Would you recommend this saw to cut/rip 2-3 inch x 30 inch thick Bluestone. And for use on concrete pavers?

This unit can only cut approximately 2-1/2" thick, so you would need to pass the blade twice to fully cut that material. In regards to using this on concrete pavers you would need to install a concrete blade on it due to the RPM required. This particular job would take a significant amount of production time with this unit.

Is it too heavy for one person to move around?
