I was skeptical
5 Star Review   By lillwaynee78 on Home Depot - Feb 24, 2013   

I read a lot of reviews on this tile saw and some of them were not too good. I almost didn’t buy the saw because of the reviews. Tile is what I do for a living so I need a good saw. I am disappointed with all the bad reviews I read because they were all wrong. The saw is not under powered you just have to set the blade down low enough. I have used the saw on 18” tiles and it cut them straight. Ridgid should give you a better blade because the blade they give you will chip the tile a little so buy a good blade when you buy the saw. The saw is very portable with the wheels right on the stand. If you are looking for a good tile saw this is the one to buy. Slowly all of my tools are changing to Ridgid. Lifetime service agreement how can you beat that? Keep up the good work Ridgid!!!!

Great saw, performed just as advertised
5 Star Review   By BuiltByJ on Home Depot - Feb 2, 2013   

I just recently purchased this saw since my last saw of different brand finally quit after 10 yrs. I put it together in about 15 mins just looking at the box. I just finished 900 sq ft of tile with base made from same tile so many, many cuts. This saw has worked as good as any stand saws. I saw some reviews said the blade wobbled, the only time I noticed anything close to that was when cutting a very small amount (less than 1/8). You have to go very slow or the blade will kick out and offline. But you would with most any saw with thin blade. Also yes its a bit messy. The plastic guard to catch water behind the saw drips where it flows into main catch under saw. I fabricated a simple drip edge from metal flashing and problem solved. I also know if cutting with water it will be messy to some extent, if you want to stay clean have someone else do it. For the most part cut outside with nothing directly behind saw if poss. The laser worked just fine on mine, cuts just on left edge of laser. Bottom line if you want a tool to do it all for you good luck, you have to adapt to exactly how it performs. I would gladly make this purchase again. I also purchased an additional rigid segmented blade. Did entire floor on original blade and still cutting great. Water delivery seems fine too. If you get this saw make sure you pop off front of pump each time you change the water and clean the foam screen out, although ryobi universal pump is only 17 bucks, Rigid is 29.

Blades too large for cooling, excessive vibration
2 Star Review   By Mark on Home Depot - Jan 7, 2013   

Does handle larger tiles easily. The cuts on porcelain have a tendency to chip along the cut (and this was after purchasing and installing two different Ridgid blades.) I also tried using a blade stiffner for a period of time. The water jets on the blade do not cool evenly causing the blade to warp and wobble. May work differently on ceramic tile.

Rated a Dissappointing Almost
2 Star Review   By BHnWV on Home Depot - Dec 21, 2012   

I tried 2 tile saws before this one. The R4010 is hands down the best design. The integral stand is handy for support and transport. I agree with other reviewers that the tubing is thin walled, but it is adequate and light weight. I was concerned about the reviews indicating rust and sprayed WD40 in each tube as I assembled. Eighteen months later and no rust on the stand. The freshwater delivery system is great. Never used the pump, so can't rate that. However, I would agree wholeheartedly with other reviewers that the water delivery system is just cheap - all plastic. The hose-coupling/shutoff-valve broke the second time I used the saw. I picked this saw over the DeWalt DW24000 because of price. Add $40.00 to the price of the Ridgid for a ball valve, hose coupling, and brackets beefy enough to support a garden hose, and you're a bit closer to the cost of the DeWalt. The laser is handy. My first job was a diagonal pattern. The laser is great for quickly cutting corner to corner on tile that will be covered by baseboard. If it has to be precise, mark and cut the mark. I wouldn't buy this saw because of the laser, but it's a nice feature. I also would not buy it because of "Lifetime" parts. It took almost a year just to get the saw registered. It also takes months to get parts, and I've needed too many of them. My local repair center just dropped Ridgid because of slow service and poor quality parts. I also agree the instructions are small and bad. A contractor should not even think about this saw. A busy DIY guy like me will be frustrated. It's a great design and a lot to like, but poor quality. Ridgid almost has a great saw and easily could, but until they improve the quality, I would buy the DeWalt!

Overpriced, cheap materials
1 Star Review   By Tileinstaller on Home Depot - Sep 1, 2012   

Rusts, doesn't cut straight. Good idea, bad execution.

