  • RIDGID PRESS RELEASE - UPDATED 10" HEAVY DUTY PORTABLE TABLE SAW

    Bob passed me a couple of press releases to pass on to you guys. Here's one on the RIDGID TS2400LS.

    10" Heavy Duty Portable Table Saw
     Work-N-Haul It™ 2-wheeled cart
     15 Amp direct drive universal motor
     25” rip capacity with self-aligning fence and micro-adjust
     Up front single location bevel/height adjustment


    RIDGID® power tools today introduced significant enhancements to its 10" Portable Table Saw (Model TS2400LS) combining maximum mobility with high performance features to meet the needs of the most demanding professional contractors.

    The TS2400LS includes the Work-N-Haul It™ 2-wheel cart, which gives the saw total portability. The cart, which comes preassembled to the saw, sets up and folds down in seconds and can be stored in a space-saving upright position. When the tool is stationary, the cart provides a stable work platform. When folded during transport, the rugged rubber wheels help the unit easily traverse rough ground.

    “RIDGID recognizes the fact that professionals are looking for outstanding performance in a table saw, but they demand mobility too. The TS2400LS was designed to address all of their needs,” said Jeff Drake, spokesperson for RIDGID.

    The saw features a 15 Amp, 4000 rpm direct drive universal motor that provides heavy-duty power. The motor has both soft start and overload reset mechanisms for protection and longer motor life.

    The self-aligning, front and rear locking fence maintains rip accuracy. The sliding table and rail construction allows for 25 inches of rip capacity to the right of the blade and 12 inches to the left. The sliding right hand table provides maximum work support in any rip position, and the Retract-A-Rip™ scale maintains rip scale accuracy regardless of the sliding rail’s position. The fence also includes a built-in micro adjust mechanism for precise, fine tuned rip settings.

    The single location bevel/height adjustment mechanism features precise, rack and pinion bevel and locks for elevation and bevel to ensure that any adjustments are quick and secure. A “T” slot miter gauge and slots have been added to provide more support during crosscutting of wider stock.

    The saw provides on-board storage for the miter gage, rip fence, extra blades, blade changing wrenches, cord and blade guard so that everything the contractor needs is always close at hand. A quick-change/reinstall tool-free blade guard is another standard feature. To keep the work site clean, the saw’s 2 1/2" dust port easily attaches to standard wet/dry vac hoses.

    RIDGID® power tools are designed to serve the needs of professional contractors and woodworkers, who demand maximum power and superior durability. Packed with high-performance features, RIDGID power tools enhance productivity, enabling professionals to accomplish work more quickly, accurately and with less effort. Robust materials and rigorous engineering maximize the tools' power, heighten user comfort, and promote longer tool life.

      Thanks for the info Norm. Sounds like it might be a great upgrade for my TS2424. The TEFC, Height Lock, and T Slot are the biggest issues that I have. However, due to all of the changes that have gone on recently, I think I'll wait until some reviews start coming out in WW magazines.

      Any idea when we might start seeing these in Home Depot?
