Whether on the roof or on firm ground, whether you are making reproducible angled cuts and guided cuts in combination with the FSK cross-cutting guide rails and the FS guide rails or precise mitre cuts – the HKC 55 cordless circular saw demonstrates what modern circular saws are capable of.

It proves this in every cut with its versatility, flexible usability and maximum precision day after day.

The Festool Bluetooth® battery packs ensure convenient use of the Festool mobile dust extractor: In combination with a Bluetooth®-compatible Festool mobile dust extractor, they ensure that the extractor starts automatically in AUTO mode when the cordless circular saw is switched on.

  • Brushless EC-TEC motor combined with lithium-ion batteries for maximum cutting power
  • In conjunction with the trimming rail, fast, accurate and mobile cross cuts
  • Safe and easy handling thanks to the cutting depth adjustment with plunge function, pendulum hood remote control and guide wedge
  • Angle adjustment with central clamping mechanism from 0 to 50°
  • Safe and perfectly straight sawing along the guide rail
  • Convenient dust extraction: The battery pack communicates via Bluetooth® with the Bluetooth® module of the CLEANTEC mobile dust extractor (can be retrofitted to the CT 26/36/48 as an accessory, directly integrated into the CTC MINI I, CTC MIDI I, CT MINI I and MIDI I cordless extractors) and starts the mobile dust extractor automatically when the HKC 55 is switched on
  • Powerful all-rounder: 5.0 Ah battery packs for endurance and power development for all applications
  • SCA 16 rapid charger with AIRSTREAM technology: Cools battery packs before and during the charging procedure, for significantly increased charging capacity and fast reuse
