Specialty tool for a homeowner (geared towards plumbers) but seems to be the best priced power press tool available if you have some home remodeling and plumbing in your future. This will allow you to use ProPress fittings in place of sweating copper. Additionally you can buy other jaw attachments for PEX fittings. I'm in the Milwaukee battery lines but went outside of that here for a "cheaper" tool as I'm only a DIYer that is sick of sweating copper. Use code RIDG10 for discount. ToolUp is an authorized Ridgid dealer so no issues with warranty.

Plumber here. In New Jersey. We use our propress tools as much as we can.
Lots...full floor remodel which includes moving the main water line in the house. After that, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen remodel. The time saved using ProPress over sweating copper will more than justify this tool in my own opinion (doesn't have to be in yours). With ProPress you can also have water in the line near the fitting, unlike when you're sweating copper.

For clarification, when I said it was a "specialty tool for a homeowner", I am saying it's a stretch tool that many homeowners will not need. Was simply trying to share a deal on an expensive tool with the community for homeowners that may have a need (and obviously the plumbers on here as a more professional tool).

The Milwaukee ProPex does not press ProPress fittings for copper, it is a Pex only tool. The tool here is geared towards ProPress fittings (since it comes with those jaws) but also has the option to pick up an additional jaw for pex too. ​If you aren't messing with copper and just using pex then the ProPex tool is probably a great tool at 1/5 the cost.
How many fittings are you sweating to even justify the cost of this tool? IMO this is marketed more towards professionals, not homeowners.
