Welcome to Festool
Dear Customer, If you’re new to Festool, we would like to thank you for considering
the Festool System as a means to improve the way you work. We believe that our tools
are the most well-designed and constructed tools in the world, period. We are confident
that with the Festool System in hand you will increase your efficiency and produce
a better finished product. We’re also fairly certain that, once you have experienced
a method of work so unlike any other, you will come back for more, having realized
that your time is better spent getting work done than in trying to figure out how
to get by with your existing setup. If you haven’t done so already, talk to a friend
or colleague who’s already experienced the advantages of Festool, and they’ll tell
you the same.
For our existing customers, we would like to express our genuine thanks. Without
your loyalty and passion for the Festool System, we would still be a small niche
brand and not the tool of choice for the hundreds of thousands that we are today.
It is because of your support, in the form of wordof-mouth endorsement, that Festool
has become the ultimate solution for professionals in virtually every field where
precision and attention to detail are the standards and not the exception.
We have built our reputation by obsessing over on the details that don’t seem to
matter to other tool manufacturers. Simply put, we don’t build junk. In our opinion,
our tools do not have a premium price, they have an exceptional value. After a little
use, you will find that the gains in efficiency, coupled with the exceptional build
quality of the product, delivers value that far exceeds the difference in price.
Once you’ve rid yourself of special shop-made jigs and workaround approaches to
your tasks, we’re confident that you will find Festool to be far less expensive
by comparison. Festool tools are built to last, designed and manufactured at our
own facilities in Germany. It is our guarantee that you will not be disappointed
in the performance or durability of our products.
You’re probably also aware by now that the biggest box you’ll find us in will easily
fit in the back of your truck or van. We have great confidence in the System approach,
and believe the best way to help our customers thoroughly understand the importance
of each system component is to create effective partnerships at the dealer level.
Whether retail, online or catalog based, our dealers are comprised of knowledgeable,
Festool-trained staff who will serve as consultants, ensuring that you are armed
with the right tool and instruction to tackle your biggest process or work related
So, regardless of whether you’re about to make your first Festool purchase, or if
you’re pondering your hundredth system-component in order to address that latest
challenge, we’re pleased that you’ve considered the Festool System. The coming year
will be rich with new products and solutions, and we’re sure you’ll find one to
suit your needs.
At Festool, we design our power tools...
To solve problems. We create power tools that meet a need, streamline
a process, or improve quality and efficiency.
For the way work happens. From rough work to assembly, finishing
and storage, we keep every function of the power tool in mind.
With your comfort in mind. We limit the noise and vibration of
our power tools, and carefully balance them to feel comfortable in your hands.
To save time. Our power tools are easy to use and adjustments are
easy with tools onboard and features, such as our FastFix® blade and bit changes,
StickFix® hook and loop abrasives, and Plug-it quick change power cords.
For quality, reliability and flawless execution. We measure quality
in terms of microns and parts per million, to deliver parts that are 99.99% perfect!
For healthier environments. Integrated dust extraction is designed
into nearly every power tool we offer, keeping the work area cleaner and the air
you breathe healthier.
For portability. With our Systainer® system, you do not sacrifice
quality for mobility. Systainers organize power tools and accessories and stack
to create a mobile workshop.
To work together. Our power tools feature an integrated system
of design that allows them to work together more efficiently and effectively.
Innovation has been the foundation of Festool since its inception. In 1929, the
company introduced the first portable chain saw, which brought the mill to the forest
and transformed the logging industry. We may have changed our name a few times over
the years, but that unyielding commitment to quality, precision and exceptional
customer service have remained the same.

and enhancing safety. Through the years, we have set the standard for the industry,
