The all-new Festool TS 55 REQ is not your standard circular saw. With its accuracy and versatility, it should be compared to the most advanced table saws, miter saws, or panel saws available. Incredible portability and unbelievable ease of use deliver precision cutting like nothing else — equally at home in high-end cabinet shops as in the most challenging onsite remodel. Packed with all the time-saving features you’ve come to expect from a Festool TS Saw, the new TS 55 REQ features a flat housing for flush-cutting against walls or adjacent surfaces, micro-adjustable depth controls, plus a host of other time-saving enhancements.
Guide Rail Precision
With the FS Guide Rail System, you’ll get laser-straight, splinter-free cuts in seconds. Simply lay the Guide Rail between two points, and you have your cut line. It’s really that easy.
Splinterguards on both sides of the blade ensure that you’ll make zero-tearout cuts in virtually any material, improving your quality of work while significantly reducing material waste.
Take the tool to the work
Replace large stationary equipment with an incredibly precise, handheld unit. You’ll save your back, while getting more out of your expensive materials.
Here's what we changed with the new TS 55 REQ plunge cut saw over the previous model, the TS 55 EQ.
Easy-to-read, dual-depth scale - Large, readable scale indicates depth setting, for cuts on or off the guide rail. Also includes a self-adhering Imperial scale.
Micro-adjustable depth control - Integrated micro-adjust knob enables precise depth adjustment, so you cut only what's intended.
More protection from splintering - Streamlined Splinterguard is always there when you need it, eliminating tearout on both sides of the blade.
Flat housing for flush-cutting - With a flat housing offset to 1/1-15/16", you'll make straight cuts perfectly parallel to any edge, further increasing your range of applications with the TS 55 REQ.
Pick up where you left off - Redesigned riving knife emerges before the saw blade for easier positioning in existing cuts lines.
Greater bevel range - Simple detent-override function extends angle cutting to -1° to 47° with positive stops at 0° and 45°.
Better dust control - Improved dust channel design further enhances extraction efficiency, so you can work right in the customer's space, with less clean-up.
