Evolution Power Tools Concrete Electric Disc Cutter UK Review

Thanks for taking the time to read our UK review of the Evolution Concrete Electric Disc Cutter. If you need a heavy duty saw to get through any type of concrete, then this could be a very good option for you.

This saw runs off electric so this is not run from a small petrol or gas engine. It can cut concrete, stone, brick, paving and reinforced concrete so a tough tool for sure.

It has a cutting depth of 4" (100 mm) as long as you do it in incremental values.

It uses a diamond blade to do the cutting. Overall this saw is covered by a 3 year warranty. You can buy this as either a 110 volt version for working on building sites, and is also available for normal voltage use of 230-240 volts.

It is worth noting that electric concrete saws are about half the price of petrol saws. Evolution are also a popular choice for many UK buyers, and are well known for other types of saws.

The electric motor does mean that no harmful fumes are emitted. You should consider that if it is being used for work in enclosed areas.

Our Verdict on the Evolution Power Tools Concrete Electric Disc Cutter

We understand that on job sites this type of saw is used frequently, and the vast majority of these would be heavier duty petrol saws.

This is not one of these, though it can be used as a site saw with the 110 volt option. We don't think this works as a few buyers say that it isn't really suited for continued heavier work.

We believe that this is better for domestic use and ideal for when you have to cut any type of concrete around the home or garden.

The fact that this is an electric option does mean that there are no fumes to worry about and no problems trying to get it to start up. Buyers also said this was great for indoor use.

It is well made, and buyers liked the slow start mechanism as some disc cutters start with quite a kick. It is a well balanced saw, easy to control and cuts really well.
