Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Tool-Dumb Design This saw is a good upgrade for durability over the 6 1/4" model but its heavy. It has a good deal of Big Saw capability but the two handed-Blade on the Right is a real problem. They designed a peak through hole to follow the blade on the line but its overly cumbersome and having the blade on the Rt side is additionally problematic for making nip cuts(short corrections). I respect the idea in the knob handle but Stupid appendage! I have run corded Worm Drive saws for 40 years and never use two hands. The counter to all other brand blade position is well suited to Lefties or those that use a saw on weekends. The 6 1/4" is a better saw albeit not brushless or 'Octane' The table is prone to bending but its speed, and cut capacity out do the difficulty of a Saw built inverse to the standard. I run a hundred Ridgid tools in my outfit among 4 guys but this is a disappointment in that aspect. Power is good. Construction is solid, Battery life is reasonable, Warranty is top but its backwards in design...for this reason, BEWARE.. Bottom line? I usually buy 4 of every purchase but I will not outfit this saw in my company.

It is a big improvement over the Gen 4, 6 1/2 inch saw I used. Is it is powerful as a 15 amp corded saw? No, but it gets the job done and I haven't used a corded saw in 3 years with the exception of heavy demo work where I have to bury the blade down into 10 layers of shingles. The RPM speed is a little slow, but they had to gear it down for more torque. For maximum performance I would use this saw with 5 amp hour or bigger batteries (9.0 is best) I will be upgrading to a Octane r8654 saw for more performance soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A useless, frustrating and dangerous tool Honestly, I haven't found anything this saw will cut without stopping after a few seconds. Not thin plywood, not small lumber, not even something I could break with my hands. It's just so weak that I usually give up and get a corded tool to finish the job. I use freshly charged new gen batteries and the thing bogs like I was using old NiCads. This thing is so weak that it is dangerous. Do not buy, do not gift, do not consider.
