    Default Tool for cutting 400x400x30mm granite pavers

    Hi all,


    Does anyone have a wet tile saw recommendation for cutting 400x400x30mm granite pavers? I'm looking at the Dewalt D36000, but curious as to what others are using.


    Cheers!

    How many cuts do you need to do? I used a 9" angle grinder and a steady hand for mine

    Ive used a metal cutoff saw with a masonry blade in it for bricks and pavers before and it did a great job . Used a 5 litre pump up garden sprayer to keep the dust down but i still wore a respirator mask . Masonry blades might be hard to find these days

    Edit blades still available

    Never thought to do that but how about a diamond blade instead:

    I've got one of these and it goes through stone or concrete like butter, no dust at all either. https://sydneytools.com.au/product/m...tting-tile-saw
    I've also got his little brother who can cut up to 34mm, but takes a fair bit longer. https://www.mitre10.com.au/makita-86...B&gclsrc=aw.ds
    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    I use this, works well, bit slow but safe and accurate, completely dust free.
