Rated 2 out of 5 by RobakTile excellent idea, poor design
Wouldnt waste your money on any 7", may as well just get a 10". I agree with the previous review about the sloppy tray and being loose. My biggest issue with this wet saw, and probably one of the designers biggest flaw is water containment. Simply put, after several cuts, the ground below will be soaked. As the tray passes the edge of the water pan and you stop it to bring it back, all of the water that collects on the tray spills out the back side of the tray. This saw cannot be used inside at all and must be filled up with water several times, based on the size of job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RedWingsFan Track is sloppy, blade chips tile.
I bought this R4030 Tile Saw because of Ridgid's reputation for performance and quality. This saw has neither. The table guides have a lot of slop in them and cause the table to wander if you don't remember to pull it to one side. The supplied blade chips tile, not badly but it does chip it. I wait til the blade is up to speed and the water is flowing. I used a consistent speed through the blade and still get chipping. Overall I am very disappointed with this Tile Saw.
