Ryobi’s new 18V ONE+ JobPlus base handle (P340) comes with an oscillating multi-tool attachment to meet a variety of home improvement cutting, sanding, and grinding needs. Not only that, the Ryobi JobPlus is a Ridgid JobMax-compatible base handle!
Ridgid currently offers a corded JobMax starter kit, and a 12V cordless JobMax kit that we reviewed and found to be quite nice. This new JobPlus is compatible with all of Ridgid’s JobMax tool heads, which include a multi-tool attachment, auto hammer, right angle drill driver, impact driver, 3/8″ ratchet, and a new jigsaw attachment.
Although the JobPlus is powered by an 18V ONE+ battery, it runs at the same no-load speed as the cordless and corded JobMax base handles. It is too early to tell if this version provides more or less powerful than the two Ridgid base handles.
Ryobi ONE+ JobPlus and Multi-Tool Features
- Universal multi-tool accessory adapter that allows use of other brands’ accessories
- LED work light
- Multiple-position tool head (like the JobMax tools)
- Variable speed trigger
- “MagTray” magnetic holder for screws and bits
- 0-20,000 orbits per minute motor (no load)
- 2.15 lb weight
A Ryobi 18V ONE+ battery and charger is required but NOT included with the starter kit. The package does include the P246 JobPlus base handle, P570 multi-tool head, wood/metal cutting blade, a segmented saw blade, sanding pad with 5 pieces of sandpaper, allen wrench for blade change, universal accessory adapter, manual.
Even though the JobPlus starter kit does not come with a battery or charger, it is priced accordingly at $70 – an incredible bargain for existing Ryobi 18V ONE+ tool users.
A huge thanks to reader/twitter follower @SKISWM for the heads-up about the new tool!
