Saw like never before
The new compound mitre saw Kapex KS 60 from Festool
Festool is launching the NEW Kapex KS 60 - a mobile, compact and flexible sliding compound mitre saw in February 2017. With ergonomically placed carrying handles, a practical cord holder and a transport safety device, the new KS 60 is the perfect tool for assembly work. These benefits are combined with an extremely compact design and lightweight handling.
Thanks to the mitre angle of up to 60 degrees on both sides and an inclination angle of up to 47 degrees on the left and 46 degrees on the right, the compact sliding compound mitre saw also enables excellent cutting with maximal precision and versatility in mobile use. The saw slides forwards and backwards on the two column guides, but the columns do not extend backwards during this process. This saves space – particularly in small work areas. The new Kapex KS 60 offers numerous other clever details. These include an LED spotlight, which projects the shadow cast by the saw blade onto the point that is to be sawed on the workpiece, precisely highlighting cutting lines without distortion. Even long workpieces pose no problem for the KS 60: Long workpieces can be easily positioned and cut on the integrated pull-out extension table. With the additional feet, the KS 60 can be raised to the height of a Systainer (size: SYS 1), therefore allowing the Systainer to be used as the support surface. The speed can be quickly adjusted to the material that is being processed which will remain constant during the sawing process. The angle finder enables all of the interior and exterior angles to be precisely gauged and directly transferred 1:1 to the saw's angle setting, and thereby adjusted to the bisecting line. The spindle stop is also practical and can be used to change saw blades in an instant. Various versions of the new Kapex KS 60 will be available from February 2017.
