Ryobi P590 18v 2-1/2” Capacity Portable Bandsaw

While it’s not surprising that Ryobi has another new tool coming to their ever growing 18v One Plus battery line, the new tool in question is something you’d expect from the more pro focused brands which is the Ryobi P590 18v 2-1/2” Capacity Portable Bandsaw. While the P590 18v portable bandsaw is a smaller tool with a 2-1/2” cut capacity, it should be a great option for cutting electrical conduit, gas pipe, and smaller hollow and solid steel.

My thoughts: While this hasn’t showed up for sale yet, the Ryobi flyer on the Home Depot website includes it and shows a few of the features and specs, as well as pricing. I did look up the manual to see about more specs but the Ryobi manual site hasn’t been working so I couldn’t open it at the time of writing. What the flyer does show is a cut capacity of 2-1/2”, 560 SFPM, a 32-⅞” blade, and up to 100 cuts per charge through 1” black metal pipe using a 9ah HP battery, which is pretty impressive runtime. There’s no word if it features a variable speed trigger, but I hope it does to provide maximum control starting cuts and high speed to power through larger materials. The only other feature I can spot for sure is a quick release tension lever for changing the blade. The low price point of $99 makes this look like it will be an excellent small saw for electricians and plumbers who are using the Ryobi One Plus 18v battery platform.
