As a moderately-skilled woodworker, I actually like my 4512. It does what I want it to do,to my satisfaction. However comma I do have one issue with it. Every time I move it (sometimes a few feet, somethines a few inches) the casters will release and the 200-plus-pound saw will drop to the floor. My floor is concrete and the surface (some smooth, some slightly rough) does not make a difference, nor does the direction of movement (straight front-back or side-side, at an angle, rotating, slow or fast)
I’ve looked and jiggered, but cannot see a way to adjust them, or the latching mechanism. I’ve asked Ridgid and was told there were no known problems with the casters. I’ve looked through the existing forums and elsewhere online and have not found an answer.
