I love Festool stuff, but 10-20% off isn’t enough to get me to buy a refurb. Like I don’t understand people who pay 80% of retail for used Festool stuff on eBay. I’ll just get it new.

I just went and looked and thought, I could use another miter saw. Then I saw it was still over $1,000, I don’t need one that bad when I have a 10” Dewalt that is pretty darn accurate and I payed around $130 or something like that for it at a pawn shop in like new condition. I would love to say I have a $1000 miter saw, but I took the plunge on the Festool track saw and that will probably be all I buy from them till I win the lotto next month.

Something to remember here is that the Festool warrantee on new purchases is a very good 3 year warrantee. The warrantee offered on these reconditioned tools is a 1 year warrantee.

The sale is on again right now. I placed an order for one of the CT26 dust extractor. I think it was $100 off but they charged me $35 to ship it so I’m not sure it was such a great deal they hyped it up to be. I think you need to factor in the shipping costs in deciding if it’s a good deal. Take a drill for example. If they offer 10% off on a factory reconditioned model and it’s marked downed $40, you will probably spend $20 more for shipping. So your $40 off turns into $20 off and you have a 1 year warranty instead of a 3. Not that good a deal. Check each item carefully and factor the shipping into the cost. There’s plenty of places that will sell you a new tool with free shipping. Don’t forget that you must pay sales tax on that reconditioned tool if you order it from a distributor in your state as well. You have to order the reconditioned tools through a Festool Distributor.. You give them the item number and they fill the order for the reconditioned tool for you.

The first thing that comes to mind is: If Festool is so good, why are they being reconditioned? There had to be a reason for someone to return a tool to the company. For the money they cost, I would expect them to never break.

They could just be ones that never got sold and have been sitting in stock, so they are selling off the old models, Curtis Lumber near my work does that all the time in their Festool section. I’m pretty sure no tool company has ever made a tool that didn’t break regardless of price, Festool also offers a 30 day money back guarantee if you don’t like the product so some people may not have liked them or reconsidered and sent it back.

Festool, unlike many other tool companies, allows the customer a 30 day trial period. If you don’t like their tool, you can return it for a full refund of the tool price. So now festool has a used tool they can’t sell as new – they refurbish it to make sure it operates at factory specs, then they offer sales from time to time on these tools. Makes sense to me!
