Which cutoff saw would you buy?
We are getting ready to retire two Stihl TS400 gas powered cut off saws with diamond blades. We use them primarily to cut concrete, pavers and retaining wall blocks and cut wet 99% of the time. We have had several problems with these saws over the years and are looking at trying out another brand. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Just curios, what kind of problems are you having with the Stihl's? Partner saw are pretty popular among contractor's and a lot lighter.

getting a good cutoff saw
I have to agree that Partner is a good cut off saw...You do want one that's light to handle and has the water system setup on it as well...Many places you can't run these saws dry cause of the dust they dig up...Do look at the plate telling where it was made as some are not as good as others...

But...I have uses Stihl brand tools and liked them , had no issues with them either and we have a good dealer to service them here...
