Questions & Answers

Does this saw move up and down to make a cut in the center of the tile.

Asked by: Bar1
Yes, this saw/motor moves up and down to make punch cuts. The great thing about the 8" saw (R4040S) versus the 7" (R4030) tile saw, is that once the lock screw is loosened the motor, being under spring (upward) tension, automatically swinging motor-blade into position for punch-cutting which user pulls down (against spring tension) when aligned up and ready for doing punch-out cut. This was one of several main reasons I boxed-up and returned the 7" to Home Depot (Love my Home Depot), for when doing punch cuts, the user would have to physically have to lift and hold dead-weighted motor up until tile was aligned and ready to cut. Then when ready to punch-cut, physically hold weight of motor and saw up, turn saw on, and freely ease blade down using it;s own weight to cut material(s). If several cuts and cuts are tedious, this poor design on the 7" can be very frustrating. Whatever you do, after you've lifted the motor for a punch cut, don't accidentally let go of the saw motor handle, the full motor and saw weight will fall hard down onto your material. Very poor design and engineering on Ridgid's part on the 7". I had purchased a Ridgid 7" Tile Saw (R4030), after 2 weeks of was very disappointed due to numerous issues. So, I boxed 7" up and returned it to Home Depot and decided to bite the bullet spending additional $~150.00 to purchase the 8"which right out of the box, compared to the 7" tile saw it was night and day. I have cut tile non-stop on the 8" tile saw and for 3-1/2 weeks, and I love everything about it. There were so many nuances and issues on the Ridgid 7" tile saw, that could have been resolved so easily and relatively cheaply, too! Most of the wishes for the 7" were effectively designed and engineered to include out of the box on the 8". If trying to decide between the two (7" & 8"), by all means spend the extra $ and buy the 8"! You will not regret! It is a great and true cutting tile saw!!!

12 Amp Corded 8 in. Wet Tile Saw with Stand is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 247.

I loved all the nice features and the laser light. It lasted about three month.... All three of them broke after less than three month of use. The first one had the guide brake in half and the clips that hold the saw to the tray popped out after a few weeks. The Second one and the laser light died after two month. The Third one had a bad motor bearing that was grinding so loud right out of the box. So sorry to report this , But you should know that you are paying way too much for this saw! Very poor quality for daily use.

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 4 out of 5 by from Good saw, but know it's limitations I saw another review that will look very much like this one. Overall, this a good tile saw for the money. There are a lot of well thought-out features and it has held up pretty well in the 6 months that I have owned it. The only problem so far has been with the table length when cutting 24" long tiles. There is a lot of tile left hanging out over space during the cut. The saw blade wants to push this overhang down and more than one tile has been snapped because of it. I finally came up with a solution to brace the tile in this situation, but it sure slows me down. Another professional might think twice before getting this saw and if I were doing tile full time, I would also. However, it is a great saw for a DIYer or a professional who is only laying tile now and then. And it it is a nice improvement from the model that Rigid had before. At the end of the day, I still recommend this saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from little machine with big results Bought this saw for two reasons; one was to do tile in my bathroom, and the other was to cut in concrete pavers for patios. The bathroom turned out nice and ALL of the patios I installed in with this saw workred out to be great looking patios. I also used the saw to cut caps to retaining walls. I’ve only had one problem and that the saw started to trip at one of my jobs that could of been my extention cord. The drian cap broke off from the pan and to clean the pan itself the motor needs to be disconnected. But with all of those little issues it still doesnt make the saw a bad buy, it holds up with hard work and it has a lot of features that make the saw stand out.

After trying the 7" Rigid tile saw and returning it (No hassle at HD) and this is a huge improvement! Much less water splash and no batteries required for the laser light. I was also able to cut much straighter. The table on the 7" saw wiggles at both ends of the run. The only down side is the lack of a side table for supporting 24" tile when making 4" or less off the edge. The saw seems to be set up for this but I could not find an optional side table. I have doing non- professional tile installation for 20 years. If you are going to make a move to a larger saw, skip the 7" and buy this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw buy this one Needed a decent wet saw for a few upcoming tile projects. This one had everything I needed. Cuts are straight, saw is powerful, the cutting table is solid and rolls smoothly, and the included blade did better cutting glass than a $70 blade I bought separately! The laser is a nice feature. I did put the water pump is a clean water bucket rather than use the location in the tray cause some dust does get through the included filter but a very minor inconvenience.

It was easily assembled in about 10 minutes and ready to go. My only complaint is that the miter gauge is considerably off. Other than that, I’m very happy to have it for a second saw.
