For some reason everytime I write "haven't" auto correct wants to write "hedgehog" or I write "you" it wants to put in "toy", so if you see that in my posts you'll now know.

If I ever need to do a bevel cut I will use the Mafell track. From what I understand that's the only thing that's not quite compatible with the mt55cc.

How long before you get the new saw shipped to your door .

Re: Ts 55 REQ


There's another guy on here with that same saw. Can't remember his name though but I think he is in the UK. He likes it more than the ts55 power wise. If its anything like my ts75 for power you won't have an issue cutting anything you would be cutting.

Very cool Mike! It will be interesting to hear your thoughts on the differences between them.

I hope so, I just spent a lot of money.

I could've just settled with another Makita, but the quality of that saw is much better.

I wonder what the extra 1000 rpm's will do for me on that mt55cc

I still have it, it's with my other crew. I sold the ts55 because I want the power of the Mafell mt55cc. Like I was saying the Makita saw has the extra power that the ts55 lacks, but I really like the quality of that Mafell.

I've been doing a lot of reading on mafell, and I'm glad I didn't jump too far in on the festool band wagon. I really want to get my hands on the push pull saw,

Don't get me wrong, I had a choice to keep one of the saws either the festool Ts55 or the Makita. I chose the Makita.

I think you made a good call..but it had to help to know you would get top dollar for the Festool. You wouldn't have gotten that much for your Makits.

True, but I only paid just over 300 bucks for the Makita. I paid over 600 for the ts55

I know the Makita was cheaper. I keep thinking Bosch will bring theirs over here and I will redeem some points just to try it out. Mafell makes the Bosch one. It has the same 1400 watt motor. Not sure about the scoring feature.

Interested to see what you think of the mafell. I'm happy with my makita, dislike the lack of a riving knife.

Had it kick out of the kerf and take a nibble out of my track first day.
