Best Features of the Festool RSC 18 Reciprocating Saw

  • Festool's first reciprocating saw!
  • Extremely powerful performance for heavy-duty sawing
    • Brushless EC-TEC motor generates an extraordinary amount of power while consuming extremely low amounts of energy
    • Switch-activated pendulum stroke ensures fast sawing progress
    • High speed up to 3000 spm
  • Extremely low vibration levels thanks to the unique anti-vibration system which reduces vibration by 40%. The full power is directed in to the blade and doesn't go in to the machine or your arms for smoother saw guidance; increased safety and comfort; and a longer service life.
  • Extremely robust: This Festool recip saw has been designed for the toughest day-to-day applications on construction sites and offers high durability, even in the heaviest applications
    • Brushless EC-TEC motor is robust and maintenance-free for long-lasting performance
    • Electronic overload protection protects the motor against damage
    • Electronic monitoring of the winding temperature protects the motor against damage
  • Excellent flexibility for a wider application range
    • 2-stage stroke rate limitation allows you to adjust the cutting speed to suit the application and material
    • Large variable speed trigger for smooth start-up and perfect control of the stroke rate
    • The blade can be installed rotated by 180° (upside down) for sawing right up to the edge, wall, ceiling, floor, etc. If flush sawing is required, flexible blades are the best option.
    • A wide range of blades are available, so you can get the right blade for every application and material
  • Comes with a dust extraction device which allows you to extract fine dust and sawing chips directly at the point of origin for a healthier and cleaner work environment
  • Great safety features to keep you protected
    • Hands-free blade changes thanks to the special chuck which automatically ejects the blade when it's opened. This keeps your fingers off of the hot blade and allows you to immediately change the blade after using the saw.
    • Quick-acting brake stops the blade in seconds
    • Locking switch prevents unintentional start-up of this Festool reciprocating saw
    • Scaffold hook prevents the saw from falling while you take a break, even at airy heights
  • The saw table can be locked in different positions which allows all parts of the blade to be used for maximum blade life
  • Integrated LED light for improved visibility

NEW & Improved Secure Deliveries

PIN code verification at your doorstep

We've improved the security of our deliveries to you with DPD's PIN code verification system. We will be using this service on most orders to ensure your parcel gets to you securely.

You will receive a PIN code via text and/or email which you must recite to the delivery driver on arrival. If someone is receiving the parcel on your behalf, remember to pass on the code to them. The driver can also resend the PIN code to the original contact on arrival if required. This service requires a mobile phone number with your order so please ensure you provide one to take advantage.


- Our deliveries are very easy to track, plus you'll get a handy 1 hour delivery window so you know when to expect your items. You'll receive a tracking number with your 'order dispatched' email.

- Your VAT invoice is always in the box with your goods.

- Your goods are always securely packaged when leaving our warehouse. We strive to ensure your goods reach you in prime condition.

Our main courier is DPD. We use DPD for the vast majority of our deliveries. APC and TNT handle other specific types of deliveries for us. In poor weather conditions our couriers may experience delays that are out of our control, however we will help you in every way possible to track delivery progress.

- Delivery to construction/job sites is possible, but done so at your own risk. Our service can deliver to an address, but we can't guarantee delivery to a specific person or location at the address. For the best outcome, please provide detailed courier instructions and a contact number that we can pass on to the courier.

- Delivery to 'safe place' is not available for most orders, someone must be present to receive your delivery. We do this to ensure our couriers deliver to the right person at the right address, to ensure your goods are not lost or stolen. Particularly as most orders are of high value.
