FAQs & Answers.

Click on the question to see the answer.
Who is this saw for?
This saw is suitable for all trades including general contractors, metal workers, joiners, plumbers, electricians, gardeners & landscapers, roofers, fabricators, dry liners, HVAC workers, makers/upcyclers, engineers, farmers, and builders.
How does the saw work?
A hi-torque gearbox and blade system, increases motor and blade life. An optimum RPM ‘chips’ away at metals to reduce chatter and wear which provides you a superior cut on any type of material. This displaces heat, unlike abrasion cutting, leaving a clean cut ready for you to work.
Where is the saw made?
The R255SMS was designed and engineered in the ‘Steel City’, Sheffield, UK. The blade is produce in Japan from premium steel. The saw is assembled in PRC passing stringent CE and TUV quality controls.
Does the saw come with a blade in the price?
Yes, a 255mm Multi-Material cutting TCT blade is supplied with the saw. Additional blades can be purchased online or in-store.
How do I keep the blade teeth from clogging?
Disconnect the power tool from the power source. Such preventative safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally. A little wax or WD40 can stop the metal shards clogging between the blade teeth. We recommended regular checks between uses to brush away any metal shards to ensure optimum cutting performance.
What are the saw’s cutting capacities?
The cutting capacities are: 300 x 80mm cross cut, 300 x 45mm bevel cut at 45˚, 210 x 80mm mitre cut at 45˚ left or right and 210 x 45mm compound cut.
What materials can the saw cut?
The saw will cut mild steel plate, square tube, angle iron, cast-iron pipe, flat bar, rebar, c-channels, aluminium, copper, strutting, armoured cable, cable tray, unistrut, wood, wood with embedded nails, wood based materials such MDF, chipboard and OSB, wood-plastic composite (WPC) and plastic.
We do not recommend cutting hardened high carbon, coated and stainless steels with this saw. If you require to cut these materials, please refer to the Evolution Steel range.
When fitted with the Evolution diamond blade the saw can cut stone, concrete and brick.
What happens if I cut through mild steel plate thicker than stated in the manual?
We do not recommend this as it will reduce blade-life. Please refer to the Evolution Steel range.
What is the correct cutting technique?
Don’t push down like a hot saw/abrasive wheel or fibre disc (which cut on speed/friction) as this will reduce blade-life and damage the teeth. Evolution saws spin at a reduced optimum RPM with hi-torque.
Barely push down and let the blade do the work chipping at the material. The weight of your hand is all you need.
Start up at full rpm and go all the way through and then back out the other side. Doing this each cut, you will have no issues when cutting mild steel.
Watch a video on how to safely cut steel here.
Will the saw bevel both ways?
The R255SMS will bevel 45˚ to the left only.
What is included with the saw?
255mm Multipurpose Carbide-tipped blade, top clamp, dual ended Allen key, and Instruction Manual.
What is covered by the 3 year warranty?
For full warranty terms and conditions please visit the Evolution warranty page.
Where is the serial number located?
The serial number can be found on the motor housing of the machine. 
Evolution R210SMS serial number location.
Where is the batch code for my machine?
The batch code is the first part of the serial number, found on the motor housing of the machine. Evolution serial numbers begin with the abbreviation of the machine followed by a letter. A = January, B = February and so on. The following 2 numbers are the year of manufacture. 16 = 2016, 17 = 2017, etc.
(Example of batch code: R255SMS-A18…)
What do I do if my machine needs servicing?
Having a power tool go down can feel like hitting a wall, so we appreciate how important it is to get yours fixed fast! Contact the Evolution customer service team here or by calling 0114 251 1022.

How to assemble an Evolution mitre saw.

    Assembles in three easy steps.

  • Insert rails through the neck & lock in place with the slide locking knob.
  • Attach the head to the rails and fit the blade.
  • Insert the mitre locking knob, top clamp and attach the base side extensions.
  • You're ready to go.


  • Compared to the fully assembled 255mm sliding mitre saw packaging, the box size has decreased by 40%. This makes it easier to carry and fit in your car.


  • Less ships, planes & lorries needed to deliver the same amount of boxes. Less fuel consumption, less carbon footprint, more environmentally friendly.
