Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bddunk Great price and well put together, but............
This is a well made product at a great price. My only complaint is the instructions on putting the cart together - they are terrible, the diagram is confusing and it takes 2 people to assemble. It could be easier for sure. Otherwise this is a great product and the warranty can't be beat. The table fence fits very well and seems to be of good quality. Also, the assembly of the blade guards could be clearer. It also folds up into a nice manageable compact space.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by David So far so good.
I just got the saw after it went on sale from $500 to $400 at Home Depot.
The stand assembly took a bit of focusing. The life time Lifetime Service Agreement registration was easy with the number off the receipt. It took a week and a half but I got it.
The saw was easy to fine tune the adjustments. Its easy to move and seems to be of good quality.
I researched other models for two weeks before buying it and so far I'm very happy with the purchase.

I have rental houses and do a few flips on the side. This saw is nice when I have to load up by myself or I need the wife to load up and bring it to me. Its light and has a lot of nice features. Best saw for the money in my opinion. I use to use dewalt and switched to ridged on my 18 volt stuff and have since converted all of my stuff to ridged.

I waited to buy the table saw on sale for $400.00 We have owned a saw just like it and it was a great saw but we finally wore it out. We tried another brand of portable table saw and I was not happy with it from the start. This is the best portable table saw you can buy versus other brands. I am General contractor and we do our own framing and trim work so it gets used fairly often and it can withstand the daily use better than other brands we have tried.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan Does as advertised
Fairly easy setup (stand assembly instructions are really only visual) and fence fairly square out of the box. Needs slight adjustment, but not bad. If your bevel changes when you adjust blade height simply tighten but in back. Clearly states in instructions, but most of us probably aren't reading before we start cutting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phill Best saw ever
This is the best saw ever! Especially if you want to spend hours analyzing why you can't get straight or vertical cuts. The mechanism that allows the blade to raise and lower is strictly four bolts that ride up and down in two slots. The bolts will come loose. When they do the saw will shake like crazy upon start up and the blade will not be parallel to the fence. If you tighten them enough so that they won't come loose the blade won't raise and lower. I used thread lock and precisely tightened the bolts to make sure they weren't too tigh or too loose. We will see how it works out....

I have been using this for a remodel, so far it has been great. The rail measurements seem to be right on. The stand it comes with is very helpful for moving it around. I have only been using it for about 5mths so I may update this if any problems arise.

Quick assembly, and your ready to roll. Saw blade already on and saw is pre squared ready to cut. I used this saw first time out of the box to rip 120 soft of reclaimed barnwood for an accent wall. Cuts were perfect. Highly recommend this saw.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joseph Amazing tool
This is absolutely the best table saw I have ever owned. The fact that it is mobile and extremely easy to store is one of the biggest perks for me. I have limited work space so I frequently pull a lot of my wood working tools out of the shop before use. this table saw is an excellent addition to my collection. In order to collapse the table saw it takes a simple push of a lever from your foot and the same to stand it back up. No hassle! The table saw itself works better than expected and I have already used it multiple times with absolutely no complaints.

Really an awesome table saw, the lack of a soft start is really the only reason I gave 4 stars, other than that its a really good set up for the money

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paddyo Great tool for the price
Getting the stand assembled was just a tiny bit tricky. I probably had a few of the leg bolts too tight as I was going along. This saw ran great right out of the box. I tossed the stock blade for a 40-tooth Diablo for a flooring project, and it buzzed right through hundreds of feet of solid bamboo flooring, no problem.
I've attached a photo of the flooring project. We'd have been dead without this saw.
It also handles dimensional lumber breezily. The best feature of this saw is the fence. It locks dead-on with no fudging whatsoever. It doesn't feel heavy when I need to move it around on the job site. Dust collection is easy and effective with a 16gal shop vac attached. Run your vacuum and saw on separate circuits or you will trip a breaker on start-up.
This is obviously not a substitute for a cast-iron, pulley-driven furniture shop saw, but for the remodeler/construction professional this is a great tool. I did have a weird thing happen to the tip of the fence. The plastic trim on the far end was a little warped, or its screw over-tightened, so it got caught when extracting the fence from it's storage location - a couple of small pieces snapped off. They don't affect use, and the HD rep said I can get a replacement piece.

