There's no Mafell dealer in Canada that I'm aware of. My bigger concern with buying a Mafell Track Saw would be warranty issues.
What do you do with a Mafell if you need to fix it for any reason?
Do you ship it back to Pennsylvania for a repair?
There's no warranty or service for a Mafell once it ships across the boarder.
I have 13 authorized Festool repair Centers in Edmonton. You don't don't have to worry about a service Center with Festool.
As much as I hate spending the money, I'll probably have to bite the bullet on the TS 75. I want to cut some hardwood tops for furniture and tables.
I also want to get the Festool 1400 series router for my freehand work. I've used a friend's 1400 for a couple of projects. It's a killer router. It's easy on the hands during circle cuts.
The TS 75 is still better than the Mafell for thick woods so you are getting a fantastic saw, some could argue better. I am not sure of the depth of cit for the Mafell 80ec, I think its over 3" and is a KSS, I think those run on regular tracks as well though, not sure. That may be the TS 75 comparison.
We all think different, I guess I am a glass half full guy. I never bought a tool worrying about the warranty. I own half a dozen from Italy and Germany, I do my research and trust it. If they failed I would be screwed, fact is it's past 3 years and they are all running strong. This has served me well and in 30 years only two tools ever broke during a warranty period, that's another thread topic.
Anyhow, I sold my Festool OF 1400 and OF 1010 I didn't care for them. I had them both for near a year, possibly after a year you might change your mind as well. Once I bought the Festool OF 2200 I rarely picked up any other router as for me the OF 2200 handled better than the OF1400, even though it is much larger. And the dust collection is just so much better on the OF2200. For small free hand I use my DEWalt 618's and 611's and even my OF 22000 if it isn't physically too large for the work piece.
I have my preference for how the dust collection hose attaches and I prefer it integral to the router design and need the dust port going up like on the OF 2200 and DeWalt 618's. The OF 1400 over time started feeling loose and cheap to me and the few metal parts on the OF 1400 and OF 1010 started to rust when no other tools n my shop ever have, not even cast iron. I know you are looking at the OF 1400 but for the OF 1010 I truly think my little DeWalt 611 is better for both power and ease of use. I can only go off how I feel, some guys might think I am nuts. Using routers everyday as my job I have developed preference. I do work in a shop though and my dust collection comes down from above so that does make a difference on that, still I think the entire line of Festool router needs an update badly! I have a list of upgrades I would like made to the Festool routers , but again that's for another thread. The Festool routers have have any major changes in I think 7 years, it's time.
