          Great saw
          Very simple to use and high rpm's for quick cuts. Another reviewer stated that "Battery will not let the blade guard lay flat". This is why its helpful to take a few minutes to read over the operation portion of the user manual, folks. The wheel guard rotates by hand into four different positions to adjust the angle. I attached pictures demonstrating the range between positions one and four. All in all, it's a versatile, easy to use saw that packs a punch.

            Amazing tool and super compact size
            I bought this a month ago with the extra free battery kit. It's an amazing tool, specially when you install custom blades. I ordered a 80 mm 3-1/8" saw blade that fits, a bit tight to insert but it fits. 3" inch blades are much more expensive. The reversible feature is great, I can put the blade to cut away from me. Cut wood great and other materials with the right blade. The guard is rotating to adjust to your perfect angle.

              Poor Design, Bad.... Worthless Tool.
              Engineer / Design Team went to sleep on this one! Never held a Tool ! Battery will not let the blade guard lay flat. By far the worst Ridgid tool I own. Glad it wasn't my 1st... And I own a lot! I owned one of the 1st Makita Mini saws for cutting wall plates for alarms in the 70's. So I brought this one. Don't even want to sell to someone else at a Yard sale! Does Ridgid need Real Working Craftsman to test their Tools!!!?? Missed on this one!!! Still a Ridgid Guy! Need a Mini saw!

                Excellent for it's intended uses. Great to see things being done right.
                Seems quite strong for it's size and intended use. The guard swivels to help get it into tighter spaces. Worked great cutting tile and some steel parts. Ill be modifying it into a tiny chop saw. It seems to have tight enough tolerances for my interest, and plenty of blade beyond the motor, unlike all the others I looked at. And, of course...brushless motor. Excellet! The battery moves a bit in its slot, and the hex key (allen wrench) falls out of it's storage spot. Those are the only 2 things that i see weren't thought out well. The plastic feels like a solid quality, and the ergonomics are nice. I like that it's 18 volts also. Milwaukee's version (made by the same group) is M12, which makes the handle stupid fat, because the battery goes up in it. I have that one also, and they're comparable power and quality wise. The M12 is just bulky, and when you are wanting the smallest tool for the job.....

                Good Tool for the Right Job
                I had a specific need; to make clean cuts through tile already installed on the floor as part of a hardwood flooring repair. The included tile blade did fine. The cut included five 12-inch tiles. Not sure home many more cuts the blade will make but the tool performed fine. Cuts were made dry creating a lot of dust. I kept a shop vac running near the cut which helped.

                Battery NOT on the way!
                I first thought the design was flawed as the battery was getting in the way. BUT after reading someone else's review, I found out the the entire guard can rotate in 4 different angles up to about 45° to make up for this! Instantly went from a 2* to 5* product! I also hope this helps others because this is a great tool!

                  Great tool. Now includes 7/16 and 3/8 arbor washer
                  Love this tool. Especially that ridgid listened and added a 3/8 and 7/16 arbor washer. It cuts a ton better than my m12 cut off tool. Does not cut off or struggle going through materia.

                    This unit is awesome!!
                    I bought this unit and after I did, I started reading the reviews. Me being the type of person I am, I started messing with the head of the unit and found if you apply some turning pressure to it, it will change the angle in witch it cuts. So for everyone giving a 1 star due to the battery being in the way, this unit has the capabilities of clicking into 4 different angles. I hope this review helps anyone with this "issue".

                      The tool has potential
                      Reviewing the saw before deciding to purchasing I found no legible PT# for the 3" discs. That seems to be a draw back. Hope the picture help to find a vendor that can support the consumables..
