    You're talking about a corded 6 1/2" framing (circ?) saw? Most cordless circular saws are 6 1/2"

        6 1/2 framing saw

        Well I bought the saw about 2 weeks ago and just built a 16x32 deck for a customer cut everything with the new saw but the 4x4's. I wish they would have had this saw before I bought my worm drive saw. It's has ton's of power and feels like half the weight of my worm drive.

          Q: Is this a Ridgid brand CS?

          Not that I need another CS (I have four of various types) but what is the make and model number?

                  Ridgid and Porter Cable

                  Porter Cable SAW BOSS 9 amps @ 9 pounds weight. 6" blade, Left Blade $164.99

                  Ridgid Framing Saw 13 amps @ 13.70 pounds weight. 6 1/2" blade, Right Blade $139.00


                  It seems Home Depot's website has the wrong specs for the 6 1/2" saw.

                    The weight listed for the Ridgid saw is wrong the saw weights 8 pounds it sells $119.00 here in Canada.

                      I did list the correct specs for the this saw, as per:

                      http://www.homedepot.com/prel80/HDUS...ductOID=768886

                      Then there is the 7 1/4" saw
                      http://www.homedepot.com/prel80/HDUS...ductOID=732238

                      Home Depot Website seems to have the specs wrong, as I have seen other websites talking about the 6 1/2" saw weighing around 8 pounds, can't believe everything one reads.

                        Hi Jaco I should have been clearer I was not implying that you were wrong but that the web site info was wrong.

                          Hi Bob,

                          I was wrong at least from reading what was on the Home Depot site,
                          they are incorrect, I was comparing the two saws, I own the Porter Cable
                          and like the saw a lot but the New Ridgid you're talking about sounds very nice, being lightweight and powerful, more so that my Porter Cable and less $ too! Take care

                            All the worm drive saws i've seen have a 7-1/4" blade, not a 6-1/2". Atleast that's how it is on the west coast. Everyone out here uses the Mag 77 with the 13 amp motor, but over the past couple of years more and more people are using the Bosch worm drive because of the 15 amp motor, built in hook, quick connect power cord, and it bevels to 50 degrees.
                            The Ridgid worm drive saw looks like it might be ok, but I don't know anyone who owns one, but it weight 2 pounds more. That two pounds sucks when you're lifting that saw to make cuts all day long.
                            That's my 2 cents.
