Ts 55 REQ


For Sale, will not come with the 55 track. It will come with the original blade freshly sharpened by Leitz.
The bottom isn't scratched up. I babied this thing. Make an offer. You pay shipping

That systainer gas never been used, I had the saw in a sys 5 the whole time to fit my hose.

I really don't want to take less than 400 for it.

So I guess you called timberwolftools . The saw looks in perfect condition. If I didn't just buy TS 55 REQ couple months back I would buy it .

I think that is a tad too high. I bought a used one here a few years ago with two blades and they systainer for a bit less than that.

Once you buy a track you might as well buy the kit new and get the full 3 year warranty...

Sounds like you're better off selling on eBay to a HO who would pay the $400. All these guys are trying to talk you down...

Another option is to post it for sale on FOG in the classified section.

I don't care if I don't sell it. It's not really worth my time to package it.

Re: Ts 55 REQ


I sold my ts55 for the same as I paid for it. There were 2 prices increased in the time I owned it so used were as much. You have to keep it for at least a couple of years if you want your money back. You shouldn't have a problem getting 80% of what you paid after 2 years. The other thing now is they are way more popular than they were 3 years ago so there's way more for sale. I remember when eBay only had about 8 pages of festool stuff. But now there's 100-200pages so there's many more for sale too which can bring cost down.

I would throw in the track but I'm too lazy to pack it up and ship it. By the time I get the packaging chit, package it up take it to ups, I've burned up 3 hours now the damn thing just went down another 180 bucks for my time.

So don't be suprised when someone is "too lazy" to give you an extra hundred bucks...

I talked to timberwolf, he said not one Mafell has been returned because it was made wrong.

I heard their service sucks balls here in the US. Not sure how true that is but having only one dealer for the whole US got to cause some problems. Not that festool done good on my vac repair lol

From what I've experienced it can't be any worse than Festool service. They get it right because they do it twice.