The Cart is a PAIN to put together but once you study the diagrams and understand haw it works its not bad takes about an hour to assemble 30 minutes of that is studying the diagrams....The wheels are kinda bogus with two washers if you tighten the nut to much the wheels wont spin free.... Mine came kinda marred in the box they way that package it....Not bad for the money tho...We will see how its lasts

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tree Better than expected
I purchased this product as a rough cut saw for cabinet making and I was pleasantly surprise at how well it cuts. Out of the box, without any adjustments, I was able to crosscut a piece of stock square within 1/64". I'm really impressed that a "contractor" grade saw cuts this well. I also didn't expect it to be as quite as it is.
Con(s): As many others have commented, the assembly instructions mostly suck! I eventually gave up on the instructions and put it together just looking at the picture on the box. The two things Ridgid could do to improve the instructions are: 1) provide drawings/photos for each step, instead of one convoluted pictorial for all steps. 2) provide fastener ID drawings. An arrow pointing to a fastener labeled, "Screw" is just not enough.
Also, the miter gauge doesn't fit well into the miter slot. It's very sloppy, it can probably be salvaged with a little effort but it will likely be better to make one out of Delrin or Nylon square stock.
Lastly, the instructions show "set screws" to adjust the throat plate level, however my saw came with flathead screws, a little confusing but I figured it out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nate This saw is garbage
This saw just died on me today after only 13 months of use. I owned the first generation Ridgid table saw prior to purchasing this one, and I got about 5 good years out of that one (fantastic saw), but the newer version is garbage. Very poor construction. My guess is that they lowered the quality to keep the price down, but the extra $100 they charged for the earlier model was worth it. If you are a professional, I would highly recommend getting something else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Extremely happy with this 10" portable Table Saw
Let me start by saying that my last power saw purchase (besides skill saws) was a Sears Radial Arm Saw that I purchased around 1987 or so. I considered purchasing another Sears Radial Arm Saw but wasn't impressed by the recent reviews (although I absolutely loved my old saw). So I started looking into Miter Saws and Table Saws given I planned to put down flooring in 5 rooms of my home. I then convinced myself that I could get by with just a Table Saw for now since I planned to reinstall original baseboards. I did a fair amount of research and wanted something decent for a reasonable price. I then stopped by my local Lowes and Home Depot to see what they offered in my price range ($500 or less). I compared the table saws in both of these stores that fit my budget and the Rigid R4513 was a clear winner. To start with, the Rigid R4513 was portable (I liked that) but what caught my attention when I first compared the different saws was the Miter Gauge. On most of the other table saws in this price category, the Miter Gauge had tiny knobs (almost like something for a child) and were fairly sloppy. The Rigid R4513 had a nice knob with very little play. The R4513 also boast 15 amps and 5,000 RPMs (an improvement over its predecessors). The assembly was a bit tricky but very solid. I had very little time to get up to speed on the saw before using it for my flooring projects but I did immediately swap out the blade with an 80 tooth blade and checked Miter and Rip Fence for trueness - no adjustments were necessary. I've finished cross-cutting and ripping flooring for 2 rooms so far and the saw worked like a champ. I even got lazy/creative and used the table saw to cut the fancy features required around door jams (complicated since I have rounded walls at the outside corners). I'm so pleased with this saw that I can't wait to use it again for the other rooms and for future home projects. Sure, some of the professional craftsmen that cut to precision of mils may take issue with this saw but I've seen more than one review by professional craftsmen that essentially rave about this saw. The one thing to note is that the saw has a lot of startup torque so don't be shocked when you first turn the saw on because it lets you know its cranking up to 5,000 RPMs within a couple seconds. Also, I didn't put on any of the safety shields - I took Wood Shop in High School starting at age 16 and they had no safety features at all. We had to actually employ something called respect and discipline and it has served me well. Having said that, make sure you remove the plastic key from the saw when not in use (especially if you have a curious son like mine). In closing, I love the fact this has a lifetime service agreement and seems to be such a fine saw.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by baguba Great saw, forget the lifetime warranty
This saw was actually a replacement for another saw that I had purchased from Home Depot. Unfortunately I never registered the product for to get the lifetime warranty. Watching the sales I finally bought my replacement and diligently went to the Ridgid website to register. The short version is that it is brain tar to register and I was denied warranty completion and told an extensive, tedious process to follow to complete the process. I don't have a lot of time to devote to this sort of thing so I weighed the risk and I am rolling the dice. Great saw, forget getting the warranty that they talk about.

