Can't give you any feedback on the particular saw, but fwiw a few tile guys I know really love the Ridgid ones so they're probably worth looking at too.

I think the Ridgid is garbage.

We've owned the Dewalt for about 5 years.

Pros: Light weight, easily portable. Breaks into a number of pieces for easy transport.

Very good water containment.

Good capacity in a moderate size.

Decent power.

Nice included accessories.

Cons: Crappy blade.

Not an industrial machine (direct drive motor instead of belt drive).

Moderately expensive (upwards of $900 - $1000 for full setup with stand).

Re: Dewalt 10" Wet Saw D24000S


GRB pretty much summed it up. I have had mine for 7 years and can't really complain.

There are comparable saws for less money available now. I have been eyeing up the Imer 200

Re: Dewalt 10" Wet Saw D24000S


Have you looked at the mk diamond saws?

I bought the 370EXP 1-1/4 HP 7-Inch saw when funds were low for about 450$..

It's a decent saw. Gets the job done. Not the best and not the worst.

Very portable.

Re: Dewalt 10" Wet Saw D24000S


I recently bought the Dewalt D24000S and after one job it started to wine and the motor pretty much died. I had read all of the great reviews on Amazon and decided to give it a try. After doing further research, I guess Dewalt just changed how they make the motor(IE cheaper). I have found a few other people who recently bought the saw and are having the same problems. Too bad, as I really liked the saw. I would like to think I just got a lemon, but I don't want to take the chance of having the saw die in the middle of a job again.

I am looking at the Husqvarna T60 now, but they recalled the saw for a problem with the motor. I was told it should be worked out in the next month. We will see

Re: Dewalt 10" Wet Saw D24000S


The Ridgid is not a very good saw. Constantly comes out of calibration. Very frustrating to say the least. Loud and the pump is fairly weak. I hope it falls out of the trailer on my way back to the shop

I have the opportunity to pick up a gently used FELKER TM-75 for $150.00. I think I am going to give it a shot.
