New on the market this month are two new Festool portable circular saws, HK 55 and HK 85. These demonstrate their versatility in timber construction through their suitability for use with the guide rail and cross cutting guide rail systems. With powerful high-torque motors for maximum sawing power and rapid work progress, the machines have been designed for universal use in the workshop, on the construction site and for assembly.
In keeping with the machine concept of the HKC 55 cordless portable circular saw with the new FSK cross cutting rail, introduced in August 2015, the newest products HK55 and HK 85 also impress with their extensive compatibility: All three portable circular saws can be used with the cross cutting guide rail.
The quick-release fastener allows the portable circular saw and cross cutting guide rail to be easily connected or disconnected. A particularly practical feature is the stop system with fixed positioning pin and adjustable angle stop for angled cuts of 0° to 60° in both directions. A rubber spring, which is integrated in the cross cutting guide rail, automatically brings the portable circular saws back to the starting position. This allows fast cross cutting with repeat accuracy. In combination with the Festool guide rail, it also provides safe and perfectly straight cutting of panel materials.
The new portable circular saws are available with various items included, depending on requirements. This means that the HK 55 portable circular saw is available with a Systainer and can be combined either with the matching 1400mm guide rail or with the 420mm cross cutting guide rail. The HK 85 model is supplied with parallel stop in a Systainer as standard, and can also be supplemented with a matching 1400mm guide rail or 420mm cross cutting guide rail.
