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.

Along with your Rotorazer Saw, you’ll also receive:

3 quick change blades:

  • Diamond – Use for hard surfaces such as tile, stone, grout, and other masonry.
  • Tungsten Carbide – Best for wood surfaces, laminated flooring, PVC, and other similar materials.
  • Steel – Best for metal and steel surfaces, and even carpet.

In addition to:

  • Dust Extraction System – Attach to any vacuum for easy, dust-free cleanup.
  • Case – A durable construction-grade case that can protect your Rotorazer Saw when you’re not using it.
  • Bonus – Professional 310-piece drill bit set (see more about this in the Bottom Line section).

During our research we also found several references to a Platinum version of the Rotorazer Saw, although there was no indication of this on the product’s website.

The Rotorazer Saw comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, less shipping and handling charges. In order to begin the process, you’ll need to contact customer service at 800-220-7975.

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.

    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

    Not "as seen on YB"

    I ordered this product online and even upgraded for my husband's birthday, which was a few months away. What they don't tell you is that an upgrade is not just "better blades and accessories", it is a whole different item. A clunky, heavy drill with cheap accessories. It cannot do anything that they do on the commercial.

    I called customer service and was told that someone would contact me. No one ever called me back. When I did talk to someone again, she was sarcastic and demeaning. She said because I ordered online they could not pull up my order. $200 is a lot of money to not get what you ordered.

    I will be contacting the BBB about this company. What a scam. Beware! They have products similar to this at other retailers for under $20, called a variable speed oscillating multifunction power tool. Do your homework and save yourself some money.

    Do not buy this product. If you do order, make sure you use it right away. I guarantee the cheap accessories will damage or break. Send it back within 30 days or you will really be out of luck.

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

      Felix

      I definitely will not buy this junk. Thanks for telling the truth about this rotorazer. You just saved me 200 bucks.

    • Feb 24, 2016

      Donna

      Thanks Lanetta for the review. I was on my way to the website to order when I saw your review. I would love to see what happens if you do report them to the Better Business Bureau as I have lost faith in this establishment. It seems to me they are far more concerned with the companies that pay their annual dues to belong and be able to carry the "BBB" insignia. Let us know what happens. Thanks again.

    Sent even though I didn't confirm an order

    • High Point, NC,
    • Dec 19, 2015

    I saw this and I experienced the same as everyone else here. I called Customer service and she said there was nothing she could do. I canceled my CC transaction with them.

    I was thinking to purchase it online, but then changed my mind after I provided my credit card information. I did not confirm the order, but instead got out of the browser. Next thing I know my credit card was charged. This is a total scam as they can't charge me for something I didn't commit to order. Stay away from them.

    Giant Scam

    I was looking forward to my premium Rotorazer and I received it in the mail. The premium one is nothing but a glorified smaller version of a circular saw. I contacted the state's attorney general office and they filed a complaint against them and Rotorazer never answered. Complaint number is 849247. All I wanted was the one I ordered, so beware of this.

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