It looks like my hopes of snagging a rigid r4511 is hopeless so which TS would you guys pick next??? I would like to stay under the $900 mark. I would like it to be a hybrid as I like the smaller depth of the saw (no motor sticking out the rear – takes up to much room when parked). Always needs to have a mobile base. Lets hear the picks. I am in Canada but will more than likely get one in montana (or shipped to Montana). Thanks for any info.

My favorites are the Craftsman 21833 Contractors ($550) or the Craftsman 22114 Hybrid ($799). Both have been reviewed an talked bout on LJs, both pretty solid

In addition to those two Craftsman models mentioned, you might also find a deal on a 22124 or the new 22116.

Grizzly has the G0661 for $850 plus s/h. It’s listed as a “contractor saw” but has the motor mounted inside the enclosure. It also has full cast wings, a riving knife, and a nice fence….worth some consideration. If you’ve got 220v, I’d strongly encourage you to look into one of their full industrial cabinet saws.

The Steel City 35920 is essentially a full cabinet version of the R4511….it retails for ~ $650 AFAIK.

You might also check into a deal on a Jet Proshop 708482k, or some version of it.

Depending on where you are at CL would be the way to go. You could get a nice cabinet saw on CL from arouind here that would be as good of a deal as the 4511 was recently. A nice cabinet saw would not take up much of a foot print and you might be able to find a Grizzly, Jet, Ridgid, Powermatic or Unisaw. Those I listed are saws I see listed on a fairly regular basis on our CL.

I think a grizzly would be in your future… it was on my list before I snagged the R4511, not at the $299 price though.

Just when I thought I had waited till to late, HD got shipment of 4 R4511’s so I am now a new owner. Can’t wait to say goodbye to my delta. It’s been good to me and I have built a lot of furniture with it but it will be nice to have a bigger and better saw. Thanks for the help any way guys.

Congrats on the new saw, and thanks for updating us. Get that saw setup well and put a good aftermarket blade on it…

I would guess HD will be coming out witha repacment for the 4511 soon. If you can’t wait go with Grizzly.

Yep, the last ones sold for 199. unbelievable. but here’s something better…. use one of their 20% coupons and you’ll have a 3HP with Triple V-belt drive cab saw and a solid fence for under 500.

and here’s a review
