DeWalt has introduced a 4 3/8-inch Wet and Dry Hand Tile Cutter (DWC860W), a portable saw designed to handle a variety of cuts in stones, tile ceramics and other materials. Ideal for tile installers, pavers, remodelers and masonry and concrete professionals, the DWC860W has the versatility contractors demand with its ability to make crosscuts, beveled or angle cuts and miter cuts in addition to plunge and other compound cuts.
At slightly more than 6 pounds, the DWC860W Tile Cutter features a 10.8-amp motor that delivers 1,300 watts and 13,000 rpm, giving professionals the power and speed they need in a lightweight package. The Tile Cutter also comes equipped with a 13-foot water tube and water nozzles for wet cutting in addition to a GFCI cord, a steel shoe and 45-degree bevel capacity for precise cuts.
The Extended Performance 4 3/8-inch blade that comes with the tool features an aggressive diamond matrix design for cutting porcelain and granite. The 1 3/8- inch depth of cut allows contractors to cut countertops up to 1 1/4 inches thick.
A lock-on button is conveniently located near the trigger, which allows end users to hold the trigger on for ease of use during extended cuts. For durability, dust seals have been incorporated into the handle and trigger to reduce the chances of dust and debris damaging the tool.
