Overview The HK 55 portable circular saw in combination with the FSK cross-cutting guide rail.
The new mitre-saw system for more independence combines precision and efficiency with a high level of user-friendliness, optimised ergonomics and ease of use.
Features such as the cutting depth adjustment with plunge cut function, pendulum hood remote control, guide wedge and FastFix saw blade change, for example, provide the best possible working conditions.
And the FSK cross-cutting guide rail produces precise cuts with repeat accuracy.
Main Applications Rip and cross cuts in materials up to 55 mm thick Cutting roof battens to length Sawing lining boards/shuttering to size Sawing boards to size Cutting chipboard to size Features The quick-acting closure – Coupling the HKC 55, HK 55 and HK 85 with the FSK cross cutting guide rail, which is available in three lengths, is incredibly easy.
In no time at all, you have a mobile, easy-to-handle compound mitre saw system for precise and accurately angled cuts.
Stop system – The fixed positioning bolt and the adjustable stop allow angled cuts from –60° to +60° to be made and repeated exactly.
For simple work, the most common angle settings are locked into place in the rail.
The retraction function – To ensure it is always ready for use, the cross cutting guide rail has an adjustable stop and an integrated rubber spring, which automatically brings the HK/HKC back to the starting position.
Pendulum hood remote control – To enable a clear view of the saw blade, the pendulum guard can be moved backwards from the front handle.
This uncovers the saw blade and ensures your hands always remain at a safe distance from the saw blade.
Guide wedge for a high level of safety – The guide wedge enables unobstructed, stress-free and therefore safe sawing.
As it is integrated into the spring-mounted pendulum hood, it is also possible to carry out plunge cuts in a safe and unobstructed way.
Viewing window and gauge marker – The open construction and the viewing window on the inside provide a good view of the scribe mark and saw blade.
The continuous gauge marker also increases precision.
Easy depth adjustment – Simply push the lever and set the desired cutting depth using the clearly visible and easy to read scale, then release and you’re done.
The FastFix saw blade change – Quick, one-handed and with no need for tools.
Saves time and improves quality, because working with a material-specific saw blade goes without saying.
Scribe mark = cut – Precision work even for mitre cuts of up to 50° (HKC 55, HK 55) and 60° (HK 85).
When sawing in combination with the guide or cross cutting guide rail, the scribe line will always follow the cutting edge exactly, even when mitre cutting.
Precision guidance – The HK 55 demonstrates its versatility when combined with the Festool guide rail system, too.
CLEANTEC Connection System – Integrated bayonet fitting as the connecting element between the extractor and the tool.
Cross Cut Rails – Cross cutting system which joins power tool and cross cut rail firmly together for repeat cuts at precise angles.
FastFix – Makes changing accessories or consumables for routing, sawing, planing, sanding, drilling and screwdriving tools easier.
Guide System – Patented guide system for safe guidance of saws and routers.
MMC Electronics – Multi Material Control power electronics with adjustable constant speed and temperature monitoring for work with all types of materials.
Plug-it – Removable, replaceable power cable with safety lock for fast switchover.
Plus Systainer – Plus versions of power tools come in systainer storage containers.
Quick Acting Brake – For safe work when planing, sawing and routing.
