First time I have seen this type/style of Mitre Saw at Aldi and it looks good to me, especially as it will bevel on both sides rather than just one (so you don't have to turn the wood around for certain cuts).

Lidl are also selling a sliding mitre saw for the same price (I already have it), the Lidl one is good but I think this is better..

It also has a 3 year warranty.

With an input power of 1500W, this powerful saw boasts an exciting range of features.

Just what I need.
Like the double bevel option, that the Lidl saw hasn't got.
Anyone know the cutting parameters (sliding-width & depth of cut)?

how accurate is this compared to more expensive versions like bosch, dewalt ?

The accuracy won't be a problem, it's the general build quality that won't be that great, but for 80 quid can't really complain.

Being a 210mm blade, it's probably 60mm depth and 220 length at 90 degrees.

Hot.. but these only cut into 60mm of wood, I need a bigger blade for chopping firewood...even if its just a simple chop saw ...if anyone has seen anything.

Pity that I recently replaced my mitre saw - good price for DIYing.

​I started cutting salvaged timber to burn with one of these, but switched to the band saw as alot faster and easier. maybe give a band saw a look?

I bought the older version of this from Aldi a few years ago. The only real downside on mine was the safety cover...which broke after a short time. The saw still works well...just have to be careful now...like old school DIY..

For 130 (117 if you know an over 60 on Wednesdays) B&Q do a Steppach 254mm bladed one. We recently bought one for decking and it's great.

I'd be interested to know this too as I'm in need of a new mitre saw.

I've checked out various different saws that I've seen in shops on display and all of them have lots of play in them and seemingly no adjustments to dial the thing in.

​You got me all excited, it's only a single bevel same as I already have.

I need to buy a saw to cut through 5cm timber, never going to use it again...think an electric saw will save my hands and arms, but want something as cheap as possible - Any help would be much recommended (I'm a total novice). Would you recommend this one?

Great price and double bar too which adds stability. Normally the laser function isn't that useful though, just a rough guide. Voted hot

A bulk standard chop saw may do what you want for less if you want to cut straight across a plank etc. This mitre saw is sliding so it will cut wider pieces of wood than a standard 210mm blade would cut. Depth of cut may be 50mm (not stated) but a 254mm or bigger blade will cut deeper if needed. The mitre cut means it can be moved left or right up to 45 degrees the double bevel means the blade can be tipped 45 degrees to both sides, most are single bevel which means it only tips to one side which is normally fine, but occasionally with a decorative finish you can't turn the work upside down to get the right cut and have to have the finished edge on the bottom as you cut, risking damaging it as the blade pushes through it.
I'm not great at explanations but hope that helps.
explanation of cuts

Double bevel means the 45 degree bevel or compound cut could be slanted the other way.

Spend £7 on a normal saw.

I don't even know how to use one, but as a man I feel I must have one.

Thanks for that - I see its also sliding ?

how does this compare to the £49.99 screwfix one?

I just walked into Aldi with the intention of getting this and was stopped by a guy in his 50s. Honest, this happened 10 mins ago.

He asked what I was planning to do with it. I said "amateur decking, some kids play equipment, a basic outdoor table and some bodyweight equipment."

He said "I have been a carpenter for 36 years and all my stuff is Makita. My mitre cost me £750 and honestly...this stuff is good enough and good enough is good enough. This has a three year warranty and you will be fine lad. Just make sure you get pre-treated timber."


Bought it on the spot. Cheers OP.

I don't think the Screwfix one has been recommended by a carpenter of 36 years out doing his grocery shopping

As well as this extremely important factor, the £49.99 Energer one at Screwfix is not a sliding one?

Just got mine delivered,
210mm 48 teeth blade
30mm blade bore
1.6mm blade thickness
2.8mm blade cutting width
Workpiece dimensions
310mm max cutting width
62mm max cutting depth at 90 degrees
Also found its fitted with a laser.
Now to find something to use it on.

Bought one. Can't wait to open it!

The screwfix one is non-sliding for starters.

Not sure about the bevels.

These blades seem to fit the machine, handy to have spares:

As I see many people placed an order, could someone please confirm what is the cutting depth of this saw?

i can tilt to the left for bevel cut but how do you tilt to the right? mine seems to be locked

Turn your piece of wood around.

I've returned mine and got a refund. There is a screw with a double washer holding a sprung bolt that seems to be holding the blade straight that had come off and won't screw back, the thread on the case was gone.

Overall impression. Very light saw (Aluminium frame I think), the quality seems to be okay baring the fault I had but on a device spinning 5000rpm I thought I'd save some more money and buy something better.

What you need is a 12" mitre saw. they have bigger cutting capacity, I have a huge Ryobi saw for sale, £50.00 its yours.
Used but fully working. collection from SE London.

You can't compare this saw with the likes of Bosch, Makita, Dewalt etc etc.
All the big brand saw will have electric breaks, soft start, constant speed regulator, positive stops for all common angles.
This saw is ok for the DIYer but not for pro carpenters.

I'm not at all surpised there're selling these for just 80 quid. I wouldn't pay a penny more .
These are mass produce and are selling all over the place with different names printing on them.
Once you set these saw up they can give you a decent cut but don't expect the same level of cuts you'd get from a Festool or Dewalt. etc etc.. the worse thing about this saw is that it's lacking soft start which is very important and stops the saw from jolting when you press the trigger.

I know this was posted 9 months ago but people still read these.

Anyway, the comment about build quality is absolutely WRONG. Both the Aldi and Lidl machines are GS and TUV approved and for anyone who doesn't know what that means, it's the Germany quality assurance standard which ensures that the item has been throughly and independently tested and has been passed as suitable for their intended task. The testing is rigorous and german consumers hold it in high regard.

Unfortunately, the UK is backward in this regard and most of the machines we buy in this country have not been tested by anyone other than the manufacturers.

So, in short, the build quality of anything with a GS or TUV logo is more than up to the job.

Do not confuse cheap german tools with other cheap makes available in the UK eg Silverline, Rolson, etc. They really are 'cheap' for a reason.

Not really sure why you bumped this? but there is a very big difference between "suitable for the intended task" and "good quality".

It's on sale again.... couldn't see the point of creating another Hot Deal... as it's essentially the same except the price is now £89.99

I do notice that the power is now stated as 1900W where as last years was 1500W

Original Poster

Actually looking at the images again it is completely different to last years one.... notice the more substantial bed.
