Questions & Answers

my fairly new ryobi circular saw just quit on me yesterday when I was sawing through a thin piece of shelving. Is there a reset button?

Asked by: Commander
likely defective assuming you are talking about laminated particleboard you did not hit a nail if your within the return policy period return it or exchange if not you might be able to exchange it for an another identical unit or for store credit or you could make use of the warranty

Use converter

Drawing 1440 watts, will this saw work well using a converter attached to the truck battery for a power source? JT
Asked by: JT
you need a surge current capacity equal to at least double the motor running current sometimes triple then your battery and cables on the low voltage side must be able to supply that current witch is gonna be a lower efficiency so my advice if you have a problem even if you got the start up current on your invertor would be to add a capacitor in parallel with the invertor say something to the tune of 5 farads to give you the starting current you could likely do with less but more is better in this case other wise it causes more ware on your electrical system and do not forget to leave the truck running or you will kill the battery less the 10 minutes invetor stops and then the truck wont start done you might want to think about an alternator upgrade anything less then 200 amps is just risky really 300 amps would not be over kill

How many watts does this saw draw?

I will be using a generator to power this saw and I need to know how many watts that it draws. Thanks.
Asked by: Bud
i would figure 1440 based on it being 12 amp multiplied 120 if the voltage dropped to 110 it would be 1320 I would figure it for 1500 for the ease of the math and a small safety margin always best to over estimate your draw a bit on this type of thing

saw starts as soon as i plug it inwithout using start trigger.

I don't have the manual.
Asked by: Rosie
the triger switch is likely shorted could also be the wires that attach to the trigger but 99.99 percent its the trigger switch its a mechanical issue most likely not an electrical one but rather its the actual switch or the plastic trigger that pushes on the switch its an easy fix if you have the skill to take it apart and put it back together I would advise against using it in the current condition as its a bit unsafe but unlikely to to over heat and or catch fire or shock you if used for short cuts using the plug as a power switch in a pinch on a job site you could still use it if you really had to but get it repaired or use another saw is the best option http://www.ereplacementparts.com/switch-assembly-p-977889.html?gclid=Cj0KEQjwzd3GBRDks7SYuNHi3JEBEiQAIm6EI0_GP_orklqbeA4zjHAlri6DwJvIMVlurK7qd8qVrJwaAp8A8P8HAQ this might the part and DO NOT test until completely reassembled and make sure its unplugged before you attempt any service or make sure the battery is removed

