Title: What's the difference?
Post by: yuyipihu on December 29, 2020, 04:29 AM
I was trolling festoolrecon today and saw two different versions of the TS 75 come up for sale:  the older version 574684 and a newer 575390.  I know that the 575390 is the current revision of the TS75, but can anyone tell me what actually changed between that one and the prior model that it replaced?  They're charging $30 more for the reconned 575390, so I was just wondering why?

Not 100% sure, but does the 574684 come with a guide rail? I believe the 575390 comes with a 75" guide rail.

Yes, guide rail / no guide rail.

$30 more for a $200 guide rail?

That seems to be the case from what I can tell.

If you google the numbers you can see both packages are supposed to come with a guide rail.

As the original adverts of the saws in question are not up anymore on the recon site because they're sold, it is impossible to tell what the difference was between the packages Festool actually sold.

The newer saw is probably $30 more just because it is newer.

Side question - I use to get Recon notices but not anymore. If I try to set up notices again on the recon site I get "oops" warning. Seems like a security issue. Anyone else get the same?

Thanks

On the other hand when I googled those numbers I found dealer sites listing one # with rail and the other # without.  [huh]

 Perhaps Derick will pop in with a clarification.

Which sites? These couple of links on the first google page I got all list 574684 with a rail.

And the current 575390 also comes with a rail.

I rechecked. I looked the wrong number.

Could it be metric vs standard? Festool thought all of us American's were too stupid to learn metric or something not long ago, and now we can't buy metric tools in the USA anymore. They do offer metric stickers or to send some tools in and Festool will replace the measuring parts with metric for a charge.

Edit: Could it also be the dust nozzle upgrade difference? My TS75 has a completely different part number and it is metric.

Don't blame Festool on that. It's all about Complaints from US users.
