As a Canadian owner of a three-years+-old Kapex, it is a relief to read your feedback. Festool service deserves praises for this excellent service encounter.

As an American owner of a <5 but >3 year old Kapex, it is a kick in the teeth to read your feedback. Festool USA should be ashamed of themselves for their appalling silence on this issue. See what I did there.

Why do people continue to buy these?
If you make millwork for a living, then it is worth it. Everything burns up eventually.

Had I known about the motor issue, I would not have bought it, no matter how amazing it was. I rank reliability #1 consideration when I buy a car, a machine, etc. Having said that, I enjoy the Kapex very much, especially its accuracy and dust collection. I use mainly rough lumber and, as part of stock preparation,  the Kapex is therefore used in almost every project, large and small.

Yeah, my hitachi was acquired used about 25 years ago. Use it daily. I'm going to hate it when it burns up
