Better Than Expected

This saw is beautiful and well designed. It does a great job keeping the water under control. I used it 4' away from freshly painted walls without a problem. It cut straight and easily without adjustment of the table right out of the box. It is not to heavy to handle by myself and it plops onto its stand easily. The stand has adjustable feet and locking clamps to keep the saw in place. It has a level eye to keep the water level level. The cast aluminum construction is substantial, blade change a snap, plunge cut and overall cutting capacity heroic. I was going to buy the Tilematic for the legendary belt drive Baldor motor, but the convenience factors of the TS 60 paired with my undemanding use of the saw (no hours of continual cutting), made it the better choice for me as a remodeler.

I've been in the tile contracting business for about 10the years nowso I know a thing or two about tile saws. This saw was a huge disappointment upon arrival. First and foremost I don't consider this saw a Husqvarna since its made in china. There are plastic parts everywhere that would be aluminum on other nice saws. It's a very large clumsy saw, the water system is questionable for long term use. The side tray table can only be removed with a wrench which takes up even more room in the van. The transport wheels are a good idea and would be usable if the rear tray didnt fall out as soon as you lift the front making the wheels useless. This may be a decent saw to set up in a shop and never move it but for most of us in this business we need a more efficient saw to transport and set up and a saw thatto can take a few dings along the way. The dewalt is a far superior saw and way more practical for everyday use. My dewalt takes a beating daily and still performs as new. Its at a much lower price point too. So unless you plan to set up in your shop and never move it go with the dewalt hands down.

Worked great for large format tile. I would suggest an improvement on the water hose under the table it gets stuck sometimes on the track.

it lasted 1 year on commercial jobs
stick with the belt driven!
On second thought

After owning this for a few years I have found myself using it as little as possible in favor of my inexpensive QEP table wet saw. This saw is cumbersome and its features like the alternate water setting aren't always effective once it gets too much debris or something. Water pump lasted a short time, drain plug got lost, I had to use a bungee chord to tie up the rear back up guard so I could roll it. The blade change door broke and it is nearly impossible to align the tray so it will cut straight. The pump hose gets stuck underneath. All the features I loved about this saw initially have lost their luster. Not a commercial grade saw.
Great piece of equipment, cuts small pieces without breaking the tile and very good water containment. Nice sturdy machine.
