These cordless tools are brilliant. I bought the Circular Saw last year and it really is very good quality. On par with BOSCH.

The tools on sale are;

Cordless 18v li-lon Circular saw

Cordless 18v li-lon Hammer Drill

Cordless 18v li-lon Jigsaw

Full details and spec on their site.

The batteries work with all tools in the range and are quick charge. There's a few other bits like blades and bits available from the 18th to.

I can't stress enough how good these are for the price. Last year they sold out on the day of release, so be quick! Enjoy.

Fortunately, I have some Parkside and Bosch (or Bisch as you expertly call them) tools, and the build quality is very similar. In fact, there is a lot of speculation online about Parkside tools being made by Bosch (or Bisch). I suspect the reason you pay more for Bosch (or Bisch) is for R+D and marketing costs. I'm not saying they're exactly the same, but Parkside will stand well in a comparison with Bosch (or even Bisch). Enjoy you Bisch tools.

All the details are on the link to the lidl website.
Although I rate Parkside tools as pretty good, if the battery on the circular saw is the same size as that supplied with the other tools, you can assume it's not got a huge capacity, which means you're not going to get many cuts before it dies. I've got the Ryobi one system, and have 1 large and 1 small lithium ion battery (the small being roughly the same size as these) with a fast charger, and the circular saw is the only one that can run both batteries flat, faster than they charge - probably not an issue if you buy all 3 tools though.

Would the circular saw cut a 90cm wardrobe shelf in half? (Sorry if it's a silly question the fitted wardrobes have too many shelves so want to do a couple of smaller ones in a gap to match the finish as the selves were expensive I thought it will be a good idea)

It will, but the jigsaw might make a tidier job of it.

Disagree ,a better straighter job can be done with the circular saw.
Use a clamped straight edge and lower the cut slightly with each pass.
No idea how to use them properly, but I want one. Hammer is getting rusty.
Thinking of buying the cordless hammer drill..anyone vouch they are good and worth the money

You dont NEED to know how to use them! You're a man, you just need them

If I only bought what I needed from this site I'd be thousands of punds better off, have a decent liver left, be 2 stones lighter and have my spare room back.

Now stop messing about and go buy some.

Hold your horses, it's 18th of Feb. I think I will go for the saw and jigsaw, how good are these batteries. I have heard about the NiCad going dead if you don't use them, I will be a very light user, so will the battery die if it is hardly used?

they'll be okay for a year, consider them dead year 2. They are like phone batteries but worse (i know they are lithium ion) but charged every day replicates what you'll get with NiCad batteries. Stick with wired, if you're worried about getting a shock go for 110v and use a transformer.
Bisch! Bash! Bosch!

Has some heat!
does the 3 year warranty cover the batteries? I'm only going to be using these a few times a year if that. If the batteries are covered for 3 years too then sounds like an excellent option.
do these come with a case usually?

good for diyer.

No. No warranty at all on the batteries, so if they fail at any time, you need to buy new ones.

The drill and saw are a good deal. Look at that cheapo jigsaw though - I can almost guarantee it will not cut in a straight line, even if you bought the guide rail for it separately. I would instead buy a corded one for the same price, from somewhere else. Why does a jigsaw need to be cordless anyway, or the circular saw for that matter. A drill I can understand carrying up a ladder or somewhere else tricky to reach without a power socket nearby, but I wouldn't do that with a circular saw oO
Cold not Bisch.

Parkside are made by Einhell einhelltools.co.uk/cms…=69 who also make the Challenge Xtreme sold by Argos.
Bought all three last time. The drill packed in but the circular saw and jigsaw are great. Circular saw went through 40mm solid oak worktop no problem (you will need more than 1 battery though and they do heat up)

Einhell don't make anything they are just german importers of low price Chinese power tools. Some are better than others. I guess the best bit about these Lidl tools is the warranty. The drill looks a bit naff I have to say as does the jigsaw. It's hard to know if these are good value without knowing the battery capacity it could be low 1.3-2.0Ah battery which is low capacity making these ok value but nothing special. If you actually need one of these tools for a job today then they are worth considering but its certainly not a must have bargain while the price is cheap. I've seen much better power tool deals in Lidl than this.

You'll regret it if the battery ever runs flat and won't charge again.

Isnt the guarantee with Lidl though rather than the manufacturer?
Worth checking the wording on the box as that should say what's covered and what isn't

batteries are usually one year
how much are the batteries and where do you but them from?
