|Saw blades for the HK55 saws|
Not your father’s circ saw: the HK55 is an excellent demonstration of Festool’s ability to put all the best features of a tool together, then take it one step further. The corded HK has a high-torque 1,200 W motor wired to provide constant power throughout the cut, while the cordless HKC has a brushless EC-TEC motor and 18V Li-ion battery for maximum life and portability. The HK blades are thinner than the TS blades, making for quicker cuts and longer battery life. All version of the saw come with an 18 tooth general purpose blade.
The cutting depth adjustment has a plunge function, and the pendulum hood is remotely controlled, keeping both your hands far away from the spinning blade. The miter angle adjustment has a rock-solid central clamp point, allowing for accurate angles from 0 - 50°.
One Step Further: The FSK track. The FSK track snaps directly onto the base of the saw so that you can wield the entire unit as one. The FSK has a miter stop that is brutally easy to use, making it possible to cut accurate compound miters off of only one mark. The angle stops on the underside of the track butt up against the side of your lumber, providing quick, stable, and repeatable registration for angles from -45° to 60°. The need for a rafter square is completely eliminated.
After pushing through a cut on the FSK, the spring-loaded track jumps back to its original position so you’re ready to keep hogging through lumber (it looks exactly as pro as it sounds). FSK tracks are available in three sizes if you’re working with chipboard or large applications, and the HK’s are compatible with the FS tracks as well.
The corded version of the saw is available with or without a 420mm (16.5") track. The cordless version is available as basic unit sans batteries or track. A plus version with two batteries and a charger, and finally the complete unit with the 420mm (16.5") track.
The only reason we can think for getting the saw without a track is if you have a reason for a longer or short track, which we also stock. The basic sans battery version makes sense if you already have a lot of 18V cordless Festool tools, but you do lose a little of the rail savings so it might not make sense.
