Earlier today I learned about several new Ridgid 18V Octane brushless cordless power tools that are coming out soon. The new additions add to a growing lineup of Octane-branded cordless tools, including the new Ridgid 18V MegaMax modular tool.
First, there’s a new one-handed reciprocating saw. What’s interesting, at least to me, is the angle of the tool and orientation of the grip.
There’s also a new Ridgid 18V 3-1/4″ brushless hand planer.
Lastly, a new Octane brushless 1/4 sheet sander. Ridgid also already offers a brushed motor 5″ random orbit sander and a brushless belt sander.
I’m sorry that this is all we know right now, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

And, there’s also a new Ridgid Gen5X Octane brushless jigsaw. It features a variable speed dial, variable speed trigger, lock-on button, no-tool blade changes, adjustable orbital action, sight line blower, and a “line-start” speed setting that starts the saw slower until it engages with the workpiece.
Price: $129 for the bare tool
