Top 10 Best Track Saws 2019 – 2020 [BUYER’S GUIDE]

1, Makita SP6000J1

6-1/2″ Plunge Circular Saw Kit, with Stackable Tool case and 55″ Guide Rail
SPLINTER-FREE CUTS
The Makita 6-1/2” Plunge Cut Circular Saw and 55” Guide Rail (model SP6000J1) work together to produce accurate cuts with minimal tear-out. The saw combines a powerful 12 AMP motor and a large cutting capacity with magnesium components for less weight and electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load for smooth cutting and a splinter-free mirror finish. The SP6000J1 is a more portable option to a table saw for select applications, and it is ideal for use on the jobsite or in a workshop.
Precision Settings and Features for Quality Cuts
The SP6000J1 saw has a bevel capability of -1° to 48° with positive stops at 22.5° and 45°. The saw delivers precise cutting, as the position of the blade enters the material on the same cutting line whether cutting straight or bevel. In addition, the saw has close-to-wall cutting (11/16-inch) for expanded cutting applications. The built-in depth stop allows a preliminary cut of 1/16-inch to be performed before the entire material is cut through for clean and splinter-free cutting.
12 AMP Direct-Drive Power for Smooth Cutting
The SP6000J1 has a powerful 12 AMP motor with soft start for smooth start-ups, and Electronic Speed Control to maintain a constant speed under load for smooth cutting. The variable speed dial control (2,000 – 5,200 RPM) allows the user to set the speed for optimum performance in a variety of materials. The built-in torque limiter helps prevent motor burnout, with an electric brake for added productivity.

2, Festool 561438 TS 75 EQ

The TS 75 EQ features an 8-1/4″ blade (30mm arbor) with a 13 amp, 120V motor that can be adjusted from 1,350-3,550 RPM. Festool products can only be sold in the 50 states

Festool’s TS 75 EQ keeps all the great features of its predecessor and adds new features that make the plunge saw more convenient, more capable, and more user-friendly. A new, larger Thumb Interlock makes it easier to switch on the power and pivot the blade down for cutting, while a new Blade Lock disconnects the power switch and locks the blade down in position for removal. Plunge cuts in the middle of a workpiece are easier than ever, since the riving knife is now spring-loaded and automatically retracts when plunging.

When used with the Festool Guide rail system, the TS 75 is ideal for installation of laminate flooring systems and allows cutting just 3/8″ off a wall. Crosscutting veneered materials with most circular saws leaves a splintered mess. Festool’s new sacrificial Splinter Guard rests on the workpiece directly above the cut, providing “zero clearance” support at the blade for the top veneer, resulting in clean, chip-free cuts in melamine, veneered plywood, and even high-pressure laminates. The suggested 75″ guide rail allows for fast precise cuts with little or no setup time, since the edge guide automatically aligns to the cutline.

Electronic variable-speed control automatically maintains a constant blade speed under load, and the soft start and automatic idle cut down on operator fatigue and noise. The Festool TS 75 EQ uses an 8-1/4″ diameter blade, but still provides a 2-3/4″ cut at 90° and a 2-1/8″ cut at 45°. Festool TS 75 EQ includes a T-LOC Systainer SYS 5 storage box, 36-tooth carbide tipped blade, 75″ guide rail, limit stop, and chip deflector.

3, SHOP FOX W1835

Shop Fox W1835 Track Saw
This is a great portable option for accurately cutting sheet goods without a table saw or panel saw. Designed to be used with the D4362 Shop Fox Guide Rail and D4363 Accessory Pack (not included), the track saw and guide rail combination is great for trimming door bottoms, making plunge cuts in the middle panels and cutting full sheets of plywood. The Track Saw features a plunge cutting action and true riving knife for unmatched safety over conventional circular saws. Even when used without the guide rail, this saw is a highly accurate, and provides additional safety over traditional cutting circular saw. Once you use this saw, you’ll never want to use your old circular again.
• Motor: 120V, 9A, 1.1 kW, 5500 RPM
• Included Saw blade: 160mm x 20mm x 48T
• For optimal performance, add the optional 50″ Guide Rail (D4362) and Accessory Pack (D4363) when ordering
Plunge and Straight Cutting
Plunge cuts are made by positioning the track or saw directly on the workpiece so that the blade begins cutting as soon as it is lowered. This type of cut works well for removing an area within the workpiece without sawing through the outer perimeter. The plunge action eliminates dangerous flip-up blade guards and the riving knife lowers the risk of blade pinching and the resultant kickback. Cut indicator arrows show where the plunge cut will start and stop when the blade is fully extended. The optional D4362 Guide Rail is indispensable when used with the Track Saw for precise cuts with little to no tear-out.
Optional Accessories
Using the Shop Fox Track Saw with the D4362 Guide Rail allows for quick and precise cuts with minimal setup time. Both straight cuts and plunge cuts can be made in conjunction with the guide rail. To get the most out of your track saw when using it with the mated guide rail, we recommend the D4363 accessory pack as well – this includes two F-clamps, a stop, and a stabilizer designed for use with the track that is invaluable for consistently uniform cuts, especially when the saw is used for bevel cutting.
Feature Packed
Shown with Optional Accessories
This reasonably priced saw is packed with features such as a bevel gauge with lock for performing bevel cuts up to 45-degrees, a 1-1/2-inch adjustable dust collection port, primary and secondary handles for stability while cutting, continuous cutting depth limiter and spring-loaded riving knife to reduce the risk of kickback or pinching.

4, DEWALT DWS520K

A great choice for finish carpenters, woodworkers, and contractors looking for a portable tool to make straight, splinter-free, precise cuts, the DEWALT DWS520K Track Saw combines the precision and cut-quality of a table saw, the capacity of a panel saw, and the portability of a circular saw.
Straight, Precise Cuts
The DWS520K TrackSaw travels along an anti-slip aluminum track, enabling you to make clean, straight and precise cuts (track not included). The zero-clearance track features anti-splinter edges indicating the exact cut location, so cut positioning is fast, intuitive, predictable, and accurate. The track’s underside has two friction strips to “grab” the material — keeping the track from moving without the need for additional clamping. The top side of the track has four low-friction glide strips, enabling the saw to smoothly travel along the track. Tracks are available in several lengths. All wear components are user-replaceable.
Power, Convenience, and Versatility
The DWS520K features a DEWALT-built, 1,300 watt motor, providing enough power to cut though hardwoods, and all common woodworking and construction materials. The straight plunge mechanism enables the user to make clean, straight, and splinter-free inside (plunge) cuts. A continuous anti-kick-back feature can be engaged as well, providing additional control by only allowing the saw to move in a forward direction on the track and thus preventing kickback.
The DWS520K also has a dust management system with a universal 1-1/4-inch dust port that collects up to 90 percent of excess dust and debris. A 6-1/2-inch, 48-tooth woodworking blade with a laser cut plate and precision ground teeth provides exceptional cut quality. You’ll be able to cut at a 2-1/8-inch depth at a 90-degree bevel and 1-5/8 inches at a 45-degree bevel, enabling you to cut through a variety of common materials. The DWS520K is great for:
• Ripping, crosscutting and mitering sheet goods
• Truing/edge joining
• Inlay cut outs and hardwood flooring
• Cutting cabinet openings, inside plunge cuts
• Door trimming on the hinges
• Cutting multiple-pieces at once (gang cutting)
