What does everyone prefer? and why?
theres benefits from both. Wet keeps the dust down and i think it gives it a better cut. But the majority of the times we do dry cuts.
Mostly dry. Doesn't take time to setup. But water is better.
Dry cut with the Edco table saw which uses a shop vac to control and eliminate the dust and cleanup. When cutting with a demo saw, dry is much easier as the hose attachment is very unwieldy. Always try to cut downwind of the project, home or any other important areas that may not appreciate concrete dust and silica being sprayed all over them.
If OSHA see's you cutting dry - they'll fine you.
And they ARE cracking down on patio builders cutting dry and just lettin dust clouds form.
Thanks for the heads up DVS Hardscaper
If osha wasnt cracking down, which saw would you prefer.
It only takes a minute to plug the hose into the saw and it is a nicer cut. Most importantly, why not cut it wet...? If you dry cut you do make the big clouds of dust which in-turn get dust on everything at your client's house, patio, pool, cars, neighbor's house, neighbor's car... and so on. Just plugging in the hose negates all those issues. Plus, a good diamond blade will wear slower if used wet.
Ok so most of you guys prefer wet saws.
Any recomendations on what wet saw to buy.
Also a few of you say a wet saw makes a nicer cut, How is this?
Our dry (chop style) saws make perfect cuts every time with a 14" diamond blade, how can a wet saw make a better cut? Just curious?
EDCO is the saw that all should be using.

Check out the HSS14, it is the easiest saw to use and the cleanup is a breeze every day. http://www.edcoinc.com/index.html/screen/hardscape_saws/session_id/f6f13108ad43fa5502cbfea4e164b300
