    I noticed that one of our Canadian online tool dealers seems to be running a big promo on the Triton track saw, I’ve never seen them before and didn’t know they even offered one. The price point is pretty low (About $400 Cad – so probably a bit cheaper in the US – including the track) and it looks like they took care of two things that are missing on the Festool (anti-kick back and no more tipping when cutting at a 45).

    I’m impressed with the looks of this – has anyone used it hands on?

    I assume they are made by the same company (Triton) that JohnS posted some info on not too long ago. Australian company?

    It will be interesting to see if this is a legit option in the track saw market.

    That’s pretty cool I like the anti kickback lock. It does look similar to the grizzly track saw which makes me wonder if they are made in the same factory.

    Yes – the same company that makes the routers and the other jaw / clamp + workstation that John posted. Apparently Kreg is the distributor for them in North America – that actually builds my confidence in them quite a bit, I’ve always liked my Kreg stuff – a nice blend of works well but still reasonably priced.

    Oh wow I didn’t relies kreg was involved. Everything I have gotten from kreg I have liked and thought was well built.

    Interesting…I just want to know if the tracks are compatible with Festool or if they match the Grizzly ones…

    If it matches the makita/festool tracks that would be cool. I still don’t get why the festool is so much money.

    Good to see more competition,

    Are you seeing this bosch?

    The price point is not far off from the Makita saw. I would be interested to see a comparison of the two

    I wasn’t able to find it available in the US. It is listed on the Amazon site, but not currently available.

    Never heard of them before. Mark couldn’t find them for sale here. That could be why lol. I’d like to learn re before I buy my track saw. Gotta see all my options first

    I think they are Australian but I am not 100%. That seems to be where I saw all of the stuff available to buy online, so that is my assumption.

    Triton definitely makes a quality router, so I would assume they have a decent track saw. They are somewhat similar to a Festool in some of the products they come out with (like that workcenter) but just a wee bit lower in price. Like a Bosch-esque quality and price rather than the extra green tax. Looks like an interesting option for a track saw if it is available…

    haha…

    I was not impressed with the dust collection in the video though….

    I noticed they weren’t in stock on Amazon.com – here’s a link to where I found them, they seem to have a really decent set of accessories available. I was tempted to but the rail bag for my festool rails. They have clamps, different lengths of track, angle guide, rip guide and even a dust bag for the dust port – something NAINA with Festool right now.

    I’d stick with the 2 proven ones Makita and Festool. I’ve tried the off brands and was burned. I see that one seemed to have a short track too.

    This looks like a rebranded DeWalt…similar accessories too.

    I wonder if they will be in stores. Price is not that bad.

    After reading about Dirty’s bad experience a while ago on CT, I’ve been leery of any of the “other” brands…

    Ditto! See the excitement at a Track Saw alternative?

    Exactly.

    I like the angle guide that is on the site.

    One thing I will have to say for it is that I like the fact that it takes a normal 6 1/2″ blade. Makes it easier to find a replacement.

    Yeah, some of the accessories look really nice. I wish I could see the rails in person, I have a feeling they must be compatible with someone – I’ve heard Mafell and Bosch use the same system for some tools. I wonder if these are close to the DeWalt.

    If your not used to Plunge cutting with a track saw. That anti kick could really help.
