With its high-torque 2300 W motor, the HK 85 enables work to progress at a fast pace, even when making rip cuts. It has a cut-depth of 0-85 mm, including a plunge function and allows for miter angle adjustment up to 60°. The pendulum hood can be retracted via a lever, which offers an unobstructed view of the saw blade and makes notching simple, even in the case of miter cuts. The portable circular saw can be converted into a groove cutter for transverse and longitudinal grooves with a cutter-width of 16-25 mm and a maximum cutting depth of 35 mm.
