Aquacut and Tilers Tools (divisions of Aquacut Limited) were presented with the prestigious Service Provider and Manufacturer of the Year award at the Association of Professional Landscapers awards ceremony in London.
The judges commented;
Aquacut have been providing precision waterjet cutting services for many industries for many years, but with Tilers Tools they managed to support a lot of landscapers with the issues they have been facing in regards to cutting porcelain. Porcelain has been an issue for some contactors since day 1, but Jim Stott (Jim’s our National Sales and Marketing Director and is well known amongst landscapers and tilers) has been extremely supportive in supporting members with their requirements. He has also dedicated a lot of time training apprentices and WSUK competitors in how to correctly cut paving. Thank you for your support.
It continues to be a delight to work with so many talented professionals in the landscape industry. We are of course over the moon to have been recognised by the APL.

A regular operator error when using wet saws is not dressing the blade frequently. This means the diamonds are not properly presented to the material being cut, the operator then tries to force the blade through the material and ends up shortening the life of the blade
Dressing stones are very cheap to buy, for example see our selection here
Cheshire Construction pick up their Pikus 105 from Tilers Tools
Phil Symms of Cheshire Construction & Coatings couldn’t wait to get his new Raimondi Pikus 105 wet saw delivered the next day. So he collected it in his Discovery! The PIKUS is an ideal machine for the work Phil’s tiler wishes to do in cutting porcelain tiles circa 600×600.
Staff at Tilers Tools were amazed when Phil opened the back of his vehicle as it was already full of tools and equipment. However as the second photo shows, he managed to get the PIKUS 105 and all his tools in the back – talk about driving a TARDIS-like vehicle!
Cheshire Construction undertake building refurbishments and Phil can be contacted on 01942 74441, email; email@example.com

The sliding motor assembly with cast aluminium housing has four re-adjustable pulleys (double bearings). A heavy duty dual nozzle water pump provides superior blade calling. Legs are telescopic with an anti-collapse device and wheels for easy transport. Blade guards pivot to remain parallel with tile for maximum cutting depth and float to provide extra safety in operation. The PIKUS comes with a 250mm diamond disc.
Tilers Tools announces new distribution arrangement with IMEX – Tilers Tools is delighted to announce it’s latest distribution agreement with IMEX, the world leading manufacturer of laser levels and measuring systems for the tiling, landscaping and building markets.

Stuart Middleton Managing Director and Jim Stott, Sales and Marketing Director have been on the lookout for top quality laser levels, measuring systems and tape measures.

Their dedication to high quality manufacture and great design makes their tools and equipment ideal for professionals in the tiling, landscaping and building sectors.

We had a visit from professional tilers while we were setting up the IMEX display stand and sold three of the top of the range green laser levels before we had finished setting up, such is the stand-out quality of the IMEX equipment. The LX3D is available here
Stuart Bray, owner of SB Solutions, is increasingly in demand for domestic tiling jobs around Cheshire. Stuart decided he needed to buy a new Raimondi Pikus 130 wet saw to help him achieve a professional finish with his prestigious projects. Stuart visited us in our Appleton warehouse and examined the various saws we offer. He thought long and hard between the ZOE 130 and the Pikus 130 wet saw and decided the Pikus 130 was the machine for him. Both are excellent machines which are capable of years of faithful service. Jim Stott, our National Sales and Marketing Director offered to deliver the machine but after Jim had demonstrated the Pikus’s capabilities, Stuart was keen to start using the machines on site, so Jim helped load the machine into Stuart’s pick up!

The POWER RAIZOR is for use on the RAIZOR cutting system above. This assembly comes complete with 110V grinder, diamond blade and various tools. The POWER RAIZOR will make light work of dry cutting tiles. The assembly can be set up in pre-selected angles of 90 degrees for straight cuts, 45 degrees for mitres and 180 degrees for horizontal cutting or for attaching a diamond wheel to enable bullnosed edges to be created
From early demonstrations to professional tilers there is great excitement about the products and these systems are flying off the shelves, such that supply is struggling to keep up with demand.
