I’m debating between the R4512 & C21833.
I’ve read all of the different discussions. They’ve got the same guts. The Ridgid has a better warranty and a better(or more convenient, at least) single-pedal lift system. Ridgid is cheaper most of the time. I’ve yet to read a single “vs” post that concludes you should get the Craftsman (but I’m trying to talk myself into the Craftsman because I just prefer Craftsman tools).
My question deals with the rail system on the Craftsman vs the Ridgid. The rails on the Ridget have pre-drilled holes to mount the side tables / extension. The rails on the Craftsman have t-slots that the tables/extension slide & tighten into.
Does anyone have an opinion on which style of rail would be better? It seems to me like the t-slots on the Craftsman would be significantly better for making your own extension inserts and things of that nature…
