Ridgid R4510 Heavy Duty Portable Table Saw Review

Ridgid R4510 Table Saw

Today my dad asked me to help him with some renovations around the house.Since this will be the first time doing a project like this,we don’t have any of the tools needed.We want to remove the carpet and add laminate flooring, re-tile the bathroom, change all baseboards and put in crown moldings on the main floor.We managed to borrow most items from friends: a tile cutter and a nail gun with compressor but we weren’t able to find someone with a table saw. 

Since a good table saw should last us a long time, we decided to buy one so we will have it for future projects that we decide to do.Since I’m the type of person not to just go to the store and buy any table saw that I see,I decided to do some research first. And since I’ve done all this research I thought I would share it with everyone.

What to Look For When Buying a Table Saw?

Ridgid R4510 Heavy-Duty Portable Table Saw
Below I will talk about a few things that I was looking for in a table saw. One of the main things was the power of the motor, the ability to do large and small jobs with the same table saw, the convenience and portability, quick and easy setup, and if the saw had room to store items that I would be using each time I used the table saw.

Ridgid R4510 Heavy Duty Portable Table Saw’s Powerful Motor

With a heavy duty 15 amp motor,the Ridgid R4510 Heavy-Duty Portable Table Saw was more than enough saw for our home renovation needs. But perhaps you need the Ridgid R4510 Heavy-Duty Portable Table Saw for more than cutting baseboards and laminate flooring like we do. Well don’t you worry! This powerful 15 amp table saw will cut through actual hardwood or even pressure treated lumber with ease. 

This unit is also equipped with soft start,which provides the table saw with very smooth starting that will increase the life of your motor and it will eliminate tripping the breaker. Another convenient feature is a really large on and off switch that you will find within seconds each and every time.

The Ridgid R4510 Portable Table Saw includes an extendable rail and table, that retracts up to 25”. This system is called a rip fence. The rip fence gives you the accuracy and capacity that you’ll need for all jobs big and small. You can also micro adjust the rip fence for those really small and accurate measurements that you’ll need to make. When you are done, the on-board storage will conveniently store the rip fence, a great feature for transporting your portable table saw. The on-board storage will also hold:

  • Miter gauge
  • Blade guard assembly
  • Extra blades
  • Power cord
  • And the 25” rip fence as mentioned above 
There is also an accessory storage that is great for smaller items like:

  • Pencils/markers
  • Tape measures
  • Levels
  • Or anything small like the above items 

An All-in-One Table Saw,the Ridgid R4510 Heavy-Duty Portable Table Saw

Since we are doing a multitude of cuts and angles we wanted a table saw that would do it all. We didn’t want to buy a miter saw and a table saw so we looked for a saw that could handles the roll of multiple saws.The Ridgid R4510 Heavy-Duty Portable Table Saw comes with miter gauge that will help you cross cut woods at specific angles. The miter gauge will make angled cuts from 30 – 90 degrees, these types of cuts are called miter cuts.

The miter gauge also helps stabilize the wood into place so you won’t have to dangerously hold the wood as you’re cutting it.This accessory alone will save us $100s because now we won’t have to purchase a miter saw. HUGE benefit!!!

This was one of the options that I really liked. Every time that I needed to cut something using my old hand saw or circular saw, I would take the saw and the material outside so I wouldn’t make a mess in the garage on my workbench.But now the Ridgid R4510 Table Saw comes equipped with a 2 ½” dust posts so I no longer have to take my work outside. 

The convenient dust post allows a standard shop vacuum connection that will keep the work area clean. It will suck up all the sawdust on the table saw surface and around the blade keeping your workspace neat and tidy.This is a small feature, but a really smart one to have.
