Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw....But Overpriced by about $125.00 This is a compact, powerful saw. Easy set-up in seconds and light weight for transport. Mine was dead on out of the box (the head square to table) and I paid $338.00 for mine. Someone lied and returned it claiming the laser was off & could not be adjusted....it was dead on out of the open box return as well. However, what I paid is where I think the price should come in at. Reason.....I made my own aluminum table extension that bolted up to the bored holes already present from the factory to the right which solved the problem of water run off from cutting 24" tile....and it looks like and works like it was made for the saw just like the extension the 10" model comes with. This saw would be worth $500 plus tax...IMO.....w/extension. Sorry Ridged...just stating some facts. That one flaw aside....this is a pro saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to operate. Lightweight. This one beast of a wet saw. It cuts 24 in tile with ease. I love that its so lightweight and easy to setup. I've used way more expensive saws that weren't half as precise and reliable. Now that I know there is a lifetime warranty, I'm even more amazed. I would have given 5 stars if the saw was made to be right handed. No wet saw is, but it's still a complaint.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to cut 12x24 tile without extension table tray. Extremely difficult to cut 12x24 tile without extension tray and Ridgid does not make it. Rigid please create extension table tray, people will buy them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for the price This tile saw is great, although the splash extension could have engineered a higher back splash (minor issue). I like that I can do plunge cuts in tile for project boxes without have to cut through to the edge. The 8 inch blade has a limit of working with 24 inch tiles, but the smaller blade is more precise when plunge cutting. The built in laser is helpful in double-checking your cutting where you want. The drain makes it easy to change water without having to disturb the work site. Get a quick inline garden hose shut off for the drain for maximum flexibility when draining. Overall, a great product for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from bad bearings Not for everyday use, ive had 3 and bearings on the armature assembly went up in two of them ,one went up a second time after it was replaced once. Working with the 3rd which was a replacement and it sounds like they are getting loose in this one too. Other then that fine saw just wish they would figure something out to stop the problem from happening for future buyers

Side Extension/Accessories

Has it been released yet? Any plans to? Does the 10" saw extension work in its place?
Asked by: RamblinVes
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID! No, there have been no side extension or other tile saw accessories released or marketed by RIDGID, and there are no known plans for any to advise of at this time. There are no 10” saw extensions offered that are compatible with the RIDGID R4040 tile saw model, that we are aware of. Regards, RIDGID

wondering when/ if the side table extension will be available as it is drilled and tapped but have not seen any mention of it being offered.

Asked by: floorlou

Where is the 8" Glass Tile Blade?

It's a nice saw, but I need to cut some glass tile. Where is the 8" glass tile blade for this saw?
Asked by: AVXFlyer
We do not make or support a 8” glass tile blade, so we do not have any information on one to advise of. Thanks, RIDGID
