"A really good saw for a bargain price, just wish I had bought it 6 months ago when I started the first decking project would have saved hours, cutting the 150mm x 50mm joists is a breeze, no more messing about with the circular saw , nice sq clean cuts, have even cut 75mm x 75mm posts with it, unless your using a saw 8hrs a day 5/6 days a week then why spend more"
"Ive wanted a mitre saw for a while for DIY jobs around the house. I wanted one that was capable but didn't cost the earth so started looking at reviews and asking friends. This one kept popping as a best seller and on screwfix at a very good price. Ive only had it for a few days but very happy and the blade will cut wood, metal and plastic without having to be changed..."
"This mitre saw was something i always wanted in my tool box im glad i bought it.on the first job i did it was accurate and made light work of the job in hand,it does everything it says on the screwfix website. At first i wasnt sure what i needed but the young girl on the counter recommend it to me ,she was sure i would be happy with it and she was right.ive got myself another tool thats reliable and should give me a few years service.Thanks Screwfix."
"As with many others had bought this to replace my old tired mitre saw. Assembly is easy and would recommend you check that everything ie bevel and straightness of blade to laser is done before you start your first cut. But as it says on the box and video it does exactly what it states and suprisingly quiet too. You will not find another of this spec and quality cheaper."
"i was skeptical of getting this saw to begin with as i didn't really need one. but after getting this i have to say that i have mitred everything whether it was needed or not. putting in new skirting board was an awesome experience (except the floors were un-level ).
if you have to get a mitre saw then get this it is awesome and yes it really does cut metal"
"This mitre saw replaced my old one which I had for a good number of years. Had I realised how good this one was, I would have replaced it so much earlier. It requires some assembly but this is really straightforward. The neatness of the cuts is fantastic and 90degree cut was checked against an engineers square and was found to be spot on. The same can be said for the angle cuts. I can't comment on reliability as I only just bought it. However, I can't fault it in any way. I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone. It is constructed well, sturdy, not flimsy. For the price, I would be surprised if you could get one better. The laser guide is a very useful aid and as previously reported, needs no adjustment. Simply brilliant."
"If you're looking at these reviews to decide if this bargain Evolution is worth a punt I'll save you some time: it is.
It comes in a compact box and requires some assembly, which is easy enough but aided further by a quick swatch at the video on the maker's website. Once assembled you'll want to check it for accuracy. Mine was dead true at 90° and within a 10th at 45° on each axis.If you need to adjust it further there are clear instructions in the larger of the two manuals.
In operation, it's just a joy. It powers through everything I've thrown at it and leaves a clean edge. The slide action is good and everything feels excellent for a device in this range."
"This saw has to be tried for you to realize how good a quality it is. Cuts through everything with ease and people who have used it have gone straight out and bought one themselves (4 that I know of). Excellent bit of kit."
"i have been looking for a mitre saw for a while but could not make up my mind which one to get.after lots of research i chose this evolution,and i am so pleased i did,it is a fantastic tool. the only dowside is it does not come with a dust bag."
