Is this a good tool to use for removing/replacing grout in a tile shower?
Asked by: Jimbo
Got to replace the grout yourself, but it will cut the old stuff out. Personally I would use a hand held wet saw.

JobMax 4 Amp Multi-Tool with Tool-Free Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 347.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from JobMax 4 Amp Multi-Tool with Tool-Free Head Since I already owned all of the JobMax heads for my ... JobMax 4 Amp Multi-Tool with Tool-Free Head Since I already owned all of the JobMax heads for my 12-volt Ridgid Multi-Tool, this seemed like a no-brainer purchase for a rather annoying task of multiple cuts in a double-stud wall. The portability of the 12-volt is great, and I was tempted just to grab the 18-volt, but instead I opted for this AC powered tool with the THRUCOOL technology. It performed as expected-- although I question the THRUCOOL technology as it seems to transfer most of the heat to my hands. That is not a show-stopper as under a load all of these tools will heat up and I was not really expecting anything different. I ended up using about three of the heads for the project and all performed well. This a more powerful tool than the 12-volt tool (obviously) and will likely be used more than the 12-volt when I have AC available. The grip is completely different between the 12-volt and AC tools-- the AC in some ways affording more leverage. I had no issue registering for the lifetime warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had to replace my original tool, R2850 series B,... I had to replace my original tool, R2850 series B, because the cord broke right at the base of the tool. I made two attempts to repair the cord, the third time it broke I bought the new, improved Job Max. Evidently Rigid has been listening to their customers because everything that the old tool needed was put into the design of the new unit. The power cord is more supple and the strain relief section of the cord is longer and softer, maybe these two things together will keep the cord from breaking where they meet. The forward/reverse switch is mounted up front as a push-push switch you hit with your finger from both sides. The motor is beefier, more power and larger diameter (more torque?). The oscillating head it comes with is redesigned for quick change of blades. Thanks Rigid!I have just about every head made for this tool and it sure makes life easier to have several of them set up for a particular job and just have one power unit, cutting the cord mess and floor clutter down.

This is my second one of these, first one used a allen wrench to change the blade worked good for 2 years then switch stoped working . Purchased this one with the tool free blade change returned 3 in two weeks because the tool free lever thing would not engage, finally got one that worked in frustration I failed to register it, now its 2 years old and I can't engage the blade release ( poor design )

The jobmax worked great for 2 weeks then the blade detachment lever stopped releasing the blade lock. Tool maybe great for the occasional user but not for an all day user. Returned it then purchased the dewalt multi tool and have not had a single issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice vs the competition Very nice multi-tool and a great choice vs the other options on the market right now. The handling of the tool is easy. Ergonomically, it's easy to control with minimal hand/arm fatigue. The grip is also good, like the majority of Ridgid tools. The attached cord is long enough where is mates to your extension cord. I was never needing additional distance. This is something I check out closely anytime I buy a corded tool. I used it for about 3-4 hours (off and on) over the weekend and it worked flawlessly. It stayed cool (which is something I was keeping an eye on based on other brands I've owned in the past) and strong throughout the work. Changing of blades/pads is plenty easy enough. Quick and no issues there. Cuts are accurate and met my very particular expectations. The included bag is always a nice touch to protect the tool when stored. Of course the light is a must and included. In my opinion, this a nice addition to the tool arsenal that most professional and non-professionals will need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The tool works well. This is my first time... The tool works well. This is my first time using a mult-tool so not sure what to expect. The vibration is fairly minimal, it did become more noticeable after using for an hour as I could feel it in my hands. Not that it was vibrating more, just that my hands and wrist were feeling it. I used this tool to scrap off a vinyl floor in a 5 x 8 bathroom. Cut through particle board easily as well (when using a sharp blade). It has plenty of power and I'm not disappointed. The hand grip area starts to get warm after about 15 minutes of use. It never felt too hot to hold, yet it does get it very warm. I ran it full on for over an hour with a couple of short breaks. It takes awhile to cool down.
