Festool

Festool TSC55REB cordless tracksaw 

Available at ACME Tools

     I used to say,”I can’t afford a track saw.” After buying one, I say ,”I can’t afford not to have a track saw.” Owning a good track saw can literally change your whole work experience for the better if you do any type of woodworking, carpentry, cabinet installation or even drywall. That’s right! High end drywall contractors are using track saws!

I still remember that first moment when I first used one years ago. It wasn’t even a Festool. It wasn’t a very good one but it was good enough that I realized that I needed a track saw in my life. I was building some roll around cabinets for a large commercial project. That track saw was rough, loud, crude and so so dusty! The track side of the cut was pretty decent but the waste side was just as splintered up as a regular saw would produce. Still it made an impression on me.

I began researching track saws. I knew I wouldn’t buy that same saw. It was not a nice user experience even though it did the job. I was trying to avoid Festool because I thought it was too expensive. In the US there aren’t very many choices. There is basically Festool, Mafell, DeWalt and Makita. On the lower end you have a few more but I am never interested in the low end when buying tools.

Schutte lumber in Kansas City had a Festool event one Saturday and I decided to just go try one out. Words cannot describe the feelings I had that day! That day changed everything for me! Once I used the Festool TS55 REQ connected to a CT dust extractor, I was hooked! I didn’t need to keep looking! The cuts were perfect, both the track side of the cut and the waste side were smooth and tear out free thanks to the splinter guards on both sides of the cut. The dust collection was almost 100%. I bought both on the spot! I also bought a sander and an MFT work table and some accessories. Never before had I experienced dust free woodworking. Every time I used the saw or sander, I just couldn’t help but smile!

Last year when I saw the release of the new TSC55REB I knew I had to buy one. I already had the rails so it was easier to pay for it. It is available in many different configurations from full kit with batteries, charger and a rail all the way down to a bare tool . I love a cordless jobsite. I really couldn’t wait to try one out! I thought it would be a good companion for my corded saw. I was mistaken. It was a full on 110% replacement for my corded saw! I couldn’t believe it! It could do everything the corded saw could but with more torque! Less bogging on those heavy hardwood rips. Best of all…no cord or hose to trip on! I have seen plenty of tools knocked off of a work bench from someone tripping on a cord.

Many people have asked me ,”What is the point of a cordless saw if you have to have it hooked to a dust extractor? ” I feel that it is a very good question. I like to think of it as a more versatile tool. When connected to an extractor it behaves exactly like a corded saw but with more power. The only thing that it doesn’t do is trigger the extractor to turn on. You have to manually turn it on. Most of the time though, I skip the hose and use it without.


This brings us to one of the most outstanding features about the tsc55: The superior dust collection with the included dust bag. It is no ordinary throw it in the corner useless dust bag. It is far and away the best passive dust collection system I have ever used on any tool. It catches so much dust that you actually have to empty it often. It even does a near perfect job of catching all of your MDF dust without an extractor.
Festool engineers really outdid themselves when designing this cordless saw. It is nearly identical to the corded version in many ways. The areas you will find differences are in the motor case area. The motor housing is molded to accept one or two 18v batteries. There are 2 sets of variable LED battery level indicators on the saw body. They are easily seen any time you are starting a cut. They make it very easy to monitor available run time. This is a nice feature because you may not want to start a critical cut when they are nearly depleted.


I really appreciate that Festool engineered the saw to run on 2 batteries at 36v or one battery at 18v. This gives us much more flexibility. I know of no other dual battery tool that gives this option. Although at 18 volts the saw runs a bit slower, you can keep on working with one spare while they both charge up. The difference in speed is hardly noticeable to me since I rarely run the saw on full speed anyway.

Just like all Festool track saws the TSC55 has a variable speed dial. This allows you to adjust the blade speed to match your material. Wood, mdf, plastic, laminates and non ferrous metals require different blade speeds. The TSC uses a brushless EC-TEC motor with MMC electronic motor controls. They allow the saw to maintain correct speed for the job with a wide variety of blades, materials and conditions.
Before cutting with any new track, you will first need to make an initial reference cut of the splinter guard. It is installed on the aluminum rail slightly wide from the factory. The blade cuts completely through and determines the final width of the splinter guard. With any cut on any circular saw, you want to set your depth before cutting.

To make a cut with a track, you simply have to mark your cut and place the splinter guard on the marks on the side you wish to keep. It is not necessary to mark the whole cut line. I normally only mark the beginning and the end. The tracks are very straight and since the blade follows exactly the edge of the splinter guard, the cut is always straight.

