I could account to the many times I’ve needed a table rip saw. I’m pro-RYOBI because I believe in the product and for the price, you won’t miss a heart beat! I’ve spoken to all types of associates in HOME DEPOT and LOWES and they all prefer Dewalt or Makita. I come with little funds and prefer RYOBI.Why? Price. Reliability. Proven. I’ve used Ryobi for all of my projects. I’ve only had the reciprocating saw fail on me (wall unit and not the battery powered). It was partially my fault. Okay, maybe not. Ryobi needs to improve on their reciprocating saw units because they damn right suck. I had to go to Wal-Mart and purchase a Black & Decker one. I’ve put it through so much abuse it’s literally funny.

Anywho back on subject. I have a handheld 7inch circular saw- also Ryobi but any handheld saw isn’t that smooth and accurate and I really wanted a table saw that was portable. I’m going to be purchasing the portable unit Ryobi has at Home Depot. I simply can’t wait to get my hands on one.
