The Festool name has become synonymous with innovation and exceptional quality. Today, the highly versatile and precise Festool plunge saw is a staple for trade professionals and DIY enthusiasts alike. If you've used a Festool plunge saw, you'd understand its superiority over other brands. But what makes it stand out? Let’s explore the cutting-edge technology in Festool plunge saws.
SCORING FUNCTION WITH DIAMOND SCORING BLADE
A pioneering feature in the plunge saw world, the scoring function on the Festool plunge saw uses a diamond scoring blade to lightly score the workpiece before the final cut is made.
Traditionally, scoring a workpiece before making the full-depth cut was an additional step, but Festool's integrated scoring function saves you time while significantly reducing tear-out and splintering to produce a professional, clean cut.

THE KICKBACK STOP FEATURE
Festool knows that safety is a critical component of working with any power tool. Festool’s KickbackStop feature is a significant safety advancement. This feature immediately stops the saw blade upon detecting a sudden obstruction, thus preventing kickback towards the user and reducing potential damage to the workpiece. The KickbackStop feature can also be disabled when cutting on uneven surfaces.

FASTFIX BLADE CHANGE SYSTEM
With Festool’s FastFix blade changing system, changing the blade on a plunge saw is quick, easy, and efficient. This feature reduces downtime when switching blades for different materials or projects.
BRUSHED MOTOR WITH VARIABLE SPEED CONTROL
Festool’s long-lasting brushed motor offers concentrated torque, so you can work twice as fast with maximum cutting power even in the cordless models. The variable speed control allows you to adjust the speed of the blade to match the material being cut to achieve clean and precise cuts every time.
PRECISION ADJUSTMENTS FOR BLADE DEPTH AND BEVEL CUTS
Precision is critical if one is to achieve professional results. Festool’s plunge saws offer micro-adjustable depth, and bevel settings allow you to set your saw precisely to perform repeatable, consistent, high-quality cuts. Such a high level of accuracy saves trade professionals time and reduces material wastage.
THE SPRING-LOADED SPACER WEDGE
The spacer wedge is fitted at the rear of the saw blade, following behind it as it cuts. This innovative feature keeps the cut open while cutting to prevent the material from closing up and restricting or jamming the blade. This feature extends the life of your blades, improves cut quality, and increases safety.
CONNECT WITH DUST EXTRACTORS VIA BLUETOOTH
Festool has also innovated by making smart plunge saws. To further promote a safe working environment, Festool's incredible dust extractors are connected to the plunge saw through the dust extraction port and via Bluetooth. By connecting the two devices, you can enable the dust extractor’s auto-start and the delayed shut-off when you stop cutting. This feature ensures the dust extractor captures every particle of dust and debris without manual intervention.
CORDLESS PLUNGE SAWS
One of the most convenient advancements in power tools is Festool’s cordless battery-operated technology. By eliminating the power cord, the saw becomes more manoeuvrable and usable on sites without power points. Festool’s cordless plunge saws offer robust performance and long battery life.
Power tools are constantly evolving, and Festool continues to lead the innovation race, remaining at the forefront of cutting-edge technology. Festool’s innovation has led to improved safety, precision, convenience, and user-friendly plunge saws, which transform how we work.
