Rated 4 out of 5 by from Precision work without the cord [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A cordless version of the ubiquitous oscillating multi-tool, this Two (2) pound (tool only) offering from Ridgid offers the same functionality as corded tools but adds the additional flexibility of not being tethered by a power cord. Given the uses that these tools are used for (detail work in a variety of positions) it is a world of difference from using similar corded tools. With 3.2 degrees of oscillation and a speed of 10,000 to 20,000 oscillations per minute and the tool-free change of blades (accessories), one will be more inclined to pick up this tool instead of hacking away at a workpiece with a chisel. Provided with a general-purpose wood blade, a segment saw blade (wood or sheetrock) as well as a quick-change detail sanding pad (the triangular shape allows getting deep into corners of, for example, a drawer. I was pleased that blades from my corded (Bosch) tool fit onto this tools arbor and, although the manual only speaks of use on wood, I tried a carbide metal cutting blade with excellent results, cutting slots in a piece of 0.13-inch steel and then removing the pieces in between to form a notch. Again, with the metal blade (not supplied) I easily cut through a piece of ¾ inch EMT (which one might encounter if there were abandoned conduits in a wall that one was cutting through. See photos for the notched steel and cut EMT. Blade changes are accomplished, without the use of a tool, after first lifting the locking lever (on top of the tool) which permits toggling the blade retainer to the open position and reversing the process to secure the blade. The tool has provision for mounting a belt hanger clip (on either side of the tool), but one is not provided with the tool. Depending on your intended use (use around the home or shop versus in the field where you want it “at the ready”) this may or may not be a useful feature. This was procured as a “tool only,” no battery, as I already have other 18V Ridgid tools and can interchange batteries. I have not experienced any difficulties using any of the 18V Rigid batteries I presently have, which represent two versions of their 2Ah battery and a 6 Ah battery. Even with the 6 Ah battery (approximately 1-3/4 pounds), the balance is quite good in any position. Ridgid offers a free Lifetime Service Agreement (requiring registration, by serial and model number within 90 days of purchase). The only thing I found inconvenient when using the tool was the speed control. While the location is ideal for being able to find the “sweet spot” while operating, the detents are on the weak side and result in inadvertently changing the speed when not intending to. Other than that, it is nice to not have to do battle with a power cord and to perform precision work that, if one attempted with a receipt, otherwise would require a lot more finish work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty tool with a strong motor makes cutting, sanding easy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The tool body is solid and fits comfortably in your hand. The multi-tool handle/grip is covered with a gray rubberized material that helps secure your grip on the tool. For precision cuts, I use two hands, one on the rubberized grip and the second supporting the tool housing in front of the variable speed dial to have greater control over the blades cutting action. The variable speed dial is located on the bottom of the multi-tool and can be adjusted during use. (Speeds 1 – 6) For me, the tool-less blade changing feature is a big improvement over my older 12V multi-tool. Just lift the Blade Release Lever, move it to the unlocked position and it frees up the Locking Clamp. The Locking Clamp slides over and lifts up to change blades. The process is easy and the Locking Clamp holds your blades securely during use. NO wiggle in the blade! The best part about this tool-less system is I can use my Bosch branded multi-tool blades. According to RIDGID, the multi-tool accepts most multi-tool accessories without the need for an adapter. The tool has a small LED light in the front of the tool that shines a light on your work surface. I usually have my work areas/surfaces well-lit for safety reasons, so the light was a nice to have, but I don’t know if I would consider it a must have feature. I used RIDGID’s new 6Ah battery in this multi-tool to test cut ½ inch plywood and 1-inch rough cut cedar boards. The cuts were clean and fast! If you use a good quality blade or accessory, you won’t have any trouble using this tool. This tool is compatible with all RIDGID’s 18V batteries. The tool comes with a “Starter Pack” of blades and sanding pad to get you going. This is a well-made tool and it comes with a Lifetime Service Agreement, simply register within 90 days of purchase for free parts, free service, for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy power tool to have in your tool chest [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Rigid18V Cordless Oscillating Multi-Tool is that handy tool to have for special situations. It's light weight and allows you to work in confined areas. A small LED light at the front of the tool aids in seeing the fine details of what you are working on. The tool comes with a sanding pad, general purpose cut blade, and a segment saw blade. The saw makes fast precision cuts through drywall, wood, and metal. The saw delivers 20,000 oscillations per minute and has a variable speed dial. The 18V battery and charger require a separate purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Rigid multi-tool is a real time saver [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Rigid 18 Volt cordless multi-tool will take on any task you throw at it. The tool heads available can do almost any task and you can change tool heads quickly and easily to adapt the tool for the next job. Since it is cordless you can get into any position with it or go to any site without the need for available power. It is light in weight so your hand does not get tired of holding the tool and the light on the head of the tool is lighting your work so you never get into the shadows. The oscillating operation never made my hand tingle so you can work longer without any hand fatigue.
