This saw has so many great features to give splinter free precision cutting. Use with the Festool guide rail system, excellent for processing sheet materials as well as short cuts or use without the rail when working with a template or fixture. The saw uses a spring-loaded pivoting plunge action that combines with a super-fast blade brake to give fast, accurate and, above all, safe cutting performance. The features of this saw are seemingly endless. The 1,200W soft start motor has full electronic control to keep speed constant and monitor the motor allowing the optimum cutting speed for the material being cut, regardless of load, the ability to cut a standard 12mm against a wall thanks to its flush housing, there is a fine adjuster for the plunge, the blade has an undercut of -1° to 47° to give great accuracy. Dust extraction has been improved and an adjustable viewing window ensures you can see the saw blade during use. The clear window on the side allows you to see the blade, and markers indicate front and rear cutting points of blade at full depth, useful when cutting out apertures with the guide rail. The cut line stays constant in relation to the base, regardless of blade angle. Other features include: rotating dust outlet for the most convenient position and FastFix blade changing system. The guide rail has splinter guard, a cushion strip to grip on the underside and a slideway top surface lining.
Supplied complete with 1400mm guide rail and anti-splinter guard, 48T TCT blade, anti-splinter device and Festool T-LOC SYSTAINER stacking storage case.

Great sawThis is a really great saw. It produces clean cuts in hardwood, softwood and sheet material alike. I use this saw with a guide rail and have decided not to buy a table saw. One of the most impressive things about this tool, like most festool machines, is the dust extraction. Teamed with a vacuum extractor this saw captures dust brilliantly.

TS-55RWorld class saw. Fantastic kit as usual for Festool...

AwesomeThe trouble with these Festool plunge saws is that you use someone else's saw and that's it-"I HAVE TO HAVE ONE OF THESE". Then you get one and forever after you are thinking "how did I manage before I got this?" Superb saw. Amazing accuracy and clean cutting. The time saved on marking out and faffing about will pay for itself in a few weeks.

A joy to use.Purchased 110V version for on site mdf and birch ply fabrication. Cuts like a laser through both, fabulous finish to cuts. Have used makita and dewalt before, but at £350 quid for the festool its no contest. Cant wait to get to work to use it now, even on these dark winter days.

Just fantasticHate to sound like a broken record but since buying this saw a few months ago. I have been just blown away by it.the accuracy that I can get with a circular saw like this is amazing.iv since bought more guide rails,edge guide and a panther ripping blade which iv ripped 50mm softwood and hardwood like a knife thru butter.a joy to use.rather than replacing the table saw though as festool claims I think it works very well along side it,complementing it.has to be my favourite tool in the workshop now though
