This is the most precise saw I have in my collection. I also purchased an 80 tooth blade, this baby will cut Oak like butter with a superb finish. Take the time to calibrate all measuring devices and position the blade properly following the instructions.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tj worst saw ever
I had purchased the RS4510 a while back. It was such a good saw I thought I would get another one to use on other jobs. They changed the saw model to the RS4510. I was so disappointed in the quality of this saw. I don't know what their point is in making the saw so cheap. For example, it has no soft start, the guide is cheap. a lot of the parts that were metal on the first one are now plastic, and although I have tightened it the table will not stay where you put it. I have many rigid tools and this is the only one I wish I had left in the store. It is junk.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JCrist30 Great for DIYer---Some Improvements Needed
In terms of my woodworking experience and ability, I consider myself to be a DIYer and "hobbyist". I actually do build furniture for various clients, and the time came where I needed to purchase my first table saw. My issue is that I have absolutely no storage space other than on my covered patio, so getting something along the lines of a portable contractor-type saw was a must.
I've owned this saw for about 5 months now, and I have several pros and cons I've observed.
Some mentioned the saw assembly was totally incomprehensible. Now, maybe me reading those reviews put me in a state of mind of knowing I would need to take my time and think through the instructions, but I had absolutely no issue assembling the saw. I would say it took me 45 minutes at the absolute most.
The portable stand is super easy to setup and break down when needing to move the saw around. I think it could be a bit more stable, but overall, the benefit of the portability outweighs that minor issue.
Overall, the power and quality of the cuts with the saw are as to be expected. I've exchanged the blades several times depending on the type of project (Diablo 60-tooth for some of my finer projects, and the stock contractor blade for some of my more rustic pieces), and this process is really simple with the on-board blade-changing tools.
While the fence functions really well, I have found it to be not perfectly straight, with a slight bow away from the blade in the very middle. I often just clamp a nice, straight piece of oak or other hardwood to the face of the fence to use instead of the fence itself; it just depends on the project. This may be a fluke for this fence, but then again, it may not be.
Upon trying to build a cross-cut jig, I found that the ends of the T-Slots are slightly more narrow than the middle of the T-Slots, which caused my jig to bind up significantly when starting and finishing my cuts. I've also found that the T-Slots are not exactly (or the expected 99.9%) square to the blade, and thus the fence, so I have to take special precautions when setting the (non-straight) fence up for my cut so that my cuts are as parallel to the blade as possible.
Again, I wasn't expecting a perfect saw due to the fact I was buying a contractor saw in the first place, but I feel as though the two main issues I have shouldn't have anything to do with that. I think Ridgid could improve upon those two specific features/issues, and I would be 100% happy. I do know one thing is for certain: I would still take having this table saw over not having a table saw again any day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Naildriver44 Very Happy with this product
The leg assembly instructions could have been presented in a clearer manner but the performance of this saw for the price is unreal. the saw is light and yet when pushing 3/4" plywood across the saw bed the saw never wanted to tip over. The wheels are large enough to allow going up or down stairs an easy task. The expandable rail to the right for larger cuts using the fence is easy and fast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Good tool at a good price
The Ridgid table saw stand took some time to assemble, because the instructions were not clear. It would have been nice if torque settings were provided for the pivot point bolts on the stand, instead of having to guess at tightness so that it folds easily while still being a solid platform. The blade alignment and other saw adjustments were straight-forward. I have two other Ridgid tools, both of which have served me well. Overall, the Ridgid portable table saw seems to be a good tool for the money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Reid Decent Saw for the Price with some Major Drawbacks
Overall a good saw with a few issues that caused me to give it three stars.
Assembly wasn't too bad overall. The instructions were terrible and not intuitive so it just took a bit to get set up. Once assembled the rolling stand is easy to use, sturdy, and makes it very easy to store.
After initial set up of the stand I went to square the blade up. Unfortunately even at the furthest travel of the saw it would not sit at a perfect 90 degrees. I had to loosen the bracket holding the saw and make some more major adjustments just to get the blade to 90. Once the blade was square I went to look at the gauge on the saw that tells you your bevel angle and it wasn't even reading close to 0 degrees. The little plastic piece that you can adjust to make the gauge read properly is only adjustable in one direction unfortunately, so on my saw to get a square 90 degree cut the gauge indicator sits at about -3 degrees. I am actually still debating taking the saw back for this reason. Also the lock that holds the saw at a stable angle is plastic and hokey. If you plan on making a lot of bevel cuts this saw is not for you.
Rigid touts their lifetime service agreement but if you look at the instructions for signing up for it you can tell they are making it intentionally difficult to sign up for. They said they couldn't verify my receipt so now apparently I have to mail them a copy via certified mail. Not that that is the hardest thing in the world, it's just frustrating.
Just bite the bullet and spend a little more to get the Dewalt or Bosch with their rolling stand.

