MORENO VALLEY, CA -- iQ Power Tools, manufacturer of premium power tools with integrated dust collection systems, recently introduced the iQ228Cyclone®, designed to cut ceramic, porcelain, marble and stone -- dry.

The iQ228Cyclone is a 7-inch, dry-cut tabletop tile saw specifically designed for professional tile setters and contractors. With the world’s first fully integrated dust control technology, it allows for tile to be cut inside or outside with no water. Additionally, it is lightweight and compact for easy transport to and from jobsites.

Being 100% compliant with the new OSHA standard on respirable silica dust, the iQ228Cyclone was developed to eliminate problems caused by cutting with water. The saw uses a three-stage filtration system, which captures up to 99.5% of the dust. All of the dust from the cutting point passes through this filtration system and is then captured in the dust tray for easy clean up. This dust tray handles up to 5 pounds before it needs to be discarded.

  • Stage 1: Heavy Debris Filtration
  • Stage 2: Cyclonic Filtration (Fine Particles)
  • Stage 3: iQ Dura Bond Filter Cartridge (Super Fine Particles)

The new iQ228Cyclone has the ability to produce a depth cut up to 1 1/4 inch and can handle an 18-inch rip with rolling table or 24 inches+ with locked table.

In addition, iQ has introduced the new Tru-Cut® System for extreme accuracy while cutting. The Tru-Cut System is an integrated measuring system that provides consistant and accurate cuts. It is designed with 1-inch premeasured increments across the width of the iQ228Cyclone’s rolling table as well as presets for 45- and 22-degrees cuts. It also includes two removable fences.

One of those fences is the truly innovative iQ Micro Fence. This removable and adjustable fence allows the user to adjust each cut by 1/32 inch.

“The iQ228Cyclone is a complete gamechanger,” said Jim Mackall, president of iQ Power Tools. “This lightweight tabletop saw eliminates water from tile-cutting, helping contractors to set tile smarter, safer and more efficiently. They can cut right where they are working; saving time, money and messy cleanups.”
