Technical data of the Einheill circular table saw TC-TS 820
The circular table saw has a table size of 50.0 x 33.5 cm, a height of 28.5 cm and a weight of approx. 11.5 kg. The power of the asynchronous motor is 820 watts and this is transferred to a saw blade with 24 saw teeth or 24T, a diameter of 20.0 cm and 1.6 cm thickness, which gives you a cutting height of up to 4.5 cm. The cutting height depends on the adjustable cutting angle which you can set to 45° or 90°. With a 45° angle the cutting height is reduced to 3.5 cm, while with a 90° angle you get the full 4.5 cm cutting height. The circular table saw is designed exclusively for mains operation at a 230 Volt and 50 Hz AC socket.
Other technical details of the Einhell TC-TS 820 circular saw include vibration-damped plastic feet, a rip fence that allows you to make precise cuts, and a circular saw that extracts dust to keep your work clean. Accessories include a 45° stop, a saw blade, a push stick and tools to change the saw blade.
Applications and special features of this precision circular table saw
The Einhell TC-TS 820 circular saw is ideal for you as a hobbyist or occasional do-it-yourselfer. Its strength lies in its very compact size, which allows you to use it anywhere you need it, as long as a safe stand is guaranteed. Although the 800 watt motor is neat and can handle all small and medium jobs very well, it is also designed for easier tasks.
In the professional area, more powerful circular table saws are common, which can also prove their qualities in particularly difficult work or in hours of continuous use. Since the saw blade can easily be exchanged with the supplied tool, you have the possibility to mount a saw blade with change teeth, which offers you slightly different cutting possibilities than the usual saw blade. The alternate teeth of the optionally available saw blade are particularly ideal for you if you are primarily dependent on quality and less on quantity for your work, because these teeth result in cleaner and more precise cuts.
Advantages and disadvantages of the Einhell circular saw TC-TS 820
It is not possible to make general statements about the advantages and disadvantages of this circular saw, because it depends to a great extent on what you expect from the machine, what requirements you have and for what work you want to use it. As a result, features that are a clear advantage for one user are a disadvantage for another. Ultimately, you will have to decide for yourself whether this circular saw will meet your needs, or whether you want to look for an alternative. Therefore it is better to talk about strengths and weaknesses.
What are the strengths of the Einhell circular saw?
As already mentioned, the greatest strength of the Einhell TC-TS 820 circular saw lies in its small size and comparatively low weight. If you are a do-it-yourself enthusiast and have a bit more power anyway, then it’s no problem for you to take the 11 kg, only 35 cm wide unit to where you need it.
The handy dimensions make this circular table saw particularly suitable for smaller jobs where no excessive motor power is required. At the same time, this allows you to work with a much higher degree of precision.
Especially if you use special saw blades with alternating teeth or a simple but very fine toothing, the smaller chip size allows you to make finer and therefore much cleaner cuts with this compact Einhell circular saw.
What about the weaknesses?
The weaknesses of the Einhell TC-TS 820 circular saw result directly from its strengths. The low weight can only be realized by the relatively weak and accordingly light 820 Watt motor. This makes this circular saw hardly or not at all suitable for particularly difficult work, hours of continuous use or particularly hard materials. During such work, the motor would soon be overtaxed, would run hot and could eventually suffer a total loss.
At the same time, even with a large-tooth saw blade, it is only possible to make coarse cuts in large quantities to a limited extent with this circular saw, as the machine also reaches its performance limits here rather than models with more powerful motors. This is not to say that the Einhell TC-TS 820 circular saw is not very powerful, but only that it is better suited for some tasks than for others.
Conclusion and alternatives
The Einhell TC-TS 820 Table Saw is a recommendable compact table saw for you as a hobby craftsman and hobbyist, if you want to do smaller jobs where precision is more important than high cutting performance. You have the possibility to use the device very flexibly and are comparatively mobile thanks to its small size and low weight. However, if you are looking for a particularly powerful model that doesn’t need to be quite as mobile, then the Einhell TC-TS 2025/1 UA circular saw is a good alternative for you. With the base and 1800 W, the cost is higher, but so is the power.
