Quite a few people have been asking for Ridgid parts over the last several years. It has taken us awhile, but they are now available for purchase. We are very excited to offer this line of power tool parts, and we think that it will help a lot of our existing customers.
Most people know about the older Ridgid plumbing tools and shop vacs.
(They are great tools, and vacuums by the way.) We do not currently sell parts for these tools, as they are seperate from the electric power tool division. They are sold by Ridge Tool which in owned by Emerson. This is actually where the original brand name of Ridgid comes from, as they have been in business sonce 1923. We are looking in to the possibility of selling parts for the vacuums in the future.
We do sell parts for their power tool line. This includes drills, saws, grinders, impact drivers, planers, jointers, nailers, sanders, and routers.
The plumbing tools have been traditionally offered as a high end tool for the professional contractor and tradesman. The power tool line is aimed a little more for the high end home use and for lighter end contractor use. I don’t mean this in a bad way, but these tools were definitely not aimed for the highest end of the professional contractor market.
We are a newly authorized Ridgid service center, so we do not have a lot of experience with repairing these tools. As we get more of them in for repair, we will let you know our thoughts. Whether it be good or bad, we will try to offer an honest viewpoint of what we like about them and what we do not like about them.
As always please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions.