This is a great table saw. I needed a table saw that was movable, it is very easy to fold and roll from shed to job site and is very solid not wobbly like my old table saw. What really sold me on this saw was the warranty.

Directions to put the stand together could have been a little clearer. It was easier to look at the picture on the box than the actual directions. Other than that the saw itself works great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BurCalGuy Well Designed Work Shop Table Saw
I needed a portable saw that would store and or move easily around in my garage/shop. A relative purchase one a year earlier and I was impressed with the design qualities that Ridgid has built into this saw. Storage for the fence, material pusher and blade guard are handy and well thought out which makes storage really easy.
I like the dust port that hooks up to my vacuum system and the extendable table top is a really functional feature. When folded up it is very easy to move around the garage and stores neatly up against a wall because it has a relatively narrow profile compared to a non folding stand and saw. The design of the folding stand is simple to use and very well balanced when transitioning from up right to folded or back again.
I sold my very dependable 25 year old Mikita table saw which didn't have any of these features simply because I was getting to old to lug it around to get it into position to use.
Modern design of this Ridgid saw makes it a special and welcome addition to my garage/work shop.
I thank my wife for this great Christmas gift (she was really listening to me about what I wanted).
I would highly recommend it to my wood working friends.

Getting the legs assembled was a bit strange. The written instructions were a bit confusing while looking at the pictures, but I got it done. Also, the blade guard and kickback component were a bit difficult to get into place, but I eventually figured that out too. I do a lot of handyman work and this saw fits the bill for me. It's light, portable, easy to set up and break down. For the money, it's a nice saw. Thank you Ridgid!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BD Needs Better QA & Some Tweaks...
Wrong size wheel washer in the kit, saw angle adjust feels spongy, left side miter slot had burrs within the channel so the miter gauge would not even slide through it, right side miter slot feels sloppy, table is not flat from side to side, arrived way out of adjustment, etc.,etc., fence seems solid and robust. All in all, very disappointed in the overall quality and all of the problems mentioned affect the accuracy of the tool.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KM Pure Chinese Junk
Although I am really good at assembling things and doing all handyman tasks around the house, I have to say that the assembly of this table saw is absolutely the worst thing I ever endured. The instructions are absolutely terrible and the pictures (which I had to use) were too small and difficult to see.
Next, I attempted to ensure that the saw blade was tightened properly. NOT. It was tightened so tight that the inside wrench provided bend. I tried the bend it back straight several times using a vice but it kept bending. And yes, I was attempting to turn the nut in the proper direction.
I finally gave up, returned it to Home Depot and purchased a Sears Craftsman power tool.
Maybe I got a bad saw. Based on my experience, I would NEVER purchase another non-Bosch tool from Home Depot. Thankfully HD allowed me to return it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Worth the purchase
Pros: Easy to use, controls in great position. Fence slides and adjusts tensions very well & easily. Stays locked and doesn't budge during operation, Fence locks with handle out of the way (some other brands lock with the handle in a horizontal position, which will poke your hip when walking around). Storage place for attachments. Stock blade is more than acceptable. Motor has never bogged down for me (mostly cutting red oak, pine, and cedar). Cons: Storage attachments could be more secure... When constantly packing up the saw and tilting it, the push stick often falls out. I'm bound to lose it one of these days. Metal orange guard around blade (on table top) is slightly lower than the table top itself. Transport handle when pushing it like a shopping cart only has one bolt, which no matter how tight causes the handle to 'pivot' slightly. Works fine, but every time I grab the saw to roll it, it makes me less confident in how secure the overall stand is. Needs two bolts to prevent budging. Stand doesn't move during use though. I definitely recommend this, especially if you can get it for Black Friday prices like HDepot had in 2015.

