I very much dislike Makita's slide binder method of sealing dust bag. So much so that the bag in photo was hardly used though it's probably 20+ years old.
I ordered a Hitachi bag once with similar wire spring clip attachment as the Bosch photo without realizing the Hitachi saws it was made for had a 2-½" nozzle. I'm sure the Bosch is sized closer to 38mm but you might double check.
I'm thinking of salvaging the interior plastic backbone from the Makita and using heat gun to flare out the little arms/fingers wider then constructing my own bag with a zipper
I tried every left over bag I had in my arsenal from years gone by and none worked very well. I finally got the Festool bag working perfectly. I had to reinvent the wheel though. I almost completely aborted the idea. What eventually worked is I had to fabricate a new plastic port. It works better straight vs. The 45 degree it comes standard with. This is all on the kss60. But I believe the port hole and concept are the same for the mt55cc.

I can totally see how/why the Festool bag works well, given that its internal wire frame sensibly ensures that the bag is kept fully expanded, to allow good passive flow of dust from the saw dust chute into the back of the bag. However, it irritates the heck out of me that Festool screw, screw, screw, and screw some more, on the pricing of their primary and their accessory products - to which I say, in return: "well, screw you, too, Festool!" ;-) ...Speaking of which, I was comparing the price of the Kapex 'miterfast' angle finder (goniometer), earlier this morning, and was, not for the first time, absolutely disgusted with the pricing - more thantriple that of the YoungCo OneShot or BORA MiteriX angle finders / goniometers... I despair of Festool - a company with such enormous potential, scuppered by greed. [/End Rant]
Anyway, I ordered a very cheap mitre saw dust bag, and I will upload a pic of it attached to my MT55CC when I receive it through the mail.
Here's the one I ordered - unfortunately, it has a feeble internal wire frame that doesn't expand the bag enough, but I intend to modify it a little, probably using a coat-hanger. For the money, it's a no-brainer, as it's ridiculously cheap and won't hurt my wallet if it turns out to not work well with the MT55CC:
So I guess the dust bag pictured on the MT55 18M bl is new.
Looking at the video it seems there's some sort of Mafell engineering going on. The red area below inlet is a trigger release(?) Perhaps a quick disconnect shuts off both exhaust port on saw and the bag as well - in tandem (?) Maybe not, that would be a tall order without making a mess.
edit - oh, ok so you don't get a zipper. The red horse shoe is something that quick clamps onto the existing saw exhaust and then once the bag is pulled off you un-snap the clip on top of the bag to open the 'hatch' and empty from front. (?)
The one in your posted pic looks the same as the one on the KSS50 18M (maybe also identical, on the MT55 18M bl you mentioned). I like that they've incorporated a decent bag-expanding internal wire frame, just like I was describing earlier, in relation to Festool's dustbag, although it's a pity if this new Mafell dustbag lacks a zip (and pretty lame if Mafell ommitted this, especially considering how expensive this accessory is likely to be):
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?
