TS 55 REQ recall, fact or fiction
« on: July 11, 2013, 07:35 AM »
Saw some mention of this while wandering the web. Is there any truth to this? Something about the blade not retracting as it should.
Life is too short for bad wine or cheap tools.

Hi -

Festool has requested stock back for inspection.... we are not aware of any consumer level recall.

I believe this is being pro-active, and responsible - given how new the product is.

Cheers -

Rob

Festool has notified the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada of a potential problem with the plunge mechanism on some TS 55 REQ Plunge-Cut Track Saws.  While investigation is continuing, Festool, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), intends to recall affected units. If you have a TS 55 REQ Plunge Cut Track Saw, please discontinue use immediately and call Festool directly at 1-855-784-9727.
