Rated 3 out of 5 by from It speeds up the process. I can get more work done in the day us I just purchased 5 - RP240's. I've had them just over a month and I've already had to send 2 back to the factory for service. They go into lockout mode. Ridgid repair is saying a bad board and even though its covered it doesn't take into consideration my down time or the fact that it cost me $60.00 to send it back each time. I'm hoping this is not going to be an issue with all of the others I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and compact The only thing to make this better would be if it could mega press 1”. Also if the case had spots for the mega press jaws. I love the blue tooth and app feature.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Reliability Issue Less than a year ago we ordered an RP 240 compact press and we loved it. A month ago we are cutting out a commercial water heater and getting ready to save time by pressing the fittings, and the press won't run. Yellow light is on saying that we are locked out and the manual says that that means we've gone over 32000 cycles. Now we are stuck on a job where we've cut out the old water heater have the new one in place we cant install with the fittings we brought. We rent a press tool from our local supply house and get the job done. Again we've only had this for less than a year there is no way that we have used it for 32000 cycles, and it never gave us the warning flashes at 30,000. We send the press in for service. A month later and multiple calls trying to find out when we'll get it back, we're told that the board has gone bad on the new tool. Problem is the board is on back order and we don't know when we're gonna get it back. I've always had a high opinion of Ridgid tools, but this is not acceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Bluetooth capability is helpful! Great Tool! I have the larger press gun RP 340. The RP 240 Compact, fits in tight areas! Tool is not heavy, and gives a great press! It took time for me to make the switch, from sweating copper. It's a great investment, and worth every penny! Huge time saver, and no leaks, if installed correctly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slow, not as easy to use as other ridgid pro-press products This is our 6th Pro press. It is the slowest yet. We still have the RP210, which is able to have the jaws rotate 90% more and is twice as fast on the press. We own it, but we don't feel it is an improvement as we were led to believe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After about 30 years in the industry, if I had to solder again, I'd quit plumbing. I've been using the same 340 and 210 tools for about 12 years. I had a bad 1/2" copper jaw that put a strain on the 210 so I picked up the new 240. The 210 still works just fine but the thought of having it go down in the middle of a project worried me. (I was looking for an excuse to buy a new toy) These tools are awesome and last a long time. Good work Ridgid.
