48553 MegaPress Kit_4cRIDGID® MegaPress® Kits will now feature a new, blow-molded carrying case and are up to 21 pounds lighter than previous models. This makes the kits easier to carry on and off the jobsite. The MegaPress Pipe End Preparation Tools will no longer be included in MegaPress Kits, however, they are still sold separately. RIDGID Press Tools, Jaws, Rings and Prep Tools are built for the most demanding applications and are backed by the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty. In addition, all RIDGID MegaPress Jaws, Rings and Prep Tools were jointly developed and tested with Viega® MegaPress fittings.

“RIDGID strives to always incorporate customer input and feedback into the tools that we make,” said Bob Solymos, RIDGID Global Marketing Manager. “Our customers wanted a lighter MegaPress Kit configuration to help them be more agile and productive on the jobsite and we responded.”

RIDGID is the leader in steel pipe pressing technology. MegaPress is a flameless system that eliminates the need for hot work permits. Press connections can be made on a “wet” system.

The ½-inch to two-inch Full MegaPress Kit is catalog number 48553. The ½-inch to one-inch Jaw-Only MegaPress Kit is catalog number 48558. The MegaPress Carrying Case is catalog number 48563.
