Customer Questions & Answers

Does the saw come with a blade or do i need to order one seperate?

Asked by: Anonymous
It comes with a general purpose blade. I would purchase a spare and any task specific blades you need (read "better quality"). The blade is adequate but nothing special.

How mch does this saw weigh, including th battery and blade, and does it come with a battery?

Asked by: GirlCarpenter
The saw I purchased did not come with a battery. However it is compatible with Ridge batteries is you have other ridge battery tools. You will need to check if the battery is compatible. Don't forget to register your product and you will have a lifetime warrenty on batteries and tools from ridge.

What size is blade?

Asked by: Anonymous
Takes a 6-1/2" blade. The same as many other cordless circular saws, so not difficult to find.

Customer Reviews

X4 18-Volt Cordless Circular Saw Console (Tool Only) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 134.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy I purchased this in March '16 (and was able to utilize the Home Depot 11% rebate promotion that was running to match a big box competitor). It has been very useful. I recently used it to: trim shelves, cut 4 x 8's for a shed floor, and cut out siding over a doorway [so, on a ladder]. I purchased a higher quality blade (the included blade is still unused). Being able to make all these cuts, and not have to be flipping an extension cord around. That is a joy. One could make the argument that a cordless is safer, because the trip hazard of an extension cord is now gone, especially on the ladder.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed Bought this saw after having good luck with Ridgid cordless drills and impact driver. The Battery doesn't last more than a dozen cuts of 1x4 pine and even fewer with 2x4's. Don't even bother trying to cut 1/2" sheeting. I thought it might be the battery, but I charged it and put it in my impact driver and drove 3/8 lag bolts and pole barn screws for more than half the day before switching batteries. I'll be bringing the saw back, really expected more out of Ridgid. My Dad had his Ryobi cordless saw on the same job and it ran circles around my Ridgid, which I found odd because Ryobi and Ridgid are sister companies, maybe the should share so technology.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for general work. Easy to carry. The best use for this saw is when an electric outlet is difficult to get to and running an extension cord may not be practical. The battery life is directly connected to the size of the battery. It is convenient and reasonably powerful but the handle is a bit small if you want to wear gloves when using this saw. It is not a primary saw but it is a good backup. Well balanced!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice saw, seems to have plenty of power. The saw is lightweight and very easy to adjust. I keep it in my car because I will stop places that have skids. I repurpose the wood. The battery holds up quite well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good saw Same amount of power as my full size, plug in saw, but lighter, more mobile and easier to use/manuver.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacks power Used for one day, nice but was not powerful enough to cut through treated lumber with a 4amp battery.
Date published: 2016-10-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice features, good saw I bought this to upgrade my older Ridgid cordless which is honestly still going strong. The first difference I noticed is the blade placement, my old saw had the left hand blade, this version is the more traditional right hand blade. I personally had no issue with either version. The bevel adjustment has some nice presets and click into standard angles with a nice solid lever to lock it down. I found the on-off switch to be a bit more of a hassle, but just takes some getting used to. I have not used this with the new x4 batteries, I run all of my tools with the larger X3 84008 batteries and have plenty of power and run time for all of my tools. Overall this is a nice saw, but if your older model is still going strong, wait until it needs to be replaced before upgrading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw! This saw is everything a tool like this should be. It is powerful yet compact and lightweight (in the best sense of the word). It is incredibly easy to control. I have a corded circular saw that is bigger and more powerful but this is the tool I grab nine times in ten. A tool you use because it is convenient is a useful tool. I wish it came with the rip fence but I guess we can't have everything.
