It’s interesting to see Festool go into brand-new item groups.

Virtually 3 years earlier, Festool released their initial cordless power device combo sets, which was the very first time I considered their 18V items as part of a system, rather than a collection of individual services.

I explained Festool’s 18V influence motorist as being flawlessly routine. To put it simply, I felt it was an ordinary tool. In my opinion, a device like that exists virtually solely for Festool 18V tool customers, which isn’t a bad point, in contrast to the kind of tool that can draw even more individuals towards the brand. Might the exact same hold true here?

Does this new reciprocating saw fill an opening in Festool’s 18V cordless power tool system? Yes. Will the saw supply on Festool’s assurance of being “truly effective,” “actually quickly,” and also “for the toughest building and construction websites?” Will it be exceptional as well as competitive, or just ordinary?

This might be practical for Festool 18V cordless power device individuals– at the least. The more tools one can utilize with less types of batteries and also battery chargers, the far better– right? At best, exist any top qualities that might pull device customers towards Festool’s cordless lineup?

Can Festool’s first-ever cordless reciprocating saw sway requiring users, including existing Festool fans, provided the competitors from professional cordless power device brand names’ latest, best, and also the majority of effective saws?

Would certainly you select a Festool reciprocating saw over Dewalt FlexVolt, Milwaukee M18 Gas, Makita XGT, Hilti Nuron, Bosch Profactor, Flex, or various other brand names?
