Evolution Rage 2 Review:
The Evolution Rage 2 is a very popular model from Tool. They have been selling it since 2009 and they are still making them today.
It was designed with the DIYer in mind, but it does not mean that it is not good for professionals too.
So what makes this one so great?
Well, its versatility! You can use it for everything from general cutting work to fine woodworking projects and even some light metalwork jobs! It comes with a variety of attachments and accessories which allow you to do just about anything you want. Its design allows it to cut through almost any material and most types of woods. There are several different models available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. This particular model is the TCT (Toolcraft Cutters) version, which means that it uses a special tooling made specifically for this type of saw.
In addition to being able to cut through almost any material, the Evolution Rage 2 also features a high quality aluminum alloy handle. The handle is comfortable to hold and offers excellent grip.
This saw is also equipped with a safety feature called “Safety Stop”. When activated, this feature will stop the blade if it encounters something that could cause damage or breakage. This is useful when working around sharp objects like nails or screws. Another advantage of this model is that it can accept standard 7 1/4-inch circular saw blades, so you have many choices when it comes to the type of cuts you want.
There are some people who are still a little hesitant about this tool for some reason. They believe that the cast iron base might make it too heavy or hard to use, but they couldn’t be more wrong!
The tool is balanced perfectly and is not too heavy or too light. It actually feels very comfortable in your hands, and the weight actually helps with the cutting motion.
One thing to keep in mind about this saw and any other circular saw is that it can be dangerous if not used properly. This means that you should always wear protective gear, especially safety glasses, when operating this or any other power tool.
Also, stay focused and alert at all times. Never use this saw or any other power tool while you are tired or not feeling well. If you begin to feel symptoms of nausea, head aches, or blurred vision, stop what you are doing immediately and rest.
The Evolution Rage 2 is an excellent power tool that should provide many years of reliable service. It’s easy to use and lightweight for added comfort.
The standard two year limited warranty that comes with this product offers extra peace of mind, just in case anything bad happens. This is a good quality product that will make your life easier. It can be used for professionals or for people who just need a good reliable tool around the house.
This tool cuts well and has a nice feel and weight…
BUT… I bought it to trim some hardi-panel and when I went to cut, it would not bite into the material. This was NOT because of the material being too hard (I tried another saw – had no problems). I took the blade out and found that the teeth were not aligned with the bottom of the gullets. In fact, the blade was so out of whack it looked like a picket fence! I exchanged it for another one… same problem! I checked the store stock and all of them had the same issue. I returned it and bought the Bosch which worked great! Just check your saws before you buy it.
I have this saw and like it a lot. It cuts well and is balanced well.
The only thing that I don’t really care for is the dust collection. It seems that very little dust makes it into the bag and most just flies all over the place while you are cutting. I have also found that the blade seems to wander a little on the wheel and doesn’t always cut in a straight line. This is probably more of a problem with me than the saw because I am not very familiar with using a circular saw. However, I would definitely reccommend this saw to others.
I have had this saw for over two years and I love it. It cuts straight and has plenty of power.
I have cut everything from 2×4 to metal roofing with it. I would highly recommend it.
I have the orange one with the hard case. It has been a really good tool.
Although the base is pretty heavy the saw itsself is still balanced enough for overhead work. The only thing I don’t like is the screw that holds the lower handle on likes to vibrate loose and fall off after a little use. The vibration also causes the power button to turn off and on which is a pain when your in the middle of a cut. The only other complaint is that the sawdust end falls off pretty easy as well. Other than that its been great.
The circular saw does not cut clean, and leaves a lot to be desired. The entire thing just feels cheap.
I would not buy this product again.
I have been using this saw for over a year and it has been great. I do not do any heavy duty work with it, I mostly use it for cutting framing lumber and sheet goods.
I have also used it for remodeling jobs where I needed to cut door jambs and things of that nature. It works great for everything that I have used it for. When you purchase a tool you want it to last and with this tool it will.
I have both the orange and blue circular saws. The orange one is from a few years ago and the blue one is the new style.
The old style orange one is a sturdier saw. The new style blue one feels flimsy compared to the old style.
