You are looking for a reliable portable circular saw of robust brand quality – without too many frills, but with a great deal of power and easy handling?

Well guided – neatly cut

Portable circular saw PCSS 10-1200

In terms of ergonomics, the compact PCSS 10‑1200 was optimized for professional continuous operation, ensuring a firm and secure grip even during longer operation. With the additional front handle the portable circular saw can be directed safely and precisely with both hands. Consequently, wood materials can be sawed precisely, quickly and effortlessly using the PCSS 10-1200.

Without the need for additional tools, cutting depth and cutting angle can be adjusted up to max. 55 mm and 45 degrees. A quick work progress is guaranteed by the saw blade speed of the PCSS 10-1200, which remains constant even under load.

Recessed notches in the base plate at 0 and 45 degrees reveal the exact cutting line, which facilitates precise sawing along the mark by indicating the kerf width. For the perfect longitudinal cut use the supplied rip fence.

A convenient feature for clean working in indoor areas is the integrated connection for external dust extraction by means of a suitable vacuum cleaner. The corresponding adapter is already included in the scope of delivery. For small-scale work, it is also possible to connect an optional dust bag to the PCSS 10-1200.

PCSS 10-1200. Safe. Sawing. Simply. Good.

A safety switch prevents inadvertent start-up of the device and the high-quality aluminium pendulum guard with retracting lever provides further user protection, just to name a few safety features. Moreover, the saw is fitted with a robust riving knife preventing the saw blade from getting jammed in the workpiece and thus increasing the user's safety even more.
