We’re sure you’re familiar with RIDGID’s power tools by now, but did you know they also make a few hand tools? We were specifically impressed with their aluminum pipe wrenches — great for working on pipes over your head where it hurts to hold the wrench up.
The aluminum RapidGrip comes in two sizes — a 14″ and an 18″. The smaller one can handle up to 2″ pipe or 1-1/2″ fittings while the big one’s good for 3″ pipe and 2-1/2″ fittings. The small one weighs just 2.1 lbs.
Street pricing for the 14″ starts around $40, and the 18″ starts around $70. They’re — not surprisingly — more expensive than steel versions. That’s a lot of aluminum!
