RIDGID’s subcompact 6-1/2” cordless circular saw R8656B

Subcompact Brushless Cordless 6-1/2” Circular Saw from RIDGID

This new little saw from RIDGID (item R8656B) delivers up to 5,000 RPM and has a 2-1/4” depth of cut at 90 degrees to easily cut through a 2X or through three stacked sheets of 3/4” OSB. It has a 50-degree bevel capacity to cut at the most common angles, and a 1-5/8” depth of cut at 45 degrees. This tool is 27% more compact and 30% lighter than RIDGID’s R8657 brushless 7-1/4” model (this one weighs just 7-1/2 lbs.). It’s set up for a vacuum attachment and accepts hoses that are 1-3/4” or 1-1/4” in diameter. It’s compatible with all RIDGID 18V batteries and is backed by the industry’s only lifetime service agreement. The lightweight and durable magnesium guard stands up to the toughest jobsites, and there’s an LED Light for improved visibility in low-light situations. It measures 12.91” x 8.86” and is 7.56” tall. WoodEzine saw it on The Home Depot website for $209 with a 4 Ah battery and charger.
