Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - incorrect reviews Saw many comments on this tool about the battery getting in the way when trying to cut…. The head swivels - no such issues. Read about the 7/16 issue…. False! Mine came with 3/8 blades & arbor, as well as a 7/16 arbor. Had I gone by other reviewers - I would have not bought this tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Things I noticed that I didn't see in the reviews. 1) The head swivels without tools. It has 4 spring loaded detent positions, each about 5 degrees of rotation. Therefore the battery can get out of the way of the workpiece. 2) It has a reverse button, which can be nice if you want the dust & sparks to fly the other direction. :) 3) There is a motor brake, which means the cutter stops pretty quickly when trigger released. This feels safer than the corded angle grinders I'm used to, which take some time to spin-down, during which time they're still a bit dangerous. 4) It does have an LED worklight, which only illuminates when trigger pulled. (there is not a separate paddle for the LED that some other Ridgid tools have). 5) Unit is very quiet, it does not make the screamy sounds that most 4.5" angle grinders do. Also the trigger is variable speed. It's still quiet at full speed but I did feel vibrations at higher speeds, no matter which cutter disc was installed. I should probably visit the store and see if that happens on alternate units, may need to seek exchange if there is an imbalance problem with my unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea BUT!! Ridgid drop the ball on this one. Special order only blades? Odd size arbor?? Most of all cannot be used to cut wood, RIDGID re-design it or release a version that can be used to cut and trim wood, Then you would have a big seller! Many others including myself wont buy this unit because of it limited use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the tool Love this handy tool... but can’t seem to find replacement blades for it anywhere!!! Very frustrating!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Limited usefulness On its surface, this looks fantastic. Maybe even your go-to?. Not for me. This tool sits at the bottom of my toolbox gathering dust from the other tools. First, blade size is not standard and difficult to come by. Second, it is not designed to cut wood, and there are no blades for that purpose. How about what it does do? Well max depth is 5/8-inch. That is limiting. Second, while it cuts drywall, it makes an awful mess due to blade thickness. Ridgid makes better cordless tools for precision drywall cuts. If intended for metal, plastic and ceramic, you have to ask yourself how often you will need it and if worth the price and space in your toolbox. Good features are the pivoting head and rotation direction selector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing tool and super compact size I bought this a month ago with the extra free battery kit. It's an amazing tool, specially when you install custom blades. I ordered a 80 mm 3-1/8" saw blade that fits, a bit tight to insert but it fits. 3" inch blades are much more expensive. The reversible feature is great, I can put the blade to cut away from me. Cut wood great and other materials with the right blade. The guard is rotating to adjust to your perfect angle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made recently purchased, replacement blades are problem and a disappointment. "Romly" has the answer for cutoff blades in his review. Otherwise, a great answer for many jobs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pas vraiment satisfait J'ai été un peu déçu, je l'ai retourné au magasin. Premièrement, la batterie ne fit pas vraiment avec l'outil, on dirait un problème de conception, la batterie ne rentre pas jusqu'au bout et avec le modèle de batterie qui vient de sortir, la batterie ne fixe pas très bien à l'outil, elle reste lâche. J'ai fixé les batteries sur d'autres outils Ridgid et tous vas très bien, c'est plutôt un problème de conception de l'outil. Et je ne comprends pas pourquoi ils sont capables de faire une perceuse et une visseuse puissante avec la même grosseur de moteur et que pour cet outil, je constate vraiment un manque de puissance, je suis capable sans effort de retenir la lame. Je vais vais plutôt acheter le modèle Ryobi qui est vraiment mieux conçu!!!

Can it cut wood like 2x4s and plywood ?

Asked by: TerriO
Not really intended for that function. Possible plywood cutting with the right blade. Great metal cut off tool, works great for tile work as well. Has a disc for drywall, makes a lot of dust. Probably not the right tool for cutting 4X4s

What is the maximum depth of cut, and can this tool reasonably be used to cut various bar stock?

Asked by: Mike
After calling Ridgid's 1-800 customer service line, I was informed that the maximum cut depth is 0.64 inches. Given this exceeds the average cut depth of 0.5 inches of most non-wood related cuts (e.g. sheet materials, bar stock, tile, bolts/fasteners, pipe and tubing wall, etc.) this could be a very handy tool. That said, I am disappointed that the RIDGID Canada Team passed the buck on this question. Their response was unprofessional and came across as demeaning and insulting by suggesting that they could not be bothered to provide fundamental consumer information for their own product.

This item includes disks with size 7/16 arbor washers, but the replacement disks for this product use 3/8 inch arbor washers. How am I supposed to use the replacement disks if they are a different size than the ones included in this package?

Are there saw blades for this? To cut plywood, maybe 3/4" pine etc?

Asked by: Woodcraft By Steve
Hi Wood By Steve, Yes there are additional saws that can be purchased for several different applications. Unfortunately RIDGID's blades are available yet. However Milwaukee sells their own 3-inch blades that are a direct fit with this RIDGID product. Please review the link attached.
