"I am very happy with this saw, I was a little concerned from reading the 1* reviews about the alignment of the blade and it making true and square cuts. However, if you read the instruction manual there is a procedure for aligning it all perfectly. Mine needed a minor tweak when first set up, but I would far rather have something that is designed so you can adjust things than relying on it being perfect forever.
have just finished chopping a pile of timber ripped out of our house during a refurbishment. It took 2 straight days of nothing but cutting, I probably did 10's of thousands of cuts, hit nails, jammed the blade, and generally abused the saw. At the end of it all it is still perfectly square and ready to use for detailed work.
The only criticism I have is that the laser is a bit wide, again the alignment can be adjusted but it is too fat to be that useful."
"Used this saw to install my laminate floor very good performance and the cuts where accurate and clean. Very good value for money and the blade is very handy as it cuts anything. Would definitely recommend. Build quality is second to none and for the price it performances like the more expensive saws."
"This is a fantastic bit of kit! Out the box it's very easy assembled. Solid base, good feel with overall quality. This Saw is smooth, easy to use, and in my opinion faultless in every way! I've made everything from planters to door frames and light sheds with ease using this powerful machine. Get down to ScrewFix Wigan, staff are spot on and know thier stuff. Great Buy, Highly RECOMMEND."
"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."
