Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shadetree A Fair Deal
While the motor is powerful and the blade cuts well the base and vise are really cheesy. Getting straight cuts are difficult. If you can live with that then it's a good deal at less than half the cost of a real saw.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mydogspot 14" multi-purpose rattle trap chop saw
When the package arrived i picked it up to carry it inside. There was so much rattling going on inside the box that I thought the saw was damaged. The box showed no sign of abuse. The solid foam packing showed no sign of damage. The rattle was the two piece guard. I don't know if there is stuff missing, but the guard is only held in place by sitting on the shaft and two small springs. With the blade in the down position and locked, there is very sloppy tolerances in the guards with front to back, and side to side movements. The blade has not made contact with the guard [ yet ]. The motor sounds terrible. I have and have had many tools that have electric motors. This motor is the worst sounding motor I have ever owned. The saw does cut good. I've made several square cuts with it and they came out nice. The blade cuts good. It doesn't throw sparks but it sure throws chips.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by machinist great value
This saw Is superior to fiber wheel saws. I have made over 100 cuts on 3/4 and 1-1/4 square tube. also 5/8 and 1 inch solid steel bar and blade still cuts like new.
the build quality of this lower priced saw is so-so. the pivot joint has some play in it causing the blade to stray a bit when you are cutting . but not enough to worry about. and the stamped metal base could be a bit thicker. overall great saw for the money. I would buy the evolution steel saw 2 if using it in an industrial setting. but for home shop use the rage 2 is quicker and cleaner than a fiber wheel saw.(tip : I think using a little bit of motor oil or wd-40 on the work piece may increase the blade life).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Feraldyi It cuts everything that it claims to cut and then some.
It cuts everything that it claims to cut and then some. Big improvement over an abrasive cut-off saw.

Cuts through metal like a hot knife through butter. Absolutely amazing cutting speed compared to an abrasive saw. This machine leaves virtually no burrs at all. I only have 2 complaints: 1.) The quality of the base and clamp could be a little better and more accurate. 2.) This machine cuts little chunks out of the metal, as opposed to creating dust. And those chunks of metal are hot and fly EVERYWHERE, so wear eye protection (it comes with one pair of goggles). Even with the shield over the blade and the little "deflector" in the back, somehow those metal shavings just fly everywhere! Overall I am VERY happy!
