I’ve found 2 factors why the Ridgid R4510 Heavy-Duty Portable Table Saw is the top table saw in this price range. The first and foremost is definitely the exceptional quality and ease of use of this saw, and the second is the price tag itself, as there are actually quite a few good deals on the Rigid 4510 at this time.

It seems they take less abuse in transit unlike loose tools that are easily thrown into the back of trucks.
The table saw didn’t have much trouble cutting the full 3 1/8″ depth. The lumber you’ll get from it is gorgeous. The height adjustment is very smooth, and the miter adjustment is awesome. It has a better storage for the fence and it goes inside the body of the Ridgid table saw. That’s a much better safety guard.
