8 in. Tile Saw with Stand is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 108.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy I have used for two major bathroom remodels for both walls and floors. First off with 13 inch tile and less for the noney you cant beat it. 24'inch tiles well it will do it but a bit of a reach for this. Take your time but it is tricky. now 13" or less this is the bomb. Perfect for cutting angles, plunge cuts for boxes and plumbing relives from purchasing abrasive hole saws. I screwed 2 tiles up over 1000 square feet and it was my fault. Bearings get loud quick but work fine. If you know to let the tool work it works well at a slow consistent rate at perpendicular cuts as well as angles. LET THE TOOL WORK. Plunge cuts and a tile nipper will save you tiles and aggravation. Dare I say maybe fun. I have been doing tile since scoring it and break.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Worth It I am a low volume, high quality tile installer. This saw worked fine for the first job it was used on, cutting 2'x2' $18/ft marble. I have owned the saw 3 months, almost to the day and cannot get the saw the cut square anymore. Cutting cheap porcelain tile, the back of the blade creates chips in the stone. I have numerous attempts the "Square" the slider to the blade. Alas, it works for a few cuts and then is magically out of square again. Also, somehow the pan had begun to leak, i fear for use of the transport wheels and the location of the drain plug(maybe damaged while rolling?) It currently hemorrhages water after only 2 major jobs. I am returning tomorrow, and was considering the special order 10" saw as rigid makes decent tools in general, but it gets poor reviews. I am at a loss, in general I am happy with rigid, and was this saw for the first month( i was thrilled with its performance), but it does not age well, at least not with professional use. I would recommend for a homeowner, but doubt one would purchase a saw this expensive, ultimately I think a pencil drive is a homeowners best bet. For the professional, look elsewhere, this saw is not accurate for most customers standards, not with heavy use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT worth the money! I'm a semi-pro installer DIY'er; I've done thousands of square feet of tile on floors, walls, outdoor pavers etc... for over 15 years. I was using a 7" Husky for years and lived with the "cheaper" products flaws. I bought this saw in the hopes that some of those nuisance issues wouldn't be here. Wrong! The main defect in this saw is that the rail system is not long enough - that simple. Here is why: as you cut tile the last 1/4-1/2" of your cut is crucial that you keep a steady slow speed through the blade, almost letting the blade pull the tile through. This is so you don't get a broke angle on the end of the tile. With this saw, as you move into this crucial zone, the forward wheels fall off the rail and the table moves suddenly up 1/16"-1/8" thus jerking the tile in the last 1/4" of cut. You are left with a splinter angle cut on 75% of your cuts no matter how careful you are. I typically only lay porcelain tile so this might not be as bad on ceramic tile - but for the money? This is supposed to be a serious tile saw, and i'm sorry it doesn't cut the mustard. I can do just as well with my old $200 Husky. I'm sad to say that to move into a great saw you aren't spending <$500. Be prepared to spend between $800 and $1200 to get an actual work horse saw for contractors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saw- would buy again Bought at store and was easy to assemble. Easy to use. Cuts great. I have used a small table saw in the past for a few tile jobs (sm bath and bedroom- aprox 180' sq total). This saw is so much easier and makes much better cuts (and straight :) ). If you have the $ this is a great investment. I noticed, at several different HD stores, that the 7" version had some play in the "table" that you slide the tiles to the blade. The 8" version has no play. I cut 250' sq and saw works like a champion; still cuts great and accurately. The laser level was a bit off but is easy enough to adjust. I would buy this again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Bundle -Everything you need to get cutting right out of the box Not as versatile as a 10- or 12-inch saw, but one-third to one-half the price and big enough for most homeowner projects. Several projects pay for the saw in foregone rental cost, time considerations (work at your own pace without worrying about increased rental hours), and no concerns with the unknown blade condition, balance and alignment of some rental saw. The laser was a nice 'extra' I didn't realize was included. If you intend to file for the lifetime warranty (why wouldn't you?) save your original box or remove the UPC data printed on it before discarding - my notice from Ridgid to include it in a supplemental warranty application submission came AFTER I had recycled the box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good tile saw, except... This tile saw is rated to be able to rip 24" long tile. While the distance from the backstop of the sliding table to the front edge of the blade is indeed more than 24", the table itself is only 13.5", leaving at least ten inches of tile hanging out in space when you make a rip cut. This is fine for ripping a square tile since there is alot of material to support that overhang. Unfortunately, ripping a very expensive 24" bullnose which is barely 4" wide to begin with seems no small risk of snapping the tile in half. I thought I'd use a piece of Hardibacker underneath the tile for support, but the backstop is only about 3/8" high so that the back edge of the bullnose piece will not be against the backstop. There should have been a removable piece of the backstop about five inches wide so that one could begin the cut with the skinny tile hanging out the back but against the angle stop until the cut is half made, then reinstall (with two Allen