Evolution Range of Mitre Saws Reviewed

Evolution mitre saws are very popular with many Home Improvement people and those of us who enjoy our DIY projects. The main reason for this is the price point which makes Evolution highly affordable for almost anyone.

The Evolution brand truly are at the right sort of price for most budgets in the UK. They bring the whole range of mitre saws into the affordable price bracket. They range in price from around £50 for the basic models and up to around £300 for their top of the range models.

When compared to other brands such as Dewalt then you can see that they compare very well in the pricing and affordability of their products.

They offer two distinct lines which they brand as the RAGE and the FURY. In each of these lines, they offer both compound mitre saws and sliding compound mitre saws. You can see the differences in the way these two lines look in the images below.

Now apart from the main colour difference, these are actually designed for two different markets.

Evolution Fury Range

FURY saw models are designed mainly for the DIY market. They are suitable for moderate and irregular use is required. You get most of the features found on the expensive mitre saws but at competitive prices.

The FURY blades are good quality and last for a decent length of time. They can cut through wood, plastic, aluminium and some heavier metals.

Evolution Rage Range

RAGE saws are designed for the professional and those of us who consider ourselves serious DIY people. They have a higher specification and a large range of operational features. They are also tougher and suitable for heavy, sustained and regular use.

The RAGE saw blades are also designed for a higher performance. As such they will last-longer and have more teeth for cleaner cuts. They also are capable of cutting more Steel before a replacement is required.

Are The Evolution Saws Good Quality?

​Almost instantly when you see products that are at a cheaper price, you start to think about the quality. A basic Dewalt will cost around £200 whereas a basic Evolution will cost around £50. That does make you think about the quality and if the cheaper product is any good.

The answer is pretty simple though in that the Evolution brand aimed to fill a particular market for many home owners and people who enjoyed working on various home projects.

Does your average person who wants to do a few jobs around the home like fitting some skirting, or doing a bit of coving really want to spend £200 buying an expensive saw? The answer to that is no and that is why other brands like Evolution came in and tried to cater for the average person who will do a bit of DIY from time to time.

In my opinion the Evolution products stack up pretty well but they are not at the high end of the quality chain. That said, I have used them and they work really well and certainly get the job done. In many ways it is a bit like buying a car.

If you want to travel in the ultimate style then a Rolls Royce would be one of the ultimate drives. A Ford Focus will get you there just the same and is a heck of a lot cheaper. That is exactly what Evolution have done and have done it rather well.

Difference between 230 Volts vs 110 Volts

​The 110 volt models buyers often confuse with being either European or American. That isn't actually the case though. In the UK, safety standards introduced the 110 volt power tools as a safer method of work.

These are always recommended in most construction sites now. You would not buy a 110 volt one for the house. If you were working in construction then this would be the best choice. These work off a step down transformer, which is usually available on site from a generator. Otherwise you will need to buy one of these to make your 110 volt mitre saw work.

​Let's have a look at the Evolution range of saws and find out what buyers actually think about them once they have bought and used them. We will have a look at the FURY range first and then at the RAGE range.

​To avoid any confusion, I have shown the normal 230 volt options first. The 110 volt options are at the end of this article. Let's begin our reviews though, by looking at the DIY based Evolution Fury range.

​The Main Evolution FURY Range of Saws

​Now we can have a look at the FURY range and see what is available in that. This is a cheaper range that the RAGE, so perfect for people who are trying to work off a limited budget. These are also ideal for most normal DIY people. There are four versions of this which you can read about below.

  1. ​Evolution FURY3-B Multipurpose Compound Mitre Saw
  2. Evolution FURY62102 Multipurpose Table/Mitre Saw 210 mm - 230 V
  3. Evolution FURY3-XL Multipurpose Sliding Mitre Saw 255 mm - 230 V
  4. Evolution Fury3 Multipurpose Sliding Mitre Saw 210 mm - 230 V

The most popular is the basic compound saw which is the FURY 3-B Compound saw. That is because of the low price of £50.

