Top 10 Best Wet Tile Saw Reviews

1. DEWALT Wet Tile Saw

DEWALT Wet Tile Saw with Stand

Price $849.00

One of the essential things about tools is that they should be easy to use. Therefore, kicking off our list is the DeWalt wet tile saw that is as easy to set up as is to use. You can set it up yourself, use it, and get it ready for transport without any help.

This tile saw is highly accurate because of how the tile saw and stainless-steel rail system are integrated. You can thus get precise cuts with its DeWalt blade thanks to that integration.

Another Thing

The saw comes with rear and side water attachments that you can put at the respective places to prevent water overspray when cutting a large tile. They thus keep the water in the pan as you work on the large tile.

Have you ever tried to transport some tools? How easy was it? The DeWalt wet tile saw comes with a foldable stand that makes its transportation as straightforward a possible. The folding also makes it not to take up too much space on storage.

What's More?

The stand is strong enough to support the very heavy tile saw that weighs close to 69 pounds. It also gives you ample working space for better tile cutting.

You must know that if you don't clean some tools after use, they might rust or get damaged. Still, it isn't easy to clean some tools because of the intricately they make them. This saw has a removable cutting part that allows easier cleaning.

What We Liked

  • The compact structure that saves storage space
  • The compact structure also facilitates more comfortable transport
  • Excellent horsepower
  • The added stand gives you ample working space

What We Did't Like

  • It is problematic cutting 45-degree miter cuts

2. SKIL 3550 Wet Tile Saw

SKIL 3550-02 7-Inch Wet Tile Saw

Price $189.99

The Skil wet tile saw is a corded electric wet tile saw that allows you to cut tiles smoothly. It has a hydro lock system that minimizes water spray when cutting tiles. You thus can work on the tiles in the same room you are fixing them.

It comes with a seven-inch diamond blade that gives you efficient and accurate cutting. The Skill wet tile saw also comes with an aluminum tabletop resistant to rust and routine damage.

Some saws would have issues supporting extra-large tiles. Not this one, though. That's because it comes with a sliding side extension that can hold tiles up to 18 by 18 inches.

For accurate miter cuts, it has an adjustable rip fence with a miter gauge. You can therefore get even, and straight miter cuts at different angles.

Why Is That So Important To A Wet Tile Saw?

You can cut tiles at 0, 22.5, and 45 degrees, allowing flexibility for different cut routines. That' is unlike some wet tile saws with a narrow margin of angles for cutting tiles.

Better Still

It isn't just restricted to a particular type of tile as you can also use it to cut glass tiles. What more could someone ask for?

What We Liked

  • Allows for cutting tile at various angles
  • Hydro lock system ensures there's no overspray of water
  • The sliding extension allows for one to work with extra-large tiles
  • The aluminum tabletop is resistant to rusting and thus tear and wear

What We Did't Like

  • The push guide doesn't work that well at times

3. MK-370EXP Wet Tile Saw

The rip guide is chrome plated and offers rigid support that allows for more precise tile cutting. The inbuilt miter also gives you the ability to cut at an angle of 45 degrees and keep good measure with the tile cuts by lining them.

The fact that it doesn't come with a stand, however, would work against it. The stand would get in the way of a more comfortable storage of transport.

Is That All? No.

It also comes with a sliding table that protects the tile's finished side from the scratching that would occur as you continue cutting.

What We Liked

  • The seven-inch diamond blade allows for even and accurate cutting
  • Inbuilt miter allows cuts of 45 degrees.

4. Porter-Cable Wet Tile Saw

If you are wet cutting tiles and need to line up the miter cuts or achieve repeatable rip cuts, this is the wet tile saw you need. It allows you to do that thanks to the onboard miter square it comes with.

In case you need to transport it somewhere, the roll cage allows for easy carrying and protects the cutting cart even in storage.

The innovative splash guard prevents water from splashing all over you as you work. It also means you can cut tiles in the same room you are fixing them without worrying about creating a huge mess.

The fixed deck also has a hand in preventing the water from spraying all over. It is of stainless-steel construction and is strong enough to hold up the water as you work.

What's better is the drain plug that ensures the water you use drains into a bucket to avoid creating a mess.

The cast metal sliding comes with water channels. It delivers you seventeen inches cutting capacity together with 12 by 12 cutting diagonally.

What We Liked

  • Lightweight and portable
  • Comes with a drain plug that reduces messes from water running over

5. 2.5 Horsepower 10" Industrial Tile/Brick Saw

2.5 Horsepower 10

Price Price not available

The horsepower wet tile saw enables you to cut tiles up to eighteen inches long and up to twelve inches long diagonally. Better still, it cuts up to a depth of over three inches for whatever tile you are cutting.

The steel frame has a precision linear bar system and is oversized to enable you to operate it more smoothly.

With some wet tile saws, the vibrating blade might be a massive hindrance to the work you want to do. 

However, with this saw, the vibration is reduced to a minimum by the cast alloy column.

Furthermore, it also features a reduced cutting head also meant to cut down on the blade's vibration. You can thus carry on your task with the utmost accuracy and efficiency.

  • The vibration is minimal due to the reduced cutting head
  • Can cut a depth of over three inches
  • The steel frame is large enough for smoother operation

6. Golz Masonry Wet Tile Saw

Masonry Tile Saw by GÖLZ - TS250 – Blade 10'...

Price $1,899.00

The Golz masonry wet tile saw comes with a highly impressive ten-inch blade that can cut a maximum depth of 44 7/8 inches. Impressive, isn't it?

This is the saw to go for if you will be cutting tile that is overly thick or might be hard to cut with other saws. It is a heavy-duty saw that allows you to adjust its cutting head to a 45-degree angle.

