Introducing the ZERO DUST System
Rubi has created a dust and water collection system in accordance with health and dust prevention regulations in the construction industry. Zero dust technology drastically reduces airborne dust and water slurry which prevents ailments related to inhaling silica dust. With this goal in mind, all RUBI DC, DS, DX and DR tile and stone saws will include the ZERO DUST dust reduction system as standard. The system also minimizes water consumption during the cutting process which reduces time to refill the water tank.

Questions & Answers (12)
Got new rubi dc 250 tile saw and it won't come on. Any suggestions?
This sounds like a power-related issue. If you are using an extension cord, try removing the extension cord and plugging the saw directly into the power source. If this does not work, please call Rubi at 1-866-872-7824 to troubleshoot with their technical service team over the phone.
Does the DC 250 come with a side arm extension?
This product does not come with a side arm extension, however, there are accessories available for extending the cutting size of your table.
How do I get a Base Lateral Stop for DV/DC/DS/DX?
You can get the specific part number from Rubi Tools at 1-866-872-7824 and contact us to purchase that part and ship direct to your location. With the rapid model changes for machines, we do not carry the parts list. The manufacturer always has the most accurate parts list based on model and serial number.
How long can I count on this saw lasting on a daily basis of use before the metal rusts out?
Rubi tile saws are built to last, but routine maintenance goes a long way. Wipe the saw down after cutting to remove any residual moisture and prevent rust from developing. Rubi does not recommend any aggressive cleaning products be used to clean the machine. Rubi suggests cleaning the tracks of the rail guide with a cotton cloth dampened with water - you do not need any lubrication. Take care of your gear and it will take care of you!
Is this saw equipped with a laser guide?
A laser guide is not included with this saw, however, a Rubi laser kit accessory is available for sale separately here.
I bought this saw and used it to cut 13 x 40 tiles, it worked great. I am now doing a walkway and wonder if this saw can be used to cut clay bricks?
Thanks for contacting Contractors Direct. This saw is capable of cutting bricks with the proper technique. Depending on the material's density, you may need to "step-cut" through the material as to not strain the motor.
Is the saw 67 inches with the wheels on or off
The dimensions include the wheels.
Will a 48'' tile fit on the table?? i don't think it will rip a 48'' tile sounds like it'll have to be flipped?? I'm looking for a rail saw to cut 2'x4' tiles. should I go to the next size up??
The length of cut on this saw is just under 48" at 47-7/16". If you are looking to cut in one pass rather than having to flip the tile it might be best to size up so you do not run into any issues.
Can the 48” saw cut a 48” piece of slab material?
The length of cut on this saw is 47-7/16 in with plunge
and 42-1/2" without plunge.
What is the next size up to rip a 48” tile with turn tile around
You would need to move to a Rubi DS-250-51". SKU 7729
Is one person able to load and set this saw up or is too big/heavy?
This rail saw weighs 132 lb and has an overall length of 67" so it is advised for 2 people to load and unload the saw at jobsites. However, with its folding legs and wheel kit, this saw can be easily moved and set up once unloaded by one person.
I am looking into buying a saw to cut pieces of marble size 40 x 40 inches. Can this saw do the work? Also can it do miter cuts? Well i mean 45 degree angle cuts
Thanks for answering promptly
Yes, this saw is more than capable of cutting 40in x 40in pieces length-wise. The max depth of cut (thickness) is 3-1/2in and this saw has a max diagonal cut of 33in x 33in. Please note that you may require a different blade than the stock blade shipped with this saw. We would recommend a blade manufactured for cutting marble.
Ratings & Reviews
Great Bridge Saw
I needed a heavy duty wet saw to cut 48” porcelain for my last project. I used it with the Viper blade and cuts look awesome, it totally worth the investment. Best wet saw in the market at this price.
High quality bridge saw
This bridge saw operates smoothly and cuts through tile like butter. The blade had a nice rubber shield that keeps water off the operator and on the tile that is being cut. The adjustment to make angle cuts is very easy to perform and the adjustment for width and angles is very easy to make. The handle has a nice grip and pulls through the cut seamlessly. The legs fold up against the body and with the heavy duty wheels it is easy to move and store. This is a very high quality product.
I bought this saw and used it to cut 13 x 40 tiles, it worked great.
In love with this saw!
I purchased this saw last year as more people are choosing larger format tiles and I am VERY particular about my cuts and making sure cuts are equal even on a 24" plus rip. solid build, good quality. This saw cuts very nice even with the stock blade, the arm is smooth and nice to use, plunge cuts are good. you need to make sure that you check to make sure the saw is square after you move it around. I was out about 1/8" on a 24" rip after I moved the saw. not hard to re-align. this is a HEAVY saw. tough to set up if you are alone. set it up on a job and leave it. takes a ton of water compared to others. over all I would give it a 4.5 but I rounded up.
Great saw and people at Contractor Direct
Great saw, needed to cut 47"x 47" and it did its job. The best of all is the people at Contractor Direct who work out the logistic so that I can order online and pick up the saw at the same day at a local store. I can't ask for better service.
Why didn't I buy this earlier...
by Gary S. -
I was given the opportunity to use the exact same saw for cutting some 36 in pieces I had to rip, it worked great. Also cutting the 12 by 24 was much easier on this saw is than my other one I have. So I took the plunge and bought one, couldn't have been a better choice!!
