No case... and. more importantly... you won't get the Lifetime Service coverage you are promised either. It doesn't really exist. Don't trust me.... just google Ridgid Lifetime Warranty.

No case included. I picked up a husky tool bag and carry it in that. I tend to prefer the soft nylon bags vs. hard cases.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting RIDGID. The RIDGID R3204 circular saw has a depth of cut at 45 degrees of 1-5/8", which is just 1/8" over the needed depth to cut a nominal 2X4, which would be 1-1/2" thick.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Nice saw. One problem, tried to square saw, blade to foot at 90 degrees and was unable to do so. She cuts at roughly 87 degrees. I mean who wants to take a saw back after they just drove 27 miles. May return for exchange and or adjustment next trip. May 24, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Reminds me of Detroit 30 years ago. Just way too many shortcomings. 1. The depth lock is loose, and as a consequence it wouldn't lock down the depth. I had to unscrew the torx bolt, re-tighten for it to work. 2. The bevel lockdown is loose and likewise wouldn't lock down and I had to readjust. 3. The 90 degree between the blade and the shoe is not square. The adjust needs a T8 torx bit to adjust. I don't have it. So have to get the special T8 to do adjustment. 4. The blade and the side of the shoe is not parallel. It is off by about 1/16 between the front and the back which is quite substantial. Adjusting this requires a complete tear-down of the housing, motor and arbor assembly. I gave up for what could have been a very well designed quality saw if the manufacturer are on top of their QA department. Reminds me of Detroit 30 years ago where the business and production model is to ship it out regardless and let the dealers handle any quality issues. Well in this case, even with lifetime warranty, I'm not putting up for it......I returned it !!! May 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEST WARRANTY OUT THERE... Sharp and accurate.......easy to hold and keep on line.......LIFE TIME GUARANTEE is the best part... April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw light easy to use Saw has big capacity for such a small saw, slices 3/4 plywood faster than my 8" dewalt handles a 2X4 with zero issues. May 4, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 6 1/2" Mag. saw I am a framing contractor. This was purchased to replace an old Skill 5 1/2" that we use up high to cut truss blocks, rafter tails, plywood, etc. where a worm drive is heavy and awkward. I really wanted to like this saw, because it has a a bunch of great features: It's light, it's reasonably powerful, it's small, it has a METAL FRAME (BIG deal, we destroy plastic framed saws) and it has a 6 1/2" blade, so it will cut 2X at a 45 degree bevel. BUT. It got returned after 3 days of use because it's Achilles heel is that is a plastic y depth adjustment lock that would perpetually come loose, could not be tightened (at least as near as we could tell) and eventually broke from being cranked on in an attempt to keep it locked. SO...I can't say it's either "Durable", or "Professional" as it states on the box, but it does have some things to recommend it none the less. For homeowner use, or maybe as a plywood saw, it would probably be OK. For commercial framing, not so much. March 29, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not what I thought it would be I wanted to replace a small light weight Mikita that was a good saw but I was tired of cutting the power cord into because the cord came out of the side the blade was on. I wanted it for cutting smaller lumber like siding 1x4 1x8 and the like. Something easer to use than a full size saw. The saw will not follow a square at all has no adjustment for the table so it can. The table is very rickidy and can be pushed side to side while sawing leaving the tail of the blade ruining the cut of the work piece. For the price it should be better. Unless you have no experience at all using a good saw you will not be happy. If you are doing something like sharpening stakes it will be fine. If making a living with a saw look elsewhere. Wally.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ridgid fuego Is an excellent product. Wonderful for cutting wood April 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Be Wary of the Lifetime Service Agreement The tool itself is nice but the Lifetime Service Agreement may be false advertising. Like at least one other customer, I submitted the registration online and a couple of weeks later got an email advising there was an error in that process. Like the other customer, I also was asked to mail some information into Ridgid. I called the company about this and they advised that they can't resolve this over the phone (very suspect), nor could I email them a scanned copy of the info they requested (who doesn't support email these days???), and that it would take about 8 weeks to resolve once they received the info I need to mail in. I am not sure that the tool is worth all of this hassle. This run around really feels as is if Ridgid is not serious about their LSA and that they are intentionally throwing up obstacles to avoid having to support their tools as they advertise. I too, am pretty disgruntled over this hassle; very, very, poor customer service. March 9, 2016
