The new KAPEX KS 60 dispenses with everything not needed for the job – such as every unnecessary gram of weight. With impressive features such as ergonomically positioned carrying handles, cord holder and transport safety device and an extremely compact design thanks to flush-mounted guide rods, this device makes no compromises in terms of precision and versatility – with a mitre angle on both sides of up to 60 degrees and an inclination angle on both sides of up to 46 or 47 degrees. The Festool twin-column guide with two bearings ensures that the saw blade is guided reliably and smoothly. A range of other clever details such as the LED spotlight, the pull-out extension table, the additional groove function and the bevel help to make the KAPEX KS 60 a perfect combination of mobility, versatility and optimum results.

Main applications

  • Ideal for mobile use in assembly applications
  • Cutting boards and panels up to 305 x 60 mm
  • Trimming strips, profiles and square timber up to 60 mm thick
  • Precisely angled adjustment of skirting boards and cornices without calculations – in conjunction with the bevel
Unlimited mobility

With ergonomic carrying handles, cord holder and a transport safety device, in addition to an extremely compact, lightweight design thanks to flush-mounted guide rods.

Maximum precision

Dual bearings. The Festool twin-column guide guarantees smooth, reliable guidance of the saw blade and maximum precision.

Wide range of applications

Thanks to the mitre angles of up to 60 degrees on both sides. The angle can be adjusted using the snaps on the table in order to rapidly select the preset mitre angle via locking positions. All other angles are freely selectable and adjustable.

Extremely versatile

Thanks to an inclination angle on both sides of up to 47 or 46 degrees. The angle is adjusted via the highly accessible and easy to use clamp in combination with the extremely precise scale.

Also for long workpieces

The extension table, which can be pulled out separately, provides reliable and accurate support for long workpieces as well.

Clear view of the workpiece and a dust-free environment

The extraction system in combination with a Festool mobile dust extractor sucks up the chips at their source – providing a clean and healthy working environment.

Even more versatility thanks to the groove function

Rapid and precise grooving is also possible with the cutting depth limiter.

Saves time, saves errors

The SM-KS bevel makes the rapid measurement of interior and exterior angles and subsequent transfer to the saw simple and precise.

Optimum visibility of the scribe mark

The LED spotlight (included in all SET versions) projects the shadow of the saw blade onto the material, highlighting precise cutting lines.

Clever accessories

The additional feet (available as accessories) raise the KS 60 workbench to the exact height of a SYSTAINER SYS 1. This can therefore also be used as a workbench and enables long workpieces to be reliably supported.

Fast changes

The spindle stop enables the saw blade to be changed quickly and safely. The Allen key needed for this is stowed neatly in the key storage box and is always close to hand.

For left- and right-handed users

Switch and handle are in a central position so they are just as easy for right-handed and left-handed users to operate.

Always adapted to the working material

Variable speed preselection for adapting to the working material.

More mobile with the base frame

The base frame for the KS 60 is a stand and a transport frame in one – for even easier transportation of the KAPEX KS 60. It takes the KAPEX KS 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. The additional trimming attachment enables precise working with the extension arm up to a cutting length of 2.4 m. The KAPEX KS 60 is assembled on the base frame using the UG-AD-KS 60 adapter plate. This also has an integrated saw blade holder for storing an additional saw blade.

Systems get it done even better

With the right saw blades for every material. Universal saw blade, fine tooth saw blade and special saw blades for aluminium, acrylic, plastics and many other materials. We have the perfect saw blade for every material from solid wood and panel materials to building panels and plasterboard, hard and soft plastics, non-ferrous metals, Plexiglas and aluminium through to laminate and mineral materials.
