    Nice compact size, very well thought out and a big plus is that it can do dados. Had to down size my shop when we moved from Floyd, VA to Ormond Beach, FL and started purchasing Festool to help with the down size and have been very happy with them.

      Comments about Kapex Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

      I purchased this with the mobile base and extensions. It's a very tidy package. It's easy to break down and transport. It's a lot quieter than I'd expected. Dust collection is more efficient than any other miter saw that I've used. The blade is very good, in the same class as the premium "arborial" blades. I didn't have to adjust the laser at all. Overall, I'm very pleased.

        Comments about Kapex Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

        The best saw you can get! Like all Festool products you might question the price at first until you use one of their tools. I plan to replace all of my tools that die with a Festool product. As far as CPO goes, their great. My miter saw kicked the bucket on a Wednesday and I got my new saw on Saturday.

              Comments about Kapex Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

              I use this saw in a fixed position in my home shop where I build furniture and cabinets as a hobby. By far and away the best miter saw I have ever used. Solid, durable, accurate. However, the dust collection is poor. I have several other Festool products and generally I am happy with their dust collection. Not so with this saw.

                Q:

                Does the Kapex saw have adjustability. I have two(2) other saws that don't cut to 45 degrees. Can you "fine tune" the Kapex to do this?

This warranty is valid on the pre-condition that the tool is used and operated in compliance with the Festool operating instructions. Festool warrants that the specified tool will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a term of 3 years from the date of purchase.

              Conditions of 1 + 2 warranty

              You are entitled to a free extended warranty (1 year + 2 years = 3 years) for your Festool power tool. Festool is responsible for all shipping costs during the first year of the warranty. During the second and third year of the warranty the customer is responsible for shipping the tool to Festool. Festool will pay for return shipping to the customer using UPS Ground Service. All warranty service is valid 3 years from the date of original purchase on your receipt or invoice.

              Festool makes no other warranty, express or implied, for Festool portable power tools. No agent, representative, distributor, dealer, or employee of Festool has the authority to increase or otherwise change the obligations or limitations of this warranty. The obligations of Festool in its sole discretion under this warranty shall be limited to the repair or replacement of any Festool portable power tool that is found to be defective as packaged with the User Manual.

              Excluded from the coverage under this warranty are: normal wear and tear; damages caused by misuse, abuse, or neglect; damage caused by anything other than defects in material and workmanship. This warranty does not apply to accessory items such as circular saw blades, drill bits, router bits, jigsaw blades, sanding belts, and grinding wheels.

All warranties implied by state law, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are hereby limited to the duration of three years.

              Some states in the U.S. do not allow the limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
