Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stomper Strong and sturdy
I like the strong and heavy structure making the saw very stabble when sawing large pieces but easily moved with the wheel structure, Assembly instructions well designed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthernBuilder This is a nice saw and great value
This was my second RIDGID power tool and the start of many other RIDGID power tool purchases. Like the other RIDGID items that I have bought, this saw has nice features and quality details. Don't waste money on one of those "disposable" saws like they sell at the "freight flyer" dumping ground. If you are serious about doing good work and using good equipment, you can't miss with this table saw. Like some people I would like to have the $6,000 setup that they have on the furniture making programs but it ain't in my budget. But I can do a darn good job with this saw and it is practical enough for me to put it in the bed of the truck if I need to use it on-site. It's easy to move, easy to set-up and a pleasure to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrunge340 One of the best table saws for the price
The R4512 has great features, like the cast iron table top, sturdy aluminum rip fence, and easily-adjusted bevel and blade height. Another plus feature is the quiet, smooth operation. I've seen it pass the nickel test a number of times, though I have never tried that. I really like the fact that there is an opening to the right of the right extension wing. I used that to build in a router table extension wing which works great. All-in-all this is an awesome table saw for the price. I love the sturdy mobile base and the options for dust collection. It's a great table saw with some pretty good safety features as well. I'm so glad I bought this and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dimensions Ridgid Table Saw
I have owned the table saw ( with iron table)for five or six years and it works as good today as the day I purchased it. The weight makes it a stable, solid work surface for cutting big sheets or long boards. The saw has performed so well that I have begun to replace all my tools with Ridgid Tools. All those tools perform excellent also. I am constantly recommending Ridgid to my friends and once they use them for a while, they are saying that Ridgid is the best kept secret in the tool industry, and I agree.
If you are looking for dependable tools and great customer service, for my money, I'd go Ridgid..

This could be an industry standard setting machine. However, there's a few short-comings that keep it out of the professional category.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ebert58 Quality with exceptional price
I received this for a Christmas present from wife and daughter in 2013, wow was I surprised.
Everything I ever wanted from a table saw, perfect size, with mobility & the quality out preforms anything in its price range.
Full assembly was completed in about ninety minutes. Everything lined up and was square right out the box practically.
If you could see or hear these run they would practically sale themselves, no vibration & no high pitched screeching from the motor. This table saw is in a class of its own, nothing even comes close to value or quality in this price range.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drawbey Love this saw!
Great saw at a great price. I was in the market for a new saw but with 2 kids in college my money was very tight. I shopped for about a year looking for the best combination of power, convenience, price and strong user reviews. The RIGID won hands down. The casters are easy to lift and roll making this a great saw for a small workshop. The cast iron top and accurate fence have been very easy to work with. I keep the top waxed and free from rust and once I dialed in the fence it has held true without an issue. The 4" dust collection port makes keeping the shop clean very easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brianjcollins Fantastic Product, tiny quirks
I have to say, this is my favorite tool in my entire shop. When you turn the saw on, it's very smooth, quiet, and means business. I cut hard maple as a regular occasion and it slices through without a problem. My small caveats are the fence and the clamp for the riving knife. The fence seems to stick a bit and allows you to clamp it down with it a little off. This wasn't always like this and there might be a simple fix to recalibrate it. I've noticed, if I simply push forward on the lock before I lock it down, it brings the fence in alignment. The second very minor issue is the clamp lock for the riving knife. I no longer can seem to lock it into place without using a super human strength on it. This might be solved by backing the nut off a bit. This is a wonderful saw, don't hesitate to buy it.
