KSC 60 cordless sliding compound mitre saw from Festool

What do floor laying, exterior construction, timber construction and interior finishing have in common? The answer is simple: all trades need a compact saw that’s precise, reliable and, most importantly, completely flexible. With the new KSC 60 cordless sliding compound mitre saw, Festool has created a handy all-rounder, featuring Li-ion battery power and latest generation brushless motors, all of which make it a real front runner.

The brushless EC-TEC motor, combined with dual battery system, ensures maximum power that lasts the whole day. Festool continues to further add to its extensive range of cordless tools: the battery-operated KAPEX KSC 60 is as strong as an ox, yet ultra-flexible in operation thanks to mitre angles of up to 60° on both sides and a bevel angle of up to 46° – on the right-hand side – or 47° – on the left-hand side. The twin-column guide with two bearings ensures the saw blade is guided smoothly and with precision. This ensures that every cut made is perfect, free of wobbles or juddering.


The LED spotlight transfers the shadow of the saw blade onto the material, which acts as a precise cutting line, while also providing optimum scribe mark visibility. The KSC 60 is supplied with a dust collection bag, making it ideal for portable use and smaller sawing jobs.

A handy bevel is also included as standard. This makes the rapid measurement of interior and exterior angles and subsequent transfer to the saw simple and precise. The additional feet allow the KSC 60’s workbench to be raised to the exact height of the SYS 3 M 112 or SYS 1 Systainer in just a few steps. Doing so then facilitates use as a workbench in order to support long workpieces safely and securely. This level of precision is no accident, it’s a matter of certainty – every step of the way.

Brushless motor – battery power that lasts all day
When it comes to power and performance, the Kapex KSC 60 doesn’t fall short of its corded sister, the KS 60. This is down to the perfectly harmonious interplay between battery and motor. “The KSC 60 features the latest generation brushless EC-TEC motors. It’s characterised by a compact design, low weight and high efficiency,” explains Boris Seyfried, Product Manager for Saws at Festool. This, together with variable speed pre-selection, means the saw can adapt to suit the material. Combined with high-quality saw blades for wood materials, laminate or aluminium, the resultant precision is no coincidence.

The intelligent dual battery system provides greater torque and range, which allows the KSC 60 to be operated with either one or two 18V Festool battery packs, offering enough power for the entire working day. The compact design incorporating flush-mounted guide rods, ergonomically positioned carry handles and convenient transport safety device, gives the new KSC 60s unrivalled portability, making it ideal for use on construction sites.

A clever system
The whole package is neatly rounded off with system accessories perfectly matched to the KSC 60. These include saw blades for every application, which – when combined with the speed pre-selection – guarantee a perfect cutting result and sawing that adapts to suit the material. The KSC 60’s underframe combines a stand and transport frame, allowing for even easier transportation.

This takes the Kapex KSC 60 up to a working height that makes it easier on the back and can be set up quickly and easily using a cleverly designed folding mechanism. The KSC 60 is supplied with two 5.2Ah battery packs and dual charger, all in a new Systainer³. Using this, two batteries can then be charged simultaneously.
