Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DITdidItrythat Great! Used exclusively for stone cutting so far
I bought this to use for cutting Unilock wall block for a DIY wall project. I have the Ryobi one+ circular saw but it's a smaller blade and I honestly thought whatever I used on the wall project would get burned out by the time I was done. So I actually bought this with the intention of using it once.
I also bought the Avanti Pro 7 in. Turbo Diamond Blade to go with it. At $55 total it was still less than renting a stone saw and it gave me flexibility on the time I took to complete the job. So being a "throw away" saw didn't feel so bad.
Not only did it complete my project with ease, I loaned it to a friend who used it to make all the edge cuts on a 20X20 Unilock paver patio. Probably 100+ paver cuts. And for what it's worth that was still with the original blade, which was a bonus.
After all that it still works and looks good as new! Never bogged down on cutting stone, but make sure you have the right blade for the job, with the right blade it should be powerful enough for most things.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garage Guy Great value for occasional carpentry
I bought this saw to cut 2 x 4s for framing in my basement and it worked very well. Now I've put a carbide blade on it and it seems to perform as well as much more expensive saws. Very happy with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CJ Great little saw
I found that this little saw was a great saw for me. As a senior women the light weight of it made it so easy to use. It would probably not be a saw that a contractor would find they would get heavy duty work from. Great for light duty.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Absolute Junk!
I bought this in a pinch because my old harbor freight one finally burned out after years of weekend projects. I own other Ryobi products like their One tools. This is the only ryobi product i have had that disappointed and it did emmensely. Out of the box it struggled cutting 2x4s and 1/2" plywood. It hesitates, kicks and refuses to cut.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chilibean Power and precision cuts.
We needed a power saw to build the ultimate skinning rack, but it had to be powerful enough to cut pressure treated lumber and precise for cutting plywood at angles; all at a reasonable price! This saw was just what the doctor ordered; price, power and precision. The rack turned out better than we hoped, it even has shelves to hold knives and beverages. This saw is now part of my Home Depot shop at the ranch. It will be used for many projects going forward.
