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!

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.

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!

Excellent powerful miter saw...I have had this 12" Compound Miter Saw for four years without problems..
I make rustic style furniture with different grades of wood.
I like that the miter cuts go further than 45 degrees with clean cuts. Since I had this saw I have cut over three hundred hickory tree spalings between 3" to 5" in diam. these tree spalings are very hard wood, cutting with no problems. I also purchased the Ridged stand which is also very good quality.
I give this machine a 10 with all honesty. If you are a woodworker and need a saw that won't give you problems this is the one at a great price also.
