Heavy Duty 10 in. Portable Table Saw With Stand is rated out of 5 by 27.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Chuck4648 from O.k. for a beginner or hobbyist I've had this saw for 2 years now, so feel comfortable making an assessment. I am not a professional carpenter, but have become a fairly accomplished "weekend woodworker" over the past 3-4 years. I bought this saw as a first table saw after getting tired of using a circular saw and a guide. I was initially very happy with the saw, and still use it regularly. It has several strengths, including very easy portability for a small shop like mine, as well as a pretty good fence for an entry level saw, and decent dust collection using a shop vac. As I've used the saw, however, I begin to notice some small things that have become increasingly frustrating. For example, the miter slot on the left hand side of my saw is not uniformly sized, so when I adjust my Incra miter gauge (the gauge that comes with the saw is o.k. but I wanted more precision) at the middle of the slot it binds and sticks at the ends. The same is true when I use a crosscut sled. Additionally, I was cutting some floating panel doors for a cabinet and discovered that each slot was coming out slightly uneven. I checked the flatness of the table and found that there is a slight dip near where the throat plateinserts into the table. The saw bogs down a bit when ripping anything thicker than 3/4 inch, but that is not a real problem, I just slow down the feed rate. Probably my biggest irritation lies with the throat plate itself, and Ridgid's decision to go with an odd shape and depth for it. The plate is a very thin piece of metal, which is adjusted by using screws. That is fine when ripping or crosscutting, but when it comes time to use a dado blade, things change dramatically. The only dado plate available from Ridgid accommodates a full 3/4 inch dado stack, but is not effective when using smaller sizes. The obvious answer is to make a zero-clearance insert...but the odd shape and depth of the plate makes it very difficult to do so. Plywood is too thick, as are phenolic plates available from places like Lee Valley. I guess I don't understand why Ridgid chose to make it so difficult to accommodate a tool woodworker use regularly when using a dado stack. Overall, I'm not unhappy with the Ridgid brand (I just bought a sliding compound miter saw and am thrilled with it) but this tool needs work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonnyB from Easy to use. Easy to store. Flawlessly performed on a flooring and closet job I did at home and is still compact enough for a DIY'er to not lose a space in the garage. It's almost the same size as my rolling carry on suitcase and easily fit against the wall and out of the way in my shop.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Blueball from Reduced durability VS previous models I have had to use bandaids and kind words to keep this saw running as long as it has. I have owned several Ridgid table saws over the last 15 years.This one broke far faster than any previous model. The durability of this model is sub-par. A crack formed in the table top within 8 months. Now the motor bearings are completely shot. The design is good. Easy to move, easy to use. Seems to have a bit more power than previous models. Don't buy it if you plan to use it professionally.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Pretty good saw I like this saw for less than heavy duty cutting. My only complaint is with the throat plate. It is not level with the table and does not provide support when cutting narrow pieces. This allows the piece to 'fall' towards the blade and ruin the piece. I will be replacing the throat plate with a home made one. Other than that, I love this saw. The arbor nut becomes very tight and the wrenches provided are not long enough or strong enough to handle it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by texasjim from I would reccomend this saw. If you buy this saw the first thing you need to do is go to a fastener store and buy a 5/8-18 grade 8 hex nut to replace the nut on the saw arbor. The original nut is soft and extremely difficult, and almost impossible, to remove after you have used the saw for any time at all. Other than that the saw works good. I found that the cross cut guide to not quite straight so if you make a cross cut sled use only one slot. Also the slots are not quite the same width so I filed them open where needed using a caliper to check the opening. The cross cut guide is cheap, but can be made to work just fine for the average person. The blade is quite a bit smaller than the slot so I went on McMaster Carr's website and ordered shim stock with adhesive backing and added it to the blade. The rip fence works just fine. I added a removable extra plywood piece using the slots provided to use as a fixture base. I have never had a fine adjustment guide and in fact really do not need one. All the talk about one being missing on this saw is bull c-ap. This saw is quite comparable to all the other contractor saws and I think better than most. My favorite feature is the fold up base that allows me to take my saw out of my 8x12 foot man cave and work on the patio.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brintos from Great Entry Saw This saw is great for a newbie to woodworking. I bought this saw a few years ago and it does everything I need. Compared to other contractor saws you're going to get about just as much power. The one thing I found to be a plus was the extra rip capability that some similar saws didn't (dewalt). I'm a huge fan of the stand that comes with it as I have to drag my saw in and out of the garage every time I use it. When I bought the saw it was a bit higher priced than average for a 15amp saws but it was worth it for the stand and rip points. Now I see a few other brands coming out that mimic this design but at a lower price point, something to consider (Kobalt and WEN). Two things to consider that I found to be an issue; 1, I don't like to use a standard thickness kerf blades (1/8"). It seems to bog the machine down when cutting at regular pace. I switched to a thin kerf blade and that made all the difference. 2. after about 3 years of use the brushes got packed with sawdust. I vacuum the saw out about once a project but I still ran into this issue. This is a simple fix but I would like to see a bit more resilience in this area, or maybe i just need to clean the saw out more... TBD. Overall a good saw to get me going.

1. let me know where I can get a copy of the instruction manual. 2. What is the difference between the r4513 and the older model r4510?
To respond to your question about the differences, my answer would be almost everything. Fortunately, the saw remains very easy to use and extremely accurate for a portable saw. My generalized answer is really based on the components of the saw. Ridgid changed almost all of them. As a user, the primary differences would be: the throat plate is now square instead of rounded, the miter gauge is much lighter and doesn't seem as substantial, the rip fence no longer has a micro adjustment (never used it anyway), but the primary thing in my opinion is the motor. Then new motor spins at a no load speed which is 600 rpm faster than the R4510. Maybe its just my imagination, but this seems to produce a smoother cut. Hope this helps.

is the the motor burn out protected?
Made the mistake of ripping a 2x6 w/ fine tooth blade. and it won't run now. did I burn out the motor?
The switch has circuitry that will protect the motor. If it gets hot, it will melt inside the switch. My saw is put off warranty so I bypassed the burned out circuitry with a new switch, works great. Be sure to use the proper sharp blades and don't abuse the saw.

Is there an option to buy the saw without the stand?
I don't need the stand. Is there an option to purchase it at a lower price without the stand? Thanks!
No, the stand is part of the kit

What material is the Table Top made of?
I don't believe this to be cast iron, but it feels too dense to be aluminum. Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID. The RIDGID R4513 table saws table top is powder coated cast aluminum. Regards, RIDGID

Actual cut depth on the 90?
In one section of this ad, it states this saw can rip through 4" X 4" material in a single pass for fast and accurate cuts. Then in the specifications area, it states the cut depth is 3.5" on the 90°. Please give the specific/accurate cut depth that this saw is capable of. Thank you Store and Ad http://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-15-amp-10-in-Heavy-Duty-Portable-Table-Saw-with-Stand-R4513/100090444
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID. The R4513’s cutting depth at 90 degrees is 3.5 in. Regards, RIDGID
