The category of multi-tools, which accept a variety of cutting and sanding attachments, continues to grow. Now RIDGID is joining this versatile tool group with a twist: its new 12-volt multi-tool consists of a power base that accepts two different quick-connect heads. One is an oscillating head, which resembles a more typical multi-tool. RIDGID says this head will accept most multi-tool attachments for plunge-cutting, sanding, scraping and more. A second AutoHammer Head, which also installs without tools, enables the same power base to drive nails at 3600 beats per minute. Its right-angle configuration will be helpful for tight-quarter nailing applications.
RIDGID packages the multi-tool with a two-speed drill, featuring a 3/8-in. single-sleeve chuck. An overmolded grip and LED light should make this a handy little cordless drill to keep around the shop or home. A charger and single Lithium-ion battery power either of the R92234 JobMax Combo Kit tools.
Unveiled for the first time at IBS, RIDGID anticipates that this all-new kit should reach Home Depot stores this March, with a suggested retail price of $199.
