It’s not available right now but if you’re not in a hurry, it comes up 3-5 times a year on Amazon. Green works makes 40v batteries for a few companies so the tabs can be cut off to fit some stuff.
google can't seem to find it near this price with battery+charger? I'm also assuming that Greenworks batteries don't fit anything else and vice versa?
Oh they had some when I posted it. They seem to get regular stock as when I originally found it a few weeks ago they had some. I procrastinated few days and it sold out. I called them and they told me when more would be available then held one for me until they called me back.

Oh right - yes, it makes sense. I always thought it was to stop an arm crossing over the top of the blade on the outside chance something were to happen and so it kept the blade in between both arms instead. But you’re right, you would get to eye the cut if you could stand on the same side as the blade. I’m somewhat ambidextrous so never never thought about about which side the blade was so long as my arms didn’t cross it but I’ve got a different perspective today (y)
Yeah the 66mm would still need 2 passes on sleepers. So I'm right handed so my right hand is on the trigger grip so my body is already stood to the left of the tool so from a standing position I can see the blade and cut path. Whereas if I was using a blade right I would have to lean more over the top of the saw to see my cut path if that makes sense. The tools aren't designed for certain handed users just different applications and styles, a few times I would have preferred a blade right saw but overall the blade left was the best buy for me.
Ok, making sense. As for blade on the right - that’s for right handed folk? Guessing left hand on the other handle so the arm doesn’t cross the blade! 66mm one wouldn’t get through the sleepers so would still be two cuts anyway!
You can make your own track with 2 long pieces of plywood. Cut a thin piece of the plywood with the circular saw and attach it to the top of the rest of the plywood using wood glue. Be sure to have excess plywood on both sides of the glue joint.Place the circular saw on one side of the straight edge and cut the excess plywood.Flip the board and repeat on the other side of the circular saw
Yeah there's a 66mm brushless and a 66mm fuel I personally prefer the fuel over the brushless but the non fuel version is fine for DIY use.

Nice find @dazp - cheers for taking time to share :)
Wow we could be doppelganger's i also have a cheap Aldi/Lidl one, so i was exactly like you, it works so why do i need a dewalt one (im not a tool snob in anyway so my opinion is not based on the name) i was on the fence for ages then i got a deal similar to this, even after the purchase i thought id mugged myself as i didn't need it. but then i used it and the difference was insane, the clean cuts to make room for pipes, the crazy little angles you can cut at made it instantly worth it, the whole feel of it makes me think somebody really thought this through. my other multi tool still has a job as a sander so thats a bonus also. Just pointing out my situation as i was very similar to you. :)
I've got a corded Bosch and a cheap cordless Aldi one (both bought before I had DeWalt drill and impact driver kit with batteries), and can't really justify a decent DeWalt cordless one as well (and this offer had already expired when I saw it), but agree the class of tools is definitely useful.
Get one for your kitchen alone, im no kitchen fitter but when i did mine this thing was a god send, ability to cut out little hard to reach bits its so useful. With regards to the batteries if your not in the Dewalt eco system yet i started with a set impact driver and drill set with 2x 2.5 and ive never needed any more, i used these to drill my house wall to feed a cable to the outside plug i was fitting, so i always use that as my bench mark, yes a bigger battery probably would have made it easier but i wasnt there for days drilling the wall. Also ive had decent results with after market batteries (selling sites around the £25 mark) never had an issue with them but they are in my box purely as back up but they always work. Finally if you have batteries for other makes look into "badapters" they allow you to use other brand batteries, i have a makita circular but use dewalt on them, looks weird as hell though :) but works a charm.

I bought this too wish I did years ago it’s brilliant. I’ve been breaking up concrete and about to replace 2 slabs on my mind for ages.
Any idea on its weight?
Thanks for this. I went for it and the SDS drill arrived today. Managed to drill a couple of holes in a concrete fence post using the 1.3 AH without it dying so that's a positive start!
I use the 2ah battery on my dewalt circular saw , works fine and enough runtime for diy use. The 1.3 fully charged will run the drill ok but perhaps not long enough for multiple big holes.If you do buy a bare unit , just keep an eye out for 4 or 5ah battery deals. Remembering the dewalt battery rule :£10 per ah is a good deal.

Dewalt TSTAK-2 Tool Case - £12.42 (+£5 Delivery) @ ToolStoreUK£17.42
Dewalt TSTAK-2 Tool Case. This isn't the waterproof TSTAK 2.0 but still think it's a good deal. Free delivery if you spend over £50.
The plastic seems very tough to me, but I'm pretty gentle on them compared to some other people. Reports of breakages online don't seem too common though. There are quite a lot of video reviews from tradesmen on YouTube if you want some more info. The quality is very good, the lids and latches line up correctly (which is something I've had issues with on other cheaper toolboxes). I'd definitely recommend them at this price.
How tough is the plastic on these? Overall are they good quality?
Mine turned up this morning, both the boxes had stickers on showing that they came from a DCK551P3T kit (containing batteries + tools + cases etc.). The seller must be selling the parts individually. Each case also came with an insert which fits a drill (DCD796), impact driver (DCF887) and charger. The insert is removable, leaving the box exactly the same as the standard empty TSTAK. From what I can tell, these things come back in stock periodically. So hopefully this info is useful to anyone buying in the future.
Out Of Stock :(
I ordered a couple last night. Cheers for posting JJ0E, best price I've seen! I just checked the website again and they've now gone out of stock.

Managed to get myself 2. I have them on notification, have to be very fast when ordering. But I got in there. YES!
£5 delivery for under £50 spend. That ebay shop has sold 1,500.
Yup I've bought tstak2 from this company and it was around £13. You've got to stick your head in from time to time to check the stock as the stock alerts seemingly come too late?
This won't be worth chasing, they sell the TSTAK-II even cheaper. PowerToolMate ebay £19.99 iinc. free delivery. In stock. T-STAK II.

Not sure that this is a good deal. Paid £106 a few months back from Howetools. With regards to the bits and drill, I've done a fair amount around the house and honestly can't fault it. Not let me down, but of course, I don't plan to build a house with mine. Can't comment on longevity but so far so good
Rubbish screwdriver and drill bits bits, get ya sens a 2 battery model
Better by a country mile. These bits are cheese anyway.
Would say that's a much more useful useful deal if you use your driil a fair bit
If you don't need the accessories Rexel have a offer for two 5 amp batteries case charger and drill for £155
