Great runtime using 4ah batteries. The miter cuts were accurate, the motor was smooth and the braking was excellent. At about 35 pounds, the saw is easy to load/unload at job sites. I've used it with a variety of wood types and thicknesses and I've been impressed. My only 2 complaints are that the left fence isn't tall enough to cut molding standing against the fence. A taller fence extension comes with the saw, but it will only mount on the right side of the fence. My other complaint is that the trigger safety release is very tiny and very flimsy. If I don't make a conscious effort to "baby" that safety, it will break off long before the rest of the saw has given up. But on the positive side of that, the safety and the On-trigger can both be simultaneously controlled with just one finger. That may be a miter saw First.

The Ryobi cordless sliding beveled miter saw is very simple to use especially for a woman. I loved it!! I was amazed how quickly the brake system stops the blade, how the laser guided me to perfect cuts every time. I felt like I was cutting butter, it was very smooth .! I completed installing my baseboards in my entire home !! Thank you Ryobi

In reality it exceeded my expectations. I'm not only a DIYer but I do this for a living as well and it took the place in my truck where my 10in dewalt rode. I threw a nice Diablo 80t blade on it as soon as I recuveved it, aligned the fence an it's been cutting spot on since very nice one ryobi.

I like it. It sorta flexes a little when sliding. Wish it was a 7 1/4 inch one. Plus extensions on them. Overall its a good tool for the money.

A go anywhere saw that gets the job done. I was skeptical of the power that a battery powered miter saw could provide but I was wrong. The batteries provide lots of power while keeping there charge throughout the project. I was also surprised at the weight and how light and easy to move around it is, making it truly mobile. I have used a couple of other miter saws in the past, all with terrible dust collection. While the Ryobi isn't dust free, it is orders of magnitude better with the wide dust opening and bag collecting quite a bit. The auto stop on the saw is an added safety feature, which quickly and safely brings the blade to a stop after each cut. You can tell they have put thought into the saw when there is a little slot to hold the allen key for adjustments to make sure everything is square. The stops at 90/45 are easy to set up and hold true to keep cutting at the angles needed.

Super tool! lightweight, came dead accurate out of the box, eats 2x8 without a blink, runs a long time on single charge. Approaches power of corded tool. Ryobi has come a long way yet gets very little recognition from high-end tool snobs. As usual, Ryobi may not be the best tool but is still the best value.

Light - Portable - Capable. All I can say is WOW. I am a pro contractor and I am invested in the One+ line. Ryobi's price point allows me to have a tool for every job type. Ryobi isnt some cheap brand. They have higher priced tools now - with quality to back it up. This Saw is a Boss with a new Diablo blade- Unboxed it and put it to work right away - Just finished up a custom woodworking job building support pillars for porch overhangs in a development project. Cut 4x4's, 5 1/4" molding, 1x8's - All beveled 45- left and right - 150+ cuts and still 3 bars left on 2 -P108 batteries. Perfectly true/square right out of the box. Ryobi is my choice. I have personally converted 4 crews to the One+ Line already this year. Ryobi - Thank you for bringing the right tools to the game. +++FYI Dont leave the batteries in the saw - I did overnight in my truck - and they were drained in the morning. No big deal. Just remember to remove them when your done (which is safer if kids are around anyway).

  • Not much different than a corded saw
  • June 01, 2017
  • Recommended Product

Not that long ago the first cordless saws that came out needed smaller than normal batteries. Now here we are with a 10" sliding miter saw that runs on cordless batteries. The Technology around batteries and cordless tools has come a long way. This R3650B cordless sliding miter saw isn't that much different than the 15 Amp 10" Sliding Miter Saw (TSS102L). Can do pretty much the same things but has a slow max blade speed of 4,000 RPM compared to 4,800 RPM of the corded version and it seems the blade takes just a little longer to get up to full speed. Those aren't big compromises for people who can really benefit from having a cordless miter saw of this size. It's not just the convenience of being to work on jobsites without power, without having to bring a generator, but also the safety of being able to set up wherever you want without having to run extension cords which could be a trip, shock or fire hazard. It's a big saw that weighs about 34lbs but the built in handle makes it relatively easy to carry. You can even padlock the trigger for extra safety and security. It can cut 2x lumber up to 2x12's, plywood up to 12" wide and can't think of any trim it wouldn't be able to handle depending on how you choose to cut it. If you cut crown moulding against the fence (which is how I do it to avoid all those odd miter and bevel angles) you can only cut trim up to 5-1/4" tall. I had no problem cutting material up to 3" thick including 2x3's stacked on top of each other. The miter angle is easy to adjust with detents for 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6 and 45 degrees. You can set the angle anywhere you want but those angles are common for trim. The bevel can be adjusted up to 45 degrees on either side but you'll need to remove the sliding fence extension on the right side to bevel towards the right. No detents on the bevel just a locking pin to get to 0 degrees. Bevel gauge is clearly marked and has markings for 0, 15, 22.5, 33.9 and 45 degrees. You can make the standard adjustments to make sure the blade is square to the miter fence, pivot stop adjustments as well as adjusting the laser guide left or right. Couple of things that bug me though... I wish they would have included the extensions for the base like they do on the corded version. It's probably not worth buying them and putting that money instead towards a miter saw stand like the Ryobi A18MS01G which will work with this saw. The other feature I wish it had was hybrid technology. Ryobi is one of the few cordless tool companies that has hybrid tools that can run off of batteries or plugged into an outlet. In my opinion consumers would really benefit if this tool had a hybrid option. Even more so than the smaller cordless miter saws. Hopefully they come up with an adapter that allows it to be used plugged in as well. While everything adjusts, and operates well and is well built you can feel the difference between this tool and similar sliding miter saws that cost much more. This will get the job done well and is sturdy enough to last a long time. Quality would be around a 4 but value would be a 5 at this price. I'd rate it closer to a 4 because of those issues, the missing extensions and the need to use two batteries when others can use 1 and the location the batteries are inserted makes me lean more twoards 4. Still, for the price, even with adjusting for the price of 2 batteries, you are saving a decent amount compared to other similar saws. Once properly adjusted and set up it will do the same job. Those were a couple of minor wishes I had but other than that the saw works exceptionally well and has no probelms cutting but for trim and other finish work you might want to get a finer tooth blade. Even though this tool is technically a 36V tool I like that they decided to use 2 batteries instead of create a new battery so you can use your current supply of One+ batteries.

