    On question I have with Rigid is, are they going for the Hispanic tool segment of the market? I only say that because they named their new tool line “Fuego” or “Hot”. Personally when I think of electricity and power tools the last thing I want is it to be hot because that would mean its in-efficient.

    Not yet but Ridgid has been coming out with some very nice stuff that is causing me to take a closer look at their tools.

    No not yet. Dual bevel and light(guessing). I can see it being handy for a few quick cuts.

    wow they are definitely taking steps to up their game, now ridgid and milwaukee will be the only battery portable mitre saws for the time being. Kinda surprised it wasn’t ryobi to take the next step.

    I actually see more use for a smaller battery powered single bevel saw than a bigger battery powered saw. If bosch came out with one just like this I would buy it.

    Makita, dewalt, matebo, and ryiobi all have em

    Dewalt has a 20v version that has been out for a while.

    i definitley havent been impressed by rigids tools or dewalts.. the only tool ive had from rigid that never gave me issues was my 23 gauge micropinner..

    the only dewalt saw thats any good in my opinion is their table saws

    Agree with that. Ridgid does make a good pin nailer.

    I agree they are somewhere between diy and professional grade. Which makes sense because they are owned by tti and Milwaukee is there pro grade and ryiobi their diy line.

    It is also 13lb. lighter than the Bosch saw. Duel bevel and all.

    Incorrect, Makita was the first to come out with a 18v sliding compound miter saw years ago and Ryobi has had out a 18v chop saw for years also. @overanalyze doesn’t he have one?

    It’s a duel bevel. So you will not buy a tool unless it’s a Bosch? So you only have one battery platform?

    They do us good out here. They just switch it out. It cost too much to fix out here.

    I agree they are somewhere between diy and professional grade. Which makes sense because they are owned by tti and Milwaukee is there pro grade and ryiobi their diy line.

    The Ridgid tools are advertised as a pro grade tool and the wormdrive is loved by all that use it. The ½” drill is the second most used mixer in this market. I’ve been using the JobMax for years now and love it. Their sander and routers are good and at one time were made by Matabo.

    Ridgid routinely comes in as best value for performance in these tool line tests. Never the best, seldom the worst but good for the cost.

    I think Ridgid is stepping up their game and aiming at the Pros that come into the store to buy materials. Their new shop vac is an example, very well thought out. Their battery warranty is second to none.

    Yep Ridgid is really stepping up their game. This saw makes a lot of sense to me being cordless and light.

    Looks single bevel to me. And if bosch has a cordless tool that I need then I will get it. Otherwise I will get Milwaukee since I have their cordless stuff too. I don’t mind having more than one platform but I am not getting a third.

    That is what has stopped me from looking at Ridgid, not wanting or needing another battery platform. But with their new tools coming out hard not to be impressed.
