Unusable after a couple of weeks - twice!
on 28 July 2015
Guard sometimes get caught (more than my old Makita) and I prefer the motor on the other side of the blade, but it's a good powerful saw.
**UPDATE** Useless. Twice. The first one worked for a week or two before binding and stopping about 4 inches into most cuts. Amazon replaced for free but he second did the same after a similar time. No idea what I'm doing wrong with it, never had this problem with my Makita. If I lift the base away form the wood I'm cutting it sometimes continues but that is tricky, inaccurate and dangerous. From other reviews I understand the base might be out of alignment with the blade somehow but I don;t have the time to check/fix that - no mention of how to do it on the Evolution web site. I have an Evolution sliding chop saw which works fine for the money but this one is useless to me. Not sure if Amazon will accept another return, might just bin it and move on to a better brand.
