  • Ridgid please make a PLUNGE SAW WITH TRACK GUIDE

    If you could some how make a plunge system that would rival the makita and dewalt I would be very happy. If Ridgid could get the price for the whole system for $400 it would outsell the rest 5 to one. It should be better than the EZ track and on par with the dewalt.

    $400
    plunge saw ( big enough to cut a 2x4 at 90 degrees and 1" at a 45 degree bevel )
    2 55" guide rails that could be connected
    the proper clamps

    so you want something better than what's already out there but for less money.
    I think you need communicate your desires to www.madeinchina.com

    I have the Dewalt track saw and it works great. It was a little less than the Festool and
    has some features I like over the Festool, and I can say the same for the Festool track saw.

    Festool has two size saws that use the same track as far as I know which is a good idea.
    I think the smaller saw is about $100 less.

    I do wish that DeWalt included the clamps for their track as part of the package, even if
    it meant they bumped the price up by $25.

      As far as I know Ridgid is made in China.........

      12-Amp 6-1/2 in. Plunge Circular Saw with 55 in. Guide Rail and Case-SP6000K1 at The Home Depot

      Makita plunge saw and 55" track comes in at $400.
      About $470 with an extra 55" rail and a couple clamps (ebay)

      I just think that if Ridgid could come in less than the Makita I would sell a lot of units.
