Best Wet saw

Hey Gang, i am going to have a few paver jobs this year and i figured it might be cheaper to get a wet saw then renting one everytime. Thats the same reason i got a wacker this year. So what do you guy use and why?

Stihl ts-400. It's portable, I can use it wet or dry, and it's got plenty of power. Less expensive than a stationary saw, also.

lol


anyways The Husq K960 works great.

How much did you pay for your wacker... That's one of those things I just havn't found a used one around yet because they are two expensive for something that looks so much like it should cost 250$.

I will check those brands out. I bought it for 400 bucks used. I figured it cost me 350 a week to rent one. Last project i had i needed it everyday but i only tamped everytime i made a new layer. So it was worth it to me.

lets be reaistic, fellas.

How many professional painters do you know that have just one ladder???

You need 2 saws. A hand held (Stihl), and a table saw.

There is no way you can miter PERFECT wall caps and step treads WITHOUT a table saw.

The EPA is in the process of making dust collection laws go into effect. It's hard to collect dust with a hand held saw

Luckily, EDCO is prepared!
