I know some folks have had great success with the Ridgid 4512. It’s got a lot to like in terms of very low price, nice weight, mobile base, and it works on 115 volts. It runs smooth and quiet. BUT, if you get one, be sure to check the blade to miter slot alignment at different blade heights. Many people, me included, have had major problems with a defect in these saws that can not be fixed as far as I know. Your only option is to exchange it for another one after you have spent the time and effort to transport it home, assemble it, test it, then transport it back to the store and start all over. There have been instances posted on here where this has happened more than once to the same person, so it is not a minor problem.
