Questions & Answers

Does the saw come with a battery charger?

Asked by: Mike
This saw includes 5Ah battery and 30 min rapid charger. I called to find out why it was a different charger than my 18v drill. My drill came with the basic 1 hour charger so it is a nice upgrade.

Asked by: juan
You’ll have to order it on line most likely. Most Home Depot in my area don’t carry many ridgid tools in store they always tell me to go online and they’ll ship it to me. Very good tools and warranty.

Customer Reviews

18-Volt 7-1/4 in. Cordless Brushless Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 136.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was quite a find I started out wanting to replace my heavier 10 inch miter saw with a lighter saw due to my new living arrangements, carrying it up a flight of stairs when I want to use it. I couldn't believe my luck in finding this (it wasn't even on display). It's light, only has a 7.25 inch blade but is a slider and makes bigger cuts possible, has not just one but two bevels, and doesn't need to be plugged in. All of this is great for me. It is a strong saw even though it is battery operated. I haven't used it enough to have the battery run down yet, but strength is the important thing for me. I will not be a heavy user of this saw. My first project will be crown molding throughout the house. I've practiced making cuts and perfect. I'm using 4 5/8" crown molding. A standard 7.25 inch blade would not work, but the slider makes it a piece of cake. This is all the miter saw I need, and I will give my 10 inch corded saw to a relative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been waiting for this one. I've been waiting for Ridgid to release a saw like this and I'm not disappointed. I have another Ridgid miter saw (it's awesome, works perfect, but it's heavy to move without the stand). I was looking for something lightweight and one that I could easily place into the back of my truck. Based on the size, you could also easily place this into the backseat or trunk of a car as well. I'm pleased with the weight/maneuverability of this and moving it around is an easy one-person job. This is huge for anyone used to these saws. I can't express that enough!! The cuts are precise. It has an included LED light/cut line that works perfect. The adjustments are simple enough. The handle folds down for easy transport and storage. The dust collector worked well. (Note, not all miters do well in this 'dust collection' area). It is 18V, so no power cords to trip on or worry about bringing with you. It includes a 5amp battery and charger. This is a strong battery that will provide plenty of cuts for the average situation. However, I always recommend an extra battery as a best practice for any cordless tool. I fully recommend and happy with the purchase.

As a professional remodeler for the past 30 years, I'm very picky about the tools I buy. I did quite a bit of research before picking this one up, and I can't be happier with my choice. I own this saw. And I own a DeWalt 10" miter saw. Since getting this Ridgid unit, I haven't used my DeWalt one time. Not once. The Ridgid saw not only has all the power I could want (it'll cut 2X material all day on the 5.0 amp-hour battery) but it's precise, quiet, and reliable. Oh, and it weighs about half of what my DeWalt weighs, so it's MUCH easier to lug around. This is no toy saw, like I've seen in some of the reviews. It's a real tool, and gives my corded DeWalt a run for the money every day. And I'm a complete tool snob. I can't give this tool enough praise. Five stars all the way. So many PRO features, and not a single CON.

Took... used it for the first time this weekend to cut a few pieces of baseboard I have to replace. Took saw outside no set up needed and made my cuts. Worked perfect. Paid only $199 for it so for the price and my needs I could not be happier. The fact I do not need to unwind extension cord made life so much easier b/c that would have taken as long to do as the few cuts I had to make. For $199, if you can find it, I would grab it, for $399 or $350, that is a whole different story.

That is because the saw stopper is a little too high. But the good news is that you can easily adjust that. Remove the saw stopper and you will find a washer underneath. If you remove that washer, you will solve the problem and the saw will cut all the way to the end. After you remove the washer, make sure you put the stopper back so you do not lose the stopping feature on the saw. See the picture below Overall a good lightweight saw if you are cutting a lot of 2x4 and trimming. If your typical cutting work is larger boards, you should be looking at a larger saw

Not ideal for the framing contractor or for heavy duty use but for the weekend warrior and for most DIY projects it is perfect. Incredibly lightweight and with battery power you can use it anywhere you need it. Plenty of power for cutting through 2x4 and 2x6, also have cut plywood with it no problem. The included 5 amp hour battery lasts a long time, i used it for a few hours and still had 2 bars left when i was done. Only thing that could make this better would have been the hybrid option that Ridgid has for their lights and fan so that you could plug it in when you have power available and save your batteries during long projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cordless miter saw I really love my new miter saw. I already have a large 12" corded miter saw, but I wanted a smaller battery powered one for smaller one day projects. This one is perfect. I have been using it to cut 100 year old oak reclaimed barnwood. The boards that I've been cutting are over 1" thick and 6" wide. The saw has handled them easily. It was perfectly accurate right out of the box. It was easy to assemble and get started with. This saw is going to be perfect for weekend projects and for taking to other locations for short projects. I love this. I love these Ridgid brushless power tools. They are so strong!

Two months in - used on a few projects - a few notes: - nice cut height - can cut 3 1/2" trim vertically - the motor is slanted up to keep it out of the way - good flexibility - dual bevel, good cutting depth, cordless working well, good placement of carrying handle, etc - reasonable weight and size (good for storage and transfer) - for indoor work, the LED light works well for sighting the blade - no need for a laser (the 'shadow' of the blade shows up on material) - have benefited from the lifetime war on other Ridgid tools Would like to see extensions that I've seen on some larger Craftsman saws (they slide out the sides to help support material, but can be slid back in) - and a better dust collection system (true of every miter saw I've ever used though)
