So like the other poster said should I buy a mitre saw now? Saw the 12” on clearance regular $348 for $248. Better to jump on the LSA before they get rid of it?

They have the oscillating tool online for $129.00, will they price match it in store for the $59 price, if you buy it online and go into the store for pick up? Great deal!

It looked like buying online from Home Depot without picking-up in-store was like buying from another company (homedepote.ca), which most likely had a higher pricing !

Checkout the one near garden and Taunton in Whitby. Saw it wed. Call them up.

Look for the Gen5x and Octane clearances. I personally think Ridgid is done, and that TTI is concentrating more on Milwaukee M18.

I could be wrong, but I got a bunch of the clearance Octane batteries(and registered) and I'm picking up my remaining wish list of quirky tools like the planer and belt sander.

Otherwise, I think Ridgid cordless peaked with the Octane line. Appears downhill from here, which is unfortunate since I've been a Ridgid user for over 16 years

Milwaukee M18/M12 seems to be generating more excitement for me, but YMMV....

The Ridgid 6.5 inch 18V circular saw (tool only, special buy at $99) seems to be available almost everywhere.

Is this a good deal? Any downside to the smaller diameter of the blade other than not interchangeable with 7.25 in. blades and less depth of cut ? SKU 1001632211

It's the basic brushed version, right?

I think you could have gotten it for this price or less with the battery kit return earlier in the winter.

Yes, not brushless. Getting out the time machine now...

There is one advantage to motors with brushes: They purify the air slightly with the ozone that they emit. Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

I'm not a tradesman..er, I mean trades-person (beg my pardon Justin) and still use a 20 yr old Ridgid drill that uses ni-cad batteries (ni-cads replaced once under wty) that still works fine, so brushless is not a big deal for me. But, if $99 is not a deal, it's a no-go for me.

As long as Ridgid has the life time warranty, I do not think the line is done. Tools are OK for light duty use and homeowners. The Milwaukee is the Commercial Trades brand line and those that want the better tools.

Ridgid still holds a valuable place in the TTI lineup and still brings in a huge market share and bottom line. I don’t think its going anywhere. Yes Milwaukee will have more innovation as TTI owns it outright vs the licensing fees they pay for Ridgid (to Emerson) and Ryobi (to Ryobi Japan).

I had similar thoughts - BUT, Rigid has introduced some pretty nice new stuff for 2021/2022 including the sub-compact line. They have also made the change to Delta for the manufacturing of their new line of table saws, mitre saws, planers, etc. It isn't available in Canada yet but is on their website and available from US Home Depots. The Delta made stuff looks awesome!

The bare tools were mostly Octane I think...

I got the Ryobi table saw on rolling stand at St. Catharines for 179. Hit and miss I guess.
