Question about Ridgid Saws
Chances are that the motor is mis-aligned with the saw pully. Make sure the power is off and remove the access panel so you can see both pullys at the same time. Take a straight edge and place it alongside the saw pully and then check the motor pully to see if it is aligned with the saw pully. If not then some shimming of the motor mounting points may be necessary to achieve alignment. Then check the belt tension by grasping the drive belt halfway between the two pullys and squeezing the belt together. It should have no more than 1/2 to 3/4 inches of play. If it is more than that adjust the motor mounting points to remove the slack.
