I own the Ridgid. I purchased it heavily discounted when HD stopped selling them in the store. If you can get one for cheap and don’t mind doing some tuning (new link belt, stabilizing the stand, balancing the wheels), it turns out to be an OK bandsaw. I’ve had to replace a few parts on it because they were made out of cheap pot metal. My suggestion is to look elsewhere especially if you plan on doing resawing.
