"When I saw the name of this saw, I thought: I'm not angry with my timber, I just want to cut it. This thing cuts it. As an amateur, I can't claim to have tried many others. All I can say is how easy it is to use, straight out of the box. Highly recommended. Don't remember the name of the lady in Eastleigh branch who helped me buy this, sorry. Very helpful and pleasant. Nice atmosphere in there. I felt comfortable asking my silly questions."
"Purchased specifically to cut 60mm insulated metal roof panels. Well impressed, like a hot knife through butter and cut straight and true. The only change I'd make would be some sort of protection for the eye guide as it soon gets covered in dust. Well happy with it, especially for the money."
"better quality than most the die cast footplate is more rigid than the pressed steel ones as they distort while operating & end up with a crooked cut. Nice smooth motor & thin blade. Only one whinge :- could have done with an extended dust outlet when cutting to attach an extractor hose as the dust goes everywhere."
"Bought this to trim my decking straight and this saw performed superbly. A bit daunting to use a circular saw for the first time but got used to this very quickly and was able to make good cuts right out of the box. Very sturdy and easy to operate, a good addition to a DIYers tool box."
"Why didn't I buy this earlier? I had a cheap one which I only used occasionally...I now know why....I am actively looking for reasons to use this saw LOL.
Performs so much better than my other saw, and this will also cut a nail/screw. Unless you work exclusively with virgin wood you might meet one of these little devils one day!
Well balanced, easy to handle and accurate cut. I have the evolution chop saw as well, and for the price I am really happy. BUT for me the ability to cut wood AND metal (cleanly as well!) overrides any other manufacturer. As they say, why buy anything else?"
"Bought this to replace a slightly cheaper circular saw I had bought from lidl. The lidl one seemed fine but stopped working after a few months. Got a refund and decided to try this one and have been amazed at the speed and ease of cutting so far. Had some 4 x 2 to chop through which took a matter of seconds to go through and a very clean cut as well. Seems well built and it is certainly easy to use. Would recommend to any DIY'er!"
"Purchased this saw almost 12 months ago and has been worth every penny. I don't use it every day and mainly use it to cut ply/sterling board and floor boards which it goes through with no problems at all, for the money it is fantastic and highly recommend it for basic cutting not ripping down 7 x 2 every day."
"This is the first time I've used a circular saw and I can honestly say I'm very impressed. Have managed to cut through both soft and hard wood with ease. In fact it glides through any piece of wood. Would highly recommend it!"
"Works well and not too noisy. I'm using it for cutting wood and tree parts to fuel my chiminea. Perfect. I will have to find more challenging projects, boarding the loft for example, I've every confidence the saw will be a great help."
"Awesome tool, excellent value for money. Perfect for getting up floorboards.
Limited to blade choice (pretty much Rage or nothing) which is fine if all your doing is rougher work where nails etc might be present as the Rage blade are great for that (if a little expensive). Not so great for finer woodworking as the rage blades chatter and tear out something terrible, but with a simple boss adapter your could fit any 185mm blade (plus save a fortune)"
"You cant really ask for more from a circular saw. At this price I was very surprised with just how good it is. The blade is nice and true to 90 and the cuts have made on wood and metal so far have been ridiculously easy.
"Positives. Nice and sturdy with a bit of weight to keep it stable when in use but still comfortable to hold and to handle with just one hand. Very quiet when cutting wood, have not tried metal or plastics yet so can not comment on those materials.
Negatives. No dust bag supplied, nit picking but it would have been handy.
Overall. The perfect circular saw for any DIY enthusiast and from first impressions, for the professionals as well."