Pros Accurate, Easy to Use, Powerful

  • December 20, 2017

The trigger malfunctioned the first time using it. I don't like the small safety button to push to engage either. Very awkward. Saw made for right handed person. Not Returning though. Going to fix myself and delete the safety switch. This machine is a beast!!! Lasts a long time.

This Ryobi is not perfect, but it’s certainly good and in some ways, almost as capable and more useful than a heavy duty corded saw. I am judging this in comparison to two other corded miter saws I also own, a 10” and a 12”. My 12” corded saw is a (heavy) brute, and will power through the toughest wood species and larger dimensions without hesitation – but it is big, heavy and corded. For the money, this Ryobi is a good value and great alternative to a corded saw. The other cordless miter saws I see on the Home Depot site cost more than this product, and all have less than the 36-volt combined battery power capacity of this unit (I compared prices of all products without the battery). This comparison suggests that Ryobi gives you more tool for the money. I’ve owned the Ryobi for a short period of time, and from all outward appearances the saw is fabricated of quality material and reflects a thoughtful design, instilling confidence that it will survive many years of medium-duty service. The Home Depot site information and product packaging indicate it carries a 3-yr. warranty. The owner’s manual provides no warranty information, but an online search suggests the warranty will cover most any defect not caused by abusive use. It takes a couple extra seconds for the blade to come to full speed, but this is a minor inconvenience in my opinion. And the batteries provide surprising power, comparable in many respects to my corded saws. Cutting 4 x 4 PT lumber at a 90-degree angle was a breeze, and it slowed down ever so slightly when set at a 22.5-degree miter angle cutting against a larger wood surface. The dual rail slide made it easy to glide the saw head to achieve accurate cuts with laser-guided assistance. The saw is limited to a 4” cutting height for molding placed in a standing position against the fence, before contact with the saw fence restricts further movement. However, it was both easy to set and to cut miters and bevels – the miter table rotation and bevel pivot adjustments were smooth, and the scales were easy to read. The saw comes equipped with a general purpose 40-tooth carbide tipped blade that functions well enough when new, but for more serious work I will probably replace it with a higher quality blade. There are also many additional features typically found on higher-end saws, such as positive (and variable) miter stops, fixed and sliding fences, locking knobs/buttons to fix the saw slide and blade storage positions and to lock the spindle (for blade changes), a laser guide, blade (changing) wrench storage, dust collector bag, workpiece clamp, and more. The laser guide is activated with a trigger squeeze and remains lit for about 20 seconds following trigger release, meaning no fear of running down the batteries for forgetting to turn off the laser light. The base was a tad smaller and less robust than the one found on my 12” corded saw, but it was wide enough to be stable; it can (and probably should) be secured to a plywood base using the holes in the four machined steel legs for additional safety and stability. The saw packaging states that it is capable of over 800 cuts per charge, which seems like a crazy long capacity to me. Still, if you’re like me you might not always remember to remove your battery for a recharge, so when you begin working the next time you might be operating on a partially charged battery. So, I was curious if the run time could be extended by using a single battery for small cuts, so that the second battery could be allowed to charge -- but the saw will not operate unless batteries are present in BOTH ports. It would be good if there was an option to run the saw with one battery, because sometimes even having some power available expedites completion of a job, rather than sitting through down time waiting for a battery to charge. In this case, if you want to continue work production when one battery runs dry, you will need a third spare battery, so that you can continue working while (at least) one battery is charging. I happened to leave both batteries in the ports overnight and the next day, one was almost dead (showing one bar), and the saw did not start-up. I replaced it with another and it worked fine. About the only substantive thing that I found disappointing was that the saw blade electric “brake” is very slow to respond to a trigger release, in fact, it made many additional revolutions after the trigger was released. As compared to my corded saw which has a similar feature, the Ryobi electric brake functions poorly – I would not count on this feature to help prevent an accident or minimize injury –more so because the sliding capability of the saw extends the reach of the saw blade toward the operator. Finally, the user manual, though compact is quite comprehensive. Although the saw operation is largely intuitive, I perused the manual and found it covered practically everything you might encounter using the saw, including an angle/pitch measurement reference for cutting compound miters (though I’ve developed my own method for this). In summary, eliminating the need for a power cord is a clear advantage, but also at 34 lbs, the saw is 13 lbs lighter than my 12” stationary saw, and yet it has a larger horizontal cutting capacity due to the sliding saw feature. These advantages will make this a “go to” saw when ease of portability, greater cutting capacity and quick and efficient set-up are desired. If you’ve ever hauled a 50-lb corded saw up two flights of stairs, and then hunted for a power source with extension cord in hand, you know what I mean – this saw solves that problem and I would recommend this fine product to a friend looking for a good light-to-medium duty saw.

Pros Accurate, All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Powerful Cons poor blade braking, requires dual battery to operate
