  • Festool Introduces High Performance, Cordless Sanders

    Festool has just announced the introduction of three new, “hybrid” sander models, the delta-shaped DTSC 400, the 5” ETSC 125 and the rectangular RTSC 400. Each model provides the same functionality of its corded counterpart but with hybrid power options and can be used cordless or corded. The new sanders are balanced with a unique ergonomic battery for optimum performance and handling that provides up to 30 minutes of runtime at full power. Each sander has an idle engine speed from 6,000 - 10,000 RPM and includes Festool’s integrated Jetstream® dust extraction technology. Available October 2, 2017.
  • Festool Introduces New PLANEX Drywall Sander

    Festool recently announced the introduction of the PLANEX LHS-E 225 EQ, or PLANEX Easy, a light, long-reach direct drive, drywall sander with a plug-in-and-go design. PLANEX Easy is a single-piece machine which makes set-up fast and simple as well as easy to use. It has integrated dust extraction, intuitive controls, weighs in at only 8.8 lbs [4 kg] and was engineered for exceptional balance. PLANEX Easy’s EC TEC brushless motor has a motor-over-pad design and flexible head joint. Because there are no flexible drive cables or carbon brushes on the motor, PLANEX Easy requires little to no maintenance. PLANEX Easy will be available October 2, 2017.
  • With 1,500 Lumens at 5,000 K, the STL 450 Provides Clear Visibility

    Festool is introducing the STL 450 Surface Inspection Light on October 2, 2017. The STL 450 is a purpose-built inspection light with a form factor that puts light close to the surface, illuminating various surface types to let professional craftsmen see flaws and defects before their customers do. With 1,500 lumens and a color temperature of 5,000 K, the Surface Inspection Light brings extraordinary brightness and color to any surface. It was designed for use in a broad range of applications spanning wall finishes, painting, drywalling, countertop surfaces and wood finishing. The Surface Inspection Light has impact-resistant, non-marring, full-body protection and can be used as a hand-held device or mounted on a tripod.
