I have ordered a new saw and am wondering what I should ask for my old one. It is a Ridgid R4511. Great condition, only one little chip in the top.

What would you pay for one on the used market?

Would help to know your (the saw’s) location.

It could be worth more if it was within an hour’s drive; or nothing if it’s on the other side of the country.

I have a R4511.
I believe that around $500.00 would be fair value.
What are you buying?

As I’m sure you know, they’re not making the 4511 anymore and it’s still a very good tool (I love mine). I would think you could sell it all day long for $300. You might get lucky and get more from the right buyer.

I live in Raleigh, NC. I am replacing it with a 3HP Saw Stop.

The general rule of thumb is roughly 50% of current resale of a comparable saw, with considerations for condition, age, extras, initial quality level, etc. The fact that many R4511’s got sold at a clearance price of ~ $300 is working against you. A new Steel City 35990C (cast iron top) with the same guts and fence is $600 shipped, and a 35990G (w/granite top) is $680 shipped. The current R4512, Craftsman 21833, and Porter Cable PCB270TS are ~ $500-$600. I’d think $350-$400 would be a reasonable asking price.
