Jan. 31, 2018
RIDGID's press booster press black steel pipe between 2.5 and 4 in. and make connections in under 25 seconds.

The only tool on the market that lets contractors press black steel pipe between 2.5 and 4 in. (63.5 and 76 mm), the RIDGID Press Booster for use with Viega MegaPress XL Jaws and Rings, builds on the power of the RIDGID RP 340, attaching to the tool to multiply its output for fast connections on larger diameter pipe.


MegaPress XL makes connections in under 25 seconds, saving time and enhancing efficiency. Simply attach the booster to the end of the RP 340, press the trigger on the tool three times, and you have a secure press connection. Hard-to-reach angles are a breeze with an actuator that can rotate 180-deg. on the press ring.


Weighing less than 22 lb. (10 kg) and coming with a built-in carrying handle and strap, the MegaPress XL Booster is designed for portability and easy transport between jobs. The primary kit includes the XL Booster, 2.5, 3, and 4-in. ring (63.5, 76, and 102 mm), and carrying case.
