While the Ridgid is a nice and versatile machine it isn’t in the same class with the Jet. With significantly more horsepower, CI top and oil bath gears it is a much heavier duty sander. You just have to decide how much you want to spend. Rikon introduced a similar machine which is cheaper but has shorter spindles IIRC but I have yet to see a review of it. The Jet has been the pick of the litter at its price point for 10 years or so now.
