Hi,

  Welcome to the forum!  [smile]

   My first thought was that's available in the USA, but no.  USA only has the 4,500rpm version not the 2,500rpm.

   Sorry, that doesn't really help but I thought I would post so that people realize the difference.

seth, right, thanks for the input.  as per spec, the 2500 has more torque for driving screws into wood/beams/decks.  i've been told the 4500 doesn't have the mustard to achieve this task .  looking for a source for purchase of a 2500. and while we are on the subject, is there other bits available, ie torx, from festool, for this tool?

Festool does not allow dealers to sell beyond a country's borders to have control over the market. Not legal in lots of countries, but they still do it.

As for a Torx bit, I've found this one on their website, but their website is so crap now I don't know if this is the only one or if they have other sizes as well.

Just keep mailing dealers, sometimes one will sell you a tool despite Festool's rules.

Check out Amazon.de there may be several available there. Shipping to the states only takes 4-7 days.

You’ll receive the item from Europe faster than you’ll receive it from California.
