Overview

With unprecedented cutting capacity, a compact and lightweight design, remarkable dust collection capability and a seemingly endless list of premium features, the Kapex is the most advanced sliding compound miter saw on the market today. It weighs only 47 lbs. and features a unique rail-forward design, allowing for easy transportation and operation right up against a wall. But don't let its small footprint fool you - it has the cutting capacity to effortlessly cut trim molding almost 4-3/4" tall and hardwoods more than 3" thick. The saw blade bevels 47° to either side, and the rotary base turns 50° to the left and 60° to the right, while the convenient quick-release clamp, easy-to-read scales and a fine-inclination angle-adjustment feature make setting angles a breeze. A dual-laser marking system outlines the width of the kerf for precise cut placement. An included angle-transfer device eliminates complex calculations by copying the angle directly from the wall to the saw - plus, it stows neatly in the base. Superior electronics, variable speed capability, meticulous dust collection; the impressive list of features goes on and on. Includes the saw, base and a high-quality 10" carbide blade.

Additional features:

  • MMC electronics offer smooth start-up, safety brake, and overload protection.
  • Variable speed pre-selection capability allow you to match the RPM requirements of any material you cut.
  • Flexible and removable rubber dust hood deflects chips into directional dust port for 91% dust containment.
  • Lightweight magnesium alloy base features deep ribbing for stability and strength.
  • Designed to "drop" right into the perforated surface on all Festool MFT tables.
  • FastFix blade changing system saves you time and money.
  • Depth limiter makes it simple to cut accurate trenches.
  • Ergonomic hand grip
  • Cable holder keeps power cord out of the way
  • Transport safety device allows you to secure the saw head in the lowered position.
  • Designed for easy operation for left- or right-handed users

Barry I from Denham Springs, LA Posted May 18, 2010
I just bought this saw last week and installed 200' of 3-1/4" crown in 5 hours,this saw is fantastic.It performed the way it was meant to,and with the crown extensions it made the job fast and accurate. When I saw this saw for the first time, I went the next day and bought one.Laser worked great also! Well worth the money! I will by another one for my shop to set up permently. I am selling my older Makita LS1013's.

Alice Jean S from Montrose, CO Posted July 27, 2008
The tool was shipped quickly and I used it the first day I received it. The next day I replaced my 12 inch Ridgid saw with the Kapex. I haven't regretted that move at all. The Kapex does all it says, I love the clean cuts and double laser beams for very accurate cuts. Made a large picture frame with very tight fitting mitered corners. I recommend this tool to anyone and the price was well worth it.

Lawrence M from Normandy Beach, NJ Posted July 23, 2008
Also reporting fast product delivery. Haven't applied the Kapex to hard-time production yet; been spending a little time getting acquainted. I've already removed my old saw from my permanent shop mitre station and replaced it with this amazing tool. The accuracy seems to be as promised. The saw has a very comfortable feel. It is quieter than both my other slide compounds. Variable speed is nice, but really relegated to non-wood materials I don't usually encounter. All features feel well engineered and executed. I would recommend this saw to anyone. []a truly awesome tool.
