The Stihl concrete saw can be used for wet cuts and dry cuts. There are a few differences when it comes to these two types of cuts. When you are cutting masonry with the water attachment, you should make sure that the water is not running when the blade is not turning. The blade can soak up some of the water and cause an imbalance in the blade. You should shut off the water before the wheel stops turning.

A way to make sure that the idle speed is adjusted correctly is to let the saw idle and see if the blade is turning. If the blade is turning at idle speed it needs to be adjusted. A saw running at an incorrect idle speed can cause injury.
