I have been following the threads on the R4511 and was waiting for Black Friday discounts. Went into HD on Sunday and the saw was marked at $499 usually it is $599. I figured it was a mistake but it wasn't. It isn't marked as being on sale or anything. I spoke to the store manager who said if there are any additional markdowns or promotions for Black Friday he would honor them on the saw. Picking the beast up tonight.
PS. I first noticed the price of $499 in the Salem NH store but purchased it at the Plaistow store.
I have some reading in front of me for the assembly and adjustment.
