Festool will be bringing some new tools that for the last year have only been available outside of North America on June 1st! Announcement will probably be made within the next couple of weeks.

I happen to know what tools and accessories are coming, but in the interest of not getting sideways with Festool USA, I’ll not say ‘which’ tools….but they are some that Americans have been screaming for Festool to bring to the U.S. and Canada. Think CORDLESS! New accessories too.

Keep your eyes and ears open. Game changers are almost here.

Cheers

Festool has one of their dealers to thank for the leak…

For me the only thing I am really interested in is if/when they are going to bring the brushless sanders to NA, I am planning to buy 2 more ROS later this year and as of now it will be 2 more Mirka Ceros (along with the Deros they are simply the best ROS available here) and I would like to try the ETS EC 150 but it appears likely that Mirka will continue to get that money from me.

Announcements have now gone public.

New in the USA:
BHC Hammer Drill (18V)
PDC 18/4 Drill (18V)
TSC55 – Cordless Track Saw (uses one OR two 18V Batteries)
C18 Drill – 18V C-type Drill
Festool is also bringing in the full selection of Bits for the Drills and upped the amps on the 18V bats to 15.2. A number of other accessories are also being introduced for 1 June release.

All Festool dealers are now showing pre-order options for 1 June shipping.
I already own the first three items, having purchased them in Germany while my wife was stationed there. All three are simply Flawless!

Expect reviews soon after the release.

As soon as my local store will let me pre-order of of the drills, I am in. Been waiting for it. Not that much of a secret either, I knew about new stuff coming 2 months ago, even articles online from Dec 2014 about them.

They are nat Apple, why don’t they just market the stuff and build up the pre-orders?

There is a lot of disappointment on one issue, due to many Festoolians hoping that the VAC-SYS would be released in the US. It is a fabulous bit of equipment! I own the whole system, bought in Germany while there, and run it in the States on a Step-up transformer. It has made my life SOoooooo much easier!

Hopefully, Festool can get it UL rated soon and released. There are a LOT of Americans and Canadians hoping for that to happen.
