Festool is selling the original version. You can tell by the product image (6 LEDs visible) and $175 $131 price tag.

Anyone know, can the Pro 5 $50 coupon be used with refurbed tools?

Good for new tools only.

They used a picture of the original KAL but since they don't include a model number anywhere we can't be sure what they're selling.

SysLite for $131.75.
Or get it at Amazon for $125 brand new.  [wink]

I wonder if it will outlast all of the previous offerings.

The Amazon @$125 is the original version.

Festool must be offering the $198 KAL ll as a refurb for $131 but you'd never know it from the email or buy page.

I'm don't think this is the case.  Amazon shows the original MSRP as $175 for the KAL 100 at Hartville Hardware. 

As I understand it, Festool has been offering these refurb tools at a 25% discount so that makes it $131.25.

The new version is $198 so this would be over a 33% discount if that were the case.

The picture shown was a 1st gen KAL

2nd gen would be a KAL II.

I can confirm that it's a KAL, not a KAL II.

Unless the purpose here is to stir up customer base, and not to actually offload used stuff.

I think that's a sound bet.  There was what, 4 pages of conversation before the first tool even popped up ? 

That's just here, I haven't bothered to look at the faceyspacey and instagood outlets, nor do I listen to the tweety birds.  I'm sure those are all abuzz about the sale too. 

Guessing by the windows in which these sell out , I think there just isn't a lot of inventory period.  I can't imagine there is a lot of pent up demand for a used worklite, mini tote box, PDC or finish sander.  Domino has , and will always sell well. I'll bet many of the purchasers yesterday already have one.

I could have a different product number or something but it seemed like sysled light 1 that was up for sale today was priced higher than new on Amazon. I believe they were the same product, am i missing something here?

With this crowd I should have known to scroll up. So whats the story here? Its festool's show so they can price it at 2x the cost if they want to but I'm slightly confused, especially with the shotgun wedding style email warnings.

I was actually shocked to see the old KAL dinosaur up for sale. It was the best when it first appeared but the KAL II is brighter, has a longer runtime when using the internal battery and has better color fidelity.
So the question is, where did all of these prehistoric beasts come from as they were superseded about 3 years ago by the KAL II. Just asking the question.  [popcorn]

@duburban - It was on sale for 25% off the catalog price.

@Cheese - Keep in mind that (outside of Festool Connect) we hadn't done a recon sale in 2+ years, which was prior to KAL II.

Tyler:

Does the purchase of the refurbished tool come with the appropriate systainer and normally included accessories or is it the "bare" tool in a box? 

Thank you for your response.

Great question. The recon tools are sold with the same scope of delivery as they did when they were new. So (with a few exceptions such as the Vac Sys pump, Kapex, and the STL 450 inspection light) each recon tool will come with a Systainer. Most things like sanders, joiners, track saws, drills, etc. will come with a Systainer.

Still not getting the emails (unless there wasn't an item sold today).  Is the only fix to unsubscribe then sign up again?

There was at least one email today, mine have stopped going to my spam folder and are showing up in my normal email now, just FYI...

No [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying]

Can you believe it...my 92 year old mother just happens to call me and wants to discuss about me arranging a doctors appointment for her next week, so we talk & take care of business.

I then hang up the phone, go to the computer, see the DF 700 message that arrived just 15 minutes earlier, get into festoolrecon.com, put the DF in my cart, hit the button.............SOLD OUT. Waaaaaaaaaaahhhhh...I'm still balling like a baby and that was 2 hours ago. [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying] [crying]

Cheese,

The Domino 700 recon went in less than 6 minutes. I just happened to be at my computer when the email came through. In the time for me to pay and get one, then refresh the recon page they were gone that fast.

Thanks 🙏 for the info. I kind of had that for a suspicion because the Vecturo lasted awhile, same thing for the Syslite.
I saw the message delivered 15 minutes earlier and thought great, I’ll be able to catch this one ...Waaaaaaaaahhhhh [crying]

Bummer.  Of course we also don't know how many they had to sell.  Maybe bnaboatbuilder got the only one.  LOL.

I'll bet they only had a handfull to begin with.  Six minutes has got to be some sort of record.

Now that requires some serious trolling, or perpetually being "at-the-ready." Few people have the luxury of being able to do that at work.

At this risk of seeing a page 7 on this topic, if you need a particular tool, just go ahead buy it new so you have the 3-year warranty and less stress.  Or, just keep scanning your local/regional CL and pounce when one comes up. Otherwise, someone will have to insert the beating a dead horse icon...

Just received my PDC Kit. I'm a little disappointed. It's missing the right angle chuck and only came with one battery. If I have to buy them separate it doesn't work out to be much of a discount.
