  • Well if you bought one only a month ago, buy this one and take it back with your old invoice.

  • anyone got one of these?

    what's it like? performs ok?

    obviously it wont outperform a hardcore power corded one, but hopefully it isn't a weak little thing either

    • Erm, the OP does…

      • yep, as he stated……but he hasnt said what it performs like
        hence my question

        • I have the corded version that has a slightly bigger blade but have absolutely no issues with the quality.
          Had it for 2 years now and use it quite a bit without problems.

          I wish the cordless was this price when I bought mine, I would have definitely grabbed it.

    • I find 16.5cm saw is rather small, mostly useful for cutting thin panel. Better go with 18cm

    • It is fine cutting through 200 x 50 sleepers, using 5Ah battery. I have not tried other jobs yet.

      • cool!! thx

      • Conifer, or real wood?

        It is annoying that they never specify power or torque for cordless tools.
        Is that because it is much less than the 1500W of the main-powered version? It would be nice to be able to compare.

        • Pine Sleepers. I found that the power sometimes depends on the battery.

          • @elequent: Yes, if the motor is good, the battery will be limiting.
            Cutting 50mm of pine is still very useful.

            I will try to figure a way to test it, out of curiosity.
            Would hope to get at least 20A from the big battery, so 300-400W??

            • @manic: 6Ah-HP battery can put out 80A to brushless tools, and 60A to non-brushless. The packs would be capable of much more than this, given that depending on the cells used, they could be upto 30A max cont. discharge per cell

    • Had it for a few years and built a lot of stuff around the house. Love it.

    • I have had one for over a year now, and I'm pretty happy with it. I use it mostly for cutting down pieces too big to fit through the table saw. Have also used it on hardwood and it has done better than I thought. I cut down a 3cm thick 2m long Vic ash panel the other day with no problems.

      However what I did do pretty soon after I got it was buy a better blade for it. A thinner blade too so it's not having to remove as much material. Would recommend changing it asap if using it allot.

      Yep, I have one.

      The larger battery pack (I have a 4aH but seriously thinking about buying a bigger one) is required. You get more cutting power with bigger One batteries on all their equipment, but then weight goes up.

      And whilst it struggles with really deep cuts into hard wood (not as you start, but as you get about half way into the wood the blade binds), the no cord is a dream.

      I use this for the majority of my timber cuts. But I still have a corded for heavy duty work.
      For $80 it's a no-brainer though.

      • "You get more cutting power with bigger One batteries on all their equipment, but then weight goes up."

        You get more cutting time, but do you get more power? I'm pretty sure these devices are either working or not working, i.e., the battery doesn't slowly drop off with output power also dropping off.

        I've got a couple of different sized batteries and have never noticed the bigger one making a difference.

        • You get more power. The bigger batteries can actually output more current - it's very noticeable with certain tools, this circular saw being one of them.

        • -1 vote

          nah… you DO get more power. Seriously.

          I've got a big collection of the One gear. Most of the time I use the smaller slim line batteries. But if you know you need extra grunt the bigger batteries definitely give more cutting/drilling power. My One mower definitely cuts better with the bigger battery as well.

          Pretty sure they advertise it as well. Very noticeable.

    • I have one and it's pretty good. I used it to cut a heap of Jarrah floorboards and beams. Had to be a bit patient with the beams though, too fast or hard and it stops. Starts straight back up so was no biggie.

      The time it normally takes me to find an extension cord I'm already finished using this.

    • I have one and it's excellent for most things you would be doing other than actually building a whole house. Blade is deep enough to go through garden sleepers and the like. Definitely recommended.

    • They need to be treated accordingly.
      I've used my makita & bosch for 1000's of cuts. And they're great… for cordless-type convenience cuts. It's not for heavy volume/size use. When someone asks to borrow it for a couple of quick cuts beside me… I just say one thing: Go easy, slower than you're used to. It'll cut pine like butter, but look, listen & feel what's happening. Don't PUSH it. Standard advice for tools, really.

  • No other ryobi on sale by the looks of it

  • There are quite a few things reduced in price.

    2.5ah battery, down to $53.40

    Random orbital sander down to $$65.40

    Brushed jigsaw down to $81.00

    Brushed Recipro down to $77.40

  • What does it mean, skin only?

  • Wow; wonder if I should get this and flog off the crummy (but I'll admit still usable) Ozito.

    Or maybe I'll get the jigsaw; I don't even have one of those. hmmm

  • i have one, they are good for light work only. blade will just stop if you go a bit hard on it.
    It's good, so long as you know it's limits.

    • I have one too and had no problem cutting a bunch of 2.4m sleepers lengthwise, amongst numerous other things I've had no problem with using this saw. You just have to pace yourself, like any circular cutting tool if you go too fast the blade will catch.

  • Brilliant! I was going to buy one tomorrow anyway to cut up some chip board. Great timing!

  • Cheers op bought a circ saw and got a free impact driver as far as I'm concerned!

  • This might sound stupid but I'm complete newbie so please bear me a bit — my question is: does this thing cut 2mm steel? or just works on timber? Thanks for any explanation for entry level :)

    • Won't cut steel. Spins too fast/not the correct blade.

    • 2mm? With a grinder disc it could do aluminium.
      But you want an angle grinder for steel.

    • You can get steel cutting blades for circular saws (I've never tried them) but traditionally they're seen as a wood working tool.

      It's rare Ryobi One+ goes on sale given it's a Bunnings exclusive in Aust so I'm guessing these are all run out items.

      If you haven't got a jigsaw, buy that skin instead. Jigsaw with a metal blade will go through 2mm steel nicely, plus you'll be able to turn and make a corner with a jigsaw.

      Don't use the circular saw.

  • The ryobi router is also on sale but the plastic screw for the carbon brush is shite is you ever remove it for cleaning/removal

  • Cheers OP, bought battery and orbital sander

  • Thinking of replacement some decking and replacing it with Merbau or the composite Ecodeck stuff. Would this have any issue getting through either of those?

    • No problem, built 100 sqm merbau deck few years ago with drill n driver ..still going strong

    • Wouldn't a mitre saw be more convenient for the job? Larger blade too 210mm.
      (Taking the Ozito 18V one for example)

      • I’m not really sure. I have a 5ah Ryobi battery and also a 2ah Ozito X battery. Didn’t realise the Ozito mitre saw was still on sale, would the 5ah on the Ryobi be better suited to a circular saw?

        It’s just mainly for straight cuts on the deck so thought the circular saw would be easier and less hassle to set up and get going.

        • My 2 cents. I have both Mitre and Circular saw. Recently did decking and I agree that a mitre saw is a much nicer cut then circular. For small jobs also I try to use a compound mitre saw as much as possible

      • Didn't know mitre saw can be cordless! Guess the point if you can just take it to where you work easily?
