Rated 5 out of 5Â by doc2361 best dust free cutting
small light weight saw, easy to get in tight areas. Dust free operation, and able to cut other materials,ie tile and cement by changing blades.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tom1234 Tool works well
Me: obsessive/compulsive do-it-yourselfer. Bought the saw to replace the siding on my house. I have seen fiber-cement products cut with conventional saws and witnessed clouds of dirty, nasty, very unhealthy dust. This saw captures almost all the dust. I am very, very impressed. The saw also handles well, is quite light compared to my regular circular saw, the blade angle adjustment is user friendly and the saw is easy to use with a straight edge guide. I like it. I have one unanswered question: does the store carry replacement blades or will I have to find a supplier on-line? I'll cross that bridge when I come to the river. Summary: good tool.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JohnBuck53 Using the RIDGE Fiber Cement Circular Saw
The saw vacuum system did contain 75-80% of the airborne cement dust while cross cutting and ripping with the tool.
Would be better if the blade housing would allow viewing of the blade to make scribe cutting more accurate when vewing the tool from left of the blade.
Should be sold with an option to purchase a durable soft case to contain and store all the accessories.
Also the shoe should be adjustable so the blade doesn't cut deep into sacrificial supporting wood on work surface.

I've done a number of siding jobs with this saw and the dust vacum system is great. Just tried using it with a 4 inch dry diamond blade to cut 1/2 granite countertop and it also worked great. cut down stone dust also.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Nickname No blade depth adjustment
Wow, this saw appears to be well built but, unfortunately, I couldn't use it for the job that I specifically bought it for. I have a wood floor (glued on concrete slab) which needs to be pre-cut to ease demolition. But with the blade depth fixed it's a no-go for using this saw. This is too bad since using a vacuum-assisted saw would have reduced the amount of dust significantly.
