 I was told that the Sys Rock is coming to Aus soon.
  It's not at the top of my shopping list but it will Be interesting to see how they price it.

@DB10

I won't be lining up for it !

The only way I'd end up with one would be if it was a promotional give away.

I've expressed opionions on a couple of Sysrock threads relating to the features it comes with (or more specifically, the features it doesn't).

I'm seriously curious about what is actually "Sys" in the Sysrock. Surely it's not about battery system compatibility [huh]

Pricing from Tooltechnic? That'll be something to giggle about I'm sure ... and every premium shop will be commanded to have one playing [big grin]

@Kev  Ah, Fantasy Festool,  That great tool company that gives away promotional gear and small useful items to loyal customers.

 Unfortunately the Festool I buy from won't  even give away a pencil with the sale of a Kapex, so little chance of a promotional radio.

@Kev when did you buy the TSC 55? And can you spend the voucher on anything Festool or does it have to go towards another power tool.

@DB10 got it from Northern Abrasives in Brookvale NSW. The voucher says I can spend in towards my "next" power select tool before the end of June ... can't think of anything 18V I need that I haven't already got! Maybe we'll be surprised shortly with a new Ti18 [sad]

@Kev  The new Sys Rock should be with us before June, not sure if it counts as a power tool though.

@DB10 I sincerely wouldn't part with $0.01 for a Sysrock - how it made it beyond the scope of being a promotional trinket completely befuddles me [blink] [huh]

@Kev  My $50 voucher turned up in the post today, This was also in relation to my TSC 55 purchase. I was a bit surprised as I bought the saw nearly a year ago, got until June to use it, I don't need anything Festool 18v either at the moment, I might take a look again at the HKC.

@DB10 the HKC isn't awful .. it was the last 18V tool I got. I really like the rails too - I have the short and the medium ones (I didn't get the long one as I've got a 1080 with the protractor on it an feel it's a better way to go for accuracy on a longer cut)

Re: One for the Aussies...Fein Prices

Interesting that two Dealers who discounted Festool prior to the Determination by the ACCC, which led to resale price maintenance in Australia for Festool; are asking customers to contact them by phone/email for a special price on Fein tools.

And who is the Australian importer of Fein?  Join the dots.

Interesting indeed. Maybe they are trying to push a more competitive edge, or to try and pull the wool over our eyes to their business practises.

Notice anything suddenly missing from the Festool Aust. Sander lineup?

http://www.festool.com.au/epages/tooltechnic.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/tooltechnic/Categories/Sanders/random-orbital-sanders

Yes it appears there is no ETS150/3.

Yet it still appears on UK site -
https://www.festool.co.uk/Products/Pages/Product-Competence.aspx?foc=online_exzenterschleifer

Am I correct - is it being phased out down here, or in UK/Europe and NA?
