Product Description

From the Manufacturer
The D24000 10 wet tile saw is the only cart saw on the market to offer 24 rip capacity and 18 capacity on diagonal with a total weight under 70 pounds. The cutting cart cantilevers off the front and back of the rails to offer impressive capacity without the need for a long water pan and rail system. The D24000's low weight and compact water pan make it possible for one user to transport the saw into the work site in just 2 easy trips. The D24000's rail system is attached to the saw frame to ensure accurate cuts without the need for daily set-up and calibration. The saw also boasts best-in-class water containment made possible by an adjustable water nozzle system that delivers water to the point of the cut without creating a tremendous amount of mist. The large, detachable water trays catch water spray and spill-over on large tiles to capture the water and direct it back into the pan. The D24000 delivers innovation and practical features that make it the most versatile saw on the market. The integrated 45o and 22.5o bevel feature allows the user to make fast angled cuts without the need for an awkward and bulky 45o cart block. The head also plunges into the material, making pocket cuts quick and easy for AC registers and electrical outlets. All of these innovations and features exist to make the user more productive. Includes cart extension, edge-guide, rear pan and cutting cart water attachments, 5 gallon ABS plastic water pan, 10 porcelain cutting blade, pump, and blade change & rail adjustment wrenches. Stand sold separately (D24001).

DeWalt leapfrogs the competition with innovative wet saw!, February 11, 2006
Reviewer: Victor H. Agresti "remodeling-guy"

DeWalt D24000 10" wet tile saw

One reviewer called this tool a "game changer" in the wet saw business. I agree. Having done tile work for years using mostly MK brand tile saws, when this saw came on the market, its benefits were obvious. Here's an analogy. At a car show when mini-vans were still fairly new, a salesman was showing his model, which had a sliding door on one side. Next to his display was a competing mini-van with sliding doors on both sides. He knew immediately that his mini-van was an obsolete design.

Compared to this wet saw, every other model near this price point is an old-design.

Here's why:

1. DeWalt made this a LARGE capacity saw, but light enough for one person to carry. Although the tool is only 70 lbs., you never have to lift that much. DeWalt advertises "two trips" to transport the tool:

Trip 1: Tub (water trays, miter and table extension, stored inside) and the fold-up tool stand.

Trip 2: Saw assembly with rolling table locked in place, and water pump. (54 lbs., total).

Rather than carrying an awkwardly shaped 54 pounds, I transport the tool in three trips:

Trip 1: Saw assembly minus the pump and sliding table. (44 lbs., total.)

Trip 2: Tub (with water trays stored inside) and a 5-gallon bucket holding the water pump, table extension, and miter gauge. The water pump is supposed to be secured to a slotted "mini-table" on the saw-assembly when being transported. Instead, a quick-release connector on the water line of my saw allows removal of the 3 lb. water pump. Click on customer photos.

Trip 3: Custom made tool stand and a wooden tool box holding the 7 pound rolling table. The table has three sets of double rollers which could be damaged if it's dropped. The box protects the table when it's being stored or transported. Again, click on customer photos.

2. The team that designed the water-containment system must have been told they'd get 50 lashes if it didn't work, because it's very effective. Other large wet saws spray lots of water to the front, and drip water off the sides, especially with large tiles. Consequently, they make a mess of the areas surrounding the saw. Install the forward and right drip trays on this saw and nearly all water is trapped and routed back into the tub, with only minor dripping. Most water spray is actually caught at the cutting point by the excellent rubber apron on the back side of the blade guard.

3. This saw does plunge cuts; e.g., for electrical outlets or registers. Without this feature, about the only way to cut a square in the middle of a large tile was to use a portable (e.g., 4.5") wet saw. With this DeWalt, loosen the plunge lock, align the tile under the blade, and lower the blade as it cuts. Do this four times, once per side of the square/rectangle, on each side of the tile, and you've got a clean hole.

4. Powerful direct drive motor. It is loud, but it's also a work-horse. DeWalt made it 15 amps, probably so it can be plugged into virtually any 110v outlet without blowing a breaker. Direct drive means there are no gears to wear out, which why my previous wet saw died.

5. Huge capacity for a saw in this price range and weight. 24" rip and 18" on diagonal. You may not need that much on every job, but it's nice to not be limited by the tool. Pretty impressive to be able to cut 24" x 24" slate. Most amazing thing is cutting a 3.5" thick concrete paver in one pass.

6. The motor easily tilts and locks at 45 or 22.5 (degrees), so cuts are possible without using an accessory cart block. These are the only angles mentioned by DeWalt, because the table has slots to receive the blades for these angles. However, you can actually cut any angle (e.g., on half-inch thick material) between 0 and 45 degrees if you lift the blade and tile above the table so the blade misses those slots.

7. The rolling table has thick rubber bonded to the top, to prevent slipping tiles. A great innovation. The table can be put onto the saw assembly, or removed, quickly and easily. The table has a slide-lock to keep it from coming off the saw and can be "locked" into two other positions, for transporting on the saw assembly.

