Summary

It has a great rating and users are happy the way it performs. The DEWALT DWC860W 4-3/8-Inch Wet/Dry Masonry Saw comes in a complete package that contains 13’ water line and regulator, 4-3/8 Diamond blade, 2 wrenches and an instruction manual and is a great buy at this price.

Diamond blades are always a great choice for cutting tiles or stones for both dry and wet applications. All you need is a corded electric tool in a lightweight and balanced design with a powerful and sturdy motor. It is good to have additional features like depth adjustments, beveling capacity, water feed, lock button, soft grip handle, strong stainless steel base and lock button etc.

The last priority is price range and if you find such tool in very reasonable price from a reputable company like DEWALT, don’t think twice. Our pick is the DEWALT DWC860W 4-3/8-Inch Wet/Dry Masonry Saw and we will try to explain why it offers good return for money.

Increased Comfort – Increased Control – Increased Power

Featuring Premium Diamond blade with a diameter of 4-3/8”, the DEWALT 4-3/8-Inch Wet/Dry Masonry Saw is capable of tearing ceramics or stones, wet of dry, as deep as 1-3/8”. It is powered by a 10.8-amp motor which consumes 1300 watts via fixed cord. It enables you to slice concrete, stones, porcelain, granite and other masonry applications. Weighing only 6.6 lbs., this saw is an example of great ergonomics for excellent balance.

The well-designed handle allows working for long periods of time without arm fatigue. The unit is lightweight and compact, so it is also very convenient to handle it or carry it around during longer cutting tasks. A user-friendly design makes it easier to operate the tool. DEWALT uses a black soft layer on the main handle for increased grip and comfort.

Technology That Works for You

There is a depth adjustment knob at the back of the DEWALT DWC860W which is easy to reach, while the bevel adjustments knob settings are located at the front. There is onboard scale for precise depth and angle adjustments. Bevel can be adjusted between 0° and 45°. It is a right-hand tool with a blade on the left for better visibility. Package contains 13 feet water tube for wet applications.

This onboard facility reduces dust, heat and increases blade life and better performance. But this part is cheaply constructed. Shut off valve is not good, it leaks water and cannot completely stop water flow. But you can always cut the water source from a main valve. Rest of unit and its components are great including the base, which is made from stainless steel and it stays in shape for years.
