Festool TSC 55 Basic vs TSC 55 Kit
« on: April 16, 2018, 01:27 PM »
I am looking at purchasing the TSC 55 but was wondering what the difference between the Basic that is just the saw and dust bag at $490 vs the Airstream battery which comes with Saw, dust bag, 2 air stream batteries and charger for $820.

That's a $320 difference where if I buy the 2 airstream batteries and the charger all at the retail of $84 I'm at $252. I would assume buying the $820 kit I would be getting a discount but you're actually paying more or am I missing something? And the $820 kit does not come with the rail.

The $820 kit has 2 SCA8 chargers and 2 batteries.  $84 x 4 = 336.  So you save $6.    [big grin]

I don’t think that either of those two sets comes with a guide rail. I think that set is $930.
