Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tif Love it!
As a single do-it-yourselfer, imagining moving a cumbersome mitre saw from place to place was daunting. I saw the stand and new that would make my life so much easier! It rocks. Up and down easily. Definitely recommend!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by drferg Beware of store rough handling
Be careful about buying one with dings/damage to the box. I bought one yesterday. While unboxing, noticed that the Styrofoam was pretty shredded inside, but other than a minor dent and a bipe cap, found no damage. I figured it is supposed to be somewhat heavy duty. Other than the damage I note below, seems like it would have been a very nice stand (tired of hauling my miter saw around on an old cabinet.
Upon assembling it (fairly easy) it found that it is badly off center somewhere... Only three points are on the ground at once, the fourth being about an inch above the others. This is a stand that holds a piece of equipment that can potentially cut your finger off, it should not be unstable.
I hope this is from accidental damage and not manufacturing or careless handling from Home Depot workers. Taking it back to trade for the DeWalt to see if that is any better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by profesionalhandyman Really good stand
I bought this today without reading any reviews. I agree the directions are next to 0 but if you are mechanically inclined it should come very easy to you just going by the picture, the rest is common sense. I was able to attach my new 12 in sliding Dewalt saw to it and it holds it tight. The stand is extremely easy to operate very solid construction. I did not like the handle movement so I wrapped the inside with some electrical tape and it reduced the movement a lot. My friend has a Kobalt version and it sucks compared to this bad boy, this is a must have for storage, ease of use and fast literally 10 sec set up this thing is way cool. Have not tried the "gravity" stand but it can't be any smoother than this one, don't go breaking the bank on a high end stand. The only design issue I have with it is the handles are on the wrong side of the wheels when collapsed lol (don't want to scratch the handles getting into the truck) so I am going to try to figure out a wheel system for the handles.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hort63 Awesome stand
I bought the stand to use with my ridgid tile saw had to fabricate the mounting brackets for the saw but looks like you should have came from the factory like this. I have a Dewalt stand that is very similar but does not work as well as this stand as far as set up . Makes moving the saw very easy and I can still use the original stand very easily not that I see myself using it now that I have this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom A must have...
Originally I was not sure if I actually needed the stand but ordered it anyway. The saw I purchased ended up being considerably heavier then expected so the stand was a huge plus. It allows the saw to be moved around with ease. Super solid construction. A must have if you need to move your saw around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bigbass Works Great
Everything was fine- the putting together was easy. It was at the end of the setup that I discovered that the female threaded mount that adjusts the height of one of the extensions was not threaded correctly so I couldn't get one side of the mount to tighten down. I took it back and they kindly exchanged it for a new one which works great.

Went together very easy. Holds saw tight and folds right up to store!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wisco Pretty good stand, Awful directions
Overall the stand is pretty good and was on sale, which resulted in a really good price. Stand itself is really stable and folds easily. There are end caps that are supposed to go on the end of the tubes - don't fit, they just fall right out. Not a huge issue, but you'd expect more.
My biggest beef is with the assembly directions. They are awful!
As a technical illustrator who does this for a living, I would be embarrassed to send that out to the public.
What should have only taken 10 min to put together took almost 40. I would've expected more from ridgid.
This stand could easily be great, but too many small issues that just shouldn't happen
