Best part is I already have a charger and extra batteries, Easy to move around and works great on cutting at work area so I can get more accurate cuts when doing tight fit on trim work

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Adino Saw did not run.
I received this for Christmas this year. I loved the idea that I could cut 2x4’s anywhere on my property. Unfortunately, the unit was shutting off mid cut, no matter hard or soft I tried to cut the board. I needed to flip the laser switch off to “re-set” the saw, then cut…die switch on…cut die switch off cut die. No matter how I tried to get it to run it just would not go. Called Ryobi Tech Support and they said they had never had one do that. Claimed it must be my batteries. I informed him that I also got for Christmas 4 brand new P108’s. The batteries have been running everything else with no problems. I tried all batteries with no success. So, back to the store it went. They are out of stock….even on line I got a store credit till the new one comes in. I am hopeful that I had a bad unit. I will update this negative post after I get a new one and try it again. I’m giving it 2 stars because I’m willing to try another one, It should really only get 1 star…

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by myownryobi Great Cordless Mitre Saw
I'm surprised this saw isn't that popular in the stores as having a mitre saw that's cordless is great not having to find an outlet nearby. Recently, I used this saw to help build a child's playhouse for my sister and it worked like a charm. Our work area was in the backyard, but since the saw is cordless, not a problem! Because of the 7 1/4 size, I couldn't use the saw for all the mitre cuts (for those I used a circular saw), but the saw breezed through cross cuts and cutting for trim. Many cuts for one battery charge. Weighin at only about 17 lbs or so, the portability is great, especially with the carry handle. The only minor improvements I would reccommend is more contrast on the numbers which the degrees for mitre cuts, and if the safety wood holder had a quick release instead of a screwing. Other than those minor areas for improvement, this saw is wonderful!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dusty Not for big jobs!
If you only have to cut shoe mould or 2 inch light rail fine but 1 x 4 is a chore even with high capacity battery. I keep it in the van for an unexpected emergency otherwise bring a real miter box!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Awesome tool for my cordless collection
For an 18 volt chop saw you can't beat this deal, it's perfect for the homeowner and great on small contracting jobs when you don't want to drag around power cords. ( Which I Hate ).. I do encourage using the biggest 1+battery tho because it does use it up kinda quickly if you have allot to cut.. But all and all.. GREAT TOOL!,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BobinAZ Doesnt work with my One+ batteries
Tried to use this product with Lith 18 V and Lith 18V+ batteries - immediately drained them and rendered them non-rechargeable. I had to return batteries 3x. So without batteries, the product won't work. Home Depot employees advised it was the saw - it was defective - and ordered a new one which I am waiting for - and hoping it will work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LABILL How do I rate this saw?
How do I rate this saw? I love it. It is just the tool I need. Unfortunately it worked for about 10 minutes and failed. It has been in the warranty repair shop for 3 weeks with no sign of being repaired. Hopefully, I just got a lemon and the saw will be returned to me and we'll live happily-ever-after.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hizzer works great
bought this machine to carry around from job to job, no extension cords to worry about, I keep my batterys fresh and they do the job, light and very portable well worth the money, adjust the laser, done, I let the blade peak at full speed before cutting and have had no problems at all, very nice it makes me look good

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chronus Pretty good tool
It would be incredible if it locked into the preset positions accurately. Unfortunately they are sloppy and you'll need a speedsquare to get the angles perfect each time you change the angle.
Still, I love this tool. It's light and reliable. 1 regular battery will cut enough molding to do every piece in a small apartment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grdydrv Perfect smaller saw
This saw is the perfect companion to my larger and much heavier miter saw. Great for grab and go quick jobs yet plenty accurate for smaller fine trim jobs. I did upgrade the blade to a 60t right away for a finer cut. I highly recommend this saw if you feel it fits your needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NoVAJohn Great product!
I love this little saw. But don't let "little" fool you. It handles most anything you would want to cut. I've used it for 2x4s, pvc conduit, fence boards, etc. Great for when you need a few, quick cuts (especially when you don't want to haul out the big sliding miter saw).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sinnster amazing power for size
This chop is beast. Ultra portable, with a ton of features. Exacta line laser , 18v power, carry handle, lightweight, etc. Battery lasts for a half a day with regular use. I can't get used to its ease of use and power. Ryobi has done it again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1rhi I like the size and convenience
This is a great saw for it's size and convenience and that is what I wanted it for. The only problem I have found is that if you don't use a silver battery it acts like the switch is bad and won't allow the motor to start.

the best things about this saw is it is small, light, and battery powered by the batteries that I already have. It met all of my expectations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cubsfanfred Great saw for small jobs.
I bought this saw for a job in my carport area, which has no electrical power outlet. The saw handles 2X3's and 2X4's quite well. I could not get it to run using the larger P104 battery, but it performed quite well using the smaller P100's that I already had for my drill and sander.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fourhoofer Great little saw.
I am a Carpenter, that got tired of hauling my 70lbs. 12 inch Dewalt slider out of the van to cut a few pieces of trim. I use it daily to cut trims and toe kicks. With a good finish blade and slowly dropping the blade through the wood, it does a great job!

I Love this saw! I use it everyday to cut aluminum window frame and screen door frame. It is light and easy to move. It is alot easier than unloading my Dewalt saw and extension cord and carrying it to my customers back yard, then finding a plug to plug into.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eri11143 The battery operation makes it so convenient to take it where it is needed on the job
The Ryobi maintains the power needed to do the job. Shopping for the product was easy and customer service was more then expected.

Ibought this for putting up siding on my house, I love how portable it is, and the cuts are great,quality of the product is what you would expect maybe a little better. The only thing I can complain about is I just wish it would come with a battery.

Not used it too much yet, but it does exactly what it should do, as long as you keep to light duty jobs. New Lithiium ion batteries are plenty strong.
