Festool has a new cordless table saw, CSC SYS 50 EBI.
There are a lot of questions and unknowns, but one thing is certain – this isn’t your usual cordless table saw.
Thank you to Jas for the news tip!
To start off, the new Festool cordless table saw fits in a tool box – which looks like a customized Systainer – for transport and storage.
The Festool portable jobsite-type table saw has a folding table on the right side, with locking support brackets, for a more compact size.
There’s also a digital display, and – from some of the demo videos I have seen – completely motorized cutting depth and bevel angle adjustments.
That’s not all – it has a sliding table for cross-cutting.
I’m not sure how I feel about a collapsible table saw work surface, but the electronic display, motorized controls, and sliding miter table sure do seem convenient.
There’s no word as to whether the new Festool table saw features SawStop-like active injury mitigation technology. Festool’s parent company acquired SawStop in 2017. Festool has a SawStop-equipped table saw, but not a cordless model.
I asked Festool USA whether their new table saw will be launching here, and will follow up if I learn more.
