  • Worm drive saw

    Bought it the summer before last when my 25 year old Makita sidewinder began to falter.
    Great saw on the whole, well balanced and plenty of torque but still smooth. There does seem to be a bit of run out at low rpms but the cuts are straight and true.
    Here's the BUT- the cord!!! Why would Ridgid follow all the above with a cheap, stiff and now easily broken in the cold cut rate, discount bin generic power cord?!
    What happened to the nice, QUALITY, flexible cords I have on all my other hand tools?
    I would gladly have paid the, what, $5 or $6 more...

    Agreed, cord length and quality are two things I look at when deciding on
    a corded power tool, and I buy a number of them at work for the crews.
    I probably bought 65k in tools of all types last year as part of my job.
