There are a few budget power tools I’d never buy. This is one of them.



Nothing wrong with this. Good quality. Rebuilt my 3 storey house with it, saved me massive amounts of grief and it still works like new. Lidl power tools are generally tested to much more stringent standards than most. They're made in Germany after all...

So whay are the budget tools you would buy?
Come on folks, these are meant for occasion use by us non professional peeps...
For £50, really can't go wrong, it WILL be luck IF your local branch has ANY at this price...sadly.
-but...definitively heat from me.
Worth chancing your arm as they say.
Any good for occasional butchering?

I enquired at the Saudi embassy and they've given this one a thumbs up.
Not much wrong with most Parkside tools for home use.

Will this cut things other than tables?

It also does occasional chairs.

I’d avoid anything that needs precision but often skimped on cheap tools. Pressed tables and slack fences: table saws, band saws and drill press being good examples. But my main reason for avoiding a cheap table saw would be safety because they are one of the most dangerous power tools.

Will the blade fly off because it's cheap?

No but a cheap fence that doesn’t sit square is a prime contender for kick back. Suggest googling table saw injuries if you want to mock further..

That's tenuous. But f anything, it will be a fraction of a degree and not an issue for safety just quality. But most people would ensure a fence is square for square cuts else they should not even be using it.

I understand the precision issue but I've got several "budget" power tools and none with issues. As for safety these meet UK standards and German standards so little else in the world exceed those 2.
However I would consider that reliability, or lack thereof, is a common flaw with budget tools but the parkside comes with a 3 year warranty so that doesn't bother me.

I agree. I bought one of these after my DeWalt was in for repair. There seemd to be a bit of play in the saw blade so I exchanged it but that had the same problem. I returned it for a refund.

Maybe it was a bad batch I'm not sure.

I was told these are made by Scheppach.

Most people? £100 or £50! table saws are going to be lapped up by precisely the kind of people who don’t know what they are doing. Anyhow I’ve said my piece, people can weigh it up for themselves.
Shame these outlet offers dont end up in a store near me

xciv, while the risks of injury are right, i do hope you warn everyone off every table saw under £300 as generaly Lidl's tool can regually be found to cost 1/3 of the branded verstion of the same product just Lidl paint then green

As a previous poster said
"As for safety these meet UK standards and German standards so little else in the world exceed those 2."

Also not many tool companies offer a 3 year warranty. Confidence in their own quality is obviously high.

The UK & Germany are part of the EU so they both have the same EU standards (CE) not separate ones..
Had one of these for a while now. Set it up right and don't overload it and they are a gem for the price. I generally only cut sheet material, nothing more than 30mm. I've been a joiner for 35 yrs and had many more expensive makes (still do) which are more solid and a small bit more accurate and faster but use it within its capacity and you won't go far wrong. All of these tools are dangerous and utmost care should be observed with any model, do that and you will be fine.
