Rated 5 out of 5 by from The MegaMax is just that - Big power in a multi-purpose tool The MegaMax is just that - Big power in a multi-purpose tool. The octane system gives this tool base all the power you'll need to use the 3 different tool heads available for it. With LED ready light and audible alerts to let you know when you are locked and ready to go. Impressive foundation for this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic new innovation! Get rid of the cords The Megamax just destroyed the corded hammer drill, right angle drill and the sawsall! This tool is revolutionary! I purchased the Megamax a while ago and have been completely impressed with the power of it. It's build quality is professional grade and meant to handle the abuse of everyday use. It's heavy duty construction will hold up to the pounding of commercial trades use. Pair this tool with an octane 6 amp hour battery and it comes to life! Get one of these and you will not regret it! I highly recommend this tool

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This MEGAMax Power Base opens up a whole new realm of cordless opportunities! This MEGAMax Power Base opens up a whole new realm of cordless opportunities! I love the flexibility of using a recip saw, SDS Hammer Drill or Heavy Duty Right Angle drill! Any of Ridgid's 18V batteries will fit this unit, but I recommend the new 6 amp hour Octane battery when you're working with this kind of power and torque. I really love the ease of use with this unit. It's a quick twist and snap and you're locked and loaded for production. This Base is intuitive and sets torque and RPM, based on which head is attached. When you roll with this tool, you really feel like you have a corded tool in your hands, in terms of girth, durability and extreme torque! I have used the DeWalt FlexVolt system and for a fraction of the cost and without changing battery formats, MEGAMax is a great choice! Check out my reviews of the individual heads!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible tool I had a lot of floor tile to remove and picked up the MegaMax with the rotary hammer attachment. Holy cow this thing is a beast. It tore through the tile and made quick work of the floor. It is like the jobmax on streiods! The base is built for everyday use and will hold up to everyday abuse. I’m so impressed with the power this tool puts out! With a 6 amp hour battery you can kill this thing. All I can say is this tool is a BEAST!

How does this unit compare (power, etc.), with the standalone brushless SDS?

I like the idea of one motor,multiple tools, but I can't slack on power, and efficiency#
