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.

2 x 18 V for greater endurance and range

The dual battery system with flexible configuration options for using one (at least 15 V) or two battery packs (max. 36 V). For maximum power or minimum weight.

Maximum precision

The guidance jaws on the circular saw can be adjusted on the guide rail without the need for additional tools. And the rubber lip directly on the scribe mark prevents the edges from splintering, even with angled cuts.

Dust-free work

Dust collection bag for dust-free working without a mobile dust extractor.

Changing saw blades is now even quicker and easier

The new FastFix generation. Standard saw blades can be used, as well as other accessories and consumables of the TS 55 R.

Safe sawing, precision positioning

The spring-loaded guide wedge runs in front of the saw blade to prevent it from jamming and makes it easier to insert the blade in existing joints.

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.

Angle setting of -1 to 47°

The angles 0° and 45° can be selected directly using the locking positions. Undercuts from -1° to 47° are also possible with the extended adjustment option.

Charge status is visible at all times

Integrated LED charge indicator for both battery packs on the motor housing – no unnecessary work interruptions due to the battery being unexpectedly low in charge.

AIRSTREAM technology cools batteries for faster use and significantly increased charging capacity.
