Wet suggestions

I haven’t found a wet saw I truly like since my Felker. Had 2 Rigid saws burn out in the last week.

Any suggestions on a good saw that will last?

We still have an old Target runs great and cuts straight.
Have had my Dewalt 240000 for 5 years heavy use and abuse, still going was <$900 with a choice of a tool. Same features as the ridges but better water containment.
Have a 3 year old IMER Combi that I use for Large Tile and any Fabrication needs for pool coping and tile. Has a 64” capacity with the plunge, tilt works if your material isn’t an impossible porcelain. Using it this week to rip down some 2’ by 4’ porcelain. Good saw contains water decently if you’re not extending the saw the full length back.
Tried a Kobalt, good in a pinch but junk for containment and not as versatile as the Dewalt or as powerful.

Dewalt's are the best, IMO. However, if you really liked your Felker then you may not like the Dewalt.

Husqvarna might be more your thing.
