    I have used my Riged for 4years never failed in my shop. First thing never let anyone use my tools did it once had someone ruin my drum sander $2200 down the drain

  2. tickettothemoon on October 7, 2023 at 9:14 pm

    Great review. Came here because I looked at both yesterday, and you just made up my mind Sir.

  3. Lisa Sclafani on October 7, 2023 at 9:16 pm

    Had a 15 amp Dewalt with 10" blade for I think about 5 or 6 years. Performance was spot on. I gave it to me brother and want (NEED) to buy another so doing my homework cause I’m just a weekend worrier think they call it (ha ha) but when I use it I want it to work and want to feel safe… that in mind and with prices soring, wondering the difference between the 10" blade and 8 1/4 in besides the price? Is is the power? Does it run slower? Does it sound softer? Or is it just the size of wood you can cut easily if it is with a 10" blade. Maybe it is just the smaller blade that makes that saw so much less – like half! Can you tell me cause I’ve looked at many other brands and they all look very cheesy with plastic and aluminum vs steel. Even bad reviews on most.. like Hercules and Craftsman not the same quality as years ago. I need another opinion from someone who knows cause they have experience. Can you help cause I trust DeWalt from experience! Thanks

    Wish I saw this a week ago before getting the rigid. I opted for the rigid because it came with the stand and didn’t need to spend and extra $200+ on a dewalt stand. I have dewalt everything else they make.

  5. jaydev das on October 7, 2023 at 9:18 pm

    Thanks for the great review on comparison, I was looking for buying between rigid and dewalt. This vedio helped me. Cheers!!

  6. AZ57MAN on October 7, 2023 at 9:19 pm

    Perfect timing for me to watch your review. Appreciate the review. Buying Dewalt for sure

  7. NameTaken2 on October 7, 2023 at 9:20 pm

    Did I miss mention of the actual model #’s that you test in this video?

  8. Dylan Nguyen on October 7, 2023 at 9:20 pm

    Going to pick up the Ridgid for $200 on Craigslist tmrw. I think based on your comments this would be decent for me as a beginner hobby woodworker

    I was borrowing a buddies gen 1 Dewalt but it doesn’t have a splitter and only rips to 18”

  9. David Legatt on October 7, 2023 at 9:20 pm

    I was having trouble raising the blade on my Ridgid, I ended up putting the whole saw upside down on my bench and giving it a thorough cleaning. I then put some 3 in 1 oil on the worm gears that raise and lower the blade. Worked fine after that.

  10. Jesus madueno on October 7, 2023 at 9:21 pm

    Ridgid es basura

  11. Rooster Original on October 7, 2023 at 9:21 pm

    So basically the ridgid with stand is totally worth the $399 Home depot is selling it for 😉

  12. Jeffery Wigdahl on October 7, 2023 at 9:22 pm

    Rigid has a lifetime warranty

  13. tony P on October 7, 2023 at 9:23 pm

    Hello. I have had a Ridged 4513 for 8 years now and I am a contractor. I put a 24 tooth Diablo combo blade on it and never had a issue with power. Much more table room, great fence and very portable and lightweight. I also own the Bosch portable but always go back to my Ridged for the ease of use. Thank You

  14. Lisa Sclafani on October 7, 2023 at 9:26 pm

    Oh hey didn’t you know Ridge warrantee’s all there products for life 😉

  15. Cameron MacKinnon on October 7, 2023 at 9:28 pm

    Same exact part on the blade height knob broke on my ridgid. Ended up paying to have it fixed. Also agree about it not having enough power. Bought the new model a few months ago, now instead of the blade height knob, the fence won’t stay locked. You’ve convinced me I need to exchange it for the dewalt

  16. RKO OSCAR on October 7, 2023 at 9:28 pm

    I know the rigid saw is 10 inch. Is the dewalt 8.5 inch blade?

  17. Kristjan Laurmaa on October 7, 2023 at 9:30 pm

    Im just buy a house where we live at the moment. I have some DeWalt tools and looking do buy a saw and I think that DeWalt is the one to buy. Thanks and cool cars as well!

  18. Travis Stewart on October 7, 2023 at 9:30 pm

    Thanks Ryan Reynolds! lol I have a Craftsman table saw and hate it so I wanted to upgrade since I’ve become a more serious wood worker. I have a lot of Dewalt stuff so I guess I’ll keep adding to the collection. Great to the point video.

