Ridgid has a new 10″ jobsite table saw with roller stand as part of Home Depot’s PRO Black Friday 2019 sales event. It’s worth a closer look for anyone looking to buy a new portable table saw this holiday shopping season.
To start off, its design is quite different than previous models.
This is last year’s special model, which was priced at $199 last year.
This is the Ridgid R4513, which I would describe as a mature product. It was featured as a Black Friday deal last year, and in previous years, at $299.
Here’s the new R4514 again. The most striking difference to me is that the new model has a somewhat open chassis structure, with no plastic paneling on two sides of the saw’s roll cage frame.
The next biggest observation is that the fence rails extend beyond the table top surface, and by quite a bit. This gives you greater rip capacity without having to make the entire saw physically larger. I don’t quite know how I feel about this. I’m the kind of person that will snag extended parts, but I guess it should be fine. This probably isn’t the best saw to toss in the back of a pickup truck, at least unsupported, since other items might slide into the protruding rails.
- 10″ blade
- 5000 RPM motor
- Maximum cutting depth of 3-1/2″ at 90°, 2-1/4″ at 45°
- Rip capacity: 30″ right, 12″ left
- 6ft power cord

Other Table Saw Deals to Consider
The Dewalt DW745S 10″ jobsite table saw is smaller, but personally I like that it’s a more traditional design. Dewalt’s fences are also quite superbly easy to adjust.
