Dewalt Tile Saw Vs. Harbor Freight Chicago Electric Tile Saw

Video Review


Video Transcript


all right let me show you what we have
here Harbor Freight Chicago electric 2.5
horsepower
full-size 10-inch wet tile saw we’re
gonna do a comparison video here we’ve
got the DeWalt D twenty four thousand
one of the most popular tile saws in the
industry and that’s a one point five
horsepower alright guys let’s put it to
the test
assemble them and show you the pros and
cons of each tile saw
alright guys there you have it we
assembled both sobs D 24,000 by Dewalt
Chicago electric it’s the brick and tile
saw 2.5 horsepower
this is samples fairly quickly and
easily this takes more time a lot more
bolts nuts and that kind of thing so
let’s take a look real quick so here’s
the Harbor Freight Chicago electric as
you can see big size difference you’ve
got a smaller tray here then the DeWalt
but it has a lot of the same features
you’ve got your plunge cut feature here
for plunge cuts also this feature helps
with your miter cuts so it can miter at
45 22 it also can plunge great features
for this little saw here’s the tray
trace slides fairly smooth there is some
wobble in it and I’m sure after some
time that wobble will increase but we’ll
put that to the test we’re gonna cut
some tile today so don’t worry about
that you want to come closer here it’s
guys so you’ve got your fence here this
is for your diagonal cuts we’ve got 45
you’ve got 22 everything in between and
this is your straight fence here if
you’re making you know 5 10 15 20 cuts
of the same measurement insert this
fence and then rip make your cuts
so that’s that let’s take a look at the
DeWalt as you can see it’s a much bigger
much larger saw The Stand is much higher
I’m a tall guy I’m six foot three so
this would probably break my back using
it all day long this is a little more
suited for me I could stand up straight
and you’ve got a giant tray here tray
holds five gallons of water this tray
looks like it holds probably I don’t
know two gallons of water but we’ll go
over that when we get going on cutting
so come take a look at this saw same
features you’ve got your plunge cutting
you’ve got your miter cuts here 22:45
everything in between basic features on
and off here’s the fence I really like
this fence easy to get it out of the way
this is for your diagonal cuts here you
can use it for diagonal and use it for
straight set it and rip as many tiles as
you can and as you can see this saw has
a lot of big trays it contains water
like you don’t even know um we’ve worked
with a lot of different tile saws and
this one contains water better than
anything else and that’s pretty much it
so yeah what we’re gonna do is fill
these saws up plug them in and test them
out see how well they contain water the
noise level see how straight they cut
we’ll just do a basic comparison on
these two saws here we go guys alright
let’s fill these saws with water and cut
some tile here we go
five gallons of water for the DeWalt
Chicago electric two and a half gallons
to fill the tray
all right guys no electricity needed to
run these saws we’re gonna use the
DeWalt power station this thing is a
beast I made a review video on this I’ll
leave it in the link description below
it runs off its weakest links I’ve got
small four amp batteries in here
nevertheless it still kicks ass here we
go will now cut some stone marble mosaic
well there you go guys I don’t know what
it is these are the exact same blades it
seems like this is cutting a lot more
rough than the DeWalt let’s check out
the DeWalt a much cleaner cut on the
DeWalt right here there’s your Chicago
electric alright guys we’ve got a three
foot porcelain plank here we’ve got our
line cut this in half we’re gonna run it
through the Chicago Electric and run it
through the DeWalt see which one cuts
straighter
a quick thing to mention this tray has a
lot of play I don’t know if you could
see that there left right left right
there’s the line it’s got a heavy eighth
of an inch amount of play let’s rip this
porcelain
crack the porcelain let’s try to cross
cut it
had a hard time ripping it but not a
very clean cut on a crosscut as you can
see
fairly clean-cut
got some marble scraps here
not too bad of a job with marble it’s a
pretty clean cut there let’s try the
DeWalt it ran through that much easier
the motor felt like it was much stronger
and obviously a clean cut as well we’ll
cut some stacked quartz
[Music]
not a bad cut at all let’s try the
DeWalt
clean card also alright guys let’s talk
about the pros and cons on these two
tile saws we’ve got the DeWalt d 24000
we’ve got the chicago electric featured
at Harbor Freight right off the bat you
can see the difference in water
retention these trays on the DeWalt
contain water better than pretty much
any saw out there not much down there on
the concrete look at the Chicago
electric it’s a very messy saw you would
probably be able to use a Dewalt D
24,000 indoors Chicago electric no not
indoors take a look at that overspray as
well a lot more overspray on the Chicago
Electric versus the DeWalt stand height
is much taller on this one than it is on
the Chicago electric so real quick on
price this price is out under $400 and
that’s the saw a blade and the stand
this price is out under $800 with a saw
a stand and a blade now obviously Dewalt
a good name brand it’ll last for a very
long time you get a better guarantee as
well even though guys this has 2.5
horsepower and this has 1.5 horsepower
this seems to boggle down a little bit
when going through hard material like
porcelain the cutting capacity is the
same on those saws cuts up to 24 inches
also the water retention is much better
on this obviously it’s got all these
tray extensions this all gets really
messy on the floor as well as overspray
this thing does well on stone but not so
well on hard material like porcelain the
DeWalt can’t cut anything flawlessly now
bow saws have plunge cut features as
well as miter cut features the water
pump on the DeWalt and the sprayer is
much more efficient it sprays on the
blade all around the blade this doesn’t
spray as well to keep that blade cool
this saws more appropriate for a DIY or
a homeowner definitely get your bang for
the buck this one’s more for a tile
contractor when you’re making a living
cutting tile or stone now this is a good
saw for the price under $400 this is a
great saw for the price under $100 well
