    I just seen a video of it in use . Crazy how the track folds up into circle then in a systainer . Video is from a UK tool store . The kss300 and kss400 I believe run on that track . I’ve never seen anything like it before.

    Always willing to learn .

    Yep…these tools are in a different class for sure. I think that there are three of us on BTP that have jumped into the Mafell swimming pool…

    Oh…and the KSS300 is the exact same saw with the added benefit of a cross-cut track that allows perfect 90 degree and angled cuts on a cross-cut track. It too all fits in a Systainer.

    I think it gets some mixed reviews. I know it does have a learning curve to it to understand that it doesn’t lie perfectly flat and that it’s not going to replace the traditional rail.

    It’s good for flooring and roofs etc.

    Looks like a sleek system for sure, after a few bad employee days and a few kinks wonder how it will be then.

    AHHH! Dammit Mike…who peed in the pool again?

    That track looks awesome! Does it work with the 55 you have Brad or Mike?

    You would have to call Timberwolf to get a price. I don’t think it can get kinked or at least not very easily. I have heard that you have to either let the saw come to a stop before removing it or lift it off and away from the rail less you risk cutting into it. I think it is a slick system.

    Here is a good video of this saw in action:

    Thanks for sharing the video . I see that the track really don’t lay flat to surface. @MrToolJunkie

    On the one that rolls I think it is flexible. It is supposed to grip on the bottom. I do not have one personally, just the F-Style rails that are very rigid. But for a portable site solution I think it would be great.

    I think that’s the only selling feature is that it’s portable . No long rails to store .

    Brad, have you compared the Festool TS55REQ to your 55 Mafell? Just curious about the power and how smooth it is.

    Pretty cool little system, especially for storage. I wonder though that if it was stored too long if it would be too difficult to get it flat. I mean would it hold the curve for storage if you only used it once in a while?

    That’s a very good point . Plus the temperature its stored would play into it .
