The new Festool TS 55 REQ is one of the most advanced plunge cut saws and guide rail systems arriving on the market. A host of new features will make it incredibly easy and efficient to use. In short, any professional who has used it will tell you that it is simply the best track saw on the market. Here are some of the latest improvements seen in the TS 55 REQ by Festool.

  • Micro-Adjustable Depth Control – Only cut as deep as you need and save set-up time with the easy-to-read depth scale.
  • Splinterguard System – Avoid tearout on both sides of the blade with this revolutionary addition around the saw blade.
  • Improved Flush Cutting – The offset on the flat housing is just over an inch so you can make straight cut perfectly parallel to any others.
  • Extended Bevel Range – The guide and detent system now runs from -1° to 47° for adding flexibility and greater precision.
  • Improved Dust Control – A new and improved dust channel design allows for better removal and allows you to keep the saw in the work area with only minimal clean-up involved.

The TS 55 REQ is coming on the market on May 1st, so mark that date if you need a new track saw in your home or workshop.  Be sure to tell us how you enjoy the saw on our Facebook page!
