Evolution Rage2 vs DeWalt DW872 for cutting aluminum

The Evolution Rage2 and DeWalt DW872 MultiCutter cold cut saws are compared. The DeWalt easily wins the aluminum cutting competition. An aluminum specific replacement blade is available for the Rage2 saw, but given the cost of the blade, one is better off starting with a saw that will work out of the box. For my needs, cutting almost entirely aluminum, the DeWalt DW872 works well, and the Evolution Rage2 does not. By spec sheet alone, the Evolution EvoSaw380 seems to solves the shortcomings of both saws, so the EvoSaw380 would worth a look when shopping for a cold cut saw.
