Questions & Answers

Is this item compatible with the Ridgid JobMax multi-tool?

Is this item compatible with the Ridgid JobMax multi-tool?
Asked by: Khoazy
Hi Khoazy, the MEGAMax tools are a much larger version of the JobMax tools. They will not work together because of the size difference. Thanks for asking, Greg

Why is all this NEW, Big-N-Bad, industrial equipment only covered under the RYOBI-like 3yr. warranty and not the full-blown LSA, Ridgid otherwise brags on so much about, to the point of making its customers reflexively expect it on every one of the Ridgid products?
Asked by: SoberedReality
Oh TY, I see the elusive LSA notation now, where I normally look in the product certifications/specifications, it says NOTHING about the LSA, as it commonly does for other Ridgid products. It only says: UL-listing, MFG warranty, 3year warranty. One would think you'd want to promote that LSA in the initial upper listing on the right, (as I have seen it there before) thus being consistently indicated 3 times in your on-line ad. FYI: There is a picture of this particular product for the Ridgid Brushliess 4,5" grinder.

18-Volt OCTANE MEGAMax Reciprocating Saw (Attachment Head Only) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.

I don't quite understand how the designers were able to deliver so much power in something that can be detached 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 nail embedded diablo blades I got at Home Depot it was awesome!!). I gotta be honest, I wasn't expecting the computerized beep sounds to happen with I attached the battery. That was pretty cool and felt like I was locked and loaded!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a caffeinated Beaver Wonderful set up easy blade change. 4 postition head with the right blades anything is possible. Short metal cutting blade was like a hot knife through butter on a heavy gauge culvert. Choice between rotation or standard cutting is AWESOME

This is quite frankly the best and most powerful recip saw we have. Together with the Megamax base this saw will not disappoint. It is easy to use, light weight and extremely powerful, a perfect tool for any job. Well done Ridgid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real contractors friend The new megamax system is the best new tool to hit lately. The saw head fits the base like a glove with tight fitting in all 4 positions. What I mean by that is you can turn the saw in 4 different positions allowing you to choose the most comfortable position I dont know if another tool that allows that other than the jobmax (megamax little brother ). The saw is also has Tool-free adjustable shoe and orbital cutting action with a on off switch allowing you to turn off the orbital action if you want to. And tool free blade change. The octane feature is something you need to experience to appreciate. With a octane capable battery on the base it gives it a boost when it gets in a bind and keeps you working. The lifetime warranty means they stand by this design so no worries. I definitely recommend this for adding on the megamax base.

The first thing you notice about this attachment to the new MegaMax is the weight! Wow at 5lbs alone, you know it's going to handle some serious demo! And that it does. Holds the line without jumping as well. Coupled with the new power base and a 6 or 9ah battery, it's ready for any task!

I have to say that this saw puts my other saw to shame. Has all the great features that RIDGID provides toolless blade swap, open boot design, lever boot slide and orbital switch. What makes it so much better... The four position head,increased power, torque in a well designed quick change system. You can add the drill, and hammer drill to your kit and keep it all in a nice space saving bag.

The power head for these tools is a Beast! The attachment of the reciprocating saw head to the power head is very secure. The system for attaching the blades to the saw head is very innovative as well. You do not need a special tool to change out blades quickly and easily. The tool is very sturdy, and feels good to grip. I also like the tool carry bag. It is strong and sturdy. This saw has handled all of the jobs that I have thrown at it, from carpentry projects, to cutting branches out in the yard. Very good tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have!! Reciprocating saw head is a must have if you're going to adapt the awesomeness of the new megamax. If you want to really unleash the power of the base unit like no other you will need to make sure you get the reciprocating saw head. It offers all the great features of Ridgid's traditional reciprocating saw but with the option to add awesome. Yes awesome is the sound of the system twisting and locking together making a solid piece of machinery unlike anything on the market. If you don't believe me. Try it!
