Default 10" Tile saw Canada $299 w/ blade and stand

Hi Guys,

I just bought a 10" tile saw from princess auto, it is regular price 399 but to my surprise is was on sale. This store is like Canadas harbour freight. There are locations all across Canada. Can anyone tell me if this is comparable with the hf one?

heres the link, the price is 299 instead of 399

Sure looks like the same saw, but different paint job.

Same power, same attachments. HF is selling it for 260 on their web site. There was an add a few weeks ago where it was going for 199. Considering you got the stand, I would say its a good price.

I just noticed that mine only will cut a depth of 3" while hf does 3-3/4, will this be a problem for me cutting the bricks in one go?

3" will be fine unless you are cutting 4 1/2". Most of the cuts are 2 1/2" on the flat side. But the HF saw won't do 4 1/2" either. With practice I was able to flip the brick over and make that cut come pretty close. That was noticeably harder in my feeble efforts to make compound cuts.
