Let's start off with what's most important.


Festool offers a three year limited warranty, one of the longest in the industry. This warranty is valid on the precondition that the tool is used and operated in compliance with the Festool operating instructions. Festool warrants that the specified tool will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a term of three years from the date of purchase.

Work safe

Festool plunge cut saws have a number of safety features that make them superior to other circular saws and plunge saws.

• A riving knife helps prevent the back of the blade from creating kickback.
• Innovative limit stops can be used to keep the saw base from rising during a plunge cut, and can also be used as both beginning and ending stop guides.
•The pivoting plunge action is more natural and easier to control than the plunge action found on other plunge saws, and the blade remains covered above the cut line when performing a plunge cut.

Superior Quality.

Good design, tight tolerances, use of quality materials, and uncompromising attention to detail, result in a tool that you can enjoy for many years.

• Festool plunge cut saws are comfortable to use, and feel balanced in your hand.
• The use of soft grip materials, color coded switches and controls, and the use of tool-less adjustments combine to make the user experience much better.
• Detachable power cords can be convenient, as they allow you to disconnect from the power source at the saw instead of the receptacle.
• Antistatic hoses and attachments will reduce the amount of dust being distributed around the work area, and are considered safer by many users.
• Convenient time saving features like one handed blade changes making it easier to switch to the proper blade.

Accurate Cuts.

When used with a quality guide rail, Festool plunge saws are hard to beat for straight cuts.

• The guide strip on the edge of the rail acts as a zero clearance surface, and can be used to place the saw blade exactly on the cut line.
• Regardless of the bevel angle of the saw, the plunge saw is able to maintain an accurate cut line.
• The plunge saw will use a pivoting mechanism to ensure that the cut line stays exactly on the edge of the guide rail regardless of the saw's bevel angle setting.
• The Festool guide rails are strong, light, and easy to adjust, and come in a wide assortment of lengths with the ability to connect two or more to create custom lengths.
• Thin anti-slip bottom strips, and an easy way to clamp the guide rail down for added safety improve the cutting results significantly.
• Base plate adjustments are easy to adjust so that there is zero-play in the system, and tool-less adjustment knobs will make set-up easier.

Splinter-Free Cuts.

When working with expensive materials like cabinet grade veneered plywood or MDF, it is important to have cuts that leave splinter-free edges without burn marks to eliminate re-work or to minimize the amount of time spent cleaning up the cut line.

• Festool Plunge Saw uses easy tool-free saw to guide rail adjustments that ensure zero-play between the two.
• The plunge saw has splinter guards on both sides of the blade (one on the rail, and one on the saw.)
• MMC electronics and a variable speed setting will ensure that a consistent and correct blade speed is used for the material being cut.
• A blade to base adjustment gives you the ability to adjust the blades position relative to the base, and riving knife.

A powerful and reliable motor is important to get good results.

• Festool plunge saw offers Multiple Material Control (MMC). This feature provides variable speed selection, constant speed control, soft-start, temperature monitoring, and motor overload protection.
• The MMC enables you to select the perfect speed for the material you are cutting. Matching the speed of the blade to the material being cut will greatly improve your cutting results.

Dust Extraction.

When making any cut, a saw is going to generate a lot of sawdust. Fine dust that is ejected into the air can make you sneeze, cough, and experience other allergy-like symptoms. Experts agree that limiting our exposure to sawdust is the best protection.

• Festool dust extraction extends the life of your power tools by reducing dust-induced tool fatigue.
• It improves your accuracy by giving you a clearer view of your cut lines, and helps create a healthier environment.
• Festool dust extraction captures more than 96% of the sawdust being created and it does not hinder the user when making a cut.
• 360 degree rotating dust ports allow you to adjust the hose exit to the left or right side of the cut.
• Guide rail deflectors prevent the hose from binding on the end of the guide rail.
• Festool dust extractors use larger hoses and higher air flow (CFM) that improve dust extraction considerably.
