Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Excellent saw - early review
Have only used the new saw a little but to date I think it is a great saw. When cutting long cuts on 3/4" plywood the saw is easier to keep on the line than a lite saw.
Recommend that you check the oil before you every plug in the saw. I found my saw was no where near full of oil when I got it. I couldn't find the recommended oil on home depots web site but they do sell a worm drive oil that will work in the rigid saw (stated on the home depot site)

I got this saw to handle the heavy duty jobs in completing a large deck construction job. It worked great. It is very strong and powerful. I also love the way that cutting point of the blade is very easy to see while you are cutting. I used it for cutting decking boards, and for cutting out the 2x12 stringers for the steps. It was easy to handle and did a great job. I am very glad that I have this tool.

It's a great saw and you can't beat the Ridgid warranty. I just wish it came with a rip fence...

Over all the saw had plenty of power and was excellent to have on the job site. However after about two months of use the blade guard broke. It has now been out for repair longer than I had the saw in service. First time the saw was returned to me as "fixed" the guard was actually in worse shape than when I sent it out for repairs. Over all I would not buy this product again just due to the fact of horrible warranty process. I would rather spend a little extra and get a different brand that can be taken to a local service center and returned to me within a weeks time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Walter This product has great features.
This product has everything needed for any of the outdoor projects asked of it so far. The weight is a little on the heavier side, but once you start using it, it is no longer noticeable.

I had no idea that a hand held circular saw could be this powerful and versatile! This saw cuts through 2x12s like it's nothing. Rip, cross cut, whatever... no problem! I added a Freud finishing blade to mine and it's accurate, quiet and incredibly powerful. I cut through a stack of 4 sheets of 7/16 OSB and it didn't even begin to struggle. Forget all other saws, this is the absolute best one for the money!

Great Saw. A Little On The Heavy Side But worth It. It Cuts As Fast As I Push. Only Downside Is No Case Or Even A Canvas Bag.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donquardo Reliable and powerful
More power and more mass makes this saw cut very smooth and safe. This saw won't kick back like a side winder will; it just powers through. Pocket cuts are easier and safer too. Ergonomically comfortable. I bought my rigid worm drive in 2009 and it's still going strong after countless job sites. big box employees may not know but the skill saw oil works fine and is usually located with the saw accessories by the multi tool blades etc.... Do an oil change after a few hours of use to get rid of the small metal burrs from the worm gear then just change oil annually.
