I saw the Rigid R4511 on sale at HD. All they had left was the display model, so I got 10% off the sale price. Still paid $425.00…well my wife did for my xmas present. I am giving my Craftsman contractors saw to my oldest son who just bought his first home a couple of months ago.
The saw is put together, but I will go back over it and make sure everything is done correctly. I know how store workers put stuff together.
I won’t get a chance to do anything with it until after the New Year. Thanks to all of you who own one and wrote about it. When I first saw the saw I was undecided about the purchase. Your reviews helped seal the deal. That and the price compared to the other saws.

That was a nice deal, you will be happy with your purchase, mine came almost dead on from factory assembly, but that is a smart decision to double check everything, just to make sure it is properly set up.
With proper care it will last many years and make sure you take special care of the top.

Been looking at this saw at HD myself. It will have to wait for a while but keeping my eyes open.

congrats. so far 4511 owners have had very positives things to say about it.

scrappy – don’t keep your eyes open too long ;) the saw is discontinued, and once HD clears their current stock, its all gone – rumors of a cast iron saw to replace it.

Have your say...
