Lidl regularly have their parkside version at £29.99 - better choice in my opinion

Got one of these for work at this price 3 months or so ago. Loads of power, great bit of kit. I suspect the Lidl special won't be a patch on this.

I have both, and I think the OEM on them is the same factory. B&Screwfix pay a chinese company to badge them.

The Lidl's version comes in a hardcase and I am sure a lot of tradesmen/ diyer's would prefer to protect their investment albeit a small one.

The only thing missing from the Lidl version is the worklight, but once you are sawing away - the worklight becomes pretty useless. Like the lasers screwUfix demand to put on their tile cutters - bloody useless, once the tile is pushed against the laser its no where to be seen, Yes I know its supposed to be a guide - but it just interferes.

If someone is on a budget, the Lidl version might be a better choice, it too has tool free blade change.

For the rich amongst us - the original SawlSaw from milkUwaukee

Is this effective in cutting mild steel. I am thinking specifically of a metal kitchen worktop support leg.

If you have the right blade then yes. It made short work of some steel i needed to cut that was thicker then the gauge of a worktop support.

These are great for all the psychos on hukd, can chop a body up in minutes oO

I normally bin hardcases, take up too much room in my van.
The worklight. Yeah, mostly useless gimmick. Good on some of the makita tools I've got but not on this.
I'm not knocking the Lidl one. I can't, not seen the thing. In fairness they and Aldi sell some decent stuff at the right price.

I agree about the Makita's I own pretty much everything in their 18v li-ion, because everything works so well and the batteries work on the whole range, I have standardised all the cordless range to Makita

think i'm the only person to pay the full price of 80 for this a few years ago, even at that price its a tough piece of kit. Ive dropped it bashed it and shown it no sympathy (as 2 year no quible guarantee) and its never let up
