We recently met with a well known, national supplier of paving. We demonstrated the ZOE wet saw (or bridge saw) and left them with a model to use for themselves.
Results were great! And their judgement?
it is quiet
it has a strong build quality is a lot less messy than other brands they’d tried,
the cutting quality is impressive
overall that it is the best bridge saw they have experienced.
As a result they were so impressed that they bought one for their own use.
The photos show samples of the sort of paving the company and their clients need to cut. The Zoe wet saw cuts as cleanly as a whistle and with minimum effort.
Zoe – for the ultimate cutting experience
ZOE 105, ZOE 130 and ZOE 150. This is by far the most popular wet saw we sell and has had great reviews from our clients – a national paving supplier described the ZOE Wet Saw as the best wet saw they had ever seen. The ZOE Wet Saw has a powerful 2.2HP motor, capable of cutting really challenging materials such as granite and thick porcelain tiles. Because of this it is fast becoming a favourite with landscapers as well as tilers. The ZOE has the removable tank, uses a 350mm diameter diamond blade and will cut through 120mm thick material on a single pass.

Steve at Pro-Tilers UK Limited is a fan of Raimondi gear. Here he is using the RLS Raimondi Levelling System. The RLS Raimondi Levelling System for leveling large and small format tools is easy to use, leads the market and has many loyal followers, but beware of cheap imitations.
Steve says that “The RLS Raimondi Levelling System for leveling tiles is easy to use, saves time, reduces waste and is great for large and small format tiles of all thicknesses”. There is a link to Steve’s webpage at the bottom of this blog.
Raimondi Levelling System (R.L.S.) is a revolution in the tile setting. In addition to ensuring the proper leveling of tiles, this system helps to speed up the tile setting process. R.L.S. is strongly recommended when installing flexible, large format, heavy or low-thickness tiles (3/5 mm; 1/8″- 3/16″).
The RLS Floor Kit provides all the tools you need to use the Raimondi Levelling System. It consists of 1 pair of special traction-adjustable pliers for floor covering allowing quick and easy insertion of the wedge into the clip and optimising pressure on the tile. 100 wedges and 100 1.5mm clips are provided for use with tiles of thickness 3 – 12mm. RLS is also the quickest and easiest to remove: spacers can be kicked gently to remove them from floor, without the need for a special tool.
The use of the pliers is suggested for facilitating and speeding up the insertion of the wedge in the clips. It also optimizes the pressure on the tile. This means that the RLS Raimondi Levelling System for leveling large and small format tools is easy to use

WolstanHolme using Raimondi Vacuum Cups from Tilers Tools for their large format tiles – another Tilers Tools fan!
These are a pair of vacuum suction cups for use with the Raimondi Free-Cut Cutting System. The vacuum cups hold material securely in place. The cups are activated by pumping and a red band shows when the vacuum is reducing. The vacuum is easily removed through the simple press of a button.

The Raimondi T-Move is designed for handling large SMOOTH tiles and slabs up to 320 x 160cm. It has telescopic profiles allowing variable extension for maximum versatility. Once attached, the T-Move’s sturdy construction means that slabs can easily be pulled from crates or pallets for smooth and safe handling. Handles have to positioning options to adapt to the height of the edge of the crate. Provided with 6 vacuum suction cups (150mm diameter) and safety hooks to prevent the slab from sliding down.
Please note that the T Move system is designed for applying to slabs while they are on a firm base and in a horizontal position. Downward pressure should be applied to the vacuum cups when pumping them to create the suction. The system is not designed to be applied to tiles in the vertical position, such as when they are on an A Frame, however once correctly applied on the horizontal, the slab can be gently lifted onto the vertical position, checking the vacuum cups periodically that they are maintaining suction.
