Cordless portable circular saw PCSS 10-20V

Accurate sawing in pure form. With precision. Without a cable.

Well guided – neatly cut

A compact device with such a high sawing power – at such a low price. There must be something missing? Touché! Indeed, we have omitted a crucial feature in the PCSS 10-20V design: the connection cable! With this sawing tool, you can therefore forget about all the disadvantages of corded operation, and in return benefit from the unlimited application possibilities of a modern cordless portable circular saw.

The freedom of cordless use of the PCSS 10-20V is made possible by its 20 V Flexpower multi-device battery with a charging capacity of 2 Ah. This high-quality premium branded NMC battery can not only be flexibly combined with other cordless Trotec tools, it also always provides its full power until the end even as the charge decreases.

This is why the cordless portable circular saw PCSS 10-20V allows you to benefit from high motor power at a constantly high speed even during longer operation.

Unlimited application possibilities

The cordless portable circular saw PCSS 10-20V can be configured quickly and easily for various requirements. Without the need for additional tools, cutting depth and cutting angle can be adjusted up to max. 48 mm and 45 degrees. A quick work progress is guaranteed by the saw blade speed of the PCSS 10-20V, which remains constant even under load.

With this cordless portable circular saw you can not only flexibly saw wood and chipboards, but also plastics, lightweight construction materials or even non-ferrous metals – provided the appropriate saw blade is used. For a fast and secure exchange of the latter, the PCSS 10-20V is equipped with a practical spindle lock.

With its ergonomic design, the compact PCSS 10-20V has been developed for professional continuous operation. In addition to its perfectly positioned centre of gravity, its main handle is fitted with soft grip inlays ensuring a firm and secure grip even during longer operation. With the additional front handle the portable circular saw can also be directed safely and precisely with both hands.

Recessed notches in the base plate at 0 and 45 degrees reveal the exact cutting line and facilitate precise sawing along the mark by indicating the kerf width.

Furthermore, the integrated laser guide can switched on in addition to get a better idea of the cutting line. The laser projects a red line on the workpiece indicating the cutting direction. This facilitates the freehand operation of the saw along a straight line. It is easy to see, should you veer off course, so you can just as easily return to the cutting line. For the perfect longitudinal cut use the supplied rip fence.

Flexpower – the innovative multi-device battery system from Trotec

Even the standard scope of delivery of this power tool from Trotec already includes a powerful 20 V multi-device battery from the Trotec Flexpower portfolio with a high charging capacity of 2 Ah. You can check the current charging status via the three-stage battery level indication that is integrated in the battery housing and clearly visible at one glance.

This power pack that can be fully charged in about an hour not only enables device runtimes extended by up to 33 % – as compared to standard batteries with only 1.5 Ah – moreover, this Flexpower multi-device battery can also be flexibly combined with different Trotec tools, including i.a. the cordless rotary hammer PRDS 10‑20V, the cordless multi-function tool PMTS 10‑20V, the cordless portable circular saw PCSS 10‑20V, the cordless random orbital sander PESS 10-20V, the cordless work light PWLS 10‑20V, the cordless work LED light PWLS 15‑20V, the cordless drill driver PSCS 11‑20V, the cordless hammer drill PHDS 11‑20V, the cordless grass and shrub shears PGSS 10-20V, the Cordless compressor PCPS 11‑20V and air pump PCPS 12‑20V, the cordless pendulum action jigsaw PJSS 11‑20V, the cordless hand-held vacuum cleaner VC 10‑20V or the Cordless vacuum cleaner VC 15‑20V.

Thanks to Flexpower you can do without unnecessary batteries and chargers – and the search for a suitable battery has also come to an end. Simply change the device, not the battery. Flexpower puts a stop to the unnecessary amount of various exchangeable batteries; the combination option with an ever increasing number of tools allows you flexibility at all times so you can carry on your projects energetically!

Premium branded battery for constantly full power

Premium branded battery

By now, lithium-ion batteries are widely distributed, after all they come without memory effect and self-discharge. Plus these batteries can be disconnected from the charger and used right away without it affecting the battery’s lifetime. But “lithium ions” is a generic term used for batteries of various qualities and made of diverse electrode materials; including those with a perceptibly weakening performance once the battery charge decreases.

Lithium-ion batteries supplied by Trotec are high-quality premium branded NMC batteries with a high energy density and charging voltage lasting until the end without exceptions – guaranteed! Compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries the performance of our premium branded batteries does not decrease even as the discharge increases.

Consequently, you benefit from lasting maximum power even with an almost empty battery. During longer operation only the battery charge decreases, never their performance – that is the added value of Trotec’s premium branded batteries!

VC 15‑20V – perfect working without raising any dust

VC 15‑20V – perfect working without raising any dust

With the cordless vacuum cleaner VC 15‑20V you spare yourself the trouble of emptying the dust bag. As an extraction system for electric tools, the VC 15‑20V keeps the air and working environment clean – making you independent of free sockets and annoying extension cables. Just as many Trotec power tools, the vacuum cleaner draws its power from a lithium-ion battery (20V/2Ah) from the Flexpower multi-device battery series.

Fine dust particles that are ejected in the sanding or sawing process are sucked into the 10-litre dust collection container without any effort by the extremely manoeuvrable cordless vacuum cleaner with its practical castors. Furthermore, an integrated HEPA filter (> 89 % filter efficiency) prevents dust particles that have been sucked in from getting back into the room air and being inhaled.