After some hands on time with this machine it was obvious its not even close to the caliber equipment my work requires.
1 Star Review   By MarkB on Home Depot - Aug 21, 2012   

This machine is poorly built to say the least which was such a disappointment being that I own many Ridgid products of which I have been very happy with. Yes I am aware that the product has a LSA (Lifetime Service Agreement) but that means nothing if the saw must be sent off for repair often. The best warranty is the one that is never needed... Now I am a professional and demand the highest quality equipment so a home owner trying to tackle a small home project may find it to work well but for the true professional I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SAW. After searching for many years and trying many different brands and types of wet saws I did manage to find what I believe to be the best over all saws on the market which are made by IMER USA. I currently own a few of them and most often use my IMER Combi 1000/250 Lite. I love these saws as they are the most accurate that I have found and the absolutely most dependable time and time again... They are made right here in the good old USA and they have a standard warranty but you will not need it. My first IMER Combi 250VA that I bought over 10 years ago still works strong today and for the smaller projects I still use it. Ridgid really dropped the ball on this one, they had some decent ideas but horrible execution they really let me down with this product.

Almost great
4 Star Review   By Wooz on Home Depot - May 23, 2012   

I am a professional tile setter with 12 years experience. I have owned many different tile saws from MK, Target, Orion, and DeWalt. With that said I have not found the perfect saw yet. Below are the pros and cons I have experienced so far with the Ridgid. Cons: 1. Instructions are absolute garbage!! 2. Valves seam pretty weak. ( they actually give you an extra one just in-case) 3. Saw seams to leak very easily at the rear of the catch pan. 4. Not quite the quality of the Target, or the DeWalt, but not terrible either. 5. Takes up a lot of space in the tool trailer. Pros: 1. Separate water pump switch a nice feature. 2. Easy transport and set-up very nice feature. 3. Water catch bucket is a great feature. Final verdict: This saw has some good features with some areas of quality concerns. If the quality was a little better this would be a great saw. I like this saw and for $700 it is pretty hard to beat. I just hope it last.

This saw has all the right stuff
5 Star Review   By Kornstock on Home Depot - May 19, 2012   

The only problem is trying to assemble the saw. After an hour or so, the two of us gave up on the instructions, a small, one page copy of the parts that just seamed to blend together much like a maze and used the picture on the box. The saw on the other hand was excellent. It cut porcelain like butter. The cut was straight and without chipping. The laser makes childs-play out of lining up the cut. The water system is way beyond anything I have seen before. You can use a garden hose, or use the pump. After cutting you can switch to the cleaning hose to clear off the tray. The water catch pan filters the water before returning it to a sump. There is a handy box on the side to hold tiles and/or the miter gauge. This is one well thought out saw.

Poor Quality
2 Star Review   By Jeff on Home Depot - Nov 26, 2011   

Better set aside a few hours to put this saw together. Then, don't depend on the water pump and valves. The only way to get it to work is to hook up a garden hose. Real garbage design. The laser is useless.

May as well flush your money down the toilet.
1 Star Review   By Bigham on Home Depot - Nov 1, 2011   

Cant decide what is more worthless the saw or the customer service. I have had many issues with the saw. 1. Stand started rusting after a couple of months. Was told by ridged that every time it gets wet it needs to be towel dried. 2. Plastic hoses and fitting are junk. the valve broke and i am no longer able to cut tile inside because it leaks everywhere. Was told to take it to service center and they will look at and and within a couple of weeks they will get me the parts. I don't have a couple of weeks to sit on my thumbs and wait. 3. DO NOT count on the laser. its not accurate and unless you are cutting in the dark you cant see it. This saw is so bad even Home Depot wont rent it from their tool center. They rent MK. Buy a MK you can actually cut tile with it.

Impressed to pile of junk
1 Star Review   By STILEs on Home Depot - Oct 29, 2011   

After about the first month of having this saw, became many issues. I have only had the saw for 8 months now, and already switched to DeWalt. I am a moderately busy Tile Installer and haul the saw in a trailer. Once at job site, i pull it out and set up right by trailer. So it does not go through any RIGEROUS demands. Highly unimpressed and have already switched to DeWalt. Oh and its virtually impossible to get any warrenty service at no charge. Pros: works good once set up....and for a month Cons: Set up is a pain, too many disassebled parts and terrible diagram of instructions - Exact line laser is a joke - once it gets wet it doesnt work (hmmm, wet saw?) - light on it is nice at first, but fills up with tile dust and eventually stops working - frame is poorly built, which the frame is most important to a straight cut - welds on both sides of the wheels broke off

Assembly Instructions? Hardly...
4 Star Review   By Bhuffy on Home Depot - Oct 17, 2011   

When you open the box, you'll discover a lot of tubing in need of proper orientation to connect the pieces properly. The assembly pages of the manual, are little more than a tiny picture of the parts "exploded" and some bullet points on the facing page as if to suggest that you might consider assembly in this order. It took me half an hour to orient myself to the parts in association to the picture as there was no parts page to label the part and give its dimensions (2 inch hex bolt, or 4 inch carriage bolt) and a one-to-one picture to bolt comparision, which I always find helpful in sorting the screws and bolts into piles. Good luck with assembly and give yourself an hour to put it together with the existing assembly guide.

