Am I the only one repulsed by the idea that I need to hurry up and buy something to beat a price increase?

Festool never has a good old fashioned, American type sale, all they ever do is raise the price.  (and why?)

Their recon 'sale', where they are basically getting rid of 5 year old inventory and returns was a joke...


No thanks

As someone that owns most of what they make and use it to make a living, the upside is that it is also an investment as long as I keep them in good shape...and I'm anally neurotic about the condition of my tools.  A whole lot of my Festools are now worth as much or more than I initially paid for them.

At the new $1040 price, I could probably sell my used DF 500 Set for the price I purchased it for 8 years ago...$825.

At the new $690 price, I could probably sell my used TS 55 and rail for the price I purchased it for 9 years ago...$525.

I want the Kapex but by the time I’m able to afford it, it will be closing in on 2k. 

Can somebody help a newbie to FESTOOL understand the price increases as it relates to these points?  Does it increase by 3% every year or by the same amount as inflation?  If inflation is low, do they increase less?  Most people I know arent getting raises which keep up with inflation ... it seems at this pace the customer base for the brand will begin shrinking??

No one outside the company knows how the company comes up with the pricie increases whereas that would generally be considered inside information which they (and any other sane company) will not share on the internet or outside their ranks.

The decision on increases might not even be made in the country that sells the product.  Nobody outside the company knows.

These price increases are getting really annoying. Festool tools are not the ultimate tools out there. Many other brands offer some better aspect. I don't know any other tool company that increases their price every years, in fact most have sales and decreases the prices when a new version comes out.  The new Dewalt 12 inches dual bevel miyet saw sells for 649$. I bought mine in 1998 which I paid close to 900$. The festool miter saw is now selling for 2000$$$!!! Ridiculous. I have few festool tools right now but not looking into buying anymore.

Their prices increase every year without exception. A few years ago when the Euro went from costing a $1.60 USD to just above $1 USD the price increase still happened. It's unfortunate because even at the exorbitant prices they should be the best and most reliable tools made and that is not the case.

I joined not to long ago, and bought a lot of stuff.
I like the system and the tools I bought.
But after checking the price difference, there was a bad taste in my mouth.
I will not be running to buy any Festool before a price increase.
And if you buy Festool instead of other tools because the value holds up, then I think you may be investing wrong.
People keep trying to come with reasons to not feel like a chump for spending hard earned cash and dumping it into this company, which I like but refuse to become a junkie.
So this happens every year?
How far will you go before saying enough.
For example- Festool track saw or makita track saw.- can the Festool track saw be 3 times more expensive? 5 times more expensive? Would you still buy Festool if it was 10 times more expensive just because it is Festool?
I buy for the system and tool specific, after that I use my head to make a proper decision on application, cost, frequency etc...
I am only a hobbyist, so take my opinion for what it is.
But there will be no running from me.
Maybe Festool should look into getting with professionals, Hobbyists, and creative people.
Seems like the other tool companies are doing it and benefiting from it.
I see loyalties shifting. That money will go somewhere.

The dust collection aspect was what swayed me to buy Festool several years ago. I thought it was pricey then. I have been watching these yearly price increases with disgust. They are pricing many of us out of their tools.

I bought my first tools back in ‘07. Midi $425 and Rotex 150 $440 if I’m remembering it correctly.

A little while ago I saw a broken midi sell on eBay for $200. It did not run and still went for decent money.

I’m glad I have almost one of everything they sell that I need but the constant price  increases across everything is getting out of hand.

Thankfully the TS75 is my last Festool.  I have everything else I need.  I can't keep paying more and more for Festool when the competition is quickly closing the performance gap and their tools are a heck of a lot cheaper.

The frustrating thing is the increases are not accompanied with an improved product.  Even Apple doesn't raise prices on existing models...they offer upgraded ones.  Most of these Festools haven't changed in years.  The guide rail deflector is going up another 4% and hasn't been changed since before the introduction of the current guide rails (which was what, 2003?).

PT Barnum was an optimist...or would he be a pessimist?  Anyway he badly underestimated the rate at which suckers are born!  The input costs of building products like these tools vary year to year, raw material costs generally fell during the period 2008-12 as the effects of the financial crisis rippled through the global economy.  As was observed by jimH2 above, if these increases were the result of economic factors the dollar cost of Festool products should have plummeted by 27% in 2014 even including the 3% increase.  So the game Festool management is playing is not pricing their goods to compensate for their costs, it is a different game altogether.

Festool's marketing strategy is to be perceived and purchased as a luxury good.  The pricing of luxury goods is largely unrelated to the costs of production, rather the high price of the product compared to comparable products is the most important factor in the marketing strategy.  When a person steps out of a Bentley, or opens the Systainer and pulls out his Festool on a worksite he is "making a statement" about himself and his status.  Of course both of these products are very well made and perform their tasks admirably, but there is no rational economic framework to justify prices that are a large multiple of non-luxury competitive products.  One requisite of luxury marketing is that sales volumes are constrained in order to support the perception of exclusivity that owners enjoy.  This actually causes the price to be higher than it otherwise would as fixed costs like R&D, tooling and plant are amortized across much smaller production volumes.

