  • Dewalt 746X vs Ridgid 2424 or 3612??

    I really need a table saw for my shop, and have the unique opportunity to get a brand new Dewalt 746X for an unbelievably good price. However, I have been very impressed with everything I have read about Ridgid and particularly like the lifetime warranty (I also recently purchased a TP1300 and JP0610 and have been extremely pleased with both). I was wondering if anyone has any personal experience with the Dewalt 746X and could make a knowledgeable and honest assessment of it's features and performance as compared to either of the Ridgid saws??

    I have had the luck to set up and use a dewalt 746x tablesaw and a ridgid ts2424. I like the dewalt for the bigger motor, but that it. I like the ridgid for the easy of assembally(sp), and the cost. If you need more info drop Private Message.

      It is hard to imagine an easier to assemble contractor's saw than a DW746. The saw is already assembled including base, you need only attach wings, fence, and guard.

      Rooster, if you could get the 746 for the same price as a TS3612, -AND- your great deal comes with a warranty, I would recommend going for it. The warranty is important, DeWalt's first big tool since being a part of Black and Decker has had more than its fair share of birthing pangs, including non-flat tables (real non-flat, not just annoying), and fence problems.

      The 746 will have steel wings instead of cast iron. To make up for this, the motor is mounted in a much better position on the DeWalt than on other contractor's saws. This is a saw where the cradle is not tweaked out of position by the motor hanging out the back.
