In other words, it’s a much-improved cordless vacuum.

While not as interesting and exciting as Dewalt’s new 20V Max cordless stick vacuum, the new Ridgid looks like to be a notable redesign.
Home Depot has a special buy on a kit featuring the older model, for $79 with a 2Ah battery and charger.
This is just one of many new Ridgid 18V cordless power tools that are soon hitting the market.
