Ridgid R3030 Accepts Milwaukee Blades?


Hi Folks:

Does anyone know first hand if the Ridgid R3030, one handed reciprocating saw accepts Milwaukee blades? I searched the forum and websites but I couldn't find this answer. I also downloaded the owner's manual but there was nothing explicitly stating that the blades were Ridgid made only so this leads me to believe that blades by Milwaukee, Lennox, etc. would suffice. But it would be nice knowing definitively before purchasing.

Thanks

Appears to use standard blades, any Recip/Sawzall blade from the big box should work

Did the tool came with at least one blade? Take the old blade and match it up with whatever brand is on the shelf. Milwaukie or Lennox are the only blades I will use. They are the least expensive.

It is confirmed first hand the R3030 takes Milwaukee and Lennox blades. The tool came with a nice carrying case and 3 blades of various lengths.
