Been looking for a Mitre saw for a couple of weeks. Not sure how this compares with the recent Metabo deal or the Evolution, but discounted from £135. Anyone got any history with this make or comments on accuracy and build quality??

My father has one of these, works very well but the handle is always rather warm, we believe because of the built in LED
OP, I bought an evolution one about 5-6 years ago, don't know if they fixed the problem now but when your cutting a fixed angle the table would move so you get a wonky cut. It was a right pain in the backside doing the skirting boards.
I have this one. Love it. It's a bit fiddly with the screws and even if you have it set perfectly it can sometimes not stick to the settings, buts that's rare.

I find the laser, once aligned properly is perfect. Great cuts.

I was in the same boat. Wanted a slider for cheap and this was a winner. 310mm cutting width is also insane. So good.
Also, the dust bag fills in about 3 cuts.

Plus, the thing on the left (clamp) you only have one. Would have loved to have had one the other side too.

That'll be my only critique.

I agree with the dude above though, the handle does get warm and if you look inside the motor (in the handle) when you kick it off, it does spark some.
If you want a saw for accuracy then forget this. The rear clamp (when doing bevel cuts @ any angle) does not grip and cuts off a degree or two. The handle gets warm due to a small transformer inside, which powers the laser. If you set everything to 90 degrees then put a square against the fence and blade all should be square (if not a bit of compensation will be needed to bring it right). Then with the blade slid all the way towards you and the square against the edge of a blade tooth/fence; push the handle/blade away from you on the rails... If the blade tooth does not track parallel to the square then the whole thing is junk as the head has not been pinned to the rails correctly (and there is no adjustment for this scenario). As for the dust bag, this only collects about 25% of the dust created.
Many thanks for all your comments - really helpful, some positives and negatives - I guess for this price bracket they will all have some niggles - but accuracy is key with mitres for sure. Good thing with Toolstation as easy to take back. May wait another week and see if any competitors start dropping their prices!!
Double bevel to I see.
Now very put off by review of Einhell customer serice on Trust Pilot. Just about one star - and ccomplaint after complaaint. I think it will be the Metabo, Titan or Evolution!

Never really understood the need for double bevel...why not just turn the wood around? Single bevel are generally more accurate also.
paid that for a makita cordless circular saw.

Different tool !
This is exactly the same as the Titan by screwfix. With the addition of some weird black feet
Cheers OP ordered, wanted a double bevel as it allows me to batch. I know it will probably need setting for each run but thats the satisfying bit.

Ditto. Utter rubbish. Purchased mine about 2 years ago. Same issue.

If you’re doing tall skirting or crown moulding you cant stand the wood up right to get the second angle. Cutting both angles with the wood laying down is the only way. Double bezel or compound mitre saw is the only safe way to it do.
Don't be fooled, people ... it's a Transformer!!

It's Sawbatron!!
