A revolution in table saws: Festool presents new CSC SYS 50 cordless model

Extremely compact and versatile, with a modern and sophisticated design – including digital technologies – Festool’s new CSC SYS 50 cordless table saw redefines industry standards. What’s more, the new cordless table saw is so compact that it perfectly fits into a Systainer.

This means the new CSC SYS 50 delivers the same cutting precision on construction sites as a mains-powered panel saw does in a workshop. It performs excellently in every discipline, with parallel cuts up to 280mm, cross cut width of up to 450mm and angled cuts of -2° to 47°. Precise cuts at the press of a button, compact dimensions and a state-of-the-art operating concept – these are the ingredients that makeup the new CSC SYS 50 cordless table saw.

These features make it an indispensable aid for interior finishing, as well as for carpenters and floor layers. Its centrally positioned and easy-to-read display allows you to adjust the height and angle with absolute precision, in next to no time. This allows 100% repetition accuracy, cut after cut. In practice, it’s more precise than with any yardstick. Even the most demanding cuts can be made with maximum precision owing to the robust stop system, which is made up of a parallel side fence, angle stop and sliding table.

State-of-the-art operating concept

The CSC SYS 50’s key feature is the centrally positioned display, with its non-slip dial and two buttons at the side. This allows you to effortlessly save up to four saw blade positions in just a few steps. Another clever detail is that linking the table saw to the Festool Work App enables additional saw blade positions to be saved. You can use the display to electrically adjust the height and angle at the press of a button, which is accurate to a tenth of a millimetre. Height and angle – available in millimetres and inches – are set parallax-free via the digital display and are therefore more accurate than any visual judgement. In addition, speeds appropriate to the material can be pre-selected via the digital display.

Mobile sawing applications just like in the workshop

In addition to its state-of-the-art operating concept, the new Festool CSC SYS 50 typically impresses customers with extremely precise sawing results, which are in no way inferior to a mains-powered saw when it comes to precision and quality. This is thanks to, among other features, the high-precision parallel side fence with double clamping – via a single lever. Moreover, it has a highly precise angle stop, which can be optimally aligned and centrally clamped via a groove on the slide and enables mitre angles of between -70° and +70°. The ball bearing-mounted slide can be moved completely smoothly and ensures parallel and angled cuts with maximum precision.


Another practical detail is that, in the limited range of a 35mm cutting height, it’s even possible to make angled cuts of up to -10°. This is ideal for undercutting infill panels because the field of vision for cutting the workpiece is located at the top. You can saw long workpieces exactly, safely and easily in combination with a slide, preset profile setting rail and additional underframe support. A groove can also be used in the slide to safely clamp workpieces together with the Festool FSZ clamp clips, which are available as an optional extra.

As powerful as a mains-powered tool

When it comes to power, the CSC SYS 50 is in no way inferior to a mains-powered tool. The table saw is powered by a brushless EC-TEC motor and dual battery system with two 18V battery packs – from 4.0Ah. This combination ensures a long runtime. For example, the brushless EC-TEC motor is long-lasting, maintenance-free and, on top of that, powerful. With high speeds of 6,800rpm, it enables fast sawing progress and perfect cutting results in equal measure. Even for rip cuts in solid wood, you won’t notice any difference compared with mains-powered machines. The dust collection bag allows you to work with low levels of dust, even without a mobile dust extractor. Nevertheless, the table saw is still an ideal partner for the new Festool CTC SYS, CTC MINI and MIDI cordless dust extractors.

Incredibly convenient & surprising versatile

The CSC SYS 50 cordless table saw is so compact that it fits into a Systainer. The table saw is as surprisingly versatile as it is convenient due to its size and cutting capacities, with parallel cuts up to 280mm, a cross cut width of up to 450mm, and angled cuts of 2° to 47°. The simple space wedge changes for hidden cuts and rebates is another feature that extends the saw’s range of applications. Moreover, reinstalling the spacer wedge with the guard is incredibly easy.

Precise sawing on the go

Work is made even more convenient with the UG-CSC-SYS underframe specially developed for the CSC SYS 50. You can use this folding underframe to set the cordless table saw to the ideal working height in an instant. At the same time, it also serves as the ideal solution for transport from vehicle to construction site. In addition, the hand truck’s shovel can be used as a workpiece support, allowing for the safe machining of long workpieces. The CSC SYS 50, packed in a Systainer, is compatible with bott vehicle equipment. However, even when away from the vehicle and placed in a Systainer, the CSC SYS 50 can also be transported easily in one hand.

Another practical detail is that saw blades, spacer wedge and dust collection bag are securely stowed in the Systainer’s lid. After use, you can easily place the Systainer hood over the cordless table saw, which allows for easy transport and protection. There’s even space for a preset profile setting rail and parallel side fence. In short, the CSC SYS 50 offers precise sawing on the go. Another unique aspect is the three-year warranty, which also covers battery packs and chargers. The new CSC SYS 50 cordless table saw will be available through selected retailers from March 2023.

Festool’s battery-powered universe: There’s more to it than ‘just’ power

“Battery technology and battery-powered devices are an extremely significant trend on the tools market. We’ve tailored our strategy to reflect this and are continuously expanding our portfolio accordingly. We’re not blindly pursuing a strategy of using battery technology just for the sake of it – we want to take a more purposeful approach to ascertain how battery technology might best serve the application in question. We want to optimise the results so that the products are perfect for their applications, and we want to make work easier, safer and better for tradespeople,” says Sascha Menges, CEO of Festool GmbH.

This commitment is embodied in exemplary fashion by the latest additions to the Festool 18V system, in particular, the new CSC SYS 50 cordless table saw, TSC 55 KEB plunge cut saw, the QUADRIVE TPC 18 cordless impact screwdriver, and the ExoActive exoskeleton, which will be released during the course of 2023.
