Review

This tool is essentially three pieces: battery, body with motor, and the oscillating head that snaps onto the body.
It's part of Ridgid's JobMax line of tools where you snap different heads onto the cordless tool body. Changing heads proved tricky because the tabs fit into tiny slots that are next to impossible to disengage with fingertips alone—you'll need a small flat screwdriver for the job. This mounting style led to the greatest vibration of any tool in our test. The infinitely variable speed trigger works great for setting the perfect amount of action on the tool, but it means you also have to keep one hand on the trigger, compromising comfort and the best ergonomic ways to hold the tool unless you do it two-handed. Unless you buy a kit with this tool included and a second battery, you only get one. But the battery did seem to hold a charge for a long time.
