Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 151 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value Replaced 12" Dewalt saw with the Ridgid after the Dewalt burnt out. I picked up the saw and stand for substantially less than the Dewalt counterpart, I wasn't too sure at the time but 6 months later I couldn't be happier with my decision to move to Ridgid. I use it it nearly everyday at the job site and it is hardly showing signs of wear. It is solid, accurate, versatile, and comes with the best warranty out there. The only things I could say negatively is that the dust collection is less effective than I would have preferred even with a vac, and it seems really loud. I will be replacing other power tools when the time comes with Ridgid. November 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw with great value The saw operates at a superior level more than expected for the price paid. The saw cuts accurately and has a very good amount of power. The saw cuts square on all cuts and is very stable because of the weight of the saw. I chose not to purchase and use the portable stand as I like to use it on my bench. The only draw back to the saw is the dust collection system as it does not collect anything at all. I use a vacuum system to collect all the cuttings and this does a good job for me. I highly recommed this saw and I believe this will be the last miter saw I have to buy because of the excellent warranty. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 12" Sliding Compound Miter Saw has held up I've been using this miter saw for over 5 years now without a hitch. I love the the big deck this saw has as it makes it great when doing crown molding Out of the box I found the saw was set up and ready to go, I have had saws in the past that I've had to make adjustments to the fence as they have not be set up square to the blade, so I always check my saws. Like others have said the dust bag could use some improvement but again I've had this issue with other saws I've owned. This saw is heavier than other saws I've had but I just leave it on the stand. Overall a great saw that I would recommend. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Most-used power tool I have I bought this saw ten years ago when a trim carpenter for a home-building firm. I have since retired but still use it in my own wood shop and continue to find new ways to use it for all sorts of projects. Service was excellent the one time it was needed. I especially appreciate the life-time warrantee service which saved me a pile of money when a scrap piece of wood jammed into and bent the pivot point. Of all my power tools, I would miss this saw the most if I lost it. Well worth the money, I would do it again in a heart-beat. Love you, RIDGID! November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw Great saw. Especially since it has a lifetime warranty! The rigid stand makes it even better and portable. December 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic saw! My wife bought this for me as an early christmas present. I was blown away at how easy everything on this saw was to control, from the slide to the angle of cut. Definitely recommend this saw to anyone from the weekend home renovator, to the tradesmen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Most Comprehensive Desgin in Mitre Saw I bought this particular tools for more than 10 years of time. I bought this for my retail shop decoration work. It gave me a accurate cutting and handy adjustment no matter cross cut of angle cut, its work excellent. For power it given no doubt of it. Today, I use it for new workshop at home. It does most of the cutting work which save me a lot of time to complete my work. Verdict: YOu use it you will love it. Good Power Tools. Thanks for your watching November 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing durability and function Have owned this saw since 2009, the 12" blade provides easy cutting of up to 6x6 posts, the portable table is amazing for long boards and setting up, as well as portability, makes great work of crown moulding and beautiful straight cuts. Only wish back was slightly taller so a jig isn't required to do crown and is on the heavy side. Overall amazing saw with many more projects to come November 24, 2014
