When I was stationed in Germany, I can tell you the Festool stuff I saw there was equally as expensive. The Germans have a VAT (Value Added Tax) which is 19%. Factor in the Euro rate and there are no real values in buying stuff there. For new stuff that is. Buying used items, a consumer is not subject to the VAT.
