"Good accuracy straight from assembly, and adjustment available if needed. Blade on testing performs really well with various materials.
Let down by lack of accessories such as side supports, front mounting clamp and dust bag, but as I bought the evolution saw stand at the same time this is only a minor issue though without the stand it would be significant.
Cannot comment on reliability as recent purchase, but well made/engineered for the price. Checked against an engineers protractor the positive stop angles and those selected manually appear acceptably accurate for precision work."
"I bought this as I have always wanted a saw, I found this one for a good price and thought it mite have its flaws but I was wrong this thing is brilliant definitely dose what it says on the box and more save your money and buy this one"
"I must admit I didn't really know much about evolution tools until I bout this Mitre saw. And I've had Bosch, Makita & Dewalt and even Used A Milwaukee Mitre and this I can honestly say is better. Bar the festool (as it has unbeatable features) but it is almost as good as that even! The stand is great also very easy to set up an calibration is near perfect. Well done Evo. All you need to make now is a vacuum for extraction."
"I have had this saw for a couple of months and must have made hundreds if not thousands of cuts. The saw is quick and easy to set up and can be adjusted to angles and compound angles in a flash with repeated accuracy with the help of the pre set notches and dials.
I like things to be absolutely true and hence I check every single cut with my square. Every cut to date has remained true!
The supplied blade is coming up to replacement- but has lasted well beyond expected. Like the description says- it will cut through just about anything. An excellent saw and i highly recommend this to anyone."
"Arrived next day as promised. Very impressed with the build quality. Bought together with the Evolution Mitre Saw Stand which is a perfect partner and very sturdy. Can't comment on reliability as only just received but very happy thus far. Good value for money."
"Recently used to cut some pressure treated timber to make wooden planters. The saw was easy to set up with clear instructions. Cuts are accurate out of the box with no adjustment needed. It's a shame that if you want the side support brackets and the dust bag you have to purchase these separately. Overall a quality saw for a quality price."
"Dropped into Screwfix, bought the saw, once home it was straight forward and easy to assemble. I was really impressed with the cutting blade quick and efficient leaving a clean cut edge, no ripped edges. The only disappointment was there was no collection bag for the sawdust which I have had with cheaper saws in the past which is why I have given 4 stars for features. The only reason I have given 3 stars for Reliability is I have only owned it for a week which is not long enough to justify giving it more at present."
"I cant rate this high enough , I have turned a Bungalow into a house which I have been doing for about 9 months and this has cut every bit of timber 8x3 8x2 all the roof trusses and all the wall plates I have used it to cut the tapers on all the concrete roof tiles . I have just used it to cut 26 40mm box section steel balustrades for the stairs .This is all on the same blade !!!! Amazing !!!"
"I purchased the Evolution RAGE3 FP2552 255mm Compound Mitre Saw 230V and the mitre saw stand just after Xmas 2015. I have used them both a lot during the building of a large log cabin style double garage.
I am very impressed with the saw, so too is the Joiner helping me who also used it a lot; He has a top brand saw but was more impressed with my Rage 255mm - particularly the accuracy of the laser which makes life so easy setting things up, and then of course the multi-use blade that simply cuts through anything. The saw is well built, no flimsy bits or concerns as to durability, this saw will last a long time and I am very impressed.
The same goes for the saw stand, it is very sturdy and versatile, no swaying - folds up neatly and easy to carry. The saw just clamps onto the stand with the supplied 2 quick release handles - a doddle.
Only down side is that it doesn't come with the extractor bag which I had to order direct from manufacturer.
Overall very pleased with the quality and performance of this kit and would recommend both the saw and the stand."
