Rated 1 out of 5 by from This tool shuts off constantly due to a heat sensor which is annoying. This tool has a sensor that detects its heat temperature. This sensor makes the tool to shut off and stop working constantly. It is annoying having to stop often and wait until it cools down. I have a 12 volts oscillating from Ridgid that doesn't shut off like the 18 volts do. Don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Recently started replacing my Dewalt told that I've been using for about 10 years. Decided to go with Ridgid after reading great reviews and the lifetime warranty was the deal closer. Bought the hammer drill and the circ saw and loved both do I bought the Job Max because I needed to under cut done door frames. I hadn't replaced my DeWalt recip saw yet so I picked up the recip head for this, I've done a couple jobs since then that required a recip saw, I used the Job Max and was surprised, I didn't miss my full sized saw at all. I was planning on buying the recip saw very soon, but after using this in going to wait and buy a couple other things first. I will get to the Gen5 recip eventually, but I don't need it right now, the Job Max had the power I need for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool for Renovation Work I use the oscillating head to cut in tight places. Great for cutting out rotted wood door frame sections. Many other cutting jobs as well. I have 2 oscillating heads. They have a tool-less head now which I may get. Sometimes the heads are hard to remove but they are getting a little easier now with use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I bought this tool to replace my Dremel which died too early. I found that as a cordless model it has surprising power. Very easy to use, great for trim work. I really like the variable speed as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around tool with multiple uses This Job Max is one of the most useful tool a person can have. It fills a unique void where other tools fall short. For any cutting needs, tight areas and home repair work of any kind, the Job Max is wonderful. The 18 volt battery provides a powerful source of long term energy and the best part is Rigid tools are guaranteed for life including the battery. That feature alone makes them stand above the rest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from makes jobs quicker Have found it a handy tool to bring along on jobs. The versatility with different uses saves me time findning the right tools. Making a straight on cut saves so much time when doing remodeling. The jig saw head is powerful and quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fantastic tool!!!! Once in a while I have needed just such a tool and have had to make due with something else. However, having bought a Ridgid impact driver and falling in love with it I decided to buy the JobMax. It has proved to be invaluable. Never knew one tool could do so much. I am actually looking for things around the house and shop to cut. Not sure how I made out without this great product for so long. Ridgid tools have become my go to tools. Thanks for making them great!

Can this tool be used as a masonry cutoff tool?

Can this tool be used with a masonry (stone, tile, granite) cutoff wheel to trim a 1/4 in. thick stone backsplash? If so, what is the recommended cutoff wheel?
Asked by: Greg
It can but attachment part are expensive and better use different tool with cheaper blade, unless area is small and other tools can't do it.

Battery for Jobmax??

Does the Ridgid CS1020 18V battery work with the Jobmax 18V??
Asked by: peterb
All RIDGID 18V platform tools and batteries are interchangeable. However, the RIDGID 18V Lithium Ion batteries do require their correct charger. CS1020 is a manufacturing date code on a battery, not a model ID for a specific battery. Thanks, RIDGID

Will the Job Max multi tool come with a carrying bag soon?

Asked by: DrSteve
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID! Adding a bag is always something to consider. We appreciate your feedback and will pass your idea along to our development team for possible inclusion. Having said that, we cannot give you a time table on if and when a bag will be part of the 18V JobMax tool purchase. Regards, RIDGID
