what is this saw like in use?  i have handled it in an axminster store and liked the ergo's but didnt make any sawdust.

is it powerful enough and so on?
turns out that woodworking is 1% making things you'll use, 4% making bespoke high end firewood, 15% cleaning, and 80% looking for the blinking thing you just put down

I’ve had one for a few years.  I’ve also owned the TS55 and the TS75.  It feels more powerful than the TS55, and I would say the ergonomics, dust collection accuracy are all on par with the TS55.  The real bonus being you get to use the Mafell style rail.

Sorry- disregard, I realize you are talking about the table saw, not the track saw.

I own that tablesaw,  Not sure if its the same model # since Im in the states and its probably a good 10 years old.  Not sure if they have made any updates in that time but its been a great saw for me.  I have it on the gravity stand which makes moving and storing it very nice.  With a sharp blade it will handle anything a contractor saw should with no complaining.  Will it replace a cabinet saw? no, but its not really designed to.  If mine broke today I would rebuy it tomorrow without question.  Granted, I dont use it very often since I do have a unisaw and CNC but for mobile work its great.  Hope that helps.
