A 1st-time poster here. Enjoying the wealth of knowledge already.

I’m among the many trying to make the 4512/36-725 decision based on my searches on this forum. My local Lowes has the Delta on display, but none of the local HDs have the 4512 on display.

I can’t seem to get a real size comparison online based on dimensions. Can anyone tell me which of the two are the smaller? So far my preference is the Delta, but space is a concern. I’m just trying to get a real-world size comparison after assembled.

Much appreciated!

I believe they are the same size give or take a fraction of an inch.

The Rigid is slightly bigger, as said by fractions of inches. A friend has the Rigid, I have the Delta.
They are both excellent saw with fantastic fences. Dust collection doesn’t work real well on either.

I’d personally buy the Delta and use the extra money to buy another tool or more wood. :)

I bought the Delta about 8 months ago and couldnt be happier. Just an FYI. You can go on EBAY and buy a 10% off coupon for Lowes. It cost me $1.99 and saved me over $60 after taxes.
