Big. Strong. Powerful. Those are three words that get tossed around frequently when discussions shift to the Ryobi ZRTS1345L. When you take a good look at one you will completely understand why. This model has a powerful 14-amp 5,000 RPM heavy-duty motor that contains so much juice that it makes the toughest cutting job seem like a walk in the park. The unit comes complete with a carbide-tipped blade that not only zips through metal, concrete and any other chunk of mass you intend to reduce in size, it can do a mighty fine job on the finicky ‘pretty’ cutting applications. The blade also can be changed with a single wrench which adds to the ease of operation. The 10-inch blade well, gives you a lot of cutting options. To help you on your projects there is a dual-view bevel scale that is viewable from either side preventing delays and slowdowns just to get the cut lined up right.
The Ryobi ZRTS1345L miters to 45-degrees on the left or right and has stops positioned at common cut locations such as 0-degrees, 15-degrees, 22.5-degrees, 30-degrees and 45-degrees. There’s also the extremely handy and superior safety feature in the form of an electric brake. This provides fast response to when the blade needs to stop to prevent an injury of some kind. For comfort and stability in handling, this unit also has a D-handle built into the design. Shipping weight is listed at 26.4-pounds but there is a whole lot of serious cutting power packed into this package.
The saw comes complete with a 24T carbide-tipped blade, a blade wrench, dust bag, work clamp to secure material before and during cuts, a pair of triple-A batteries and an owner’s manual. Although this specific model is reconditioned, it has been retooled by the manufacturer back to their factory specifications. There may be slight signs of wear and tear on this model as a result.
Online reviews rave at the power this saw contains. The powerful motor and extreme cutting capacity rates high in the view of many reviewers. Even the slight wear visible on some of these refurbished models is no biggie to consumers who own this product. The easy to change blade, easy to see guide and easy to use features place the Royobi ZRTS1345L high on the list of “must-have” items in the tool shed. If you are in need of a quality saw with power and a super-size cutting capability, this is your tool. Read more…
