Been waiting a long time for this to come up again, according to the pro's, these can't be beaten for accuracy vs a normal circular saw.

Next cheapest to be found at double the price.

update:
I have found both the blade and track to be fine for what I want, (I'm doing a lot of woodwork and DIY atm) and this saw is sooooo much faster and more accurate than my circ saw setup.

The track is a little fiddly to connect perfectly straight, the trick is to have it lying upside down and make sure its flat when you tightened the grub screws.
they are very rigid though very precisely machined.
Mine are perfect now. also trim any excess of the rubber guide and low friction plastic strips, mine overlapped a tiny bit.

The blade could be upgraded if your super serious, but consider a good blade costs £30-60, as much as this saw. It is as you would expect with most of the Aldi/Lidl/Schappach/Premium budget range.

ordering more track is super easy and super quick (and if your cutting 2400mm board its very helpful, an unlimited number can be stitched together and i've read floor installers have loads all connected when cutting.. floors)

I've not used one of these before - I need to cut an opening in a 38mm kitchen worktop for a sink opening, I usually use a wood drill bit as a starter, then use a jigsaw running along a straight edge. Would this be suitable for this sort of job?
The 20v impact driver is back too at £20 bare. That's awesome.

It’s what it’s designed for and so you will be fine.
Looks good.
Good find.

Unfortunately there is not a lidl near me, but for those who can access one, this is great.
They are also selling the cordless multitool which is a truly amazing bit of kit for £30

Don't use it to much for sanding though as it can clog up the insides, I had to have mine apart and cleaned after it developed an electrical short from all the plaster dust

Pretty sure they're only £25 - I bought one last week
sorry for dummy question - i'm assuming the difference between this and the Evolution Circular saw is that this "plunges" as the name suggest? so you can start cutting in the middle of the material? eg kitchen sink hole
So this is basically a sort of mobile sliding mitre saw?
I wonder if my Dewalt Plunge saw would fit on this? Hmmm might have to go see.
Think I'm gonna get this and make a workbench setup so I can clamp the guide board and turn it into a sliding saw with extra wide cut. Hope the blade is good quality.
Get a Dewalt xtreme blade for it - it's slimmer and cuts a bit cleaner than the stock one. Used this saw with one of those to cut 40mm oak worktops and it was great, though as a perfectionist I did hone the edges with a router you could probably just hand sand to take off any tooth scours the cut was so good

Yes, but be aware that you'll still need to finish the corners with a jigsaw because of the circular nature of the blade. I've long heard how good this model is for the money and that the tracks will fit the Festool tracks, but can be bought for a fraction of the price (about £18 per 1220mm length I think) from the Parkside distributor. I will be keeping an eye out for one.

The biggest benefit of this type of tool is making straight cuts with minimal set up. Aligning the edge of the track with where you want to cut and it will move in as straight a line as the track. The plunging action allows you to make stop cuts in the middle of material. Track saws are very useful if you want to cut up sheet goods like 8'x4' boards of plywood and can be as accurate as you can set them. With a suitable worktable set up, they are as versatile as a table saw in much less space.

Thanks, I'd been wondering about that myself. I think I can justify this as I need to reroof my flat roof, so will be cutting up some waterproof ply or OSB shortly, and this could be handy for that job too.
Anyone buying one of these then I suggest you check the soleplate on how it's screwed to the body. On mine two of the machine screws had been cross threaded leaving the heads of the screws stuck up. If I hadn't noticed I could have easily damaged the surface of whatever I was cutting.
I bought one of these last time they were on sale, I’m a joiner and it gets used most days. I must have had it about 2 years and it’s still going strong. It has enough power to cut though 35mm oak. A few pointers though. The rails that it comes with are rubbish but fortunately it fits on the Festool rail which is much better but costs around £50. Also mine is starting to bow out in the middle by a couple of mm when cutting. It’s not much of an issue for most applications but worth bearing in mind. Dust collection is ok when hooked up to a shop vac but not excellent. Iv also changed the blade to a Freud blade which is far superior to the one supplied. All in all a decent saw for the price but I’m ready for an upgrade.
Pretty sure it was only £59.99 the last time it was on sale. It did sell out quick though so Lidl know they can get more for it plus, of course Brexit etc etc etc.
