So from the pictures I can verify the following:
15 amp motor, 5000 rpm no load speed, 24” right rip capacity, 7” left. 3.25” depth of cut @ 0 degrees. 55 lbs.

If it is nearly identical to the R4516, which is likely, it should also have the following capabilities:
5/8” arbor, accomidates 6” dado blade up to 3/4”. Dual Locking Fence.

Can’t find any info on external dimensions or table dimensions.

I’m making a spreadsheet comparing this to the DeWalt DW745 and Porter Cable PCB220TS. So far the Dado capability is best on the ridgid, which is nice.

Any opinions on the DeWalt DW745’s rack-and-pinion fence? Seems like it might be a really nice feature to have.
