The Evolution DISCCUT1 12-Inch Disc Cutter is a powerful circular saw that is not only easy to use, but it is maintenance free also. As compared to any gas-powered cut-off saw, this tool is definitely light weight. It is an electric-operated saw with an 8 inch cord.
Why do you need a circular saw?
A circular saw is one of the most popular tools amongst woodworkers, masonry workers and metal fabricators. If the saw has an appropriate blade, you can use it for cutting a variety of surfaces including wood, metal and tiles. The Evolution DISCCUT1 comes with a 4″ maximum cutting depth. Its 20 amp / 2400W high torque motor has plenty of power. But you have to plug it to 20 amp circuit only or you could damage the saw. There is no emission of harmful fumes, so you can work with it even in a closed area.
Basics of a circular saw
-A circular saw should have a blade guard, which covers the saw while it is not in use, and moves back when you use it. The Evolution DISCCUT1 has a safety guard that is fully adjustable.
-It should have an ergonomic grip so that the user can use it for extended periods of time. This tool has an ergonomic soft-grip that is positioned in the middle. The front and rear support handles are also positioned in a way so that it accurately cuts in vertical as well as horizontal ways.
The Evolution DISCCUT1 comes with a spindle lock mechanism, which helps in quick and easy replacement of the blade. This tool comes with a 12″ diamond blade.
With a 1.4HP and 5000 rpm no load speed, its maximum depth of cut is 4″. The recommended maximum duty cycle is 20 mins. Under load its sound pressure level is 102.4 dBA and vibration is 4.8 m/s2. It weighs 21 lbs, which is on a heavier side.
You can use Evolution DISCCUT1 for years outdoors or indoors, and it will withstand rough use. There will be no signs of wear (of course you may have to change the blade).
Since the cord is just 8″, you may like to buy an extension cord. You have to buy an adapter plug if you are using it in the US.
This tool is available at Amazon for less than $250.
