Ridgid now has its version of a granite-top table saw on the market. With the motor mounted inside the cabinet and the saw powered from a 110-volt circuit, the Ridgid R4611 saw is considered a hybrid saw.

Features on this saw are numerous. There’s an integrated guard assembly including a spreader, anti-kickback pawls and blade guard. This assembly travels with the saw blade. It is not, however, a riving knife. It’s not possible to remove the blade cover or antikickback pawls without removing the splitter, so any non-through cuts require a complete assembly removal.
