My table saw and miter saw are partners in crime. I rarely use one without using the other. So it made sense to me to buy a Ryobi table saw again a few years ago so they’d be a matching pair.
Are you looking to see if the Ryobi RTS22 table saw is a good buy for you? In this article, I’ll tell you about my actual experience with this saw.

My Ryobi RTS22 Table Saw Experience
I actually owned a blue Ryobi table saw for over a decade before I bought this new green version. The blue one held up great considering it made hundreds of cuts. The Ryobi RTS22 table saw is similar in feel and even sounds the same when running.
Even though this table saw comes with a blade, you may want to consider buying another blade with finer teeth to suit your cutting needs. The blade guard can be easily removed if necessary, just be careful!
The Ryobi RTS22 table saw has served me well during the several years that I’ve owned it. The motor has powered through everything I’ve wanted to cut, though it seems louder than other similar brand table saws that I’ve used.
One complaint that I have, though, is the blade access cover doesn’t perfectly align with the table top. When I run wood through the saw, it drops down slightly as it passes over the cover.
That problem hasn’t been a major issue for me and likely wont be for the average homeowner. But I’m sure professional woodworkers wouldn’t tolerate it at all.
After three years of use, this saw is still going strong for me. It’s a lightweight table saw and overall it’s great for the DIY homeowner looking for something that’s mobile and easy to use.
