Rated 2 out of 5 by mriley73 Cord is not good
Have had to change cord out a couple of times, bearing slips and switch sticks sometimes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wayne A real stand up product even on a rainy muddy job site!
Super cutting power and easy to handle. Saw went 3 months in the rain at a muddy job site and still handles well. Would recommend to contractors!

Rated 1 out of 5 by stu36559 DO NOT BUY!!!!
I recieved my carpenter journeyman card in October 1974. I have used many worm drive saws from Porter Cable, Skil and Makita and they were all pretty much interchangeable as far as dependability. However, this Rigid Saw has been a pain since I bought it. I own the MAG model and it was about $50 cheaper so I expected their would be a tradeoff but not the rattling, the lack of power, and now I have used the lock button to change the blade and I guess I missed the warning where it said "permanently lock." . Spend the money and buy a Skil or Makita and avoid the headaches when it is 100 degrees and you just want to finish..

Rated 4 out of 5 by psjerry good saw
I bought 2 of the worm drives did my research and they dont use cheap plastic gears like many now and they are a heavy duty product.........2 draw back no guide i would pay the extra 5 bucks for it if it was in the box HELLO RIDGID think a little.....second the cord ends seem to wear out and get loose i have had to replace both cords on my saws i ended up putting 25 foot long on there since i had to replace them anyways......but other then that the saw worked great

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigdave awesome saw
I bought this saw to replace my skill worm drive that was only a year old that burned up. but what a difference in quality,comfort and performance the ridged is so much more I am glad I decided to buy it. only one draw back it does not come with a rip guide which I thought was strange but they can be ordered on line and they were less than 5 bucks that's a deal.. overall great product!!
