UG-Set compatibility
« on: November 21, 2022, 12:18 PM »
I am changing the way I work, going to all cordless out on site (mainly Makita as I have been using their LXT battery system for more than 12 years), but when it comes to cordless mitre saws I am seriously considering the Kapex KSC60 mitre saw. I already have a KS120, which will in future be based in the workshop on a static base, with longer extension arms and more flip stops. That should leave me with a spare UG-Set and extensions. So the question is, can my KS120 UG-Set be used or readily converted to be ysed with a KSC60? This is a serious question as these mobile bases aren't cheap and being able to re-use a £500 plus base system is quite attractive

Yes, you only need these:
The base for KS 60
New measuring tapes for the UG wings. The wings are the same, they differ on the tapes applied to the wings. (Yours probably says KS 120 on the sticker)
“The Stig” Yes, it is true, at least some part of it..

Thank you! My local Festool dealer implied that they weren't compatible and that I'd have to buy a complete set (at circa £700 or so), which to me really is a deal breaker. A UG-AD-KS 60 at about £110 plus a couple of tapes is a lot more palatable

I had the exact same question about the wings. Is this confirmed that they are the same?
