"I got this a few months ago on a deal, its one of the best buys I have made. Cuts really well. Just find its very easy not to get a straight cut you just have let it do the cutting. I also got the tile cutting blade and re tiled my kitchen and hall way floor.
Would buy again.

Top piece of kit.
09-Jul-2009
By
, London
"Having priced around for a cut-off saw for metal and a separate mitre saw for wood, I found this product at Screwfix that does both for a third of what I nearly spent.
Its first job for me was on steel. 50mmX50mm hollow section and 75mmX6mm flat, both of which it cut easily with hardly any sparks or burr, from that to trenching and mitres in oak with accurate and clean cuts.(Although I do wonder how long I'll get away with that!) Replacement blades are quite reasonably priced too so not a big thing to buy a spare, use one for metal and one for wood.
My only slight criticism of the saw is that it takes up a bit more space than some of its much more expensive competition, that said it does have a bigger cutting capacity than most of its competitors and very few of them do all that this does, so it could be seen as an acceptable trade-off.
Solid and versatile, its a top piece of kit for its price and one of the best purchases I've made in a long while.

Right Choice !
06-Feb-2009
By
, Trowbridge,Wilts.
"As a DIY & not professional I became confused by all the different choices & nearly took advantage of some of the saws in some of the sales.
However after reading some of the Evolution Rage reviews I decided it was better to pay full price & buy a more versatile saw.I am very pleased with it,it is easy to use.I have only used it to cut wood,but it even cut through freshly cut(wet sap) tree logs for firewood easily.Nice to have the metal option as who knows what may come up?
Only downside is these things do take up quite a bit of room.Recommended.

Fanatstic bit of kit
14-Nov-2008
By
, Essex
"Probably one of favorite on site tools.
Set up the adjustable cutting edges correctly and you have everything you would expect from a top of the range saw.
It literally cuts everthing. I have had metal trunking, ductwork, timber, plastics and even metal bars get chopped by this saw. For the price, don't look any further.
The in built dust extractor bag is pretty useless though. Not exactly a big deal though."

"I am the owner of a building company who had been pestered by one of my employees numerous times to give evolution a go! I gave in and brought the wacker plate which is an excellent little tool. From this I brought this chop saw which I can only praise! It does everything it says on the tin, with precision and ease!!"

A saw for the DIY enthusiast!

"This Evolution Rage Multi Mitre Saw has exceeded my expectations. It is more than competent when it comes to any amateur DIY tasks. I've cut Skirting board, kitchen laminates, oak flooring, architrave and decking effortlessly and cleanly, without the need to change blades.
Great value for money. A good all rounder.

"Purchased this on the fact that a friend had the circular saw in which he was impressed with. I really can't fault this saw, it is so versatile and still can not believe the price. The Dewalt saw is nearly triple the price... So you can't go wrong. The laser feature is so handy too"

Good value saw
13-Aug-2012
By
, Norfolk
"For the price this is a good saw for the money.
It's early days as I have only recently purchased this so I don't know how reliable it will be. But first impressions are quite good, everything works as it should , although the saw is quite weighty but this isn't noticeable once it's sat on the bench.
The saw did need slight adjustment to line the blade up square but thats to expected really.
Only been used for cutting cls timber so far, and did get some spelching on the cut but can't moan too much as the blade is general purpose and not a fine cut blade.

"Started as a great saw for the price but at the end the guard mechanism failed so i had to jam the guard which made operation very dangerous.
I have since returned the saw and purchased the Metabo sliding 200mm mitre saw £100 more expensive, the extra expense is worth it, as overall better quality"
