Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blade wabble Got this saw today was so excited to have another ridgit miter saw for my crew to work with, all the options on the saw were what convinced me to purchase the saw, got back home set it up and as soon as I ran it I noticed that the blade was wobbling way too much, I set my 90 degree square and gently turn the blade by hand to check the reason and I tell you what after marking the blade on zero turned it around and the blade was almost 1/8" away from my square. I have many ridgit tools that I am very happy with but this one is not!! going back to return it tomorrow

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work horse Located this saw at my local Home Depot on sale. Picked it up and got it home for set up. Easy set up, great features. Not sure what the blade wobble talk is, mine works perfect, no issues. I did have an issue with the LSA and am currently waiting for a response.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay away from this model! Upon setting this saw up, I experienced blade wobble that was extremely noticable. When contacting Rigid, I was told to return for a newer stock that they didn't all do this. Well I returned it and the second one was even worse. This on had blade wobble and also a sound like a bad bearing in the motor. Very poor quality assurance. Don't buy the R4221!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wobble - not what I expected from this brand I bought this saw based on price and brand quality compared to others out there. When I set up the saw and put the blade on, the saw had significant more wobble than I expected. I took the blade off and reviewed the set up per the instructions and still had the same issue. I did buy a red blade, but did not switch it out yet. Any suggestion on anything I can do to adjust it or am I stuck with a wobble on the saw?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Saw functionality I noticed when I was setting up the saw that I was not able to get a 45 by 45 degree because of the fences even though they were slid out as far as possible. Then started checking reviews and found that there is blade wobble. Happy with the price and LSA. But when will these problems be fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw is well built, has excellent features and is well priced. When shopping for my saw I compared this saw to most others in the market and found it had more features at a lower cost than most others. I was told about the "wobble" issues, so I tried my saw at the store, it work perfectly and continues to perform great everyday.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blade wobble! What seemed like a killer saw at first, quickly turned south. The motor sounded strange on startup, like a bearing was gone. But the worst of it was a wobble in the blade. I assumed I had bought a bad blade, but after sticking a Diablo on, I realized it was the saw. The Home Depot rep I spoke with said I was the fourth to fifth guy to walk in with this complaint that week! He said a recall was probably coming. No kidding. I like the detent system; love the LED lights over laser, and the general build seemed good. But if a saw can't cut straight, it's about as good as a phone that can't make a call. Returned my saw and looking at Milwaukee...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Known Issues With Arbor Ridgid customer service is finally recognizing the defects in the arbor. I'm on my 4th saw this month. All have had the "blade wobble" due to a batch of bad abors and bearings. Ridgid CS states the engineers are working on a solution. I am sticking with this saw because once that issue is fixed this will be an outstanding addition to the construction site.
