How to cut ceramic floor tiles?

I have purchased several packs of Ceramic Floor Tiles 400mm x 400mm for a bathroom floor retiling.


I have tried cutting these tiles with two Bunnings cutters (a DTA Tungsten Blade and Wheel grout remover and cutter) and neither even scratches the surface of the tiles. The tiles are 6mm thick ceramic CMNTO TAU MATT I/N: 0012635.


I expect I might need to purchase a QEP 540mm Promaster Tile Cutter from Bunnings, but I will not proceed until I have some assurance that this machine will do the job. $285 is a lot to invest in an inadequate tool.


Could you please advise. 

Kind of a Big Deal

Re: How to cut ceramic floor tiles?

I played with this earlier - absolutely brilliant!

Not so sure why there are so many negative views with its big brother on the Bunnings website? They keep mentioning "chipping" on the edges?

Maybe my old tiles don't have much glaze on them?

However I do notice it leaves a small tag at the end, when cutting from the left.

Any thoughts as to why?

About to rain so I must pack up...
