TOWSON, MD (January 2, 2018) – PORTER-CABLE® announces new, innovative cordless and corded table top tile saws for professionals and DIYers. Both the 20V MAX* Table Top Wet Tile Saw (PCC780LA) and 7” Table Top Wet Tile Saw (PCE980) feature a sliding cart, providing accuracy and stability through every cut. Easily transported from worksite to worksite, each tile saw has a 17-inch on-table cut capacity and is ideal for installing backsplashes and shower tiles.

The 20V MAX* Table Top Wet Tile Saw offers cordless convenience for users seeking to limit cords and the need for as many available outlets.

The saw is lightweight at just 27 pounds with the battery, and with its unique carrying handle the unit is easily transported and stored. Sold as a kit for $249 MSRP, the 20V MAX* Table Top Wet Tile Saw includes a 4.0Ah battery, charger, 7” porcelain tile blade, miter square, blade wrench, and blade/splash guard.

The corded 7” Table Top Wet Tile Saw features many of the same benefits as the 20V MAX* Table Top Wet Tile Saw. It is lightweight, powerful, and has the same unique carrying handle. Benefiting the user who doesn’t require as much portability yet still demands performance, this corded unit is powered by a 1.0 maximum Hp motor and provides consistent and steady power on every cut. Also sold as a kit, the 7” Table Top Wet Tile Saw is available for $199 MSRP and includes a 7” porcelain tile blade, miter square, blade wrench, and blade/splash guard.
