Husqvarna's New Masonry, Tile Saws

Husqvarna has introduced the new MS 360 masonry saw with several new features. The company also added two new tiles saws, the TS 70 and TS 90, to its line.

Husq masonry sawThe Husqvarna MS 360 masonry saw has a cutting capacity of 5-inches deep and a 17.25-inch cutting length. The saw is equipped with a patented water containment system, which keeps water, slurry, and debris controlled; delivering a cleaner work piece and work space. The double water splash guard decreases water spray behind the saw and makes cleaning easier.

In addition to cutting up to 5-inches deep, this saw can make different types of cuts as easily as a tile saw. Unique to this masonry saw is the ability to make 22.5 degree and 45 degree bevel cuts by simply rotating the saw head. The saw head can also easily switch between plunge and miter cutting, making it fast and versatile on the job site. The saw is ideally suited for cutting pavers, bricks, stone and concrete block.

“The MS 360 was developed to provide masonry contractors with a tool to increase their efficiency on the job site.  We looked at every angle to develop a useful, practical and efficient saw,” says Mark Michaels, Director of Product Management - Americas.

The saw head can also easily switch between plunge and miter cutting, for versatility.

The TS 70 is able to handle materials up to 32 inches long in a compact, dependable and easy to operate form factor. It can also cut diagonally up to 28 inches or a 20-in. x 20-in. tile.

As the operator pushes the tile toward the saw head, the saw head moves toward the operator. The TS 90 is cuts plank tiles, larger tiles and is also effective on smaller tiles. It behaves like a rail saw with 36-inch rip cuts and diagonally cutting 24-in x 24-in. tiles.

Both saws can be used with either a fixed height or adjustable stand. The fixed height stand allows for easy set-up and transportation due to integrated transport wheels. The adjustable stand with the saw locked in place can also be transported with one hand. The adjustable stand also allows the user to position the saw at various heights or collapse it
with one hand. Both saws come with a Husqvarna Vari-Cut Tile blade for chip-free cutting of porcelain tile, granite, quarry tile or dense floor tile.
