"I'm already delighted with this product it cuts through thick logs and tough aluminium tube so easily. Very easy to assemble and I was surprised at how light it is too. For 90 degree cuts you will need a set square though."
"Very easy to assemble,the hardest part was removing the stickers! I have used the saw to cut wood,steel and copper pipe and ceramic tile and am amazed at the ease with which it coped.Lightweight,easy to use,great value for money.It's goodbye to the mitre block!"
"My old saw died just as we started a new kitchen project so time to invest in a new one .I unpacked the saw and had it put together within 30mins. I do recommend buying the evolution bench for it as well to get the best out of it if you are working on your own. The saw is easy and safe to use for any DIY project. For the cost it have some nice features like the laser guide speeding up construction time. I also like the fact it is is British engineering from Sheffield. Vey happy with this product."
"I bought this saw Evolution RAGE3-S 210mm Sliding Compound Mitre Saw 240V as a replacement for one I have just broken cutting logs. For the money you will find this saw hard to beat. 11" slide, laser accuracy, 1500w power. Great bit of kit."
"Used this to put together some slatted shelves then chop up some 6 x 3 with nails embedded for firewood. It coped with both jobs easily, accurate and clean cuts for the shelves, quick cuts for the larger wood even when hitting nails and screws."
"Like the circular saw I purchased, this was bought to replace an older, budget tool. Some self-assembly is required, but it's very straightforward. You DO have to set the laser and fence (using a square initially, then some common-sense!) Once set, it is a SUPERB bit of kit for a keen amateur such as I."
"I purchased this saw to cut skirting boards and shelving. I needed to make dozens of accurate cuts, mainly at 45deg and some at 90deg, and I wanted a laser guide as well. To be honest, I wasn't expecting that, for the price, the Rage-3S would be as good as it is. It was very easy to assemble and is a very rugged construction. Setting up the 90deg vertical and horizontal, and the 45deg vertical cut is not difficult but requires a bit of patience (the factory settings were a little off).
In practice, the saw works extremely well, cutting through MDF and hardwood with very little effort. The cuts are clean and accurate. The laser guide is very useful, if a little wide, so you need to line your cut up with the centre for best accuracy. This is the only reason I have given 4 stars for performance, (a bit critical maybe?).
The documentation supplied was comprehensive and easy to understand.
Overall, the Rage-3S performs well and is exceptional value for money. I highly recommend it"
"I bought this saw last week and am absolutely shocked at how good it is. I do a lot of DIY and find this very useful as it cuts timber and steel effortlessly and the laser guide is a good advantage. I would highly reccomend this to anyone"
"I am REALLY pleased with this saw. Having spent many years using a hand saw this has been a revolution! Having just moved house and doing a lot of DIY I have LOVED this saw. It has made DIY a pleasure again! It cuts everything I have thrown at it. New and old timber - nails and all. Even hardened steel. Fantastic piece of kit."
"This is the first Sliding Compound Mitre Saw that I have bought. I can only say that this is simply the best value item I have in my workshop. I use it all the time. It just does everything you could wish for with effortless efficiency. Very highly recommended."
