Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anon Would recommend to friends
purchased the saw for a couple of projects I had coming up. Quality is on par with all of the big name brands. I installed crown moulding with the saw and all the controls up front and preset angles made each cut a simple process. It's the only saw I've seen with dual lasers (they may exist, but definitely not at this price point on a quality saw) and they're extremely useful. No guesswork on which side of the blade you're cutting on and no need to line up the blade since you have both edges. It's pretty hefty, but the two handles make it easy to move around. Everything was square out of the box and I don't have a complaint with any of the features in the saw. Would buy again and recommend to friends in the market.

This did not cut square without spending quite some time adjusting it. It soon went out of alignment. Also, the so called lifetime warranty is not legitimate. You have to send away for it, and they will find a reason to turn it down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ricco Excellent saw for the professional
I have used many miter saws professionally. Hitachi, Makita, Dewalt. When I could not order the Hitachi I wanted and it cost $250 more; I bought this instead at my local homedepot. I have since used it for several different projects/applications: I am very happy with the feature set, ergonomics, build quality and weight of this unit. The laser is only useful indoors unfortunately, however it is very accurate. The saw did not require adjustment out of the box ( should be checked though). I went with this 10" for it's light weight, handle location/design, tight bearing and the arbor mounted lasers.

This saw is perfect for the DIYer. It's well made and easy to learn to use. The up front controls are very convenient. Being that this was my first miter saw, I went step-by-step through the manual to acquaint myself with all of the features. I also handled the whole range of miter saws at the HD in Farmingdale. The RIDGID felt more comfortable than the others. This saw is powerful, and with the supplied blade cuts smoothly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HighEndDeckBuilder Decent mitor saw for the money, but....
The mitor has seemingly low power. It bogs pretty easily with composite decking(trex) even with a diablo composite decking blade. Im on my second saw, i was on my site when the saw suddenly lost power. Not full power, partial power. It was extremely strange. I really like the location of the adjustments, how they are all at the front of the blade. Only needing to use one hand with ease really appeals to me. The light isnt terribly bright and i wouldn't use the laser, im a very meticulous and accurate craftsman. Everything needs to be precise. Its a rather light saw, no where near the weight you would expect from a saw this size. The vacuum bag blah blah blah. Who honestly uses these anyway to complain about them. They are an idea that doesnt work on any saw. Get over it. Ill be updating this if this saw(second)fails as well. Looking good so far.

I will tell everyone I know about how great this product is. It is square right out of the box. Adjustments are simple and easy. I have a few concerns. The online warranty process didn't go as well as it should, so I had to submit via mail. Also, a 1/2" onboard wrench would be nice to change the blade, but now I'm just letting you know my wish list. All in all, great product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sfrank70 Super easy to use!!!
I build a lot of different pieces out of reclaimed wood. This saw is perfect for what I need it for and its super easy to use. It does not give me the sticky or shaky feel like some other brands I used over the years. This saw does consistent cuts regardless of what type of wood or how much I cut.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by joshuabehnke I love this saw except.....
This saw is exactly what I needed. Everything was square out of the box. It works great except the dust collection port is in a bad location and isn't very effective. I'm trying to engineer something in my garage to make it better. Overall, this saw is an excellent buy. About $100 cheaper than compare able other brand name models. I've had it for 2 months now and I love it.

I have used this saw many times, it has a smooth cut and easily cuts 2x12 with whatever bevel you need. The laser marks are fat (hard to line up with your mark) and impossible to see in bright daylight but this is not a feature I use. DYI'ers make sure you don't rely on the laser for your lengths. All other features are fantastic, crown lock on the slide works great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lckansas Made Cutting stair treads to exact length and angle easy
So far, I have used the saw to cut oak stair treads and risers to fit the staircase during a remodel job. It works great, and I don't have to switch the tread end for end (which I had to do with a saw I used before).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TboneJenkins Overly complex, innacurate, too cumbersome.
This miter box has too many fine mechanisms that compromise its sturdiness and accuracy and i can only imagine these overly complex features make it more prone to breaking. all of the controls are in front, dual bevel adjustment and angle are in front and are very finnicky. The bevel adjustment mechanism is in the front and does not work properly if the miter box is on the ground without stand, it has to be flipped downwards yet doesnt have space to lock while still laying flat. Overall just a big clunky miter saw... i understand a 12" slider is more suitable for a shop set up then a jobsite saw but this one is just too clunky and awkward. Dont even bother to use the lazers, it will jack your cuts up if you rely on it. Overall i just do not like this miter box.

