Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1 Fatal Flaw Except for 1 fatal flaw, this is the best circular saw I've ever used. Lightweight, powerful, maneuverable, cuts smooth and easy. What could be wrong? Wobble in the motor shaft. Did I just get a bad apple? Let's see... I purchased my saw about 3 months ago, used it for a couple of small projects and loved it. Then another project came along which required me to make some careful crosscuts using a speed square for alignment. I wasn't looking for table saw quality, just good circ saw quality. No dice. What's up? There was play in the motor shaft. I could hold the arbor bolt and move it back and forth and feel/hear the shaft clink against the rear bearing. So back to the store it went. Thinking it was a just my saw, I wanted to trade it for an identical 6 1/2" Fuego, but I decided to open the new box in-store and check to be sure. Same problem! We eventually opened two new boxes and checked the display model as well. Every saw we checked exhibited the same loose fit in the back shaft bearing. A Ridgid rep was in the store. We discussed it, and she phoned it in to a tech who agreed with the diagnosis and suggested that store may have received a bad batch. So... I still wanted to replace the saw, so got a refund and drove to a larger HD in a nearby city. Their saws had the same problem! I'm obviously disappointed. This would be the perfect saw for me and I will buy it again in a heartbeat if they fix the problem. Footnote: HD service was good. February 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New favorite saw Treated myself to this saw after Christmas. I'm a avid DIYer and have owned just about ever brand of power tools on the market. This is hands down my new favorite saw. I was attracted to this model because of It's light weight, the 10 ft power cord, comfortable grip, and the lifetime warranty. I'm glad I bought it and will be adding more ridged tools to my large collection. March 18, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lifetime Warranty Non-Existent If you're buying because of the Ridgid Lifetime Warranty, save your time and money. It doesn't exist. Just do a google search for Ridgid Lifetime Warranty and read the horror stories. There are ALOT more negative reviews on this topic that HD will not let post to this site. March 1, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Purchased for life time warenty but When I bought the label on the box printed with life time warranty but when I registered online withe serial number and receipt number then company send me letter that I have send original receipt with cut piece of product packing box with serial number on it I do not under stand ?its so frustrated .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Light and Powerful At last count, I own 8 different circular saws, and this has become my go to saw because it is the perfect mix of weight and power. I used to always use a 7 1/4 inch saw for general purpose work, but this saw is several pounds lighter, and just as powerful. Cuts 2x, CCA, plywood, etc. Its easy to maneuver, the sawdust blower is a great little feature that works, wish it was on some of my other saws as well. In terms of durability, we will have to see, I'm not hard on my tools, but I use them plenty. For heavy duty cutting, I usually break out the worm drive, but this saw with a good thin kerf blade can do plenty, ad its easy to use on its side cutting posts, or over your head cutting rafter tails, etc. June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding saw with lots of power for its size. This saw is very nice. It's size and power is great for breaking down full sheets of plywood before doing any more cuts on the table saw. Used with an edge guide, this saw if equipped with a quality blade leaves a smooth cut with very minimal tearout. It's very easily maneuverable and comfortable to use. Does not bog down.
