review of Pearl cx-10

In my honest opinion[not because i paid for the thing], The pearl cx-10 is the nicest saw i've used yet[ ive cut on m.k's, rizzo's,superior built,felker, and Dewalt.] The rail syestem on this saw is very stable and damn accurate! the B.M.X style grip for the easy release chop saw action comes in handy and just looks cool,now for some downfalls, There are a lot of moving parts[more that could potentially go wrong] tile chips find there way all over and are not easily cleaned out. Having the saw head come toward you as you push the table took a little gettin used to, but i really like that feature now[in no way is it as awkward as a rail saw I/m/o.] All in all it was worth the cost[989.00 w stand] It has a 2hp motor and very high r.p.m[with the right blade ,that kicks ass!] picture is in the "what i did at work today thread"

Kevin, I need new saw too. I looked at P CX10. I did not like the double motion, every time you cut the tile, you have to pull the weight of the motor - doesn't it make the cutting harder on you?

Daltile had one just out of the box soon after they came out. The salesman who brought it was there so I asked a bunch of questions. Liked the footprint, didn't like all the moving parts. Seem to remember lots of wheels mounted sideways or something at the rails... that seemed prone to problems.

Heard they went through field tests in CA for about a year or so before settling on the production model. How long have you had it Kevin? So far so good huh?

so far so good, The saw head slides very easy, the pupose of the moving head is ...Less traveling time for the blade through the tile, they meet eachother halfway, So it's intention is for example.... your cutting an 16" tile on a 45[makin triangle halves] yur less likely to veer or get off your mark when the cutting distance is half the time.. anyway Im pleased and satisfied,But the moving head assembely does raise concern with me ,Im realying on the R&D dept. @ pearl , let's hope they thouroughly tested this bad boy!

Where do you store the water tray, I mean having a water tray to catch the water is nice but that one looks like..... Looks like it comes apart, so it is 2 pieces. The DW has three pieces and when working outside I don't use the two add-ons.

The Target being heavy is one of the most heavily beat deadhorses.I mean....heavy?...iii dunno...maybe,I guess.How much is a full bag of thinset mixed w/water?Everything we deal with in tile is heavy.The saw is pretty much your focal point on big jobs.Set it up once and breakdown when pau(done).Id probably even like a more heavier saw if it was more durable,powerful,and lasted longer.Jus sayin...
