Ts 55 ?


I'm thinking about picking one up this week. I'm very excited. I was just wondering if any lefties have owned it, and do you see any drawbacks with it? I'm sure its fine, but just curious.

i use mine with both hands depending on how it ends up orientated. no problems. regardless i always try to keep a slight sideways pressure away from the track assuming it will help somehow.

I use mine with my left hand about 75%. If im cutting down a door slab or a piece of ply its easier to stand on the waste side of the cut with the rail and saw on your left. If im cutting on my mft3 or on the ground I'll cut with my right. Its also gets put in the systainer with your left

I'm a lefty and use our TS75 with either hand, its just a really easy saw to use and control with one hand.
