Ridgid RF-175 soldering gun, is it worth having?

I am looking at getting the Ridgid RF-175 soldering gun. I would like to know the satisfaction level of those who have used it. Does it increase productivity?

    Antex pipe master

    I have the antex pipe master it works the same way but the elements are fitted for 3/4 or 1/2 pipe. I think the Ridgid will do alot more pipe sizes. I use it when working in server rooms were a flame would set off the fire suppression systems that require a act of god to shut off. It is a lot slower than using a map gas torch and way slower than a acetaline air torch. Also You have the hassle of a cord and it pulls alot of power they will trip a breaker if anything else is on the same curcuit.
