Ridgid’s RE 6 Electrical Tool is the company’s first battery-powered solution specifically for electrical contractors. The new tool offers a 3-in-1 solution for cutting wires, crimping lugs and punching electrical boxes all with a single tool. The RE 6 Electrical Tool, featuring the patent-pending RIDGID QuickChange System, incorporates a moveable collar that lets contractors quickly and easily switch between three rugged, interchangeable heads with 360° rotation: the SC-60C Scissor Cutter Head; the 4P-6 4PIN Dieless Crimp Head and the PH-60B Knockout Punch Head. The RE 6 eliminates the need to carry multiple, dedicated tools to the jobsite or completely switch from one tool to the next, which increases efficiency and maximizes productivity.

“The RE 6 is going to be a real game changer for electrical contractors looking to save time, save space and reduce the total amount of tools they carry around,” said Christopher Burton, Global Marketing Manager at RIDGID. “Plus, daily tasks are easier than ever since the interchangeable heads don’t require cumbersome dies, inserts or adapters.”
