    Save yourself some dough and get the KING KC150-C or the delta equivalent. The king is usally on sale for $389 at www.allinonetools.com, performs just the same as the ridgid without the pretty orange paint.

    Thats all ur paying for, same with dewalt and their pretty yellow.

    A good friend of mine has the older Ridgid. As far as I can tell the new one is just the old one with a new paint job. My friend is very happy with his. He put a mess of teak through it last winter and quite a bit of oak this summer.

    I have the GI 6" with the bed extensions. I'm really happy with it because I like the longer bed but it was a little bit more than the Ridgid.
