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 4.0 out of 5 by 146.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Few uses before it gives out 3rd Rigid tool I've had, and 3rd one that has broken multiple times. It was after its motor gave out the second time that I decided it will be the last time I buy a Ridgid tool. The removable housing is extremely loose fitting and I found the trigger often had to be pressed extremely hard to activate. Batteries died out quickly and with any kind of moderate work, the thing breaks and gives up entirely. Whats the real use of a lifetime warranty if you have to keep going and getting it repaired every month or two? Get the Fein, you won't have any problems with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent for most jobs - but count the contents I bought a 12 volt because the 18 volt was out of stock. This unit was brand new & sealed. Got it home, and no accessories were packed from the manufacture. No blades, sand paper, etc. I called the # and they mailed me what was missing: Took a week. Thank goodness I had extra blades from a previous multi tool, or that would have been a 24mile round way trip to HD, and an hour+ out of my workday ($85). About the performance. It's decent. I needed it to cut 3 door jambs (tiling job). The unit overheated twice, and stopped working multiple times. The 12volt IS NOT GOOD for any sort of tough jobs. I'll be returning this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and handy The Ridgid Jobmax 12 volt multi tool is very handy and so versatile. My husband used this tool for a number of projects this past week. He needed to sand some small pieces of wood, and this tool was perfect for the job. The 12 V battery charges for 30 minutes which is perfect for small jobs. The tool is well made and holds up to the reputation of the Ridgid tool brand. This multi tool comes with a wood or metal cutting blade, a saw blade, and a sanding pad with several pieces of sand paper. The orange storage bag makes this tool complete. The paper manual gives clear directions for proper operation. Tool heads can be positioned in four different ways. This product has a 3 year warranty with lifetime service after registration online. This is a tool for every handy home carpenter.It is a tool for smaller jobs and tight spaces. Just perfect and a great Father's day gift.

This is the 3rd one purchased, I returned the first that broke and gave away the 2nd to a helper that could not afford one. YES trying to register the third one is the pits just like the others. I am not Mr. Computer but somehow I manage with other product warranties. The effort to try and to get covered is not worth the effort ($100) a new one will cost to replace it plus all the time lost and headaches sending it to a repair facility. HOME DEPOT FIX IT!

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incredible!! I don't believe how bad this item is. I was very impressed with the design of this tool and wanted to purchase it. However, it was beyond disappointing on my first job. I was using it to cut 5/8" drywall. I barely got in 3ft of straight cutting and the tool drive stopped working. I called Ridgid for help and was told to return it for a replacement. Extremely disappointing tool. Fortunately I had a Bosch Multi X tool for back up. I had vowed not to buy anymore Ridgid after all my Ridgid batteries died on me and they weren't warranted. I should have followed my gut. Oh well.. next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cordless JobMax Wins Big I am restoring some 75 year old metal factory windows and needed a cordless tool to dig out the rock hard glazing compound when replacing panes. With some trepidation, I after reading the reviews on this page, I went ahead and purchased this tool and an extra battery.. Man, am I ever glad I did. I used it with the 3/4" Dremel metal cutting blade and it dug out the glazing compound cleanly and easily leaving a smooth clean surface. I didn't baby the tool but jammed it pretty good and it performed splendidly. Battery life was good, one battery was on charge while the other was in use, the result was lots of power and no waiting. Since purchasing this tool jobs keep popping up where it proves indispensible, I wonder how I got along without it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Customer Care Warranty was not being honored, which doesn't make sense especially during their lifetime warranty campaign.....
