The new TSC 55 K provides innovation in a completely advanced cordless machine that ensures accuracy cut after cut on the jobsite or in the workshop. Set to release the new TSC 55 K on June 15, Festool USA has added even more features to this durable tool, most notably Festool’s proprietary kickback stop technology.

The TSC 55 K is engineered with innovative first-of-its-kind 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 in the blink of an eye. After the kickback stop automatically activates, the saw is ready for use again with zero downtime.

Rick Bush, product marketing manager for Festool, said, “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.”

Complementing the new TSC 55 K, 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. Taken together, the features incorporated into Festool’s new track saw combine to provide laser-straight precision and finish-cut quality in a versatile and totally mobile machine.

The TSC 55 K also delivers incredible efficiency when part of the Festool system. Pairing the new track saw with a dust collection bag or a Festool extractor with Bluetooth tool-triggered operation helps provide a virtually dust-free environment. By practically eliminating dust and ensuring consistently accurate cuts, the Festool TSC 55 K makes the jobsite much more efficient with no need for reworking and barely any cleanup.

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.

The TSC 55 K comes packaged in the all-new SYS3 M Systainer. For more information, visit festoolusa.com.
