Caved and ordered along with the stand.
Possibly, I did find this among several fruitless searches: https://www.amazon.de/Scheppach-Kapp-Zugsäge-HM80MP-5901207901/dp/B00WN0D0D4?language=en_GB#productDetails German Amazon site, but 3rd point google translates as "Cutting Depth Adjustment: Yes" Of course that still doesn't answer my original question about whether the Aldi saw has this feature. Jury is out. It seems that this feature (which is something I am very keen on getting) just isn't something which is mentioned by retailers.
Yep, but that could be a mistake. I can't see anything on any other site that lists depth stop or trench cutting facility. That said, I think I'm gonna buy one. Thanks OP
anyone know how heavy it is?
It's the forth bullet point from the link the OP posted for the Scheppach model in the description. "Trench cutting facility"
