Never heard of it. I’d be afraid using it would be like being Einhell. ;-)

Is it a red one or a blue one?

Red is their trade range, blue for DIY/hobbiest.

I have a few Einhell blue tools, all bought because they were cheap and only ever expected to be used a few times.

Angle grinder, recip saw and one of those Fein type plunge/multi saws.

All of them have performed far above my expectations, they seem tough and do the job.

They are designed in Germany and made in PRC. I think they also have a two year warranty.

If it came to choosing between Ryobi and Einhell, I’d go with the Einhell. If I were buying something that was going to be used day in, day out, I’d shell out a bit more. Ultimately, it depends what you want to do with it.

I own several red/blue line tools from Einhell. Made purchase 2,5 years ago and they were my first biggest powertools for woodworking. They are cheaper then other, but here comes also their problem.
Sold Circular Hand Saw RT-CS 190. It was with Freud blade, was powerful, but setup was difficult. I have now Makita SP6000K and very happy with it.
Still have router RT-RO 55. I have issues with depth adjustment. Revolver stop just release or will not tighten to the end. Micro adjustment just change due vibration. This is next tool what I will change with Makita.
Next one is Belt Sander RT-BS 75. Usually stands and collect dust. I have used it several time for rough sanding. Who wants it? :D
Table-, disc- and belt sander BT-US 400. I use only belt sander and disc is side-mounted. Was not in balance.
And the latest. Bandsaw RT-SB 305. This I will keep until there is more work for this kind of tool. I want to change blade with better one. Made new parallel guide, because original is a real junk. Maybe it gets new stand, because original is too floppy and I can’t shift it so easily as I need.

I own Ryobi 125mm corded random orbit sander already a year and no problem. If I must choose between Ryobi and Einhell, then I will choose first one. But in reality I will save money and buy tools from Makita, Metabo or Kress.

I recently purchased on of these tables saws, the 1800 w red one. I have been happy with it except for two things.

The fence is difficult to set straight. While it has some adjustment I can never seem to get it parallel without fiddling.
The second problem is the blade came ~2mm out of alignment.

Apart from the above I have been very happy. This product is at the budget end of the spectrum. I have been looking about for some time before selecting this T saw. I have built a sled to off-set the 2mm issue. I try not to overload the motor and hope to have it for a while yet.

If you are after a budget product I believe this product will do the job unless you feel you can’t live with the issues I have raised.
If you or others could help me out with my problems feel free to chime in.
Thanx
