Today Festool announced the new cordless Kapex sliding compound miter saw, the KSC 60. The Kapex KCS 60 is Festool’s first cordless miter saw that runs off 2 of their 18v batteries providing 36v power as their cordless TSC55 track saw. They claim the battery life will provide all-day working power for Jobsite applications but we will test that out once it comes to market. Currently, the TSC55 offers great battery life when using the 5.2 AH or 6.2 AH batteries so we can expect similar performance.

The cordless Kapex miter saw isn’t the only new battery-powered tool by Festool, they are launching a new line of CT Vacs that will also run off the same dual 18v battery line so you can be cordless. For users who currently have Festool Vacuums, one of the biggest issues is compatibility with other tools, we provide a range of Festool 27mm hose adapters.

Our hose adapters allow you to easily connect your Festool 27mm hose to various tools such as your Dewalt table saw, Kreg K5 pocket hole jig, Makita 18v router, and more.

Release Date

The current release date is September of 2022 in the UK and EU, with no official release date set here for the United States. Festool has yet to officially announce they will be. releasing the cordless Kapex here in the US but due to the popularity of the Kapex and Festool’s push into expanding their 18v battery line of tools, it’s all but certain they will release it.

Once it does launch in September we will purchase it from Europe so we do a full review on it.
