Motor and electronics, arbor assembly, and tilt mechanism are critical. The rest is just icing on the cake.
I have an MT55. I use the scoring function more than I thought I would, but if one never has one, then it is harder to miss it.
It is sort of like comparing the Metabo drills with the Mafell drills... The majority of the DNA is the same, and this is also true with the two saws.
You get the good tracks, and the good motor.Not sure where you get the tracks from, as I got Bosch tracks because they have those 'in-country'. You may need to timberwolf them, or import them, and 1600-mm size make the shipping add up.
As mentioned you do not get:
- the scoring (which I use on sheets)
- the quick blade change (which I rarely take advantage of)
- the other feature (which I do not use)
If I was in the US and wanted a 110v saw, I would be looking hard at getting the 110v Bosch in from the UK, and weighing up the costs.
You also have to do something with the cord... Either replace the cord with a pigtail with a Nuetrik TrueOne, or maybe a Plug-it, or just a pigtail with a 110v US-Male end. They are double insulated so there is no ground, just the blue/brown which is like US white/black.
