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.

Ridgid Has Done It Again
The RidgidTable Saw with Scissor Stand is a great tool for hobbyist or pro. The thought put into this saw makes it one of the best I have used. The storage on board of all accessories aids in loss prevention of these items. The telescoping fence giving additional width for ripping larger materials. I especially like the flip down tip fence for safer narrow stock ripping. The 15 amp motor seems to be sufficient while sawing harder stock. The large on & off switch is easily accessed. The stand seems to be of quality material to hold up the weight of the saw and makes it easy for transporting the saw reducing overall size. Note: Unable to search photos.

    The saw was easy to assemble. It did a nice job of cutting boards down. I really enjoy this saw.
        i was one of the first, now I regret it
        As of 10/1/21 I had very little information on the home depot website or the rigid website to go off of so I knew I was taking a risk in a new product in hopes the improvements would be better than previous models. I was wrong. I havent even turned it on and I am dissapointed. When I recieved the saw I finally had an opportunity to look through this new manual. It does not technically accept Dado stacks (although I think there is enough room to get a small one on there.). The minimum blade kerf is .10mm, so basically no blade works with the riving knife on this accept maybe a 24 tooth rip cut blade. It mentions nothing of the soft start system. It was way out of square upon arrival. I had to completly redo the scale on all the rulers. The pullout tab (lower assembly) on the rip fence is on the opposite side you expect it to be. The newish fence system is somewhat better because you now have pins to hold it square, but it is terribly hard to move and extremely frustrating to position. It just seems not well made. I know this is partially my fault for rolling the dice and hoping for the best, but this new product does not meet my expectations. Returning it today.
