How many types of Circular Saw are there?

There are three main types of Circular Saw; Standard, Track Saw and Plunge Saw. Evolution specialise in corded and Cordless Circular Saws our R185CCSX and ST2800 Track kit is the UK’s best selling Track Saw combo. 

What is a Standard Circular Saw?

The standard circular saw offers the ability to adjust cutting depth and blade angle before starting a cut, these saws come with a small parallel edge guide to aid straight cutting and are ideal for a wide range of cutting tasks on the job site and home workshop.

What is a Track Saw?

A Track Saw is a Circular Saw that is compatible with a Rail System, like our R185CCSX and ST2800 products. By mounting the saw to the track it is possible to achieve cuts up to 2.8m in length that are straight to fractions of a mm and rival the performance of professional Table Saws.

What is a Plunge Saw?

A Plunge Saw offers the features of a track saw and usually adds in an enclosed blade for reduced dust creation and allows the user to vary the depth of cut at any time. Plunge Saws tend to be much more expensive than Track Saws and generally use brand-specific rail systems.

Are Circular Saws Dangerous?

Any power tool can be dangerous if used improperly. Evolution Circular Saws are fitted with multiple safety features to help ensure safe and accurate cutting, articulating blade guards, electronic blade brakes and precision cutting guides are all standard fitments on Evolution Circular Saws.

What would I use a Circular Saw for?

A Circular Saw is the correct tool for making angled andsimple straight cuts into any flat-sided workpiece. It’s the ideal saw if you are putting up a wood-framed stud wall and need to make accurate 90-degree cuts. A Circular Saw is perfect for helping make straight and bevelled cuts if you are laying decking, interior flooring, framing, wood panels or metal sheeting or cladding.

Who needs a Circular Saw?

If you have a project where you will need to make perpendicular or angled cuts into a workpiece, then a Circular Saw is often the correct tool. When mounted to a track system you can make long straight perpendicular or bevel cuts that rival the best Table Saws.

Should I buy a Circular Saw or a Table Saw?

Buy a Circular Saw if you want a mobile, hand-held tool that can make perpendicular or bevelled cuts in flat-sided materials. They are also ideal for making cuts in sheet material; buy a Circular Saw & Trackif you haven’t got the space for a Table Saw.

Should I buy A Circular Saw or a Mitre Saw?

Buy a Circular Saw if you are making straight or angled cuts through square or large rectangular workpieces or cutting sheet materials and need the ability to make longer continuous cuts that Mitre Saws cannot achieve. For cutting precision Compound Mitre & Bevel cuts as well perfect end-to-end length cuts a Mitre Saw is the better choose a mitre saw. 

How does the parallel edge guide work on a Circular Saw?

The edge guide provides a backstop to position the saw at a fixed distance from the edge of the workpiece and allows you to set how far from the edge of the job the blade will be, so that you can fix a specific width of cut. 

Can I make perfectly straight cuts with the parallel edge guide?

It’s possible to make a good straight cut with a circular saw by just using the edge guide, but the cut will only ever be as straight and accurate as the edge of the workpiece you are cutting. You can’t make a straight cut with a parallel edge guide on a curvy piece of board.

What size circular saw blade do I need?

Choose a circular saw that provides the depth of cut that you require. Larger blades allow you to make deeper, faster cutswith a smoother finish. For DIY use at home many people find a 165mm circular saw is the size they need. Users who require more power and versatility in their circular saw usually go for a 185mm model. Our R185CCSX+ is our most popular size and offers a maximum 64mm depth of cut.

Do all Circular Saws have dust extraction?

All Evolution Circular Saws with Multi-material blades can be connected to powered dust extraction systems to help keep your workspace clean. The Evolution R15VAC Wet and Dry Workshop Vacuum can be used with all of our Multi-material Circular Saws and offer remote start-up for instant cleaning.  


Evolution’s metal cutting Circular Saws are either equipped with chip extraction ports (S185CCSL) or have integrated magnetic chip collection trays (S210CCS). 

What is the difference between the R185CCS and the R185CCSX models?

The R185CCS model uses a low profile base system that is not compatible with circular saw track systems. The Evolution R185CCSX & R185CCSX+ models are track compatible.

What saw blade is the best for cutting laminate flooring?

The best Evolution saw blades for cutting Laminate flooring are either the Fine Wood blades or the Thin Steel blades. The Fine Wood blade will be best for wood based laminate flooring types. Vinyl Laminate flooring boards often include a high wear protective coating on the top surface, made with aluminium oxide, which is incredibly hard wearing, for these types of flooring we recommend the Thin Steel blade which has a higher tooth count and therefore minimizes the abrasive wear caused by the protective wear layer.

How long will my blade last?

Blade life depends on the material being cut, the harder the material the shorter the blade life will be. Evolution only uses premium, Japanese sourced carbide in our saw blades. It’s better finished, tougher and longer lasting than more commonly used carbide grades. 

Cleaning the teeth of your blade, especially if cutting exterior grades of wood will help to keep your blade running cleanly by removing sap and resin build up. We recommend using a cloth dampened with spray-on automotive brake cleaner to keep your blades in pristine condition.
