I , would lilike to order the MT55CC plunge saw with the 160 and 110 guide rails and other accesories but Timberwolfcom and mafell store.com don't have that option for accessories am I missing something? Any links will be greatly appreciated.
Are you trying to buy the saw with the 160 & 110 rail as some kind of a "kit" in order to get a discount or something? Each item is purchased separately but it doesn't make any sense that they wouldn't sell them to you. When I bought my MT55 I bought the saw, the 110,160,310, rail connector and a few other items. I just called and talked to David at Timberwolf using the phone number from the web site and had no problems at all getting exactly what i wanted to buy. If you haven't already tried calling them I would suggest that option. If they don't answer leave a message and they get back to you fast.
Char- It is strange how the web site is set up. If you look under the KSS400 they have all the following information which seems to be the accessories you are looking for. The MT55 track saw uses the same rails as the KSS400 and a bunch of their other tools (The F Rails). You can either check the boxes on the KSS400 area of the site or call them Monday as you said. When I placed my order I planned to just use the web site also but ended up calling them the following morning to add a couple things to the order and found them to be really helpful.
NOTE: I am unsure if the blades for the MT55 and KSS400 are the same or not. David at Timberwolf can help with the blades if you intend to order extras with the saw. There is another thread about blades on this site to consider as well. Also, if your shipment is the same as mine, it will come with a nice catalogue that will show all the accessories. I am pretty sure that you can also access this catalogue sheet from the MT55 page on the timberwolf site.

Thanks again, how do you like the saw? I sold my Makita track saw and wanted to replace it with the Festool Ts55 Req since I own a few Festools but after reading some reviews it's got less power than the Makita and now it's being recalled so I decided on the Mafell , I hope that for the extra $300 it won't disappoint me.
Two features alone are worth the extra $ for me. The blade change system and the bevel with one knob instead of needing two. I think it was Jalvis that mentioned that the simplicity of the blade change has made it a no brainer to change the blade for different applications. All the other features: scoring function, cuprex motor power, far superior rail connector, fully enclosed blade, overall feel & mafell durability are all just bonuses which believe it or not I would be willing to still pay more for. Not before I bought & used the saw but after the fact looking back I wouldn't be upset if it cost a few hundred dollars higher. It might be a weird plus but I really like the fact that mafell specializes in huge expensive lifetime type of machinery and so much of their production happens in house with their own casting equipment etc. I bet if one were to keep track of mileage the mafell would outlast the other brands by more than the cost difference.
I had a subcontractor installing solid plastic toilet partitions that are 1" (25mm) thick. The supplier sent hime with a panel that was 16" wide x 7' tall but he needed to rip it to 5" wide. The MT55 chewed through it and after a round over bit on a router it looked a lot better than the factory edge. Of course this could be done with other brands but I bet they would bog down a bit on the thick solid plastic. It really grips the blade. I have also had great luck with mdf, melamine, maple veneered mdf, solid hardwoods etc. It has never felt underpowered and has perfect dust collection.
I am interested to hear your honest opinion about the saw since you have experience with other brands as well. I would also be interested if anyone has anything in the negative column for this saw, I don't but am always interested in constructive criticism.
The long winded response shows how fired up I am about the tools
Wow, I ordered it yesterday and got it today! No extra cost on shipping either, I know they're 7 hours away from me but still, for starters that's refreshing,and David from Timberwoolf tools is great to deal with, the saw and guide rail Looks really cool much narower than my ex makita rail and it's funny how the hard plastic box looks exactly like my Makita except its light gray , I will put it to work tomorrow doing some wainscoting paneling where both top and bottom edges will be exposed so it will be put to test right away and I will post back with the results, I can't wait to play with my new toy.Thank you all for your help and advice on this tool.
I just ripped a bunch of 1 1'8" thick hard maple butcher block down today. Used a new-ish 32 tooth mafell blade. Most of them only needed the factory bullnose removed so they were really close to the edge. The cutoffs were almost paper thin but consistent all the way down. The cut lines were perfect, not a bit of tear out and no burning. Plenty of power too. It would have been very hard to get the cut quality from a table saw since I was so close to the edge.
Ya applications like these are where a tracksaw shines over a table saw. It will never replace one out and out in my opinion but its stuff like that that makes you wonder why you didn't have one earlier.

Yeah using the best tool for each job situation I've seen myself cut 4 sheets of 18mm ply all in 1 go using the rails and the ksp85 saves having to set up 4 times just a case of making sure they are all flush down 1 side I wouldn't be without the guide rails now I have them
abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.

lasse: Thanks for the tip! I have own a mafell rail which is 160 cm and one that is 80 cm. Will it work just as well or will I need to buy rail that is 110 cm?
