Ridgid R8653B

Ridgid’s been pumping out plenty of brushless 18V powertools last year and one of them was the 7-1/4″ 18V brushless circular saw R8653 that came packaged with the their brushless 18V compact hammer drill. Now Ridgid will be selling this same brushless cordless 18V circular saw as a baretool so existing Ridgid 18V users can enjoy a cordless brushless circular saw without having to spend extra for unnecessary batteries and charger when they already have them in their collection.

Just like the original Gen5x brushed circular saw, this bad boy sports many similarities such as the aluminum shoe and it’s biggest selling point that it’s a 7-1/4″ cordless circular saw. In a sea full of 6-1/2″ or smaller cordless circular saw this will no doubt catch many power tool users attentions when grabbing for a cordless circular saw.
