Has the issue of the blades falling out been fixed?

This question is from Fuego 10 Amp Orbital Reciprocating Saw

October 17, 2013
I just bought this saw (without research) to do a project this weekend. Once I checked reviews I see there are problems with the blades falling out. Had I known I wouldn't have given this product any consideration, it appears not to be a new problem.

Before I get into my laundry room remodel and find that my saw won't hold the blade I would rather just return it for another brand if the issue hasn't been resolved.

Answer: 
The only time I had a problem with blades staying tight is when I used old blades that I had to slightly enlarge the holes for other brand saws. When using new blades, they fit quite tight and had no problems losing the blades.

Answer: 
Great saw, doesn't like the taste of blades. It's easy to put them back in (if you can find where they flew to, or get them unstuck from what they are stuck in) but it happens pretty frequently. Move on to another tool.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 93 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stay away Big fan of Rigid. Had different tools in the past, but their sawzall isn't up to pare with the rest of their lineup. Bought one before Rigid offered lifetime warranties. Sawzall shaft broke a yr later. When lifetime warranty came out decided to buy another. Used it about 15 times, and the same thing happened. Even with warranty, it makes it not even worth it to get fixed or get replacement. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by the beast I'm a General Contractor and I used this saw to cut through a 16 inch steel I beam and it worked perfectly ! It only took me 15 minutes with the metal diablo blade March 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Good saws all. I bought this saw as a replacement for a Grizzly reciprocating saw that burned out. It came with several blades and a good carrying case. Changing blades is a snap by hand without tools. It has plenty of power. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Blades fall out This might be a good saw if the blades stayed in. I am disappointed that Ridgid continues to sell this saw with no fix. I have read reviews from as far back as 2007 that have the same issue. July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool Good power & never needs charging! Very easy blade change. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by just purchased this I recently purchased a reciprocating saw, and a circular saw, I've always been keen to the Ridgid brand. we sell the Ridgid pipe tools, and some of the other industrial items. thought id take a gamble on these, so far today ive cut 4-5 roots along the driveway, in gravel, and thick red clay, water, mud, etc. it was flawless, even cutting up into the dark. ive got my moneys worth in one day, I did purchase the diablo pruning blade, and used one out of the pack. I worked all day, and did this after work, light easy to use, actually my first time using one. April 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw I have used this saw many times, great price. Highly recommend May 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Circular Saw Easy to put blade in and easy for this female senior citizen to use. Very nice clerk helped me choose the best one to fit my needs/ May 3, 2016
