7 in. Job Site Tile Saw with Laser is rated out of 5 by 26.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Whynot from Great Portability I purchased this saw on a whim at Home Depot as it was on sale for under $200. I was looking for a saw that can do plunge cuts and had better portability than my large bridge saw. Once assembled I read all the reviews to see what others thought of this saw before I tested it out. This would give me a heads up of what to expect. Once everything was checked for calibration I did my first rip cut on ceramic. lots of chipping. Next I tried a porcelain tile. Same issue. Then I looked at the blade and noticed how wide the kerf was compared to my other blades for my bridge saw. I went into my supply and found I had a 7in thin kerf glass blade. I put this on and tried again. Both cuts on ceramic and porcelain were so smooth and not a chip to be found. As a carpenter with many mitre saws and table saws , I have never used the manufacture brand blades that come with any of my saws. As far as the water spray concern, this saw sprays less than my bridge saw and table top wet saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jbrittain24 from good product I recently bought this tile saw form the home depot. The saw works great. I am a general contractor and do a lot of tile work indoors. I have a problem using this saw indoors. You cant cut tile without getting everything all wet, like the floors. When you are cutting tile the water sprays out the back side of the saw. The rubber flap that is suppose to keep the water in seems like its not low enough. Does someone have any idea how to stop this problem or is any other contractors having the same issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonnyGardner79 from Best wet saw I prefer this one to the 10" one because the blade doesn't wobble as much. its very solid and sturdy and super light and portable. I've used full sized saws and I'd put this against them any day. it makes very clean cuts. it even cuts glass tile with very little chipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by usmcwest0352 from Great tile saw I upgraded from a small craftsman wet tile saw that I had used for 4 or 5 jobs and I was totally impressed. I love the rest of my ridgid products and was excited to get this tile saw for a bathroom remodel at my own house. Deffinetely saved some time upgrading my saw and everything functioned great. I also like the stand it comes with, great to have adjustable height. I used to work off of the ground or on saw horses.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JoeJoe from Table wobbles. Motor has alot of vibrations. Rough cuts I purchased this saw a couple of years back to cut big tile. My other small tile saw just wouldn't cut 13 inch tile or bigger. I had never open the box or register it. I had a big tile job so I opened it made all the adjustments and I can say this is of poor design. Very unhappy with this product. The table is it big problem and the motor is noisy and cuts are rough and yes I have the blade on right. I still have proof of purchase from Home Depot west Wichita store.

won't cut thru regular tile
I am using R4030 and trying to cut 12 X 24 tiles for floor. Saw cuts almost half way thru tile . Even when I turn tile over, it still did not cut thru totally. Finally I had to put two tiles together to get the top one high enough to cut thru. I just bought this saw and really like it when it did work with two tiles. Just doesn't seem like something is right about the setup. Any ideas. I would think I should be able to cut any depth but I couldn't find any instructions or videos on line that told me what might be wrong or how to lower blade or raise table. Can you help please?
there's a knob on the top that you can loosen and adjust the blade depth

R4030 tile saw. When i put the motor head at 45 degrees, the blade hits the saw table. Why?
Just bought new R4030 tile saw, getting ready to use it for 1st time., When I put the motor head in the 45 degree setting, the blade hits the saw table. What an I doing wrong? The blade depth is fine at zero degrees.
also adjust the depth by loosening the knob on top

constant water supply
Can you hook this saw up to a constant fresh water supply instead of using the pump?
probably but you'd have to have somewhere for the water to go as it would just overflow the tray and get water everywhere

Paver Stone Cutting Okay?
Will this saw also work to cut paver stones? Does it require a different cutting wheel than the one shipped with the unit? (I understand paver stones may need to be cut on both sides due to cut depth).
Thank you for choosing RIDGID. This tool is designed for straight line cutting operations such as cross cutting, mitering, ripping and beveling. Please note: This saw is designed to cut man-made tile, pavers and stone tile products only.
