone who makes there living drilling holes or doing demo work stay away it will not hold up ...Ridgid has some good tools for the contractor but this isnt one of them, pros stay away

The octane system gives this tool base all the power you'll need to use the 3 different tool heads available for it. With LED ready light and audible alerts to let you know when you are locked and ready to go. Impressive foundation for this platform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerful and durable I'm really impressed with how solid this feels in my hands, for a multi tool to be this rugged and powerful is impressive. I've used the right angle drill and the rotary hammer a few times so far and they blast through anything I've put in front of it. highly recommend. I'm going to purchase a second one for my crew

I don't quite understand how the designers were able to deliver so much power in something that can be detached and changed out, but wow, I'm impressed! So far I can only speak to the recip saw attachment at this point because that is what I primarily wanted and ripped open when I got it. The recip saw attachment has amazing power and cut through my project like butter! (I guess a recip saw is only as good as the blades you have on it but with the diablo blades I got at Home Depot it was awesome). I gotta be honest, I wasn't expecting the awesome computerized beep sounds to happen with I attached the battery. That was pretty cool and felt like I was locked and loaded!

I made the mistake of not using the supplied handle but won’t make use it again without it. It’s beefy and very powerful for us tradesmen Future yard attachments? We need a bandsaw please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biggest baddest beastie of all Amazing power with the hyper lithium 4.0 batteries. Can't imagine the 9.0 octane battery convenient easy to use ergonomily sound easy to change all the heads/attachments. Robust yet user friendly.

Just when you think Ridgid can't get any better, they introduce MegaMax, a powerful beast! This is quite frankly the most powerful battery operated tool we own and is equally as powerful as many of our corded tools. The Megamax has three separate heads which are sold individually, we acquired the angle drill, recip saw and hammer drill. The torque is outstanding and the tools are easy to use , light weight and extremely powerful. Well done Ridgid, one of the best tools we have owned in a long time.
