New limited lifetime service agreement will provide free service and parts on normal-wear products.

ANDERSON, S.C. - Pneumatic tools from Ridgid will now carry a limited lifetime service agreement, which will provide free service and parts on normal-wear items, including batteries and O-rings, for the original tool purchaser.

In addition, the tools will continue to carry a 90-day satisfaction guarantee and three-year limited base warranty.

The announcement was made in conjunction with the launch of a new line of Ridgid professional-grade pneumatic tools with FastenEdge technology. All of the tools come with the new service agreement and join a line of 40 professional-grade corded, cordless, bench top and stationary tools available at the Home Depot.

"Ridgid professional power and pneumatic tools are built to be best-in-class, and the limited lifetime service agreement proves that we stand behind our products like no other manufacturer," said Jeff Dils, president of the North American Power Tools Division of Techtronic Industries Co., Ridgid's parent company.

The service agreement is available for all Ridgid handheld power tools, bench top, stationary and pneumatic tools, bought on or after April 15, and are effective upon registration of the tool by mail or via the Ridgid Web site at www.ridgid.com. All corded, cordless, bench top and stationary tools bought before April 15 can be registered for 120 days, until Aug. 12, free.
