Festool USA website / UG Cart
« on: May 24, 2017, 04:00 AM »
So I was trying to look at the UG cart on Festool USA and I was having troubles getting the page to properly load.  Every time I clicked on the link, it would loop me back around to the Kapex and/or the extension wings - never the cart itself.  I doubt this is the intended purpose.

Ultimately, my question is if there is a combo pricing on the Kapex + UG Cart + wings?  I saw last week that 10% off an MFT / CT when paired with a tool.  But I can't even find that now.   I'd hope there would be something similar for the cart - but that's probably wishful thinking....

Please advise.  Thanks.

If I understand your question correctly, I think the only discount available for a combination purchase of the Kapex, UG Cart, and both right and left wings, is to purchase all four together for $2,389.00 (as shown on Festoolproducts.com). 

Purchased separately, you would be paying $2,687.00, meaning your purchase of all four at the same time would save you $298.00.

Yes, it's $888: https://www.bobmarinosbesttools.com/kapex-portable-stand-ug-set-imperial-497351201187/p/201179/

EDIT: I didn't realize you meant both the Kapex and the cart.  The $888 is the package deal on the cart + wings.  There is no package deal on the cart + Kapex.

Don't ask about the Festool website.  Someone really screwed the pooch on that one.

There is a combo for the UG cart and extensions, but not one with the KAPEX, UG cart and extensions.

You also mentioned the CT/MFT combo. We've mostly promoted that through dealers and rarely had much public info on it. (Maybe we should add some.) With that package, if you purchase both a tool and a CT Dust Extractor or MFT, you'll save 10% on the CT or MFT.

I'm also alerting IT to the strange loop on the KAPEX accessories.

Thanks for the responses.  I am still a bit confused - why are there several different pricing references?

@McNally Family - Where did you get your numbers?  Every source I've seen via Google Shopping and local vendors, price the Kapex @ $1475 and the UG+Extensions @ $915.

Edward A Reno III - Thank you for the link!  Is the $888 the bundle pricing that is being generally referred to in this thread?  Or is there a different price point?  I assume it's one in the same because of the fixed pricing...?

My local vendors are not aware of any bundle pricing in regards to the UG cart - and will only honor it if they see it in writing from Festool.  I was simply hoping to find something to avoid a wait on the shipping.  I know that problem is vendor-related, but I'm simply looking for a resolution.

@TylerC - Might I suggest you guys add the UG cart to the "Work Stations" on the website.  Also inquire about why the MFT qualifies for a discount when the UG does not, seeing as they are both work stations.

We've never considered the UG cart to be a work station in the past, but I see your logic. Interesting suggestion. I'll ask.

Same answer, but I doubt this one will change.

The combination set with the Kapex, Cart and Wings is priced the same as purchasing both the Kapex and the Cart/Wings Set separately. Looks to me that the only discount is in getting the Cart and Wings as a set, rather than separately. The Cart & Wings Set used to be priced at $888 -- now it's up to $914.
Looks like your rabbit joint is a hare off! ;)

  Let me jump in here and say that the price of $888.00 on my website for the Imperial Kapex Stand set was incorrect and now updated to the current/correct price of $914.00. As can sometimes happen when dealing with about 1500 skews, some things get missed. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Well, at least we know the annual Festool price increase helps fund regular, gainful employment for web site managers.
