The saw does a wonderful job for smaller work pieces. It has plenty of guts for cutting even a 2x4. Since I already own a few Ryobi tools and batteries and chargers, use was no problem.

must bolt down to something. I used a harbor freight vise grip work bench a two bolds. laser was accurate on cuts. Cut thru 2x4 very easily. Cut a 2x8, but had to cut from both directions and trim till the cuts matched up. Battery was fair, not a problem if you have 2 batteries and have one charging all the time. Light weight, dust bag doesn't work so well, could probably tighten up the dust bag with a Velcro strap. I like it.

Great little saw. Very portable and lightweight. The laser scribe line works well. Just realize what you are buying. It is a 71/4 inch saw, so it is very limited on any miter cut.

Love the brand. Great power and batteries last long enough to do small to medium projects. Love the versatility of battery operated tools. Lightweight yet powerful tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Russ Better than expected
I picked this saw up to cut used fence pickets for building stage props. I didn't expect much more than that, and would have been happy if that is all it could do. IT struggled cutting through 2x4s, but if you didn't force it, it would make the cut. I recently found a new respect for the saw though, when I realized that I was using the included blade and thought to myself it probably could stand an upgrade. I installed a 7-1/4" Diablo Demo Demon blade and this saw sprang to life! WOW! It will rip through 2x4s now, and the cuts are much cleaner. I haven't had it stall out once since changing the blade. If you pick up this saw, go ahead and grab the Demo Demon to go with it. You won't be sorry!

It is a great addition to my Ryobi one collection of tools. I bought this tool to take inside a house for trim work, rather than having my big saw outside and running back and fourth. It has it's cons that were all ready written in other reviews, no surprises. the con about it thermoing out is true on 2x4's but on trim and other smalls it worked fine. not to say it won't cut a 2x4, it does tax it, and let the saw do the cutting. I used it on a 2x4 wet pressure treated job, just had to slow down a bit. the other con I knew about and agree, the cam lock for the degree wheel could hold stronger. keep rechecking that it hasn't moved on ya.

This saw is exceptional for smaller jobs. The batteries are powerful and have lasting power.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JDHomer Could of been really great saw.
I was impressed with the light weight and portability, but there are a couple of major flaws in the design that could have been corrected in the manufacturing process for a buck or two (maybe ten...)
1. Laser is obstructed (blocked) as soon as you start to lower the arm to cut. (major)
2. Who has time to adjust a screw clamp 2 inches ?? Get a real clamp. (major)
3. The bed on mine was not flat, so could not slide a flat piece of stock across it without lifting it up. (minor)
4. Now here's the ten dollar fix - why does it take a 400$ saw for dual bevel. Its not rocket science. (Just wishing)
Had to return the one I bought... I will wait for version 3.0 or so.
