Can that voucher be redeemed at any dealer, or only the dealer I bought PRO 5 from?

@Svar, if you buy it from us, you can only redeem with us. If you buy it somewhere else, you can only redeem with us.  [tongue] [poke]

Just kidding, as far as I know, no restrictions on voucher use.

Yea, this seems crazy. It comes with the port to retrofit your old vac, the reusable dust bag, granat paper, systainer, and $50 voucher.

Correction, dust bag is optional, sold separately.

That's a bummer, I use the dust bags fairly often.  It's still an awesome deal.  Well done Festool!

Website order error, but got the PayPal email that it was charged. Being looked into via the chat window. I'm sure volume on this is high!

Question:

Since you can now use this sander without having to knock the suction down on the other collectors - I assume this will work well with a CT SYS portable?

Welcome to the forum.

Festool has redesigned the pad on these new sanders to help reduce any issues from suction being too high from the vac. So, yes, you should be able to use it with the CT SYS without issues. @TylerC can confirm.

Just order this  [smile].  Have a ets 150 and ro 90 so this should fit in the middle.  With this deal I figured I could not go wrong.

Fantastic offer, $99 for the sander alone is practically giving it away, let alone some paper and a $50 voucher!

@Phil Beckley. As Festool UK's only UK representative, I draw your attention to yet another good thing for US customers (I'm assuming Festool are in some way supporting this), alongside the recently closed Carvex 420 giveaway, Festool connect, etc.

In the UK, it's really starting to feel like we're the poor relations. I know this isn't directly your department, but maybe you could have a word with the powers that be, to do something to shove a boot up the a*&e of those who can either directly engage the forum internally from Festool or encourage the UK dealers to follow the example set by some of the US dealers!

Just saw the promotion and trying to make up my mind whether I should add this to my lineup.  I have the RO150 and the  RO90 already.  What can I do with this new sander that my current ones can't?  So far the pros I come up with are: shorter stroke, smaller size overall, voucher, low price.  The cons that come to mind:  not as versatile as those I have already, big outlay for new size consumables, not as powerful.  Can someone throw in a few points I have not thought of?--part of me still wants to get this.  Thanks

I have the 150 and the 90 and three others. Even though this offer is incredible, I am going to pass because I do not use a sander that often and I do not want to stock another size of sandpaper. Sigh.

I just couldn't pass this up.  I've been waiting for the new DTS 400 to come out, so I have an immediate use for the $50 voucher.

Ever since I bought my ETS EC 150 3, I've been wondering what to do with all the 5" abrasives from my old sander. Now, at least, I'll have a use for them.  I'm also anxious to try the 2mm stroke of this new sander.

Great deal!

Thanks, Festool.

Ordered!  Not sure why I need it yet, but I'm sure I'll find a use soon!

Small nit pick, but I don't think the video is in German!

Think you're correct, sounds Dutch/Flemish to me.

Shane -

Are you guys going to have any of the new locking style tool ends for the vacuum hose for sale too ?

As has been reported here at FOG, the current ends do not play nice with the locking ports on the new sanders . [sad]

@antss, the new hose connector is included with this $99 sander. If you just want it separately, we have the bayonet-style connector available separately.

Hey @teocaf, the best part is that the sander is basically free.

Take the $99 price tag and subtract the $74 price of a Systainer 2, then subtract the price of a $44 Plug-it cord and you come up with a -$19 price tag. Who can't use an extra Systainer & extra Plug-it cord? Even if you never use the voucher...you're still ahead of the game. [popcorn] [popcorn]

Yep. The CT SYS is a good option for the PRO 5 LTD. You shouldn't have issues.

Thanks Shane.

I missed that on my first read of the description and wanted to know if I should ammend my order to add the fitting.

@Jim Metzger, tools only and they cannot be combined if you have multiple vouchers.

@yetihunter, "while supplies last". We do not know how many Festool has or how long it will be until they run out. I would assume you'd be fine to wait until Friday.

Ordered with Festoolproducts! I don't even "need" one but it is to good of a price plus the voucher!  I love my current ETS125 so if this has a little more power and the nicer grip I am sold. I will just delegate my old one to drywall work.

For those who didn't see the other thread, this is also available in Canada for $129.00.

Ditto for me!  Wait a minute- I don't plan on doing any more drywall.... I guess I have a Y connector on my vac- use two sanders at once!!   [big grin]
