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.
