"I was after a chop saw/ mitre saw for building some racking for my garage and to build a shed for the garden, had a good look through different companies and different ranges and this came out on top for me.
My main reasons I selected this saw are;
1, click and collect by screw fix meant I did not need to wait for a delivery and miss the best October weather I can remember!
2, the laser alignment is super helpful, although it is difficult to see in the daylight
3, a good quality blade that I can use on steel and Ali, aswell as wood
4, price was well within my budget and the build quality is up there with the better makes
5, warranty included in this saw was one of the better ones on comparison, so should there be an issue I am sure it will get resolved quite easily
6, 230v so no need to set it up through my inverter - however I did notice they do a 110v if people require
So all in all I am very impressed with my purchase, it definitely saved me a lot of time, cut through 2 x 4 like it was a hot knife through butter and I would definitely recommend. As for reliability only time will tell but I am feeling very comfortable that I will have no issues"
"Really good value, easy to assemble and makes a very clean cut. Decided to make some posh wooden furniture. Have now got a rustic bookcase. However, all the cuts were perfect (even if i wasn't). Would recommend this saw to anyone. Have now ordered accessories. Screwfix service and assistance was second to none."
"bought this for a large project at home where I am putting an extension, double garage and two double dormers on my bungalow. Though an electrician by trade, am quite handy at other trades. So got a builder to do the groundwork and brickwork, but doing all the joinery, plumbing (not gas) and electrics myself, with assistance of friends. Had huge amount of joists to cut so needed something that would cope with larger sizes of timber. I already have a Evolution hand circular saw, that I am well pleased with so got this, along with a stand. It cuts true and effortlessly and would highly recommend it. It's making the job got so easy"
"Good product a large cut off this size of blade & plenty of power from its 2000w motor . the only criticism is it does not come with the side support bars & dust bag are not supplied & Screwfix dont stock them."
"An excelent piece of kit at a reasonable price. I cannot really comment on reliability as I only bought this unit a month ago, but it does come with a 3 year warranty. I did not have any alignment issues as suggested by other reviewers. I bought this unit to replace a previous McAlister model that expired, to cut a specific angle on about 170 paver blocks, with a diamond wheel, which it did with great success. I have since used it to cut various pieces of timber and the supplied TCT blade cut very efficiently. My only slightly negative comment would be that the timber supports and dust bag have to be purchased seperately from Evolution. Why aren't they included?"
"Quick and easy to assemble. The supplied assembly video wasn't needed but good for peace of mind. I particularly like the soft start, the saw doesn't lurch into action like my old Erbauer. The clamp assembly is a bit weak but I wasn't expecting much at this price point."
"Excellent as always wanted one and after extensive research picked this.Went together very well.i would recommend the stand as it makes it a complete saw.Also very happy with performance so far but still learning."
"I bought a 10" Wolf sliding mitre saw and the build quality was poor, the base had an hairline crack and it was returned without cutting anything. This saw is far better quality and I actually got to use it.
"after my previous compound saw failed I was fortunate to be near a screwfix outlet which had an Evolution Rage3 FP2552 just the compound saw I needed. Then found it was at a value for money price. After purchase it was put to work right away and I found it easy and quick to assemble and fulfilled all my expectations the work done with the saw looked perfect. I would recommend this outlet and product to all my contacts."