The splinter guards and riving  knife make for very safe and accurate cuts
There are many blade choices from Festool. I have only used the ones for wood products. I Like the 24 tooth for general purpose use. It is a little faster than the factory 48 tooth blade and still leaves a very clean cut. The edge is as glue ready as I have ever seen with a circular saw. For even faster rips there is a 12 tooth Panther blade. On rips, I have noticed very little reduction in cut quality with it. I have heard from quite a few users that the panther is their main blade. For crosscuts in veneer plywood or melamine, I definitely recommend the factory 48 tooth blade.

I like this cordless saw so much after using it a year that I completely stopped using the corded version and sold it. It has become my all time favorite power tool. It really simplifies a major portion of my work. I can say with confidence that anyone considering a tracksaw should seriously consider the 18-36v Festool TSC55REB. It does everything a corded track saw does and more. It is very easy to schedule a demo at your local dealer.

    Amazing stuff, there have definitely been a few times I’ve been needing this saw and dreamt about it. Great article!

    This thing would come in handy when the ts75 is too big (most of the time)

  3. Trevor Cavanaugh

    The festoon Tsc55reb is gonna be even more of a game changer, you can already tell that the surrounding industry is modeling their tracksaws around festool design, and there’s definitely a reason for that. The dust collection is another point recently prioritized by the industry, when festool has been crushing it for years/generations of tools. When it comes to clean, straight, and square cuts the festool tracksaw lineup is so versatile and now going cordless, there’s truly a model for every craftsman. Great feedback toolpig!!!

    I have the corded version and it Rocks. I really want to try the cordless.

  6. Stephen Kane

    Awesome Input! I have used the corded version of this saw before, and it is great. Very simple to use, but with all the features necessary. Festool definitely leads the industry in dust extraction. The only annoying part about dust extraction is having both a hose and power cord following your cuts, especially with the track saw. Glad to hear the TSC55REB is just as powerful as the corded version and can pick up enough dust. You’re absolutely right in saying that most of my other dust bags are “thrown in the corner”. This tool is definitely now on my never ending tool wish list.

    Really awesome product, it’s pretty clear where other companies are getting inspiration from for their track saws. I personally don’t have enough room for a table saw so the TSC55REB would be amazing!

    My boss loves festool and has let me use his in shop. Love to get my own but can’t afford right now. Will definitely be looking to purchase down the line and what better way to start off with a free track Saw 😉
    Great review and only has me wanting one even more now! Love to convince my boss to go cordless job site too!

    From this review and all other reviews I have seen this seems like the best track saw available. It would be a welcome addition to my shop.

  11. James Smetaniuk

    Love the reviews as always. I am interested to know how the new Makita cordless stacks up against it and if you would still pick the Festool despite the price difference. @jamsme

  12. Impressive track saw! There seems to slit of accessories for this model than my usually yellow brand

  13. Been needing a trackSaw for some time now. It’d make getting boards straight and square so much easier.
    @hardeedesign

  14. Can’t afford nice tsc55.
    I’ve been trying to figure my circular saw to make parallel, to cut long edge tables, but it just won’t cut straight. Tried making the base, but it cannot cut for my 2″thick woods after addon base.
    Also I tried kreg, other curcular track guides, but never straight, angel off, saw marks, never did clean job. I’ve always wanted to use tsc55 or corded one, but just cannot afford it. Cannot find used in canada as well. Never seen yet. This would solve all my issue on tables and benches and slab works, and night time headaches!
    @edgewoodwork

  15. Oops I forgot to tag my Instagram account @jcarpentrypei

  16. Amazing review . I’m curious how the track stays in place? Do u clamp either end ? Or does it have a non slip rubber backing of some sort ? I’ve had allergies to tree pollen my whole life and they have developed into being allergic to most common sawdust . That being said , the dust collection of this saw would be the biggest benefit for me personally ! Look forward to reading more reviews

    • There is a soft plastic edge splinter guard and 2 grippy foam strips the whole length of the rail. You almost never need to clamp it down. There are grooves underneath the rail to use with special clamps if you really need them for a critical cut.

    I’m so in love with this saw. Love your right ups. Thanks for keeping up with it!!!

    There have been drooling over owning a Festtool tracksaw but like you were the cost has been prohibitive. I saw that though having completed many jobs where a good track would have made the job so much easier and cleaner. Thanks for the great review!

  23. Cassie Arter

    I have a small garage I turned into a shop and table saws intimidate me. This would kill 2 birds with 1 stone for me! This would really help our small business.

