This saw replaced an old Black and Decker that was given to me by a friend When shopping online the Ryobi has alot better warranty and price. After a lightening strike in doing repairs on the house the old B &D gave up the ghost man I am proud owner of the Ryobi What I put a tool through is a true test of its quality I am empressed this adds to my collection of Ryobi tools
Bought the saw along with the drill driver/impact driver set. ( wanted to upgrade from my old ones ) They made my job a lot easier putting a deck on my house. So far I am very happy with the saw and drill set I bought. Plan on buying more of your products in the future.
The saw its self is very easy to use. the added laser helps tremendously. But the instructions to put it together are vague at best. There are no diagrams at all. I did in fact find a YouTube video that showed you how to initially put on the blade. After that it's been awesome to use.
I was looking for a saw tough enough to do a clean cut through 2 inch acacia wood for the right price with a laser and this surpassed my expectations. In fact it worked so well I did some cuts with this that I could have done with my table saw.
The saw feels well balanced but the laser is barley visible, the markings for depth of cut and angle of cut are barley visible and the saw does NOT come with a small adjustable fence for small rip cuts. I have used the saw a few times and the saw actually preforms a little better than I expected a $50 saw to preform.
