Makita have come up with an answer to the Festool TSC55R - which is you are a Makita cordless user like I am is very interesting -



The motor is variable speed and brushless, but two batteries are required (it won't run on one alone)

I have to say that the cord on my plunge saw is a nuisance when it's on the track, but I don't like faffing about with batteries every twenty minutes either

Problem is, what do you do whjen you are on a site or part of a site where there is no power, but where the accuracy and cleanliness of a plunge saw is perhaps required (think firestopping doors, or installing kitchens in powerless voids, for example)? Admittedly a one trick pony, but a useful alternative to the Festool - especially as there are lot moe guys out there with Mak batteries than Fes ones

Yes. That's a bit of a bugbear on all cordless saws. I know you can hook this cordlessnsaw up to a corded vac. such as the Starmix/Metabo/Mafell models, but that's actually pretty darned pointless. No sign of a bag from Makita, either, so a bit of a mystery at present. Hopefully they'll sort it out before we see the beastie in Europe

Edit: Just realised - Makita do have a cordless vacuum, the DVC350, as a basic unit and there is a full HEPA (like M-class) battery extractor avauilable in the USA whic (hopefully) will appear here in due course. You can actually see the vac in question (marked "36v" which means 2 x 18v) at floor level at about 0:37 to 0:46 in the video below as well as talked about at 1:10 to 1:32 as well as at 1:51 to 1:58



I have mentioned this in an earlier thread on Makita vacuums

So assuming you want a cordless vac too then you need 4 batteries of high Ah. Then of course you still have the problem of a hose which for me is more of a pain than the power cable :lol:
