"I've got a Rubi TS40 that I have used extensively for years which is excellent, but that range is around double this price. I needed a larger cutter for some 45cm floor tiles and, having suffered cheap cutters in the past settled on this one. It's an entry level model, with some bits being made in plastic (the measuring aids, not the important bits). I also found it harder to view the cutting blade. However, these are just nitpicking. The cut quality is excellent and dead straight and the breaking action works well. I would never buy anything other than Rubi stuff again, although doubt I'll ever need to as even this 'cheap' model feels like it'll last forever. Case is very sturdy too, with plenty of room to slide in small tiling tools such as nibblers, etc."
"This is a very sturdy product that comes in a hard case. One of the plastic bits I didn't need did snap off when I accidentally stept on the cutter. Would by again though as it cuts perfectly well, even when taking off tiny strips off tiles."
"If you're looking for an easy to transport tile cutter, this is the one for you. It comes in a nice plastic case with a handle which makes it easy to pack away without damaging anything around it. Has served me well so far."
"Needed a good tile cutter for my bathroom refurbishment. Not the cheapest and not the most expensive, but did the job very well. Used it for cutting 500mm ceramic tiles which made the whole process easy and effortless. I would thoughly recommend this tool, a professional job for a tiling amateur."
"Having used and purchased numerous tile cutters previously this is by far the best tile cutter I have used both manual and motorised. Only one critizisem it wont cut 600mm tiles lengthways other than that one score and click and your tile is cut with a nice neat crisp edge."
"had numerous star cutters over the years ( different sizes - they last forever ) and I realise they're expensive - but you get what you pay for. For the DIYer or tradesman - its a great piece of kit ( good case too) - will have to remember to look after this one a little better -- ie clean it after use and it'll last you a lifetime!"
"Looked all over for reviews of a tile cutter to do 450mm tile, found this one great for the diy jobber.Needs to be on a sturdy bench/table.Only a slight drawback it could do with a bit more support at the side to avoid the tiles tipping when measuring.Appart from that i cant fault it."
"Brought this tile cutter to lay 2 x bathroom floor tiles was superb cut brilliant and also light so easy to handle. havent had it long so cant really comment on the reliability of it but I think it will stand the test of time."
"Needed to replace my old tile cutter for a large tilling job just before Xmas. Decided on the Rubi brought extra gold cutting wheels as a precaution in case tile's wore the wheel quickly, no problem there. I work with my daughter and she felt very confident working with it even with small cuts. Great kit."
"After a lot of sheaching of the screwfix catalogue I decided on the Rubi. I needed the larger model for cutting bigger tiles but with 20% off it helped on the wallet anyway when I first used it I couldn't have been more pleased, it cuts straight, true and without any effort at all, it was very easy to use compared to my £25 Plasplug model, I must say it's far far superior but well worth the extra money. What can I say should have got one years ago."
"Although I do have an electric wet tile cutter which is fine it can also be a little slow and I wanted something I could rely on for doing the quick straight line cuts needed in most situations. I went with other reviews on this and I have to say so far I am absolutely delighted with the Rubi, well made and accurate. Just one run with the blade and the tile cuts perfectly saving time and effort. Worked perfectly straight from the box and comes with a nice firm and tidy plastic box to store it in. I now use the electric cutter only for angles and am more than happy with my purchase. For an occasional tiler absolutely perfect."
"Having used the cheaper manual cutters and an electric tile saw in the past. I came across some tiles that neither of my usual tools could cut. Purchased this and it solved my problems. I would recommend this to anyone who does tiling as I do, on the odd occasion it will do exactly what it says it will do. I am not a tiler I am a joiner so it suits my purposes fine."
"I bought this when tiling a shower room as my old tile cutter was well past it's use by date. It was a bog standard cutter from one of the big DIY shops and was a bit iffy on accuracy of cut and snapping clean, so I decided to treat myself and get something good. Rubi has a good name so I went for this cutter. It's had quite a bit of use on the shower room and all I can say is that it's been worth every penny. It is 100% accurate and snaps completely clean, even on thin cuts that other cutters wouldn't manage to snap clean, which is probably down to the design of the snapping bracket. It makes cutting really easy. The cutting blade is adjustable for height and thickness of tiles, which is great, just remember to keep the handle tightened up to hold the cutting blade in place. Excellent tool and so easy to use."
"Bought this 6 months ago and have used on a number of jobs, and have just bought it again after I had it stolen. Clean cut and easy to use, but the ruler on both cutters was very flimsy, and about 2.5mm out, so never used it. Comes in a strong case."
"First attempt at tiling this weekend - I'd underestimated the amount of cutting I needed to do and my wet cutter wasn't up to it. Some quick research and a look at the reviews on here led me to this cutter and I can't say I'm disappointed. Very easy to use, did 50ish cuts (10mm porcelain tile) with only one small chip. More expensive than a cheapo one but I expect it to last well. Comes with a very sturdy carry case as well."
"I was dreading tiling the shower... and was considering a tile saw to get clean cuts near the ceiling but on balance decided on a manual, less messy machine. Ruby seems to get good reviews and you can change the adjustable cutting wheel. Job done - great straight cuts. the plastic support is not great but put two 3mm chips on each side of the tile to keep it steady. Remove these before you break off the cut. Ok for cutting a 15mm strip as well."
"Just spent five days solid tiling a wet room. Needed a new cutter as my old one had failed and chose this one because of the reviews. It has been excellent. Nice sideways support for the wider tiles. Very easy to make a quick accurate cut. I didn't have a single failed cut at all."
