Hello:
I was looking at purchasing the Ridgid JP0610 and was curious how big the box is that it comes in? I contacted Home Depot but they had no idea (no big surprise).

Thanks

I know you need a real answer, but…based on my experience it will be slightly larger than the vehicle you’re going to try to squeeze it into. Not so much that you have to take it back into the store, but just enough too big to break the dome light, crack the plastic floor piece that covers the folded seats, forcing you to tie the hatch down on a 34 degree damp day for the 45 minute drive home, make you slide the driver’s seat too far forward, and wish you’d bought the Suburban or F-250 and pay twice as much for fuel the other 364 days of the year.

I’ve never picked up a new Ridgid Jointer, but have picked up too many other tools—and so was able to recognize the question. Good luck!!

Can’t help on the ridgid. My Jet 6” jointer came in two boxes one for base/motor and one for the cutterhead and the infeed outfeed wings. I was able to fit it in my small pickup but I needed help for the cast iron wings. The motor and base was doable for one person. Can’t they at least tell you if it comes in one or two boxes? Sheesh.

Per this amazon review it appears it comes in one box that barely fit in a small pickup. Yikes. That’s a big box!!!

I’ve had one for several years but honestly don’t remember the dimensions of the original box. My recollection is that the head unit was fully assembled with the wings already in place and only the stamped steel base required assembly. I know that I brought mine home in a full sized Yukon but Earl’s description would be pretty close to what it would have been like to put it into the wife’s CR-V.

Sawdust is correct, fairly simple to assemble and mine was dead on out of the box, but it was also the older grey version. When I purchased mine they were clearing out the grey versions at over 60% off, and I was able to get the jointer, bandsaw, planer, MSUV, two herc lifts, two steel stands, and two flip top stands in to the back of a Ford winstar mini-van, but I’m not 100% sure the front wheels touched the road for the full drive home. I still have part of the jointer box as the cover for my table saw, from my best recollection, besides being HEAVY, figure the box to be 60”x24”x18”
