Q:Why is the R8655 18V 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw only rated for 3700 rpm? Is there another like this that has over 5000 rpm's and left sided cut?
by|Dec 29, 2021
6 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  That 3700 rpm is the typical speed of the blade that cuts wood the best.Anything faster would burn the blade and warp it from the heat and speed produced from friction.

    A:  I suspect the lower RPM, helps the battery last longer, and my use that does not seem to be a problem. I doubt they make a different left-sided saw. So far I have been impressed with the saw.

    by|Jan 4, 2022

      A:  If you use an electricity-powered saw normally this one seems to run a bit slow.  I find that it makes good cuts though, and stays on the line very well.   As for power...my worm drive saw is my go-to saw for power cuts, including masonry and concrete.  This will not work well for these issues.  But for most applications, it works great.  it is my go-to saw since I purchased it. The blade is on the left side, or inside if you are right handed.  I have never liked saws with the blade on the right side.  You get more dust on the left side if right handed, but it makes for quicker and more accurate cuts in my opinion. I like this saw very much--used within its limits. It would make a good saw for roof sheathing too.  No cords to deal with, and trip over.

                Q:A 6.5 inch blade is kind of an unusual size. Are there a variety of blades available in that size? Where can I purchase them?

                A:  Hi, Dickm. Thank you for your interest in the RIDGID 18V Cordless 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw Kit with (1) 4.0 Ah Battery and Charger. I'm sorry, no. We do not recommend using a different type of blade since the blade it comes with is able to cut what the saw is designed for. You can use it to cut all types of wood products. However, you can purchase extra blades from our parts supplier Gardner.

                  A:  6 1/2” is a standard size. Not as popular as 7 1/4, but blades are readily available at the box stores or Berlands. I use and love the diablo blades. They have a few diablo blades at Depot that fit with different numbers of teeth for rough carpentry vs. Fine Cuts.

                  Q:Is the depth of cut adjustable? Sometimes you want to cut a channel and not cut through. Many saws have this feature.

                    Easy purchase, no warrenty
                    I was able to purchase the product easy enough however I was not able to register the product for the life time warrenty. I have a bad battery that needs to be replaced but I can't get in touch with Ridgid. I went to home Depot for a battery replacement, they told me I must deal with Ridgid for a replacement. It appears there is no life time warrenty.

                    ridgid x4 6 1/2"
                    The 6 1/2” (x4 saw is my model) blade on the right side is my favorite go to saw. Ive burnt it up ripping 2x limber more than a foot, so careful on bigger stuff. But still keep a new blade on it and itll be your favorite too. Oh and dont forget yo sign up for the lifetime service agreement. Im waiting to see the brushless model. Thanks Ridgid team!

                      I bought this for the built-in dust extractor attachment. I had to cut a straight line through some floor leveler and was hoping that this setup (using a 6" diamond blade) would keep the dust down. Unfortunately the vast majority of the dust was thrown forward making a mess. I'm not sure if the dust collector helped at all...

                      Works fantastic!! Never lost power through my entire project. Ran just like it was corded and gives me a great option where I don’t have plugs but need to cut wood. Highly recommend this product!