I shopped long and hard before I purchased this saw. Wish I had purchased sooner as I was forced to use a Dewalt 12in non-sliding saw with the terrible stock blade which left tons of tearout on my hard maple. This saw is a world of difference. I actually use and like the light and laser guide.
Setup was easy and just the fence was slightly skewed from the factory. Got a great deal on the saw and would recommend highly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by josborne321 Great saw
This has been a great saw for me so far. The only problem I have had is the saw losing square a few times. It's not that hard to recalibrate, but the saw was not dropped or anything causing it to go out of square. Otherwise, saw cuts really well, dust collection works pretty average, and bevel stops are accurate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Serge pretty awesome tool
To cut down on reading time I would first like to say it's a good product and you should buy it.
But for those who like to read, here's why...
I wanna say at first I was a bit scared of buying Rigid brand, but went for it anyway. Here's why...
I spend maybe 30 minutes inside the store playing with features of different miter saws. Ease of changing bevel, left to right degrees, button locations, you name it. Eventually it came down to final two, this 10 inch sliding dual compound or the Dewalt dw716, which was 12 inch but had no sliding feature and single bevel. Knowing Dewalt was a reputable brand I almost made my final decision, until I noticed that the handle was broken off on the display saw. This definitely made me question the durability quality. If it isn't able to handle customer abuse, it definitely can't handle daily use. So i have bought the Rigid. It was same price, offered more features and the display didn't fall apart from customers testing it.
Now, the laser made no difference in my decision, but it does help only indoors where you're able to see it. I like seeing an actual brand name general use saw blade on it. So far I have cut baseboard moulding, door frame moulding, and currently working on the parquet floor. This saw saves a lot of time cutting the short end of the parquet and using a table saw for the long end. I almost made the decision of buying regular compound miter saw but after using the slider I'm glad i saved myself the time of running back to exchange the regular for a slider. The slider definitely works for me.
The blade spins pretty smooth and cuts without wobble.
Also, this is a soft start saw so let it reach its full speed before cutting. At one point i went straight at it and the wood jumped.
Another thing is, try to keep the slider area clean because of the grease for smooth slide, it tends to build up dust saw.

Great saw. I have owned this product for almost three years now. All the controls being up front makes for fast use, especially when doing trim work. You get a real bang for your buck with all the features this saw offers.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Great for the rough generic stuff, not for those who seek perfect angles.
So I bought this with high hopes and thrilled with the light and blade it came with, I could care less about the lasers on it. I tried it out, then turned the wood and made a second cut. I compared the piece I cut against the piece of wood I was replacing and noticed a slight angle in my new piece. I did another sample cut and sure enough, the 90 is off with no way to correct it. the part I cut was rather small, and it was off by about 1/32, but I would assume on a much larger cut, the angle off would grow as well. I took it back and tested another one in the store and sure enough. The guys there ended up cutting me a deal on the 12” yellow and I took that instead and I couldn’t be happier right now (granted I didn’t plan on the 12” because more costly blades). If you do a lot of rough work and don’t need that just perfect 90, then this saw would be great, but I build stuff like furniture and need that perfect angle. This would be a great saw for cutting 2X4’s all day in my opinion.

The miter saw in itself is excellent, however trying to get a part for it not so excellent, in fact downright worthless. The model # isn't even on Ridgid's web site.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HEC3 Rigid Sliding Miter Saw As Advertised
This is my first miter saw and I purchased for a 3 bedroom 650SF 12MM 6 inch wide laminate floor install. I was lusting for the Bosch 10 inch but could not justify $600. I had been watching this saw for a couple of months and bought it on sale for $300, having it delivered to my home. My father-in-law, a life-long wood worker, is helping me on the job, and has complemented this saw numerous times, especially for the price. Specifically, accurate out of the box, dual lasers are nice to see the cut, soft start, set up for either hand to operate, common cuts are clearly indicated, lighter than expected and easy for two people to carry up steps, stock blade works well for the job we are doing. So far the saw is doing everything I need it to do. Only complaint is the dust capture is poor, we simply attached my shop vac and performance was much better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BuckeyeRenovator *delay is engineered and a positive feature for avid woodworkers
The delay being spoke about is engineered into many of the newer model miter saws. It is a positive feature for a serious woodworker that needs max precision. Here's why: The motors on the top brand miter saws are very powerful and produce a high amount of torque. If you were able to engage all the power all at once, you would feel and see the saw jerk. This jerk would make it significantly more difficult to make accurate cuts, and at the same time produce more wear and tear on the saw itself. I know this first hand because I also own an older 15 amp Craftsman that does not have this feature. The fine tuning on the Ridgid saw is much easier to manipulate. You can literally cut fractions of a single degree without much problem. The saw is a bit pricey but perhaps not nearly as overpriced as a Dewalt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dennis Ready, Set, Cut
Picked this one up today, the shortest day of the year. With lots of cuts to get in before dark, it was nice to pull this thing out of the box and find that everything is zeroed in and ready ti use. The lasers seemed clise enough, but I don't depend on those for accurate cuts on any of my saws. Besudes being smooth and accurate, I like the soft start, miter/bevels controls at the front, the LED worklight, the work piece clamp, power cord hooks and evrything locks down so it's easily carried. Oh and it came with my favorite brand if blades, the Diablo. I like it.

This thing works well and has soft start and brake. The only issue I've noticed so far is that the lazer cannot be used outside because it is really dim.
