Ridgid R8223411B Jobmax Sheet Metal Shear Head

It’s been about 2 years since Ridgid added a new attachment head to their Jobmax system. That just changed with the edition of their new R8223411B sheet metal shear head.

My thoughts: this is looking like it’s going to be a great addition to ridgid’s already popular Jobmax multi tool system. Being that this head can cut a wide variety of materials it’s a good fit for a large range of users. It’s also priced very nicely at $49. The price makes it a good option for users already running the Jobmax (or Ryobi Jobplus) that don’t want to spend as much for a dedicated tool.

A big thanks to Ariel for sharing this with us!
