Rated 5 out of 5 by This tool is a life & timesaver I have been a plumber since 1987 and have had my share of difficult jobs. Such as, soldering pipes that continue to leak, or other factors that can make a job difficult. The RIDGID PRESS TOOL is a timesaver and has never let me down. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Have been using rental tool from plumbing supply,ordered the RP 340 press tool.This tool is light weight,easy to handle when working over your head,the built in light gives extra when you are in dark area`s,,swival head and the design of the tool it self really cuts down on the time of the job.The Rigid tool is very well designed.Walter from New Haven,CT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by awsome toll with great versatility The RP340 is the best out there compared to other press tools, in its versatility with other tool dies and soil pipe cutter. However for the small contractor to have the tool in the truck to use occasionally it is extremely expensive at $3000 plus November 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is portable We love this product. Do not need a flame permit to make repairs. October 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great time saver Had some problems with Apollo brand fittings, is there a reason Ridgid only supports Viga fittings October 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect in every way wish i would of bought it sooner. excellent product August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pays for it self. I bought this for a large job that would have required many hours of drain down time. I was in and out in no time and the residents never even knew the water was off. I also used it for other jobs that normally took 3 hours with this rig it took just an hour. So in my mind this tool has already paid for it self. July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is one the best tools in the trade reliable and durable The time and money you save in labor pays for the tool in no time at all. March 12, 2015
