Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Ridgid circular saw R-O-C-K-S! For the money, you just can't get a better saw. I paid $110 on sale and I passed up a Makita and a DeWalt to try this one out. I don't regret it a bit. Blade adjustment couldn't be easier, the base is heavy duty with a thick edge for running down a rip guide and the kirf marks in the base are dead on. I was cutting very wet decking and she never slowed down. The 15amp motor handle the biggest jobs and that 12' power cord can't be beat. I had myself convinced I needed a $200 saw to get good results but this thing rocks! Registered it for the lifetime service so I'll never have to buy another saw again. September 16, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not Your Average Product I enthusiastically echo the superlatives expressed by the other reviewers. This Ridgid product is so good; so well made and thought out it is hardly believable it can be in the same price class as some of the pedestrian competing models it is being compared to; Milwaukee, Dewalt, Skil, Ryobi etc. The design for 'useability' is what I like most. It is such a pleasure to use and makes the job go so quickly I find myself looking for more reasons to use it. All saws cut wood. Not many make it a joy to do so. August 8, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable, good priced saw. for an every day saw I find it to be highly reliable. I really enjoy the little features they've added; like the light on the cord. the saw seems to be of solid construction, and has not let me down with it's preformance. May 7, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great saw Good weight, great power for its size, tracks straight. Not as noisy as some saws i've used....what more could you ask for ? January 3, 2011
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GOOD SAW, EXCEPT FOR PRECISION CUTTING This saw is well made and has a strong motor with a hefty, sturdy build. The problem lies in the base of the saw. The edges of the base are not square and cause the saw to walk around when using a cutting guide. The stamping process is faulty on the base metal piece. I had to return mine and attempted to buy another, however, after opening two other boxes, I found that both had the same problems of the base not being flat and square. I would look elsewhere if doing finishing work. I actually had to buy the worm gear Rigid saw to find one that had square, true edges for use with a cutting guide. August 30, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Base not square, poor quality control I recently purchased this saw on accident. The Home Depot had the older model on display (R32022) which had a much nicer base to it, but I didn't realize the Ridgid box I grabbed was a different model number. The angle markings on this one are painted instead of stamped, but the main problem was the poor quality control for the stamped aluminum base. It was out of square on the sides and not flat on the bottom. Add to it the fact that it doesn't come with a case or a rip guide and it isn't worth the money. This tool is made in China. The quality of this product is relatively high with the few exceptions noted. I'm generally pleased with ridgid products, but not this one. I ended up spending a little more for a Makita and am very pleased with it. Ridgid needs to stop cutting corners if they want to remain competitive with better brands. April 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality circular saw. The shoe is straight and the blade is square to the shoe so all cuts track straight and there is no binding of the blade in the kerf. The depth and angle adjustments are easy to use and the markings are accurate. I really like the longer cord on this saw compared to the cords on my Dewalt circular saws. The saw is solidly built and should last a lifetime. The lifetime service agreement is the best reason to switch to Ridgid tools. I used to buy Dewalt, Porter Cable and Milwaukee but I'd much rather buy tools that are covered for my entire life than tools that have anywhere from a 90 day to a 1 year warranty. Now as I wear out other brands of tools I am buying only Ridgid as replacements. May 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RIDGED MODEL 3205 (NOT 32022!) IMPROVED Model 3205 is IMPROVED (over 32022, being discontinued) IT CUTS DEEPER, has STEEPER BEVEL, smooth deck doesn't gather lodged debris, has spindle lock and has numerous ergonomic tweeking on its much venerated older sibling. (See side by side spec comparison here abouts). I've read many rave reviews for both these $99 siblings-- near indestructanle, out lived several more expensive name brands, quieter, surprisingly manageable compared to most other professional 15 amp saws. I'm looking forward to getting even better acquainted with this promisingly tweaked 3205 model. (Sold my equipment when I retired. This'll help ease a few regrets on that :) February 8, 2014
