    Definitely has to be the top 2 brands for track saws…Festool and Makita…at least in the U.S.

    Doesn’t Dewalt have their own track saw? I know they came out with it years ago as a competitive alternative, no different than Makita doing such. Is it discontinued? Or is it inherently crap?

    It never seemed to rank as high in tool reviews. They had a 28v model sold in the US for a while as well as an 18v model they sold in the UK for a bit. You can still get their 110v model. I have used one and the plunge action is a bit awkward vs the Festool.

    There are pics of a new 60v Flexvolt model circulating around.

    I tried one at IWF when they first came out, but thought the Festool was also better plunge action.

    I made a zero clearance guide for my fuel 6 1/2 ” cordless saw , it’s the next best thing…you stack a rip of 3/4 ” wood on a piece of 1/4 inch that’s wide then run the saw down it and it always works for that particular saw….it’s not a track saw but handy.

    Yes, it’s pretty bulky. Takes 2 batteries.

    Actually it can run off one battery, just with less power obviously

    Cool. I have no idea . I think an plate adapter could be made to make cordless saws run on a festool tracksaw , but likely the blade wouldn’t need to run as tight to edge in case it was out of calibration or moved some . I like the power the fuel saws have for the price .

    I pulled this up from the Dewalt site. I thought they made a cordless as well. For some reason this was the only picture available from the page of “track saws”.

    Also see nothing recent as far as reviews go so maybe its not in circulation.

    It’s an ol school track.

    Mafell has a cordless version of its KSS saw and Festool is coming out with its version of this saw in a few months and I believe one version will be cordless too. I think cordless is getting better and has its place onsite. In a shop, it loses some appeal, but not having to fight a cord or DC hose is appealing, especially cutting sheet goods.

    I was hoping DeWalt Milwaukee or Bosch would do one soon.

    It would just be nice if Bosch would bring their saw over here, I would sell my festool and get one in a heart beat so that I only have one set of tracks to work with.

    I wish they would too. The market is wide open for an entry here.

    Does the Bosch work on the Festool tracks?

    #550573

    I kinda think this would be nice to have. With the adapter I could use the newer Dewalt batteries and it would work on my Festool tracks….

    Thats a good question, the bosch is a stripped down mafell and the mafell works on festool tracks.

    The Bosch won’t work on a Festool track, the tracks are different. The Mafell is manufactured to accept both tracks. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that correct.
