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.

    It really amazing to see how far track saws have come along and specially this one from festool. The ability to change speeds for different materials clearer cuts and less wear on the motor. The biggest thing beyond that it is a great tool is there is no cords to get in the way when cutting or trip on. Also for me where I live I don’t have a lot room so cutting sheetgoods would be a lot easier

    Great article. I have had my eyes on a track saw since I first saw you and Murray over at Kruger demo them. They make a night and day difference as far as speed and cut quality. Like you, I always thought Festool was out of my league. Well, it turns out, for the time being, it’s still out of my league being I do plumbing and heating, not carpentry for a living. With that said, I do a ton of projects in my spare time and will be building a house in the next two years, so I will put the TSC55 to good use. Please sign me up for the #toolpig10k giveaway!

    What a wonderful saw! I’ve been looking at one of these. But the cost for a father of five makes it a bit difficult! I generally use a strip of mdf/plywood or my 78” level and and score my material before using my skill saw. Awesome tool now that they are cordless makes it ideal for comercial jobs that I’m usually on.

    Festool it’s truly a front runner not only with corded tools but now with cordless. The TSC55 is going to make it easier to cut in occupied spaces due to its great dust collection bag, not having to have run hoses to other dust collectors will be a major help. It’s going to make accessibility so much easier than having to carry around the standard corded table saw. I am definitely going to be adding this to my Christmas list this year.
    Thank you for the awesome review

    As a young carpenter without much capitol to spend on high end tools, I have still tried to justify buying this track saw. I was lucky enough to run one on a jobsite recently and I couldn’t be more impressed. Being 21, I have to earn my respect as a experience carpenter through my quality of work. Owning the TSC55 REB would change the game for me. I can confidently cut high end cabinet paneling without worry. Also, by owning this tool I could influence fellow coworkers to step up their own quality of work by purchasing one. By creating a high standard, I can point the company in a great direction. Thank you for your consideration. Aside from this tool, I would like to say thank you for the great content you post. Keeps me on my toes for the upcoming tech in the construction industry.

    I literally can’t afford a track saw, but the set up would be fantastic for my job in new home construction. I jump from house to house all day everyday, doing drywall work, back framing, trim work, replacing damaged floor boards and installing subfloor for tile. Sometimes I have to cut down a door or put in a filler strip for cabinets.
    The compact nature and accuracy of a track would improve my speed and quality of work. I have been eyeing a track saw for ages and this tool would increase my value as an employee.

    Best of luck to everybody entered.

    First seeing the track saw (of any brand) I wasn’t sold on it. After fighting with sheet goods in my garage I’m starting to see its role. I have never used festool anything and am hesitant to invest simply because of price.

    Everything I keep reading talks about how good Festool stuff is. For the price I would certainly hope so. I’ve never tried anything but seen a few demos. I have to admit that their systems sure seem to work pretty well!
    Really like the flexibility of 18v or 36v option when you’re charging batteries!

    Well. Every carpenter should have one of these saws and I guarantee everyone on here deserves this saw. I have only used a corded version of this saw that I borrowed from a fellow carpenter and that was when I fell in love. I remember being so nervous to use it the first time that I was shaking a little because I’d never used a tool that was that expensive. Now it is on my wish list. I currently use a small cordless makita circular saw with a track system that I made. It works pretty good for how crude it is. But it has no dust collection and I have a huge mess to clean up after every cut. Oh well. It works good. But this tsc 55 is the bee’s knees. And I would be so pumped on some proper dust collection!

    I’ve heard some crazy things about Festool battery powered tools. Apparently because the corded tools are engineered in Germany and run on different voltage than we do in the states, the motors don’t run as efficiently as they’re supposed to. But since a battery is a battery whether here or in Germany, the motors are more efficient since they can be tuned with a constant source of power. Could be the opinion of the crazy guy I met at my local tool store but it sounds pretty good.

    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!!!

    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.

    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!

    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

    • toolpig 11/08/2017 at 7:44 AM - Reply

      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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I love this saw. Had the opportunity of using one last week and a 4 hr job took about 45 minutes. Would save me sooo much time squaring and milling.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
