This saw has great improvements from older Ridgid model; enclosed motor, riving knife, etc. Does a really good job (not perfect but really good) of eliminating sawdust with 4" vac line attached.
Easy assembly and pretty accurate right out of box. Have a friend on call to stand it up though.
30" rip width allows easy lengthwise cuts on 4x8 sheet goods. Have not tried to cut 8/4 maple yet but no problems ripping 2x6 lumber with included combo blade. Standard aftermarket blades fit with no issues.
Only thing I didn't like is table insert. Included insert works great, levels easily and is secure but is 1/8" steel. Thin edge supports at opening make it challenging to make zero clearance or dado inserts.
For folks looking for a good middle of the pack tool, this saw will be perfect. Better than most other inexpensive brands, but it's also not a top of the line professional tool. Well worth the price, and if you can get it on sale, you can't go wrong.
I'm very happy with it and look forward to years of use.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Where can I get zero clearance insert?

This saw does not use the somewhat standard 1/2" thick table insert,but uses thin metal plate. Where can I get inserts for zero clearance or dado setup?
