There’s no denying that the Ridgid Propress RP200 delivered professional results in a compact size, contractors reliability could depended on. A professional grade, powerful ram output of 5400 lbs, delivered over 100 presses per charge in 18V however as a compact option left a little to be desired, slightly heavier and larger than its competitors.

The RP 241 uses the smaller 12V battery platform, same as the PEX-ONE tool. For Ridgid ProPress users on the 18V platform there is still the smaller press tool RP 210 ($1525-$2010) or heavy duty RP 340 ($2222 – $3169) both should remain for sometime.

Its lightweight, ergonomically improved design helps minimize fatigue and maximizes productivity. The new RP 241 model comes equipped with a 12V battery, providing over 140 crimps per charge.
