18-Volt OCTANE Brushless Cordless 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw (Tool Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 109.

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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good I have only used this once and I am impressed. My husband and nephew tried it out on some pine 2x6's and they said it cut like butter through the boards. Home Depot had a great deal, buy the 2 batteries with charger and get a free tool. For 149.00 I got the saw, batteries and charger. We used the 6 ah battery, It also comes with a 3 ah. The battery set also comes with a bag, the saw did not, but the saw fits perfectly in the battery bag. I feel this set was money well spent.

The saw was easy to assemble, noise was much better than expected. CON: the trigger has a thumb saftey button to be able pull trigger to run, its VERY STIFF. I RIPPED SEVERAL Wet treated 2*8 MY THUMB WAS VERY SORE. 2. The straight line for saw is acurate for cutting, but is difacult to see. Mine now has been colored RED for better contrast. 3. dust collection poor. BILL
