Product Overview

Details

A whole new standard for portable circular saws.
The TS 55 REQ is not just a standard circular saw. With its accuracy and versatility, a better comparison would be to the most advanced table saws, miter saws or panel saws available. Add in its incredible portability and unbelievable ease of use, and you have a precision-cutting solution like no other. With micro-adjustable depth controls and flat housing for flush-cutting against walls or adjacent surfaces, the TS 55 REQ is Festool's most advanced plunge cut saw ever.
Features:
  • Easy-to-read dual-depth scale indicates depth settings for cuts on or off the guide rail (Self-adhering Imperial scale included)
  • Integrated micro-adjustable depth control knob enables precise cutting action and depth
  • Streamlined splinter guard eliminates tearout on both sides of blade for smooth cuts on any material
  • Flat housing offset to 1/1-15/16 in. makes perfectly parallel straight cuts to any edge for increased versatility
  • Greater beveling range of -1 degrees to 47 degree with simple detent-override and positive stops at 0 and 45 degrees
  • Redesigned riving knife emerges before the blade for easier position in existing cut lines
  • MMC electronics ensure constant speed under load to improve cut quality and performance while protecting from thermal and current overload
  • Improved dust channel design further enhances dust extraction efficiency for a cleaner work environment

  • TS 55 REQ Plunge Cut Circular Saw - 561556
  • SYS-4 T-Loc Systainer

        Comments about TS 55 REQ Plunge Cut Circular Saw:

        I was skeptical that the track would stay in place. I was wrong. Even with sawdust on it the track stayed put. Next purchase is a dust extractor and a guide rail deflector. I should have purchased this saw years ago. I could have saved myself a ton of aggravation. Everything fits in the case and stays protected. I wish they made a hard shell case for the tracks.

                Comments about TS 55 REQ Plunge Cut Circular Saw:

                I owned a small table saw prior to purchasing and didn't enjoy using it for long rip cuts. I do not have the option to build an outfeed table for support and safety so it was a juggling act to set up prior to making rip cuts. I did some extensive research and price comparisons and concluded that Festool TS 55 REQ was the best bet for me. Don't get me wrong, the price was the one factor that kept me from buying but after researching other options and taking into consideration my available space and the price of a good table saw; the FESTOOL TS55 was the one for me. I already made a small sitting bench and some shelving using the TS55 and didn't dread using the tool at all. Looking forward to my next projects from my list.

                    Q:

                    With respect to trimming close to an object. I asked the same question of Dewalt. I often have to trim new wood floors due to expansion in one or all directions and need to take off small amounts from time to time. ? - How close to a wall can this saw cut- 1/4" - 3/8" ? Looking at Festool FESNP26561556 Kit.

                      It's a German product, so clearly there's a 240-volt version available in Europe.

                  Warranty

                  Festool Warranty

                  Festool offers a 3-year warranty, one of the longest in the industry. This warranty is valid on the pre-condition that the tool is used and operated in compliance with the Festool operating instructions. Festool warrants that the specified tool will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a term of 3 years from the date of purchase.

                  Conditions of 1 + 2 warranty

                  You are entitled to a free extended warranty (1 year + 2 years = 3 years) for your Festool power tool. Festool is responsible for all shipping costs during the first year of the warranty. During the second and third year of the warranty the customer is responsible for shipping the tool to Festool. Festool will pay for return shipping to the customer using UPS Ground Service. All warranty service is valid 3 years from the date of original purchase on your receipt or invoice.

                  Festool makes no other warranty, express or implied, for Festool portable power tools. No agent, representative, distributor, dealer, or employee of Festool has the authority to increase or otherwise change the obligations or limitations of this warranty. The obligations of Festool in its sole discretion under this warranty shall be limited to the repair or replacement of any Festool portable power tool that is found to be defective as packaged with the User Manual.

                  Excluded from the coverage under this warranty are: normal wear and tear; damages caused by misuse, abuse, or neglect; damage caused by anything other than defects in material and workmanship. This warranty does not apply to accessory items such as circular saw blades, drill bits, router bits, jigsaw blades, sanding belts, and grinding wheels. Also excluded are "wearing parts," such as carbon brushes, lamellas of air tools, rubber collars and seals, sanding discs and pads, and batteries.

In no event shall Festool be liable for any consequential or incidental damages for breach of this or any other warranty, express or implied whatsoever. All warranties implied by state law, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are hereby limited to the duration of three years.

                  Some states in the U.S. do not allow the limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. With the exception of any warranties implied by state or province law as hereby limited, the foregoing express limited warranty is exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, guarantees, agreements, and similar obligations of Festool.

                  This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state in the U.S.
