We are currently experiencing a problem with the target TA10100 wet saw. It will start up and immediately shutdown. The local authorized tool repair said that the part encased on the top of the Baldor motor is called a capacitor. we have yet to find out if this is the cause of the problem. Hope the information helps you because so far it hasn't helped us.

As long as the blade is rated for concrete/masonary (depending on the material being cut, and the blade is a 5 1/2 in, there should be no issues with it/them being on your saw. Every company would like to see their own products used, but that isn't always practicle. Be sure to read the lable as some blades have a specific ratational direction for installation.

Hope this helps.

To start with what size circut are you trying to run the saw on? What ever the amperage is on the saw will draw almost 3 Xs the amperage rating of the saw on start up. If the circut is a 20 amp the breaker should hold long enough to start the saw. Also the saw should be the only thing running on the circut at the time. A 1-1/2 hp motor is a good size one aproximately 15.2 amps If you circut breaker is twenty amps and you still pop the breaker you may want to convert the motor to run on 220 volts as that will drop the load to approx. 7.6 amps Youcan run the saw on a 20 amp. 220 volt circut with no problem unless there is a problem with the motor. If the outlet is the only outlet on the circut it is an easy change to convert the circut.

It's probably time for a new blade. If you are using a toothless diamond coated blade it can be difficult to see that the diamonds have been rubbed off. It drifts because it cuts more easily on the side of the blade where you have more diamond left. Be sure to use enough water to keep the blade from shedding it's diamonds too soon.

If you have access to an ammeter, check the draw when the saw starts. I don't know what the rating of the saw is but I doubt it's more than 30A. If the startup draw is more than 30A the saw may have a short in the starting circuit. If it's less than 30A the breaker may be bad; change the breaker and retry.
