Mitch – I wouldn’t pay $400 for a used G1022Z (it’d take the G1022ProZ to warrant that much, and even then it’s not a steal), and if you don’t need portability from jobsite to jobsite I’d skip the portables….every mechanical advantage goes to the stationary saws. Of those you listed, that leaves the Ridgid R4512. It’s worth noting that the Craftsman 21833 is essentially the same saw (both made by Dayton). You’ll need to check the alignment closely …some have been defective and deviate when the blade is raised. Get a competitors coupon to help with price if you go this route.

Option #4 is a great option if the right deal comes along, and if you have 220v available (or can get it). It never hurts to patiently watch CL…be ready to move quickly. If you’d post your general geographic region, other members might know of a deal for you.

Whatever saw you get, align it well, and put a good blade on it.
