This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

You might not need the stand, but pretty much everyone who buys the stand will be using it with a mitre saw, and it will save your back and knees!

I've been waiting for a deal on the evolution mitre saw, and this is £17.50 lower the best amazon price I've seen for the stand (£45), so I think the package is a deal. The Mitre saw has never been reduced at Screwfix and is new this year. Reviews suggest significant improvements have been made.

This mitre saw is a Screwfix exclusive

Free click and collect, stores usually have plenty of stock.

Evolution stand: screwfix.com/p/e…911

Evolution 240V saw: screwfix.com/p/e…62x

Evolution 120V saw: screwfix.com/p/e…12x

This one is the closest similar one: amazon.co.uk/Evo…c=1

Its not the same, but similar spec and currently the amazon package is £254.94

Bargain. I paid 200 for the slightly smaller one without the stand and haven't seen them on a deal like this before.

The saw works really well, easy to use, even for am ameatur like me.
Good saw
Yes, I have this. I’ve been very pleased with accuracy and quality of a ycut wood

The 210mm one has been £99 for years, i paid £150 for mine with a stand about 2 years ago and that was just the normal price.
This was £99 & £50 when introduced, never bought it at the time and regretted it.

This is the slightly larger 255 which was always more expensive. There are 2 differences;
Size of material that can be cut
Age of the design - this one launched earlier this year and has better ratings on precision compared to its predecessor
Great saw (i have the R255SMS+ version) but the stand is mediocre at best. Flexes under modest load and quality control is lacking.

Voted hot because combined a great price but with the above caveat noted.
Bought a Bosch GCM 10 SD Professional for £250 second hand and it’s worth every penny in my opinion. I am just not that convinced about this brand, I better pay a bit more and have no issues if I need the machine.

is yours for sale then?
If not (and on consideration, even if it was) - its a rather pointless post.
Your comment could apply to anything.
I could say you would be better off buying a new Bosch as opposed to s/h etc etc etc.

Heat OP - looks a good deal and I am tempted.
Thank you! Seems a great deal and the reviews for this saw all seem very positive. I like that it has clamps on both side. Just have to wait and see if prime day has anything to offer tomorrow, but they hold your items for 21 days at screwfix for click and collect

I disagree, not pointless at all. All I tried to say is that you could get a good deal for a good brand going second hand. Do you have any experience with Evolution? If so you should post here and let everyone know as that would be helpful :-)
Good deal voted hot. I just bought a different saw package from B&Q for £125 (see hotukdeals.com/dea…985 ). I've used it now otherwise would have gone for this one.

There are lots of reviews out there for Evolution. They get good reviews

And one of their saws comes 2nd in a top 3 sliding mitre saw reviews mitresawreviews.co.uk/sli…aw/
Evolution are a fairly crap budget brand. Not impressed with mine. Flimsy and inaccurate. Bosch pro or Makita are worth the extra.
Can anyone rewiew on what this saw is like? If its unreliable screwfix is 3 miles from me and plenty in stock.

I'm not that convinced about your opinion.

Fair enough :-)
Is this the Rage series ?

Sort of. The Rage 3 circular saw is being discontinued in 2019. Screwfix launched this as an exclusive replacement in March 2018. My bet is that Screwfix have got a 1 year exclusive .... either whilst othe rretailers sell the old ones or to gain insight into how to tweak the new saw ahead of a proper launch in 2019.
have one of these two years now use it quite a bit still good as new and would buy again
