Hi, I just bought a Ryobi rec- saw... When I use it sometimes the
blade comes out of the unit and gets stock in the wood. I then have to
remove the blade and re- insert into the machine..; Has anyone had
problems like this and why is this happening? THANKS!
I had this problem with a Bosch cordless recep saw, that's part of the
kit. There was a faulty (missing) piece that retained the blade, so it
fell out. Came out of the box like that.
I took it to a local authorized dealer and he fixed in a few minutes.
There was no cost. They did record the serial number for the saw as it
was a warranty fix.
I had a Ryobi reciprocating saw before and I didn't realize it had an
aluminum chuck? (not sure if that's what it's called) and I over tightened
the screw and stripped out the chuck which deemed the thing useless. I guess
it didn't help that I was using it to cut through 2 layers of shingles and
half inch plywood when I did that..
I had two Ryobi recip saws and non had this problem. My problem with it is
that its under powered and the gear box will strip a gear eventually. I have
cut 1" thick steel plates with the Ryobi, a little slow going but without
I've replaced the two Ryobies with a Milwaukee Super Sawall and a Porter
Cable Tiger Saw. The difference compare to the Ryobi is like night and day
but cost more $$. My blade came out once with the Tiger Saw but it did
