At just £85 this mitre saw is a bit limited in the features it offers. You won’t find a laser guide in this device or any other decent add ons. It will however cut through wood, steel and plastic with the same blade which makes it perfect for the home.

This saw is quite compact as well so it will easily fit in garage or cupboard, ready to get out when you need it. Weighing in at just 6.4kg it is the lightest mitre saw we have reviewed to date.

Main Features

You won’t find a laser guide on this saw but it does come with a dust bag. The blade will cut through metal, wood and plastic so there is no need to buy specialised blades with this saw.

How well does the Evolution Fury3-B cut?

Given the low price, it is not surprising that this saw comes with a low cutting capacity. The saw features a 210 mm blade with a maximum cut depth of just 120mm. Not ideal if you are planning on cutting larger pieces.

Even though it has a smaller cutting capacity it makes up for it due to the fantastic blade. This thing will cut through anything like butter so is a great multipurpose saw to have to hand.

Lets see it in action

Conclusion

The Evolution Fury3-B won’t be taken on site anytime soon but that isn’t really who it is aimed at. If you are looking for a professional level saw try one by Bosch or DeWalt. If you just need a great saw to have at home this is a great choice. If you need to cut larger pieces though you are better off going with the Rage3.

Evolution RAGE3-S+ Review


Evolution RAGE3 S+Not all mitre saws are created equal. Generally if you want features such as laser guidance, dust bags and a deep cutting capacity you have to pay the higher prices. The Evolution RAGE3-S+ bucks that trend by offering all of this for just over £100.

This mid to low level metre saw is clearly aimed at the hobby user. However if you are in need of mitre saw for occasional use this is the one I would recommend.

All these features do come and a cost and that is it is not as precise as others on the market such as the Bosch GCM 8 SJL but is a third of the price!

Laser: Yes


Evolution has a done a great job in designing the RAGE3 S+. The quality is very good for the price and this thing feels pretty solid in it’s build quality. The multipurpose blade is very versatile and can cut through metal, wood and plastic easily.

The Evolution RAGE3 S+ is probably the best mitre saw for DIY enthusiasts or hobby crafters. It comes with all the features of the more professional models but without the high price tag.

The one downside to this is it is not as precise as it’s more expensive competitors. If you need a metre saw for cutting things like door frames or picture frames, where every millimetre counts you might be better shelling out a bit more.

However, not everyone needs that level of precision and for everything else this is a great buy. Lets have a look at the features.

Main Features

Unlike some of the more expensive models this model comes with an accessory pack making it even more of a bargain. In addition to the saw and multipurpose blade it also comes with a dust bag, top clamp and side extensions. Although the dust bag doesn’t quite manage to collect as much dust as it should it is still a nice addition.

The Evolution RAGE3-S+ also comes with laser guidance which is usually only available in more expensive models.

How well does the Evolution RAGE3-S+ cut?

A tool is only as good as the output of it’s results. The Evolution RAGE3-S+ has a powerful 1500W motor driving the blade. This is more than the more expensive Bosch GCM 800 SJ so should give a smooth cutting experience.

The multipurpose blade has a good 300 mm x 75 mm cutting capacity due to the sliding ability. As the blade can cut through metal it has no problem with pesky nails in reclaimed wood.

This saw is also capable of single bevel cuts as well as mitre cuts.

As mentioned previously this saw is as accurate as some and can sometimes be 1° out. It is great for flooring, skirting and other jobs though.

Conclusion

This mitre saw is great for the DIY enthusiast and is a great tool to have in your garage. At just over £100 it isn’t a big loss if you don’t get as much use out of it as you had hoped.
