Track saw updates
« on: August 01, 2017, 12:59 PM »
Been using Festool for awhile now through a shop that I help with.
Now saved enough to purchase all the tools that I had listed in my wishlist.
My question is:
Should I wait to buy the track saws?
Are they about to come out with an update soon like the the new sander that will be able to run battery and corded?
Or maybe any other tools getting updates that I should wait on?

Also, I just finished the woodshop build.
And I am filling it as I speak.
How lucky could I get to receive a Festool banner?  [wink] Please?

There's probably not going to be a new update anytime soon.

Yea I doubt they are going to release a replacement to the TS 55 REQ or TSC 55 anytime soon.

You're safe to buy the TS 55 REQ, TS 75 EQ or TSC 55 REB. There won't be any updates in the near future.

Interesting the current version of the TS 75 is an EQ and not an REQ. Huh, I didnt notice that before.

If new TS75 REQ came out with improved trunions, I would swap mine in a heartbeat.

If these tools are for earning a living then get busy with what's available today. As fundamental a tracksaw can be there is no point to waiting
