Professional woodworkers have been relying on Festool’s best-in-class track saws to deliver unparalleled precision and repeatability of perfectly accurate cuts in a variety of materials for years. And with all new TSC 55 K, the tool makers exceeds these expectations with even more innovation in a completely advanced cordless machine that ensures unparalleled accuracy cut after cut on the jobsite or in the workshop. Set to release the new TSC 55 K on June 15, Festool USA has added even more features to this durable tool, most notably Festool’s proprietary kickback stop technology making it one of the favourites among the woodworkers.
The TSC 55 K is engineered with innovative first-of-its-kind kickback stop technology, which reduces the likelihood of kickbacks, thereby increasing user safety. Festool’s 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.
Philip Strnad, marketing director for Festool Canada, said, “High-quality cuts and safety are among the most valued features that Pros and hobbyists alike look for in a track saw. Paired with its uncompromised cordless performance, the new TSC 55 K checks all the boxes.”
Complementing the new TSC 55 K, Festool also is introducing an array of new saw blades with thinner kerfs and new teeth geometries for improved cutting performance and longer life. These custom-fit blades allow woodworkers to purposefully tailor their cutting specifications by pairing the best-suited saw blade for the new TSC 55 K’s job at hand. Taken together, the features incorporated into Festool’s new track saw combine to provide laser-straight precision and finish-cut quality in a versatile and totally mobile machine.
The TSC 55 K also delivers incredible efficiency when part of the Festool system. Pairing the new track saw with a dust collection bag or a Festool extractor with Bluetooth® tool-triggered operation helps provide a virtually dust-free environment. By practically eliminating dust and ensuring consistently accurate cuts, the Festool TSC 55 K makes the jobsite much more efficient with no need for reworking and barely any cleanup.
The new TSC 55 K is backed by Festool’s 3-year all-inclusive warranty — once the tool is registered at festoolcanada.com/service. Festool’s warranty includes protection for wear and tear — covering the tool, batteries and battery charger — making Festool’s warranty the strongest service agreement in the industry.
