RIGID Octane Power where and whenever needed!
I built a 36 x 6 foot dock at my rural acreage, using all RIGID Power tools. (Circular Saw, Drill Driver, and the 18V Octane Brushless/Cordless Reciprocating Saw Blade) All the construction was done on my 3+acre pond...far from traditional power sources. I encountered a simple task that I had not planned for with my standard remote tool bag. I needed to cut 8 - 4x4 treated wood posts that I had sunk in concrete for the land base portion of the dock. A quick trip to a local Home Depot Store to add the RIGID Octane Reciprocating saw to my bag did the job easily and accurately. This is really a quality tool!

    Great saw...Long term review, 1st warranty repair.
    Purchased in July of 2013, I use this at least weekly. It has replaced a small chainsaw for pruning branches from 3/4" to 4", thinning trees, cutting stumps to the ground level. I've use it for sheetrock, and as a jig-saw for rough cuts. I cut metal pipes (up to 2") and flat-stock including half-hard O1, and high-chrome industrial bandsaw blades. Outside, inside, hot, cold...always worked great (use at least the 4aH batteries, the smaller kit batteries are near worthless with this tool). This Spring (2020) The trigger lost the variable-speed control, it was either off or full speed on. Warranty was simple, took to a local authorized repair center, paid a handling fee of $15, and exactly 1 month later I got the saw back and running great. May have been due to the pandemic, but I felt the wait was excessive and docked 1 star.

      SO FAR IT’S OFF TO A GOOD START!!! Had this tool about a month now so I can’t comment on it’s durability over time. For the time I’ve had it though I’ve used it extensively. Just had Issac Heat install a new boiler and tied it into an existing base board heat system that only covered about half the house. So I’m installing new base board in my master bedroom, master bath, and the front hall way of my sprawling ranch style home. Had to run the pex from the basement through and in the living room walls to the radiator locations The saw was instrumental in making chase ways and altering wood beams and studs for the job. This saw is flawless so far. It’s heavy and feels heavy-duty compared to the sears tools that I replaced. Should mention that I am using the blu-tooth 9 amp octane battery and I have two of those so no problems with continuous power for the saw. All in all looking forward to years of service with this RIDGID 18-Volt OCTANE Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless Reciprocating Saw.

      I already owned a RIDGID 18v impact and drill, so when I needed a reciprocating saw, I went with the one that worked with my other RIDGID batteries and charger. I loved my other RIDGID tools, and this reciprocating saw is no different. It feels solid and has plenty of power. I had previous experience with reciprocating saws by other popular manufacturers, but this was the first RIGID saw I've ever used and I didn't know what to expect. It's very nice, both thoughtfully designed and ruggedly built. I'm very impressed and very happy with my purchase and I expect this saw to last a very long time.

      I've been looking for a new reciprocating saw and have been very happy with my other Ridgid Home Depot power tools. I don't think any other power tool manufacturer offers a LIFE TIME Free Service Agreement. I registered my Ridgid power tools as required by Home Depot and the Ridgid company. I have not needed to use this warranty as of today, so I can't rate their repair or replacement policy. I must say both of my hammer drills have been working perfectly. The battery life far exceeds my expectation before they need to be recharged. I have not used the new reciprocating saw yet but it seems to be working perfectly in a test run.

      Lightweight, plenty of power, great battery endurance. As with all Ridgid tools, go straight to the ridgid website and register your new tool. You will need the original box, your HD receipt and serial numbers. If you select send copy of receipt to email, you will have a pdf copy that you can upload to ridgid. If you wait beyond 90 days after the purchase date you will not be eligible for the LSA lifetime service agreement, don't procrastinate, I have two tools that are not covered by the LSA, only the standard 3 year warranty. Are the octane batteries better? Worth the extra money? I am not convinced yet, I was more than pleased with the Gen 4 and 5 brushless motor tools. I do not like price increases. Fortunately the octane tools work with the older batteries.

        This saw is an absolute beast and packs alot of power and it has great run time with the 6 ah battery. I have the jigsaw and impact wrench as well and they both get excellent run time as well. I hope they release an octane circular saw soon

        I'm just a DIYer and woodworker and I own most of Ridgid's cordless tools. I was tasked with pruning tree today and the chainsaw wasn't starting up so I pulled out this saw with a pruning blade and got to work...It cut almost as fast - if not faster than my old chainsaw! Perfect. One I cut the big branches and they were on the floor I quickly chopped them up into smaller pieces. I've also used this for cutting down pallets and 2x4s with no trouble. Well worth the money. I was using just a regular 4 amp hour battery in case anyone is wondering.
