Default Tile saw/paver saw needed

I thought I had found an MK wet saw on clist that I wanted, but went to look at it this morning and it was junk.

I guess I can rent one from home depot, but that's likely going to add up. They run 4hr or 24hr rentals, but the only time I have to work is after 5:30 and then I really need to knock off by 7:30 so the neighbors don't complain. Saturdays are the same deal, neighbors won't let me start until 10 and I'm sure I need multiple days.

So, open to buying/renting/borrowing a quality tool that can handle 2.5" thick brick pavers. It seems the common one is the MK-101 or MK-1080.

I have a brand new tile saw with stand, still in the box. I'll pull it out see what it is and if it will cut 2.5 pavers. Thinking it was an 8 inch blade. Any interest?

Is it insanely heavy? If not, it probably isn't up to that task. Solid brick pavers are pretty intense on a saw. I'm assuming I will eat an entire blade for what I want to do.
These are the two available to rent at HD http://www.mkdiamond.com/tile/saw_101pro.html

I recently did some sandstone flatwork in my yard that required cutting some stones to fit. An 18$ diamond blade from Home Depot mounted on my 80$ handheld circular saw worked great. I wasn't doing any precision cuts but it sure beats trying to chisel something to size.

I considered that. I have a "cheap" circular saw I picked up at a yard sale that I could sacrifice, but I'll be cutting blind. I have a LOT of pavers that need to be cut on a 45 degree angle.
