Rated 5 out of 5Â by zod1ac update to my original review
So, I have now tried this saw out and can report that it cuts through 2 inch thick pine pine it's not actually there. I can't feel any resistance at all however quickly I push it. I was lucky to get it on offer at 50 quid However at 99.99 it's a serious bit of kit in my (enthusiastic newbie) opinion. If you need one and are looking at this price range I'd buy this all day long :-)
Rated 4 out of 5Â by fcarog Value for money
Whilst on the lookout for a Circular Saw I spotted the Evolution Stealth 185mm 240v "Limited Edition" model. Complete with TCT all-purpose blade and equipped with electric brake it seemed to offer decent value for money at the Screwfix offer price of Â£50.
Seems to pretty robustly made and assembled and thus far it has performed well and tackled all I have asked of it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Donkeyman Did I get a duff one?
Used this on shuttering ply and 1.5"cls and it worked brilliantly with a nice clean cut. Went through 1.5in. softwood effortlessly, but;
tried cutting softwood with no more than 10 2mm nails running at right angles to the cut and the blade was completely blunt.
Don't know whether the wrong blade was supplied as the lettering is now worn off.
In summary seems a good basic saw at a very good price let down by the blade not matching the claims made for it.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Alwaysbelieve Poor build quality
Needed a second saw and this saw seem to fit the bill, however it was obvious as soon as I opened the box it was not it not going to last 5 mins on any site. The guide rail is flimsy and was already bent! the screw which hold down the guide rail was already threaded and not even used it, it has no box or dust bag, the power lead is way short to be truly safe,..... I will say the saw does have a good feel in your hand but over all great for any diy'er but if you are trade I dought very much it will stand the rigor of day in day out work.....I will say the saw blade is fantastic.
