Why doesnt it work out of box?

Am I missing something? Right out of the box it doesnt do anything but shine the light when pulling the trigger.
Asked by: Matt
There could be two solutions. The battery may not have a sufficient charge to run the tool it takes more power than the light. Charge the battery till you see the green light on the charger. It may be possible you did not have the work head fully installed. Don’t forget to go online and register your tool and battery to ensure your Rigid lifetime warranty

I am thinking of purchasing this little tool for small jobs. The problem that is keeping me from pulling the trigger is this warranty registration. Can I have a comment from Ridgid please. What is the problem? Seems like it should be a straight forward process to me. Looks like there is lots of problems registering for warranty.
Asked by: Butts
I have not had any problems registering on Ridgid site. The tool has performed as I expected and hope to do many more jobs with it.

JobMax 12-Volt Multi-Tool with Tool Free Head is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 176.

They well built and perform well. I do have a major problem with their easy to register Lifetime LSA warranty. I now own 5 Ridgid tools and thus far have only managed to get one tool registered with them. All submissions are rejected as a matter of practice and everyone gets their standard “ Action required, we’ve encountered a problem when cross referencing your product or proof of purchase information with our records and are not able to upgrade your products to LSA statis “. It doesn’t matter how complete or valid your submission is you can count on receiving this same email time and time again. Pretty unscrupulous and down right dishonest. They have no intention of honoring their warranty and try to discourage you from obtaining it. This alone makes me not want to buy anymore of their tools. I’m not alone with this problem. Read other people’s reviews and you will see a pattern emerging. Do a google search of reviews on their LSA warranty and you will see what I mean.

Returned that one for another and got the multi-head on, with much effort, but could not get it off! Returned the second one and tried another one in the store - again, got the multi-head on (with much effort) and could not get it off. Called over a store associate and explained the problem, so he tried and was also unable to remove the head. He pulled that unit to return to the vendor, and we took ours to the customer service counter and got our money back. I already own the corded model, and the head installs and removes easily, so I'm assuming it must be a manufacturing flaw in the main tool body. It may work beautifully - unfortunately, we will never know. We would be interested in purchasing this item if and when the problem is resolved, but not until then.

This is not a pro-level tool and as long as you don't expect to do more than small home projects you will be satisfied. The upside is that it is small and light, easy to use and affordable. I used it to cut a couple of holes in cabinets and drywall for installing some electrical boxes. It was fast and accurate. I have not purchased any additional heads, but the possibilities are interesting.

No tools.Love that you can choose the direction of the head. Very helpful in tight situations. I bought the reciprocating saw and drill and enjoyed the same benefits. Anxious to use jig-saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ridgid JobMax is a great tool. The only problem... The Ridgid JobMax is a great tool. The only problem I is see with it is the lack of better cutting tool bits.The blades used for drywall cutting are slow. It is not comparable to the circular cutters in speed but the huge benefit of using the JobMax is the reduced amount of drywall dust!!!

I finally wore the old one out. I have the 120 volt unit and the 18 volt unit but I like the compact size of the 12 volt model. The tool less head makes it so much easier to change blades.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh This is a great multitool for quick jobs. If you plan on using it for more than a few minutes then buy a corded model. This overheats so fast its not practical for continual use. I had to flush cut a piece of trim and it kept over heating.
