Is it worth looking at getting a bridge tile cutter?

I see that a wet tile saw should cope with 16mm porcelain plaving, but the length I need might push the price up.

The longest slab is 1200mm and I don't plan on any diagonals.

In the grand scheme of things, spending 1200 on a cutter and selling it after for 600 isn't too painfull, if it makes the job a lot less difficult.

Looking at laying about 150sqm in total.

I'd be a bit wary as these thicker porcelains/ceramics we are using for paving (and 16mm is a tad on the slender side, TBH) are a bit awkward to cut wiuth anything other than a dedicated porcelain-cutting blade, and that, in turn, is best attached to a table saw of some form.

If you can find a second-hand table saw for sale, you should be able to recoup what it cost if you sell it on after a few weeks/months. The only real cost to you would be that of acquiring a good quality blade.
