Festool Cordless Sanders - Video
« on: February 14, 2018, 01:30 PM »
Hi Everyone

Festool UK kindly lent me the 3 new cordless sanders (RTSC 400, DTSC 400 and the ETSC 125). My video was delayed as these tools have been selling so well.

I plan to use these in a second video which I am planning as a "Which Festool Sander" type video together with my own sanders and a couple borrowed from a friend. That will hopefully follow in the not too distant future.

Once all the video work is complete the sanders will be packed ready for collection by Festool UK.

Here is the first of those videos:

Fantastic video as always Peter!

Looking forward to see more of your cabinet restoration project - and the sanders of course. :)

Kind regards,

@Peter Parfitt

Great video Peter!

I purchased all three Hybrid sanders at the end of December, and love them.   When inside my shop, I still prefer to use the dust extractor and cord, but when outside sanding, or upstairs sanding something I don't want to drag downstairs to the shop,  there is no better option than cordless. 

Initially, some complained about needing a new battery platform, but as you pointed out in your video, both battery styles use the same charger, so I still only have one charging station in my shop.   My hope is that in the future, Festool will develop another tool that can use the same battery as the sander (think Vecturo).

One other point; when I purchased mine, I bought the RTSC in the complete "set" version, then both the DTSC and ETSC in the less expensive "basic" version (sander only, no batteries or plug-it option), saving a considerable amount of money.  Of course, I am a one man show, so I won't be competing with myself to use these different sanders at the same time.  Someone running a crew may find the need for additional "sets". 

Looking forward to the next video!

Hi Oliver and Cliff

Thank you for that. A good point about only needing one set version.
