If you are a truly professional tile contractor, this suppose to be your standard equipment. Period.
It is heavy but very reliable machine. Compact design, fits into almost any sedan trunk.
Rip cuts 24\" long so it can cut diagonally a 18x18\" tile.
Good quality, fairly silent, everybody likes it.
2 tricks: We enclosed the water pump into a gardeners sock to avoid debris getting into the system. Also it is very important to clean the rolling bed guides every day to ensure smooth operation = straight cuts.
Definitely a great buy.
Pearl Tile saw, 10/2/2006 By Another tool addict(New York, )
This saw is built like a battleship.One thing that made me choose this model is the feel of the table, it is incredibly smooth. The only thing I miss about the Felker I used to use is the access for freehand work, but I can block the new table out of the way behind the saw and have pretty good access. Every professional knows that stability is key to any good saw, and this is as stable as it gets.The stainless pan is great, with no sharp edges.
Great saw!, 1/5/2007 By Sean(Sonoma county, )
[...]Much more power than the dewalt and cuts perfectly square. I'll never buy another mk again

Great saw ! very pleased with performance , build quality and accuracy of cuts - right out of the carton . powerful saw , excellent water distribution , quiet under no load and very reasonable under load . 2\" granite over 18 \" long this weekend with no probs what so ever . Smooth running table and extension is great design . Two thumbs up . Retired a felker fts150 - good saw -- this Pearl takes wet saws at this size and budget to a new level !
