Did this video help you?

Cal L: This video is spot on regarding choices. I would personally go with DeWalt because I think they are more rugged (well... as much as value engineer will allow) and I would only use the tracks to cut straight thingys a such as the edge of a deck. But if you are into fine woodworking, especially a system, as well as less concerned about a motor that can handle more abuse, then the 50% up-charge compared to the DeWalt is irrelevant. A tool is made to do a job, if the returns justifies the investment, the cost becomes a non-issue. DeWalt for me, but I ain’t cutting premium curtly maple veneered panels.

Damon Jones: any shop vac work fine ,i have every brand of tool all adapt to dust collection just fine

Damon Jones: for value.... festool is not even in the ball park

HCAC BUILD: Festool is French for "I stick it in your butt" :-)

Steve Harrington: I haven't read all the comments here but of the ones I have read no-one has mentioned that the track for the DeWalt is usable on both sides. Marc barely mentioned this but it is a big selling point to me. My first use of my Festool was to make a 9 foot cut opening in a tall hallway panel. One side of the opening was easy pushing the saw up the cut line but the other side I had to stand high on a ladder and cut in the downward direction. Much more difficult especially with vacuum hose and power cord. The DeWalt reversible track would have made this much easier and I could see its benefits in many situations.

Alberto Vasquez: Festool just puts a big hole in your pocket and descourages you from upgrading to new technologies later on

y0utube5uxx: Not too bad review!

MOPAR2U: Love Dewalt products but I think Festool is a better fit for me first time I ever heard of that company glad I found this review.

Donnachadha O Donovan: Hi I am just wondering about cutting anti splinter strip on my DeWalt track saw. My trouble is I can't cut the start of it as the saw base will be off the track to do that , is that normal or am I doing something wrong? Some help please

Smedleydog1: You mentioned the cut edge. Did you use the same blade on both saws? If not, there's probably the difference. The Festool is about $660 on line and the DeWalt comes with a longer track for about $150 less or can be had with two tracks one 59in & one 109in for about $70 less. And you can use the DeWalt on either side of the track. Sounds like a no brainer to me. Buy a kregg saw guide or make your own.
Oh, I almost forgot, you can get the DeWalt in a cordless model also.

me 2: Are u using the same blade in both? That would make a cut difference.

peter saile: I have the cordless Dewalt track saw and love it

Gary Karczewski: After contacting many tool retailers many say that both Makita and Dewalt is coming on strong to overtake Festool Plunge Saw as per monthly sales. Have you looked at the Makita and do you have any comments plus or minus on the Makita?

Barry Manclark: I have a Festool miter drop saw and to be honest the fence settings are so inaccurate, I have to use a straight edge to align the two fences! There is no adjustment at all!
The Festool track saw just uses cheap olite bearings on the armature end of the shaft! This is what $20 el-cheapo power tools use! The main power switch is cheap no markings Chinese!
After years of professional work, only 5 years with Festool, .. I have come to the conclusion:
.."Deep inside it's posh exterior, .. is found engineering quite inferior"
They certainly sell on looks.
I'm looking for a good reliable track saw. DeWalt service support is shocking to non-existent here in Australia, so I may go with the Makita this time round. ... The Festeringtool is going out with the trash!

It's a pitty, I had invested quite a bit in their system. .........

Marty Josephson: You should disqualify yourself, if this is a dewalt review?, festool should not be in the review!!!!

Paul Landin: Great vid., but what is the sound track of the video?

KamekoBruns: So here's the important question.

Why is there a pink feather boa hanging on the coat rack in the background?

labrat7357: I have just settled on a festool TS55 and the thing that swayed me is an after market guide rail square called a GRS-16 that makes square cuts extremely easy. It will fit the default standard rail design of festool, makita and triton track saws but not bosch or dewalt. This fits with your "big picture" view. New products are being made for track saws but mostly for what is seen as the standard track. Moving away from that "standard" track a little bit like makita with its "anti-failover lip" does not stop other things working with it but a completely different design like bosch and dewalt does prevent the use of after market items.I know hind site is wonderful.All the best.

ldg332004: I'm sure Festool is a fine product,BUT a track saw is $1000, a vacuum is $1000, I wouldn't doubt their smallest table is $1000.No thank's.

Angie Overton: I appreciate the comparison. I was almost sold on the Dewalt. However one thing ultimately swayed me. The price on the Dewalt is tempting. But the Festool "system" has a huge draw. I do want the domino. I do want the MFT table. I really like the dust collection on Festool. So the overall system is what makes it worth the extra money.
