    Functions

    Standalone in every situation

    Whether on the roof or on firm ground, whether reproducible angled cuts and guided cuts in combination with the FSK cross cutting guide rails and the FS guide rails or precise mitre cuts – the HKC 55 cordless portable circular saw demonstrates what modern circular saws are capable of. It proves it in every cut with its versatility, flexible usability and maximum precision day after day.

    • 18V Li-ion battery and connectable cross cutting guide rails ensure mobility and independence
    • Brushless EC-TEC motor combined with lithium-ion batteries for max cutting power
    • In conjunction with the trimming rail, fast, accurate and mobile cross cuts
    • Safe and easy handling thanks to the cutting depth adjustment with plunge function, pendulum hood remote control and guide wedge
    • Angle adjustment with central clamping mechanism from 0 to 50°
    • Safe and perfectly straight sawing along the guide rail

    Product highlights

    • Achieve ideal results more quickly:

      Maximum cutting performance up to 55 mm and durability thanks to the combination of brushless EC-TEC motor and 5.2 Ah lithium-ion battery pack.

    • Convenient and safe:

      Safe handling – thanks to cutting depth adjustment with plunge-cut function, remote control of the suspended cover, guide wedge and angle adjustment from 0 to 50°.

    • Systems get it done:

      One for all – the 5.2 Ah lithium-ion battery packs in the HKC 55 can be used in all cordless devices in the same class. And vice versa.

    Product details

    HKC 55 Li EB-Basic
    • Concentrated power

      The combination of 18 V Li-ion AIRSTREAM battery pack and brushless EC-TEC motor with integrated motor management guarantees impressive cutting performance. Without the need for power outlets and cables.

    • For more mobility when working with timber

      The HKC 55 cordless portable circular saw with FSK cross cutting guide rail demonstrates what a modern saw can achieve on the roof.

    • HKC 55. More independence, more precision

      With the 18 V Li-ion AIRSTREAM battery pack, EC-TEC motor and FSK cross cutting guide rail, the HKC 55 cordless portable circular saw guarantees precise angled cuts that can be replicated. Practically anywhere. And in practically any situation.

    • The quick-acting closure

      Coupling the HKC 55 with the FSK cross cutting guide rail, which is available in three lengths, is incredibly easy. In no time at all, you have a mobile, easy-to-handle compound mitre saw system for precise and accurate angled cuts.

    • Stop system

      The fixed positioning bolt and the adjustable stop allow angled cuts from –60° to +60° to be made and repeated exactly. For simple work, the most common angle settings are locked into place in the rail.

    • The retraction function

      To ensure it is always ready for use, the cross cutting guide rail has an adjustable stop and an integrated rubber spring, which automatically brings the HKC 55 back to the starting position.

    • Extremely easy depth adjustment

      Simply push the lever and set the desired cutting depth using the clearly visible and easy-to-read scale, then release – and you're done. When combined with the plunge cut function, you can also make plunge cuts to the preset cutting depth easily and conveniently.

    • Pendulum hood remote control

      To enable a clear view of the saw blade, the pendulum guard can be moved backwards from the front handle. This uncovers the saw blade and ensures your hands always remain at a safe distance from the saw blade.

    • Guide wedge for a high level of safety

      The guide wedge enables unobstructed, stress-free and therefore safe sawing. As it is integrated into the spring-mounted pendulum hood, it is also possible to carry out plunge cuts in a safe and unobstructed way.

    • Viewing window and gauge marker

      The open construction and the viewing window on the inside provide a good view of the scribe mark and saw blade. The continuous gauge marker also increases precision.

    • The FastFix saw blade change

      Quick, one-handed and with no need for tools. Saves time and improves quality, because working with a material-specific saw blade goes without saying.

    • Scribe mark = cut

      Precision work, even for mitre cuts of up to 50°. When working with the HKC 55 in combination with the guide or cross cutting guide rail, the scribe line will always follow the cutting edge exactly, even when mitre cutting.

    • Clean cutting with accuracy every time, wherever you are

      Compound mitre saw system for precise and accurately angled cuts.

    • Precision guidance

      The HKC 55 demonstrates its versatility when combined with the Festool guide rail system, too. For example, insulation boards can be cut to size quickly and accurately using the FS 1400/2.

    • Make a show of power, not amp-hours

      The new Festool Li-ion 5.2 Ah battery pack with AIRSTREAM. The new AIRSTREAM technology guarantees faster re-use of battery packs and thus guarantees interruption-free work – even for energy-intensive applications such as sawing. This is because the new battery packs have an integrated cooling duct, thanks to which the cooling time and, as a result, the entire charging process can be reduced by up to 65% in combination with the new SCA 8 rapid charger. Furthermore, they are extremely robust with an integrated rubber frame to protect the workpiece and the battery pack and, thanks to the charge indicator, you can always clearly see how much charge is left in the battery.
