Yup, Planex for me.  Does anyone know the difference between the LHS 225 and the LHS 225 EQ Plus? I went with the cheaper version, hopefully it's in good shape. Fingers crossed.

I think EQ means Electronic Control of the motor (same revs under diff loads). Plus is about packaging (a Systainer) and accessories.

Do Planex require an CT 36 AC, or do they work just the same with the other models of CTs

I'm hoping with the addition of the new pre-seperator the need for an AC is reduced.

I just bought the Planex and plan to use it with a CT 36 and a Cyclone separator. Just carry spare bags, and plan to replace the bag before it is even full as it will plug. Every once in a while you can thump the bag to get the caked pores to open back up if the bag starts plugging. Some fine dust may get past the bag into the expensive HEPA filter. This is the CT36AC filter part number Festool 203759, which is a $59 filter vs the $100 HEPA filter.

That ETS EC 125 is still available and is a good deal. I had considered purchasing one and turning it into an ETS EC 125/5 by changing out the fan and bearing assembly.

It's also interesting that the metric TSC's are still available while the imperial versions are sold out. [scratch chin]

I'm still on the lookout for a metric HKC. [big grin]

I ordered a T55 metric,  I'm curious if it will be beat to heck and be a tool that came back just as the warranty was coming near the end, or have they had a pile of these laying around for a while.   It would have been interesting to know how many of all the tools they had.   The metric stuff looked to sell pretty quick.  What doesn't look to be selling quick is the battery tools which makes sense.  Battery tools and non current models I would expect to be a harder sell than newer models.  If it was a current model but metric it looks to sell out pretty quick or rather not anything in difference we can draw conclusion from on this side.  I don't doubt someone at Festool come monday will put numbers in a spreadsheet and trying to draw some conclusions.

I really didn't want to buy a used/beat tool, but not many options.

I am most curious why so many Planex's where there and why half off.

I do not think any of these are going to be beat up - some might show light use with some scuffs, etc... and the Systainers might be a little dirty. The return policy is 30 days - so there would not be any returns 3 years in. My guess (and this is just a guess on my part) is that these are new "old" stock left over or returns from dealers/stores that had old stock.

Also realize you will either need a Planex hose, or at the least a D36 hose. The Planex hose locks on vs the D36 that will probably fall off fairly often if you don't find a way to tape it on, or rig a bungee to it.

I've never had an issue with a recon tool, everyone I've received, looks like new, including the Systainer.  A couple of issues though, check for the proper accessories in the Systainer. Sometimes you're missing a screw, sometimes it's a wrench.

Also of note, I purchased a recon MFK 700 in 2017 that was assembled in 2008.  [eek]

Picked up a C15 drill set for me. I have a the special Centrotec bit set from a few years ago, so now I can put it all to good use. I was planning on getting the new Festool CT cyclone, so that's back on the list.

For those that just got a planex, I picked one up off local craigslist and I use a 36mm hose and CT 36 with planex autoclean air filter, no issues.

Both are TSC saws, both are basic saws, as in no batteries, no charger, no rail. Both are also metric. The 561730 is circa 2016. The 575372 is from a later date. That’s all I know. Maybe it’s just a change in packaging?

@TylerC ?

The numbers on this have changed a few times, and I'm struggling to track down the specifics on this one. They're both metric, pre-Airstream versions. On occasion, numbers will change without any actual change to the tool or scope of delivery.

Received my orders today.  They look ok, bit dust and such here and there, but basically look never used. 

One thing I would suggest to Festool is to get some new cardboard boxes. Ones without "Festool" down the side in giant letters.  While 99+% of the population is unlikely to have ever heard of the company (think it's party supplies or some service to test for colon cancer) , some might know what "Festool" is.  When I can see whats on my porch from the street driving along, that isn't a good plan in this age of package theft.  No one needs "Festool" on the side of shipping boxes, it only helps thieves.  And no, I don't want signature heck.

Small correction, put the Planex together, it's definitely been used, there is drywall dust down the inside of it, impressive cleaning job on the outside of it. There is also a screw rattling in the systainer, looks to be the same socket cap screw used to hold the sanding head/pad on.  Do planex have come with a spare of that screw? Or is this an IKEA like thing where sometimes you just get some random quantity of extra parts.

I do have a question for festool.  So the TS55 had a green sticker on it that from looking means it was checked for the recall.  On the systainer for the Planex there is a similar but solid red dot on the label of the systainer, what does this red dot mean?

Unless things have changed from past programs there very possibly will not be a shipping notice.  I wouldn’t worry if I were you.

Log into the recon website and see if your order states "Fulfilled". If so it has been shipped.

I sent a request for a tracking number last week to Festool and never heard back. Fortunately My UPS gave me a shipment tracking number this morning. Since I am going to be out of town, I redirected the package to be held for pickup.

My order showed "Unfulfilled" as late as this morning, then I got an email in the afternoon indicating it had shipped. Overall longer than I might have expected, but aside from the new toy anticipation, I'm not depending on it showing up in any particular timeframe so merely a first-world problem for me.

Now I need to get some sandpaper ordered up somewhere, it never ends. :)

Got my planex and conturo the other day.  Both look pretty new, hardly any dust in/on the planex.  Date on the planex was 10/17 and 3/15 on the conturo.
