    Got a bargain job lot of tools off gumtree the other day & was interested to find a Genesis dry cutter in there.
    Never heard of them but seems OK quality for a budget cutter.
    Anybody else got any experience with them?
    Bearings roll good on solid rails, guides are useless and extension legs look a flimsy and missing one rubber foot. Takes RUBI cutter & spring bed seems of decent(ish) quality.
    Also while I'm on it anybody got or used a Montolit or a Battipav?
    Ta,
    Jim.

    The gennys ok as a back up, couldn't get through some porcelain on saturday so wouldn't depend on it. Been playing with a monti today & am pretty sold on their new stuff. Sigma or a monti for my next upgrade of the toys! Moving away from the Rubi stuff unfortunatly, think they need to up their game a little. Battipav look good too but no one up north stocks them for a test drive.

    & on the genesis; could really feel the bars bending way beyond anything I'd be comfortable doing any work in front of a customer with!

    I do not recommend battipav.
    Bought 2 and sold immediately.
    Better rubi, than battipav.

    I had a genesis dry cutter for nearly a year, struggled with some porcelain tiles and eventually the bearings popped on it and it was not cutting straight.
    I went and had a look at a montolit and bought the masterpuima 63, what a cutter I highly recomend

    They're simply not as good as Sigmas I'll bet will be a large part of Antonio's answer and he'd be absolutely correct.

    The xpro 160 cuts well,
    But the metric bar are three screwed pieces.
    And is very dancer. We must always mark the cuts, to be sure.
    Xpro 60 .... left me speechless ...
    All the cuts, banana, curved.
    I spent 2 hours of time adjusting the screws without results.
    It can not be compared to montolit.
    Montolit the can compare to sigma.
