I'm excited to announce the introduction of the new improved Festool ETS 125 REQ, DTS 400 REQ and RTS 400 REQ.

For a limited time, while supplies last, the ETS 125 REQ (aka PRO 5 LTD) sander will be available for only $99 + $50 voucher toward your next tool purchase and will come in a limited edition blue systainer!


What are the improvements over the current models?
  • More powerful motor (250W), a 25% increase
  • Pad protector, like the ones on the Rotex sanders
  • Long life bag for dust collection
  • Improved MMC electronics for continuous speed under load
  • Increased airflow channel on the pad to prevent 'sticking' to the work surface so the extractor can left on higher setting
  • The ETS 125 also has the same pad brake system as the ETS EC
  • Soft cover on the top for better grip
  • Easy reach switch

While it's in German, you can see some of the new features of these sanders in the video below.

The pad brake and dust bag alone is worth the price...ordered.

So is this a discount on the new model or the old model to get rid of supplies until the new models come out?

This has a new locking dust port. Will it work with the old rubber push in hose?

What is the timing on the voucher?
Do we get it when the sander ships? 
And when does it expire?

I have absolutely no need for this yet it tempts me. I should resist the temptation to invest in an entirely new size of paper (I have a DTS and ETS 150).

I saw the email and came here to see if this was worth it as I suspected it was. Bought one! What a killer deal and a sweet systainer.

I was looking to pick up the new DTS 400 but this is a nice addition. Now if Festool will just make the pads interchangeable.

Also, there was no mention of the voucher during check out process or confirmation e-mail. Shane, could you clarify please? We are all edgy here, hands shaking from excitement.  [tongue]

@RobNJ, great questions.

The sander will ship on 11/1. The voucher will expire on 12/31 of 2017.

As for the timing on the voucher, we need to get more details on that from Festool. But, I'm sure it will be timely.

Thanks Shane.  That all sounds more than fair.
Of course, I ordered before getting the answers, but the info is good to know anyway!  [big grin]

All, just a heads up that the $99 sander also includes the bayonet-style dust port to retrofit your older hose and a sample pack of Granat abrasives. Woot.

Chatted online as I was placing my order to confirm I also get two vouchers. Got informed I do, but can only use one voucher per tool order and it is not valid on accessories.

Does the voucher stack if say buying a dust collector along with a tool to receive the 10% off along with redeeming the $50 voucher?

I have 4 Festool sanders (RO 90, RO 125, ETS EC 125 & RS 2E) so I don't really need another but
this is too awesome of a deal to pass up so I ordered one too  [big grin] [big grin]
In theory, theory and reality are the same. In reality, theory and reality are different - especially in woodworking!

Yea, this seems crazy. It comes with the port to retrofit your old vac, the reusable dust bag, granat paper, systainer, and $50 voucher. The tool is pretty much free. The only other sander I have is a Rotex 125 and I've been trying to decide on a finish sander and bought this before I even got any answers. Fantastic deal.

Thanks for that Shane...nothing like throwing a little more gasoline on a raging fire. [poke]

Another question:
Can that voucher be redeemed at any dealer, or only the dealer I bought PRO 5 from?
Thanks.

Correction, dust bag is optional, sold separately.
