Park side can be very good or incredibly poor. £50 for a Li-ion 20v saw is very cheap but having bought this the last time it was available, I can say it is in the incredibly poor category.

The guard was stiff, the motor weak, absolute rubbish. And I tend to be a fan of these cheap throwaway tools.

In contrast, the £75 track saw they did last year, whilst not great quality, is well worth £75, as was the £35 impact driver to name a couple of Parkside gems.

​I don't think they have done a 20 volt saw before.
I can't find any info anywhere, they did a 18volt one.
Theres a video here.... not very good and very cheesey but you get a better look at it I suppose... lidl.de/de/…159

Just for info, 20v is the same as 18v, just marketing to make it sound better. Li-ion nominal cell voltage is 3.6v as far as I recall, 5 cells equates to 18v. Freshly charged cells can be around 4v, hence the claim of 20v. Many companies do the same marketing 10.8v tools as 12v. (Especially in America)

BTW this is not a criticism of the tools themselves, and I'm not saying the batteries labelled 18v will physically fit these tools or vice versa.

Yes, I think you are right. The saw still looks the same though and my issue was that the saw itself seemed quite poor. Worth looking at again in case they have improved it.
Had some very good Parkside tools in the past, the sabre saw I used just yesterday to cut up a small tree. They never argue about returns anyway so it's worth a go.

​I'm just thinking of buying all 3 if the batteries are interchangeable, if they're garbage I'll take them back.
£130 for all 3 if they're half decent is a good buy.
Probably ok for the occasional user but ultimately you get what you pay for. Just put into perspective what it actually costs to design, produce and manufacture engineered products and you will understand the difficulties of getting a really decent low-end product.

Based on this, if one were to already own one of these 18v versions do we think the battery will be interchangeable with the 'new 20v'

As in i already have the 18v drill and i want a spare battery, it's better economy to buy a cordless jigsaw and get a free battery.

The tools and the battery charger look exactly the same, just with 20v written on them!
Very disappointing. I very much need cordless tools, but these ones are just toys as you can't increase battery capacity. I'll buy a lot more expensive Ebauer (the cheapest from screwfix) and can have as many high capacity batteries as I wish.

Don't understand whats the point of selling cordless power tools and not selling spare batteries to them? You do a bit of cutting and drive home to charge your tools?

​ebauer aren't the cheapest screwfix brand, titan are,

out of interest, how much is a erbauer battery?
last time I bought 2 identical combi drills, just so I had 4 batteries and 2 chargers.

as I've said above, I'm just going to buy all 3, so 3 batteries.

edit, I take it by increase battery capacity, you mean buy more batteries, not larger capacity batteries.

going for both saws, mainly because i can zip into Buildbase, buy my lengths,do the cuts on site and chuck them into my car sharpish. Better than using a handsaw, more accurate and at this price can't complain. €15 a battery isn't too bad if my German translate is working right.

​I'm still deciding whether to get the two saws or just get all 3. got loads of drills corded/cordless/SDS/breakers, but just £40 extra gives another spare battery.
guess I'll decide at about 10.05 am.

After having a quick shufty at the low res photos on the Kompernass spares site it looks like the part of the battery that houses the connections may be different, so it doesn't look promising. There may be valid technical reasons, or then again...

I did exactly that and bought all 3 along with the workbench. At £143 for the whole lot it seemed like decent value for what will be average DIY use at best for me.

I was actually only interested in the drill but I figured if I bought all 3 tools I got 3 interchangeable batteries to boot. Thought about it and if you strip out the value of the battery, then the value of the tool itself seems even more of a bargain.

Have only had a chance to look at the drill so far and from what I can see and feel that seems pretty well built. I can't imagine the jigsaw or circular are going to be that bad either so not sure why the comments on here criticising the circular saw? Hopefully it's not that bad.

Having had Parkside tools before they haven't been that bad in any shape or form for me and at this kind of money can't see much reason to complain. If they go broke there's a 3 year warranty I guess.

Been meaning to reply since buying a saw on Sunday....

I decided to get the Saw and Jigsaw so that the battery can be swapped between either. Both batteries appeared to be fully charged, according to the specs they are 1.5mah. The jigsaw comes with a few blades as well, both appear to be well made and the cases are robust. I also bought the aluminium clamping guide, that's a bargain at £10 in my opinion.

I used both tools briefly on a piece of 18 saw treated timber and it cut fine (albeit perhaps a bit slower than an 240v circular saw). The blade did snag towards the end but that was just due to the pressure of clamping, that said it does point to the fact that the saw is not especially powerful and on harder or thicker materials it may stop the blade. However most people would perhaps use this on floorboard/chipboard and I think it will be ideal for that. Overall I think the circular saw is a great addition to my toolkit, it's relatively light and obviously very convenient to use, the jigsaw (which I didn't really need)... is a good buy too and an extra £40 for convenience and to provide an extra battery to swap is a worthy buy.
