Festool USA announced that the company will be releasing a new TSC 55 K on June 15. The company shared that it has added even more features to this tool, most notably Festool’s proprietary kickback stop technology.
The TSC 55 K is engineered with kickback stop technology, which reduces the likelihood of kickbacks, thereby increasing user safety. Festool’s new saw senses the moment of kickback during a cut — which can cause the tool to lurch backward toward the operator. The kickback stop feature immediately seizes the rotation of the motor, halting the blade. After the kickback stop automatically activates, the saw is ready for use again with zero downtime.
“The TSC 55 K builds upon the precision, speed and durability of Festool’s proven cordless track saw, released in 2015. With an eye toward exacting accuracy, our new cordless track saw promises to make precise cuts more repeatable, safer and, overall, just plain better — a foundation of innovation that our company and our brand have been built on. The TSC 55 K and its proprietary innovations clearly demonstrate our unceasing commitment to our customers,” said Rick Bush, product marketing manager for Festool.
Festool also is introducing an array of new saw blades with thinner kerfs and new teeth geometries for improved cutting performance and longer life. These custom-fit blades allow woodworkers to purposefully tailor their cutting specifications by pairing the best-suited saw blade for the new TSC 55 K’s job at hand.
The new TSC 55 K is backed by Festool’s 3-year all-inclusive warranty – including protection for wear and tear – that covers the tool, batteries and battery charger. Users can register for the warranty at festoolusa.com/service.
