Best Ridgid Gifts for Christmas 2017

Ridgid Concrete Hand Tools

Best Ridgid Tools for Christmas 2017Why we’d love to have it:

Ridgid moves into the hand tool market for concrete and masonry with a combination of durable build and attractive price point. One of the big complaints they go after is a common failure point – the handle. By designing a shaft that goes all the way through the handle, it strengthens it up significantly. It’s similar to the reason you want a full tang handle on a knife. Sooner or later, the partial tang will start to break through the handle. Ridgid’s handle avoids that.

Masons are the target for these tools.

Ridgid 18V Brushless Compact Router R86044B

Ridgid cordless trim router pullWhy we’d love to have it:

Cordless and router only go together in a sentence when we’re dreaming about the future, right? That’s not the case any more thanks to the Ridgid 18V Brushless Compact Router. Its foundation is Ridgid’s popular corded trim router, so there’s a familiar feel to it. This router definitely gives me as good a cut as I expect from my corded model. So long as you’re doing smaller trim jobs—roundovers, detail trim, laminate trimming, etc—this tool is going to rock your world.

Get it for:

Get this one for the Pro carpenter who’s ready to cut the cord on a trim router. If he doesn’t already have some Ridgid 18V tools, you’ll need to grab a battery and charger for him as well.

Ridgid Gen5X 18V Brushless Impact Wrench 01Why we’d love to have it:

Ridgid packs 450 ft. lbs. of torque in their Gen5X 18V Impact Wrench for an impressive $149. You’d think that comes with significant trade-offs, but that’s not the case. You get Ridgid’s brushless motor and a 4-speed gearbox along with conveniences like their Tri-Beam LED surrounding the chuck. Ridgid does a great job of delivering a lot of performance while keeping the size very manageable.

And with a new drill/driver to supplement the class-leading impact driver, you’ll have a new go-to kit to get the work done backed by Ridgid’s Lifetime Service Agreement.

Ridgid Brushless 18V 1-Gallon Air Compressor R0230

Best Ridgid Gifts for ChristmasWhy we’d love to have it:

The biggest trade-off in moving from pneumatic to cordless nailers is you have to carry a lot of extra weight in the tool. That shouldn’t be a surprise since it’s still an act of compressed air that has to drive the nail and you’re packing the whole system into the tool. Ridgid gives trim nailers the ability to cut the cord without gaining a lot of weight with their Brushless 1-Gallon Air Compressor. It runs best on two Ridgid 18V batteries, but you can switch to one if there’s you just need enough juice to wrap up the last bit of work at the end of the day. And you don’t have to give up your lightweight nailers to use it!

Get it for:

Trim carpenters and even some DIYers will appreciate the cordless convenience.
