Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saw easy to use I got this saw for Christmas, I looked at many different saws, this was the best quality and a good sale price plus an extra $50 off for in store special. the saw was Easy to set up, the wheels make it super easy to roll around the shop and doesn't move when sitting on legs, very sturdy, love the fence system doesn't move when locked down, for exact cuts, attachments are good quality. It could come with an adapter for the dust pickup from 4inch to 2 inch, not everyone has a large dust collection system. I am very happy with this ridged table saw, I will now look at their other tools for future purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for the money...so far The quick review: PROS - the price, it's quiet, comes ready equipped for my 4" dust collector, stability, built in mobility, riving knife, and it's quick and easy to remove the "safety" features when they get in my way (i.e. the blade guard, splitter, anti-kickback pawls). CONS - no easy way to fine tune the alignment of the blade to the mitre, thankfully it's good enough for my current needs, the cheap handwheels and knobs for blade height and bevel, the less than flat 10" blade that comes with the saw UNKNOWNS - longevity? the split rail. SPECIFICS: A big thanks to all those who took time to write reviews. As a result when I finally decided to buy the saw I knew exactly what I was getting. There are a lot of reviews - if you're on the fence like I was - read them all! Not just on this site but other sites as well. I'm generally not a huge fan of the Ridgid name, like many brands it's hit-and-miss depending on the specific product, but this saw is so good that it's making me consider more Ridgid purchases - I bought mine for $499.00 Canadian. The other two saws I was looking at were hybrid saws that started at $1200.00. This saw fits a very nice niche for the DIYer and is a major upgrade over my portable. ASSEMBLY For the most part I was very happy with the instructions with two exceptions. 1) STAND ASSEMBLY When I got to installing the fence storage brackets I discovered that I, like another reviewer, had installed my stand incorrectly. There is no warning in the instructions, so if you buy this saw you might want to make yourself aware of the following: You get four panels to attach to four outside corners. The two side panels have the RIDGID logo stamped into the metal - one of these panels has two very small holes drilled near the top - this is for the fence storage which comes later. This panel should be placed on the motor/power switch side of the saw. In the future RIDGID needs to add this note to their instructions or just drill the same holes on both panels (which you could do yourself but shouldn't have to). As well, when assembling the panels leave the screws loose enough until you get them all threaded. If you tighten all of them as you go you might have some issues getting the last panel assembled as you need a bit of play to get the screws aligned and threaded properly. 2) WHEELED BASE ASSEMBLY Good luck. Looking at the tiny illustration was no help to me at the time as I hadn't a clue how the base was to work - thankfully I tested it before flipping the saw over. What I discovered was that I assembled the rear wheels incorrectly. I think this is a pretty easy mistake to make - the one on display at Home Depot was assembled incorrectly and I know at least one other reviewer gave the saw a low score because their rear wheels didn't work - I'm thinking they made the same mistake as I did. Just make sure you test your assembly before you flip the saw over. PERFORMANCE and TUNING 1) For the next generation of this saw they need to invent a way of fine tuning the blade to the mitre. Like other reviewers I took my gauge (measures to .001 inches) and noted that at full height the blade jumps out quite a bit. Most of this was immediately fixed by putting on a good Freud blade but I see no way of getting perfect alignment without a lot of work. I'll still keep the stock blade for ripping down 2x4s and other rough work - the blade is fine for what it is - wouldn't call it garbage at all! With a nice new 90 tooth Freud blade I am wondering why I even own a track saw anymore. 2) The fence - way better than the one they had on display at the local store - not sure who set that floor model up but they should be ashamed - based on that floor model I was not going to buy this saw. In the long run I'll probably upgrade the fence and the mitre but for now it's fine. Aligns nicely (I still double check) and though I never trust the rail tape measure on saws, once set it up it's actually very accurate. 3) Power - not sure what other people are using these saws for but mine cuts through all the material beautifully. I guess if you're used to a 3hp cabinet saw this might be a step down, but again, not a fair comparison to make All in all, very happy with the saw. If it runs well for the next seven years I'll have no complaints. If you don't have the space or the need/budget for a hybrid or cabinet saw - this deserves your serious consideration - especially at the new lower price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HD staff very helpful and accommodating The store display unit and box cover image for the R4512 showed a 4 caster lift on this table saw (which I really wanted). After opening the box I found the "new improved" lift with two fixed wheels and only one caster. I contacted the store and described the situation and was first told to return the 260 lb. beast and if I wanted I could take the display unit. I suggested it would be much easier for me to remove 8 screws and swap out the lift assembly on the display unit. Joe from HD said sure and agreed that the display should match what the customer purchased. It took 10 minutes to complete and now I have what I really wanted, BTW ... I love this table saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, LSA a pain Bought the saw last winter, and as everyone states, it is fantastic. True cuts, solid, fence is really accurate, wheels are great. Just build a router table extension in the blank spot right of the blade. Disappointed with the LSA upgrade process online. It failed, and I had to mail my proof to Ridgid. Same thing just happened with my new nailers purchased Black Friday - more mailing to do. It almost appears as if it's designed to fail, reducing the number of LSA's Ridgid has to honour. As a note, mailing in the proof on the R4512 DID work. It's just inconvenient, and the delay of 2 months is very 1980's. This is the reason I rated it 4 stars. All in all, great product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from gutless motor on a good saw I have been using this saw for about a month and it is a nice saw except the motor they put on is pretty gutless Works fine as long as you move the wood slowly. Was able to cut three inch hardwood but very slowly. like three inches a minute. even 3/4 inch plywood you are slowed down. Should have spent the extra money and bought a proper cabinet saw. The rest of the saw is just fine. Doesn't come with a dado insert which should be included. and extra $60 dollars from their service center as they don't carry it which is really dumb as well. If I thought it was just my saw with the wimpy motor I would exchange it as I like the saw. Other issue is if you order it online unless you live in Ontario be prepared to wait up to three weeks to get it. Extremely slow shipping. Ended up returning the online order before I recieved it and driving an hour to a store to get one in store. I think from the reviews so saws just get wimpy motors and mine is one. Maybe they are all the same. who knows.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from UNDER POWERED For the price, its a great saw.....for the novice. This unit is way under powered and has difficulties ripping any hardwoods. The motor binded up with even the remotest of hardwoods and on 3 occasions within 28 days of owning this saw, came to a complete stop. 2nd, the foot lever has been moved to the side of the unit rather than in the front of the unit where it originally was. This makes accessing the foot pedal to raise the table clumsy and awkward. 3rd, it took a long time to assemble this table (2hrs) and more time was spent on making the extension plates true and level than any other part of the process. 4th, rip fence is sloppy at best And finally, purchasing a factory made original part s(Dado throat plate) was virtually next to impossible. They are not readily accessible anywhere online, forcing you to make your own. We got bounced around from the U.S. parts provider to the Canadian provider in Ontario who then bounced us to Maple Ridge, BC who was just a jerk to deal with and said he wouldnt order the part for us because RIGID owed him $7,000 in unpaid service bills. GONG SHOW, and until they paid their invoices, he wasn't making any non-refundable orders. And how is that my problem?? In the end we returned the table after only owning it for 28 days when the motor stopped working while in the middle of a cut. Only managed to complete 3 small home jobs ripping plywood and pine. Frustrated, extremely let down by the quality, lack of available add-on parts, and most definitely service, we were done. After being RIGID fans for years, we will never buy another RIGID tool again, due to the experience with the authorized service/repair company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Saw the price Bought this few months back so have used it few times a week at the least. Very quiet, very heavy, sturdy saw. Moved my shop shortly after bought the saw and the fact that you can lift the saw on its wheels and move it is a very nice feature. Vertical tilting of the blade, the long screw... NOT the best design... works OK, but if you have ti adjust the blade every hour... find something else. Insert is a joke so consider buying or making yourself a zero tolerance insert.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Saw if the Factory Gets it Right I purchased a Ridgid R4512 table saw in 2014. After assembling the saw and performing the necessary checks to set it up, I discovered that the blade was not parallel to the mitre slot. I followed the instructions in the manual for correcting this problem but was unable to do so. Because I am some distance from the nearest store, I ignored the problem past the time allowed to return the saw to Home Depot so took it to a Ridgid authorized repair depot who corrected the problem. They informed me that the fault was in the manufacture of the product.. It was a time-consuming frustrating experience. Since a buyer is unlikely able to check such alignment tolerances at a store before buying, I strongly recommend that anyone purchasing this saw check the tolerances very carefully before completing assembly. That way if you encounter a problem such as I did, you won't have to completely disassemble the saw before returning it to Home Depot. As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a heavy machine. When it is set up and aligned properly, this is a great saw for the price. Just hope they get it right the first time.

