In the spirit Festool's unwavering pursuit of perfection, we've refined our best plunge cut saw and made it even better. The new TS 55 REQ represents the most advanced plunge cut saw and guide rail system we've ever built. Watch the video!
The TS 55 REQ is not your standard circular saw. With its accuracy and versatility, a better comparison would be to the most advanced table saws, miter saws or panel saws available. Add in its incredible portability and unbelievable ease of use, and you have a precision-cutting solution like no other, at home in the highest-end cabinet shop as well as an onsite remodel. With the addition of micro-adjustable depth controls and a flat housing for flush-cutting against walls or adjacent surfaces, the TS 55 REQ is our most advanced plunge cut track saw ever, which is saying a lot.
But, don't take our word for it. Pros and editors agree that the Festool TS 55 is the best track saw on the market.
We also have a great tutorial video that will help new TS 55 and TS 75 track saw owners get the most our of their saw right out of the Systainer.
You may also want to review the TS 55 Supplemental Manual which is far more extensive than the owners manual included with the saw, which is a great resource. Its contents are also applicable for the TS 75.
Fast set-up and break-down of material cutting area.
A contractor who uses Festool recently did some repair of cedar siding for a customer's 5,000 square foot vaction home in Southampton, NY.
Small, patchwork areas of damaged cedar siding needed to be replaced in numerous locations. This was accomplished more quickly & accurately because they didn’t have to move a cumbersome table saw around the perimeter of the house. Instead, the Festool TS 55 was used to cut/install siding onsite in narrow spaces. New siding was easily measured, cut, and install in individual sections to line up precisely with the original (which is stained grey in the photo) cedar siding.
The versatility to tackle any task with accuracy and ease.
While not a common task, did you know that your Festool TS 75 is capable of cutting stainless steel up to 1/8" in thickness? Be sure to select the appropriate blade for the material you are cutting. Festool offers a wide selection of blades that are designed to cut specific materials. In this case, the 36-tooth metal-cutting blade (495384) was used.
The Festool TS plunge saw will change the way you work forever, period. Don't take our word for it, listen to the words of those who once were skeptics in this short, 2-minute YouTube video.
