This heavy-duty RIDGID Jobsite Radio includes a rugged roll cage and a front compartment door to keep your iPod or MP3 player safe from job-site hazards. A convenient top tray stores small items that you can charge with the 12-volt DC receptacle.
For starters this radio is heavy. 23 lbs is not fun to pack around on the jobsite all the time. The second issue is that this stereo does not run off the battery as it says. At least i have not got it to. Sound quality is ok. compared to other jobsite radios sound quality is not that great. This radio accomodates an ipod but the jack for the ipod is not working well even when it was a brand new radio. if you own a zune or larger mp3 player it does not fit in the tiny compartment. all in all it is an ok radio. The Dewalt broke within 6 months of me owning it. I would probably go for the Bosch or Milwaukee if i had to buy another.