8. Saw comes with a reversible 45 degree miter which clamps to the table and works well.

9. The excellent water pump is rated at 170 gallons per hour, which is more than adequate. Search on "little giant 518200" via Amazon or Google [Froogle, actually], for more details.

The DW24001 tool stand is designed specifically for this tool. The tub bottom has four molded sections that fit into the stand top. Since I'm tall and wanted the wet saw higher than the DW24001 allows, I designed my own stand.

The tool has adjustable rollers to align the table for sliding smoothness and squareness to the blade. My tool was adjusted perfectly at the factory.

The box this thing comes in is huge. It's very well packed and protected, and there was zero delivery damage to the tool.

Game Changer, March 29, 2005
Reviewer: Luxus (SF Bay Area, CA) - See all my reviews
I have had this tile saw now almost for 2 months and I'm very pleased with it. This is exactly what the doctor ordered for my business. I do bath and kitchen remodeling and when it comes to tiling, this tile saw has changed the ball game drastically. Nowadays I jokingly call the more traditional tile saws as "dinosaws".

IMO; pros in a nutshell: Huge cutting capacity, 26" rip and 18 3/8" diagonally. Fairly light weight, 70 lbs. Smooth and accurate cutting tray. Exceptional water containment, saw can be setup inside a house with a minimal protection. Cons? Nothing major so far. Those little fastening hands on the extra trays are quite delicate and could break if handled roughly?

Excellent Tile Saw, March 2, 2006
Reviewer: Nick Robinson

I purchased a "cheapy" tile saw last year and have been kicking my self ever since. This saw makes perfect, beautiful cuts every time. My only problem with it is having to clean it after the job is done. There are to many small places that fill up with cuttings..

GREAT PRODUCT!!!!!

Dewalt D24000 Tile Saw is great!, February 25, 2006
Reviewer: David Wambolt "dmw"

First of all, this saw is really nice. I recently had purchased a MK Diamond MK-100 tile saw with a 1-1/2hp Baldor motor. I got a good deal on the entire kit with accessories and stands. I used it a few times and was fairly happy with it. However it was a back breaker and awkward to move around with only one person.

I started looking for an alternative and found this Dewalt. I read the reviews and most everything seemed positive. My buddy at work offered to buy my MK-100 from me for just about what I paid for it, so I gave the D24000 a try. I didn't purchase it through Amazon because I got a better price elsewhere. However with the deal going now with $150 off, Amazon's price is right in-line with what I paid.

However with the deal going now with $150 off, Amazon's price is right in-line with what I paid.

Pros:
- Build Quality
- Power
- Table with rubber top
- Tray and stand assembly
- 45 degree miter attachement
- Plunge and miter capabilities
- Water containment
- Easy to break down and move around

Cons:
- Noise
- Somewhat questionable strength of extra water catching trays

This saw is leaps and bounds better than my old but new, MK-100. The only thing I liked better about that saw was that it used a Baldor motor with a belt drive. That means prior to performing a cut, it just ran smoothly and quietly. The Dewalt is direct drive and is quite a bit louder due to the speed in which the motor operates. It does however operate smoothly with little to no vibration. However any person operating equipment such as this should be wearing hearing protection so it's a pretty moot issue, unless your family, friends or customers mind. :)

The Dewalt 24000 has performed flawlessly. The table was set perfectly from the factory, the capacity is great, adjustable swivel head to do miters is REALLY nice. There is not much to fault with this set up that I can tell. A lot of attention to detail went into this product and it shows. From the GFCI plug, to the on-board tool storage - it's design is just sweet. I would not hesitate to buy another D24000. It is by far the best tile saw I've ever used and if my luck holds will provide years of trouble free service. Unless you're used to using very high end tile saws, I don't think you'd be dissapointed with this product. I'm as picky as they come (hehe) and this thing will be with me for years.

 THE BEST TILE SAW I'VE EVER USED, October 15, 2005
Reviewer: Victor G. Diaz

AWESOME TILE SAW THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY.

     I worked in construction for 38  years installing Linoleum Floors, Formica Counter Tops, Ceramic Tile and lots and lots of Carpenter Work.  Now that I have put in my time at the trades I am selling tools because I believe after all the years using them, I am qualified to guide you in finding the right tool for the job.  -  Just for fun here's a picture of a couple of my trucks from my Floor Covering business, also a picture of my garage and my little dog called Marbles.  -  I will post notes here and there throughout the web site on tools and things that I think are important and/or solve problems, based on my experience.  -  When I was young it seemed impossible to finish a job successfully because there would be a part that just couldn't be done.  Later I discovered that when you have all the tools for the job the most difficult project goes smoothly.  -  Also lets face it, having a good set of tools is one of life's greatest pleasures.  Not only that but it is a great boost to your ego when you receive complements a job you have done.
