The one piece fence came out of box bent so it's impossible to get an accurate cut. Just spent an additional $45 to buy a two piece fence set up.

From driveway to project start took about 30 minutes. The Fence and Bladé were spot on right out of the box. This was a replacement for another brand of saw that just couldn't make the grade. I have been a DIYer for over 40 years and would recommend this saw to anyone looking for sure cuts, and ease of use.

This saw assembles easily, maybe 10 min to set up. The laser worked fine for me with a few minor adjustments. Its extremely powerful and works like a dream. I think this may be my best purchase. I have almost all Ridgid tools that get used almost daily and the quality is second to none. Highly reccomended!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Nice saw but lazer is junk.
The saw cuts great but the laser is junk. The laser flew off during one of the cuts.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nickname Poor Motor, Wore out in under 30 Days with VERY light use.
I bought this saw as the floor model. It was the last saw, since Ridged was bringing in a new design. The saw I purchased had never been used. I thought it felt under-powered at first and then, in less than 30 days, with light homeowner use only on 1-2 weekends, the motor went out. I returned it and bought a DeWalt.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by zeez This saw has not been made since 2011
Please be aware that this saw is very old and some of the parts including the mitre locking lever have been discontinued. I have called Ridgid and other parts suppliers and everyone says this saw is very old and the part I needed is discontinued.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BB Buy a better saw!
Worked great until I need a replacement part.
Rigid discontinued the throat plates and they are obsolete. So if your throat plate wears out, and it will, throw away the saw. They don't make the parts and said "sorry - there is nothing we can do." Can't find any after market stuff either. Look on their website and you can see what I am talking about. I'll never buy a product again that does not sell common replacement parts. Buy a better brand. Analogy: It's like telling your car dealer telling you they don't make your spark plug anymore and no one else does---- So throw away your car and buy another one from us. Don't buy this Yugo!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillyB 10yrs old! First Rigid product I purchased!
Bought this miter saw back in 2005. I chose it because at the time it came with a saw stand and was $100 cheaper than the Dewalt, and Makita. Let me tell you this has paid for itself time and time again. I have had it now 10 years and use it weekly on crown molding and base boards, I beat the thing up too. It gets thrown in the back of my truck and slides around, cooks in the hot Florida sun, gets rained on, and sits outside on the back porch when not in use. At the end of the day when I am done using it, I hose all the saw dust off with water then leave it sit in the sun to dry. I then squirt a little oil on the pivot points, and locks. Other then looking a little rough and faded now it still operates flawlessly and cuts true! The laser that came with it was never used. My only complaint is the grip design which has since been changed. Mine has a safety lever in an uncomfortable place that has to be depressed before the trigger can be engaged. But as I said on the newer models this has been corrected. If it died tomorrow I feel I got my moneys worth out of it and would buy another!