Design Flaws Need Correcting
1 Star Review   By TheFixer on Home Depot - Sep 2, 2011   

Let me start by saying that I am an owner of a number of Ridgid tools. I continue to purchase them because they are a quality product that beats the price point of the competition, and they have a strong warranty. This saw was a big disappointment. I returned it without ever cutting a tile because the water spray did not hit the blade. I called Ridgid technical support before returning it to see if there was a spray adjustment that I was missing, and I was informed that there was not. I'm an engineer and could have probably figured out a fix to the issue, but why spend almost $700 and then have to fix issues? I have since read that mine was not an isolated issue. (Note: Ridgid did offer to have me return the saw for them to replace the head to fix the problem.) Another factor in my decision to return the saw was with the stand. The folding stand is neat (although the assembly directions are horrible), but I question its longevity. The tubing is very thin wall and although it is powder coated on the outside that doesn't prevent the tubing from rusting out from the inside. The saw assembly bolts directly to the stand so when the stand rusts out (and it will) you will be left figuring out how to attach the saw to a standard stand. Since returning the saw I have ordered a Dewalt 2400S. It is costing me another $150 but as a long term investment I think it will be money well spent.

Happy with it, some suggestions though
4 Star Review   By Pierre on Home Depot - Jul 12, 2011   

I bought this saw 1 month ago, and already I cut like 10 yards of granite and 20 yards of tile. Pros: - Very powerful motor, nice break feature. - Laser is helpful for out of square cuts, but not totally necessary. You can just align pencil mark with the blade - The miter is very good with pre-set angles 0/22.5/45 - Bevel head is great for stone but useless for tile (you don't want to cut below the glaze) - No problem with the water pump and original blade, they are good spec. - Assembly was OK, it helps to have matching letters on the different part holes. Suggestion: - The water is dripping from the back extension tray to the main tray, a 1/4" longer would have solve that. - Idem for the lateral extension tray Overall I am very happy with the saw and would recommend it.

Tile saw
4 Star Review   By Buckycorp on Home Depot - Sep 10, 2010   

Instructions for assembly need much improvement. Must upgrade to a premium blade for production cuts however saw has plenty of power & makes true cuts. Suggested improvements 4" depth cut (pavers 4" X 8"), longer cleaning nozzle tube & optional lock pin to hold saw down (power of saw over rides clamp stop).

Ridgid Tile Saw

Overall this saw is great and has many nice features. Like others assembly was slightly a pain due to the lack of instructions. Saw blade was horrible but bought a new one and it worked great. Overall a great saw.

10" Rigid Tile Saw
2 Star Review   By MidWestTile on Home Depot - Nov 22, 2009   

I am a tile contractor. I bought this saw because it would cut 18" tiles diagonally. This saw is pretty much for light duty use. The bad things are (#1) The assembly instructions were horrible.(#2) The collector for all the hoses for the pump, filter, etc. was useless. It clogged up on the 1st job I put it on. I ended up bypassing all that and running the pump hose directly to the motor. (#3) The blade that came with it was not good quality. (#4) The laser is not accurate making it useless. (#5) The arm that the motor bolts on to will bend slightly when cutting harder tiles such as porcelain or granite. This makes for a crooked or curved cut. I can grab the handle on the motor and bend the motor arm without much effort. (#6) The tubular stand is starting to rust after 3 months of use because it gets water inside the tubes. This is about all the bad things so far. The good things are (#1) The light weight. (#2) The quick stop blade after you stop the saw. Maybe I just got a lemon. All my other Rigid tools are great, but this tile saw was a real dissapointment. If you are a tile contractor, you should NOT buy this saw. Get a Dewalt tile saw....that is what I should have done. Thankyou, Mark

Very good saw
5 Star Review   By RickBe on Home Depot - Nov 2, 2009   

Have used it on 4 jobs. Laser feature is VERY accurate. Multiple cuts are consistent. This is the best saw I've had. Hope the long term performance matches the short term. My friend bought one after seeing the ease of use I experienced.

