Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by degeus This product has no good features
Had this saw for several years now and have been aggravated for the last two years. The saw looks all nice and shiny in the store, but as soon as you get a little saw dust on it it makes it hard to turn the knobs. The blade guard hinge froze and and consequently broke. Now the blade guard is patched together with duct tape. The water goes all over the saw except on the blade. The laser is not adjustable after several uses because of tile dust. went looking for parts, that was a problem. About $ 100.00 in parts to replace the guard assembly. All in all, not happy with this.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hydeslinger underpowered terrible user's manual
if you want to spend the afternoon frustrated assembling this tool with less than poorly written directions, then this is your saw.
Assembly should have taken less than 1 hour ended up taking 3.
Overall the product is pretty good but still miffed about assemble.
I am cutting concrete paver stones. The saw seems underpowered for this task. I can't commit on tile cutting.
included blade is for tile, I purchased a mason blade for my task.

Ton of overspray, will not stay in adjustment. Adjustment maxed out still won't cut straight. Over priced, overrated garbage!!! Worst saw I have ever owned or even used.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by donhopkins2000 This is a great wet saw
This is a great saw but I wish it had a smaller 90 deg. cut slot in bed. Small glass tile is hard to hold on to.

The expectation of a tile saw at a minimum is to be some what accurate - this saw out of the box deviated 1/8th - 1/4 of an inch over 12" inches. Attempts to adjust the laser or Table rails were unsuccessful. I returned the saw after 48h of pure frustration; wondering why Home Depot would put their name behind such a poor product. Dole out the extra $200 and go with the DeWalt. which Home Dept rents out, but does not SELL. I'm sure if they tried renting out the Ridgid model there would be alot more DYI / Handymen taking the time to write these reviews.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by multitradeservices The assembly instructions are horrible. As with anything produced in China, at times if the instructions are written/translated there, they can be confusing. As for the saw, I find it good for smaller jobs like powder rooms/small kitchens. My next tile saw will be a Dewalt, which should handle all jobs-big or small

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lillwaynee78 I was skeptical
I read a lot of reviews on this tile saw and some of them were not too good. I almost didn’t buy the saw because of the reviews. Tile is what I do for a living so I need a good saw. I am disappointed with all the bad reviews I read because they were all wrong. The saw is not under powered you just have to set the blade down low enough. I have used the saw on 18” tiles and it cut them straight. Ridgid should give you a better blade because the blade they give you will chip the tile a little so buy a good blade when you buy the saw. The saw is very portable with the wheels right on the stand. If you are looking for a good tile saw this is the one to buy. Slowly all of my tools are changing to Ridgid. Lifetime service agreement how can you beat that? Keep up the good work Ridgid!!!!

I tried 2 tile saws before this one. The R4010 is hands down the best design. The integral stand is handy for support and transport. I agree with other reviewers that the tubing is thin walled, but it is adequate and light weight. I was concerned about the reviews indicating rust and sprayed WD40 in each tube as I assembled. Eighteen months later and no rust on the stand. The freshwater delivery system is great. Never used the pump, so can't rate that. However, I would agree wholeheartedly with other reviewers that the water delivery system is just cheap - all plastic. The hose-coupling/shutoff-valve broke the second time I used the saw. I picked this saw over the DeWalt DW24000 because of price. Add $40.00 to the price of the Ridgid for a ball valve, hose coupling, and brackets beefy enough to support a garden hose, and you're a bit closer to the cost of the DeWalt. The laser is handy. My first job was a diagonal pattern. The laser is great for quickly cutting corner to corner on tile that will be covered by baseboard. If it has to be precise, mark and cut the mark. I wouldn't buy this saw because of the laser, but it's a nice feature. I also would not buy it because of "Lifetime" parts. It took almost a year just to get the saw registered. It also takes months to get parts, and I've needed too many of them. My local repair center just dropped Ridgid because of slow service and poor quality parts. I also agree the instructions are small and bad. A contractor should not even think about this saw. A busy DIY guy like me will be frustrated. It's a great design and a lot to like, but poor quality. Ridgid almost has a great saw and easily could, but until they improve the quality, I would buy the DeWalt!
