In Detail

Makita 3 Year Warranty (Registration Required)

This plunge saw from Makita is supplied with 2 x 1.4m rails, connector and storage case for the saw.

Why buy a plunge saw? Simple, it will allow you to cut a very precise straight line with ease and this saw is so well built with many features for the most precise cut when ripping and crosscutting.

The rail guides the saw perfectly, the rail has an anti splinter strip for a clean cut and the anti slip stips mean you do not even have to clamp the rail on most surfaces but additional rail clamps are available if required. The saw can also plunge for cut-outs if required. Driven by a powerful 1,300W motor (overload protected) with constant electronics to maintain speed under load for a very smooth cut. A variable speed dial allows you to select correct speed for material being cut. With a wide cut range and clear setting it can cut up to 55mm depth and 39mm at 45°, a 2mm scoring cut can quickly be made before the full depth cut, height and angles (-1° - 48°) are simply set with thumb screws, with positive stops for -1°, 22.5° and 45°.

Supplied with 2 rails and connector that has a replaceable splinter guard, anti-slip strips on the underside and top running strips for a smooth glide, 48T TCT blade and Systainer storage case with inlay.

It's better than the festool imo, although no maffel

As a kitchen fitter, I burnt the festool out, they are noisy and underpowered i feel. This makita for the cost, is better, well designed, lighter, more powerful and more ergonomic to my grip. It does all the festool can, the scribing function is perfect for laminate as well. The lack of riving knife isn't an issue, and I've never had a kickback, plunging sink cut outs ect. The rails grip well without clamps. The stock blades work well. Maffel is the best saw out there, but the rails slide without clamping. The Makita imo is runner up.

A quality saw at a reasonable price

Some of the reviews on this site are so inaccurate. This saw does everything it should, it's not Festool price but as a professional I can't fault it, I install high end fitted furniture and as expected the finish has to be high quality. This saw gives that finish, all I can say is some individuals need to learn how to use power tools properly and not abuse them. Mikita products are value for money and care utterly reliable. My saw is six years old and is still going strong being used daily.

Excellent, Accurate and Great Value

I was a little nervous buying this after reading a couple of negative reviews and because it lacks a riving knife. I'm also a big Festool fan.
I toyed with the idea of the TS55 for a long time, however I had the chance to use one for a little while and I wasn't whelmed over. Sure, it felt solid but there were flaws. I was particularly disappointed with its stability on the track when making bevel cuts, and with the lack of a score function (I didn't like the sacrificial plastic bit at all). So I held back and, well, dithered.
Then I saw one of these and was quite impressed by it. I gambled and took the plunge as it were (yes, a terrible pun).
So far I've used this extensively and I'm far from disappointed. I've used it to cut everything from laminate worktop to hardwood planks. I've even ripped floorboards out. Nothing has given me a problem. It cuts accurately in just about anything. It cuts pretty quickly, push it too hard and you can get a little burning, but that's true of any saw. Take your time and it's perfect every time.
Cuts in laminate are razor sharp with no chipping on the rail side. Very rarely chips the outside and never chips if the score function is used.
In hardwood cross-cuts are super-smooth with perfect edges when cut on a sacrificial surface. Rips are also smooth and crisp, even with the stock blade (though you have to be patient).
Cutting bevels is a dream; non of the toppling issues I've experienced with other saws.
Accuracy is spot on. Equal to my experience with its more expensive rival. Line up your rail and what you see is what you get.
The lack of a riving knife has so far given no issues whatsoever.
I can't comment on long term reliability but there's been no indication of likely issues. The stock blade has proved to be robust: it's eaten a few hidden nails without issue.
All in all, I'm really happy with this saw and have no regrets whatsoever in not paying the extra for its rivals. Not sure how I got by without it!

Very good track saw

Like others there is a trade off between makes for the price paid. I've had my saw and guides for quite a few years with moderate use as I'm a table saw fan. Recently it has become used more and more with excellent results. Recently I had several sheets of 8x4 18mm MDF delivered which I could not carry on my own. With a few pallets I set up a temporary work area on my drive, dust is a big issue, coupling up to my Record shop vac I was very impressed with how much dust was collected (little clearing up). Using my home made parallel guides and Makita track, the saw is very accurate and produces excellent results. The combined effect of using this saw more is that my workshop is making room for a MFT type work surface, intention is to use the saw more not less! My Dewalt table saw produces a lot of air born dust, even when connected to my dust extractor.

I'm becoming much more aware of 'dust' and this will be a key consideration for future purchases and this saw is close but probably not as good as the Festool equivalent. I need a new router and will probably go for one that extracts most the dust at source. For the professional and serious amateur, H&S and cleaning up after a long day must be a prime consideration, this saw has to be recommended and for its quality of cut and dust extraction. It's not a Festool and a lot of my tools aren't. if I had the money I would probably have more of the green brand around. As a none professional but wanting professional results I'm pleased with my purchase - its a bit of a compromise. That's life!
