Kapex compound sliding miter saw

Innovation. Compounded.

The Kapex KS 120 was developed with one goal in mind: to be the best sliding compound miter saw, period. The KS 120 is the first miter saw with variable speed, enabling the user to match the speed of the blade with the requirements of the material for perfect cuts, every time. Finally, a sliding compound miter saw that combines a large cutting capacity with a compact lightweight design.

The innovative twin-column forward rail design gives this saw greater precision in an extremely small footprint. And Festool’s meticulous engineers designed the saw to capture 91% of the saw dust when used with a CT dust extractor (when using a 36 mm hose).

Sliding Compound Miter Saw Applications.

The KS 120 has a small footprint and compact design with a great amount of power. The power and impressive cutting depth of the KS 120 will make you think that you are working with a much larger saw. This saw is remarkable. It has the cutting capacity of a 12" unit and is capable of cutting trim molding almost 4 3/4" tall in the special cutting position, and hardwoods greater than 3" thick, smoothly and precisely.
