| Festool: Simply the best. |
The best tools, the best accessories, the best results — it all fits together.
Festool sees each tool as an element in a greater system. You can benefit greatly from using their power tools individually, but you stand to benefit even more from their comprehensive approach to efficient solutions. When coupled with Festool’s dust extractors which are specifically designed to work in tandem with their tools, you will be absolutely amazed with the effectiveness of the dust extraction.
This is because Festool provides more than just tools — they offer integrated tool systems with a comprehensive range of well thought-out accessories. Specially developed and designed from the ground up for specific Festools, the system components provide optimum interaction and prolonged service life. They also mean less work for you, with better results.
The system concept runs through all Festool products, encompassing special-purpose tools, general-purpose tools, their dust extraction system, accessories and consumables.
Sawing, routing, planing, drilling, sanding or polishing.
Here are just three examples of what we mean:
|Festool’s Cleantec (CT) mobile dust extractors double as mobile workshop organizers. Festool’s T-Loc Systainers clamp right on top, large storage areas and spacious compartments help keep the workplace neater while making it easier to find what you need.
||Festool produces their own line of sanding pads and abrasives. This ensures that they are 100% suited to Festool sanders.
||Festool makes a full range of superior saw blades and routing bits which fit perfectly and give exceptionally long service — just like their tools.
You can do a lot with Festool. For example, you can make more money.
Festool makes a difference, not only in the shop and on the site, but also on the bottom line. Festool tools are designed for efficiency. This means that their tools offer superior workshop logistics, job times, set-up times and materials, service life, and overall return on investment.
The cost of a tool is more than just the purchase price. How fast does it get the job done? How long does the tool last? What are the workshop and on-site logistical costs? How versatile is it? How long does it take to change blades, bits and pads? How long do the consumables last, and how well do they perform? How much material can you save due to higher precision?
When you add it all up, the high quality, efficiency and long life of their tools gives them a real edge in the real world of professional use. Festool users find that they get more done faster, at higher quality, and that their tools keep on performing long after others have given up and quit.
This is partly a matter of design. Fast bit and blade changes reduce down time, low weight and exceptional controllability mean faster, untiring work and better results, and well thought-out accessories cut the time needed to do complex jobs. The precision of Festool tools often eliminates the need for time-consuming finishing.
It’s also a matter of sheer quality. Simply put, each Festool is built to take years of daily use. They’ll stay on the job — and Festool has enough confidence in it to offer a three-year warranty, longer than anyone else.
And then there are the little details, like their plug-it power cord that lets you replace the cord instantly if it gets damaged on the job. It may not happen much, but when it does you and your Festool can keep working instead of sending the tool in for repair.
Put it all together, and you’ll find Festool gives you unbeatable Return On Investment.
Here are some examples:
|The Rotex random orbit sander is three tools in one. With its different motion settings, it can act as a grinder for rapid stock removal, a coarse sander for intermediate work, and a fine sander for finishing. You can take just one tool to the job and get it done fast.
||Festool’s 3-way pendulum jigsaw blade guidance ensures high reliability and very accurate, splinter-free cuts with no sway-out. This drastically reduces the amount of finishing work needed.
Festool tools last. Depend on it.
When you’re on the job, you need tools you can depend on. And with Festool, that’s what you get.
A lot of manufacturers talk about how tough their tools are, but Festool back theirs up with a 3-year warranty. And Festool can only afford to do that because they know how low the chances are of you ever needing repairs on a Festool.
Festool tools regularly achieve top scores in comparison testing. There are many reasons for this: low vibration, good heat dissipation, the use of top-quality materials, careful attention to quality management — all add up to long, long service life. Festool builds premium tools, and they don’t take shortcuts.
Just three examples of Festool’s durability:
Anybody can build a tool. But it takes a real specialist to build a special tool.
Festool thinks in terms of specific solutions to specific problems. Their detailed knowledge of specialist trades like woodworking with cabinets and furniture, hardwood flooring, laminate flooring, solid surface fabrication and boatbuilding enables us to identify and address specific needs.
