I bought this saw to do light work like cutting down plywood and MDF for small projects around the house. Yesterday while working on my latest project the saw started to make a terrible grinding noise. I took the motor apart and found that the small gear they use to knock down the power was stripped out. Now they want over a hundred and fourty dollars for the part to replace the Armature assembly. Seem's crazy that such a small piece could cost almost half of what the whole saw was new. My recommendation is that you look somewhere and spend a little bit more money on a quality saw. Learn from my mistake and do not buy this saw. It broke after very light use, I would hate to see how quickly it falls apart if you use it on a regular basis.
In short, my problems were the same as others who have left feedback. The bevel has a design flaw as every time I set it to Zero I turned on the saw and it would just to five degrees or more. You have to either keep the saw running or tilt the blade back to zero after turning it on - your call. I think the value is probably good if they fix the issue of this poorly built "switch" or "lever" I am not sure what to call it but if you go to the store they are all the same while other saws actually screw down or tighten using your strength. This model just locks in and then skips when the saw starts. I am no craftsman although even light work proved to be too much for this saw. I would pass.
The product does not maintain a perpendicular 90 degree angle. You have to continuously realign saw blade to achieve whatever angle you want. The miter sled does not accommodate most jobs. When I contacted customer service about a problem I experienced, they gave me a form response, stated that this was not a problem they experienced in the lab, and blew me off. I WILL NEVER BUY RYOBI AGAIN. Every time I contact customer service, even when a product is under warranty, they are useless.
Cons: Not Durable, Limited Features, poor customer service, inaccurate
Bought the saw and took home. There was no manual and the switch key was missing. It appeared to be factory sealed. Called the 800 number and they assured me they were sending me one. Two weeks later and no switch key. Called 800 number again, this lady related that they did not have that key and would have to order me one. I related my dissatisfaction, to which she appeared to not care. Contacted them via Internet, and was told he would send me one, I told him to never mind at this point that I would just return it and buy a Dewalt saw instead. He related that " you are welcome". Which I took as a smart--- comment. I will never deal with Ryobi again. And I will have to second guess stopping at Home Depot again.
Bevel Locking Lever Washer Broke During First Use.
PostedJuly 28, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
Got this as a gift on July 25, 2012. Put it together on July 26, 2012. Saw went together nicely as there are very few parts to assemble. Plugged the saw in to make sure it ran and checked the bevel (after removing the foam support). Everything seemed fine and the saw was acceptable.
Today, July 28, 2012 I actually went to use the saw. When I unlocked the bevel locking lever, I heard a snap and felt the washer break. The washer fell out in two pieces under the saw.
The lock washer needs to be made of a different material. It should not have broken. I have yet to even cut anything on the saw. I was just setting things up to make my first cut.
I believe the saw has potential, but when one of the main features of the saw breaks before you even get a chance to cut anything with it, I am not sure how good a product it is. From other reviews, this appears to be a big issue.
Without this washer, the motor/blade freely moves in the saw as it cannot be locked into position.
Cons: Not Durable, broke the first time i went to use it.
Here's the fly in the ointment--the slots in the table are what Ryobi calls "T-slots." They have the equivalent of balloon sides. So the bottom measurement is larger than halfway up the slot. Ryobi gives you a fence and miter gauge with a metal "slide" to go in the a slot. The slide has a washer-like piece mounted on the bottom of the slide.
What this means is that the slides have a good 1/8" of instability to them--in some cases it can go to almost a quarter of an inch. I bought an expensive miter gauge/fence with the mandatory T-slot slide on it. It too is not very reliable--anything will wobble in those T-slots.
Okay, so you want to make yourself a nice cross-cut sled for this saw? Good luck! The slides will have to be impossibly thin to fit underneath the bulging sides of the slots. Now, try to counter-sink any fasteners in them. Obviously, even hard wood slides will not be stout enough. One might be able to buy a couple of T-slot slides and attach them to a cross-cut sled, but honestly, it's a whole lot of extra work that could be avoided if you will just acquire a table saw without the danged T-slots in the first place!
Three stars for the T-slots, and the crummy 24 tooth saw blade it comes with. You have to go out and buy a decent saw blade right off the bat.
As far as the saw motor and frame, mine has held up well for several years now. But you do want accurate cuts, and this saw makes that very difficult to accomplish.
it would be even better if there was some sort of pouch located on underside of saw cabinet to hold the blade guard and anti-kick guard when transporting the saw. This would lessen the chance of them being damaged when tranporting the portable saw.
This is my second ryobi table saw. I upgraded to this model after about 5 years of using the cheaper one. The cheaper one I actually gave to a buddy who was getting into wood working. This saw is strong and great for on site jobs. I am a dyi guy but I hd taken a contract to build cabinets, walls and finishing touches for a shop. This saw was great. Mobility to the site was easy along with set up was quick and easy. Other contractors commented on how it was perfect for the job. It was like having the workshop on site. The adjustments are durable and easy to use. Great saw.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight
I laughed when this saw was dropped off at the job site. However, to my surprise I have ripped a lot of 2 x 8's and 2 x 6's on it and have not had any problems... very impressed. It is light, so when ripping green wood (treated), go slow and do not push as hard as it is a light saw, but works well with a good blade. For the price cannot be beat. Use it more than the other work saws on the site as I can fold it and move it easily to where I am working.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
I had the table saw now for a good 3 years and I've done many projects with it, from Cabinets to work benches, fences to yard furniture. Now I'm working on a custom walk in closet with shelving and cabinets. My only grip with this toy is that the saw blade has a tendency to not hold tight and when in use it tilts. I'm used to it now so I am constantly checking it and tightening the lock on the tilt. Also I would like to get different plates for it that go on the table when I switch to using the dato blades.
