The Kapex has a small footprint with a great amount of power. This and the impressive cutting capacity of the Kapex makes people think they are working with a much larger saw. This saw has the cutting capacity of a 12" unit. And it 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.

Exceptional dust extraction.

Dust control shouldn't be an afterthought when it can save you time, increase your efficiency, improve your work, and even create happy and loyal customers. Whether you're working in the shop or on a jobsite, a good dust extraction system should start removing dust at the source, where it is being created. Clean air and fast cleanup are two things that you and your customers can appreciate. One thing is clear, regulations are moving in the direction of requiring contractors use a HEPA dust containment system. The Kapex, as is the case with all Festool power tools, is designed with dust extraction as a primary design principle. Work on-site in your customers' home without making the huge mess you'd normally make with your current tools. Your clients will thank you.
