Festool Kapex KS 120 Review
The Festpool Kapex KS 120 is extremely powerful with a variable speed of 1,400 – 3,400 RPM. It’s so powerful in fact that you may need to slow it down a bit on thinner or weaker material. This of course, is what I like to call a quality problem.
The Festpool Kapex KS 120 is one of the most accurate miter saws on the market – in fact possibly the most accurate due to the extremely high quality build. To top off all this accuracy and power, it also runs quality relative to its power.
The KS 120 comes with a micro-adjustable bevel angle with up-front rotary knob, large bevel scale, and fine pointers to easily set precise angles. The dust extraction system gathers about 91% of dust with behind-the-cut dust hood and a pivoting 36 mm hose. It also comes with a state of the art laser system and an angle transfer device to take your precision to the level of near-perfection.
The Festpool Kapex KS 120 is indeed one of the best tools you can purchase for your projects if you have the money. Indeed, it’s biggest drawback is its $1,450 price tag. However, it comes backed by a 3 year warranty and a 30 day no-strings-attached return policy which minimizes all risk.
It holds a strong 4/5 stars on Amazon with over 100 reviews. In line with our review, customers praised the power and craftsmanship of the saw while noting that it was a bit on the pricey side.
