Cuts okay but am having intermittent switch issues. Sometimes doesn't start when pull trigger. Also, as a left hander, saw is highly right hand oriented.

I like the convenience of being cordless, but the power is an issue. It lacks the power of a corded machine. Overall, I would rate it at 3.5 out of 5.

Power is great but the slide isn’t smooth as the a/c unit. Bearings and rails seam to be sticky. I have cleaned and lubed with me help.

  • November 19, 2018

I bought this saw Friday. Opened and adjusted it on Saturday. I found the linear bearings to be rough, and slightly gritty. I did play with the store display as well, it too, was rough. I decided to box this back up, without using it. I have plenty of Green 4.0 AH packs, and many Green tools. All are hit or miss. I did like that the power head was very solid in terms of very low deflection, which is what made me put it in the cart to begin with. I also was impressed with the cut capacity. However, the markers for indicating angles on the angle scales are just as poor as can be. I noticed this when adjusting the angle stops, and I found that I had to adjust the pointer as well (for 0 degrees, when tilt was squared.) The pointers are fairly blunt, or appear blunt with thick bright green PLASTIC. They also do not hold very securely, and the pointer will pivot easily about the screw. I can see the plastic creeping and deforming over time, as it did take some torque on the screw to make them reasonable tight. Even tight, you can push them over with your finger. Frown. The tilt scale gauge was a sticker. It had ripples in it as well. Yuck. I appreciate what Green has done with this saw, but they flat out cheapened out on basic things, which really cost nothing. A metal scale would be normal, and vastly better. A metal pointer that wont mush when tightened, or pivot with finger pressure when tightened, would be appreciated. I am going with another red tool. I would have bought the M 18 saw if it was in the store I was at. I got through the project with other tools. If you are a hobbyist with a stack of only Green packs, this can work for you. I have no doubt that it cuts well. I just find quality to be a better value, than just price. I want something better, and figured with this saw with 36 V, and a few good reviews it would be fine. Can't stomach the plastic pointers and bubbling sticker for scales. I did want to love it, but I can't get past the junk scales. A wrench for adjustment of the stops wasn't included. They should included it! I believe it is 3 mm hex. There was an Allen wrench with Phillips tip, was included to allow blade change, and adjusting the back fence. I know Green can do better.

  • January 10, 2018

While the product itself seems to function well as a miter saw, I purchased it for the laser capability. This function does not work correctly and the closest you can put the laser line to the saw is 1/8 inch. I have had it in for repairs to the authorized center and it is now been over two months (7 weeks for this latest time.) And the repair center refuses to return it to me. I would never buy this particular tool from Ryobi.

  • A few features shy of a homerun.

I am a huge Ryobi fan. They have the consumer hardware market dialed in. they offer innovative products with great quality at affordable prices. when I saw this announced I started lusting after it as I was in the market for a miter saw and this one seemed awesome for the one plus lineup. It is a very nice saw but just didn't quite measure up to their corded unit. First is the power. It has enough to get through a piece of 2x12 lam-beam but not much more than that with the p108 batteries. I tried the p103 batteries and it made it about 1/4 the way through. Ok for sure but not wow power. Probably it would be fine for 95% of what you would throw at it. Second was the build quality. it definitely feels like a plastic saw. the handle is thin hard plastic which is painted to look like the "grip zone" soft overmolding but is is definitely not. The short time I had it the paint started to wear and would not be long before my nice new saw looked and felt old. the trigger and safety mechanism seemed thin and kind of fragile. The spring for the saw head was not tuned for the weight of the saw and so would spring up and bang against the stop and rattle like crazy. Probably not good on the battery contacts to do that repeatedly. The small arbor lock button was fidgety and didn't lock the arbor most of the times I tried. Third is that it was missing basic features found on cheaper saws. No overmoldung for comfort. No depth adjustment for dado cuts. No table extension arms. These are little things but they are charging about $100 more than the corded version so one would expect them to be included. Maybe they will figure out a way to make the next version hybrid powered, that may convince everyone its time to go with the one plus option. This version seems not quite there yet. If you don't care about the missing features and plastic build and you really need a battery powered saw for a jobsite its fine. if you don't see yourself being too far away from the mains go ahead and stick with the corded model.

  • July 24, 2017

The saw is exactly what I am looking for however when I hit the trigger it doesnt start, may take 2-3 times pulling the trigger for it to start...... very annoying. I have used it for a couple projects and cuts very well, seems to be accurate.
