Erbauer ERB1721 210mm Circular Saw 230V
Best Ever Circular Saw
Great machine, fantastic straight cut, powerful and accurate, heavy but the weight helps the cut feel safer. Great Buy would recommend to any builder.

Your big but your good
I recently started a garage rebuild and my old bosch, which had done the job for 13 years was killed chewing through the 2x4s and so I needed something that'd rip through the beams and OSB boards. After a lot of reading and not wanting to spend a fortune I hit on this and its done the job fantastically.
I cant comment on reliability after 2 weeks but so far its been the mutts nuts and I said at the start; its big something that's a bit of a theme with Erbauer when I think about it.
My SDS drill is massive and err its Erbauer my router is huge and its an Erbauer but I cant fault them either its just you feel like your in 1/35 scale and using 1/32 scale kit.

Does the job, but returned it
Good price and no frill; does the job.
A bit on the heavy side.
However after a few days of good use, I had to return it because I couldn't change the blade. The screw was stuck and blade wouldn't budge (confirmed by Screwfix when I returned it).
Got a new replacement from Screwfix straight away; no quibble. However, the new one had exactly the same problem.
Maybe a faulty batch? But had no time to faff any further.
So got a refund and bought a Makita.
Great service from Screwfix as always though!

I bought this power saw several years ago and it has been a perfectly good piece of equipment but - the height adjustment lever is flimsy plastic and broke. Problem is that spares are not available so superficailly, the saw could become useless for the sake of a 10p piece of plastic. Fact is, I removed plastic lever and below is a 10mm nut so now I adjust using a 10mm spanner. Annoying and Screwfix really should say when equipment manufacturers don't provide spare parts. I've learned my lesson and now buy dewalt which is excellent
