Ridgid Fuego 6-1/2” Framing Saw Arrives for Review

ridgid_fuego.jpgWe’ve been pretty excited since we heard that the great people at Ridgid were nice enough to send us one of their Fuego 6-1/2” Framing Saws for a full review. We’ve read just about everything that we could find on the tool and still weren’t ready for it when we took it out of the box. It was like when you pick up an empty gallon milk jug thinking it’s full and you almost pitch the thing through the ceiling. What we’re saying is that the Fuego is light. Really light. And after a quick look at a few of the other features, we got a little wobbly and had to put the saw down and go drink a few adult beverages just to feel right again. This one looks like it could be a real winner and we plan on doing a full stress test sometime this week and getting a full review up very soon. We still haven’t decided how far we’re going to go when we test out Ridgid’s boast that the composite shoe can withstand a 1-story drop.
