I got the TS55, the vacuum and the table. The larger saw wasn't
available at that time.
I cut up my sheetgoods on a vertical panel saw, and the most useful
aspect for the TS55 has been to cut accurate bevels. I easily and
accurately cut a slab for an angled table leg. Any other method would
have been a nightmare.
I had to cut up a heavy slab of bubunga for a table top that I
couldn't lift singlehandedly. I left it on the bed of my pickup, put a
sheet of foam insulation under it, and cut it precisely with the TS55.
I don't use it that often, but has saved my ass when I needed it.
Your quote is off base.

I simply gave him a reason NOT to get one.... did you follow the link I
gave him? It simply shows a guy that has BOTH the Festool and the
Makita and he likes the Makita better.
