Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this two months a year ago. It came with a free battery promotion. Definitely not professional quality. The first thing I noticed is that the batteries ran down quickly, the amp hours are overstated. After a short time the speed setting dial fell off. The reason I bought them is the lifetime warranty. The warranty is also a disappointment. Even though rigid is sold exclusively through Home Depot, they do not honour or process the warranty and the tools must be taken to a third party. Very inconvenient and hardly worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked great until it stopped working. I bought this tool a few months ago and it worked great, the other night the on switch started sticking really badly and it completely stopped turning on. to make matters worse I tried registering the tool through ridgid when I first bought it and it would not register so now I have a broken tool and will have to pay to replace it after 4 months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from batteries do not fit well I own a lot of rigid tools, and have always been happy with them until this multi tool. The batteries fit so poorly into the multi tool that it cuts in and out of power all the time, and sometimes won't turn on at all. When it does turn on, the vibration from the multi tool eventually loosens the battery and it shuts off. Extremely frustrating to use. They just didn't design the unit to properly seat the battery. Only had it 3 months and the tool is basically unusable at this point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't turn on after 4 hours of use I bought the oscillating saw to do a small job cutting drywall. It was great for the first couple of hours and then got harder and harder to turn on. At the end of the job, I was having to use my hammer to get the saw to turn on. I ended up returning it. I'm hoping I just had a lemon as all my other Ridgid tools have been good to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Switch keeps breaking Had the old one for a long time until it was misplaced then had to upgrade to the new model. The switch is hard to turn on until about a month later it breaks. Been through 2 of these things and same problem each time. Switch back to the old trigger system cause the new stuff breaks to easily

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Second it time is break use it barely the replacement lasted 1 hour and broke again. The on off button is garbage and the speed controller will fall off. And ridgid lied to me on the phone. Do not get this one. Or make sure register it online for free repair

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome tool Does exactly as advertised . great for slicing drywall. I used it to slice off a metal clamp on pex pipe and that was far simpler than a hacksaw. I've used it for about 10 hours in total so far and its the usually reliable Ridgid product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ridged Oscillating Tool Tool works ok but the on/off switch has become sticky and is hard to move. Which means it’s tough to activate the tool. But when I do get it turned on after applying some force to the switch, it works very well.

can you use other blades beside Ridgid blades

Asked by: allan
Yes, most brands of these multi-tools use a universal type blade. You can buy blades that will fit from most of the major brands as well as go onto Amazon and get a great price buying in bulk.