  19. Joel Salto on October 7, 2023 at 9:32 pm

    It’s nice to see some one almost tripping on random stuff in the garage other than myself.

  20. Nico Luminous on October 7, 2023 at 9:32 pm

    hey thanks for making this video! Sold on the DeWalt!

  21. Joel Salto on October 7, 2023 at 9:34 pm

    Bro you look like Ryan Reynolds

  22. Thomas Chandler on October 7, 2023 at 9:35 pm

    That’s an old Ridgid .. the new one is just like the dewalt

  23. BigBrotherIsTooBig on October 7, 2023 at 9:35 pm

    I have a newer version, R4514 I think. 15 Amp motor and you can run a 6" dado per instructions. I run an 8" stack, just have to take it a bit slower.

  24. Smiley Ionut on October 7, 2023 at 9:39 pm

    You do have to spend some time setting the saw up… blade, fence, etc. But once done, the saw is great. Fairly compact which is Nice https://www.youtube.com/post/UgkxXh-4_3-ZT1fFWP91ZV7iVqzElr0lEb-a I did get an Incra Miter Gauge which takes some setup as well. The stock miter gauge can be adjusted in the miter slot with a little painter’s tape… this tightens up the side to side play a lot.

  25. Carole Warner on October 7, 2023 at 9:43 pm

    You can further extend your Dewalt’s rip capacity up to 32". Read your manual or watch videos on Youtube to find out how.

  26. Espressomatic on October 7, 2023 at 9:44 pm

    I’ve had the Ridgid since 2010 and have used it for a lot of projects, furniture and construction. The Dewalt I’ve been using on-site for 5 years, reno/construction. Take the Ridgid in for repair and they’ll replace the entire saw free – lifetime warranty works well. The new 4514 (which you’ll get in replacement of this one) moves a lot easier and is lower priced – mainly because it has less plastic and you have to assemble it from the smallest pieces. The riving knife and blade guard on the Ridgid is 100x better than on the Dewalt. The Dewalt fence is 100x better than the Ridgid. The older Dewalt is nicer than the one you have, IMO. Putting a dado in a Dewalt is a little silly, IMO. It’s a contractor saw and excels at that.

  27. landyachtz05 on October 7, 2023 at 9:45 pm

    Just picked up a used ridgid 4514 and Iʻve got issues with it. Itʻs a struggle to get the blade square at 90 degrees, the motor is literally pushing up on the underside of the table at that point. Then to bring the blade to 45 degrees, you have to go past the 45 degree mark… meaning that any angle between 0 and 45 is going to be inaccurate. My first experience with jobsite tablesaws, not sure if this is normal or a lemon.

  28. justride on October 7, 2023 at 9:45 pm

    Thanks for the first hand review. Shifting to DeWalt with rollers

  29. JR 3 on October 7, 2023 at 9:46 pm

    I have a brand new ridg🎉id table saw and it came not square to 90 degrees. Nothing I can do can get it plumb to 90. The adjustment is supposed to be an allen bolt, it’s not.
    Can’t use it out of the box new.
    Gonna get that Dewalt.

  30. fred florist on October 7, 2023 at 9:48 pm

    Dado stack tends to be 13/16" max. DWE7491rs does that. I’ve run it, just need to feed it slowly (I dadoed 2x4s). Dado was the must-have item for me. 3HP motor. 15A.

  31. B. Zaluski on October 7, 2023 at 9:51 pm

    I haven’t tried the dewalt, but I found the rigid plenty powerful. I’ve resawn lumber with it, I’ve used a 3/4 inch dado stack on the rigid with no issues. I know it’s personal preference.

  32. Scott B on October 7, 2023 at 9:52 pm

    Great video – It’s nice to see someone compare two products who actually has used them. I’m leaning towards the Dewalt setup (my old tablesaw is a pain in the a$$).

  33. Mike Veselka on October 7, 2023 at 9:53 pm

    I believe the new Ridgid is better than the new DeWalt. I do have this DeWalt and it does have great power but it is the little things that to me put it in second place. Good vid.