Excellent product for the price. Seems to be as well made as some of the portable table saws costing almost 2X as much. Outstanding support from sales associates. I appreciate their willingness to help out and their knowledge of their products. Without a doubt the best warranty available for DIY user.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Grumpy missng parts( no list of parts in manual ) took 3 maonths, only know now it runs, have not tried it out
Not as bad as Palram greenhouse missing parts, they never responded and Home Depot had to get them from another source. Reference the table saw, did not have time to assemble unit right after it was received. This time it was direct with Ridgid as warranty. Personnel are nice and helpful, but their internal systems need review. A call for the first missing parts was a 10 day wait. There is no list of parts. Until it was assembled , did not know that the switch had no switch key. Called. 20 days,no part. Call again, missing part was apparently on backorder, I got no word of that as I waited for the mail. Finally a tech had a solution, but because a missing code it set waiting for that number. Another 14 days and the original part shows up. It seems to be well built, though it has a thick plastic case for the base. Seems to be a sturdy product. it is heavy and the rolling stand works well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Golfboy54 Good and bad
Saw has plenty of power. Assembly is fairly easy, but the instructions are a bit criptic, only a schematic is provided. The table top cannot be made to sit level, there is not enough adjustment in the leveling glides. The miter guide's fit is sloppy and induces some strange cuts if not careful. My main problem with this saw is that the accuracy walks with changes in blade height or bevel angle, a killer for making nice furniture. This would be a great saw if it were made solid enough to stay accurate. As a contractors saw for rough cuts, it's great, but as a furniture saw, no way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pix Very nice table saw, perfect for the owner with limited space.
Very nice saw with plenty of power, handled the material without bogging down and is well balanced. The only issue I have is with the assembly instructions, the worst I have ever seen! It took me nearly two hours to assemble, finally I tossed the instructions and used some common sense along with advice from my wife(really!) to finish the job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JonnyPhenomenon Works much, much better than anticipated.
I am very impressed with this saw. it was much bigger than I had anticipated, but the base/carriage is incredibly well designed, making transportation and storage a breeze. Converting the saw from dolly to table base and back again is effortless. All you need to do is press the release with your toe, and push the saw forward. The wheels are sturdy and well placed which makes moving the saw around easy, and all of the attachments have a secure storage location on the body that keeps them out of harms way.
My only complaint with the saw is that the locking mechanism for the blade angle was set too loose and when locked, would still allow the blade angle to deviate. This was easily solved by folding up the saw and tightening a nut on the opposite end of the locking shaft. Basically a normal maintenance type of issue.
Table top design expands to support larger materials.
Sturdy, while still being light weight.
Very clever compact storage design.
blade angle locker needed to be tightened
doesn't cut wood with laser beams. ;)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bobwest Good Saw
Have to agree with many other's the assembly instruction are horrible. EX: Take a hex wrench to adjust the throat plate. I looked for a half hour to a hex nut. All that was on the throat plate was Phillips screws. Guess what that is what they meant, silly me. Many other instructions were horrible. Now for the saw, was putting in 1200 sq. ft. of bamboo flooring and the saw did a great job. I did take the blade off and install a diablo 10 X 84 laminate blade. I have seen many times where people will say the saw is not good and they have a cheap blade which is not going to work regardless of the tool.
