A totally new type of saw for Festool, cutting all standard materials used in timber construction up to 200mm, from wood to hard insulation materials. A great saw for timber framing, renovation, roofing and insulating. Lighter in weight and with a large depth of cut, it can go where a circular saw is unable to go. The special chainsaw blade gives an accurate precise cut especially when used with the Festool guide rail system. Optional chains are available. The chain makes a drawing cut for rapid jolt-free operation and is speed adjustable. Efficient electronics give constant power when sawing for a consistent cut. Perfect for deep mitre and compound angles, it has a swivelling range of 0-60° with cut depths of 200mm@90°, 140mm@45° and 100mm@60°. The sword approach can be tilted up to 10° allowing for an even faster drawing cut. The chain is changed using the FastFix quick change system, a wheel then tensions the blade and there is also adjustment on the chain lubrication feed. Fitted with extraction outlet and fixed 7.5m power lead.

Specialised but impressiveI got this to make some king post roof frames out of 9" x 6" Douglas Fir. The saw is great at angled and 90 degree cuts on big timber but slow to rip the timber down, although certainly no slower than a petrol chainsaw on rip cuts and and a lot more accurate! I have since ordered the dedicated rip chain and will post a review when I have had a chance to use it. The only gripe I have is the extraction isn't as good as I would have hoped from a Festool product, although most users of this product probably wouldn't care.......
