The Metabo TS 254 M is a new light-weight jobsite saw. It is the smaller version of the existing Metabo TS 254. It is lighter, smaller, and cheaper, but still uses the same sized saw blades as its big brother.
Light weight for building sites
With only 24.4 kilo’s the TS 254 M is 9 kilograms lighter than the original TS 254. This makes it much easier to carry around a building site, which is the place its mostly like to be used.
Low cost for home woodworkers
However, thanks to its low cost (about half of the original TS 254), it may also become a popular machine with home woodworkers. This also happened with Bosch’s GTS 635-216, which seems to be taken over the popularity of the original GTS 10 XC thanks to its low cost, while maintaining build quality.
One thing that stands out is the fact that the fence locks both in the front and the back. It can also be removed quickly by lifting the handle. A good fence is rare on machines in this price range, and if it is as good in practice as it seems, it could make this machine a real winner.
