Answer: 
It will cut iron, but the blade tips are standard carbide. They will dull with hard use. Lube sticks are scarce so you may burn up your blade with tough iron cutting. In my opinion the blade will burn up before the saw gives out.

Yes it will cut corrugated iron. When cutting corrugated iron or any type of sheet metal you do not want to cut straight in from the edge as this can cause binding but hold the saw up and plunge down into the metal there is an illustration in the box that shows this and it does make a difference.

Yes it will cut corrugated iron. When cutting corrugated iron or any type of sheet metal you do not want to cut straight in from the edge as this can cause binding but hold the saw up and plunge down into the metal there is an illustration in the box that shows this and it does make a difference. Also I recommend clamping the metal down to prevent it from slipping and sliding especially if cutting several sheets. Remember this saw does not have a guide plate so it does take a little knack to get a straight cut especially when ripping. Also make sure to support the iron so it does not bind the blades because like other saws if the blades bind it can kickback or ruin the blades. This saw does not usually kickback like a traditional circular saw but it can. Hope this info helps. . Read Less

Answer: 
Ye it will I cut my welding table which has 1/4 inch steel not on purpose but without a guide it is hard to cut a perfectly straight line. It will cut corregated iron I would worry about all the openings and fear the carbide blade tips would snap or come off destroying the blades and cause lots of chips to fly around.

Answer: 
If you are referring to the type of thin sheets used for roofing, yes it should cut them readily. You may want to set up a fence/guide that you can run the saw along for a straight cut. This saw has no base and it may be difficult following the up and down corrugations in the steel while cutting. A circular saw with a fine metal blade or grit blade (carborundum) may be better for you to use due to it Read More

This saw has no base and it may be difficult following the up and down corrugations in the steel while cutting. A circular saw with a fine metal blade or grit blade (carborundum) may be better for you to use due to it having a base to span the corrugations while cutting.
Be sure to wear long sleeves and a full face shield when cutting. Hot shards fly all over when cutting especially with the dual blade saw.

Answer: 
It came with starter blades that so far are holding up to whatever I have used it on. I was worried about the price also (only $10 more than the weekend warrior tool store) but pleasantly surprised by the quality and performance. I have other Ridged power tools and have had great service from all of them so I was willing to take a chance on this tool. It also has a great warranty.

Answer: 
Yes. blades install like all other saws. The saw is fabulous to cut sheet metal roofing. I think HD is closing out this saw. None are available in any stores. It is a screaming value. Nothing cheap about this saw. Buy it while it is available. It is twice as well made as others I have seen. I purchased a second saw after using mine for a week. You won't regret this (purchase) unless you don't make it...

Answer: 
Yes they do turn in opposing directions. That is the key feature with this saw that eliminates "bucking" or "kickback" when cutting in a line that's not straight. Also, you can push the twin blade forward when cutting or pull it toward you, whatever you prefer.

yes they turn opposite ive been using this saw, its the best twin blade on the market, way better than the dual saw. I sure hope home depot keeps selling this i better go buy a few for my buis just in case. In no way shape or form did home depot make me say this either this is my personal opinion as a veteran technician, this is the best one on the market, however its a metal saw not a wood saw

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool It does exactly as it is advertised.i have not used it to cut diamond plate yet but that is not something I would have a need for anyways September 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Read reviews and this should have been made a toe kick saw Why not make the guard so it can cut flush and adjust height. So dumb home depot makes tools for homeowners and not contractors. was not impressed with their drills their compressor or their circular saw. Make tools contractors can use sux they make a big tile saw but what smart person will buy it that has tried their other tools. All the reviews for this saw said bad design. Is this saw for artists or something. Or is it supposed to just cut one inch scrap. Its a toe kick saw but made to work so it wont function as one. If it cut flush it could cut old subfloor out flush to the studs. June 26, 2016

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed The back blade stopped turning with less than 8 hours of use. New blades did NOT help. Had to return. January 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best twin blade saw out there OK. A little background on what I do. I am not just a homeowner or DIY'er. I am a construction professional by trade and I do this for a living. It supports my family and me and is not just a hobby As a renovator and builder I have accumulated a lot of tools that are right for the job. In spite of all of those tools there are still some tools that have not been economically feasible to purchase because of the relatively few amount of jobs that they will be used on. The Ridgid has filled that gap quite nicely. I can now cut the aluminium plate that was difficult before as well as steel trim, downspouts, sink openings in counter-tops, and so many other things without ever having to fetch another tool or change the setup on a tool. This saw is **not** a replacement for an angle grinder or a regular 7-1/4” circular saw. It should be used in cases where an ordinary circular saw can’t be used and/or when a full-size 14-inch saw is too big. So it’s not always a replacement for your larger tools, but it is definitely an enhancement to the capabilities of a circular saw, a jig saw, a chop saw, an angle grinder and numerous hand tools. Today I cut a solid steel bar that was 3/4" thick and 3" wide into several pieces. The saw cut it with ease and left the cut surface smooth, shiny and burr-less. I made the mistake of buying the larger Dual saw CS650 6 inch saw before this because I wanted extra capacity and wow what an under-powered piece of junk. It doesn’t even cut one sheet of ½” plywood without bogging out to the point of almost getting stalled. This saw has much more power than the Dual saw and even though I did bog it down some it never wanted to stall out like the Dual saw did. I have tried all of the advertised capabilities of the Ridgid and have found them to be completely accurate. The next step up would be a 9" dual blade saw with 4200 RPM and a **minimum** of FOUR horsepower. December 30, 2015
