When it comes to cutting masonry units, you have several choices-a right angle grinder, a cut-off saw, a paver saw, a portable masonry table saw, or a full-size masonry table saw. The masonry table saw has three distinct advantages: greater operator safety, better cutting control, and higher production capacity.

Though it may require a couple of workers to load and unload, a masonry table saw provides a stable, safe work surface and can be wheeled around the jobsite. Some saws now have forklift brackets for placement. Table saws can cut either dry or wet, with a diamond blade or an abrasive blade, using a gas engine or an electric motor.

Although all saws are inherent safety risks, a table saw minimizes the dangers in comparison with hand-held saws. One benefit of a masonry table saw is the ability to easily switch from wet cutting to dry cutting.

Masonry table saws help minimize operator fatigue, which increases safety. The saw operator can use either the handle grip or foot pedals to lower the blade, or can lock the head into a stationary position and push the material toward the blade.

A saw with a pivoting head supports not only the blade but also the weight of the engine or motor. Some saws have a metal-to-metal contact at the pivot point, which can wear over time and require more effort.
