About Rotorazer Saw

Rotorazer Saw is a high-powered professional-grade hand saw that is claimed to be so precise that you can cut any type of material in any way possible, and on any surface you choose. On top of this, the Rotorazer Saw is claimed to help save you money by being useful not only for home construction projects, but for arts and crafts as well. Summer has officially arrived and home improvement projects are everywhere you look, so you’re probably interested in learning more about the Rotorazer Saw.

Sure, this all sounds great, but can you expect the same level of performance that you saw in the Rotorazer Saw’s commercial, and is it really as versatile and precise as it claims? We cut away the hype to get at the facts, and here’s what we found.

Rotorazer Saw Features & Details

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, you know that it often takes several different saws in order to achieve the cut you’re after. In response to this, the Rotorazer Saw claims to be the most versatile hand saw on the market by allowing you to make straight, curved, and even plunge cuts. In fact, the Rotorazer claims to take the place of a jigsaw, circular saw, hand saw, band saw, tile saw, hacksaw, and miter saw, and to combine them into one lightweight, portable, and durable handheld saw.

Each Rotorazer Saw claims to come equipped with a 400-watt motor that allows you to cut at more than 3,400 RPMs, and that its construction-grade chassis will fit inside your hand, regardless of size. On top of this, its safety switch means that it won’t engage until you want it to, and its Adjustable Cutting Depth Lever allows you to choose the perfect depth (shallow, medium, or deep).

In order to begin using your Rotorazer Saw, the company claims you’ll just need to follow these 5 steps:

  1. Attach the appropriate blade based on your cutting surface.
  2. Press the Protective Safety Switch downward.
  3. Slide and hold the Thumb Control Power Switch forward.
  4. Adjust the Blade Guard to your desired cutting height.
  5. Plug the Rotorazer Saw in and begin cutting.

Rotorazer Saw Pricing & Refund Policy

The Rotorazer Saw is only available directly through the manufacturer, and is priced at 3 payments of $49.95, plus $19.95 shipping and handling, bringing your total to $169.80.

What’s the Bottom Line About the Rotorazer Saw?

With all of this in mind, what’s the bottom line: Is the Rotorazer Saw a good investment, or is it just junk? When making your decision, keep the following in mind.

Most importantly, remember that the Rotorazer Saw is manufactured by Ideal Living based out of Van Nuys, CA, who also makes Prosvent, WalkFit Platinum, Paint Zoom, and many other “As Seen on TV” products. This often means that it may not perform as well as advertised, and/or as well as its mainstream competition, and you may experience some difficulty processing a return. As such, although Rotorazer is a very new product and has very few online customer reviews at the moment, one of the most common complaints related to other Ideal Living products is very poor customer service, so you’ll likely experience the same with this product.

Also, keep in mind that the bonus professional 310-piece drill bit set actually only includes just over 20 drill bits and tips, while the remaining 290-some odd pieces are just an assortment of wall hangers. Also, remember that these can only be used with a drill – not the Rotorazer Saw.

Pros

  • Claims to allow you to cut any material in any way you choose, and on any surface.
  • Claims to be lightweight and portable, while replacing numerous other types of saws.
  • 30-day return policy.

Cons

  • The Rotorazer Saw is an “As Seen on TV” product, which often are lower-quality than their mainstream competition.
  • Other Ideal Living products have a reputation for poor customer service.
  • New product, so almost no online customer reviews available.

    Very disappointed

    There is not a "zero" on the ratings, or else that is what I would give.

    I ordered my Rotorazer on 1/27/2017. For the first time using it today, 2/11/2017, I cut six inches of my metal overhang on my roof, which took me 18 minutes to cut. It now will not cut anymore. It's like the blade has completely dulled. At $24.95 for the blades, who can afford to replace them every six inches? I sure can't.

    The Customer Service just told me that it was supposed to cut 1/2 inch metal when I called to return it. Then they told me that I have to pay $40.00 to send it back. What a big rip-off!

    Beware of ordering one, as it is deceptive advertising as far as I am concerned. I will pay against my will to send this piece of junk back to Rotorazer. Just a note from a deceived consumer.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Rotorazer professional junk

    • New York,
    • Feb 13, 2017

    I purchased this tool for specialized woodworking and some tile work for my business. I have had the opportunity to use it twice and really feel it was a total waste of money.

