Hi, Teds. Thank you for your interest in the RIDGID 18V Brushless Cordless 3 in. x 18 in. Belt Sander. The maximum speed of the corded sander is 950 ft/min while the maximum speed of the cordless sander is 935 ft/min. Both sanders have the minimum speed of 400 ft/min. Additonally, the cordless sander is brushless and the corded sander is not.

Does the Roybi 18v battery fit the Rigid tools? No problem with my Roybi drill & skill saw but don't like the reviews on the belt sander. Thanks for any help on this.
Asked by: Ed
You can get an adapter to fit onto a Ridgid battery to allow it to work with a Ryobi 18V tool. I own 2. But because of the tall center piece on every Ryobi battery, YOU CANNOT DO IT IN REVERSE. A Ryobi battery CANNOT be adapted to work with any Ryobi tool.

Why are these reviews about different products? They should be for the belt sander; not jigsaws, orbital sanders, etc.

Does it come with batteries or do I have to purchase that separately?

Asked by: Norseman1020
If you only see the tool pictured at the top of the page with the price over to the right, thats what you get... Just below the price you may see an option to include a battery. I would also do a search on Home Depot for "Rigid belt sanders" , there may be other promotions with combinatioons running. I usually have to try searching multiple ways, sometimes their filters don't show all the options of what you are looking for.

I see two 18v belt sanders from ridgid. Both are $149, except one comes with a charger and battery. I've been trying to figure out a difference in the two but can't. Is there a difference or is one just the last of a promotional deal?
Asked by: Eric
Unlike some of the other colored tools, Rigid doesn't have 4 or 5 different grades of a tool. When you see a promotion on rigid its safer to know what you are getting. Some of them come out with a new tool but keep on selling (or sticking them in starter kits) the previous versions instead of closing them out.
