Been looking for a compound mitre saw for a while, and these are back in sale.
Big fan of Parkside tools, has anyone had experience with these from yesteryears?

Powerful motor and Ø 210mm saw blade with laser cutting guide for high precision work on wood and plastic
With tiltable saw head and adjustable mitre
Double-bearing slide rail for precise cutting, and 2 clamping devices and lateral support brackets for securing workpiece
Includes dust collection bag and 2 spare carbon brushes
15000W* (is this a typo?

The Evo blade is multi purpose TCT, which means it also cuts stell, aluminium, copper as well as wood, plastic and composite.
The Parkside will cut wood and plastic.
The Evo has a load speed of 3750 rpm, the Parkside loads at 5000 rpm, the lower speed helps to minimise kickback of material and will prolong the life of the cutting edge.
The Evo cuts marginally deeper.
The Parkside is supplied with 2 extra carbon brushes, to me this is an indication that it is not designed fo-r constant use, and is probably a tool only for the odd job now and again. Most cheap, budget, lower spec power tools will burn carbon brush sets out very quickly indeed, this is a major red flag for this product.

The Evo i have owned for about a year gets extensively used, and has never missed a beat, it is a superbly made item. A lot of professional tradesmen i have contact with daily, use this saw as an everyday job mitre saw.
Its your money...take your pick.

Heat added

Tempting

Also have the Mitre Stands for £39.99

Aldi also have one from today, but it's £10 more.

15000 W? Expect plenty of heat on this one.

1500w is reasonable power. Similar to my Titan from Screwfix however this has the 3 year warranty.

Uprate that fusebox.
This one is going to take more than 80A (_;)

The Aldi one is 10" as opposed to 210mm (8.2 inches) and 1900W.
This would make the Aldi saw a better deal (for me).
Both products are hot though.

Just ignore this deal, spend an extra 20.00, and get the Evolution from Screwfix....it is in a different league to this Parkside one.............IN MY MOST HUMBLE OPINION.
The leg set from Aldi to house this are a good buy.

Thanks, very useful

I got the Evolution Rage 3S about 2 years ago and have hammered it since, still going strong. Brilliant bit of kit.

It's not impossible that the Parkside one could be every bit as good and in fairness I've had a few Parkside tools and they've all been decent for the price.

That said, if you want a chop saw, just get the Evolution.

Amazon reviews (and elsewhere) warn of accuracy issues on the Evo. Not heard anything re this issue on Parkside. Comments?

i mitre have to pick one up

I have this Parkside one, bought a couple of years ago. Great tool at a low price, BUT: for some reason it won't cut right into the far corner so I have to put a strip of wood behind the piece being cut to ensure it cuts right through. Strange but true.

Hardly strange. You just need to set it up correctly, it's not rocket science. Here is an idiots guide for you

I have the evo 3 from a previous deal on here for £79 screwfix ebay outlet I think. Great saw but needed squaring up. I think 99% are set up correctly out of the box but it is better to make sure. I always check it each time I use it as it could have had a knock from something or my ham fisted brother might have used it.

Thanks for your 'help' mate but that's an answer to a question I didn't ask. Still, you had a go.

Check your stops.

I see Amazon are having a lightning deal at 8:05 pm tonight on an Einhell one. Might be interesting to see what the price is (I don't have a prime account).

It's up at £101.66

I was looking for a mitre saw recently but they all seem much the same "quality".I have a rough old b&q one already and wanted something nicer to use. Ended up buying a used old elektra beckum for £95 - very nice in comparison.

Me too, although divorce sorted mine out without any sort of rage therapy.

In the hunt for a mitre saw. I see there are quite a few different evolutions in the market. Anyone with any experience tell me the differences in the 3s + - etc? And is the bog standard one at £100 good enuf compared to the more expensive versions.

Regarding the Evolution mitre saws:
- Fury is entry level, Rage is slightly better (but not quite pro)
- In the Rage range, there are 4 mitre saws: the 3S and 3S300 use a small 215mm blade (the 3S300 has can make straight cut with a with of up to 300mm, the 3S is limited to 210mm); the Rage3 is the next model up (254mm blade, which can cut deeper pieces of wood up to 300mm width). The 3DB is similar to the 3, but with a double bevel cutting feature and the ability to cut some slightly larger pieces of wood
- the 'Plus' denomination means that some accessories (dust chute, marginally better blade with more teeth, etc.) are included.
- most seem to be available in 110V for use with a site generator/transformer or 230V (for home use)

More details can be found at http://www.evolutionpowertools.com/uk/build/mitresaws/

The best prices seem to be on Amazon (which sell the Plus version for the price of the standard versions elsewhere, although check voltages to avoid any mistake).
