"I have not used this properly yet as I assembled it only yesterday hence my lower star rating for the performance and reliability. The features can only rate as three stars as it could have come with a dust collecting bag and a few other bits but I suppose for the price you cannot have everything! Once I have used it properly doubtless I will be able to increase my performance & reliability ratings. However, the most important aspect is the excellent service Screwfix provide. I ordered this saw late Sunday afternoon with some other bits and they all arrived on Monday at 9.10 am. How fantastic is that? With this level of service I shall definitely use Screwfix again."
"My family always been handheld saw people. But to fix damaged roof fascia I needed some mitre cuts. What can I say? I bought this as my first ever power saw. It just blew me away. Service, as always was top notch and as soon as I tried it I was hooked. The power is just mind blowing. I mean it absolutely slices anything I throw at it. I havent got anything to compare it with as far as power saws go but this is my experience. There is a cool safety features whereby a guard automatically covers the blade after you retract the arm from cutting. I know I rush after cuts so this is a great relief. The cuts are clean but I recommend slowing down a little as this makes the edges even crisper. Any type of wood is no matter. I havent tried metal yet but a youtube video shows it cut just the same. I recommend getting a fixed table to bolt the machine to as the power can pull it off a table top otherwise. If I had paid double I still wouldnt be bothered. Its an absolute bargain (honest I dont work for screwfix)."
"I bought this bit of kit as I had a few projects on the horizon. I now wish I had purchased it sooner as it’s an excellent and easy to use mitre saw which would certainly have helped with previous projects. I bought it to mainly cut wood bur reading the info available this is a really versatile saw which cuts most materials.
Good quality and an excellent price. Now just need to buy the accessory pack (extra clamps and dust bag) that didn’t come as part of the package I bought. Would highly recommend this bit ok kit."
"This is my first sliding mitre saw and I must say that I wish I had purchased one sooner. I purchased it to cut the ends of replacement diagonal decking boards and it made the job a breeze with its accurate and fast and clean cutting action. Although I have only used the 45 & 90 angle cuts it made light work of my 144mm x 29mm decking boards.
This product would have saved me time on many DIY projects had I had one.
Good price, good quality, (although the laser is difficult to see in outdoor daylight) worth taking the time to set it up accurately and I am very pleased with it."
"I am no tradesman, and required a mitre saw for general purpose around the house. Used this for laminate flooring, and making planters out of decking for my wife. Great little saw, easy to set up. Would recommend to anybody. Even a tutorial on the web. Great purchase"
"Accurate, easy to use, great safety features, Cuts through anything. Mitres, bevels, compound cuts are all a cinch with this great piece of kit. The blade sleeve exposes only as much as is cutting. Light enough to carry but heavy enough it stays put. A must-have for on-site or workshop for professionals and DIYers."
"Bought this saw to make my life easier due to the amount of skirting and facings I was about to fit. Very glad I did. Having never used one before, I was surprised how easy it was to set up and use. Followed the instructions for setting up and aligning the blade and laser,which took about half an hour. (Don't skip this if you want straight cuts). Very sturdy and solid machine which will cut through almost anything you'll need it to whilst renovating your house."
"I bought this after my old static one broke (not an Evolution one) half way through a project. I wish I'd bought it sooner tbh! Although it took 2-3 trips back to screwfix due to missing lock off button for changing the blades.
The product itself is solid, excellent features and easy to assemble. The laser is a very handy feature too, as is the side clamp. Highly recommended product"
