Rated 5 out of 5 by This tool the Ridgid RP 200-B has the best shape and features for the work I do, it fits into the tightest of spots I chose the RP 200-B because of the shape, long and slender this allows it to fit into those narrow spaces and tight spots. After using this tool I don't know if I want to solder anymore, Ridgid tools meet my expatations without a dought, I have been a plumber all my life and it is all I have ever done and I have many Ridgid tools from pipe wrenches to power heads in the plumbing trade tools, and as far as a hobby of wood working goes I stuck with Ridgid with those tools as well from circular saw, jointer, table saw and many more, I guess you could say my favorite color is orange, thanks Ridgid April 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Press Tool Just used my Ridgid RP200-B Press Tool for the first time today installing a 40 gallon power vented water heater in a new location in the customer's utility room. Easily saved two hours in labor on this one job. I will never solder another pipe again. April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I was expecting. Just not sure on durability yet as I've only owned it for two weeks but if it is like my other rigid tools I'm sure this will not be a concern. April 5, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by The product has great potential I like what this unit can do. However my unit made 4 presses and never worked again. February 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool. Very happy to have the press gun. I had worked for another company that had a few of them, and always used the press tool there. When I started my own company, I couldnt afford the tool, until there was a promotion. The only thing that kept me from using the tool and the product was the price. I would be very happy to review the product in a few months from now, and then again in a year. January 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everybody wants to use it. We bought two of these for our shop and everyone loves to use them. Very little training needed to bring even the novice employee up to speed. Sure helps out in difficult situations where an open flame would be tricky. December 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great addition. Added the RP 200-B to my toolbox to go along with the RP-340. Will get into close spaces that the RP 340 will not. Can see using it a lot for residential service and water heater change outs. November 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pro press RP-200-B The RP 200-B press tool is very easy to use. It fits into tight places. Our company also owns the RP-330 press tool. this is why we purchased the RB-200-B. We just love the time saving this tool provides us on each job we do. Another attribute of this tool is there no more dragging in acetylene tank for soldering. This eliminates the chance of accidental fire that can be caused by soldering a copper joint. Once you purchase this press tool and use it on your first job, you'll never want to see another torch again. November 5, 2015

I do not believe this tool can be used with refrigerant lines, Chilled water lines yes for pressing with the proper o-ring, This tool is for pressing copper not for welding or silver-brazing.
