The picture is not clear as to if this table saw has an extension on the right side. I am looking for a table saw that has built in extensions. Does this saw have these?

Answer: 
This saw has an extendable slide on the right, but it is not going to be big enough to rip plywood sheets. I use it to rip trim boards up to 16" easily, however.

Answer: 
The right side does extend from 13 inch ripping to 24 inch ripping. There is a lift up lever that is recessed in the top of the table. Once lifted the right had of the table saw extends to match the measurement markings.

Seems really dumb to show a product (nice as it may be) in the table saw category when even the company representative states it's not available!

Answer: 
I agree, I see people saying they had it shipped but I haven't found it to be available in the US in the last 3 months. Canada has it, though its $399.00 which is what I think its actually worth and probably the reason we wont see it available again @ $199.00 I imagine.

Answer: 
i have no idea why it is not in the store, I got mine online. Better that why they delivered right to your door. The saw is not that heavy but the box it comes in is hard to fit in a car.
It is and excellent saw for the money.

Answer: 
I do not understand your question. If they are in stock at your local Home Depot, simply go into the store and purchase one. If you are wondering if it can be shipped to you, then you will have to see if that option is available online.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great features but cannot cut strait This saw may be useful for some basic wood cutting, but definitely not a pro tool like Ridgid pretends..On long cuts blade shifts to one side, resulting in non-strait cut. Also burns hardwood. Maybe it's a poor blade? Also surface paint is scratched easily, leaving paint marks on my beautiful oak pieces. The saw went back after a week and was replaced by basic Dewault, which does everything well and is even cheaper at the moment! December 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dewalt DW745(Yellow) vs. Ridgid R45161(Orange) Dewalt DW745(Yellow) vs. Ridgid R45161(Orange): I have never had nor used a table saw. So, I have no experience to judge what feature is important or what feature is no big deal. What I do have, is the reviews, others have taken the time to submit, thank you. Attached pictures: When comparing models, I copied the same pictures to both model's review, but for pictures only important to individual model, they are uploaded to that model only. My APPLICATION: As a beginner to woodworking I foresee myself to become a lite to average DIY user. I seek a table saw over a 7-1/4in circular saw, to cut 2x4s and small plywood pieces. I am considering a Rockwell Versacut for plywood ripping. But if I did pass on the 7-1/4in circular saw, how would I do say a 45 degrees edge cut to a 4'x4' plywood???? My TOP FEATURES: Easy to setup, move, lift, and store. Less then $250 QUALITY: BOTH saws seem equally very good and would be a good choice. I repeat BOTH saws are a good choice. BOTH have pluses ++ and minuses --. Actually a tough choice between the two. I tried to ask a woodworking friend, but all he could see was the Dewalt name. For that reason, as I compare the two, I will refer to them as Yellow vs Orange. HANDLING: Weight (out of box, without accessories attach): Yellow @ 44 lbs Orange @ 49 lbs The Orange table saw has wheels and a handle to move. But with only 5 lbs difference, the Yellow saw was so much easier to grab, lift and move around the garage. As I try to foresee myself handling the saw from storing, to setup, and back to storage, the Yellow saw is the winner. For someone who needs to transport over long distance, I would recommend the Orange over the Yellow, due to its wheels. For Size and Storage, see attached pictures. Storing the DW745 on its side, will require a small (maybe 3/4inch) block of wood, on the frame, to prevent the sliding fence rails from being damage. MITER GAUGE: WOW, all the reviews are correct, the Yellow saw's miter is JUNK! Its hard to slide in its track. While the Orange has a very good miter. Orange's miter has a small wheel at the tip, which fits into a small notch, in the track, to give a smooth movement. Also the Orange miter has notches, that would be easy to mount a homemade extension. The Orange has great storage for the miter gauge, none for Yellow. WIDTH CUT: I moved the fences to the far edge, some may say an unsafe position. But they seem solid. Yellow @ 24-1/2 inches (Box says 20 inches) Orange @ 26 inches FENCE: Yellow: Like the many reviews say, the rack & pinion mechanism seems solid. I really like the locking & unlocking handle. But it is slow to move. Where as the Orange is fast to expand. The Yellow's fence has very thin black plastic at its edge. I would be concern if dropped, the edge would break. As mentioned by one reviewer, the Orange's fence rides along two small white molded plastic pieces, which over time could wear and induce error, however, for the amount of use, I would do, this would be a very long time. PUSH STICK: I liked how the stick is stored on the Yellow's fence. There is a place, on the right side of the Orange saw, to store a