New Tile Cutter from DeWalt0

DeWALT recently announced the launch of its new 4-3/8″ Wet and Dry Hand Tile Cutter (model DWC860W) – coming out in January 2011.

This lightweight (just over 6 lbs.) tile cutter has a 10.8 AMP motor that cranks at a whopping 1,300 watts and 13,000 RPMs—which is quite a bit of power for a tool of this size.

The blade has a diamond matrix design, specially suited for cutting granite and porcelain.  A 45-degree bevel capacity allows for precise cutting with a 1-3/8″ depth of cut—which is deep enough to cut through 1-1/4″ thick countertop material. A 13’ water tube feeds water nozzles for wet cutting.  The ever-important ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) cord is also provided.  For those of you not in the know, this is essentially an emergency safety switch that keeps the user from being fried if there is an electric current leak.

The ergonomically designed handle is coated with a rubber overmold to make it comfortable during extended use.  The handle also sports a lock-on button for longer cuts and contains dust seals to reduce the chances of damage from flying dust and debris.

DeWALT projects the DWC860W will retail for around $170.  If a tile upgrade is on your to-do list this year, watch for the release of this tool later this month.
