Ryobi One+ is the next generation of Ryobi power tools that are designed for professional tradespeople and DIYers alike, making them versatile enough to use across a wide range of applications. The saw was released with an improved battery system, easy blade change-out capability, and a bevel cut capacity up to 56 degrees which offer more versatility than other circular saws on the market. Whether you’re installing crown molding or cutting through two sheets of drywall at once, this saw has your back! It’s also got LED lights so you can work seamlessly under any condition. The only downside is that it’s a cordless saw, which means it’ll need to be plugged into the wall during the initial charge.
I present you Ryobi P508 One+ 18V Cordless Brushless 7 1/4 Circular Saw Review.
About the product
This saw is cordless and runs on an 18V Lithium-Ion battery, making it easy to transport to different job sites. It has an adjustable bevel cut (0-56 degrees) and a cutting depth of 2 1/4 inches at 90 degrees. The weight of the tool itself is 6.6 pounds without the battery which makes it light enough for almost anyone to use comfortably in overhead positions. The variable speed trigger allows you to find an optimal balance between precision and speed when cutting through materials, while the pivoting base provides additional support for rip cuts up to 12 inches wide. The blade change-out can be done quickly without any tools which means you’ll save time when changing blades throughout your workday. For added convenience, the saw also has a removable rear handle to transform this tool into a free stand. This is especially useful when you want to use the saw for extended periods of time without needing to secure it on top of your work surface.
The saw is best used by people who need to make thickness cuts through materials without having to adjust anything. It’s also great for people who want a cordless saw that can be taken from job site to job site. While this isn’t the most powerful saw on the market, its size and weight make it easy for anyone to use safely and effectively with minimal fuss or setup time.
What is good about this product?
This is a compact saw that can be held comfortably in hand with little fatigue. It has very few parts, which means it’s easy to maintain and upgrade as new technology comes out. The battery will last for several hours of use on one single charge so you don’t have to worry about recharging during your workday. The LED light illuminates the surface allowing you to see your cutting line more easily than other cordless models on the market. While there was no included blade when I purchased this power tool, the 18V Lithium-Ion battery system makes it very simple and inexpensive to replace blades as needed. Unlike most circular saws on the market, this model also provides a pivoting base for better support when cutting larger pieces of material. The tool-less blade change-out system is also very user-friendly and takes away the hassle of having to use tools every time you want to make a change. This allows users to keep working seamlessly throughout their workday without waiting or taking extra steps just to get back into action.
This saw is a great choice for people who need portability and ease of use. While it doesn’t provide the same power as corded saws, it has enough life for professional use while maintaining its weight and size. The features make this tool very easy to master quickly and perform well across many applications which makes it a good buy for both professionals and DIYers alike.
