Evolution RAGE1-B Multi-Purpose Circular Saw : Just what I needed

Went through the wood like a hot knife through butter. Purchased this for 2 reasons, the phenomenal amount of review and the price. I’ll keep my review simple as there are much more detailed reviews on here already. I purchased this with a view to eventually using this as a table saw however i used this to cut up some loft boards. Took the saw out of the box, plugged in and away i went. Went through the wood like a hot knife through butter. Don’t hesitate, just get it.

So far i’ve only used it for breaking up planks of wood for the stove. I’ve taken 1 star off as it does not come with a hard plastic box.

Really great saw, very thin and accurate blade. The blade is really thin, the base is tough cast aluminium so it’s very flat and unlikely to bend. The fence is pretty useless so pair it up with a separate fence or guide. It’s pretty quiet, and mega powerful, cuts pretty much anything, metal pipe, copper tube, worktops, ply, polycarb, any sheet material really. Best circular saw i’ve ever had.

This is my first saw that i got for cutting up firewood for my new log burner. The saw can cut through anything as the wood ive cut so far has a few nails in it and the saw make quick work of them. I would definately reccomend this saw to anyone lookking for a budget saw.

  • Great saw, reliable and powerful
  • Went through the wood like a hot knife through butter
  • I think this is the best circular saw available for anywhere near the price bracket

Evolution rage b 185mm circular saw. Comes in a cardboard box with guide fence, allen key and instruction manual. Slightly larger and a little lighter than my old b&d pl40. 15kg (not including lead and plug). Overall width = 25cmoverall length = 30. 1cmclearance between motor housing and bottom of footplate at lowest setting = 1. 15cmoverhang of motor body over footplate = 10cmno-load running speed = 3700 rpm (stated)first the bad points:1) saw blade not quite perpendicular to the footplate at 90 deg setting. I had to dress the stop with a few strokes of a file to get it perfect. Definitely wouldn’t trust the angle scale on this saw2) saw blade did not line up with the v cut in the footplate at the 90deg setting. 5mm out and had to adjust the v cut with a file to get it aligned. 3) the edge guide can only be fitted to the front of the footplate.

What a fantastic product, i purchased their miter saw last year and that is just as good. The blade is so strong and the wood tear is minimal with the added benefit of cutting through metal so those pesky little screws/nails that hide in reclaimed timber are no longer an issue.

Bought to replace faulty hilka very good no problems comes with very good blade does all my jobs.

One of the best things i have ever bought. I’m a proficient diyer and this saw has been fantastic for long cuts of mdf, ply and wood. Very easy to use, easy to get nice straight cuts – especially when using the guide. I used this to make a large built-in storage unit for the bedroom and a bookcase, and it did everything perfectly. I’ve not used any other circular saw but given the performance from this one, i doubt a diyer will find better bang for their buck than this.

I think this is the best circular saw available for anywhere near the price bracket. I needed a decent circular saw to spin and cut things, saving my arms from the mind numbing process of using a hand saw. I purchased this evolution as previously i’ve found their tools well priced to achieve professional results. Honestly, i think this is the best circular saw available for anywhere near the price bracket. Purchase one today and save your arm and hand energy for other activities, for example, drawing. This product helped me cut wood very well. I was not paid or endorsed in any way to write these words.

A while having ordered this one i am very pleased with it. I’d been looking around for a circular for a while having ordered this one i am very pleased with it. I ordered a number of blades at the same time and have used to cut metal, stone and wood all of which were easy and straight forward.

This is a brilliant piece of kit. This is a brilliant piece of kit. As i have a table saw, compound mitre saw and jigsaw i didn’t think i really needed a circular saw. Boy, was i wrong this is a really handy tool. Its well made and comfortable to use, i knocked up a jig for using when cutting boards and get a perfect straight cut every time, and the same on smaller cuts using a speed square. Excellent saw would thoroughly recommend this to anyone thinking of buying a circular saw.

The blade it comes with is excellent too. What can i say about this circular saw?. It’s an incredible piece of kit, rock steady and powerful. I taped up three lengths of contiboard to get the same uniform length – not a problem. It has a spring loaded guard which is very well weighted so not to distract from the cut being made. Has an adjustible bevel rule too and cutting plate. The blade it comes with is excellent too. In short, at £50, it’s a steal.

I used this saw with a diamond blade to cut. I used this saw with a diamond blade to cut up an old pool table to be used as a hearth for a fire place. The saw has plenty of oomph and cut in a straight line. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality overall. It feels pleasant in the hand and easy to use, you don’t have to fight it.

Its slick, clean angles, and ease to use, makes you want to use it more. Very efficient, smooth action.

What a fantastic power tool to have. I was torn between getting a mitre saw and a circular saw and i’m glad i opted for this. It has more uses and whilst a mitre saw would be better for skirting boards, this still served me well because it can angle the cuts.

Its slick, clean angles, and simplicity to use, would make you want to use it additional. Extremely productive, sleek motion.

All round, superior make high quality. On the other hand, in the a single i bought, the blade did not sit square and needed some grinding with a rotary software to take care of it.

Evolution rage-b 230v 185 multipurpose circular saw. Brilliant saw for the funds. Most of my function is accomplished with hand saws, but on numerous situation i have to use electricity, in particular when ripping down sheets of ply. This saw tends to make short do the job of all work properly and with no effort and hard work at all. Really suggest this circular saw.

Brilliant saw, cuts wood like butter. This saw is amazing, i was reducing 38 mm thick beech wooden like butter. Great straight cuts using the fence. For the selling price its wonderful top quality. I have the rage 5 mitre saw and this is wonderful much too. Evolution have in my opinnion reallz carried out a excellent job. The saw has a metallic blade guard and is quite effectively created.

Wow wow wow wow this is one hell of a circular saw it went by means of my two solid doorways like they ended up butter nails as effectively rehung and what a time saver and excellent straight reduce thanks.
