Festool TSC 55: The New Cordless Plunge Saw with your choice of power
Festool have manufactured a very impressive cordless plunge saw that looks to be one of the best available on the market right now. Festool say it can even match the power of their mains powered plunge saw, the highly popular TS 55.
The TSC 55 comes with, not one, but two 18V batteries so you can have a maximum power output of 36V. But the plunge saw will work with any combination of one or two 12V, 15V or 18V batteries to allow you to adjust the weight and power of it as you like.
It has a brushless EC-TEC motor as well so the power of those batteries is being used efficiently. It also has a variable speed adjustment just like the TS 55.
Festool have tried to make this cordless circular saw as much as possible like the TS 55. So fans of the corded one will like how familiar this cordless version is.
With this Festool track saw being cordless, it can’t rely on being able to connect to a vacuum for dust extraction. What they’ve put in place for this however, is quite impressive.
It does have an attachment for vacuum extraction where available but when the attachment is removed, it can be replaced with a dust bag which they say collects 90% of the dust.
The bag also rests flush with the edge of the machine which allows it to retain its ability to cut close to a wall. It is a very simple to use and effective solution.
Festool have made sure that this model is compatible with all their attachments and relevant blades. So if you already have a TS 55 and you want to buy this cordless alternative, all your blades and guide rails will be compatible.
You can also buy it in a variety of options as well. You can have it with one charger, with two chargers, with one charger and a guide rail or with two chargers and a guide rail. The purpose of having two chargers of course is so you can keep using both batteries and keep it performing at 36V.
At Kelvin Power Tools, we provide the Festool TSC 55 as part of our cordless range with all the available buying options listed above such as with the Festool guide rail and two chargers.
When you buy the TSC55, you get up to two free batteries with every additional basic power tool you buy. You can take advantage of this offer on our website by clicking here.
