Festool USA presenting new track saw

Festool will debut its new TSC 55 K cordless track saw at AWFS featuring the company’s proprietary kickback stop technology.

The new saw senses the moment of kickback during a cut — which can cause the tool to lurch backward toward the operator. The kickback stop feature immediately seizes the rotation of the motor, halting the blade in the blink of an eye. After the kickback stop automatically activates, the saw is ready for use again with zero downtime, according to the company.

“The TSC 55 K builds upon the precision, speed and durability of Festool’s proven cordless track saw, released in 2015. With an eye toward exacting accuracy, our new cordless track saw promises to make precise cuts more repeatable, safer and, overall, just plain better — a foundation of innovation that our company and our brand have been built on. The TSC 55 K and its proprietary innovations clearly demonstrate our unceasing commitment to our customers,” says Rick Bush, product marketing manager for Festool.

Festool is also introducing an array of new saw blades with thinner kerfs and new teeth geometries for improved cutting performance and longer life.
