Over at Home Depot, this Ridgid 18V “special buy” oscillating multi-tool kit is priced quite low, at just $79.
It seems that Home Depot launched this Ridgid 18V cordless oscillating multi-tool kit, R86241K, for the 2021 holiday shopping season. I don’t recall ever seeing it in person, but I noticed the promo-priced kit online throughout the season.
There’s no shortage of cordless oscillating multi-tool kits to choose from. But what if you just want an inexpensive kit? This Ridgid cordless OMT kit seems like a really good value for the money.
It features a tool-free accessory change system, variable speed dial, and on/off power switch. It has a 3.2° oscillating angle and operates at up to 20,000 OPM.
The kit comes with the tool, a sanding pad, sandpaper, segment saw blade, flush cut blade, charger, and 2.0Ah battery.
At $79, Ridgid’s kit looks to be a good value. According to the specs, you get a couple of starter accessories, and a 2Ah battery.
During holiday shopping seasons, Milwaukee’s M18 cordless oscillating multi-tool promo kit can be found at select retailers for $99. Dewalt usually has two $99 brushless oscillating multi-tool kit promos – a 20V Max Atomic kit with 2.0Ah battery, and a 3-speed XR kit with 1.5Ah battery.
While the Ridgid doesn’t seem very exciting, it seems like a really good deal. I hope this is a permanent addition to Ridgid’s 18V lineup.
