Rubi TI Cutter

Tile Cutter

Does any one use this cutter? I was upgrading and it was between this one and the Raimondi. Leaning towards the Raimondi, but the price was a little steep.

Grahm, it's always worth at least a try to type the model into the Advanced Search feature to see what discussion has already been had. If you select Titles Only, it'll narrow it down even more.

Since you were comparing the Rubi And the Raimondi I would say the Raimondi is a step below the Sigma.

Isn't the Rubi. TX900 the priciest of all the cutters in its class for size of tile it cuts and if I have that correct, why is that cutter Rubi TX900 so expensive?

I know a few people that have one and they are all in Florida. Up north everyone seems to be a Sigma person.

Ben,

The Rubi TX-900-N is around $40.00 more than the comparable Sigma. It does seem to be popular down in Florida. I wonder if the extra cost comes in because Rubi does come with a case...

I think it iscase that if you have a Rubi you will look to get another one if it has treated you well. The Tx-N series has new moving breaking system, a new reinforced breaking system, double rectified steel guides and a new one piece swivel angle plate. Those are the main differences that I see.

With that being said we still sell more Sigmas than any other cutter.

I have a ti66 that I bought a couple months ago. It took me some getting used to, at first I thought about taking it back b/c it was breaking tile left and right. Finally in one last attempt to make it work I realized that one of the plastic feet on the breaker was missing. It came with extra so I put it on and away I went. Oh I added some silicone to the breaker pads and the rubber feet on the bottom because they came of way to easy. The cutter is very accurate when cutting always cuts where you want it to. I love the fence on this cutter sure makes diagonal cuts easier. Changing the wheel takes about 10 seconds, one less thing to slow you down. Overall its a bargain for a cutter with all these features.

Hmmm I guess ill stick with the raimondi. Might as well put it next to all the other raimondi stuff in the garage. Ride my berta to work to save gas money for the cutter.
