I don’t have that exact model, but close. Basic top is 27×44 in. Depth front to back including motor and stock rip fence is 42 in. Mine has the cast iron wings. Can’t tell max rip… I cut the rails long ago… Never had the need, just in the way…

Regards from Kentucky!

KYtoolsmith I assume you are saying that while looking at the saw, left to right is 44 inches and from the side where your basket is measures 27”

Yep, as you stand in the normal using position, the top itself is 44 inches left to right, 27 inches front to back. Note that the motor extends the floor space front to back to 42 inches. I’ve had this one since new in 1994. Good saw for it’s class.

It was my first saw, I bought it new in 1993. I would suggest upgrading the fence. Either an aftermarket one or a home made one. I picked up the Exacta Rip fence, it has issues. I would suggest a Biesmeyer clone from either AskwoodMan or John Heinz wooden fence instead. Did a lot on it though. I now have my PCS 3 Hp Sawstop. I would buy the C=Man again, if I was at the same point in my life. Sold it for $125 to someone, who needed an upgrade from a circular saw table, table saw. Dan

To be honest, I am not sure weather or not it is a good purchase now. I am looking at the craftsman pro series that is almost identical to the Ridgid R4512.
