Overview of Evolution Steel Saw 2
If you need a power tool offering the highest grade industrial metal cutting on the market, take a look at the Evolution Steel Saw 2. The edge is vastly superior to any edge you could get with an abrasive chop saw.
The item weighs 61.5 pounds. Dimension is 23x12x24 inches.
Features We Like
The Steel Saw 2 cuts through steel easily as advertised. The blade glides through a heavy 0.25-inch wall tubing quickly with almost no pressure. It cuts off edges without the need or coolant and the result is immediately cool to touch.
When tested with smaller pieces, the narrow slice that dropped off was completely cool. The adjustment for the angle works well.
The Evolution Steel Saw 2 comes with extra motor brushes and safety goggles and ear plugs. With 15-amp and 2,200 watt motor, spping at 1,450 rpm without load, this saw is able to chop steel or any metal with ease.
When it comes to durability, on average, a long blade life averages 1,000 cuts in 2x2-in mild steel. That means you can finish a lot of work without having to replace the blade.
With the 66-tooth carbide tipped blade, this machine easily outperforms abrasive saws, cutting faster and lasting 20 times longer.
Small Downsides as Reported by Users
A user noticed that the saw clamp would not go to 0 degrees because the washer used was oversized. He needed to grind half of the clamp off before it could adjust properly.
Also, the chip cup cathes very little. Most of them become airbone and end up on the floor. This is reported by at least 3 other users.
If you just need to get the job done, this power tool provides more than enough to do just that. Plus the extra features, mainly no heat dry metal cutting, it is still a great tool. Comes with Evolution's 3-year warranty, and 7-year limited warranty, the Steel Saw 2 can be an investment.
However if you are looking for state of the art steel cutting chop saw, we're afraid you have to do more research or pick other metal chop saw from our list of recommended products.
