  • Compact, lightweight design for convenient transportation
  • Intelligent details such as an angle preselection and quick-release clamp for rapid adjustment of the inclination angle
  • FastFix saw blade changing for adaptation to the working material
  • Twin-column guide for accurate cuts

Product highlights

    Minimises waste – minimises material costs. The bevel for creating angles.

  • Convenient and safe:

    Intelligent comfort functions such as an angle pre-selection button and quick-release clamp for adjustment of the inclination angle.

  • Systems get it done:

    Accurately angled work, stable support and even more precise results thanks to the system accessories.

Product details

  • Compact, lightweight, unbeatably versatile
