Cordless plunge saw from Festool
The Festool TSC 55 - their most popular plunge saw - is now available in a cordless version.
The unique flexible dual-battery concept allows for two 18-volt battery packs (36V) to deliver maximum power, or one 18-volt battery pack for low weight. With both batteries it operates at the same cutting speed as its corded big brother. And just like the corded version, the cordless unit cuts to a depth of up to 55mm, allows for cutting interior doors to length using a guide rail, can perform cutting recesses in doors and kitchen worktops, plus manufacturing expansion joints in parquet flooring and false joints along with cutting chipboard and any boards to size.
The cordless model comes with a fine tooth saw blade HW W48, a splinter guard, flag window vision panel, chip collection bag and an operation tool. All Festool cordless saw sets come with 2 battery packs, a charger all packed in a unique Festool SYSTAINER SYS 5 T-LOC carry case.
The slimline housing and flat body allow for maximum flexibility and allows proximate sawing at a minimum wall distance of 12mm - a feature unique to Festool saws. Angle adjustment with undercut function from -1 to 47°. A transparent sliding viewing window provides a good view of the scribe mark and saw blade, plus a guide wedge for safer work and simple positioning in existing joints. The parallel side fence can also be used as a table extension and the parallel guide can be used on both sides of the saw. The splinter guard can be used with or without the guide rail for low splinter cuts to the right of the blade