All in all I must be one of those lucky ones that so far is not having any trouble with it that can't be delt with. Hope this helps.
Pros: Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight
Cons: Limited Features

Review 11 for 10 in. Table Saw with Wheeled Stand
from Faifax, VA
I Wish I Had Bought a Different Saw
PostedFebruary 24, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought the Craftsman version of this saw about 6 years ago. I didn't know much about table saws at the time and didn't realize how a non-standard configuration would limit usability. For simple rip cuts and some cross-cuts this is a great saw for the money. But the built-in cross-cut sled makes it very difficult to develop jigs for specialized cuts - like box joints or a two-sided miter sled. Even using a featherboard is awkward. A table saw with two miter slots will out-perform this saw when it comes to special purpose jigs. It is simply not a saw for a pro or a serious hobbiest.
Otherwise, it has exellent rip capacity for it's size, and pretty decent dust collection. Cutting power is OK for its class - use a thin kerf blade. Dado capacity is limited to 6" blade at 5/8 width.
Pros: Accurate, Good Size & Weight
Cons: Limited Features, no miter slots, awkward to switch between rip & crosscut
I bought the saw on Saturday afternoon after looking thru saws at Lowes, Sears, & HomeDepot. I returned the saw to HomeDepot on Sunday afternoon. I ripped (non-thru) about 6 pieces of wood & was worried. The saw kept enough power to not stall, but had an extremely horrible vibration noise. Then on the last piece when I decided it had failed the test, the bevel lock would not keep the blade at 90deg while cutting & it ruined half of that piece of wood before I realized what had happened. The next morning I decided to change the 36 tooth blade to a 24 tooth ripping blade. I could not break the nut loose holding the factory blade. I actually broke the arbor wrench trying. I was disappointed because I liked the overal features & portable stand. I returned it to the store & I'm still debating whether to keep baby'ing our old Craftsman.
Pros: Easy to Use, All In One, Good Size & Weight, Powerful
The other reviews about the bevel moving on start up. Mine was the same, on the back side of the lock lever is the nut too tighten it three quarters of a turn and all is well. Saw performs very well, rips 2" hardwood with ease. Stock blade performs very well also. over all great saw.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight
I've owned my table saw for about two years now. I've ripped hundreds of feet of wood with no problems. I'm about to buy another one for a second location. May not be a tough as some $$$$ saws but for the home worker or handy man its great. I haven't had any problems with it.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight
Bought this saw 2 years ago and I've used it to remodel most of our home. What can I say? It does everything I need it to do. Everything still works. Nothing has ever broken. The cuts seem to be accurate.
I'm just a YouTube trained, DIY'er. I'm sure it gets only light-duty use, but $299 is a light-duty price. I'm satisfied. No complaints.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight
Great Product. Assembly was kind of tricky. Manual missing some explanations. No Dado plate, and product number was wrong so I had to do some looking to find the plate, relatively cheap once found. 8'x4' kind of a tricky cut with RFB. Bevel and Miter cuts work great. I don't like the flimsy way the Finger Guard attaches. It has too much give in my opinion. Otherwise, it's a great saw for the value. I like the fact that I can wheel it around from site to site.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Durable, Powerful, Light Weight, Portable, cuts great
Cons: no dado plate included plate # wrong in manual, poor instuctions, assembly somewhat tricky, poor and flimsy finger guard.
Bought this saw and put it together was a breeze. Tried it out making a bookshelf headboard. It cuts was accurate right out of the box. It takes so getting used to the miter attachment but once figured it out worked great. Just which it came with a clamp to hold the longer boards down. Only problem was the leveling blade came lose once. Was afraid to tighten it down to much because it was made from plastic. The motor takes right off wished it came on a little slower before full speed. Overall so far so good.
I have had this saw well over a year now. It is better than any other table saw I have ever had and I have had a few. I wrote a review right after I 1st used it but think it time to write another. I am not a contractor just a DIYer. But I have used this saw a lot on some pretty intricate projects for myself and others including multiple compound angles. Yes, there is such a thing. For me it has worked flawlessly. I have had none of the problems others have mentioned. The miter tends be a little loose & hangs up at one spot so I just took a file and beveled the leading edges on the guide bar & it now works smooth. I have limited space and am thrilled at how compact it folds. I have bad vertebrae in my neck and need to be very careful so I am very pleased that the legs fold & unfold so easily. No strain at all. The motor has never overheated or stopped on me but then I do not push the stock hard. I just let the saw do it's work and use the proper blade. You can hear if you are pushing too hard & straining the motor. If you must jamb wood through the saw fast then you need a 5 HP saw. No question about it. Accuracy depends on a lot of things. Skill, blades and set up ingenuity. Treat it carefully unpacking & setting up. You cannot ram & slam any tool around and expect it to work well. Just take your time and think ahead and never hurry or rush. You cannot expect cabinet maker quality unless you are willing to spend considerably more money. For my money this has been a super little saw.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Long-Lasting
I bought this unit because I needed a saw that could be easily folded up and put away in the corner of the garage. The assembly was very easy, the saw itself was very accurate in terms of cutting angles and required very little alignment
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, All In One, Accurate