Evolution FURY ​3-B Multipurpose Compound Mitre Saw Review

Super value price at around £50

String and consistent buyer ratings of 4.5 out of 5 stars with lots of buyers, making this one a BEST SELLER

Compound saw so not a sliding saw​


Evolution FURY62102 Multipurpose Table/Mitre Saw 210 mm - 230 V Review

This one costs around £98-100

This one doubles up both as a mitre saw and also as a table saw.

​It is a decent enough deal as to buy a table saw and a mitre saw separately would cost a great deal more

Works ok but not to a really high standard - useful enough though for most jobs around the house and garden

If it is just a mitre saw you are after, pass on this one and get the one above.


Evolution FURY3-XL Multipurpose Sliding Mitre Saw 255 mm - 230 V Review

Super value price at around £170 for a compound sliding saw

One of the best sellers in the sliding compound brands of mitre saws

Has a 210 mm multi-purpose blade

Compound tilt and slide mechanism, for long angled cuts

So those are the main saws in the FURY range. The basic compound is the best seller down to its price and good quality. if you need a sliding version I would recommend the FURY3-XL. That one is compound and tilt and also includes a helpful laser guidance system.

Out of all the saws that I have reviewed in the Evolution ranges, this one stands out as being one of their best. The product is well made and it is very accurate. Buyers will be spending almost £170 on this one and when you do that, you tend to get a higher quality saw.

​The Main Evolution RAGE Range of Saws

​They now have 13 different saw models in this range and each has its own model number. I have removed the 110 volt options for now and you can find these lower down this article.

​The remaining 8 evolution models you can see just below:

  1. ​Evolution Rage3 Multipurpose Sliding Mitre Saw 255 mm - 230 V

That is a lot of saws and difficult to know which one to pick. The last two on the list are pretty new. All of the rest sell pretty well so we shall look at those. As mentioned earlier, there are 100 volt versions of these which I will show lower down the page.

Compound saw not sliding​

Good consistent buyer ratings of 4.4 out of 5 stars 

​This basic saw is their most popular and sells really well.

You get a nice compact power tool that can handle the simple crosscut and a variety of basic mitre cuts. This one is ideal for doing laminate floors and skirtings.

It is a tough little saw that will allow you to get the basic jobs done.It is fair to class this one as an entry level and is priced on average at around £70 depending on where you purchase it.

It is good value for the price being asked and as long as you are not expecting a Rolls Royce you will not be disappointed. It is good for doing general cutting and can get through a ton of work.

Evolution Rage3-DB 230 V Multi-Purpose Double Bevel Mitre Saw, 255 mm Review

Priced at around £242

Good consistent buyer ratings of 4.1 out of 5 stars 

​This is the high end saw in the RAGE range and the average price is around £250 depending on where you make your purchase.

Not a lot of people are willing to spend this much money on a saw so difficult to find a huge range of reviews.

There are some though and they rate it right up there with the best mitre saws on the market. I have not used this one myself so I could not with any authority make comments either way.

Evolution Rage3-S Multipurpose Sliding Mitre Saw 210 mm - 230 V Review

Priced at around £155

Good consistent buyer ratings of 4.1 out of 5 stars 

​The Rage 3-S is a good value sliding saw, ideal for cutting wider timber. Despite its size it still works really well and again, buyers rate this one very highly.

The main benefits are that it does not take up much room, and is pretty simple to set up and get started with.

That is an important thing for many users. It is according to all the reviews that I have read a saw that does exactly what it says.


Evolution Saw Blades

​Evolution also do a range of blades and again these are popular with many buyers.They come in different sizes and also for use on different materials. Their best selling blade is the multi-purpose one as it can cut through just about anything.It will come down to the type of finish that you want at the end of the day. The good news is that you do have plenty of choices.

Evolution also do their own stand which is suitable for any of their range of saws.​ The average cost for this is in and around £50 depending on where you buy it.

It also has very useful extendable support arms. Those allow you to work with longer work pieces. To top it off there are also handy quick release brackets.