Thus, Festool can provide tools that let you do things no other tools can. Since they know your trade and its demands so well, they can develop and produce the appropriate solutions — tools that are like nothing else.
The result is a line of products which meet many of the most challenging day-to-day requirements of the tradesman. This includes a series of special solutions for sawing, planing, sanding, routing and drilling. Festool users often tell us that they would use no other tool for their jobs, and feel as if they had designed their tools just for them. And of course, that’s exactly what they did!
Festool’s specialization extends to accessories and consumables. Their accessories are purpose-designed to meet a specific need or set of needs, and their consumables are specifically adapted to provide optimum results and extended service life with their tools.
Here are some examples of special solutions to specific needs:
Festool’s TS 55 and TS 75 circular saws in combination with their guide rails let you make precise straight cuts in most materials and surfaces without clamping the rail to the workpiece. This brings in-shop precision to the job site, giving you the means to work better, faster, and more accurately.
The mobile, lightweight multifunction table (MFT) offers versatile clamping and fastening technology with angle stop for the shop and on-site. This is an ideal solution for tradesmen who need the full range of shop capabilities at any location.
You can’t do tomorrow’s work with yesterday’s tools.
Tradition is one thing. A tradition of innovation is quite another. This is the reason why Festool has been at the forefront of tool technology for over 75 years — and always with an eye on the future.
Festool is constantly developing innovative tool technologies which help users push the envelope of working technique and quality.
The progressive methods and highly developed technologies used in their tool development and production processes are just as innovative as the tools themselves. Beginning with the development process, CAD simulations help us optimize designs for end users.
Throughout Festool’s history they have produced patents, developments, technologies and tools, which have moved the industry forward. But this is not enough. They are constantly assessing what they have already accomplished, in order to turn new ideas into better, more capable, more durable, more ergonomic, safer equipment that gives you even better ROI. This is an ongoing process.
Below are just two examples of Festool innovation:
|The Duplex LS 130 EQ is the world’s first true linear sander for extended professional use. It dramatically cuts the time for sanding difficult areas such as tongue and groove joints, rebates and profiles.
||Festool’s Guide Rail is an example of how even their accessories present forward-looking solutions. It has revolutionized on-site sawing and routing, enabling perfect results on precision straight cuts as well as routing at any angle.
The tool should fit the person, not the other way around.
“Ergonomics” is the science of maximizing efficiency through maximizing ease of use. Since the whole idea of a tool is to make things easier, they have given this careful attention in designing their tools.
“Human engineering” is another term for it, and their engineers take it literally. That’s why Festool tools conform so well to the human hand and the way it moves. And that’s why a Festool is so easy to control for precision work, and so untiring to use, even towards the end of a long working day.
When you pick up a Festool today, you are benefiting from knowledge gained over generations of Festool human engineering and efficiency studies.
Here are just three examples of Festool ergonomics:
The Festool C12 cordless drill stands out with a combination of extreme compactness and extremely high power. This makes it easy to use even in very tight spaces.
|At just 3.96 lb. (1.8 kg), the Festool ETS 150 6" random orbit sander is up to a third lighter than other comparable tools, yet vibrates much less, greatly reducing work effort.
All Festool tools feature thoughtfully-located controls, and all controls are green for instant identification. No more fumbling around!
Help save the environment — buy a Festool.
Professionals understand how important it is to use materials well and avoid wastage. Like our users, Festool is very aware of the value of natural resources, and they take their share of responsibility for the environment throughout the life cycle of their products.
True craftsmen “build it once and build it right,” and so do we. The long service life of Festool tools preserves material and energy resources. By outlasting lesser tools, they prevent wastage of all of the metals, plastics, packaging and energy that go into producing a tool.
Packaging is another place where resources can be saved. They supply almost all their tools in Systainers. These environment-friendly containers combine storage, transport and shipping functions, last indefinitely, and have a host of uses around the shop. If so desired, their materials can easily be reclaimed.
It can take many years, but even Festool tools wear out eventually. They take back worn out tools free of charge, strip them down, separate the components into their different materials and recycle or reclaim them, or dispose of them in an environmentally sound manner. This naturally includes the batteries.
Some examples of Festool’s environmental commitment:
