Machine overview

When you sign up, you can:

The Elektra Beckum PKF 255 V8 panel saw is the largest and most advanced of the PK table and panel saw series. At first glance it may seem similar to the PK 300, but the PKF 255 V8 has a more sophisticated and larger sliding table system.

This machine was also marketed under the term ‘ProfiLine’, indicating that this was a serious machine not just intended for woodworking enthusiasts, but professionals as well.

There exist two versions: a green or blue Elektra Beckum version and the blue Metabo-branded one (2006 – onwards). This machine is more based (perhaps even identical) on the Metabo TKU 1693 than the old Elektra Beckum PK series. There may be small differences though.

It comes with several useful features, like a large and well-supported sliding table and a scoring blade, making it suitable for cutting sheet goods.

Value for money




What we don't like

  • Expensive on the second-hand market
  • Relatively light for such a large machine

What we like

  • Better quality than the other PK table and panel saws
  • Advanced and well-supported sliding table
  • Panel saw size, big enough to cut large sheets
  • Scoring blade available
