Your Ridgid 2400 is a pretty decent portable jobsite saw (not a contractor saw). Even with a saw station built around it, it still won’t have the torque of a belt drive induction motor. And unless you build more space in front of the blade, it’ll still have a fairly small landing zone to get boards settled on. A true full size contractor saw should make for a good upgrade without breaking the bank. A used Delta, Jet, Grizzly, PM, GI, Shop Fox, Craftsman, Ridgid, or Rockwell saw should offer some benefits and potential that your current 2400 does not.