  24. Mindy Roosendahl

    My husband would love this, and he totally deserves it!

    @MrsRoosendahl

  25. Love the review and this saw. This would really step up my productivity and quality of workmanship. I have used the kreg track system but this is another level. The fact it’s cordless too is awesome!

    @kta_remodeling.

  26. Colt

    Used one of these at Festool showing at a local store one time and fell in love! I have no sob story I just really want one of these! Insta- @coltyancey

  27. This saw is amazing!!! I do custom wood floors and one of the most time consuming things in my my job is setting up jigs and forms to cut borders around the rooms I am installing. They have to be perfect. I usually use lumber stock and fasten it to the floor so it will not move to get my exact cut for the border. Then after I have made my cuts I have to take up the forms. With the track saw my time would be cut way more than in half. Plus with the festool tracksaw with its chip guard my cuts would be cleaner taking less time for me to clean up the edges. And it being cordless will free me up from long extension cords dragging behind me and for jobsite with no power or limited outlets this would perfect.

  28. Nice looking saw but I think I’ll try the makita

  29. Zachary Romyn

    Tried the makita at a trade show but this would really help me when I need to cut melamine shelves on site.

  30. Another good, detailed review -thanks toolpig! I’m currently in the midst of weighing up my options, so I can get my first tracksaw… all this info is very helpful and that looks like one of the best!

    Just started using a Festool corded tracksaw a month ago at work. Don’t know how I made it without one. Much better than a table saw for handling sheet goods.
    I need need need one of these . Cordless is the future. Insta Carp3nter25.
    Ps I’m in Kansas City you won’t have to ship far

  33. Todd

    This is pure fantasy for me. I am on disability for what I can only explain to others as tendonitis throughout my body. if it weren’t for my cordless tools I wouldn’t be doing anything and unfortunately when you are on disability you can’t afford replacement batteries and you have to be able to maintain your home without professionals because you just don’t have the money for them.

    The one thing that seems incredible to me is that you said you can get rid of your corded saw. I like my cordless tools but they aren’t anywhere near as powerrful as my corded tools. If that’s true than that is a real advancement.

    I have heard before about their superior dust collection from Marc at the WoodWhisperer. I still have trouble comprehending why a track saw is so much better than a straight edge clamp and my cordless circular saw. Maybe someday I’ll see one in action.

  34. Daniel

    Sweet review. Hope to own this saw one day.

I need this saw because someone recently broke into my shop and stole my makita cordless circular saw and drills (probably to sell for drugs, sadly) and I have since been with out the ability to cut down large sheet goods, or even trim projects that are either built or are larger than my miter saw.

    Great article…super thorough. I’ve been dreaming about owning this saw for a while but I haven’t been able to justify the purchase yet. I got an opportunity to use the first generation cordless tracksaw they put out on an old hotel jobsite I was on and have had a major love for the machine since.

    I really enjoy their inclusion of the riving knife as well…which is one of the major reasons I don’t want to opt for the Makita track.

  51. I am a self employed carpenter and when I’m on my own jobs I’m forced to use a kreg rip guide to break down sheet goods. When doing built ins with a fellow finish carpenter I suggested again that he purchase a track saw he reluctantly bought the makita 36v after using one on a job. Now he loves it more than he thought he would. Not only would it make me function at a higher level it would also improve efficiency greatly for me. Thank you for your consideration.

  52. Great article. I own the corded version and have been hesitant to pull the trigger on the cordless. Your article reads like my own life. I have a Festool drill, so I already have the batteries. So…

    I recently mostly impart to posts like these, started investing in festool. I was skeptical at first, but when I started uses them I quickly realized what the hype was all about. They are very high quality. I chose the dewalt track saw over the festool before I was aware how great festool was, which I regret now. This cordless version would be even better because sometimes cords and hoses can catch on the track. Festool has it figured out. Thanks for the read toolpig.

  100. I’m seriously contemplating a track saw purchase in the near future, the fact that it can run on one or two batteries is a great benefit. The Makita and Flexvolt track saws look nice but I lean towards the Festool even though it costs more. The quality of cut will probably save me more time in the long run and make it worth the initial higher cost.

    I just love the way they put so much thought into these tools. They really are made for professionals. They make it easier to get a quality result in a reasonable amount of time. I’m super excited to try out the cordless tracksaw one day. I love the idea of batteries and a good dust bag. It really makes working on site that much easier.

    I would definitely be able to finish up some fundraiser projects. My current circular saw is looking a bit rough.

