Festool is adding a new cordless table saw to their lineup in 2023, the CSC SYS 50. This new table saw is quite a bit more advanced in terms of technology than the other portable table saws we’ve covered.
What makes the CSC SYS 50 so interesting? In addition to the typical precision, fit and finish to be expected from Festool, this saw integrates electronic controls for height and angle adjustments.
The digital controls allow for some efficiencies that can only be obtained by venturing into the digital realm. For example, angle and height settings can be accessed very quickly and easily, and you can save your own special measurements to return to quickly at any time. This can make jumping around between different angles and heights during cuts a quick and easy process, rather than tedious.
This saw will use a brushless motor that can run at speeds up to 6800 RPM. It’s looking to be pretty powerful for it’s size, so it should have some good cutting capability. It’s also very compact in size and can fit into a Systainer storage container. It will weight about 45 lbs without battery packs. It will use two of Festool’s 18V battery packs and will require using batteries with a minimum of 4AH rating.
