Lightweight Press Tool

The RIDGID Model RP 210-B press tool is the smallest and lightest pressing tool in the RIDGID product line. The compact-designed RP 210-B is 2 inches (50.8 mm) shorter and 25% lighter than the RIDGID compact 100B press tool.

Featuring an ergonomic design, the user-friendly RP 210-B press tool weighs only 5.625 lb (2 kg). It has 270-degree barrel rotation and a flattened top, providing greater accessibility for users making connections in confined spaces. The new press tool has indicator lights that provide feedback and safety information with an intuitive interface.

The RP 210-B press tool is the first RIDGID compact press tool to feature a lithium-ion battery, which allows more presses per battery charge and has optimum cold-weather performance with a temperature range of -10°C to 50°C (14°F to 122°F). An improved gear ratio contributes to the better performance at cold temperatures and the more presses per charge. The battery provides 1.1 A/hour, and as an option, a 2.2 A/hour and a 3.3 A/hour battery will be offered. The press tool kit includes jaws in four sizes and is compatible with all current compact RIDGID press jaws.
