Our best plunge-cut saw is now independent.

The TSC 55. Work with precision instead of performing time-consuming rework. A powerful 5200 revolutions per minute. 2.2 mm standard saw blade for completely smooth operation. A quick-acting brake and guide wedge for integral safety. Variable speed control and angle settings for delicate working adapted to the material and precision undercuts. Dual battery system with flexible configuration options. And when combined with the guide rail, guarantees sawing perfection that leaves nothing to be desired. Except for a power socket.

  • Brushless EC-TEC motor combined with lithium-ion batteries for maximum cutting power
  • Flexible dual battery concept: Can be operated with two 18-volt battery packs (36V) for maximum power or one 18-volt battery pack for low weight
  • High-speed EC-TEC motor for perfect cutting quality and rapid working progress
  • Dust collection bag for clean, healthy working
  • New FastFix generation for even quicker and easier saw blade changes and adaptation to the working material

Product highlights

  • Achieve ideal results more quickly:

    Cordless, but works as well as a corded tool, with precision and impressive traction and endurance thanks to the combination of EC-TEC motor and dual battery system

  • Convenient and safe:

    With a quick-acting brake, spring-mounted guide wedge and MMC electronics to prevent your saw blades becoming flying saucers, providing greater safety in the workplace.

  • Systems get it done:

    Can also be combined with 15 V batteries, standard saw blades and Festool guide rails, ensuring compatibility between new and old.

Product details

  • Quick. Powerful. Durable

    Uncompromising power is only achieved in combination with powerful lithium-ion battery packs and the Festool EC-TEC motor. The dual battery concept offers a host of combination options for even greater flexibility for maximum power or minimum weight.

  • 2 x 18 V for greater endurance and range

    The dual battery system with flexible configuration options for using one (at least 15 V) or two battery packs (max. 36 V). For maximum power or minimum weight.

  • Maximum precision

    The guidance jaws on the circular saw can be adjusted on the guide rail without the need for additional tools. And the rubber lip directly on the scribe mark prevents the edges from splintering, even with angled cuts.

  • Dust-free work

    Dust collection bag for dust-free working without a mobile dust extractor.

  • Changing saw blades is now even quicker and easier

    The new FastFix generation. Standard saw blades can be used, as well as other accessories and consumables of the TS 55 R.

  • Easy to read and adjust

    The double cutting depth scale for working with and without a guide rail. With extra-large lettering and a precision adjustment option.

  • Safe sawing, precision positioning

    The spring-loaded guide wedge runs in front of the saw blade to prevent it from jamming and makes it easier to insert the blade in existing joints.

  • Precision cuts for less rework

    The TSC 55 can be fitted with a splinter guard for splinter-free cuts on both sides or a viewing window for a perfect view of the scribe mark, depending on the application.

  • Perfect view of the scribe mark and saw blade

    For perfect cut-outs, e.g. plunge cuts in kitchen worktops must be made precisely on the scribe mark. The transparent viewing window also allows a perfect view of the end markings, for example in corners.

  • Angle setting of -1 to 47°

    The angles 0° and 45° can be selected directly using the locking positions. Undercuts from -1° to 47° are also possible with the extended adjustment option.

  • Charge status is visible at all times

    Integrated LED charge indicator for both battery packs on the motor housing – no unnecessary work interruptions due to the battery being unexpectedly low in charge.

  • Full compatibility

    The 18 V Li-ion AIRSTREAM battery packs on the TSC 55 can, of course, be used in all cordless tools in the same voltage class. In other words, they can be used in all cordless drills (with the exception of CXS/TXS), the PDC cordless impact drill, the BHC cordless hammer drill, the DWC cordless drywall screwdriver, the CARVEX PSC 420 jigsaws, the HKC 55 portable circular saw, along with the SYSLITE working light and the SYSROCK construction site radio.

  • The new SCA 8 rapid chargers with AIRSTREAM technology and TCL 6

    The new Festool Li-ion 5.2 Ah battery pack with AIRSTREAM. The new AIRSTREAM technology guarantees faster re-use of battery packs and thus guarantees interruption-free work – even for energy-intensive applications such as sawing. This is because the new battery packs have an integrated cooling duct, thanks to which the cooling time and, as a result, the entire charging process can be reduced by up to 65% in combination with the new SCA 8 rapid charger. Furthermore, they are extremely robust with an integrated rubber frame to protect the workpiece and the battery pack and, thanks to the charge indicator, you can always clearly see how much charge is left in the battery.

  • More charge cycles

    The new TCL 6 and SCA 8 rapid chargers with charge indicator charge quickly and preserve the battery. In addition to their compact design, the chargers are also impressive due to their practical cord holder and simple wall mounting option. They are also extremely robust thanks to the fully encapsulated electronics. The SCA 8 rapid charger also features AIRSTREAM technology, which uses targeted cooling of the battery pack to reduce the charging process by up to 65%. An LED indicator on the device informs you of the remaining charge time in minutes and of the charging status.
