Festool AIRSTREAM technology offers super fast charge times without compromising battery capacity or run times.
The HKC 55 gives you precision coupled with independence. The EC-TEC® brushless motor delivers more than enough power for the saw's 55mm maximum depth of cut. The HKC 55 is ideal for rip or cross cuts. The HKC 55 saw can make plunge cuts; simply push the lever and set the desired cutting depth using the clearly visible and easy-to-read scale, then release. You can make plunge cuts to an exact depth easily and conveniently. The angle adjustment with central clamping mechanism allows bevel cuts from 0° to 50°. The FastFix® blade change allows quick, one-handed tool-less changing of the blade, saving time and improving quality by working with a blade matched to the material. A hinged blade cover allows clear blade and cutline visibility.
The guide rail has two PTFE strips embedded into the upper surface to allow the tool to slide smoothly on the rail. On the underside of the rail two neoprene strips reduce slippage. A special rubber strip on the underside minimises splintering on the top surface of the board. This strip is cut by the saw blade on the first cut and thereafter supports the upper face of the material while it is being cut.
The AIRSTREAM batteries are compatible with all Festool 18V cordless tools. The Festool AIRSTREAM SCA 8 rapid charger is 65% faster than a conventional charger. It can charge an AIRSTREAM 18V 5.2Ah battery in just 33 minutes.
Supplied with 1,400mm FS guide rail (fitted with splinter guard, a cushion strip to grip on the underside and PTFE slide strips), 2 x 18V 5.2Ah AIRSTREAM battery packs, SCA 8 AIRSTREAM charger, 18 tooth blade and SYS 4 T-LOC SYSTAINER.
Registering the saw for an extended warranty includes a 3-year warranty on the batteries.
