I have been browsing this board for a while, and decided it was time to contribute something; since I have gained so much from it. I purchased one of the Home Depot brand Ridgid R3210 saws today. I am totally impressed with the power of this saw. I had a pretty good size project to complete today, and it finished it in less than 30 minutes. I cut approximately 40' of 1/2" thick 6061 aluminum sheet into smaller pieces for a machining operation. I even used the blade that was provided in the box, and the saw didn't even grunt. It cut it like a piece of paneling!! The warranty is what really got me interested. 3-years, and if something goes wrong with it, I can return it to the store for an exchange. I figured I would give it a try and see how long it lasts. The saw is pretty heavy, but that is to my advantage for the things I will be cutting with it. The heavier saw should be easier to feed into tougher-to-cut materials, and have less vibration. Don't expect to stand on a 10' ladder and cut rafters with it........way too heavy for that!! If anybody has any questions about this saw, feel welcome to ask.
