Festool USA and Festool Canada introduce the HK (corded) and HKC (18v cordless) Carpentry Saws with an integrated guide rail and features that Festool says will revolutionize carpentry, framing and other construction applications.
The HK/HKC allows users to make exact and repeated cuts in dimensional lumber and sheet goods anywhere the material is located versus the status quo of taking the material to the tool or to the job site sawhorse setup. The HK/HKC is equipped with plunge-cutting for cut-outs with easy depth control and release. The integrated pendulum cover with riving knife automatically retracts when combined with FSK and FS rails for a fast return to cover position. With the HK/HKC Carpentry Saws, users can make accurate and repeatable cuts with minimal equipment and in minimum time.
The new carpentry saw is available in both corded [HK] and cordless [HKC] models. The HKC is part of Festool’s Power Select platform, and can be purchased with [HKC Set or HKC Plus] or without [HKC Basic] the charger and two 18v 5.2 Ah Li batteries.