There is nothing wrong with positioning your product as a luxury good and it can be a lucrative proposition if the perception of the market supports that positioning.  There is also nothing wrong with being a consumer of luxury goods, but you are sort of missing the point when you bemoan relentless price increases that seem unrelated to costs as those price increases are the whole point of the marketing strategy!

I can appreciate everyone wanting to share their opinions about the price increase. I would recommend that someone open a thread in the Ask Festool section so they can see your feedback and have this discussion there.

In Festool's defense, there are plenty of things that go up in price all the time without any changes. Eggs, milk, lumber... all the same since the beginning of time. [tongue] When's the last time your electricity bill went down? Gasoline? The cost of business increases for a variety of reasons every year. The fact is that all of the manufacturers have price changes that just are done under the radar. Woodpeckers had a price increase, Jet/Powermatic, Veto Pro Pac, Oneida, etc. all in the past year. Even Dewalt, Makita and Milwaukee do it, just not their full catalog all at once.

Especially for folks who make their living with their tools, I personally believe Festool is worth every penny and the return on the investment will come back many times over. I think a lot of people see the price of something like the Kapex and roll their eyes. If you break it down on cost per day, even an expensive tool is peanuts per day to own over its lifetime. Through efficiency, system integration, Systainer organization, quicker/better results, and more. Plus, clients like to see you roll into their home/business looking top notch versus looking like a hack.

It's up to each person to decide whether a product offers enough value to be worth its price. I'm just offering a heads up so people can choose whether to buy before the prices go up. We all have experienced missing a better deal and kicked ourselves at some point.

Sheer madness.  No improvements, enhancements, value-added add-ons, the dollar doing well against most all European currencies (so I've been told - I am not a global currency specialist), and yet for the same old stuff, we have the opportunity to pay even more - I DON"T THINK SO!  After investing almost $20K (USD) in Festool stuff, I have now found better (equal quality, lower cost) tools and consumables, except for DE bags - so that's where my $ will go.  Greed is the only possible explanation, and I refuse to support greed.

All this may sound like I don't like my Festools - wrong, I do, and use them every time I am in my shop.  Having said that, I think it is patently absurd, given the status of the global economy to pay more today for a tool, say a TS75, than what I did 5 or so years ago when I got my TS75 - it hasn't been improved nor enhanced over these past years, and given exchange rates, it should cost no more, in USD, to manufacture it today that it did 5 years back - certainly not 4 or 5 years worth of price increases.

And back to the DE bags, if anyone knows of a non-Festool alternative, please let me know.

Didn't see Shane's post before I posted.  Well to his price increases, over the past 2 years, the price of gasoline, here in Columbus has gone from almost $3.00/gal to approx. $1.45,gal; my home utilities have decreased by as much as 20%; the price a ammunition as decreased significantly, and I could go on, but, it is what it is, and the reality is that many tangible goods and services have gone down in price.  But folks, please, don't take that as an invitation to move down here, we like things the way they are - geaux Tigers, hail State.

Shane...I assume it is OK to respond to the specifics of your post here.  Most of the commodities you cited have price histories that display both extended periods of large increases and extended periods of large decreases.  That is what happens when supply and demand are the primary drivers of price as they are with eggs, milk, lumber and gasoline.  The exact opposite of those market dynamics is a clockwork 3% increase every winter.  Luxury goods manufacturers constrain supply and set price to support the luxury goods perception.  The Kapex exception is telling...it is inconceivable to me that Kapex sales have not decreased over the past couple years in view of the motor failure publicity.  A drop in sales would usually prompt significantly reduced pricing through an actual price change or temporary rebate, but with luxury goods pricing is the primary market focus.

I’m sorry for posting this on your topic Shane, I overlooked your request.

I wasn’t aware that Mafell increased prices on all of their products every year, are you sure about that?

If I feel the need to keep this conversation going, I’ll post elsewhere or start a new topic out of respect for Shane.

Well then, I guess I do not have an excuse to not keep buying Festool or Mafell! [doh]

Ok, FOG friends, it's that time when I change this thing to red.

We're down to just 7 days left for you to get your next Festool score before prices increase.

Just a note that vacs and 6" round pad sanders are not getting increases but there are updated versions coming soon that will see increases up to $40.

Free shipping on all Festool orders. No sales tax collected on orders outside of NY/VA/KY.

The most insulting part of the price increases is that they are a rolling target. I remember 12/31 and 4/1 being other price increase days and have seen the 11 month price increase. When you offer 100+ tools and 1000's of accessories you have to be able to cover the mass of people designing and making the stuff. Like most companies of any size there are people who add very little value to the operation. We know the USD to EU conversion rate is not the issue. Our buying power went up and so did the prices.

so, are we done talking about the price increase now?

praying for more jig and workshop-build contributions the 'Recent Post' - over bluetooth hoses...

Is Toolnut/Festoolproducts a publicly traded company? Reminder to self, buy shares before next price hike.

I got my order in a mere couple hours before the prices went up thanks Shane answering a couple last minute questions yesterday.  Nothing like a price little incentive for me to make a purchase I should have made weeks ago.