Very Decent Tile Saw
4 Star Review   By deafkid on Home Depot - Oct 7, 2009   

I have had this saw for a few months and it has done pretty well. It is not as heavy as my old MK and I can lift it pretty easy with my small wingspan. I have not really used the laser and the blade is poor in quality as is the material used to make the rip guide (mine cracked and broke while tightening it). The overspray guard is nice and the stand is easy to use. Overall I would say I definitely got what I paid for in this saw.

Its got potential
3 Star Review   By DrePS on Home Depot - Sep 3, 2009   

I am a general contractor and hope this helps out other people. This is my second review as my first didn't get through. This is a good tile saw for a home owner or handy man. Not for a tile contractor. I would recommend the saw to a friend but not to a tile guy. They did put on allot of nice features and accessories. But you don’t need all that stuff. only reason I bought this saw is my target tile saw got stolen and couldn’t afford another one at this time, plus I got half off for opening a new account. It makes this a Great deal. I did like the plunge cuts as I just got doing a tile floor job 12x24 and some mosaic. I like the ease of transport/folding. The saw did a good job for what I needed at this time. Here are things I was not impressed by. Instructions need to have bigger pictures . or just make the book bigger. Not a 5x7. It helps that parts are labeled and put A to A, B to B and so on. But could be better especially on fig.6. The folding stand doesn't lock when fully closed and wants to swing open as the saw is in vertical position while moving, plus it feels little more flimsy compare to my rigid table saw stand. I own a lot of rigid tools. The water tray needs to be bigger and deeper and Maybe have less attachments. I don’t care for the ready rack. its nice but unnecessary. The span deck for mosaic tile does not clamp down all the way down to the trays, And it didn’t hold my mosaic tile. The sliding tray needs to be little wider but deeper for sure. When fully pulled back, the tray wants to move to the left and right moving the point of tile cut in the front. Especially on 24" tile. Maybe adding on an extra set of rollers to the front of the trays would help. The cleaning nozzle is a waste unless you have a garden hose hooked up to it. By then I'll hose everything off. The laser need to have one more laser so there is a line on each side of the blade (for home owners and etc...) honestly, you don’t need a laser. Water jets could spray more water on the blade. When I moved the tile further up from the tray, the blade was dry. The rubber guard in the back got pushed into the blade and got all cut up, was hoping this would have happened later on, not the first time using it. I wish the lock knob was more of a handle like 1/4 turn for fast and secure lock or release. If not TIGHT, the blade will rise up. One thing that I hated was the motor assembly shook sometime, almost like the motor mount was not strong enough. I might be nit picking, but rigid should know these things. Less attachments and accessories , but better build saw and better components. But for a weekend warrior. Its more than what you’ll need.

5 Star Review   By Cowboys on Home Depot - Sep 2, 2009   

The instructions as mentioned by others need a little work. I have to admit I was expecting it to be worse to assemble than it actually turned out to be. It took me around 30 minutes to get it up and running. Once setup, I installed a masonary blade and got ready to cut pavers. The saw cut pavers all day without any problems. Can't wait to try it on some bathroom tile. Another great Ridgid product.

Rigid 10" tile saw
4 Star Review   By JJet on Home Depot - Aug 4, 2009   

The instructions and diagrams to assemble the product are terrible. It took quite a while to assemble as the diagrams were difficult to understand and small and separate from the written instructions. Once assembled, the test on the saw was pretty good. The cuts went fast and were accurate. There was a slight chipping on some of the tiles. Maybe it needs a better blade. Otherwise, this is a good saw for large projects. I liked the discount that Home Depot provided which brought the saw price more in line for a home user. Compliments to Home Depot for the fast and free delivery. I could not believe how fast the delivery was made--just a few days. I think I will be happy with the saw but I will probably buy a better blade.

Great tile saw
5 Star Review   By bobmed on Home Depot - Aug 3, 2009   

I bought this saw after my old tile saw broke. Yes the instructions on assembly leave a lot to be desired. Once you get past that it is great. Easy to set up and take down. I love the plunge cut. I would recommend this tool to anyone and everyuone that needs a good tile saw.

