Over at HomeDepot.com, you can now find new Ridgid JobMax starter kits that include the tools you want for less money. Previously, getting the tool you wanted to start with meant having to buy the power handle & multi-tool starter kit for $100 and a separate tool head for $50 more.
These new kits offer the power handle with battery and charger, oscillating multi-tool attachment, and a free separate add-on tool head for $100 total.
Ridgid’s JobMax family of tools is their recent foray into the 12V max compact cordless tool market. The modular system features a power handle base that can be used with various interchangeable tool heads.
We recently reviewed the JobMax system and the available add-on tool heads, and were pretty satisfied with their performance. They perform reasonably well compared to competitors’ standalone tools, and are priced well for homeowners and DIYers.
$100 for the starter package and two tool heads – the cordless oscillating multi-tool and one tool head add-on of your choice, is a great deal. Seeing how well the JobMax system has been selling, these starter kits will likely sell VERY well in the upcoming holiday shopping season.
For myself and if gift shopping for others, I would opt for the kit that includes a free right angle impact driver head.