For a wet tile saw, water should be a constant, and this saw to that with an electric water pump. The pump allows fast coupling and changes when need be.

It comes with foldable legs that enable you to pack it and go as fast as you can set it up. The easy to remove water tube ensures quick cleaning of the saw to prevent debris such as dust.

The blade that cuts all those inches is diamond and has a pluggable guard that allows you to change whenever you want to.

  • The pluggable guard allows for easier changing of the blade

7. QEP HP Torque Master Tile Saw

If you wanted a highly versatile saw, then your search has come to an end with this one. This wet tile saw can cut not only stone tile but also marble, ceramic, and slate.

It differs from the other saws on this list thanks to its plastic construction. The plastic construction ensures it cannot rust, unlike the other wet tile saws. 

The plastic construction also keeps corrosion at bay. The QEP is relatively easy to carry around and transport because it is incredibly lightweight. 

Plastic can't be that hard to lift, can it? If it's light, then that would mean it is relatively compact. Meaning it wouldn't take up too much storage space.

And Do You Know What Else?

With the hinged cutting table, it is easy to adjust it to cut according to the flexibility you need. The table adjusts to enable you to make cuts of 22.5 degrees and 45 degrees.

It comes with a 4-inch QEP rim diamond blade that cuts through thick tiles easily. The clip-on dual extension table gives you extra space for you to operate it. With its 3/5HP motor, it guarantees you the best cutting performance.

With some wet tile saws, it is quite problematic keeping the work area dry due to the water wetting it each time. With the QEP, however, the water recirculation system keeps the work area dry while saving you a lot of time replenishing the water supply.

What We Liked

  • The water recirculation system helps keep the work area dry
  • It is compact and easy to carry around or store
  • It is plastic to prevent and can therefore withstand corrosions and rust
  • The dual clip-on tables give you an extra five inches of working space

What We Did't Like

  • The fact its plastic makes less sturdy than metallic wet tile saws

8. MK Diamond 1/2-Horsepower Wet Tile Saw

9. SKIL 3540-02 Wet Tile Saw

Are you tired of purchasing metal tiles that quickly rust and corrode after just a short time? The answer for you is the SKIL 3540 that comes with a stainless-steel tabletop that resists corrosion and rust.

The stainless-steel top is also sturdy and can support tiles of up to 12 by 12 inches. This wet tile saw also guarantees you straight, and even miter cuts thanks to the adjustable rip fence.

Often as the blade cuts through the tile, it gets so hot and might slow down its effectiveness. However, you can avoid that thanks to the water reservoir that helps cool the blade when it heats up with this saw.

Most saws tabletops suffer corrosion as a result of exposure to many materials that they cut. This saw comes with a tabletop that has been chrome plated to enable it to withstand corrosion.

Like the Skil 354-02, it also has a water reservoir that periodically cools the blade and stops it from overheating.

Cooling the blade ensures you don't have to waste time waiting for it to cool before resuming work.

Are You Due For Some Heavy-Duty Cutting Work? 

Well, with its strong induction motor, the Leegol wet tile saw can generate speeds upwards of 3550 RPM to make overly demanding jobs easier for you.

This wet tile saw also guarantees you accurate and even cutting thanks mainly to its miter gauge that is adjustable together with the rip fence. Someone who has cut tiles before will tell you how strong an adjustable rip fence is.

Storage and transport are comfortable with this tool, thanks to it being compact and portable. However, its compactness hasn't been at the expense of any of its qualities as it can cut tiles up one inch thick.

What We Liked

  • The chrome-plated tabletop withstands corrosion for periods of use
  • The table tilts to allow you to make cuts at different angles
  • The miter gauge and the rip fence are adjustable to give even and speedy cutting
  • It has a water reservoir that serves to cool the blade in the course of work

Buying Guide

Now that we are done with the best available options for a wet tile saw, perhaps you might still wonder what the main things you should look for in a wet tile saw.

The below factors are what you should carefully consider before buying a wet tile saw.

1. How Deep Does It Cut?

This is the main thing you have to consider. No matter how fancy the saw might be, if it can't be a sufficient depth of inches, then it isn't of much use to you.

The quoted depth might, at times, be misleading, and you can, if possible, request a demo where you buy the saw to be sure.

2. Portability

If you're a construction worker, you might need a saw that you can easily transport your worksite. You, therefore, will have to look at how compact and portable the tile saw can be.

3. The Price

Yes, you want the best wet tile saw. But does that mean you pay a ridiculously high price for it? Of course not! A proper saw should offer you the best features while going for a fair price.

4. Durability

No one wants to buy a tool that won't serve them for a considerable amount of time, let alone a tool as necessary as a wet tile saw.

You thus have to consider how long you want to own the wet tile saw and whether it will last that long.

5. Accuracy

A good saw should cut with unerring accuracy is as to avoid damaging your tile. An inaccurate saw could prove quite expensive as it will damage whatever it is you are cutting.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I Use A Wet Tile Saw On Porcelain?

Of course, you can! Some wet tile saws would be great for cutting porcelain tile. However, you would have to take it slow as porcelain is so dense and might tax even the strongest of wet saw blades.

2. How Often Should I Change My Tile Saw Blade?

As soon as you sense some dullness. How do you know that? The blade struggles to cut less thick material than it used to cut before.

3. Can A Tile Saw Blade Injure Me?

Yes. The blade can injure you. However, it won't be as serious as a wood saw blade that would chop your fingers off. A wet saw blade would more like burn you or scratch you.

Final Thoughts

Are you ready to wet tile shopping now? Did we answer all of the burning questions you had? We sure hope we did.