Mostly Great
4 Star Review   By CDog on Home Depot - Aug 1, 2009   

I just purchased this saw to replace / upgrade my Husky 7" saw as my tile experience and projects have outgrown it (Husky still works great though). I am a general contractor but love to jump in on high end tile projects. I had a similar experience to the last review during setup. Worst instructions ever! I too tossed the book aside and spent 3 times longer figuring it out than it should have taken. After installing the water hoses, I realized I had left off the hose clamps. When removing the hoses to add the clamps, one of the nipples broke off the diverter valve, good thing they included an extra valve in the package. My initail frustrations faded as I rolled the saw across some landscaping rock, through the house and down the stairs to the basement we are finishing. The folding legs and big rubber wheels are great and seem very solid. The seperate tray and water system should make clean up very easy. This saw seems to have it all, even a rinse hose. I think the only thing missing is a storage spot for the mosaic clamp and multiple wrenches. I only have one day of use on it but it seems like a great saw and I will post again after using all features a few times. P.S. Dont be too turned off by the setup issues, I wrote this in hopes that it will make its way to Ridgid and improve the setup for others in the future.

Just got one
5 Star Review   By Oakind on Home Depot - Jun 28, 2009   

I bought the Ridgid R4010 and put it together last week. So far so good. Do not let looks hamper your opinion until you actually use the saw, things are not as they “seem”. Here is my opinion. The assembly was a bear because the instructions are HORRIBLE. The assy steps are in the front of the manual, while the accompanying assembly diagrams are in the back of the manual. And to add insult to injury, the assy diagrams are about 1 ½ inches square, you need a magnifying glass to see them. So it is essentially useless and I threw the book aside.. I just used a parts diagram and figured assembly out for myself. Not impressed at all with the instructions. It took about an hour + / - to get it together. Big turnoff. This allowed buyers remorse to set in, but after I used the saw, it all went away. The saw itself is very well thought-out. Ridgid really did their homework on this thing. The stand is a big improvement over the 2000. It’s lightweight, sturdy and is pretty ingenious on how it folds and unfolds, its action is very smoothe and easy. It is one-step and takes about 8 seconds to fold or unfold the saw. Slick. I've been cutting a lot of big 3 CM granite with it, at max capacity, and the stand handles it (size and weight) with no problem. One of the pieces weighed at least 75 pounds. The stand also holds the saw at 2 levels. When the stand is closed, the saw will be held level at knee height, when unfolded, it raises the saw to standing height. I just think that the engineering on the stand is REALLY well done. The new water system works great. It’s a nice improvement over the big tray on the 2000. MUCH more efficient. There is a water bucket and pump that sits under the platform that catches the water and recurculates. Water change-out is a piece of cake. The tray under the cutting area traps a lot of sediment and prevents it from getting in the water bucket reservoir, so the pump filter will stay cleaner longer. I hooked the hose to it and ran fresh water for a lot of cuts, and I kinda like that feature as well. There is also a small hose type thing on the side that you can spray water on your cuts to wash it off, like a mini-hose, before you put the cut piece in the side mounted tile bucket. neat. The extra plastic water guards really surround the right and front of the saw well, and should catch any overspray, but I didn't use them yet. The slider system is very good as well. Easy and accurate. I don't see any true difference from the 2000 as far as support goes, it works well. Now the main issue - POWER... Does it have the power? Yes it does... The physical size of the R4010 saw assembly is a bit smaller than the 2000, but produces the same power. The button layout is a bit different – and the laser button it better well placed. I think the 2000 laser adjustment was easier, but my laser is nuts on. I REALLY like the motor brake, it stops the blade almost immediately, it’s that fast. One anomaly - My saw cut perfectly square out of the box- that never happened before.. But the cuts are pretty much perfect. As I said, so far so good... Overall, I like the R4010 better than the 2000. My main reason is the portably of the unit. The R4010 is just plain easier to move around and setup. The Stand and Water system is a big improvement and makes the unit easy to use. It is quite a few pounds lighter that the 2000. The 2000 looks a lot beefier than the 4010 for sure. But, it’s not the size that matters; it’s how you use it. The R4010 stand is very strong and solid. As I said, I threw a lot of 3 CM granite at it, and it did not buckle the stand or have any power issues. It cut like a hot knife through butter. And the water system makes the saw much easier to use. If you are thinking of getting the Ridgid R4010 Wet Saw, I highly recommend you give it a try. After you get over the initial look of the saw, it does look like a lightweight, you’ll find that the saw is very well engineered, has all the power and accuracy you could need, and, with the new stand and water management system, is a pleasure to setup and use.
