New paver saw

I saw this at a show last month and was really impressed with it.

How much are they going for? Did you get to use it? It cuts dry? I need a second saw to run with my huge old Target

I saw it demonstrated. Just as quick as a gas saw, and loud. It cuts dry, which is great when you're trying to finish up cuts and poly sand right after. Its $2k on their website. I like it. Thinking about buying one. I would even consider replacing my current gas 14" saw with it.

Thats steep, i know its dustless but still. What % of dust does it capture and are there filters to clean etc? The brickies go for 9xx.00 by me, and a shop vac is 100 bucks

I saw it inside. There wasn't any dust. I was impressed.

There's no way. That's a 15A saw. I have a 14" handheld 17A AEG saw, and it doesn't even come close to a gas saw in power. Something like half. And this one uses less electricity, and loses some of that power for dust collection too.

It is just impossible to get as much power out of a 15A outlet, as you can get out of a small gas engine. The HP just isn't there. 2.4HP is the most you can draw on 15A (at 100% efficiency, which is quite impossible). A Stihl TS400 delivers almost twice that power.

I'm not saying it is not capable. I do a lot with my electric saw, but it is not as quick as a gas saw. That's all.

I think this dude is a rep for them ! I've never seen a electric saw that is even close to a gas. For a couple of cuts electric is ok but that's about it. I get tired of the breakers tripping

My equipment guy demo'd one of these to me two years ago. Only problem I had with it was that there was not enough clearance between the blade and the arm that holds the power head up. Easy to clean the filter inside (just spin a handle on the side that "flicks" the dust off with a finger type piece that touches the ribs of the filter. But I thought the one I demo'd was a Dewalt.

I'm not a rep, dude. I often need to cut dry. I've looked into vac systems. They're expensive and generally use another gas engine. I saw this and thought it was a cool idea. It does use a dewalt miter box power supply. I was wondering if anyone actually uses it because I too am wondering about the power compared to gas. I saw it cut a standard paver and it did fine. It would be limited, I think, when trying to cut wall block or longer cap blocks, but looks good for pavers. I was just wondering if someone had real world experience with it.

My Borgert rep used one inside a local trade show and had no complaints on the dust. I however think there are safety issues with using this style of saw for cutting pavers. Not to mention how hard it is to cut a curve. Quikie saw or table saw are what I prefer.
