Ridgid 18V Handheld Vacuum R8609021B

The Ridgid R8609021B handheld vacuum uses a single 18V battery for power. It boasts 40 CFM and 24.6 inches of water lift, which was great when we used it in the shop for cleaning up sawdust and other light debris. We especially liked the 2-stage filtration system with a removable and washable filter. This vacuum comes with an extension wand so you don’t have to bend down or grab a ladder to clean hard-to-reach places.

Ridgid 18V Handheld Vacuum R8609021B Additional Highlights

  • 1.5 pint (0.17 gallon) transparent tank
  • Rubber gasket and one-way flap keep debris inside the tank
  • Compatible with all Ridgid 18V batteries and chargers

Price: $59.97 for the bare tool and $99 for the kit, including one 2.0Ah battery and charger. Both options include a 21-inch extension wand, utility fan nozzle, crevice nozzle, and crevice accessory clip. Ridgid backs your purchase with a 3-year warranty.

Ridgid 6-Port Sequential Charger R86096

If you’re a Ridgid battery collector and avid tool user, this Ridgid sequential battery charger might be just what you’re looking for. It charges any 6 Ridgid 18V batteries sequentially (one at a time). Ridgid claims that it charges batteries twice as fast as the R86093 single-port model. All six ports have an LED light charging indicator. There’s also a single battery port selector button that gives you the option to select which battery you’d like to charge first.

Ridgid 6-Port Sequential Charger R86096 Additional Highlights

  • Temperature delay technology ensures batteries don’t charge if they’re too hot or cold
  • Energy save mode lowers energy consumption
  • Carrying handle
  • Keyhole hangers for wall mounting
  • 6-foot power cord

Price: $139 for the bare tool, with a 3-year warranty included.

Ridgid 18V Cordless Hybrid Jobsite Fan R860721B

Hybrid power can give you loads more versatility than just one power source. That’s what the Ridgid 18V hybrid jobsite fan has to offer. It’s one of the best jobsite fans we’ve tested for value and portability. An 18V 6.0Ah Max Output battery gives you 7 hours of runtime on high. If you want all-day use, you can plug it into an extension cord, too. Ridgid tells us it offers up to 670 CFM, which is 40% more power than their last hybrid jobsite fan.

Ridgid 18V Cordless Hybrid Jobsite Fan R860721B Additional Highlights

  • 210° rotating head
  • Flexible carrying handle
  • 6 speed settings
  • Compatible with all Ridgid 18V batteries and chargers

Price: $79 for the bare tool. Battery and charger are sold separately.

Ridgid R4550 Portable Jobsite Table Saw With Folding Table

Ridgid’s newest table saw has a rack-and-pinion fence system which was designed to eliminate some squaring issues and make your adjustments faster. The 15-amp motor of the Ridgid R4550 jobsite table saw turns a 10-inch blade up to 5,000 RPM. You also have a generous rip capacity in both directions— 32 1/2 inches to the right and 22 inches to the left. With a gravity-rise stand included, you get the convenience of portability, too.

Ridgid R4550 Portable Jobsite Table Saw Additional Highlights

  • Onboard tool storage
  • No-fall bevel adjustment
  • Lockable on/off switch
  • Single-step folding stand with 8-inch wheels

Price: $499 including the table saw and gravity-rise stand.

Ridgid 18V Brushless 4 1/2-inch Angle Grinder R86047

With a lower speed and 25% more power than its Octane predecessor, tough cuts and grinds are easier for the Ridgid 18V brushless 4 1/2-inch angle grinder. When using a Max Output battery, you can enhance this power, since they ensure peak performance. This tool also updated some safety and convenience features when compared to their last models, like adding a paddle switch and electronic brake, and tool-free wheel changes.

Ridgid 4 1/2-Inch Angle Grinder R86047 Additional Highlights

  • Multi-position side handle
  • Tool-free guard adjustment
  • Includes angle grinder, type 27 grinding wheel, guard, and side handle

Ridgid 18V Cordless Heat Gun R860435B

Unlike their previous product, the Ridgid 860435B heat gun doesn’t require butane or any power source other than its 18V battery. This eliminates the need for loading and disposing of gas or other fuel supplies. Ridgid also tells us that it reaches its maximum temperature of 900°F in just ten seconds. Additionally, you have a runtime of over 20 minutes when paired with an 18V 6Ah Max Output battery.

Ridgid 18V Cordless Heat Gun R860435B Additional Highlights

  • Lock-on switch
  • Flat-back tool design
  • LED light
  • Compatible with all Ridgid 18V batteries

Price: $99 for the bare tool, which includes two interchangeable nozzle heads.

Ridgid 18V Brushless 7 1/4-Inch Circular Saw R8657B

With faster cutting speeds and better power than its Octane predecessor, we reviewed the Ridgid 18V Brushless 7 1/4-inch circular saw earlier this year. It dropped some weight since its last iteration too— it weighs about 0.7 lbs less than Octane for a total weight of 10.5 lbs with a 6.0Ah Max Output battery. We noticed more cut confidence, too. In our opinion, it’s more than capable of meeting the performance expectation of pro-level work.

Ridgid Brushless Circular Saw R8657B Additional Highlights

  • Cutting depth of 2 9/16 inches
  • Electric brake that stops rotation in a matter of seconds
  • Heavy-duty aluminum shoe
  • LED work light

I have a bunch of ridgid tools, I like them, but their new tools look super cheap, like something that you’d find in a fisher price tool box. terrible.

Reynold

Love ridgid

James Keith Voyles

Truly hope Ridgid comes out with a Octane framing nailer soon. That would really complete my work tool set for my occupation!

Jerry Fike

The 7/16 arbor size on the subcompact saw is a bit unusual. Home Depot doesn’t stock that size (I asked.)