    The motor is clearly not very powerful, and I found it jammed too easily going thru any material. But the major issues are the ease of use and the ability to accurately use this tool. Due to the large skid plate on the bottom and very small alignment ports in it, you cannot accurately align the blade to the material you want to cut. Making it worse, you must simultaneously manipulate two switches with one hand (one to unlock the plate and the other to turn on power) while pushing down on the saw (against a stiff spring) to cut your material. It is very difficult to do, especially when trying to find and follow a line.

    In both cases, I could not maintain adequate control to make an accurate cut. I might add that I have been using tools for over 30 years, and have the ability to very accurately cut very straight lines with conventional power tools. For this tool to be workable, they need to change the skid plate with one giving a full view of the blade during use, and to simplify the two switch configuration.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Bad customer service policy

    I would have given "0" stars if it was an option.

    I don't know how the product works, but the customer service is horrible. The reps were nice enough, but their return policy is programmed, so there are no exceptions. Come on people! Stuff happens.

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband. I received the saw on November 23rd, and as Christmas is on December 25th, I was two days over the 30-day return window. There is no documentation in the box declaring this return policy, and now, they won't let me return it, even though on December 5th they changed the policy to 365 days. We're talking two weeks from the time I ordered to the time they extended the return policies. I understand the need for these, but the rigid constraints don't make for good customer service.

    They did give me a 25% discount, but since I paid $245 for the thing with shipping, that's not much of a consolation. Won't be buying from or recommending this company. Ever.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Rotorazer

    I ordered this for my husband, he used it 2 times briefly, it worked great. It sat unused for 7 months, he went to use it to cut a plastic pipe and it would not turn on. So to me, it is a total waste of good money.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Don't do it, don't buy it!

    • Spartanburg, SC,
    • Nov 8, 2016

    This is a piece of junk, it does not cut through thin sheet rock without getting a blade to complete the job. So you can forget commercial grade as mine broke while cutting carpet, burned right up and spit and sparked. I had to send it back and pay for shipping both ways otherwise, they would not give a refund.

    They didn't even tell me they were holding it for me to pay the return shipping. When I called 2 months later to find out the status of my return, they said that they are waiting for me to pay the return shipping, like I should have known that and they were doing me a favor shipping me another one.

    Their customer service is horrible, that is if you are diligent enough to continue until you reach them. The unit is very heavy. I do have small hands but I do a lot of work and this tool is hard to use.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Stopped working during first job

    • Tennessee,
    • Oct 13, 2016

    This product is not as impressive as it seems on TV. We only cut 4-5 pieces of 1" x 1/8" aluminum angles during our first use. The blade holding screw and plate were loose and the motor burned. Useless.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Save your money

    I purchased the item after seeing TV ads. It was a gift for a friend. After a few uses, it worked well. But, next attempt to use it wouldn't work. No power at all, no warning at all. Of course, this all happened after a few months after the 30-day return warranty.

    Disappointed

    • Graham, WA,
    • Aug 14, 2016

    This saw is seriously misrepresented. The TV infomercial makes it looks easy to use and very precise. I am very adept at working with power tools and was very excited to get my hands on the Roto Razer. It is not easy to handle, the depth gauge is very weak and I feel it is unsafe for someone that is unfamiliar with circular saws because it can catch on the material being cut and kick back. I would not recommend this tool. I was also under the impression the drill kit and extra blades were included in the "Special" offer, I ended up being charged for them. I am sending it all back for a full refund!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Saw does do what they claim

    This tool is like anything else in life, to get good with it, you have to USE the tool. I've been building, repairing and remodeling most of my life and I'm 55 yrs old. Let's face it, most people don't have any business using power tools, let alone trying to do quality work with power tools. It's a skilled trade that you LEARN through trial and error like anything else in life. I read a review by another so called contractor who must have been a complete idiot because this is NOT a hard tool to use and does do everything and more than the makers claim and also saves money and time. However, it is a detail saw and not a heavy duty construction saw.

    I do use this tool a lot, I've had it over a year now and it does a great job for me in remodeling jobs and detail work. The only change I would make and did make was to put a regular off and on switch on it so I don't have to keep the switch pushed forward while trying to use it.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Horrible

    • NY,
    • Mar 31, 2016

    Less than 1 star. 0 for B.S. I spoke to a customer rep to order this product, Rotorazer, and they made it sound awesome. They told me it's the best and that my husband will be happy. Well long story short, price went from $191 with tax to $201.15 after "other" charges. I received it in the mail, we opened it and called them right away and asked them to give us a refund. It's junk, it's garbage. I paid $201 and they are returning us $163 because they don't give back shipping or taxes. And I had to pay to send it back as well. So I lost $60 dollars. Never ever buy anything from this company. Not satisfied. The product is garbage. False advertising.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