screws) the backstop and complete the cut that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Saw Brought this saw after much research. I was planning out a Kitchen and Foyer with Ceramic and Porcelain tiles. I needed to cut many diagonals and several edge angles and looked at many 7 inch saws. I concluded that this saw at 8 inches was the best buy for the money and I am happy with the purchase. It was a bit more than I planned to spend but did the job and represents a good value.The included blade is adequate so you don't have to buy a more expensive one right away. The stand works great and stores easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific tile wet saw I am a non-professional but frequent tile installer... I do house renovation projects, and do the tile work for each, so I've done several thousand square feet by now. I got really tired of dealing with the score/snap tile cutters and the little 5" toy wet saw, and figured it was time to upgrade for this next reno. Boy, am I glad I did. In short, I'd estimate that on the first two floors I've done since buying this saw, it probably saved me 20% of the net time I spend on the project. I do a lot of diagonal patterns, and between the smooth-sliding and very accurate tray, and the laser line, it's super easy to get a tile lined up and cut with no fuss. I simply measure from a corner and put a small mark, line it up with the laser, and cut away. 10 seconds later it's done. That's SO much faster than the fuss required with a tile scorer or a non-sliding-tray saw. I haven't wasted a single tile yet, and had very little chipping. Some critical observations. Yes, it's a bit loud, but I wear ear protection 100% of the time when working, so it's not a bother to me. I happen to think the NON-belt design will be more reliable long-term, so that seems like a good tradeoff to me. The splash tray on the back doesn't quite catch all the spray. Some water hits about 3" up from the tray. If I raised the blade a bit it probably wouldn't do that. I just stick a bit of plywood to catch the overspray. I guess I could also prop the tray up a bit higher. As to those who complain about the water pump, I wonder if they meticulously clean it after each use. I remove it, take it to a sink, and run it to flush out all the gunk. No problems yet. But if you don't clean it and that stuff dries inside the pump, I'm sure it would seize up. The tray is very accurate for me, as is the laser line. I'm not totally happy with the adjustable "fence"; it's a bit hard to tighten each time, and you must move it out of the path of the blade fairly often. But it does work, and produces really accurate 45 deg angles for me. The multi-stage sediment catching system seems to work really well. The pump seems to have very little buildup in it after each use, but there is a little bit anyway. It's a little awkward to transport the saw assembly, as it's fairly wide and not really balanced for carrying easily. But it quickly breaks down into easily-moved parts. The only thing I really don't like is the water drain cap. I have to fight it a bit to get it to stop leaking. But if that's the worst thing about this saw, I think I've got a great product. Well done, Ridgid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blade size problem I must say I really like this saw. Till I had to start changing saw blades. I needed to get an 8in. continuous diamond blade for porcelain and good luck. I couldn't find an 8in at the HD, and the 7 in blade I did get was awful and kept chipping my tile. I ended up buying another 7in blade from Lowes same day and it was a little better but still could not find the 8in. blade they recommend. Only way to get that 8in. blade is by ordering it online which if you need it that day is a huge hassle. I would of been a lot happier just getting the 7in tile saw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from tile looks great, but poor engineering I had one and I loved the design . motor powerful and table open up very conveniently the problem is on the arm that hold the engine, is not strong enough so when you cut a tile the slight movment of the arm doesn't allow a strait cut. I sold mine

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok so many crevices and grooves makes it really hard to clean and maintain a good appearance, a very noisy motor and a click or jump in the cart as you slide the tile thru the blade gives you imperfect cuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality saw - no regrets buying it Needed a wet saw for kitchen tile project and searched through the reviews and decided I didn't want to get the cheaper saws because of the reviews. Sliding table on other saws reviewed as sloppy loose which proved right by the display models at our store. This saw has a good sliding table that has little side to side play in it. That the saw motor and blade is above the table is nice to CAREFULLY raise a tile up and nibble a cut straight through without cutting past a intersecting line so you have clean corners. Saw was used for 6x6x1/4" tile. Cut with ease and even when I rushed the cut a time or two to test how much power the saw had it never bogged down. For tile I'd guess there more than enough and saw also cuts pavers so would guess the extra power would be nice for them. Splash shield that attaches to the back is a big plus. I used my saw outside on concrete porch, but didn't see any water or slurry that missed the plastic extension and would have made a mess inside. Saw is more expensive that many others but also offers more benefits. While I bought this for this small job specifically, I plan to do others down the road and wanted better than just sometime that would cut tile. Stand included was welcome and saw has wheels to roll it rather than have to carry it. Maybe works OK on firm hard surfaces, but don't think it would roll very well with the small wheels in gravel or across yard. It isn't too heavy to carry for one person. Cuts where straight and true. Marks on