Thanks. Seems like a pretty good deal. THey had them with the "get a free battery" months ago but the battery trick seems to have reached its limit where I live. I picked one up to go with the big 12" sliding saw that is a pig to lug around.

What is the "max" in terms of lumber size for this unit (without having to flip). 2x4, 2x6, 2x8?

Just curious as to the use case for a casual homeowner user.

7 1/4 in my view is always nice to have. Most combo kits only come with a 6 1/2. 7 1/4 blades typically have more options, more availability and usually cheaper than 6 1/2 blades.

Craftsman slider came with a 4 Ah battery and was 250$ over boxing week. I posted it here but it got buried - don't think anyone saw the thread.
Just making an assumption here, but value-wise the Craftsman is likely the better deal for someone who isn't already into the Ridgid or Craftsman ecosystem, but likely many more people are already on Ridgid than Craftsman and for them, the LSA would be more attractive than the battery and charger since they already have those.

Craftsman slider came with a 4 Ah battery and was 250$ over boxing week. I posted it here but it got buried - don't think anyone saw the thread.
I was considering the Craftsman saw when it was $250 last week as I had found the 9ah battery for under $50 at Rona Mississauga with the intent of getting this saw ( i had no other Craftsman tools at the time). Luckily enough the Lowes I was in had a returned one for $109 (no returns/refunds). I took the change and so far am very happy with it. It's only 21lbs so the lightest in its class. The only downfall is the brushed motor when the others like Kobalt & the Ridgid are brushless versions.

Rona/Lowes seem to have great deals on the Craftsman line, similar to HD and Ryobi items. I was able to snag a brushless circ saw, CMCS551BLW for $43 yesterday.

I think of these as "complementary tools". 7" battery for the quick stuff here and there when you don't want to lug the big 10" or 12" sliding one.

This one seems decent for the same price? https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ryobi- ... ue#reviews I'm actually considering opting for that one instead...

Try to add to cart and see if free shipping is available. If so, you are good to go.

I just checked and it works for me.
