Ordered.

Now the question is, what do I do with the ETS 125 I ordered from Toolnut last week and still haven't opened up?

oh well.

This just in from another thread (a direct answer from Festool):

From Brent at Festool.

Just a couple questions:

Yes.  The tool end of the hose is the same diameter even though the hose diameter is different.

Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news but the adapter will NOT fit sleeved hoses. The sleeved hose has a plastic retaining ring that clamps the cloth sleeve to the plastic end that screws in to the hose. It's visible in the first picture. The OD of the retaining ring is 1.66". The ID of the original fitting is 1.70", while the ID for the new bayonet fitting is 1.54".

The correct fitting for the 27/22 sleeved hose is 500668 and is presently NAINA. In post #113 Shane has already said that he will notify us when and if this fitting becomes available.

https://www.festool.com/Products/Accessories/Pages/Detail.aspx?pid=500668&name=Hose-sleeves-D-27-22-DM-AS-CT

"Just when I thought I was out, they drag me back in" (Al Pacino in Godfather III)

So, based on what you just said, anyone who uses the sleeved hose should NOT order this sander, at least until it becomes certain Festool will be making the correct retrofit kit available to North America?

I have 2 sleeved hoses and I ordered the sander. [eek] I just plan on using the present sleeved hoses and then when the adapters become available, I'll order 2 of them and retrofit the sleeved hoses. Or I may get in contact with a couple of Foggers that have access to NAINA products.

I've never really had issues with the hose coming off the sanders, my problem children have always been the TS 55 and DF 500.  [smile]

It's available in the US and Canada.
$99 in the US.
$129 in Canada.
And only £280.80 ($357 US$) in the UK:

@McNally Family, your sleeved hose will work with the sander. But it will have a friction fit rather than utilizing the locking feature. If this is important to you in your buying decision, you will want to wait for the 22mm version of the locking connector to be available.

I just now fully grasped the idea that you don't need the retrofit in order to use your existing 22mm sleeved hose with the new locking dust port on the new sander (friction fit is plan B).   Thanks for your patience Shane, I told you I was slow....

Don't wait, get the Pro 5 LTD before it sells out.  The new locking feature is completely unnecessary for sanders, so your old style hose connectors will work just fine with the new sanders/tools.

@mwildt, it will not. The new sanders have a slot that is used to interface with the pad protector and connect it to the sander.

@mwildt, no.

The Rotex sanders are the only other sanders with an edge protector with the exception of these newly released new PRO 5, DTS 400 REQ and RTS 400 REQ models.

How do those $50 coupons work?  They expire on dec 2017, can I use them anywhere that sells Festool or only at the same dealer we bought this sander from?
When we make a future purchase can we use a maximum of one coupon per order or can we use 5 coupons towards the single purchase and stack them?

@ScoFF, good questions.

Vouchers are included in the sander Systainer. They expire on 12/31/2017. They can be used with any dealer (as long as it's the Tool Nut  [poke]). Seriously though, you can use it with any dealer. You cannot combine the vouchers on a single order. Nor can the voucher be used to purchase another PRO 5 sander. However, the voucher can be used in combination with a tool + vac/mft package deal.

@gruz,

see answer in quotes above.

Gary,
Sorry for the confusion.
Yes, the 500668 is to replace the reducing sleeve on the D27/22 sleeved hose and the 500669 is to replace the reducing sleeve on the standard D27 hose.
As has been stated you can still use the standard reducing sleeve that comes on the sleeved hose to connect to the new connector that is on the ETS 125.

Brent
 
This just in from another thread (a direct answer from Festool):

From Brent at Festool.

Just a couple questions:

1) Will the included retrofit kit work on the tool end of the sleeved hose (which, if I am correct,  is tapered down to 22mm on the tool end)? Yes.  The tool end of the hose is the same diameter even though the hose diameter is different.

@Brent Shively can you just clarify that statement? I understood the retrofit kits are part number 500669 which is for standard 27mm hoses. For the 27/22 tapered, sleeved hose, my understanding was that part number 500668 was required as pictured below...

All Ya'll, just want to add some information to the discussion regarding the other two new sanders, the RTS 400 REQ and the DTS 400 REQ. These sanders also include the bayonet-style connector to retrofit your existing Festool hose.

Important update from Festool about redemption of $50 vouchers

Vouchers will be included in the Systainer with the PRO 5 sander. Customers can go to www.festoolpro5.com and claim their $50 rebate once they purchase a qualifying tool. To qualify for a voucher redemption, a customer must purchase a second qualifying tool and submit the proper information via the website www.festoolpro5.com to receive the $50 reimbursement. The voucher may not be used for PRO 5 LTD sander, accessories or consumable items, and cannot be used in conjunction with ongoing promotions, closeout or discontinued items.
