I had the Ridgid R4331. After 19 days of using it, it got extremely noisy and sounded like a coffee can full of bolts rattling around. Returned it for a new one, and the second one lasted 10 minutes before the chip blower fan ate up the shroud. I would not buy one again.

I got my money back and bought a Dewalt 735. It’s a vastly superior machine, even when the first R4331 was working correctly.
