Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


So we are about to start going green... Lol.
I have convinced my dad to at least try festool. I guess he's not as quick to spend the money but I think I've got him understanding that it's worth it.

We are going to start out with a track saw and an extractor hopefully. I'm thinking of getting the 55 instead of the 75. We have never had a TS before so I'm not sure what things we will use it on other than sheet goods, cutting down doors, and from the sounds of it a crap load of other stuff once we have it. Lol.

Any reason to go 75 instead of 55? Also which size extractor would you start with? I'm thinking either 26 or midi.

Used it today against the Milwaukee and Hilti. Power wise i would say the Hilti won.. For weight and balance and the trigger control the Festool wins

def start with the 55 the vac is personal choice. they are all the same power and just size that different. the 36 is pretty big. how much room do you have to store it is the biggest factor.
