Maybe we could finally get the Kapex 60 in the US if it goes cordless?

Corded or cordless I'd purchase one in a heartbeat for 3/4" solid wood flooring.

Quick Question,  does Festool make any Battery Powered tools that they don't sell in N.A.?

Obviously it makes bringing them to a market easier.

Can't see the instagram pics but if they make one maybe with dual battery it would be an expensive but viable buy for me.
I'm not buying another corded mitresaw, end of story.

The big Kapex's are too numb for me to cart about and although I'm on a few battery platforms j can't stand the little wheel that De-Walt has on the bottom of the blade guard cos it catches in moldings and moves the cut and Hitachi/Hikoki saws Ive seen weren't good on dust collection.

This is good news.  I don't use social media, if anybody reading this obtains any further information about this new saw please post it here.

Just what I'm after, thanks for sharing.

Which is odd, it's not like we don't use tons of rigid insulation here. My only guess is it's a tool with almost no market to the hobbyist (you build one house/shop then what?  So it would leave it to professionals, and those guys just won't care, run it thru table saw, or what ever else is handy (smash it, saw zaw).

But does show being battery tool doesn't automatically get it sent to N. America.

I can't believe that I watched that entire video.

Actually, I can believe it, but still.

Unique tools like the insulation saw just seem to make life easier; I completely understand where he's coming from on how it improves his workflow and accuracy. I wouldn't say that I suddenly want to take up insulation work for a living, but tools like that make the idea seem palatable.

looks like that tool would be around 400USD (assuming conversion and VAT removal correctly).  So not even a terribly expensive tool.

Interesting tool. I have no use for it but still interesting.

I wonder how a jigsaw version of this would perform?

I'm looking at the grip and the battery placement and the
dust collection and how it performs compared to my Carvex.

I would be interested in a cordless Kapex if it became available.

It's a table saw, do you know where your fingers are?

While the insulation saw will do ridgid foam it's main product use is wood fiber insulation. Not something we currently use in the US. There is currently only one importer in the whole country.

The saw is for basically any material used in the insulation business, and that's most of the time not wood fibre. I have never seen that material used here. What we see here mostly is mineral wool, pur, and styrofoam.

Can I get a meat cutting blade for that? Might make for an interesting Thanksgiving.

Looks like it would be really nice for mineral wool.  It's not that mineral wool is hard to cut, it just gets messy, and can be hard to get nice straight cuts.

I've built an energy efficient extension to a college that was insulated with Pavatherm wood fibre insulation.
I'm very impressed with it. Large tonge and grooved batts that were easy to use and didn't create too much dust when cut.
