The cordless TSC 55 Plunge Cut Saw has an impressive speed of 5,200 revolutions per minute, allowing for perfect cut quality and fast working. It can operate with two 18V battery packs for maximum power or one 18V battery pack for low weight flexibility. MMC electronics provide soft start up and constant speed under load. The saw sits easily on a guide rail for perfect straight guidance and exact cuts, even on an angle. The attachable splinterguard ensures cuts are completely splinter free on both sides. Pair it with a Festool Dust Bag or Dust Extractor and dust will be removed immediately for a clear view of the cut and reduced clean up time. Cut a wide range of building materials including timber, particleboard, MDF, cement sheet products, even aluminium - quickly, accurately and without mess.


Main Applications

  • Cutting doors to length and width using the guide rail
  • Cutting full sheet materials to size
  • Cutting and processing cement sheet products
  • Trimming up to 12 mm from edges
  • Plunge cutting applications such as sink cut outs and vents in doors
Quick. Powerful. Durable

Uncompromising power is only achieved in combination with powerful lithium-ion battery packs and the Festool EC-TEC motor. The dual battery concept offers a host of combination options for even greater flexibility for maximum power or minimum weight.

Greater versatility

The ultra flat housing and repositioned extraction socket of the TSC 55 saw creates a completely flat surface, allowing you to saw along edges just 12 mm away from the wall.

Precision cuts for less rework

The TSC 55 can be fitted with a splinter guard for splinter-free cuts on both sides or a viewing window for a perfect view of the scribe mark, depending on the application.
