Ridgid is known for having the most advanced and longest lasting press tools on the market. They revolutionized press tool technology with their release of the RP 350 Standard Press tool back in September 2020, and they are bringing that same technology to their newest release: the RP351 Press Tool. This is Ridgid’s first standard series in-line press tool, and it definitely lives up to the high standards that Ridgid set for the rest of their other tools.

This is Ridgid’s first standard series in-line press tool, making it their most versatile and adaptable model yet. The in-line shape of this tool allows you to fit into tight or hard-to-reach places and gives the user more control over the tool. The grip handle on the RP 351 is more forward, closer to the jaws to increase its balance if you’re reaching into a tight space. There is a narrow handle for easy control over the tool and a firm grip. One of the most significant features of the RP 350 Press Tool that is being carried over to the RP 351 is the endless 360-degree swivel head, which allows you to get the perfect angle every time.

Along with the new design benefits, the runtime of the RP 351 press tool is unmatched. The durable brushless motor is capable of over 100,000 press cycles with no scheduled maintenance necessary! That means you no longer have to worry about shutting down your tool for recalibration when you need to use it. When paired with Ridgid’s 2.5Ah and 5Ah batteries, you can accomplish up to 352 presses per charge, which is a 20% increase from the competition.

This tool is just as strong as it is smart. It comes equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, anti-theft protection, and location tracking to keep your tool safe. You can also conveniently track cycle counts and see where the tool has been used through the Ridgidlink app on your mobile device. The RP 351 is compatible with all standard series jaws, rings, and actuators from Ridgid, allowing users to press 1/2″ to 2″ pex, 1/2″ to 4″ copper and stainless steel, or 1/2″ to 4″ carbon steel.
