"I bought this with the folding stand and the two working together are ace.
I enjoy precision work and needed something that was capable but wouldn't break the bank. I visited other popular DIY stores and played around with the adjusters on other sliding mitre saws to see how well they adjusted and locked into position.
I was amazed just how some saws by big name brands charging 2 or 3 times the price of this were nowhere near as easy/reliable to set angles and lock etc. I found on some other brands that when I tightened the adjusters in place, the angle moved slightly... I cant live with that!"
"Purchased this to cut skirting and architrave mitres, well, if you are debating whether to buy or not, go for it. This truly is well worth the money. It made my life a lot easier. I usually stick to makita tools for work but this paired with the stand is excellent."
"This is really good saw. It's easy to use and cut down my laminate flooring easily and left a very neat edge too.
The only real downside I found was the amount of dust that it generates. I've since bought the bag that covers the extraction hole which I think will help, but I suspect there will still be a reasonable amount of dust left behind.
You can also buy a stand for this which I'd suggest you do (although it's heavy enough to require a second person to help carry).
These are minor niggles and overall I'm very impressed with it for my needs"
"This is really reliable, useful and multi use saw. You will never more think about nails or screws in the wood. I use it for the carpentry, plumbing (cuts copper pipes) and construction works. Honestly I find only pluses and no minuses of this tool. I don't regret even one penny spent on this purchase. I've also purchased evolution tile blade and now I have brilliant tool for cutting tiles. Highly recommend!!!"
"Having looked for a compound sliding saw I found screwfix had a vast collection. As I wanted a saw for occasional use this one seemed to fit the bill. I used it for cutting decking boards including doing various angles .It coped extremely well and did what was expected of it. Would highly recommend ."
"Bought this after reading other reviews and find it a superb piece of kit. It went together with no problems.and was up and running in around 30 minutes. It cuts timber cleanly and true. It is well built and feels like it will give many years of service. I would recommend this saw."
"Was a tad reluctant with this item, have used much more expensive pieces of kit in the past. Right from the off, it's proved an exceptional piece of kit, doing all that's been asked of it. Angles perfect every time. First time set up took very little time, and the manual guided me well with angle and laser calibration."
