if dewalt made one with their 36v bateries it would be a monster
The new saw takes a 7-1/4" blade which is much easier to find than the 8-1/4" the old model used.
Oh, the new saw was priced at $129 IIRC
I really can't understand why RIDGID did not offer one. With dual batteries it would be a sure seller, and that in turn would draw people over to the whole RIDGID tool line just to be compatible with the batteries in the miter saw.

If the build quality is decent it could turn out to be a handy portable trim/moulding saw especially with lithium batteries. Priced at 119 at my local HD. The 7 1/4 blades are a positive......inexpensive and ez to find
I saw the Ryobi Li-Ion CMS last week. Looks like it could be a great tool for anyone doing trim and probably up to a 2 x 4. Not sure if it would cut through a 6" board without flipping it though... but then again, how much 6" wide trim does one run into.
With Li-Ion battery, it could be a fairly decent tool without having to run to the charger a lot.