12-Amp 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 143.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good saw - buy a new blade Like others here, I didn't even bother with the blade that came with it. Bought a Diablo 24T, 40T and 60T (one each). So far I only used the 40T to cut some 2x4s - smooth cuts, plenty of power with a good blade. I also cut some relcaimed boards, some of which were 2" thick oak; these were part of an old barn that was at least 60 years old. With the 40T Diablo blade, this saw cut through the old oak with no problems whatsoever. Just let the blade do the work, and you're fine. For someone who doesn't pay my bills with this saw, i.e. homeowner with projects around the house/garage/yard, you can't beat $40 for this saw, and another $15 (avg.) for a good blade. I only bought the 3 blades, so I'd have 'em, and wouldn't have to run out for them when I needed them. It's not super rugged, the blade guard is plastic, so I wouldn't go throwing it in the back of a truck or toolbox with other tools - set it down gently. But I can't complain. Again, buy a good blade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good general purpose saw First and foremost don't use the blade in the box. It is beyond terrible and you'll think your saw is weak/defective/broken if you do. I tried to use it to cut some 2x4s and the saw was struggling. I put on a cheapie 24-tooth blade that I bought just in case and it was night and day difference! The first task with this saw was to remove the old rotted deck that the previous owner installed at my house. This saw had no problems (with the non-stock blade) cutting 2x4s and 2x6s for extended periods. Cuts were nice and clean even with a 24 tooth blade. Second I switched to an abrasive blade to cut some small pieces of tile for a back splash in my kitchen. The saw worked perfectly for this process and I was able to quickly make my tile cuts. The saw actually tilts if you need that functionality. I don't and found it slightly problematic because the screw came loose on the front and I had to find a way to rig it so that it wouldn't tilt. There is a lock button you can told down to keep the blade from moving along with a tool to unscrew the blade that makes changing blades very easy which I do like. As my summary says this is a good general purpose saw. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who is doing saw intensive tasks all day as it does get a little hot during extended use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A cheap saw that held up to abuse! I was a bricklayer for 20 years and I also built some homes, so I am use to professional equipment and tools. I sold everything when I changed professions, so when I had to knock out a wall at home due to ants I bought cheap just to get the job done. It worked great for the home repair and I have since used it to cut out and replace all the windows in the home. In addition, I did a blue stone patio at home and for a friend (total of about 900 sqft) using this saw to cut the stone w/a diamond blade. I also did a full fireplace block rough in and put fake stone on the outside w/real stone on the inside, mica slate hearth, block foundation for a mobile home, and a wheel chair ramp. I think it needs new brushes as it hardly runs, but for the price I am on my way to get a new one for another project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent DIY Saw I bought this saw to help me reconfigure and refinish my deck and for different odds and ends projects around the house. For my purpose, it does the job very well. Since I don't need to use the saw very often, I wanted to buy the lowest priced dependable saw. I believe this is it. I didn't bother w/ the blade that came with it and bought a diablo 24 tooth instead at the recommendation of others here. The only slight downside is that the saw is heavy (for me) and it does show it's lack of power during some harder cuts. (But you do get what you pay for.) All in all, excellent buy for those not looking to spend a lot of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A pleasant surprise My first time using the product was truly a surprise.I have been doing various forms of building all of my adult life,and I swore by some of the so called "better brands". As it turns out,those "better brands" are merely a reputation due to the length of time that they have been doing business. I am not going to sit here and tell you that this fifty dollar saw will stand up to the rigors that a two hundred dollar saw will,but for the price you won't be disappointed. I do this type of work for a living and it does everything I ask of it.If you're a do-it yourselfer ,you've found perfection without breaking your bank account.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you don't buy oversized, you can afford more. I know that this is not a forum for wood-bound philosophy., but hear me out. After years of buying Godzilla-level tools for an imaginary future need, I realize that the best tool is one that fits the needs you have. I'm a DIY guy. This really strong little circular saw is lightweight, compact, and right sized for the needs of a homeowner. I'm not needing this to frame out a few houses; I need to cut lumber for outdoor household projects every summer. Put a thin kerf carbide blade on this, as I have, and it'll pretty much do anything you ask of it. Be realistic...don't ask it to plunge cut 5/4 seasoned oak floors quickly. (and NO, I didn't :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the money I volunteered to make a cub-o-matic for our cub-scout pack. For my idea I needed a to cut some plywood. For the small project I didn't want to spend a lot of money so, I bought this Ryobi. It was dependable and worked great. On to the next project!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for the money I bought this saw to use around the house for various things. I am not a contractor or tradesman, but have worked in construction for years off and on - mostly for extra cash or to help out friends. I found the saw online, and then went to the store to check it out. It seemed heavy enough for my needs and the price was right so I went ahead and bought it, and also picked up a fine tooth blade as well as I expected to be cutting finish work as well. The balde that comes with the saw isnt good for much at all - so needless to say Im glad I bought the other one. So far, the saw has served well. I have used it on 2x3s, 2x4s, various plywoods, and other similar things. It is heavy enough to do what I have asked of it. I dont care for the onboard wrench storage however, as I am worried about losing it as its designed. Blade change is easy however. The guide needs to be reworled a bit, however I do like that depending on which side of the saw you are on, or which side of the guide you line up on, will determine the side of the cut. Overall a decent saw for the money, but not heavy enough for contractor or heavy uses. The vibration is a pain - once you line up your cut and then hit the power, it means you have to line it up again. It has good balance, and its easy to guide and to hold on to. A good saw for those who need one for around the house. (Invest in a couple good blades however - a rough cut and a fine cut and scrap the one that comes with it.)
