I have a new R4512 table saw that I recently purchased and put together. The saw, as far as I can tell, was perfect right out of the box. I have used it several rimes and for the most part I am pleased.
The one problem I do have is it seems like Ridgid changed their caster system at some point. All of or most of the videos that I have seen show a 4 caster system with the foot pedal in the front of the saw. Very handy for the operator.
My saw has only 3 casters with the foot pedal either on the right or left side of the saw. I can’t have mine on the left side because that side fits fairly close to the wall of my shop. So I put mine on the right side but that is a bit of a pain because it’s a long reach because of the top extension. I have to stand off to the side to reach the pedal. Very hard, but not impossible to do but it would work much better if I had a four caster system with the foot pedal in the front.
When did Ridgid change this? Is it possible to change it?
