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.
