Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful saw I had bought one of these for myself and just loved it. I do a lot of woodworking. My brother does also so when he saw the information on it he mentioned he would like to get one. He lives in an area that has no Home Depot. I surprised him by buying him one and having it shipped to him. Got their before the scheduled time. He also loves it! Easy to handle, cuts exact. Use it for arched cuts etc. Built the pictured chair and side table with it. March 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Happy Bought this to cut a template for making plaques. Liked the variable speed feature, cut nicely, and effectively. January 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Incorrect display model I agree with Nick. The blade is/was difficult to insert. But more importantly was that the store had the Model 480l on display. I tried it with the single finger level type blade system on the display unit and it worked great. But, when I got home opened the box, it was the model 481 with the rotating type blade attachment. Never used it. Took it to the return desk, and the clerk agreed. He couldn't get the blade in. Ryobi tried to improve something that works for other brands. As the saying goes "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" January 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Becareful Be careful on the reviews.....The reviews may be for Model JS480l vs the model now being sold...JS481l. Note the on line manual is for Model JS480l. The JS480L model has a lifting type blade attachment mechanism while the JS481L has a twist lock blade attachment mechanism. I purchased and returned the JS481L model since I found it very very difficult to insert the blade....not impossible but extremely difficult.. In fact the tool dept guy mentioned they are getting returns for this problem. His comment was "I wouldn't buy this" Also, if I remember correctly the JS481L model accepts only the Tslot blades and not the U. I might be wrong on this but its worth checking out. I might have encountered a couple of bad JS481l units but beware and make sure the saw meets your needs before purchasing December 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good for the money! Was pleasantly surprised at the quality when compared to others in this price range. Easy to adjust speed and orbital action with nice graphical description on side. Would prefer a more positive feel when installing blade to know its locked in, but at high speed I've had no problem. Blade stays put. Seems well made. At this price, you can't go wrong. I would say the overall rating and quality on this saw is "very good", not just "good". April 5, 2013
