I have decided to buy this saw not as a replacement but as a complement to my stationary/big bertha/woodshop tablesaw.
Nothing new compared to other comments. I just want to add my 5 stars to the stack.
The original 500 CAD price was a bit high for me and I was about to resign myself to wait and bang !.
150 CAD OFF !. The promo is still active.
On Homedepot.ca website, search for TS2400LS instead of R4510. I think the R4510 is the new version but
HD site is not up to date. Anyways…
If you are looking for a very good all-terrain tablesaw, put your shoes, your coat, run (or take your van) and pick one. This saw is really impressive.
Lightweight, powerful motor (15A) with soft start, a bit noisy but not a big deal.
Everything at the right place. Good blade and effective support, very easy to fold/unfold.
The fence is working very well and the miter, after a couple of adjustements, performs A1.
The table looks to be in aluminium and is extendable, allowing to add a small router table add-on.
The anti kick-back system takes a little practice but again, works correctly.
The blade protector is one of the best I’ve seen on this range of saws.
Don’t forget to register your saw to get the lifetime warranty or it will be limited to 2 years.
Very easy to perform on ridgid.com.
I’ve ripped some wet 2×6 cedar boards today and I’ve been really pleased with the result.
Thanks for the time you took to read and I hope it will help you if you’re in the decision process.
Other reviews helped me a lot.
