I post that for those who are thinking about buying a new saw. I have a R4511 and I love it.
My local Ridgid rep stated that the saw is set to get an update sometime soon(probably a riving knife)...but it will most definitely keep the granite top. He stated that neither HD or Ridgid was loosing money on the granite top. He stated that they ship by the pallet, not by weight so it does not matter how heavy it is. Due to this, they will never come out with a one piece rail system for it as they want to keep shipping to one pallet per unit.
I asked him about any new tools coming out and he stated the big thing now is the jobmax tools. He stated that you can buy different heads online. I asked him about a new bandsaw, he stated and I quote “not anytime soon”.
He seemed pretty knowledgeable and as an owner of a 4511 I hope he is right. I hope more people get the chance to get one of these wonderful saws.
