Shown here is an AEG 18V 2-battery brushless 10″ sliding miter saw. It looks like a Ridgid cordless miter saw, but it’s NOT a Ridgid product, at least not yet (to my knowledge).
The AEG saw was announced late last year, but there has not been any word about a Ridgid version, at least from what I’ve seen. If you’ve seen otherwise, please let me know!
It was mentioned in the comments section of Ben’s post about the new Milwaukee cordless heat gun.
The AEG saw features a 2-battery interface, but the interesting part is that it doesn’t require the use of 2 battery packs.
Using 2 battery packs contribute to greater power and longer runtime, but it can be operated with just a single battery pack. Festool has done something similar, with a 2-battery cordless saw that can run in “tortoise mode” with 1 battery, or “hare mode”
