High-Precision Cross Cuts With Festool’s Cordless Sliding Compound Mitre Saw KSC60 

What do floor laying, exterior construction, timber construction and interior finishing all have in common? The answer is simple: all of these trades need a compact saw that is precise, reliable and, most importantly, completely flexible.  

With its new KSC 60 cordless sliding compound mitre saw, Festool has done away with the cable, making this handy all-rounder with Li-ion battery power and the latest generation brushless motors a real front runner.  

The latest generation of brushless EC-TEC motor, combined with the dual battery system, ensures maximum power that lasts the whole day.

Never Stop Innovating 

The battery-operated KAPEX KSC 60 is as strong as an ox, yet ultra-flexible in operation thanks to its mitre angles of up to 60 degrees on both sides and the bevel angle of up to 46 degrees (on the right-hand side) or 47 degrees (on the left-hand side).  

The twin-column guide with two bearings ensures the saw blade is guided smoothly and with precision. This makes every cut perfect, without wobbles or juddering. The LED spotlight transfers the shadow of the saw blade onto the material to act as a precise cutting line, while also providing optimum visibility of the scribe mark.  

The KSC 60 is supplied ex-works with a dust collection bag, making it ideal for portable use and smaller sawing jobs. A handy bevel is also included as standard, which makes the rapid measurement of interior and exterior angles and subsequent transfer to the saw simple and precise.  

Clever detail: The additional feet allow the workbench on the KSC 60 to be raised to the exact height of the SYS 3 M 112 or SYS 1 Systainer in just a few steps. It can then be used as a workbench to support long workpieces safely and securely. This level of precision is no accident, it is a matter of certainty – every step of the way. 

Brushless motor power – battery power that lasts all day 

When it comes to power and performance, the Kapex KSC 60 does not fall short of its corded sister the KS 60 and this is down to the perfectly harmonious interplay between battery and motor.

“The KSC 60 features the latest generation of brushless EC-TEC motors. It is characterised by its compact design, low weight and high efficiency,” explains Boris Seyfried, Product Manager for saws at Festool.  

Together with the variable speed preselection, this means the saw can adapt to suit the material – rather than the other way around, which would mean a lot more work for you. Combined with the high-quality saw blades for wood materials, laminate or aluminium, the resultant precision is no coincidence.  

The intelligent dual battery system gives the saw more torque and range, which means the KSC 60 can be operated with one or two 18-volt battery packs from Festool and offers enough power for the entire working day. The compact design incorporating flush-mounted guide rods, ergonomically positioned carry handles and a convenient transport safety device means there is no limit to the new KSC 60’s portability, making it ideal for use on construction sites. 

Typically Festool: Clever as a system 

The whole package is neatly rounded off with system accessories perfectly matched to the KSC 60. These include saw blades for every application, which – when combined with the speed pre-selection – guarantee a perfect cutting result and sawing that adapts to suit the material.  

The underframe for the KSC 60 is a stand and a transport frame in one – for even easier transportation of the KAPEX KSC 60. It takes the KAPEX KSC 60 up to a working height that is easier on the back and can be set up quickly and easily using a cleverly designed folding mechanism. Work without interruption using the energy set recommended for the KSC 60: it comes with two 5.2 Ah battery packs and a dual charger in the new Systainer³. In the Systainer³, two batteries can be charged at a time.
