New Tile saw

I am looking to buy a new saw. I am a journeyman tile setter in Northern Cali for over 20 years. I have only owned Felkers and currently use a Target which is what I have used most. Dont much like MKs or rail saws. I own a huge rail saw that i only use for LFT dont like to much. I want to stay with the same format. I like Husqvarna (Target) but have been advised to get the Dewalt by a few good installers also looking at Rubi 250 evolution / Husq ts60/.
I am looking for some info from tile setters on any of these saws?

Welcome, Marc.

That's one of the most discussed topics on the site. Please start by typing "wet saw" or/and "tile saw" or the model number of any of the saws you just named into the Advanced Search feature and ask for Titles. You'll find lots and lots of discussions.

Hi Marc, welcome. I'm a old Felker/Target fan from way back. About a year ago a home owner asked me if I wanted to buy his nearly new Dewalt. I did and I do like the saw. I like the tightness of the table with practically no sideways movement. Mine cuts very square even after cutting with the same Dewalt blade that came with it. The homeowner did say that he bought the better blade so it doesn't have the cheap blade that comes new with the saw. I like the features of the Dewalt but the bearings are already screaming.

I don't see the Dewalt lasting as long as any of the Targets that I have had. I have changed the bearings in Target saws too but usually after many years of service.
