Ridgid has announced that they will be launching 23 new cordless power tools and batteries in 2023.
Of the 23 new tools and accessories, “10 will be all-new solutions never before offered.” The count also includes all of the new cordless outdoor power tools that were previously announced late last year.
To start off, Ridgid is coming out with a new 18V cordless track saw, which they first teased about 2 months ago.
The only information Ridgid has provided about the track saw so far is that it can cut up to 370 ft per charge with a 6Ah Max Output battery.
The new Ridgid cordless track saw is also advertised as delivering “corded cutting performance” and “professional accuracy with included 55-inch track.”
Here’s the list of new cordless power tools coming to the Ridgid 18V Brushless line:
- Track Saw (R48630)
- Jig Saw (R86344)
- Compact Router (R860444)
- 18GA Narrow Crown Stapler (R09850)
Some of these tools, such as the cordless router, replace older Ridgid 18V Octane models.
There are 4 new products coming to Ridgid’s 18V SubCompact Brushless cordless power tool lineup:
- Barrel Grip Jigsaw (R86346)
- Right Angle Impact Driver (R87730)
- 3/8″ Right Angle Impact Wrench (R8720)
- 1/2″ Right Angle Impact Wrench (R8721)
Additionally, there will also be Ridgid 18V tools:
- 18V 23GA Headless Pin Nailer (R09898)
- 18V Professional High Temp Glue Gun (R860433)
I can understand why a hot glue gun might not be included in 18V Brushless or SubCompact Brushless product families.
But why is the new cordless pin nailer engineered with a brushed motor, while the SubCompact stapler is brushless?
Ridgid is also adding an 18V 12Ah battery and a new 6-amp rapid charger:
- 18V 12.0Ah MAX Output EXP Lithium-Ion Battery (R840120)
- 18V 6A Rapid Charger (R86098)
By my count, there will be (4) new 18V Brushless tools, (4) new 18V SubCompact Brushless tools, (2) 18V tools, (7) new 18V cordless outdoor power tools, (1) new battery, and (1) new charger.
There are 4 other tools that recently launched at Home Depot, bringing the total number to 23:
- 18V Brushless 1/4 in. Extended Reach Ratchet (R866020B)
- 18V Brushless 3/8 in. Extended Reach Ratchet (R866021B)
- 18V SubCompact Brushless 3/8 in. 4-Mode Impact Wrench (R872071B)
- 18V SubCompact Brushless 1/2 in. 4-Mode Impact Wrench (R872081B)
All of the new tools will be launching exclusively at Home Depot.
