Questions & Answers

will this saw cut through bolts for automotive shop purposes?

Asked by: charlie
Yes! But I've found that you have to use the right blade for the job. A cheap metal blade works but take a touch longer and wears faster compared to a more expensive blade.

Customer Reviews

THRU COOL 6 Amp 1-Handed Orbital Reciprocating Saw Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 178.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Saw Used saw to cut aluminum channels D=2.5" x Flg=1" x Web=.125". Blade stayed on line and did not travel. Went thru the aluminum very easy. Haven't used enough to know durability. Did not experience the blade wobble reviewed by some; nor the unpredictable trigger. Trigger was very consistent from start to maximum load. Align the stationary guide against the item to cut and slowly start the cut. It went through the aluminum with minimal effort. Definitely a one handed saw, easy to control. Great for tight spaces. The .5" stroke is minimal for a saw of this type. Definitely will not replace your 12 amp Sawzall. This saw will get you into tight places that the much larger Sawzall will not fit. It's a lightweight, one handed saw for lightweight work.

THIS is one of my favorite saws. not that i use saws so much. stupid thing locked up and started smokeing today. i was cutting drywall. no studs or anything just drywall. i said i would recomend it because i still like rigid and this is the only saw like this style. i had it a year so probably no chance rigid is going to fix it. i love rigid saws as a rule so this one infuriates me. has a great feel great power but so far life expectancy is on the low side.

Does everything a jigsaw can't. Not intended to replace a real full size reciprocating saw. I put is thru pretty hard product with fiberglass over wood on a boat every day. The bearings in the reciprocating head last about two years, the motors never give out. I have purchased 4 of them over the last 7 years. DO NOT BUY THIS FOR THE RIDGID WARRANTY, IT SUCKS. I would never recommend ridgid tools to anyone. This saw is all that is worth the money.

Purchased to use for pruning some trees and worked very well and had no issues with cutting or balance on ladder. Very easy to change blade. Would purchase again.

This is a great product. it has cut through every thing I put in front of it. I purchased it to cut up an old car. and it has done it flawlessly. I especially like the orbital option. Plus it is much liter then my old Milwaukee saws all.