miter gauge not exactly accurate as new tile laid against it and squared against fence was slightly past 0 degree mark cast into metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect saw After lots of research I ultimately bought this saw. Set up took ten minutes and was self explanatory, even comes equipped with the tools necessary to assemble. Laser is dead on, the blade is nice and leaves clean cuts, and had no problem with water pump. Only downfall to me was the stand and saw tray doesn't lock together making it so you can't wheel it around like other saws, you have to carry each piece but the pro is you can set up on floor or on a table if you want. Really impressed with the quality, power and versatility to take on 95% of projects. For the DIYers you won't be disappointed. Not to many saws are able to do 2 3/4 pavers down to 1/4 inch back splashes and everything in between. Also the saw has a guard behind blade to catch all water spray so you can setup inside a finished house and not make a mess. Good job ridgid new customer for life as long as you keep this quality up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8" tile saw I used a 6" table tile saw for years. I finely broke down and bought this 8" tile saw from Home depot. I spend about a week kicking myself for not getting one sooner. You will not regret purchasing/using this saw. If you have any questions I would be glad to help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR SMALL TO 18" Tiles The tray is very sloppy with the bigger tiles (1/8" off from cut to cut length wise). A few more rollers on the tray would solve this issue. Tray is bumpy when cutting 20" tiles. Ruined a few tiles cutting. The stand is kind of wobbly with the weight of larger tiles. When you figure out the personality of the saw it gets better! Reason for a 4 star...Laser is dead on center! Tray and fence are dead on center also! Everything I've read about this saw is accurate...pump is still working as well as the laser.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NICE SAW; LOUSY REGISTRATION PROCESS! The saw does a nominally good job of cutting 24" tile, just relieve the cantilever to avoid nicks. [Rant ON] The product registration process is terrible; the software drops the register code and you repeat, repeat, and repeat. Customer service representative is clueless, and the store staff cannot intervene. Superintendents spend more time trying to register the tool on a prevailing wage project than the tool costs. [Rant OFF] GOOD LUCK

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid saw, good for all 12" cuts and most 18" cuts I purchased this saw to do a bathroom remodel. I was cutting 12 x 12 tile and 18 x18 tile. I cut out sections of tile for bath fixtures and electric boxes. I also cut angles on the 12" tiles. It made all these cuts well. If I would have had to cut angles for the 18" tiles the saw is limited and might not have been able to make all the cuts. I had to realign the sliding tray which was very easy to do with a T square. I also had to reset up the laser and this was more difficult. I would suggest a better align system than loosening a screw and trying to align the laser while holding the laser light and tightening one screw. As the screw was tightened the laser light would move and I would have to readjust. A couple of screws to move the laser assembly would allow for exact setting. I made several hundred cuts and all were straight with no chipping on the tile. Cutting out holes for light switches was straight forward and the results were clean and precise. I would recommend this saw for 12" and 18" tiles. It would work for 24" tiles if all you were doing was straight long cuts. If you were having to cut angles it might not work for all cuts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I just purchased today and was disappointed. I bought to use on a small job so my opinion is based on a limited amount of time. First the stand does not lock into water tray which only sits on top of legs which could easily fall. The motor is extremely loud before and during cuts so wear ample ear protection. The filter material around the pump is a good idea which could prolong pump life. Also, wheels and handle on water tray are a good idea. The tile tray did not slide easy and also wobbled which affected ease of cutting. The blade included chipped the porcelain tile I cut. Also, the tile tray is too small to cut larger tiles because there is no way to extend tray. I cut 6 x 24 tiles and 12 inches hung over tray which could easily break on delicate cuts The lifetime warranty was a nice feature but not enough to make up for the design flaws..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tile saw This was definitely an improvement over the little table tile saw I used to have. I bought it because I needed to rip 24" tiles. It cuts through tiles with almost no chipping. Make sure you keep an eye on the water. If it isn't coating the blade and creating a misty spray, it's not working right. I removed the tube at the pump and blasted two lungs worth of air through it and it was working fine again. Probably didn't change the water out enough. The sliding table works well and ruler marks are actually pretty accurate. One complaint is that the table is tricky to get on correctly. I wish the spring loaded pin would pull back more to give more room to maneuver. I also wish you could lock the table while it's installed for easy transport. It does have very good slide action. I was a little concerned when I saw the legs don't lock into the table (it just rests on top). Gravity held in place just fine though. I'd recommend this saw to someone with a big tile job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT Recommend JUNK The saw vibrates badly!! Motor pulses. When cutting a 12" porcelain tile the tile would break when I was cutting the last inch of the tile 7 out of 10 times.the only good thing about this product is you can bring it back for a full refund with in 90 days
