Evolution runs at 4000 rpm no load speed

https://www.ie.screwfix.com/evolutio...-saw-240v.html

An ordinary chape chop/mitre saw runs at 4800 rpm to 5000 rpm , but apparently you are correct you can't interchange the multipurpose tct blades into other non evolution saws unless for wood only as advised here as they run too fast:

you can pick up a basic evolution (non rage) for 60 quid if its not for extended use and these cut steel but are a lighter made unit..

The rage 2 spins at 1450rpm . the one that spins at 4000rpm is more for timber with the odd bit of steel

I have one of these, it's a brilliant cut off saw for hobby use. It cuts cold and clean but does fire off a lot of small metal chippings.

Jaysus that's some saw to be cutting through an rsj, which is why iit's more expensive I imagine. Cheaper one ok for lighter use on narrow box section probably.

I have an evolution chop saw with multi blade, it's a great job and wasn't expensive either. A lot handier than pricking around with an angle grinder
