I hear that CX, I need a new spindle bearing on my Target XL and it's still not as loud as either of those.

Mmmm, that seems to suggest that someone was previously interested, Mike. I saw no signs of that. What am I missing?

This saw is getting good reviews. I'm very interested in buying one.

I broke down and bought as Husqvarna 70 with the rolling stand. While its heavy the stand is heavy as well. After a short time with it i wouldn't own it with out the stand. Multiple height adjustments, quick to set up and breakdown. Some things i like,and some i don't like how the rail system is setup.

If the motor holds I'll be happy. I bought the stand and saw for $1600, does what the DeWalt will do without the screaming. Consider looking at it, they are similar.

I've been seeing feedback on Facebook, Instagram, and a friend of mine bought one.

I guess Dewalt has fixed a lot of the little annoyances from the D24000. For instance, the drop-down sprayers have positive stops now so the thing doesn't vibrate down.

Also, it attaches to the water tray- so the thinking is that they will come out with a wheel stand for it. Water management is supposed to be excellent.

All places I don't visit.

I've never had a problem with those water sprayers on my D24000.

Biggest reason I bought the D24000 in the first place is because I can carry it by myself. They just moved out of my market with that new, bigger one.

I bought the 10 inch rigid saw11 years ago specifically because the guy I work with had an MK 101 I think. It was so heavy and such a pain in the ass to set up that I wanted no part of it in my daily tile life. If it doesn't have a rolling stand I want no part of it

I think that you are probably thinking of it as your one, everyday saw that you would load in and out. I'm thinking of it as a second saw.

I use my little Delta 7 inch Cruzer (used to be the Lackmond Beast) as my everyday saw but I've been looking at adding a second saw for installing bigger tile and when I have a job where I'll leave it set up for a while.

With tile getting bigger and bigger, this has been my plan for a while- one smaller saw and one bigger. I was looking at the bigger Delta saw, which is cheaper, but with the feedback on the Dewalt I've decided that this is the saw that I'm going to add to the arsenal.
