Never let me down
Had this cutter for 3 years now and used it to cut floor and wall tiles for 3 bathrooms and kitchen in my house plus 2 bathrooms and kitchen in my sons house. Never had any issues, still using original blade. It does require an area where you don't mind making a mess as the cooling water goes on the floor when cutting larger tiles and dust produced also gets spread about. If left for a while the blade sticks inside the guard but being an induction motor no damage is caused and once freed with a quick tug (power off!) it works a treat again. It is a proper tool and is completely adjustable to overcome any issues. The bulk can be an issue as it is by no means light, Plus it has wheels for moving about but there is no inbuilt way of storing on end, I ended up making a bracket for it to sit on.

Complete waste of money
Bought it as recommended by store staff. Its very bulky, cutting tray doesnt sit on the rail properly, one end touches the rail other end doesnt. Dirt gets on the rail. Brand new just out the box, never cut a proper 90,.. . The legs arent straight, the whole unit rocks back to front . Motor doesnt start, needs to be helped than works fine. The pump and the pipe work is a real joke, Pump comes with 4 tiny suction legs which never stay in its place, pipes that doesnt fit and always on the way of cutting. I had to cable tie pipes so that I can cut large tiles. ..And it costs over £400 inc vat...its going back for a full refund very disappointing Toppstiles selling such a poorly made tool and recommending it.
