The Festool TSC 55K Cordless Track Saw allows you to move freely about the jobsite, shop, or anywhere you need to use its versatile and powerful cutting system. The “K” in its name refers to the saw’s protection from kickback, the most common cause of serious injuries when using a track saw. The TSC 55K has a unique kickback stop that stops the saw blade from that instant of kickback, preventing the saw from harming your workpiece and body.
The TSC has also been improved in other ways. The new model allows you to make powerful, precise cuts at up to twice the speed with an extended battery range. The brushless EC-TEC motor, combined with 2 lithium-ion batteries, possess maximum cutting power despite being off the power cord. The saw uses a new generation of thinner-kerf saw blades that have a strikingly long life and give splinter free, laser straight cuts every single use. Dual splinter guards ensure zero tear cuts no matter what the material. Although nothing compares to working in tandem with a world-class Festool dust extractor, a Festool dust collection offers a credibly low-dust mobile working option.
As before, the TSC works brilliantly with Festool's guide rails, saw table, angle stop and splinter guard. The saw’s transparent sliding viewing window and the additional markings for the starting and end point provide a good view of the saw blade.
The Note: The Kickback Stop can be deactivated manually as desired, for example, when working on uneven material without a guide track The Kickback Stop will be automatically reactivated the next time the saw is switched on for maximum user protection.
Also note: The thinner kerf TSCK blades are not compatible or interchangeable with TS 55 blades.

That's the kind of tool Festool's new TSC 55 KEB cordless track saw is...Expect furniture quality cuts thanks to the blade, the saw's snug, smooth sliding action and the track's zero clearance edge.
