The Parkside plunge saw/ track saw is back on the 23rd of June. Although it is £10 dearer than last year it is still the best value for money track saw around. Perfect to cut sheet materials like MDF and plywood accurately. I bought one last year and my normal circular saw almost never gets used now. It is not perfect and it does kick up a bit of dust but for DIY use it is very good.

3 year warranty

I see the track is 1400 long, so will cross cut a 2400 x 1200 sheet well.
How do you fare when trying to cut a longer length? EG if you wanted to rip a sheet into two 2400 x 600 pieces...

Buy two of them and cut from either ends, simples
Can you buy additional tracks separately (and if so, is there a way to join the two together).

I'd dearly love one, but would need to be cutting lengthways down 2400mm sheets on occasion too unfortunately!

If I need to cut something longer than 1400mm I move the track after the first initial cut. With a little bit of practice and carefull lining up you can cut it perfectly.

Or use a fence and slide the track along that. I think I heard these were compatible with other tracks, so pretty sure you would be able to extend.

​ cut, move, cut. i don't imagine it's a cabinet grade cut so doing it in 2 goes is not the end of the world. If the cut is that good then I sorely regret the 500 plus quid I dropped on the festool plunge saw recently..
Picked one of these up today.. well two of these actually. Had to take the first one back, as soon as I switched it on I could tell something was out of balance as it vibrated badly with a loud whirring noise. There was also something rattling around inside the motor housing, sounded like a screw??
The replacement looks and sounds fine tho, not going to make a cut with it until I get a finer blade. Seems like a bargain for £70

Hi burgo,
I also picked one up today - I've only turned it on briefly to check the thing works. However, there is a *slight* noise as the blade spins down - almost as though it's rubbing against something. Is this normal? As I say, it's only relatively slight, so I've no idea whether this is usual?

Hi, the noise and vibration from the faulty one was pretty bad, it was noticeable straight away and had really unpleasant sound and wobble to it, it was a lot more than just a slight vibration or rubbing while it winded down so I think your saw sounds fine.
The motor isn't as quiet as I thought it would be but it's no big deal.
