A 100mm angle grinder is used for that kind of work. It can also be used for "L" shaped cuts and for making holes. It is usually being used dry and more rarely used wet

if your blade is newer or even well used,one way to make it cut better is find a used brick or a piece of a concrete block and cut through them,what really works best is a carborundum stone that setters use to hone cut edges of tile,you can get 1 at any tile store or home depot for 5 bucks. another trick is to lightly pull up on the table towards end of cut, if they keep breaking at end of cut, and you have the gauge set simply flip tile up side down and start your cut then back it off flip it over and cut through. all saw cuts leave minor chips on cut edge, we always stone cuts. cutting a brick cleans debris off blade. MAKE SURE WATER IS PRESENT WHEN CUTTING

SOURCE: tile saw not cutting straight
Sometimes a blade that is set deep enough will walk in this manner, especially if it is a thin kerf blade like the MK Hotdog blade.
Also, a blade which has worn unevenly will do this too.

SOURCE: I have a 10" ridgid
With bigger tiles I have to cut more than half way, and then turn tile around and cut last bit from other direction.
You might be able to cut half way down tile, and then move tile forward on tray.
My wheels come to a stopper and don't run off the track, so my saw is different than yours.