Had been looking for a table saw for quite some time but did not want to pay an arm and a leg for one. Found this one for 100 buck off so i jumped on it. Took a little time to assemble but was not difficult. It has a nice large table top that expands to a large enough size that I can actually work with a full sheet of plywood if I needed to. It is nice and heavy and does not move when in use. The fence is easy to adjust and holds solid. So many I have looked at have a wobble in the fence or fasten on both sides. The blade height and angle adjustment are in one knob and is very easily adjusted. Folds up easily and has a slot to store fence and the angle guide so there is nothing to protrude or be lost when it is stored away. Seems to be powerful enough for what I need it for. All in all I am very happy.

Good overall saw. Very mobile with the folding stand which is easy to use...once its assembled.
Instructions for the stand are cluttered and confusing. Might take a couple tries to get it together.
Otherwise its a great little table saw.
My other main gripe would be that there is no easy way to hang this thing from a wall.
The handle on the left side of the saw works but then the guide-rail falls out of the bottom because there is no latch on it which I find odd on a portable saw.

Putting the stand together took a little time because the instructions weren't very clear. Once assembled, it ran great. The soft start feature would have made it a 5 star rating. And it would have been nice if Rigid would have gotten my information right with my first e-mail and saved me a stamp asking me to send them a copy of my receipt. How hard is it to follow up a purchase if they have the transaction number and I did use my Home Depot credit card. Really?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mtnbuilder Good product - as advertised
The assembly took a bit of problem-solving.
The table height is low and not adjustable.
The sticker placed on the table top is unable to be removed without scraping the cutting table - not a great idea.
The box arrived looking like it went through a major earthquake - all corners bashed in, torn in two places and the lid was opened and resealed with straps with one tire one the outside.

This saw seems perfect for general ripping of siding, plywood, etc, where perfectly straight lines aren't required, but for fine finish work, even with a premium blade, wobbles and won't leave straight lines. I'm returning mine this week. I bought this because of the $300 sale price in December, but I got what I paid for...

I have only used the saw a handful of times, however every time I did it was great. Cuts through wood like a hot knife through butter. Not the easiest assembly ever but I was able to do it in about 45 minutes. It blows all the wood dust off on the backside of it. It is really easy to wheel around and to put it away for storage.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cachehog Excellent saw, but...
Once I got the stand assembled (in spite of the poor instructions), and everything set up, I fired it up. Impressive performance compared to my previous worksite saw (a Porter-Cable).
The miter gauge and rip fence were accurate right out of the box. At that point, I would have given the saw a 5 star review. But then I began to notice negatives.
1. The blade wrench used to hold the motor shaft broke while I tried to remove the blade. Luckily I had another thin wrench that fit.
2. The lock for the sliding table extension wasn't tight at all. Adjusted, and it's fine now.
3. Unable to find a Ridgid dado insert specifically for this model.
All in all, I'm very pleased with the saw, and the minor irritations are far outweighed by the positive points.
I recommend it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeremy Great Value
I really like this saw. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and don't really have any complaints. After initial fine tuning it's very accurate. The fence works great and has slots to add a sacrificial fence. The blade tilt and heigth mechanism also works great. Power is good. I ripped 2.25" Fir like butter. The miter guage is just ok. While it is aluminum and has stops at 45 and 90 degrees, it's a little loose and there's no adjustments on the bar. Good for rough work but You'll probably want an Incra or Osborne for fine work. All pieces get stored on the saw for transport. It even has a little shelf for your tape measure. It's doesn't feel quite as sturdy or heavy duty as the Bosch or Dewalt portable saws but it' $150 or so cheaper making it an excellent value.
One important note: It only takes a 6" dado blade. I don't think that's a negative because I prefer that in a small saw but if you already have an 8" then you'll have that extra expense.

I love the way the saw folds for ease of storage. I like the way the accessories store on the saw and are easy to reach. Performs well and adjusts to different angles easily. I don't care for the sticker on the front that indicates the angle cuts. It was coming off and not sure it is accurate. I will soon find out. The other draw back are the instructions. Please make the book larger and give a step by step detail how to assemble the frame.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ridgerunner Really big, really good table saw
The table saw is big and came almost perfectly aligned (I made minor adjustments using a square and a screwdriver). The blade guard and anti-kickback teeth are easily stowed on the saw resulting in a compact profile for storage or carrying when the stand is collapsed. As for the stand, it is a good, easy to use stand but the assembly instructions were written by someone whose attention was on something else. I almost guarantee you will undo and redo parts of the assembly. You will get it done, however.
As for operation, it is uncomplicated, accurate and quite satisfying.
