Can I cut 24" porcelain w/ this saw?

I need a saw that can handle 24" porcelain tile. Will this saw be able to handle it? I don't need to do many cuts, but I think extra blades will be needed. What spare blades should I choose?

Yes. I have a quarter inch, 24" piece of scrap porcelain tile to prove it. Just completed two bathrooms of the 24"X6" porcelain planks. Used fence also. Only needed the one blade it came with for 126 square feet.

Answer: 
I'd say yes it could, but you won't be able to use the rip guide on cuts bigger than 9 inches. The table itself is only about 20 inches wide.

Hi:
Yes, you can cut porcelain tiles size larger than 24". But you need two people to work together. One people hold one side of tile, the other hold the other side.

Answer: 
It can, but the working surface is not terribly large so stability of larger tile is a concern. Building a table extension jig would be useful for multiple cuts.

I have this saw and it cuts thick granite 12x12 tile like nothing with no strain on the motor. 24 inch tile is big but I think if you built an extention base to support the tile overhang you would be fine, just take ur time.

Answer: 
No a 24” porcelain tile would be too large for the R4020 7” tile saw. It has a 12” maximum diagonal type cut capacity, and an 18” maximum rip type cut capacity.

Blade too close to table surface?

This question is from 7 in. Job Site Wet Tile Saw
Asked by
Pittsburgh, PA
Read all my Q&A
January 31, 2015
I just got this saw, and when assembling it, the blade appears to rub against the left (fixed) side of the table surface. It seems like there's a spacer or something missing, or the saw is horribly misaligned with the table surface, but I don't see any way to adjust it.

I have the inner washer, blade, outer washer, and then finally the nut on the arbor. From the manual, that looks like the only things that belong on there.

Any thoughts on what might be wrong would be appreciated, because I really need to get to work on this bathroom floor.

Answer: 
The blade that came with my saw was warped, which causes a section/sector of the blade to interfere with the left side of the table. (The warped blade also produces excessive vibration when operating.) Manually rotate, with the saw unplugged, the blade a full 360 degrees to determine if you have the same issue.

I have the same issue. Just unboxed it on 11/7/2015. Blade rubs against table just like yours. Unfortunate. Ridgid should disclose this as a known defect. I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE BUY THIS SAW UNTIL RIDGID POSTS SOME SORT OF PUBLIC ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND RESOLUTION.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 149 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent home wet tile saw Well built, sturdy table, great for home use. I used it to edge a patio and repair several damaged tiles. A two day rental would have cost the same as the purchase and now I own my own. Saw blade is a little thin but for my work it was fine. If you keep the guard low the water spray is minimal. The table is rugged and provides a sturdy base for cutting. If you have a job that requires at least two days of cutting or repair work I would recommend this saw over rental. Motor never bogged down. August 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by For the price, it does the job Easy to assemble. I am putting down 12" x24" tile and its cutting and ripping them well. Blade maintains speed while cutting. Overall a decent blade. For its price point, I have no complaints. September 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good luck finding one without arbor runout. Purchased the saw and put the blade on the arbor and found that there was a huge amount of arbor runout. The amount of blade wobble was so bad that I didn't even try the saw out so I instead exchanged it for a different one. Well, this saw had the exact same issue. If I wanted a saw with this amount of blade wobble, I would have bought it from my local Harbor Freight for less than half the price. I'm sure there are some Ridgid saws that don't have this amount of runout but I can't keep exchanging them and testing them out to find a good one. August 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool! This tool save me a lot of time when redoing my tiles August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for beginners This saw performed flawlessly. As you would expect from a Rigid tool. I expect this to last me a long time. August 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worked great until... the saw worked great for several jobs. however, on the last job the plug would not stay in the drain hole. i compensated by literally putting a cork in it August 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wanted to like it This was the most expensive bench top saw they sold. I bought it thinking I was getting a great saw. Everything about it was top notch. However, when I turned it on to cut, water shot all over me. I couldn't see the line I drew on the tile to make an accurate cut. And the saw quickly used all the water in the reservoir. The saws I have used before all used a pump to wet the blade. Now I know why. I will never buy another saw that uses a simple water bath to wet the blade July 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THIS SAW WORKS FINE THIS IS MY SECOND SAW AS I SOLD MY FIRST ONE WHEN I FINISHED MY FIRST HOUSE. NOW I AM ON MY SECOND HOUSE AND I JUST FINISHED PUTTING 12 X 12 PORCELAIN TILE IN THE ENTRANCE TO HALLWAY. CAME OUT NICE. ONE REVIEW SAID THAT THE FENCE MOVED WHILE CUTTING TILE. THAT IS BECAUSE THE WHEN YOU INSTALL THE HANDLE TO THE FENCE YOU HAVE TO PUT THE WASHER ON THE KNOB SIDE NOT THE BOLT SIDE WHERE IT SLIDES INTO THE FENCE. I ATTATCHED A PIC TO SHOW THE CORRECT INSTALL ON THAT. EVERY SAW CHIPS TILE FROM TIME TO TIME AND YOU ALWAYS PUT THE CHIP SIDE UP AGAINST THE WALL WHERE THE BASEBOARD COVERS IT, SO I REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. TILE ON October 14, 2015
