          Used it to get between the roof 2 x 12 trusses to sister in two more 2 x 12, one on each side of the cracked one. Drilled 1/2" holes through all three to bolt the trusses together. Plenty of power and the angle drill fit nicely into the 13" inch space between the trusses. JR

            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!

              100% crazy, insane, powerful awesome, Megatron looking beast. This does it all, and it does it better than anything in it's class. The Octane power is no joke, and will not only compete with corded versions of the same tool, but in many cases, beat them. This new MEGAMax is three tools in one, and the most versatile piece of equipment that I have ever owned. First, the angle drill is seriously powerful. I know this phrase is over used, but it really does do through wood like a hot knife through butter. So simple to attach, and with for different positions, the ergonomics of this machine is awesome. The rotary head is an all out crazy beast. You can set it to regular drill mode, or insane earth shaking mode. I will drive a 3/4 inch hole into concrete in seconds. It takes an SDS bit, but very easy to use the quick release on this unit. The recip head is definitely the life of the party. 3,100 spm, and it will eat anything you put in front of it. I used it to cut through a 2x2" piece of solid metal, and it never slowed down. Even when I put my full body weight on it, I could not get it to show signs of weakness. As mentioned, the heas take a second to change out, and the different positions you can put them is are just awesome. Not to mention, the other cool features such as "Lock On" that allows you to chisel continuously without having to pull the trigger the entire time. It also has a safety/attached indicator on this monster. As for weight, it's a little bigger/longer than the regular OCTANE recip, but its an all out beast. You really need to try this to understand how awesome it really is!

              When Ridgid can take up to 5 months to get your tool repaired, it’s great to have a back up.

              This item was returned. It connected to the rotary hammer attachment head that I purchased three times. After that it would not make connection and it would just beep at me. I returned it and bought the actual Ridgid Octane rotary hammer.
