Rated 1 out of 5Â by growser Not good
Blade won't stay in when saw really starts to work. Reading other reviews on different sites it became apparent that a lot of other people were having these issues. Sounds like the issue is one of a design flaw rather than one of defect. Was very happy with Home Depot in allowing me to exchange the saw on a Milwaukee of which I am very pleased with.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Suds Blade Falls Out
I bought this saw this morning from Home Depot, and almost immediately the blade fell out while in use. I was cutting 3/32" steel that is used to form the walls of a swimming pool. There is lots of power but NO GOOD IF THE BLADE KEEPS FALLING OUT! I would NOT recommend this recipricating saw. Have decided to return to the store and purchase a Milwaukee recip. saw.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Brrr Amazing power, tool-less blade change needs work
I recently used this saw to carve up a demolished garage, and it performed admirably. When the blade stayed in, though.
This saw has great cutting power, but I would have to agree with other posters that the blade tends to come loose too easily. Maybe that isn't the case with Ridgid blades, but I can't remember back when I first used the blade it shipped with, and have since replaced with other brand blades.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jacknl Real solid product
I have had this saw for over a year and have never had any problems. It is powerful and and contrary to what some of the other reviews have said, I love the quick blade change. I have used all types of blades in it and have never run into a problem with the blades coming out or coming loose. Paid about $80 for it and I challenge anyone to find a better value.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jarrett Another Great Ridgid Product
I have had this saw for over a week now, I bought it on sale and am really liking this saw.
I put it to work this week on a job site and it made quick work of everything I threw at it. The blade release mechanism worked perfectly. I would recommend this saw without a doubt, this ones a keeper and a must on all jobs.
And never forget the ridgid warranty.
