Festool USA’s HK (corded) and HKC (18v cordless) carpentry saws feature an integrated guide, allowing users to make exact and repeated cuts in dimensional lumber and sheet goods anywhere the material is located. The HK/HKC is equipped with plunge-cutting for cut-outs with easy depth control and release. The integrated pendulum cover with riving knife automatically retracts when combined with FSK and FS rails for a fast return to cover position. With the HK/HKC Carpentry Saws, users can make accurate and repeatable cuts with minimal equipment and in minimum time.

Leo Zirkler, Vice President of Marketing at Festool USA says, “With the HK/HKC, we’ve taken our industry-leading tracksaw and plunge-cut technology and applied it to build a completely new kind of carpentry saw.” Zirkler continues with “We have succeeded in building a carpentry saw with miter saw precision in the size of a sidewinder.”

The new carpentry saw is available in both corded [HK] and cordless [HKC] models. The HKC is part of Festool’s Power Select platform, and can be purchased with [HKC Set or HKC Plus] or without [HKC Basic] the charger and two 18v 5.2 Ah Li batteries. HK/HKC highlights include:
