Fuego 12 Amp 6-1/2 in. Magnesium Compact Framing Circular Saw is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tried it out and sadly disappointed I bought this saw because it was compact, powerful, and lightweight. It also had a good warranty and with Home Depot Rigid tools you can return within 90 days. i used this saw on a small project where i had to crosscut 2 x 4s and rip some plywood using an edge guide. i was disappointed in my cuts and the performance of this saw. This is my list of complaints: baseplate is not perpendicular to saw blade by about 1 1/2 degrees, baseplate edges are not paralell to saw blade, edges are not machined flat., levers are molded plastic over a nut and will definetly round out over time with clamping down hard, also seems to have play in motor shaft. Overall, i wish the engineering team could have paid attention to the details i mentioned because this being one of the few compact, corded, lightweight saws available it could have been a winner. I am a former mechanical designer and i am fussy about my tools. Rework this saw design and I may try it again.--JB in Rochester,NY

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 6 1/2" Mag. saw I am a framing contractor. This was purchased to replace an old Skill 5 1/2" that we use up high to cut truss blocks, rafter tails, plywood, etc. where a worm drive is heavy and awkward. I really wanted to like this saw, because it has a a bunch of great features: It's light, it's reasonably powerful, it's small, it has a METAL FRAME (BIG deal, we destroy plastic framed saws) and it has a 6 1/2" blade, so it will cut 2X at a 45 degree bevel. BUT. It got returned after 3 days of use because it's Achilles heel is that is a plastic y depth adjustment lock that would perpetually come loose, could not be tightened (at least as near as we could tell) and eventually broke from being cranked on in an attempt to keep it locked. SO...I can't say it's either "Durable", or "Professional" as it states on the box, but it does have some things to recommend it none the less. For homeowner use, or maybe as a plywood saw, it would probably be OK. For commercial framing, not so much.

Went with Rigid as our contractor friend has used Rigid tools for years, and indicated he's been very pleased with them. Can't compare it to brands/models as I'm a novice, but I will say it seems very solidly built (some comments talked about something breaking on it, I haven't had it long but I don't see anything that's likely to break in the foreseeable future), reasonably light, and even for a novice like me it was easy to setup, adjust, and make a perfect cut on my first use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from to much power? first off. the blade of a circular saw should face away from the operator as the instructions say. any sidewinder saw is going to have blade right and worm drive left. soooooo I'd say use this saw right handed and be careful as it almost cut off my thumb and I'm a very skilled carpenter with 10 plus years experience. go worm drive over this saw. but if set on this saw it is accurate as all ridgid saws are

I must say it didn't disappoint. I built my entire 10x12 shed using this saw from cutting 2x4 to 2x8 for the door and window headers to panels for the outer skin. It worked like a pro. If you need a great lite easy to handle monster I recommend this baby. The lifetime warranty is icing on the cake. Go Rigid Go.

Seemed to struggle through pressure treated 2x6's (using 40 tooth diablo blade). Also barely enough depth to complete perpendicular cuts. But I was able to complete the task at hand.
