Questions & Answers

Tough to control or defective? As others have mentioned, this sander seems to have it's own thoughts on where it want's to go. Mine is very difficult to control and wants to pull me in random directions in lieu of where I want to sand. My corded Ridgid sander works great, but this one is all over the place.. Is this a defect or easy repair or just the nature of the beast?
Asked by: Pav
I have this exact same issue. I came to HD.com to see if anyone else is experiencing this issue. I have a Bosch corded sander and use it with no issues. I absolutely love that ROS. I want to love this thing, but it's just all over the board and hard to control. I have let others use the Bosch and then the Ridgid and they are like, what in the heck is wrong with thing thing. Unfortunately it's a paper weight. I may call customer service and see if they are willing to work with it. Otherwise, it will just sit on the shelf collecting dust instead of making it lol!!

why does this not come with a battery too

It would be nice to have this sander to come with a battery too
Asked by: WildBill
I am glad they sell this as a bare tool because it keeps cost down, I own 17 Ridgid 18volt tools and I have 9 batteries so the last thing I want is to have to pay extra money for a battery that I do not need!

Is there a specific amp hour the battery needs to have or as long as its 18 volts, it should be fine?

Asked by: Richard
The aH is not relevant, except as it relates to the length of time you can use the tool. It is the voltage that matters, so any 18v RIDGID battery will work with the tool.

Can this use the Octane batteries? I am thinking of buying an Octane combo kit as well. Thank you.
