When shopping, you scrutinize a product’s quality base on its price. Well, you probably have your doubts about this tool. But, why would anyone want to spend £250 to achieve a few home projects? The evolution brand’s objective was to fill the market with products that homeowners could use to get perfect jobs. Below is an in-depth evaluation of Evolution rage3DB 255mm.
1. Double Bevel Action
The saw draws a lot of attention with its double bevel action. Unlike other saws, which you have to keep resetting every time you cut, the saw enables you to operate at different angles and achieve different cuts. If you have many finishing carpentry to do, the tool will come in handy to help you finish up fast. Besides, most saws offering this feature will require that you dig deeper into your pocket.
2. Cutting Capacity
Have you ever wanted to work on a wood that had nails, but you had to remove each ail before starting the task because your saw wasn’t powerful enough? Well, then you understand why a powerful blade is crucial for any work. Its big cutting capacity makes it a good fit for big tasks. Its high power and the large blades allow it to cut into even the most resilient materials. At zero degrees, it can cut up to 3.1 inches by 12.5 inches. Apart from the huge timber, this saw should help you cut up your wood without any problem. As you increase your angle, the cut becomes sharper and smaller. The finest cut you can achieve with this saw is 1.5inches by 8.5 inches.
3. Powerful 2000 Watt Motor
The motor makes it sturdy enough to handle tough tasks. Besides, the incredible features and design to handling huge tasks can only work with a powerful motor. The rage 3 DB features a 2,000-watt motor that allows it to penetrate through hardwoods without requiring much effort. Also, it enables the saw to operate for hours without breaking down.
4. Multi-purpose Blade
Once you open the box, you can already start using it. As a handyman, you get all kinds of tasks and a saw that can handle anything that you want to work on is a savior. With rage 3 DB, you can work on all materials without having to change the blades. The feature enables you to complete your tasks quickly. It will slice through any material; wood, metal or plastic without leaving blurs. If you have many sporadic jobs coming your way, the tool will be of great importance.
Although the blade is just 12” while most blades at the market are 14”, the saw compensates this with its incredible feature of 12” slide mechanism. Thus, it can solve any common problem you face during your work. The saw also last long as the feature enables it to handle even the most resilient metallic operation easily.
5. What Is The Accuracy Like On These?
It’s an incredible feature considering the price of the mitre saw. The laser light guides you as you cut your material; thus, you can get an accurate cut with ease. If your workshop has dim light or your work is emitting so much sawdust, it may be impossible to get a precise cut. However, with a laser guide, it becomes easier to achieve high accuracy.
6. Dust Collection System
Rage 3 DB has a bag which collects all sawdust emitted during your cutting. Although other expensive saws come with better dust management systems, the sawdust piling system of this saw is just as efficient. If your working space is small, you can apply other physical methods to keep the air less cloudy.
7. Broader Base
The saw works on large materials. Thus, its large base is for helping in clamping down the materials. If you often do the task alone, this feature will be of great benefit to you. Also, it is a safety measure as it ensures your saw does not move or easily fall during sawing.
The saw features an extendable fence guard which adds stability when working on longer materials. Also, it has top clamps that hold it securely in place. Also, they help reduce sawing vibration; thus, you get precise and detailed cuts.
