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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nebagamon JUNK!!
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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dudeski Motor good,everything else not
The instruction manual is confusing.The tubing is a good idea, but the valves, fittings and clamps are poor in quality and cannot handle the water pressure. Replacement parts are equally as poor. Will probably have to rig a water system to make it work when i need it to work. The laser is not bright. The motor and the stand are its only redeeming feature

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ninja1 The product has a few problems.
1. Instruction manual is not well provided especially tiny illustrations did conduct me confusion for tube circuits. Ironically, the best illustration for this was on the outer carton box.
2. A part called "valve assembly" is very poor quality. Both original part and a spare one were easily broken by water pressure - a kind of blown out. I asked Ridid to send me another assembly but they still ignore my request.
3. Laser beam does not help at all in the day light - cannot be seen at all. Does Rigid asks customers work only in the dark?
Other than above, the machine is the best in the market I believe.

Out of the box, the instructions are vague to say the least for someone who is not mechanically inclined. I was able to put it together in about 30 minutes myself. The platform is solid offering great stability. The slide table is very smooth. The saw itself is excellent offering a laser guide which is adjustable, but the small LED light that is supposed to illuminate the table doesn't provide enough light in my opinion. The saw provides a good range of angle that can be cut from vertical to 45 degrees. Overall it's a great product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by salvage101 This saw is very cheaply made.
I had this saw for about a year now and had to replace two different valves. It just seems like its falling apart and for the money i spent i could have got something else with better quality. The laser is not accurate either. The saw cuts great other than that. The motor is powerful and it will rip through pavers if you need it to. Its just the little things that you get nickel and dimed for that should not fail in such a short period of time. Trying to find parts is like pulling teeth too so if and when you do find the parts, i suggest you stock up on more than one because these parts just fail. This way when your in the middle of a job and your saw suddenly starts leaking paste water all over the place you can fix it in a jiffy! I had a qep saw before this one that lasted 8 years before it got dropped and bent. I don't see this saw lasting not even a quarter that as its falling apart in less than a year.
