Battery saws
« on: April 29, 2017, 03:35 PM »
I'm thinking about a hck battery saw and my question is:
Does the saw use 2 batteries? The plung saw does.
If so, does it come with the 2 battery's?
Thanks Charlie

As you can see from the link the HKC uses one battery.  You have three options to buy:
Basic: saw in a sys 4.
Plus: saw, sys 4, 2 batteries and charger.
Set: saw, sys 4, 2 batteries, charger and FSK 420 guide rail.

Yes, one battery for the saw.  The trick, as ever, is getting the timing right and/or working out how to buy the tools.  There is a free battery deal on in UK at the moment so I bought a PDC set with 2 batteries, plus one free, and then an HKC basic (no battery) plus free battery - so now will have 2 tools with 4 batteries. 

However, I have heard a rumour that the reason for the apparently generous 5.2Ah battery deal is that there is a 6Ah version on the way?
