Ryobi One+ 18V Brushless Cordless 7-1/4″ Circular Saw Review

Ryobi introduced their newest P508 circular saw with a brushless motor and full sized 7-1/4″ blade. Lightweight at just 6 pounds, with a decent amount of power and run time. The 3800 RPM no load speed is a little slower than most, and the electronic blade brake stops the blade in just a second or two.

I got this saw free with the purchase of the hammer drill. What a deal!

Zac Crow says:

I got this for free when buying the hammer drill, which I was going to buy anyway for just drilling into brick.

Super excited to use it, I’ve used the 5 inch tons and love it

I found that the Ryobi cordless circular saw is much quieter than say my Dewalt corded saw. Many thanks for your info.

Daniel Gomez says:

I got it free with the promotion at Home Depot and I’m going brushless now so I’m good for a while and I like that the blade is on the left and not the right like the ridgid but both brushless saws are awesome great review

Good deal if you already have other battery powered Ryobi tools like blowers, leaf cutters, drills, etc, like I do…no need to buy more batteries/charges, just the circular blade. I’m getting one. My 18V Lithium P107 are more than enough.Thanks for the cool review.

I have the 5.5 inch one and really love it, but I think the cut max is 1.7″ So, for some 2×4/6/whatever I can’t cut all the way through especially if it is bowed or thick. Overall awesome tool and it has a full aluminum guard other than the bottom is clear plastic.

David Handley says:

Great review. Keep them coming.

This was a great review and the saw looks great. I am planning to get one as soon as I am able to sell my 6 1/2″ one.

Great Review, Will give you a BIG TIP, I think you will Like it. when you cut 2×4 or even 2×6< try using a Speed Square. Just hook it to the face of your 2x and now you have a stight fence to put the saws shoe aginest & match the blade to your marked to cut, You will find that you have less bind on blade, you always get a square cut on the wood all around it saves time , battery life and blade life. And ya don't have resquare your wood your working with. and I would bet you could have cut a extra 10-20 Pieces of 2x4. Its a hack all wood Framers use.

Vince Delaughder says:

Super comprehensive review! Thanks.

Curtis Larson says:

Great review. I probably won’t buy one, as I already have three cordless circular saws, but for some reason I really do like Ryobi tools. What I’d really like to see them do is build a line of compact tools like Milwaukee’s M12 line. I suspect that Ryobi’s cheap, lightweight build style would really lend itself to compact tools. Milwaukee makes good tools, but they sure ain’t light.

Pro1er says:

Another good review, but now you leave me torn as to weather or not to buy this saw. I’ve been getting away from Dewalt, which I’ve used for decades now, because the Ryobi tools and batteries are so much cheaper. I’ve been very pleased with most of Ryobi’s tools, not so much with others, whereas Dewalt has never let me down. The shortcomings of this saw are the plastic blade guard, no dust chute, and the stamped steel shoe. Those are some pretty serious cost-cutters that will affect the accuracy of the saw, (except for the the dust chute). And seriously, couldn’t they include a rip guide? I’d be willing to pay the extra 50¢ it would have cost them. I’m wondering if a rip guide wasn’t included because of the plastic blade guard.

Great review! Will you be reviewing the new Ryobi 18v canister vacuum and stick vacuum?

Carlos de la Cruz says:

Excellent review. I hope you’re right about the 6.0 or 9.0 batteries. I think it’s been long over due.
