Porter Cable Cordless Tile Saw…Enough Power?

The Porter Cable cordless tile saw could solve many problems.

First, corded saws can be dangerous – who hasn’t tripped over one?

Second, portability and ease of use are great for small tile jobs, e.g. subway tile.

We take a look at this cordless tile saw, do some tests, and let you decide if you think it’s worth a look.

Let’s dive in!

Right away we noticed how easy this saw is to pick up.

It’s not that heavy at roughly 30 pounds – seriously, bags of thin-set are 40 to 50 pounds!

Four rubberized legs on each corner stabilize the saw on countertops or floors.

This saw includes a 20V Max 4.0Ah battery, charger, and 7″ diamond blade.

It would be cool if Porter Cable provided two batteries, it’s questionable whether one batter will suffice for big tile jobs.

Unfortunately we haven’t tested the charge time for this 20V battery but will definitely do that down the road.

We recommend cutting scrap tile a few times to wear in the blade. Also, cutting scrap tile allows the user to get use to how this saw performs.

    Jeff I got one that is corded and it really does a good job cutting my 2×2 sheet of shower floor tile, I also have an Ishii Big clinker tile cutter that make quick smooth cuts of my 12×24 floor tiles, so I guess I have the best of both worlds

    1. Yes you do! Sweet tool setup, this little saw has a good footprint for small spaces. That plus the Ishii make a great tile tool couple
