About This Product

The compact design of the R4540 table saw is perfect for contractors or home owners needing a quality table saw in a small package. 15 Amp power and a precise telescoping rail and fence system make it easy to keep the fence square for any cut. 25 in. right rip capacity makes cutting sheet stock a snap. The scissor style stand and tubular chassis with extra blade resist tipping even cutting large stock.

  • Single control blade height wheel with speed knob
  • No-fall bevel control holds angle while adjusting making small adjustments much easier
  • Aluminum miter gauge with detents at popular angles
  • Large throat plate insert and arbor lock for easy 1-wrench blade changes
  • Flip down fence for safely cutting thin stock or small cuts when fence is close to blade
  • Includes: table saw, scissor stand, miter gauge, tab lock fence, tool free blade guard system, blade wrench, 28 tooth carbide blade

Q:I need to cut a 3 1/2" deep x 11 1/2" long slot vertically at the end of a short joist (~36" long) to install a Simpson StrongTie concealed joint connector. I will have to stand the joist on end and push through with no guard. Possible?

    Bad Fence
    Instead of having both sides of the fence pinch in on the top, this saw has 2 metal rods that press against aluminum rails to keep the fence in place. After several months of light use, the fence could not be tightened due to these cheap aluminum rails denting.

      Awesome power
      I've been wanting one of these forever. My power hand tools just don't cut deep enough, I'm tired of having to flip and make two cuts. Having a bench is a must for deep square cuts. So glad I picked the Ridgid table saw. It came in a few more pieces than I expected, and putting two washers in between a tight space was the worst part of building the stand (see picture). However the rest of it was easy to follow instructions and put it together. It's a great addition to the DIY tools workshop. A sliding table top and accessory storage on the sides makes it easy to keep all the parts together no matter what size of piece you're working with. Looking forward to using this for years to come.

      Well built and great features.
      The RIDGID table saw with scissor stand is a well built table saw with great features. I set up the saw and checked the alignment and squareness as per the instructions and everything was right on. This saw has an encloser around the saw blade with a place to connect your shop vacuum or dust collection system to. There is very little dust that escapes. I also like the way the rip fence works. The fence can be placed either left or right of the saw blade and is adjusted by sliding the extension on the right side of the table and locks in place with the push of a lever under the right side of the table. For smaller width cuts you use the left side and for wider cuts, up to 25 inches with the fence on the right side. The saw is smooth running with almost no vibration. The cross cut guide is cast aluminum and quite accurate but does not have any stops for any of the angles. I always use an angle finder to set the degrees any way. The height adjustment is gear driven and works very easy and smooth. The saw has a place to store everything when they are not in use so you won't have to hunt when you need something. The rip fence snaps in a cradle on the left side and the Allen/Phillips screw driver tool used to remove the bolts that hold the scissor stand on has a home there as well. The stand does not fold when attached to the saw. The push stick tool, that comes with the saw, snaps onto 2 pins on the left side of the saw. The blade wrenches are stored on the right inside edge of the saw frame and the blade guard and anti-kickback dogs are stored in a bracket on the out side when not in use. I did discover that the anti-kickback dogs will catch on the table if you try to lower the blade when they are in use. I would suggest that you make the blade height adjustment first and then attach the dogs and blade guard. The saw blade angle adjustment is manual. You loosen the angle clamp and slide to the desired angle then re tighten the clamp. The table has a nice finish on it so the wood slides easily with out marking. The blade that came with the saw makes very smooth cuts. The power safety switch can be easily be turned off with the touch of your knee so your hands are free to hold the piece being sawed. I like the saw very much and do recommend it highly. The manufacturer does not recommend the use of a dado blade on this saw. It states in the owners manual to use 10" saw blades only.

      This tablesaw and stand were easy to assemble. I’m not sure of the standard blade but with a finish blade installed this is a great price for a quality saw. I’d recommend this for anyone looking for a good table saw.

      Purchased as a replacement for older saw. Works great! I didn’t like the fact that it came with a stand because I didn’t need one.

      Very disappointed
      Just very low quality. The guard doesn't square up, the blade looks like it doesn't sit right, you can't use the kick back guard with the the blade lowered for plywood, came rusted, the plate around the blade doesn't sit flush so as you go to push the wood gets stuck, the sound coming out of the motor is crazy loud like the motor is poorly built or outdated. Just avoid this, there's a reason why it's under $500