What is the thickness of the throat plate? Would I be able to make zero clearance plates for this saw?

Asked by: EMBY5703
Not near the saw but yes, you can make your own zero clearance plate, the one that comes with the saw is ok, but there is room for improvement. You can use as template quite easily.

is there a dust collection bag or something for this saw. If not how easy would it be to put one on it. Present saw has a box under it that collects 90% of the sawdust but the wheels on this one look like that would not work.

Asked by: Roger
Love my saw. Bag would not fit as you surmise with the wheels. Without dust collection system connected, a lot of sawdust collects in the box under the saw until it starts blowing out the throat when you turn the saw on. Even with blade off it is hard to bang and vacuum the sawdust out. Plan for a simple dust collection system.

Can the fence be upgraded on this saw, or is the mounting system proprietary to Rigid?

Asked by: John
Not sure but I think I have seen on YouTube that it can be done

This is for the fine woodworkers that bought this saw recently. There was an older model were the trunion in the saw would wobble and there was a blade alignment problem. Also there was a problem with the fence loosing square sometimes. Any on this?

Asked by: Mateja
I have not had any issues with the saw. Actually love it. Mine is square always. No wobbles at all.

Looking for someone who has experience with this saw and cutting hardwood of various thickness. I was looking at much more expensive Contractor and Hybrid saws when someone suggested this saw. At first glance it appears under powered.

Asked by: Canuck888
Ya know. No one needs 5 hp on a tablesaw. This saw is fine . Everything else is crazily over powered. I have cut thru 2 inch thick maple with a hand held skil saw wich is probably only a 1/4 horsepower. 3 and 5 horse motors are way over kill. I know I will get a lot of flack for this but its true. Just mine is bigger than yours mentality.

Can this saw accept dado blades?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, the arbor is long enough for a dado stack, but you will have to buy an after-market plate or make one yourself.
