Exciting new tools and accessories coming from Festool. Pre-order now from The Tool Nut for April 2nd shipment. We do not charge your credit card until the item(s) ship and you can cancel at any time. Let me know if you have any questions.





New! Bluetooth Remote Control Set (202097)

The Festool Bluetooth remote control is the newest must-have accessory for your dust extractor. Simply push the button on the remote to turn your vac on and off remotely. Whether you're using a cordless tool or using your vac for clean up tasks, the Bluetooth remote control is the perfect accessory. Additionally, the new Festool Bluetooth batteries (sold separately) will pair with the remote control module to turn the vac on automatically when using your Festool cordless tools. Compatible with Festool CT 26, CT 36, CT 36 AutoClean (AC) and CT 48 dust extractors. Product No. 202097, $80.00.






New! Dust Extractor Hoses w/ Braided Sleeve

Festool has updated its dust extractor hoses with a new exterior braided sleeve to prevent snagging and to protect the hose. The new hoses feature a more flexible material and a conical design to improve air flow. Also, the tool end of the hose can be connected to the vac end of the hose securely for storage and transport, preventing dust from spilling out.

Updated Festool dust extractors and cleaning sets can be pre-ordered and will begin shipping with the new braided sleeve hoses beginning April 2018.






New! GRANAT NET Abrasives

The new Granat Net abrasive is the perfect solution for sanding materials that produce a large amount of dust. The open net structure enables dust extraction across the entire surface — for working cleanly, a high material removal capacity, and a long service life of the abrasive. Granat Net is available in five different formats that cover a wide range of different applications.

Important: When using Granat Net abrasives, Festool recommends the optional protection pad for your sander to prevent premature wear for the hook and loop on the pad.






New! DOMINO Connectors for Domino DF 500

The new DOMINO connectors make knock-down joinery simple and stable. Quickly and easily assemble, separate, and reassemble your work for increased flexibility across a wide range of applications – from corner panel joints to center panel joints to joints between a series of holes. For increased stability, speed, and flexibility.

For the best value, purchase the Domino DF 500 Connector Systainer Set with everything you need to get started!
Product No. 203170, $375.00.






New! Diamond Blade for TS 55 / TSC 55 (202958)

Festool's diamond saw blade cuts all cement-bonded and gypsum-bonded chipboard and fiberboard quickly and with superior performance. It is the ideal solution for precise, efficient work when used together with Festool's TS 55 R and TSC 55 track saws. Product No. 202958, $145.00.






New vacs will begin shipping on 3/1.





With the optional Bluetooth module, operate your vac via the remote control on the suction hose and start up automatically when Festool cordless tools with Bluetooth battery packs are switched on. Applies to CT 26/36/48 only.
The new suction hose is smooth and flexible – with a smooth exterior for perfect sliding over surfaces, a longer service life, and greater suction power. The new CLEANTEC extraction sleeve ensures a secure fit on the tool.
Simple transportation, better organization and endless flexibility. The SYS-Dock with TLOC for the safe connection of  your Systainer, Sortainer and SYS-ToolBox units. Also backward  compatible with Classic Systainers.
The cable can be wound up quickly and neatly thanks to the new cable holder. And thanks to the folding mechanism, it can be easily removed from the holder without difficult unwinding. Applies to CT 26/36/48 models only.






New! MX 1200 EF Mixer (575213)

Maximize comfort and control when doing the dirty work of mixing and stirring. With the MX 1200 and Ergofix system the machine adjusts to the way you work with tool-free height adjustment. Reduce splash-ups with the 1200 watt (10 amp) powerful soft-start motor featuring in-trigger speed control as well as variable speed dial. Changing out stirring rods is fast and simple with the Ergofix adapter that provides tool-free changes. Product No. 575213, $390.00.






New! Multi-Jetstream 2 Pads & Abrasives for 6" Sanders

Multi-Jetstream 2 is defined by the unique interaction between intake air and exhaust air – with optimum dust extraction right up to the edge. The result is virtually 100% dust extraction for a consistently high material removal rate, top surface quality, and a healthy working environment. Multi-Jetstream 2 pads and abrasives are forward and backward compatible with previous verions of pads and abrasives. Only available for Festool 6" round pad sanders.

Updated Festool 6" sanders can be pre-ordered and will begin shipping with the new Multi-Jetstream 2 pads beginning April 2018.

Shop now for Multi-Jetstream 2 abrasives for your sander.

Since some of these items are a pre-order from Festool, do you know if the prices will increase after the pre-order is over?  I'm mostly asking for the Bluetooth remote.  I would hate to see the price go up if I decide not to buy right now.

@beewerks, great question.

The new items are excluded from the upcoming 3/1 price increase. The price shown is, as far as I know, the price for the rest of 2018.

What am I missing here?  I don't see how the Bluetooth remote would be compatible with my existing CT26 without some additional accessory or modification.

@Wooden Skye, the Bluetooth remote SET comes with a module that installs in your vac. Super easy to install, just two screws. That enables the Bluetooth capability.

Product No. 202097, $80

Check out this video that shows installation.

Does the new CT-26E work with CT-26 bags, the CT-26 handle and WorkCenter?

@neilc, this is a facelift or refresh. Festool hasn't indicated any change in compatibility with existing accessories. @TylerC can confirm 100%.

Adding some videos to show the new wares.











Sorry that the Domino connector video is in German, I don't think an English version is available yet. But you can get the point despite the German.

@mike_aa, the module for the Bluetooth plugs into an auxiliary port on the vac that doesn't exist on the MINI, MIDI or CT SYS.  [sad]

Is the primary difference between existing vacs and the 2018 version the new hose, with secondary updates of the hose garage and cord wrap?  Curious if there's a change in CFM for any of the models.

One more question (I'm guessing I know the answer to this one but want to verify):  I'm assuming the 10% discount still applies if you buy a tool with it?

Regards,
Gerald

@Gerald_D, good questions. Yes, you nailed the updates to the vacs, no changes to specifications regarding suction.

Yes, the 10% discount applies still. I've already got our website updated to show the new vacs on the dropdown list on tools' product pages to give the option to bundle with the new models which are annotated with "2018 model" to make them easy to identify.

Note that there is a modest price increase for the updated vacs.

Thanks @Shane Holland - I'm guessing the modest price increase has to do with the new hose which, if it works as 'advertised', should be well worth it. 

I'm really intrigued with the Bluetooth remote- could have used that this weekend when using my Kreg jig with T18 drill.  Would be handy when using with the cleaning kit as well.

I would think that it should be compatible with the CT 22 and CT 33. Let's get @TylerC to confirm.

Thanks,  @Cheese 
I guess it 's the same kind of issue that  @Rick Christopherson  faced with the MaxSys module he designed.  Sure would be nice to outfit my two Midis with remotes, though.

Shane, what are the prices for the new ETS-EC sanders with the multi-Jetstream pad? The announcement mentioned the ability to pre-order that version, but I didn't see the option on your site.  Thanks!

Although I am not Shane nor Tyler, when I saw the bluetooth stuff back in the fall I asked directly about CT-22 usage because that is what I have.  I was told by the Festool employee showing off the products that he had two CT-22's and had asked the question just like I was.  The answer was unfortunately NO.

Is anyone else surprised that Bluetooth remote/module isn't $195?
