Ridgid 18V Brushless 10-inch Miter Saw

Ridgid 18V Brushless 10-Inch Miter Saw

Now that Ryobi has officially announced its new 18V dual battery miter saw, it seems that the AEG model is imminent. For the US launch, the Ridgid 18V Brushless 10-Inch Miter Saw will be renamed as it always is. AEG is simply the Australian brand of the same tools. Often, taking a look at their website gives us insight into what’s coming next for the popular Home Depot exclusive brand.


So what should you expect?

A 10-inch blade and brushless motor are the easy ones to pick out. If all goes according to plan, we’ll see a dual bevel function that’s capable of 45 degrees to the left and right. Mitering goes both ways as well with 45 degrees to the right and 50 degrees left. No-load speed will be 3900 RPM – a touch lower than Ryobi, but presumably with more power.  To compare that on a more Pro level, that’s also a touch lower than Milwaukee’s 4000 RPM on the M18 Fuel Miter Saw. 100 less RPM isn’t a big deal, especially if they channel extra power to the torque side.

The big technology making this happen is the use of two batteries. Like Makita and Ryobi, the Ridgid 18V Brushless 10-Inch Miter Saw connects two 18V batteries via series connection to bring the power up to 36V. Don’t expect Ridgid to stop with one tool on this dual-battery system. It opens up plenty of possibilities including a table saw down the road.

Competition

When the Ridgid 18V Brushless 10-Inch Miter Saw makes it to the US, it will make the fifth full-size cordless miter saw with 10-inch models from Ryobi, Milwaukee, and Makita along with DeWalt’s 12-inch FlexVolt. Milwaukee is the only brand to stick with a single battery 18V model. The other four all make use of a dual-battery system.

Cost

AEG’s model currently runs $799 in Australian currency which converts to about $600 for us. It comes as a kit with 2 batteries and a charger. The Australian kit comes with 6.0 amp hour batteries – something else to look forward to.

Many newer battery opp tools r greast and worth the investment for numerous resons… however, with my strongest opinion, the larger tools/saws should have a power plug in option in addition to running on battery…
