Cut Off Saw

The RIDGID 14" Cut Off Saw's powerful 15 Amp high torque motor powers through rebar, bar stock or complete bundles of metal studs. The heavy duty construction, hardened cut steel gears, and durable cast aluminum motor housing make this saw durable for any job site.

Rigid Cutoff Saw

Being a professional welder and mechanic I have used many different brands of tools. I find the Rigid Cutoff Saw to be a quality and useful tool. I am impressed with the overall heavy duty construction. The powerful motor cuts thru jobs with ease. I also like the horizontal handle. I seem to have more control over the saw. If this one wears out I will be purchasing another one. Thanks Home Depot for the great tool at a great price.

Used to use a Milwaukee until the boy took it with him to college. I customize cars and bikes so I use chop saws quite a bit. This saw measures up to my old milwalkee and it was half the price.

Reconditioned 14 In. Cut-Off Saw

Item arrived in a great box and was packed really good.
I was unsure of the quality of the product at the time of purchase but once I opened a box all my worries were gone.
Product came was in perfect shape and is working perfectly.
I was able to save $50 from the new item price and got a very high quality tool.
When I received the tool I decided to test it out and I proceed to cut a piece of 2x4 steel tubing. This tool had no problem cutting right thru it. Motor has enough power to go thru thick steel and appears to be very well made.
Highly recommended.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought this abrasive saw because of Ridgid's name and reputation but it is the biggest piece of junk I ever owned. I sent it back for service after about 7 months for a burned brush holder and worn brushes. It was gone for a month. Now less than 9 months later the brushes is gone again. It has no power, it smokes and grinds. I had the cheapest of another mfgs abrasive saws and it lasted for 9 years. This one might make it out of warranty but I doubt it. One thing I guarantee is I'll never buy another Ridgid tool again as long as I live.

Didn't Work

No, I do not recommend this product.
The blade came aligned so it would actually cut into the table. After I adjusted this it ran for a total of 20 seconds before it went out. Didn't get a chance to cut one part. I suppose it just blew a fuse, but I'm sending it back to Home Depot.

This was the first Rigid tool I purchased. I used to be a big fan of another leading brand, but now I am exclusively a Rigid guy. This saw is very powerful and well built. It is heavy duty, and the angle-adjustable clamp is my favorite feature. I highly recommend this saw.

This was an excellent product. Came in great condition. I would never have guessed that it was reconditioned. Thanks Home Depot!
