This is a lot easier to cut a straight line with.
Had an older version that took a lot of abuse. Newer version has much better angle and depth adjustments. Like that you can see oil level.
Was great for the price
I purchased this saw to make straight cuts through MDF, OSB and ply wood. This saw does most the work all I have to do is push. It’s a great product.
This Skill saw cuts like butter, it is a bit heavy but if your a working DIY guy you could handle it. I would not recommend it for little girls. You know who your are.
The saw is comfortable and cuts well. The fence slot is either too wide (for the fence sold by ridgid) so that it is not plumb, or too narrow to fit the skil or aftermarket fence. Three stars for stupid engineers who probably have never cut a board in their life.
Easy to assemble
Really quiet and powerful
Excellent performance. I like the lifetime service warranty, and hope I never have to use it.
Saw has plenty of power and cuts wet wood with ease
Very solid and durable saw. A little on the heavy side though.
Saw is very powerful. It is a little heavy but it is very easy to use.
Fantastic saw. I have wated years for a worm drive, definitely worth the wait ! I recommend it.
This is a great saw with power to spare.
My local HD had these on clearance sale for $85. I already own an older Skilsaw and so did not need another worm drive but for $85 how could I not buy another! Overall, this is a good saw but maybe just a notch down from my Skilsaw. It feels just slightly heavier (i have the aluminium not the magnesium skilsw) and I think the Ridgid might have just slightly less power but it is very close. I bought a new Diablo framing blade with the saw and did a quick cross-cut of some 2×4’s with each saw, using the same blade. Neither had any issues but the Skil seemed to go just a hair faster. On the plus side, the bevel markings on the Ridgid are vastly better and have great positive stops. The rafter hook on the Ridgid feels sturdy and the top handle feels better in my hands (it’s larger than the one on my Skilsaw). Plus the Ridgid has the LSA which is unbeatable. I have other Ridgid tools that have been flawless after years of very hard use. Overall, a ridiculously good value!
Light weight great power
I was very please with this saw and warranty
free lifetime repair
does the job plenty of power
