The Ridgid stuff is fine. I have a table saw, shop vac, 18v drill, 12"
miter saw, and an oscilating spindle sander by Ridgid so Ian not an
anti-Ridgid kind of guy. All of the gear works well. However, most have
quirks and trying to get repairs, parts, or accessories can be a
challenge. For example, getting a dado insert for the saw was a pain.
This week, the local Home Depot was out of all filters for the vac (they
did get the HEPA filter in a week later). And even store associates
cringe when you bring up repairs.
I will use what I have and it will work well, I am betting. But I would
never buy another Ridgid product due to service/supply chain problems.

I needed a dado insert so I just made one. I cut the shape from baltic
birch. After installing and locking in place I raised the dado and
created just what I wanted. It was even a zero clearance insert for the
first dado width.
