Once again, Festool is setting new standards for plunge-cut saws with its latest design. The new TS 60 K plunge-cut saw is safer and more versatile than ever before, featuring unique KickbackStop technology, and a greater cutting depth of 60mm.
“Our best plunge-cut saw is now even safer because our unique KickbackStop not only protects the workpiece, it even minimises the risk of injury,” explains Simon Illing, application engineer and master joiner. “Our new TS 60 K is highly precise, safer and delivers excellent results.
“In the event of a kickback, the KickbackStop is triggered by the saw blade jamming during sawing or plunge-cutting into the workpiece and stops the saw blade faster than the blink of an eye. A particularly practical feature is that once the KickbackStop has been triggered, the saw is ready for use straight away without replacements or additional costs.”
With the TS 60 K, Festool has created its most versatile plunge-cut saw yet, with a 60mm cutting depth and compact design that enables users to achieve outstanding results. It can be used to saw mitre cuts of 45° in solid panels of up to 40mm, and the guide rail can also be used.
“The entire accessory system around the TS 60 K only really demonstrates its versatility in day-to-day use,” says Simon. “What’s particularly great is that the new plunge-cut saw can be combined with all cross-cutting guide rails. This makes it incredibly easy to make reproducible, precise and clean cross cuts following marks.”
As you’d expect, Festool has considered many other details, such as easy saw blade changes, a splinter guard, an angle stop, a parallel side fence, precise depth adjustment with a double pointer and precision adjustment.
Robust and powerful
The TS 60 K’s latest-generation brushless EC-TEC motor makes the saw virtually maintenance-free and powerful. The maximum speed of 6800 revolutions per minute ensures ideal machining, an effortless feed rate and, as a result, the best cutting quality.
This means that the new plunge-cut saw is robust and, in combination with the comprehensive saw system, sophisticated down to the very last detail. It can make both precise cuts in solid wood and efficiently cut large panels on top of stacks to size with ease, reducing user fatigue.
The new TS 60 K, like all Festool tools, is completely covered by Festool SERVICE, giving customers peace of mind for their day-to-day work. This includes repair orders, warranty claims, protection against theft and spare part availability.
The new TS 60 K plunge-cut saw will be available at specialist retailers from October 2022.
