Recent reviews of Evolution Power Tools RAGE2 Multi Purpose Cutting Chop Saw, 14-Inch:

I am giving this earlier excellent saw (5 stars) one star because they changed the design without changing the model number sometime in early 2014. I have 5 of these saws now with my crews, and clearly I would not have 5 if I did not think they were pretty darn good for the money. But the last one I got was changed considerably, presumably to save the maker some money. I do not think I will be ordering any more. The old saws had:A strong and well built cast aluminum base – heavy dutyA much better system for locking the saw in the down (shipping or moving) positionBasically much better built all aroundThe new variant has:A cheap stamped base that will surely bend or break more easilyA little part of chain to hold the saw down for moving/storage instead of the fitted locking tab of the earlier modelA cheap feel all aroundThere is one good thing about the new saw: The handle design is much improved. My only complaint about the old variant was the handle, which was badly intended and hard to use with one hand if the saw was mounted at workbench height as all mine are. It is as if they intended it to be used sitting on the ground. In spite of that, the original variant of the Rage 2 was the best metal cutoff saw for the money by a large margin. It surely was not near the quality of the best saws, like the Rigid cut off saw, however that saw is 5 times more money than the Rage. I wish they had not changed anything on the new Rage II but the handle. Then it could be 5 stars plus.



I use a alike saw at work (Dewalt) and this thing is so much better. While it’s heavier, it also has a much better vise and accessories. This chop saw cuts metal, wood, or plastic like a hot knife thought butter. Not to talk about is nearly haft the cost of other name brand tools.



I wanted something to cut tubing, round and angle iron for home hobby metalworking. I could recommend this saw as it performs as good or better than advertised – love it. I did take a star off for the blade being so costly, the arbor is 1″ which looks to be distinctive to Evolution. I’m generally worried about the blade as I do not have a spare still. I’ll give the fifth star back if the blade lasts a year of sporadic cautious work. Pro:-Like another reviewer said, this cuts through metal & wood like butter. Amazing. -Cuts are clean with little to no burr (to get better at the “exit” the more I use it). -Saw is observably quieter and different tone (slower rpm) than my old 12″ wood chop saw. -Tiny metal shavings are produced as it cuts, no sparks, clean working environment. -No dust residue in the air as it cuts. -Metal is cold and may be handled now after cut, amazing. -Build quality is good- good. No noticable slop anywhere, feels exact. Con:-Blade is really costly, about 100 and looks to be proprietary. -Taking extra care to ensure material is tightly clamped to avoid it moving and ruining that 100 blade. -have to look for a laser, now I can do good by eyeballing but it could a lot faster to have a laser on there.
