Compact, Mobile, Versatile

The new Kapex KS 60 is a compact, versatile and mobile sliding compound mitre saw. Compact and light (17.8kg) and 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. It makes no compromises in terms of precision and versatility of use.

Great application versatility, cutting boards and panels up to 305 x 60mm, square timber up to 60mm thick or cutting skirting boards and cornices to precise angles – quick and easy.

Thanks to the mitre angle of up to 60° degrees on both sides and an inclination angle of up to 47° on both sides, 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 inner columns, but the columns do not extend backwards during this process. This saves space – particularly in small workplaces.

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 work piece, precisely highlighting cutting lines without distortion. Even long work pieces pose no problem for the KS 60. Long work pieces 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 (SYS 1), thus allowing the Systainer to be used as the contact surface.

Thanks to the convenient pre selector, the speed can be quickly adjusted to the material that is being processed and it will remain constant during the sawing process. The bevel 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. Thanks to the centrally positioned switch and handle, the KS 60 can be just as easily operated by left handed people as it can by right handed people. Moreover, the cutting depth limiter means that wooden workpieces can be grooved quickly and precisely.

Various versions of the new Kapex KS 60 are available now while the Kapex KS 60 Workstand is available later in the year.
