New 20v parkside performance tools in lidls next week.. 14th

20v Angle Grinder £99
20v Drill driver £70
20v Circular saw £99

5 year warranty too which is pretty good!

No idea how they compare to the other 20v parkside range but the 20v multi tool I have is great and was hoping to expand my collection, just wonder if the batteries are the same..?

Angle grinder will pay for itself after the first bike.

Also interested in whether the batteries fit.

Apparently not, I watched a German review of all the new tools the other week and they are a new fitting.

That's a shame, I'd have liked to expanded my Parkside collection with some brushless tools...

If I'm going to start another battery ecosystem then it will probably be with one of the more universally available brands.

That being said, these look good and I've never regretted my other Parkside tools.
So what if it's 20v? No mention of the size amp battery. If it's only something like 1.5 then surely it sucks. Aldi knock out a 20v drill for 29.99
I heard all the 18volt Einhell batteries fit which you can get from toolstation or Ozito from homebase as same factory makes the lot including lidl tools. I need to test this though as cant confirm...

It is a shame, I like their tools they fill my needs really well.

You're right , they are getting to that price point where you start to think about the bigger brands.They are not bare tools as usual, not sure why they did that. I hope they're not winding down the 20v normal stuff
It's almost certainly the same as Einhell, which means it will be pathetic. The Einhell cordless angle grinder is laughable; feeble and battery life of a few minutes.
That said, cordless angle grinders in general have really, really short battery life.

Looking at Lidl's flyer, the drill comes with a 2.5 Ah battery, while the angle grinder and circular saw ship with a 5 Ah battery... which seems reasonable.
Hope they do a multi tool.
Screwfix own generic brand, Titan, is cheaper!

Strange offer this. I bought some of the previous 20V range last year and in general they have been very good. I wouldn't have paid anywhere near £99 for the angle grinder - not even half of that. The best buy was the 4ah battery which made the angle grinder work properly. It kept cutting out with the standard smaller one. The SDS drill was pretty decent too. These prices are too near top end stuff.

Brushless and more powerful than normal 20v range, I think its an attempt to offer an alternative to the top end stuff.
Yeah I like the previous tools a lot but £100 is to close to makita for me. Battery powered angle grinders are always pants.

All the cordless angle grinders are not great. Einhell is naff though but the drill driver and impact are brilliant for the money..

$64000 question, As with all things parkside, it will probably appear at some random point in the year, but selected parts of the country and they will only have 3 per store

I think they are not bare tools because of introducing the new battery types, once they have been around for a while they may start doing bare versions. But like you say, it's starting to get into the price range that makes me think: 'I'll switch over to Dewalt' which I can buy whenever I want, not just at arbitrary times throughout the year...

Very true and the last point you make is what makes me say no to this performance series. The real massive issue with lidl tools is their availability. I have the impact driver and the sds, The impact driver is the best bang for buck power tool I have ever purchased but if it fails ... what then? can I get a replacement if I broke it today? No... can I get one tomorrow? No ..when can I get a new one?... next month.. who knows. Sure I get a three year warranty but £25 back on my debit card isn't going to drill holes. The SDS did have to go back as it had an eccentric chuck, did I get a new one.. yes but it took 4 months for them to come back on offer. Did I get a refund .. yes. I Luckily have a corded sds too but this is why investing in a battery eco system marketed as higher quality tools like this is so risky. If I trash a (insert geneeric brand) on a Friday afternoon I'll have a new body delivered next day or I'll go pick one up .... but you wont be getting a new parkside next day for sure.

Why can’t lidl carry on introducing 20v tools, like these brushless ones, with the existing 20v battery they have been trying push. One battery, lots of tools. If they are going to do this every 3 years I’d rather start a makita battery based power tool range
Looking at it now I think the switch in battery may be down to them switching supplier.

The old tools were Einhell and did fine for their price point but I think they have decided they can’t provide them with a high end brushless range.

These look very similar to the Stanley Black and Decker family, with the charger and battery connector shape looking like there mid-range line Stanley Fatmax/porter cable/craftsman at my guess.

Will be interesting to see where the share parts supply comes from when these are in the shops to get hands on with.

But like many others I can’t see me buying these, I have the team 20v multi tool and was planning on getting a grinder for occasional use and if that comes back in I might still do so.

But at £100 I may as well get a Dewalt to match my more regularly used tools

If you are just starting these are ace, brushless 5Ah battery for £100 but another battery type to maintain or make adapters for if they die nope
Saw these on the app then saw the price. Granted it’s brushless but as folk have been saying other brands around this price point will be just as good and much more availability from Screwfix etc.

also hoping it doesn’t mean the other range has been scraped. Been waiting to get the impact driver for some time but it hasn’t appeared yet

bought a 20v parkside battery from lidl to try with my ozito stuff, the fitting is very similar but won't fit, it was an 18v ozito tool so possibly the 18v parkside batteries will fit
Damn, I’ll be gutted if that means they’re scrapping the other 20v range. Only managed to pick up the multi tool and impact driver and have been holding out on the drill!
Anyone bought and tried any of the range yet? Bloody expensive. Hoping for a wee deal a couple of weeks down the line
I had a look while in Lidl today. They had 1 drill left at 10am, 3 saws and 2 grinders in my local.

The saw and grinder come in a fairly big case. There are some German and french YouTube videos and they do seem fairly good.

But I’m waiting for other 20v stuff to come on offer again. I really hope they have stopped doing it.

I'm Hoping to get the other 20v grinder body tbf, hope they aint discontinued
Just got the circular saw and a blade, funnily the saw is 190mm...and the blades were 210mm.. Didn't even checked considering they were one next to the other, anyway, the build quality of the saw feels a bit crappy considering the price, so I will probably just return it
Looks like the standard 20v stuff is back next week! 28th
