Manufacturer Description

What's in the Box Festool TS 55 EQ Plunge Cut Circular Saw, 55-inch (1,400-millimeter) guide rail, 48-tooth carbide blade, limit stop, Plug-it power cord, splinterguard, and Systainer storage caabinet

Light, accurate, and easy to handle, the Festool TS 55 EQ Plunge Cut Circular Saw's portable design offers the same precision you'd expect from a traditional panel saw. Ideal for flooring and precision cut outs, it features a dependable, triple motor bearing, constant speed monitoring, and a retractable spring-loaded riving knife for smooth, controlled operation. Plus, FastFix blade changes save time and keep your work flow smooth.

Quick, Controlled Plunge-Cutting Action
Able to handle the same cuts as table saws, sliding miter saws, radial arm saws, and panel saws, the Festool TS 55 EQ is ideal for a broad range of applications. Its plunge action ensures precision when working with a variety of wood surfaces, including flooring.

The saw is designed to allow cut placement anywhere on the cut line for straight cuts and cut outs with clean edges. And for improved accuracy and reduced waste, the TS 55 EQ makes each cut right on the edge of the scribe line, even on bevel cuts.

The TS 55 EQ offers a maximum cutting depth of 2-1/8 inches (55 millimeters) when used without a guide rail, and it gives you 1-15/16 inch of cutting capacity when used with a guide rail. Plus, it makes depth adjustment simple by allowing you to expose only the part of the blade necessary for a given cut.

Clean Finishes with Guide Rail and Splinterguard
Built to work with Festool guide rails, the TS 55 EQ makes it easy to set up for perfectly straight cuts. Guide rail guidance also allows you to use limit stops to cut identical pieces. The saw comes with a versatile 55-inch guide rail.

In addition, an integral guide-rail splinterguard and a second, detachable off-cut side splinterguard work to eliminate tear out on both sides of the saw's cut line. A cut line that's clean and splinter-free on both sides of the blade means you only need to make one pass with the saw, which saves you time. It also means you waste less material, which saves you money.

Spring-Loaded Riving Knife Reduces Kickback
The TS 55 EQ features a spring-loaded riving knife (splitter) that retracts into the housing during plunge cuts. The riving knife keeps the cut kerf open, so the material you are working with won't pinch the saw blade. This reduces the chance of kickback, making the saw safer and ensuring complete control over each cut.

FastFix Blade Changing System Saves Time
When it's time to switch out the blade on your TS 55 EQ, the FastFix system makes the change fast, easy, and intuitive. When this system is engaged, the saw's power switch and arbor are locked simultaneously, so you don't have to worry about accidental start-ups. In addition, the saw is locked into a position that facilitates easy arbor bolt removal, so you can get at the blade quickly.

Robust Design Includes MMC Electronics and Triple Motor Bearing
Different applications place different demands on your tools, and the TS 55 EQ offers variable speed control from 2,000 to 5,200 rpm for equally good results when working with a variety of materials. With its constant speed monitoring, the saw is able to maintain consistent blade speeds under heavy loads, which produces clean, consistent results. And its electronic system includes thermal and current protection, extending the life of the saw.

This saw's robust construction with a triple motor bearing also delivers increased stability, smooth performance, and reduced noise levels--all of which combine to help reduce user fatigue.

In addition, this plunge-cut saw features a Plug-It power cord. This interchangeable cord design allows you to quickly switch between Festool tools without changing your entire setup.

Integrated Dust Control Improves Work Environment
The dependable TS 55 EQ also offers a swiveling dust port that directs dust away from you and your work surface, improving safety and minimizing cleanup time on the job site. This integrated port accepts multiple hose sizes, and it can be used with a Festool CT dust extractor.

The Festool TS 55 EQ Plunge Cut Circular Saw is backed by a three-year limited warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee.

When used with Festool guide rails, you can achieve perfectly straight and splinter-free cuts.

Blade changes are easier and safer using the FastFix system which locks switch and arbor simultaneously for easy arbor bolt removal. MMC electronics provide soft start, variable speed, constant speed under load, and current and thermal overlad protection.
