Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw with usable power! This saw is unique in my tool arsenal as it is the only tool that I bought independent of a project requiring it. I just wanted it and it has since proved itself to be invaluable. This saw is powerful and it is usable! I've used many reciprocating saws that where big, heavy, and intimidating. They make lots of noise and often vibrate things apart before they cut them apart. This saw is a winner because it is so usable. It stays where you put it and goes where you point it and makes quick work of anything in-between. You are going to want a high capacity battery to power it as it does use some juice but that is to be expected. All in all a great tool! May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lightweight and powerful I finally broke down and brought this saw to install new double entry way doors and was extremely happy.I't took about two minutes to cut through the existing nails and screws they had holding this door in, and the door was out in no time. Great investment.I felt like a kid in a candy store. Great product!!!!! December 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome product this is an awesome reliable durable great product that I love using on a daily basis!! December 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw. Good torque, nice feel. Very easy to control and the power wont leave you hanging. November 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw is light and durable. Got this saw for Christmas last year and have used it many many times. We build haunted houses all year round for charities, and this saw gets a tough workout every day. It is light weight and very durable. I got the large battery and would recommend it to anyone considering buying this saw, the saw is very powerful and needs a battery that will last. I have cut through just about everything this saw should be able to handle with no problems at all. Love this saw!!!!!!!!!!!!! November 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by You'll never have to buy another one. Have never found a job it wouldn't handle. Have worn out 100's of blades of all types and the tool still looks like it did the day I bought it. Have owned several other brands, but have never seen one perform like this one. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like the LED light feature. It really helps out in dark work areas. Overall this saw by far is the best and most powerful of all the 18v saws out there. Super durable and very light. Great tool! Ridgid fan for life!!! November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent 18v Tool For an 18v tool this Recip saw is awesome. With high quality blades it makes quick work of whatever I have put it to so far. The grip light and the grip itself are great for working in dark areas and the tool is not too heavy but you can tell that it is well made. It eats batteries but that is expected for any 18v tool working under heavy load. And the tooless bit change works great. November 4, 2014

I want to buy this for my son. He already has a Rigid Battery AC840086. Will that battery work with this saw?

Thanks,

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

Yes, all RIDGID 18V platform tools and batteries are interchangeable. However, the RIDGID 18V Lithium Ion batteries do require their correct charger.
