I had a ryobi and I hated it. I’m pretty sure it was brand new when I got it. Still in the box off CL, clean. It didn’t have soft start and would jar work pieces when I turned it on. The blade also wasn’t that balanced so it would leave nasty saw marks. I sold it with the sled I built for it for $80 and bought a Jet contractor saw I found on CL for $200. Guy either didn’t know what he had or didn’t care because it was very new, had a diablo 80T blade on it AND gave me a craftsman squirrel fan with DustRite bag too. They were practically brand new. The saw retails around $750 or something. I meant to sell it and upgrade to a cabinet or larger table saw. It works really well. CL is a gold mine. I’m just constantly digging.

I have other things that are Ryobi and they’re fine. My planer is a delta and I haven’t run into any problems with it.
