Default Rage 2 saw

I picked this up about a year ago and I have been using it to make my columns in the new shop. I had an abrasive chop saw but it got carried up to the road with a "Free" sign after using this.

Here it is cutting my 4"x4"x1/4" columns. Not too shabby for under $200 at Home Cheapo.

Jeff, they say that 1 blade will last as long as 20 abrasive blades will. Time will tell. I think this is the cheap version sold at the box stores so I don’t expect much for the price.

Those things are amazing! I'll never go back to an abrasive one. Far less sparks. Better cut. And doesnt seem to I produce as much heat.

I cut a 1/4" slice of the material in another vid and picked it up with my bare hands right after I cut it. Basically there is not much heat put into the material. It cuts pretty square too but I did need to grind the bottom of each cut to get it close to perfect.

How's the saw holding up?

No fun throwing sparks in the summertime heat

No complaints about it so far. When I built my floor drain covers it worked awesome. I set up a jig and cut all the pieces and then welded them up.

When I cut my 4"x4" steel columns I did have to grind the bottom of the cut to get it a perfect 90*. It looks like the blade flexed as you reach the bottom of the cut but that was some pretty big and heavy stuff.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
