            Broke on 3rd Use
            Collet threads on spindle stripped out after 3rd use. No, i was not tightening this as hard as possible. There is no torque specification from Ridgid for tightening the collet. The manual only states to "tighten collet nut securely." It also warns "If the collet nut is not tightened securely, the bit could come out during use, resulting in possible serious personal injury." The spindle is integral to the motor assembly, not repairable. Wish I hadn't neglected to do my Home Depot warranty.

              PLEASE READ!
              I really liked using this, for the cordless/hoseless convenience. I bought the random D/A sander at tha same time, & it's harder to control. I used this sander a LOT, & though it has held up well, it KILLED 2 OF MY 9AH BATTERIES!!!! I decided to open both after I realized I hadn't registered them(dumb), & the Mosfets inside were broke off at the terminals. I'm absolutely sure that the vibration of this sander is the cause. I have several other Ridgid tools, that I've used a lot also with no problems.

                This is a great all around tool. The three speeds are a must with a battery operated tool. With a battery operated sander it weighs a little more then I'am use to but the mobility of this tool is a plus.

                I planted a 3/4" auger bit in a 2x4 laminated benchtop and wanted to salvage the bit. Excuse to buy a new tool. This hogged out the material efficiently. Easy to control, and the dust port was solid with a 2-1/2" hose and adaptor. The bit was easily removed from the collect after use. I am pleased with the value of this tool.

                I'm an admitted Ridgid tool fan.. But I debated on weather this sander was worth the costs since it's a good bit higher in price over a corded model. Currently on sale for about $70 US. But I had a lot of sheet sanding paper I recently picked up so thought might as well give it a try since the wife wanted me to sand down a item so she can refinish it. Put the 80 grit that it came with on it and a 3 AH octane battery and went to town removing a old finish and stain job. This along with the belt sander make a pretty quick job at removing the old finish. Now just remain with the areas that have to be hand sanded due to curves on the wood. Was impressed with the sander. Dust collection was outstanding as I emptied the bag full of dust in the trash instead of having to blow it all off my me and the project.

                Powerful and compact cordless router. I was using a diablo .5” rabbeting bit and it cut through pine with ease. I didn’t get to try it with an octane battery yet but it still works great without one. Only flaw is the micro adjusting dial slips when using the router. I had to hold the dial so that it didn’t move when I was routing. Might call ridgid to see if that is a concern or if I wasn’t using it properly.

                I have been using Ridgid tools in my shop for some time now and I know the quality and innovation that they bring to the table in their product line. It is great to see improvements over time as they develop their tools. I own the previous model to this one as well as some other small routers and I am pleased with this new Octane platform. The addition of the dust port adapter and the Octane efficiency is a great step ahead of the Gen5X. I was worried that the dust port would pop out easily with a hose attached but, it locks in with the router base and stays put even with a larger 2-1/2" hose attached. If you have the previous model, the ergonomics are the exact same and you cant tell the difference in a blindfold test. This is a great little router for easy one handed work and even larger hardwood jobs. I can put a 1/4" round over on maple, oak, cherry, and walnut without issue.

                  Same amazing CORDLESS trim router with more octane power and dust collection! I mean at the end of the day, you just can't beat having a cordless router. I find that I use the cordless router all the time. I have had a lot of experience with the previous model and still love having it. It's been good to me these last couple of years, and now I am confident that this new model will be super helpful in addition to my other router for multi uses in and around my shop. Already right out of the box I can "hear" that it sounds like it has more power than my previous model. The tone is a bitter higher for sure. The dust port is nice too and worked well attaching it to my shop vac with the small hose I use for my miter saw (it is not the same diameter hose that comes with the shop vac but a smaller one I picked up at a tool show one year). I was using it with a 3ah Octane battery and with the hose attached it felt nice and balanced while using the router and even allowed my hand to sort of rest on the chute. I have smaller to medium sized hands and think it fits well; I would be interested to know if someone with large hands felt the same. Either way, its great! If I had to change anything it would be designing it to where you didn't have to remove the base plate in order to install or remove the dust chute, but I plan on leaving mine on so it doesn't matter to me. Also, knowing that the base plate sits on top of where it connects, I guess I know it is not going to pop off with the weight of the hose pulling on it. All in all, I am very pleased with it so far. I know it's a fairly new model and I haven't had a lot of time to work with it yet, but if it serves me like the previous model has, then I am confident this one is going to rock too!
