Ridgid TRUCOOL JobMax 4 Amp MultiTool R28602

Ridgid R28602 tool craze

Ridgid updates their corded Jobmax base tool now offering 4 amps of power. It also features what they call Thrucool technology which is a fancy term for increased airflow through the tool to more effectively cool the motor as it runs. According to this new tech paired with more power in the form of 4 amps, we can expect about 33% more power vs the previous 3 amp Jobmax corded base tool according to Ridgid.

The new Jobmax tool can be had paired with the Multitool attachment essentially making this a multitool right out of the box. And because it’s a Jobmax base tool, it can accept any of the Jobmax tool heads to make the Jobmax base into another power tool depending on the Jobmax head being used. When paired with the included multitool head we’re looking at 0-20,000 oscillations per minute and the variable speed can be controlled with the Jobmax variable speed trigger.

Notable features of the new Jobmax corded base besides the Thrucool design and added power, is the new slimmed down handle grip design and appears to be more comfortable to grip than before based on the pictures. Also this new model doesn’t require additional tools to change out the Jobmax tool heads meaning less downtime when swapping out Jobmax tool heads.
