Seems like this is going astray. If anyone has KS60 info that is actually about the tool , that would be great. Otherwise ...........................

Seems like a slick little saw. I can see why they push it for the flooring trade.

Untidy, did you ever own a Kapex?

A carpenter friend of mine has the KS60, very nice saw. Very accurate and easy to work with.

I don't think the KS60 has any of the problems with the motor like the 120, certainly not the 220v volt models. But I think with this new saw Festool has made darn sure there could be no unnecessary motor failure.

He did get his saw stolen at one time when they broke into his tool storage, together with all the tools from a few other contractors that share the same space. Got a brand new saw under the Festool €100 replacement policy.

@Cheese

No - I have a Makita Compound which had served well for over ten years. But it was wearing out. After renovating and selling our city house two years ago I had some spare cash and the KS60 and a HK55 joined my FESTOOL collection. In completing our country house these combined have built additional Merbu decks, fenced in a carport with Merbu, completed a kitchen and are currently being used to install a bathroom ensuite for the upstairs guest bedroom. And there have been numerous smaller projects. The HK55 has been excellent in cutting framing timber, the KS60 for tasks such as cutting decking, flooring, architrave and skirting boards. Oh! And in making butcher block bench tops where accuracy is significant. More on the latter in a future post.

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.
