For cutting landscape bricks and patio bricks what tools do you guys use or prefer to use? Wet table saw, wet circular saw, regular circular saw, large dry saw ect.?

All of the above. Each saw has its specific purpose. You can also throw and angle grinder with a 4 1/2" blade too.

We use a MK dry circular saw. It works great. We had a big wet saw but it was a pain to use, we sold that and with the money bought 3 dry saws. But, there is a use for every saw.

I use my demo saw 99% of the time I have a MK dry cut saw but don't use much as a matter of fact if someone want's to buy it make an offer, I have never used a wet table saw, I have run partner, stihl and lately hilti which is definitely the winner for me.
We cut almost alway in place.

Stihl Ts400 on everything I even used it last week to cut up a tractor tire with the demo blade. We have used it in the past to cut sod. Once you get used to it you will never use anything else.

I use a TS400 and an MK 1080 wet table saw. I also put a 4 1/2" diamond blade on my Rigid angle grinder.

wet saw. That is all i use. It is heavy and a pain in the ars, but clean and safe.

I know of 2 people that got hurt with a wet saw (table) and 1 with a demo saw, in reality anything without proper care can cause an accident.
I prefer demo because of speed and If dust is a concern I just hook it up to a hose.

I've only used wet saws. Very clean and accurate cuts. Watch your fingers/ appendages!!!!

my mother almost took her leg off with a demo saw. it cut 3/4 of the way through. we were cutting window wells on a job and the saw kicked back on here. it was a segmented blade and tore throught the bone like butter.
