The TS254 is an all-round decent machine, with no significant advantages or disadvantages when compared to similar machines like the Bosch GTS 10 J or DeWalt DWE7492. Its fence works well enough, locking into place in the front, and is quite accurate if well-adjusted.
Is it quite lightweight and can be moved around easily, especially with the optional wheel set. It is powerful enough for most tasks, with its 2000 Watt motor.
One common problem by many users is that after some time the height adjustment mechanism breaks down. The blade and motor are moved up and down by a threaded rod. However, after some time the thread can get worn out, and it will no longer work.
According to Stephen from Suffolk Craftsmen, who made a video about this problem (see below), Metabo has replaced this on newer machines with a much thicker, ACME-style thread. If you want to check whether you have the new or the old type of thread, the old part number is 00668380. So if you have that listed, then you have the type of thread that might break. You might be able to get a replacement by contacting Metabo.
All-round decent machine that has no clear strengths or weaknesses. Do make sure you get one with the improved height adjustment.
