Product Description

Size: 1 7-1/4-Inch

Evolution RAGE 1, 7-1-4-Inch, TCT, Multipurpose Circular Saw is capable of cutting steel, aluminum, wood with nails in and plastics with just one blade, being one of the world's first circular saws to be able to cut metal. When cutting steel, the RAGE 1 cuts cold, no coolant is required. Because the material is cold it can be handled and worked on immediately. A combination of a hi-torque motor and gearbox, heavy duty construction and ultra high grade TCT blade enables the RAGE 1 to cut materials which simply weren't possible before. A blade can cut up to 165-Feet of 1/4-Inch mild steel before a replacement is required

Not too bad but needs some fixes Feb. 18 2012
By George A. Sopko - Published on Amazon.com
I am a hobbyist and that is why I chose this particular saw. I could not afford nor did I need a professional grade saw. Overall, I have been very happy with the saw and its performance and I have cut quite a few linear feet with it. I'm actually on my third blade and I have a fourth. It is fairly sturdy overall and I have found all the movements to be smooth and precise. However, I do have some caveats:

1) 1" arbor... this is annoying as you have to buy a Rage blade or look for another one. Most are diamond or 5/8"
2) Clamps are almost worthless. Another reviewer mentioned it and it's true. As soon as you try a 45 the clamps are in the way. For a blade that was designed to do miter cuts I don't get it.
3) All markings are off. Don't trust them at all. I don't know how that happened but it did.

I love it!! Dec 12 2009
By P. Sopko - Published on Amazon.com
I have found it to be very well built and so far no problems. I currently use it at a sculpture studio where I weld at. So, I'm not a full-time, professional welder, who uses it every day, all-day. But, I have been cutting through 1/4" steel no problem for a project of mine. It's cutting speed compared to a 12" or 14" abrasive saw is many times faster. Compared to a Miller Spectrum 375 it is also much much faster which is the reason why I bought it. The steel I am cutting is 11" in width max and this cuts up to 11-3/4" (IIRC) so it really fits the bill.

It has a laser sight which so far seems to be fairly accurate. The sliding action if fairly smooth and the rails are about an inch in diameter. The miter adjustment is the squeeze grip type with a tension knob. The beveling action, which I have not had a chance to use yet, could be a tad better. If you needed to specifically use a saw for miter cuts then another one that has a better adjusting mechanism might be preferred. With this saw you have a lever that you release tension and then you rotate the armature. It works well but I'd be nice if it was as robust as the miter adjustment mechanism. However, it is a solid lock on your angle so it does work as intended.

As far as blade longevity I do not know. If you were to line up my material end-to-end I have probably cut through 40'-50' of 1/4" steel. The cutting speed is now slowing down to that of a 14" abrasive saw and I am still on the packaged blade but your mileage may vary. Rage also has another blade specifically for steel, the 10BLADEST. I will try that next since most of the work I do is in steel.

This saw is amazin June 20 2009
By R. Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I use a similar saw at work (Dewalt) and this thing is so much better.
While it is heavier, it also has a much better vise and accessories.
This chop saw cuts metal, wood, or plastic like a hot knife thought butter.
Not to mention is almost haft the cost of other name brand tools.

They Changed The Design Damn It! Sept. 22 2014
By Jim Valentine - Published on Amazon.com
I'm giving this previously excellent saw (5 stars) one star because they changed the design without changing the model number sometime in early 2014. I have 5 of these saws now with my crews, and obviously I wouldn't have 5 if I didn't think they were pretty damn good for the money. But the last one I got was changed substantially, presumably to save the manufacturer some money. I don't think I'll be ordering any more.
The old saws had:
A strong and well built cast aluminum base - very heavy duty
A much better mechanism for locking the saw in the down (shipping or moving) position
Basically much better built all around

The new version has:
A cheap stamped base that will surely bend or break much more easily
A little piece of chain to hold the saw down for moving/storage instead of the built in locking tab of the earlier model
A cheap feel all around

There is one good thing about the new saw: The handle design is much improved. My only complaint about the old version was the handle, which was badly designed and difficult to use with one hand if the saw was mounted at workbench height as all mine are. It's as if they designed it to be used sitting on the ground. Despite that, the original version of the Rage 2 was the best metal cutoff saw for the money by a wide margin. It certainly wasn't near the quality of the best saws, such as the Rigid cut off saw, but that saw is 5 times more money than the Rage. I wish they hadn't changed anything on the new Rage II but the handle. Then it would be 5 stars plus.

Purchased this saw before Amazon carried it...but I LOVE it !!! May 14 2012
By Vette Memphis - Published on Amazon.com
I've used this saw in the field to cut 2" x 1/4" T drill pipe and it cuts steel as easily as you would cut a pine 2 x 4.

The cut is cold enough to touch your cheek immediately after finishing. Try that with an abrasive blade, torch, or plasma cutter. (no don't)

I would not hesitate to purchase this tool again.
