"Evolution R255SMS+ review
Thoroughly researched Best Buy websites and, for value for money for the features it has and the DIY use it would get, decided to purchase the Evolution R255SMS+ Multi-Material Sliding Mitre Saw with Plus Pack, 255 mm (230V) through Amazon. (£185 including a second multi purpose Carbide tipped blade) Speedy delivery as expected by Prime.
Assembly was straightforward but I agree with reviewers that the pictures in the manual could have been bigger and therefore clearer.
Alignment out of box seems fine but may tweak it later. Good info in manual on how to do this.
Used it to cut 6x2 timber and cuts were clean and square. Then tried it on some 3mm mild steel pipe and was impressed with the (almost) burr free cuts.
I like the solid feel to the sliding arms and the saw is nicely balanced. The effort to use is reasonable and smooth so does not distract attention from the accuracy of cut. I see why some reviewers make mention of its large footprint it might take (esp. front to back) if used in a workshop. Mine will be used mostly on my Aldi Mitre stand (almost identical to the one in Screwfix)
It’s quiet and the soft start is not a problem for me as it comes up to speed quite quickly and gives a little thinking time re hand and timber positions. Quick to stop when power switch released
Guard is good and encloses the blade in its resting position. The wheels on the leading edge of the guard really help the guard to lift up over part cut timber rather than either snag or remain so high mid cut that they overexpose the blade. I feel safe using this saw.
It is relatively much quieter than previous mitre saws I have used – less likely to annoy the neighbours.
Yet to check the accuracy of angled or bevelled cuts but will check and align if necessary using the adjustments available.
The Limited 3 year warranty means that one more company (Aldi have done this for years) is confident that its tools will last. That had a big influence my decision to purchase from Evolution.
I’m very happy with this saw and look forward to many years of accurate cutting."
"Small part missing but was dispatched overnight.Great service.Well done."
"used it for the first time very pleased with the cut very clean and no fraying!!!"
"Excellent tool for the intended use of compacting a patio hard core"
"The product is very well designed, easy to assemble, easy to use and simple to maintain. Its suits its purpose in all aspects"
"Hello the new saw bench is very good but have two issues the mitre gauge as the bolt on the end which locks it down but the bolt wont screw in straight and there is no were to store it."
"Tough tools at a great price!"
"My partner bought me the Fury 6 as a Christmas gift to leave at home as back up for work but also for home DIY. I've used it 3 times but it seems faulty as its sparking and too dangerous to further use. I registered for warranty, but sadly the warranty is pointless without the receipt, which is no good for me. Good for the bin and not much else."
"Excellent mitre saw . Mounted on the stand made working the saw Sturdee and it cut perfectly. Great piece of kit ."
"Best disc cutter I've ever had compared to a petrol one more reliable soft start no vibration press the trigger and go no constantly pulling a cord."
"does exactly what it says on the box cant fault it"
"Well made sturdy & safe"
"Found it a little tricky to operate initially but once I got used to it was able to switch between operations. although I did damage the blade cover while experimenting with the change over."
"As a disabled person the requirement for a power saw is paramount. It has to be easy to use, fit for purpose and adaptable. Apart from this it also has to be reliable and good value for money. I have to say that this mitre saw ticks all the boxes."
"great to use - helps get the job done"
"Early days yet,but pleased so far.very straight forward to set up,bought the evolution stand the same time impressed with that as well."
"Have not used this a lot having only just made the purchase. When my husband first received the evolution power tool he noticed one of the nuts had no thread. Following a quick telephone call to your company a new nut was posted out first class the same day. Extremely good service, very pleased."
"Great mitre saw and bought a good price from screwfix although their packing for international delivery meant that the box was damaged quite a bit. However saw works great and cut through wood fence posts like a hot knife through butter and even made easy work of cutting galvanised steel post spikes. If sawing timbers that require a fine finish would definately recomend the fine wood blade as I did get a few end splinters but nit a problem on posts but could be on laminate wood for exampme. I would have likeda dust bag as standard as gives off a huge amount of dust and laser useless outside if honest. Orherwise a fantastic saw for the money."
