Except that people here believe ridgid is this company that guarantees everything you throw at them, but again, it is not a guarantee for all fathers/husbands/friends who are given to a ridgid brand tool from home depot ridgid, make sure you properly register your tool for a lifetime warranty. You`re wrong. Home Depot fills the lifetime warranty on most Ridgid tools. Rent take a ridgid tool in the service and check the LSA and continue repair. However, we do not repair vacuum cleaners of any kind, so you are correct with Ridgid`s call. So don`t expect to go to the service center and go with a new battery the same day. I don`t need to look like a primary drill, so it wasn`t a big deal for me. -The “lifespan” in LSA actually means the buyer`s lifespan. It seems that if you save the tool within 90 days and in the forms, including the original receipt (you keep a copy). However, the link below indicates that the lifetime guarantee is not a guarantee, since it is called the “life service agreement.” Here`s the link to a better deal: www.bbb.org/us/oh/elyria/profile/hand-tools/ridgid-0312-28002165 Second experiment with LSA was with an orbital disk grinder. I recorded it. After a few days, make a terribly screaming noise. I had hardly used it.
So I`m taking it to Home Depot for a warranty. When I got home to pick him up, they told me it wasn`t covered by the LSA. That it was just “dirty” and that he wanted to charge me $45 for repairs on a $60 grinder. I was pissed. They`ve cut costs. When he started screaming again a few days later, again. I threw the pose and bought a Dewalt who ran like a champion. I don`t think I`d ever buy ridgid power tools.
There was a short period, perhaps 10 years ago, when the total guarantee fell to 3 years or less, but the lifetime guarantee was reduced, perhaps in just one year. In 2009, I was looking for a new kit of drills/drivers to replace my aging Craftsman configuration. Decided to go with Ridgid because of the lifetime warranty, and I made sure to follow the steps and got the registration of the LSA correctly. After my two batteries finally didn`t work anymore, I found the “battery” hotline, I called it, and with nothing more than my name/address, they sent two new batteries to my door about a week later. I was a little surprised at how easy and grateful it was to have had the guarantee. Even the two new spare batteries are now registered for the LSA. After registration, you should receive a confirmation from Ridgid regarding its LSA program. If you already have a problem with your power tool, you can either email it or drop it off at your local licensed Ridgid service center. You must have registered it at ridgid dot com if you received it. The rigid tools are up there with Porter Cable/Hitachi/Mikita (IMO) without having to pay the best dollars (unfortunately, the control work is difficult on the tools.
I keep the high-end business in the menu and high-end workshop, but one way on the belt). Not to mention the fact that they sometimes offer a lifetime warranty on things like batteries, which is absolute GOLD. Home Depot generally hasn`t asked about battery warranty when you save your tools/stacks. For the things that need to be sent for the service, you can get started, they search for your product, find the part if it`s something you can fix yourself and send it to you.
