The Festool TSC 55K 18V 160mm Cordless Plunge Saw

Our TSC 55 masterpiece - decisively improved.

Festool plunge-cut saws have always stood out with their absolute precision cuts, maximum power and extreme durability.

With the new TSC 55K, the reliability and cutting quality remain unchanged but the working speed is unprecedented.  Now, the new TS 55K can saw up to twice as fast, incorporating a reduced cutting width, new teeth shapes and new carbide saw teeth, the new saw blades, which are perfectly designed for our plunge-cut saws, ensure a high degree of cutting quality and extended service life. All this with no sacrifice to consistent cutting quality.

No longer the underpowered substitute for a corded saw, the TSC 55K now performs as well as a comparative corded saw thanks to a combination of the latest generation of brushless EC-TEC motor technology and the dual battery system (2 x 18 V) which makes the TSC 55K as impressively powerful as a mains-powered tool.

The TSC 55K now also features a unique kickback stop technology. Kickback is one of the common causes of serious injuries when using a plunge-cut saw. The kickback stop halts the saw blade in the blink of an eye, not only protecting your workpiece but also minimising the risk of injury to your hands.

Our new generation of saw blades and the concentrated torque of our cordless plunge-cut saws allow users to make powerful, precise cuts at up to twice the speed with an extended battery range, for maximum cutting performance and perfect cutting quality. For more information on our new 160mm saw blades, see this guide.

As always, this saw comes with variable speed control and angle settings allow for delicate working adapted to the material and precision undercuts.

Saw up to twice as fast – that saves time.

  • Work up to twice as fast – with consistently perfect cutting quality. Thanks to reduced cutting width and new toothing shapes.
  • Low costs due to longer service life. Thanks to special geometry and high-quality carbide saw teeth.
  • You can always rely on a perfect cut. Completely smooth-running and splinter-free cutting edges.
  • Work even healthier. The reduced cutting width and thus less material chipping ensure lower dust levels.
