Replacing /shortening Drills power cord. Hows it done?
« on: June 30, 2018, 06:26 PM »
I have a PROTOOL (model DRP 13.2 EQ) which has a damaged cord /lead.
I found out how to detach the cord from the drill but cant figure out how to take the end of the the cord off to get to the terminals.

Can anyone help?

Since this is a Protool/Festool PlugIT cord, you are a little stuck.
They are not designed to be opened. (As far as I know..)

You can buy new ones from Festool in 3m & 5m.

Other than that, I think you should be able to shorten it from the wall plug side and put a new wall plug on.

Hope that helps.

Or buy a new cord.  It's a Plug-It.  That means they're disposable.  And replaceable.  They're designed to be that way.
