I have the ridgid 18v x4 line but want to upgrade to dewalt 20v max xr. I have no problems what so ever with ridgid, but its dewalt always loved dewalt. The one thing is that ridgid tools get hot after awhile. Dewalt tools seem a little smaller too. Also the 18v x4 sawzall does not last that long on a 3.0 battery.

I have Dewalt 20v along with 18v and will swear by them. I have done a lot of upgrading to 20v this last year and couldn't be more pleased. Love the brushless tools

No problems with the 18v dewalt and the 20v dewalt. I have had better luck with them than the Makita batteries.
I'm sure someone will have the opposite story though.

I've been using the 20v and 12 v for the past few years. No real problems to speak of. My chuck in the impact is starting to act up, but it's taken a few tumbles off the ladder.

Get some 3 ah batteries if you plan on using them a lot throughout the day.

Heck, get the 4.0ahs! Cordless sawzalls drain batteries fast
