DITEQ Diamond Tools & Equipment has introduced a portable precision tile/stone saw - the Rocket 3600.

The Rocket is specially designed to handle the larger stone and tile slabs commonly used in commercial and upper-scale residential jobs. It cuts very accurate - to within five thousandths of an inch - making it excellent for jobs where an out-of-aligned cut becomes painfully obvious, where little or no grout lines are specified, or whenever expensive materials are being used and waste must be minimized, reports the company.

The Rocket’s 24-inch square cutting cart has an extension that accommodates slabs up to 24 x 36 inches. It permits rip cuts up to 38 inches and rotates up to 90 degrees for precise angle cuts. The cart rides on six roller bearings located inside a rigid extruded aluminum track for smooth, precise cuts. The cutting head pivots or “rocks” to enable plunge cuts and accommodate operator comfort. The powerful 1.5 horsepower Leeson motor is located below the table for a smoother, quieter operation. All this capacity and precision comes in a portable saw that is easy to set up, tear down and move around the jobsite, according to DITEQ.

“With the growing use of large tile and more expensive stone materials, the time for a saw like the Rocket has come,” said Dan Steiner, President of DITEQ. “It’s not for everyone, but contractors who get into these larger jobs absolutely love the combination of precision, capacity and portability the Rocket delivers.”