fence, but, you have to bend down, and align the stick, then twist it into place. I know, this is not a big deal, I am just trying to capture all the ++ & --. BLADE HEIGHT/ANGLE ADJUSTMENT WHEEL: I really like how easy the Yellow saw locks and unlocks the wheel. For the Orange saw, the locking mechanism is really stiff, and hard to lock & unlock. Note: The Orange's degrees scale was more accurate then the Yellow. Yellow's page 10, says I can adjust the scale. I used a digital meter gauge attached to the blade, to measure the angle . DADO: Yellow: no mention in the manual. However, on Amazon Questions & Answers for the DW745, users have listed a narrow dado that fits. Orange: yes can do. BLADES: Yes both come with blades. INSTRUCTION MANUAL: Again, maybe no big deal, I think the Yellow's manual is easier to read, and has more details about operation. Maybe to much. All the little adjustments, here and there for this and that, hmmmmm, like page 6&7, adjust the riving knife for either "thru cut" or" non-thru cut". PRICE: as of Dec 20, 2014 at Home Depot Yellow $225 Orange $199 OUTFEED SUPPORT: Nether has it. But Orange's copy saw sold by Sears & OSH (Craftsman 315.218280), does have it. Orange's does have the mounting screw holes for the assembly. Parts can be purchased at ereplacementparts. Outfeed Assembly: 089110113704 @$45.32 Brackets: 089110113095 @$3.76 You need two Screws: 410161010 @$3.88 You need four of M6x26mm Hex Please re-check the part#s just to be sure As for me, I plan to use an Adjustable Metal Legs Sawhorse, like the Dewalt DWST11031 / Stanley 011031S (the same sawhorse) with a 1 inch PVC pipe in the sawhorse "V" groove. I may have to sand the PVC, to make it smooth enough to spin in the "V" groove. Or the weight of the wood passing over it, may cause the PVC to dig in, and tip over the sawhorse, time well tell. I hope this write up and pictures has help someone. My choice the Dewalt DW745, for its ease to handle and store. But again, I have to say, BOTH would be a good choice for a compact table saw. see more pictures at amazon Dewalt DW745 December 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by warranty issues nice looking saw but every time I use it it blows the circuit and when I went to register it ridged put my warranty under review.. so now I have to send them registered mail the original receipt and in 8 weeks when its too late to return it they will let me know if I get a lifetime warranty this is the 4th ridged tool I bought this month and the cheapest make me want to return them all August 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Glad I bought it! Well thought out design for accessory storage. Excellent start/stop switch and placement. Rip fence needed only minor adjustment out of the box and is very easy to use. Miter slots seem a little wide and my feather boards dont tighten up in the slots. Love the built in wheels and pull out handle for easy transport to the job site. Very little assembly out of the box and is very lightweight when loading into the truck. The one quality it lacks is a soft start motor, it really barks when it starts up. I have placed a saw blade dampener along side the blade to help stabilize blade distortion during startup which has helped smooth out some of the wobble. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good table saw I have had this for a few months now and have no complaints yet. I would purchase again. Bought at great price for $200. July 31, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very poor quality Used the saw less than a dozen times over 18 months, then On/off switch stopped working. Very very disappointed, paid good money for a product with very cheap components. Not impressed. July 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Small window of opportunity So for some reason this saw was available from 11/14 to 2/15. Luckily I grabbed one when it was available at HD online. I love this saw. It is SO much easier to transport than the larger Ridgid table saw that I have. The switch burned out a week ago but thanks to the LSA I was able to get it fixed for free. I originally returned it to HD but then I realized that it was no longer available online. So I went back to HD and bought back my broken saw, then took it in to get repaired. I don't know why they would only have this saw available for three months. Hopefully it is a durable tool and will last a long time. If not, at least I have the LSA. Time will tell. I would recommend this saw due to it's portability. February 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Saw I bought this saw to help install a laminate floor in my kitchen. It worked perfectly. Comes with a decent blade too. I like the size of this saw also. I have a very limited work area and it's nice to be able to easily stand this saw on it's end in a corner to get it out of the way. The only drawback to this saw is the flimsy mitre gauge. There is way too much play in it. I still haven't been able to rig it so it won't wobble when I use it. However, the fence on this saw is perfect. It locks at the front and back and when it's locked on there is no play at all. It's very easy to use, always locks on at 90 degrees to the blade. May 15, 2009
