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.

Fuego 12 Amp 6-1/2 in. Magnesium Compact Framing Circular Saw is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid circular saw Overall, great product. It is a lightweight, 6 1/2" circular saw. It is what it is. The blade is on the right (for better or worse). I am right handed and would prefer blade left, but I can live with decision. Here is why. I researched tons of circular saws as I am laying hardwood floors and I need to cut planks repetitively. I borrowed a cordless Dewalt 20V 6 1/2" inch and it has been convenient, except for batteries. The blade for the Dewalt is positioned on the left, which I like. The saw is lightweight. I thought I wanted a corded saw with a left blade, but I only found two made, one by Bosch and one by Milwaukee. Both models are 10+ lbs. For my hardwood floor cuts, I want a light saw, as I am cutting free-hand using a speed square. This Rigid saw's larger brother received good reviews on websites, so I trusted this saw would be good as well. I feel that it is. The saw is light enough that I feel comfortable with it in my left hand so I can see my cut line while holding a speed square on the plank in my right. I can adjust the depth of the cut, which will allow me to hold the speed square to the plank with my left hand, and cut while holding the saw in my right. I decided on this saw as opposed to cheaper alternatives, like the Ryobi 7 1/4" saws that are a little lighter (7-7.9 lbs), because the composition of the saw appears to be sturdier, not plastic. I decided against cordless because a $100 saw easily turns into $200+ when you get two batteries and a battery charger. I am happy with it overall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Check your saw before your measurements I've owned this saw for years now. I'll admit this is my first circular saw, but I've gotten to know it very well. Most projects I've done were very simple where accuracy was important but not the main priority. Over summer 16 I've taken my craft to new levels, this is were truth came came out. I use guides and/or jigs majority of the time to try to achieve straitest cuts possible. This saw is no where near strait! Never been dropped or abused in the slightest way, but after recording measurements on the saw its self the 0° setting & blade trueness are way off! I was very upset as I thought back on all the material, cuts, blades, time& effort that was wasted trying to reach higher levels of percision. I checked the math so many times & I thought carpentry just wasn't for me but it wasn't me it was the effing saw... Big mistake as a noob, at the time the saw was good for my price range but I would have spent triple if I knew the time that could be saved. if you happen to still purchase make sure you know how to assess the trueness of the tool, there are other draw backs on this tool but this was the most significant. Good luck

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, solid saw - lightweight, handy for remodel/overhead/vertical use. Blade depth lock doesn't... Good, solid saw - lightweight, handy for remodel/overhead/vertical use. Blade depth lock doesn't seem to clamp down at max depth, but hasn't been a problem. Doesn't come with a rip fence - really silly - you can order one from Rigid for <$3 + shipping - a needless hassle. Soft case would have been nice, too; but after 6 mos. & several projects, I'm a satisfied customer & would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridgid 6 1/2" Magnesium corded circular saw Nice light little saw. Nice baseplate. Cuts pretty true (+/- quarter degree) right out of the box. Designed for framing, but I have been using it with a strait edge & a fine tooth blade for nice cuts in cabinet grade plywood. Motor is made for dimensional lumber so it has plenty of power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saw ever!!!! This little saw turns at 6200 rpms while the bigger ones turn at about 5800 it won't slow down on long angle cuts it is the best saw I've ever bought!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
