Questions & Answers

what kind of blades are available? Cutting metal, screws?

Asked by Bob May 27, 2021
5
Answers

In my experience, all multi-tools have available blades for every type of job. Including metal and/or screws. You just want to make sure whatever brand blade you buy is compatible with the mutli-tool in your tool stock. Or at the very least (blade or tool) comes with adapter to fit your tool. Most blade brands mention compatibility matches. Hope this was helpful!

Most of the triangle shaped sandpaper bits will fit, save yourself some money and just get an off brand. An expensive brand of sand paper( or the elusive ridgid brand) will not effect the outcome of the project.

Asked by matchewman2004 November 11, 2020

Answers

With the OMT head using balanced cutting blades I don't find the level of vibration objectionable, even when using for several minutes of continuous cutting (my longest single cutting use so far was 8 lineal feet trimming hardwood). I find the weight balance a bit awkward for sanding large areas or long duration (greater than 10 minutes), which usually makes be stop before the vibration does. I use the sander for odds and ends, or if I have nothing else with me, but if I know I will do a lot of sanding, I bring a dedicated tool.

Very easy on the head of the tool slide the release up and bend it back. Remove blade and put on new one. Make sure you hold the release lever it will spring back and get you.

Hello Jjn, We appreciate your interest in the RIDGID 4 Amp Corded JobMax Multi-Tool with Tool-Free Head R28602. This would depend on what the fascia is made out of. If it is wood, then yes. Some fascia is made out of Hardie board and this multi tool will not work for that. If you would like to discuss this question further, please reach out to RIDGID Customer Support directly at 1-866-539-1710, and follow the prompts for Technical Support. Thanks for asking! - Eve

jobmax head is garbage
I have been using the tool quite intensively and the changing lever failed me in less than 1 year. Now I cannot change the blade. Don't waste your money there unless you use the tool rarely for minor home owner work.

Made my hardwood floor repair not only possible but fairly easy. I can see this tool becoming a go too favorite in tight situations!! If it doesnt last so be it. I will buy another as needed!

overheats fast, leaking and gear issues.
Bought this multi tool a week ago from today to redo my grout and all of a sudden it started to overheat fast and spill this black stuff from the head and today the last gear stop cutting when i press the trigger all the way down. Very disappointed with this tool brand. I think $100 was a rip off.

Storage bag problem
Good tool but throw away the storage bag that comes with it. The didnt make it long enough and it bends the wire so bad when you zip it shut that the cord eventually will break and you will have to replace it or repair it. Its happens twice to me, once on this tool and my ridgid sawsaw....same problem with its bag.

The only negative about the Multi-Tool is that the Sandpaper Triangle pad (not the sand paper) did not last long around the edges. The sandpaper slides off of the triangle piece. When I used the sander, the pad got very warm. I noticed that there are no holes in the trianle piece nor the sandpaper. This may keep the pad from getting too warm subsequently allowing the sandpaper to work better. I have used this MultiTool one time.

Great tool. Only problem is that if you had to grab the back of the unit it gets hot. Does a good job cutting nails and wood using the first time. Being a RIDGID tool love the lifetime warranty.

This is one of the best tools I have seen. If you have ever tried to cut sheetrock with a saw you know the choking dust created. This little gem will do the job and create no dust. It will also cut flush with the floor and around the door. I don't know how I ever functioned without it. It makes a lot of tasks so much easier. You can cut perfect square holes in the middle of a piece of plywood or sheet rock. I highly recommend this tool for your tool chest.

I haven't had a chance to use this tool other than to check it out and get a feel for it. In the picture you see the corded power source with the newly designed multi-tool head attached, in its bag. Next to it are the other JobMax tools I have. I have the pneumatic JobMax power source and the five other heads. I have used that version extensively. All the heads fit both power sources. I purchased the corded version for 2 reasons: one, the new multi-tool head has a tooless blade change where the old one I have requires using an allen (hex) wrench and spinning the screw while trying to hold the blade in the right position and hold the tool too, is a pain; two. the pneumatic version has to be used around my detached garage. Using it in the house requires running a long air hose through an open door. The corded version feels lighter and is very comfortable to hold. The led light in front of the trigger is very nice. I have had the corded unit only a couple of months, but the pneumatic version for quite a few years. I have no affiliation with any tool manufacturer or retailer, I just really like this tool.
