Why cannot it be used as a cut-off tool (as per manufacturer's manual)?? Very disappointing, since cutting-off is the main use for cordless tools.

18-Volt OCTANE Brushless Cordless 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw (Tool Only) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 365.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The 1/4 impact driver is awesome, the 1/2 hammer drill is JUNK..... The model number is R8611506... The 1/4 impact driver is awesome, the 1/2 hammer drill is JUNK..... The model number is R8611506 for the hammer drill and this is the second kit that the drill has the same issue. On speed #1 there is no issue, works awesome. Switch it to speed #2 and this is where the problems start. If you let off the trigger quickly or suddenly there is a violent gear grinding and the chuck breaks loose after a few times, thus the bit falls out. If you slowly back off the speed until it stops its not to bad. Yes, the speed torque setting is correct and it happens on all three settings. The first one was so bad it would lock the chuck open or close and it had to broken loose. It looks like its going back to HD again for return and will not try a third time... I guess were back to Milwaukee for a new drill, really wanted to try Ridgid, especially with LSA option.

The redesign on the new Ridgid brushless impact is a welcome change, The 6 mode selector gives me the control to select the right amount of speed and torque for my project. The sleeker design means it can fit in places my older impact was unable to. Being that it's an octane tool you're able to unleash its full performance potential when paired with an octane battery. I can't believe Ridgid was able to put together such an amazing package pairing this tool with the octane hammer drill and two octane batteries as a kit. The Octane series of tools have been slowly becoming the industry's leading standard pushing peak performance to its limits. I have had the octane hammer drill prior to owning this kit and have been very impressed with its performance. Able to blow through a 4" solid concrete block in under 10 seconds. Overall the pure performance that these two tools give you will be more than enough for any DIYer, tinker and/or professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New impressive improvements to an already amazing saw. RIDGID has made some pretty cool improvements to their circular saw. To list a few- it now has an adjustable rafter hook! This a a major advantage, being that most farmers use cordless circular saws and are often up on top of a roof with open rafters and no place to set their saw. The next major improvement is the expansion of the battery bay. This now allows you the option to use the larger 9amp hour battery with out losing cutting depth. Although previous models were able to accommodate the larger batteries it often took away from the cutting depth of the saw. The third and most impressive improvement is with the motor. Now you can cut through pressure treated wood without the saw bogging down. This is an incredible improvement for me being that most of the time when we use our circular saw we're working on decks which is all pressure treated and composite materials.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Power, Terrible Chuck The drill has good power and ergonomics. The chuck comes loose during use. No matter how tight it is when you start. It seems like the combination of a week detent in the chuck and the violent motor brake shaking the chuck loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Go To I have always used my battery operated systems is a backup or a small job tool and relied heavily on my corded systems. this saw what it's 18 volt system large amp hour batteries and octane configuration is a game-changer for me. I was able to complete a 10 x 20 porch without ever unloading my corded circular saw. the promo deal on the octane products where you buy the fast charger the two batteries and receive a tool is not only fair priced but a great deal. the only issue that I have had with this saw is the egress of sawdust. and this is not really even an issue after quite a few cuts due to it not clearing itself of sawdust it needs to be cleaned either with a few blows of pressurized air orabrush. the saw does come with an attachment for a Shop-Vac that you can use I have used both and found that neither mitigates this issue. all that being said I feel it is a small price to pay for the power and longevity the runtime that this provides. the material used in its manufacturing seems to me to be prograde it does not bend or twist when in use. in summary I am very pleased with this product.

Put a Diablo 40t blade on it and you have a nice cutting machine. I bought the AC805 battery kits this month to get this and 3 other Octane tools so it was like buying this and getting the Octane 6.0, 3.0 and charger along with a great bag for 30 bucks. I have 2 Milwaukee Fuel circular saws that i compare this too and i am impressed. The machine will cut anything you throw at it. The brake works great which i like for safety. The vacumn attachment really does pull the dust if you need to cut indoors. It also comes with a rafter hook, but i don't use them. Tracking is spot on, and the preset detents for angle cuts are a time saver.

I picked this up as my FREE tool when purchasing the Octane 6Ah and the 3Ah combo. I had to build an new pair of steps and some lattice frames for my front porch. This was pressure treated wood that was still very wet from the store. I was pleased with the battery life of the 6Ah and the power of the saw. I only used half of the battery for this project, including a few extra cuts to to my error.

The Octane version seems to have much more power, and on paper it does vs the other 2 versions (Gen 5 Brushless non Octane, and Gen 5 Brushed). I have the Gen 5 Brushed version as well as this one which has a 3700 RPM max while this Octane version has 5000 RPM max. The Octane version also has a soft start which I find preferable. Truth be told, my original Gen 5 Brushed cuts pretty much the same. Worth the $20 bucks more for this version because of the longer run time and higher rpm, but if you have one of the other 2 versions, you do not need it. Pros vs Older Ridgid versions: Higher RPM, Soft Start, Rafter Hanger, Deeper cut, Dust Port Cons: Plastic blade guard (If that bothers you) Not as ergonomic as another brand (rhymes with Mosh) where the handle faces more upright giving you a solid "pushing forward" feel.
