Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Well made, excellent accessories and options, easy set up and storage, safe, safe and safe!
Cons:Taller table height, more expensive, poor dust collection bag design, limited warranty.
The Bottom Line: It would be a difficult decision if Ridgid had more accessories and was safer because I liked its height, cost, and warranty. Bosch just has too much going for it.
I researched as much as I could find about portable table saws before I settled on the more expensive Bosch 4100-09 over the Ridgid TS2400LS. Because of limited space, I needed a saw that I could store in a small space and yet set up very easily. The Bosch won out over the Ridgid because of safety with its Smart Guard system and easier access to on/off switch. In addition, the Bosch had much more accessories available and the Ridgid had very limited options. However, the Ridgid has a limited lifetime warranty whereas the Bosch is a year. The Bosch was on sale at Lowes for $509 and the Ridgid was $449 at Home Depot. The Bosch non-digital rip fence should suffice for my furniture making and I like having the option to buy the digital carriage readout later on.

The Bosch is replacing a 15 amp Skilsaw tabletop saw on a stand with a Forest blade which cuts accurately but the Skilsaw has the smaller miter slots, limited dado blade options, and a flimsy fence. I managed to make a mission style captain's bed with drawers and a trundle out of quarter sawn white oak with the Skilsaw but it took me longer without having access to a decent crosscut sled, tenon jig or a accurate miter gauge that I can now construct for this table.
Adjustment directions for accurate 90 degree cuts and fence measurements were easy to follow and accomplish. The accessories available are: rear out feed support, left side out feed support, dust bag, zero clearance insert, dado insert set, pusher guide system, molding insert, blade tote, digital carriage. The instruction/safety manual was easy to read and follow with excellent tips on crosscutting, bevel cutting, mitering, rabbeting, etc.
The gravity rise stand took 30 minutes to put together and 5 more minutes to anchor the saw. The saw unfolded easily and felt very solid as the stand seemed to weigh more than the saw itself. I do not plan to transport the saw around for offsite jobs but I know that it could be done very easily without too much strain. It fit nicely in the back of my Tahoe and rolled out easily on a make shift ramp or it could be easily lifted out with assistance from the little woman.