  34. Carol Aldrow on October 7, 2023 at 9:53 pm

    Have the Dewalt 7491 with rack fence. if you use the outer pins on fence capacity is 34+ inch!!!

  35. Dave Daniels on October 7, 2023 at 9:54 pm

    I’ve purchased the Dewalt saw plus a free stand on a deal for £450 🇬🇧 . Pricey by 🇺🇸 standards . Easy to set up , excellent tool storage and easily transported . Can’t fault it . 3 year warranty .

  36. LBCAndrew on October 7, 2023 at 9:56 pm

    Price difference is $200 currently.

  37. Scruggs on October 7, 2023 at 9:57 pm

    Thanks for the solid review, appreciate it when someone has used a tool for years and can talk about the pros and cons.

  38. Jim Dolceamore on October 7, 2023 at 9:57 pm

    My Ridgid stopped working after six to seven years of occasional use. I liked the saw until it died. I agree that the motor is underpowered. I’m replacing it with the DeWalt. Hopefully, the motor will last longer.

  39. cold spring on October 7, 2023 at 9:59 pm

    The day DeWalt decided I had to buy a stand to get a 10 inch saw was the day I walked away.

  40. apllDgrapllD on October 7, 2023 at 10:00 pm

    I had that same ridgid for almost 10 yrs loved it then sold it and now I’m kicking myself because the new ones are built like absolute shit!

  41. Gino Asci on October 7, 2023 at 10:01 pm

    don’t know how you lasted five years with that ridgid. i had the r4514 and it was a piece of crap. got the dewalt, so far so good. your review should definitely direct people towards the DeWalt.
    it’s worth it.

  42. Justin C. on October 7, 2023 at 10:01 pm

    Great video. I have the Ridgid now and have had many of the same issues as you. I’ve been trying to find a new one and am leaning towards DeWalt. In my case I’m working out of a garage so dust collection is a big thing. I know jobsite saws are never going to be great but the rigid is REALLY bad. How is DeWalt?

  43. Brett Bell on October 7, 2023 at 10:06 pm

    I have to rigid table saw and it works great for me but not a heavy duty machine at all. If this will be used multiple times a month on dense material definitely go DEWALT. The rigid will bind down on a 2×4

  44. jbaccanalia on October 7, 2023 at 10:08 pm

    Awesome thanks. I’m glad you took the time to make this. It answered all my questions. Now I don’t have to buy a saw I won’t be satisfied with.
    Super helpful.

  45. George Grigorian on October 7, 2023 at 10:10 pm

    thanks! that was very helpful!

  46. Gord Thor on October 7, 2023 at 10:10 pm

    Put a thin kerf 7.25" Diablo blade on the Ridged and it will rip dimensional lumber as fast as you can push it through. Also, much quieter and smoother. It also works great for jobsite finishing cuts. Sure, you will occasionally need to change the blade if you need more depth than 2ish", but you need to do the same (even more often) with ripping or finishing 10" blades. The 7.25 thin kerf is much more versatile for typical jobsite work and totally outperforms in ripping duties and is as good or better with finishing cuts, unless you buy expensive finishing blades. Not to mention the price difference and far less strain on the motor and bearings. Jobsite saws don’t have ridged enough bearings (and everything else) to take advantage of an expensive, heavy 10" finishing blade. Thus in most cases a new cheaper 7.25" Diablo will have far less blade wobble (than a heavy 10" blade) and even outperform with finishing cuts on jobsite saws.

    The DeWalt fence will go out of square too if it gets bumped. Any jobsite saw fence will get knocked out of line if dummies slam a 4×8 sheet of plywood (or anything heavy) against the fence like a battling ram. The only time my Ridged fence got out of square was when butchers at work were using it.

  47. CAHG on October 7, 2023 at 10:10 pm

    The difference between 13 amp to 15 amp is huge when cutting hard wood.I have found that 13 amp bogs down on heavier wood which results in burn marks.Rack and Pinion is far superior where fence movement and accuracy of cuts is concerned.

  48. Patrick Riley on October 7, 2023 at 10:11 pm

    Rigid now has rack and pinion

  49. Old Gray Beard on October 7, 2023 at 10:11 pm

    Your not comparing machines of equal class. The DeWalt DWE7491RS is equal to the Ridgid R4550 or R4560.
