Hi all, Enjoying my P1CC so far. Does all it is supposed to do etc.
After a short time of use, it seems to get VERY hot. True, my previous was a top handle, but it gets hot enough to bother me. Not a nice toasty warm.
The cuts I was making were not really very hard, and it heated up fairly quick. Is this normal for this type of motor? Should I be worried? This is the 240v version being used in Europe, if that makes a diff.
That's interesting, do you run your P1cc with a vacuum? I have the North American 110V version but I find that running at speed 6 produces heat in the head but not so much the motor but I run my P1cc with dust collection. After turning the P1cc off I find that there's significant airflow being pulled through the intake vents for the motor when the vacuum is running. At worst the housing around the motor gets a little warm but the head feels significantly warmer than the area around the motor.

Mine gets warm after extended use. Your hands are where the motor is and I think it is normal for these types of barrel grip machines. I have four different BG jigsaws and they all get warm with use. It has never been hot enough to be uncomfortable, though...I would say a more "nice toasty warm".
Yeah it shouldn't heat up to the point the grip is uncomfortable to hold. I actually find that the motor can actually be significantly cooler than the head if I'm taking fairly light cuts at speed 6 with a vacuum attached.
I think you guys might have something wrong with your 220V models. I remember seeing a very lengthy comment on the German P1cc video on Mafell's channel and the guy who posted it complained of significant heat issues. He later had a followup comment:
Winfried Gorny3 months ago My job became really hard. So much work, that I forgot to tell: Two technicians from Mafell visited me at the end of last year. They had look at how I work, and gave me to understand that my old Mafell could have had a mistake, because in their opinion the saw is indeed hot but not as hot that you must put it out of your hand, as I told. The fact was - after repair the saw never got as hot as before! But they gave me a second saw for free - to make it possible to change saws after a while. And they told me that I can take the second saw, even when I am thinking a change will not be necessary! Whow thumbs up for Mafell. Again I have to say: The best tool for my behaviour! - And the service - could not be better! - Thanks, Mafell! :-)
For a while I was wondering what people were talking about because I did not notice the P1 getting hot at all. After I used it to make the cut out for a kitchen sink in particle board (40 mm or so thickness) I knew it. Towards the end the gearbox was too hot to grab.
So obviously before I used it not long enough to get this hot. I used an extractor but it was summer and 30 °C or alike.
It does not get this much use, mostly only quick short tasks. So I was thinking maybe the bearings have to run in and after some use the issue is not that bad anymore.
I noticed this on routers. With a new router the bearing shield got also very hot. After some use not so much.
So zaax, how is it now? Or anyone having the machine and maybe noticed soch a behaviour.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

alvychippy: It's the board hosts, that are having an idea, of somebody perhaps paying over the odds to acquire the board to administer it.... Obviously hopes are set high, Mafell isn't interested, so it carries on
