TS55 REQ Recall


You should see tomorrow that the saw is being recalled due to the fact that the blade is not retracting correctly.
Supposedly all saws are affected

That seems to be a rumor. I can't get any confirmation from my sources.

I have been told of some cases about that, but it was quickly resolved.

Re: TS55 REQ Recall


Mine had the issue. It was the fastfix blade change gizmo was catching on a small indentation on the blade casing. would have been a very simple fix but I goto my dealer about 5x a week so was easy to just swap it out.

Re: TS55 REQ Recall


It is not a recall. They are inspecting inventory to see if there are any more out there with the issue, that way they can take care of it, instead of having to deal with shipping stuff back and forth.

I guess they are now requesting consumers that own the saw to call Festool. If there is a problem, yo they'll solve it.

Just got contacted by my dealer to say there's a recall. He forgot I swapped mine out already.

Re: TS55 REQ Recall


The mod over on FOG says discontinue use of the saw immediately and contact festal.
I was about to get one and now looks like will have to go with the old saw

Mine seems to retract just fine. Is it an obvious problem? I have only had it for a few weeks.

Yes, it is obvious. I got mine several months before release and noticed it hanging up some. With a bit of use it went away. It seems to be a clearance issue with the fast fix. I believe Festool knows what ones may have an issue (by build date) and are checking all saws in inventory plus checking with current owners of the saws.
