Detailed Description

Festool TS 55 REQ Plunge Cut Track Saw

While a standard circular saw is a useful tool, the Festool Track saw, with its ability for doing precision work, is in a class all its own. Smoothly sliding on an extruded aluminum rail, you simply lay the edge of the guide rail directly on your layout marks for the saw to make dead accurate cuts. The bottom of the rail has rubber grip strips to help the rail stay put while cutting. Optional clamps slip into channels on the bottom of the rail, securing the rail to your material without impeding the saws travel - along the full length of the rail.

Cutting is safer since the blade remains housed out of harms way until you plunge the saw down as you begin to cut and a built in riving knife minimizes kickback. You get portability, ease of work flow (you bring the saw to the work, versus having to lift heavy sheet stock onto a table saw) and efficiency, since the rails edge is the finished cut edge, no computing for guide rail width is needed.

The Festool TS 55 REQ (and the TS 75 REQ) track saws are the perfect precision power saws for building cabinets, case goods and furniture, especially when space limitations wont allow a table saw in your shop or garage. But for those that do own a table saw, these track saws help you process large panels down to manageable sizes for cutting on the table saw and let you cut long miters unobtainable with a table or panel saw. And when you partner a Festool Track saw with an optional MFT/3 Standard Multi-Function work table, you get a miter saw cutting workstation of unparalleled capacity and versatility.

The TS 55 REQ track saw has an exterior housing that provides a view window to the leading cutting edge of the blade and affords tighter, close-to-the-wall cutting. The blade tilt goes from negative 1° to 47° and a blade depth scale lets you read the blade depth while on the guide track or sitting right on the material. A micro-adjust lets you fine tune the depth of cut, a retractable splitter now can extend into a previous saw kerf for blade alignment, while the improved splinter guard keeps your cuts clean. You get a powerful variable speed motor , unparalleled dust extraction with a vacuum connected and fast blade changes. The 160mm(6-1/4") 48t blade cuts 50mm (1-15/16") at 90° and 37mm (1-7/16") at 45°. (Listed cutting depths are on the track. Add 5mm for cut depth off the track.) Includes a 55" guide rail & Systainer case. Weighs 9.9 lbs.
