when you're doing a lot of cutting do you find the pan overflowing and you're working in a swamp? My saw throws tons of water out the back and everything is a mess at the end of the day, just wondering how much worse this would be
All the saws we've ever had do make a mess. Not really a machine I want to use next to the pavers we've installed.

We use a Felker and it has a rubber plug in the pan. 2 guys can cut for 4-5 hours before changing the water. If I just had a garden hose ran to it with no pan I would be standing in a sloppy mess every time I made a cut. That is the reason we use a pump to recirculate water.

I take the pump out of the pan and put it in a 5 gal bucket of clean water. It's a little more effort, but it keeps the pump clean.

Does the pan drain to the bucket?

No. The tray has a surprisingly large capacity, and doesn't need to be emptied all that often.
