Yeah, CDM, you are right about that, we even have a 5 year "waranty" that thrumps out all normal waranties, but as i stated the festool pricing is even more distorted. Festool tools are more expensive to begin with, but becuase there is only one big reseller in norway they charge a premium.
If the pricing was minus the 33% they give if you ask, i would have been "happy", but since they set the sticker price soooo high, just to give the discount, the people that dont know about the discount, or dont get it, pay way to much! it is like a car dealer!
In generel my beef is with the reseller.
