Festool 160mm Cordless Circular Saw Plus 4.2Ah HKC 55 EB Plus Li 4.2Ah

From cutting rafters and beams, to ripping and trimming, or melamine shelving, plumb cuts and birdsmouth applications, this will be your new go-to saw. The combination of 18V battery and brushless EC-TEC motor ensures impressive cutting performance. It will even do intricate plunge cuts for sink cut-outs or vents, and does quick and easy cross cuts with the unique FSK cross-cutting guide rail (available in lengths 250mm, 420mm, 670mm). To enable an unrestricted view of the saw blade, the protective pendulum hood can be moved back from the front handle to release the saw blade. It is versatile all-rounder.

Easy setting of depth

Simply push the lever together and, using the easy-to-read scale, set the desired cutting depth, let go and you're all set. In combination with the plunge function, this also enables plunge cuts to be made to the preset cutting depth easily and comfortably.

Pendulum hood remote control

To enable an unrestricted view of the saw blade, the protective pendulum hood can be moved backwards from the front handle to release the saw blade. At the same time, your hands are always kept safe distance from the saw blade.

Guide wedge for safer work

The guide wedge enables unhindered, tension-free and therefore safe sawing. As it is integrated in the pendulum hood, it can be controlled flexibly using the pendulum hood remote control.

Inspection window and cut indicator

The open design and the interior inspection window provide good view of the scribe mark and saw blade. The integrated cut indicator further increases the precision level.

FastFix saw blade changing system

Fast, one-handed and tool-free. Saves time. Increases quality. Because working with the right saw blade for the material at hand becomes second nature.

Quick-release fastener

The HKC 55 can be connected to and disconnected from the cross-cutting guide rail in no time at all, depending on whether you want to saw with guide or freehand.
