Evolution Rage 185mm Multipurpose Circular Saw with Diamond Blade 230v
Had to cut a large no of slabs and decided to give this a go. Must admit I was slightly sceptical but was very pleasantly suprised. Breezed through slabs probably faster than an angle grinder and certainly safer. It is well built and robust.

Had seen the youtube vid's of this saw cutting various materials. So far I have only cut wood with the multipurpose blade, and concrete gravel board with metal rods cast in, and paving slabs, with the diamond blade. All of these were powered through with no effort. Fantastic. My only criticism is the viewing window for sighting the blade alignment with the workpiece, isn't easy to gauge the blade position. Overall this is a fantastic, robust tool, with everything included in the large carry case. I don't normally do a lot of reviews, but I like it when something feels right. This tool is worth having for it's versatility, and quality. Well worth the price.

Excellent piece of kit
I have used this saw on 1mm steel sheet and found that it performed excellently. On solid oak worktops it did struggle however and I had to make a number of passes at increasing depth to make the cut. The resulting cut however was accurate and clean. On wood cutting, though I have found that the riving knife had to be removed as it tends to bind in the cut.

hey good lookin
does look good, and it cuts well. however it proved fiddly and cumbersom. hard to work one handed. the sawdust collection chamber kept filling up instead of pumping out of the 'exhaust' tube, causing frequent stops to unscrew and empty. safety guard was a bit sticky at times. had a cheap powerdevil for years without any problems.
