It’s subjective….and they have different features. The R4511 has cabinet mounted trunnions, which are easier to reach and easier to align, plus are heavier. I’d guess that it’ll go quickly if the price is right. Not everyone likes the granite top, but it’s heavier and flatter. The fence on the R4511 is arguably not quite as good as the one on the 3612. The R4511 and R4512 have riving knives, the TS3612 does not. The R4511 and R4512 are hybrid style saws with the motor enclosed in the cabinet, which saves space, improves DC, and allows for a shorter drive belt (theoretically smoother) ....the 3612 has an outboard motor. Pick what you like….as with any saw, the end performance is largely influenced by setup and blade choice.
