Iq dry tile saw

Hey guys,

I've been lurking around the forum for a while and finally decided to join. The other day I was at daltile and saw a dry cut tile saw made by iq. I've been installing for over 13 yrs and was looking for something that wouldn't suck to use in the winter. Any input appreciated. Thanks

Got to test it out at Marazzi, cut a plank down some and had chipping on the cut edge but it could easily be dressed up. Ran the cut same speed as I do on the husqavarna.

The time it would save me to be able to cut in the bathroom and not have to thaw out the saws would be great. I just can't seem to find and reviews

Its for straight cuts only. Not miter capabilities.(Like DeWalt) Great for cookie cutter commercial work. The minute you lift the tile off the bed say to do a U cut or L cut the dust flies. Look into getting yourself a Wet Tent to set your saw up in.

I have seen the dry saw demonstrated at Coverings. I still prefer the wet saw.

Went tents are another option. I still use mine occasionally to keep things cleaner and keep it set up in one place close to the work.

Any investment on something requiring a proprietary blade seems screwey IMO.

After market blades will be along in due time, once the need arises and profits are to be made.

I have one; it has limitations and wouldn't be suitable as an only saw but the pro's outweigh the cons for me. I also have a DeWalt, 10" Beast, 7" MK, and a great white; the IQ has become my most frequently used saw.
