    I kind of hate to let people in, because now the prices will be going up...

    but I've got 2 of them , so I really don't need any more!

    Go to ebay, keyword 'partner saw' .....(Don't put the word 'concrete' in there.......its one of those little tricks you have to do.....it seems everyone else does searches for 'concrete saw' so anything listed with the word concrete ends up going for a lot more money because a lot more people see it)

    The guy is out of pittsburg. For about 5 months, he has been selling brand new, in the box, K650 with a starting bid around 300. I won one 4 months ago for only 400 bucks and another last month for 535 bucks......sweet deals!

    Most of the time, they go for under $600.

    Here's one you just missed out on!


    Even with shipping, you save big over any supplier out there.

    Also, there's been quite a few people selling complete tub saw sets (blade, saw, stand) for under 800......another good deal if you are interested, and they aren't no name brans, mainly MK 101's.....

    Thanks for the info - looks like he doesn't have any for sale right now, but I'll keep an eye on it.

    Actually, they cost me $87.96 plus freight.
    40% to 50% dealer discount is about typical from the major manufacturers.

    A word of warning to folks praising those supercheap Ebay, etc blades.
    Have you ever seen what can happen to someone's eye or other body part when a segment flys off a blade spinning at over 3000 rpm? Not a pretty sight!
    Wear goggles or preferably a face shield.

    I have had a blade lose a segment and it amazed me how far the pieces fly and how hard they hit things. If one of these were to hit you even safety glasses wouldn't help! This wasn't a cheap blade (almost $400.00) but it was defective. Manufacture replaced it no charge. Wear your safety gear and keep gaurds in place/