  103. I had the old ts55, it was a great tool. I didn’t use it much because we bought it for one purpose and that changed. So I sold it. Now I am doing much more work where I would use this and I would love to have this one. @littlesaplingtoys_shop on insta.

    Another well written article. I think this is the first in-depth review (I have read) with no noted negative features. Thank you for putting the time and effort into this. The dust collection is really compelling!

    Similar to you, I use the corded track saw for onsite cabinet making and never thought a cordless version would come close, however after reading your thoughts I think it might be time to explore the cordless option.

    This would sure help just starting my business. I love the flexibility of the cordless

    I’ve been in the market for this track saw for a while and have been saving to add to my collection of quality tools. After making my first festool purchase I was mad at myself for not making the investment sooner. My instagram info is @walkawoodco

    Is Christmas really going to come early? Man I would love to get my hands on one of these.

    I never thought using a track saw for drywall would be an option but with the dust bag you spoke of or a dust extraction kit I could see that being extremely efficient. It’s also pretty great you can use just one battery if needed. It might be time to invest!

    Having a track saw would be so beneficial in my shop. These festool are amazing!!!

    Unreal! Being an apprentice ive been told time and time again to stick to corded power tools, all battery operated expecting drills, are just toys! You’ve completely swayed me in this case, as the cordless track saw is a beast ! Great review

    Cheers

    Took me awhile to justify the cost of the ts55, until I bought. It’s paid for itself 10 times over. The engineering and quality make it hard if not impossible to improve on.

    I’ve been looking to buy one and this review was very helpful I’ve already been 100% committed to getting festool products. Every time I’m in need of a new quality tool they are the first company that come to mind. I only own a couple tools from festool but I’m looking to add some more to my collection. After using them I can’t belive I didn’t spend the money sooner!

    This is such an awesome saw! I had the privelage to try my neighbors tracksaw and it’s a great tool.

    Quality track saw this one, have gone out on my own and would make great addition.

  119. I’ve been looking for a good track saw. I was thinking Makita, but this thing looks awesome.

    @mas_lawns

    Looks awesome! Never tried a tracksaw… might as well start with the best !

    I am quite literally drooling over this beast of a saw. So many applications in mind, waterfall slab tables near the top. Love the saw love the review. Wish I could afford one, but alas I am only a poor student. Maybe someday! Thanks guys!

    I’m in the spot you were before you bought. It’s a matter of “can’t afford” so it seems so out of reach. Having a really small shop, I can only imagine the versatility of what track saws can offer. With all it can do, you have me thinking of selling tools that this could replace to get one…

    @alechumphrey

  123. matthew

    would be a great fit in my shop, i would have plenty of need for this. being able to rip plywood at home would a great benefit, versus getting poorly cut product at the store.

    @wornstandard

  124. Chris Roosendahl

    This would be great for breaking down sheets of plywood before bringing them into the garage and making them easier to handle. Ive always loved the concept and the ability to get a straight clean cut. Plus its portable. For now ill have to keep using the table saw or fab up a diy version with a worm drive.👍🏻👍🏻

  125. CJ olson

    Excellent saw by an excellent company, not having a jointer(any more) this saw would enable me to dimension rough lumber.

  127. This would be an absolute amazing addition to #mybiglittleshop With such limited space, a track saw would be a great help.

    @joecarroll48

  129. @williampatrickcustoms here and ty for the review and a chance to win one. Thanks to Festool as well. Been wanting one but havnt pulled the trigger. This review is such a nice resource to have. Thank you.

  130. Josh Grantham

    I’ve never had a tracksaw and have really considered picking one up. This has been super helpful! Either way, will be picking up one soon!

    @granthamwoodworks

  131. Austin werrmann

    I have been loving mine for the last month. Would’ve never gotten the cordless if it weren’t for you and keifer thanks. Now just need to get a spare set of batteries. So glad that festool batteries are actually affordable

  132. Todd K

    I am almost definitely getting the corded version, the TS55EQ! Great review!

  133. This saw looks and sounds incredible. I just don’t know if I can justify the money since I’m just a hobbyist.

  134. @shamrockremodeling

    What a great looking saw. Can be used in so many different applications. Do they have different size tracks for it? Also looks very user friendly. Doesn’t look to heavy to maneuver. Festool at its finest.

  135. Bremon

    Paul…you’re killing me. After my initial look at Festool I thought I would exclusively buy corded tools to avoid another battery platform. You’re making a compelling argument for cordless!
