Ridgid 4512 Saw and Dado Blades

Has anyone successfully mounted an 8 inch dado set on a Ridged 4512 table saw, and if so, HOW? The riving knife and orange locking handle are both obstacles.
Flipping the orange locking handle up (unlocking it) alleviates that problem, but the riving knife remains, not allowing a full pass over the blades.

According to page 26 of the owners manual I found on Home Depots website, it says this:

To place in riving knife position (or “down” position for all non-through cutting):
 Remove the throat plate.
 Raise the saw blade by turning the height adjusting handwheel clockwise.
 Unlock the release lever by pulling it up.
 Push the riving knife down until it is below the saw blade.
 Lock the release lever by pushing the lever down.
 Reinstall the throat plate

I hope this helps.

You should remove the knife when you are using a dado set.
