Phil, is the DSC-AGC 18 FH also coming out at the same time, or is that just the AGC-18 with some accessories for improved dust collection and depth of cut control



And more importantly (to me anyway), when will it be available in the North America, if ever. I could use this tool right now.

It's a table saw, do you know where your fingers are?

Bob, if you need something comparable in cordless in North America, Hilti and Metabo both have powerful cordless grinders and effective dust shrouds. I am in both the Metabo and Hilti battery platforms, but will likely be purchasing the Hilti 5” cordless grinder and their dust-collecting shroud. Either setup will lack the flip-up feature of the Festool, but will likely have better collection due to more fully shrouding the blade. 8.0ah batteries available in both platforms....

Thanks, I like Hilti and Metabo but I can't justify starting in on another battery platform, I've
got four going now (Festool 18v & 15v, Bosch 12v, DeWalt 20v & 8v, RIDGID 18v & 12v) not
counting yard tools (Ryobi 40v and EGO 56v).

Hi
The DS AGC 18 will be available also in September for diamond cutting applications with extraction. As for North America this is for my US colleagues to give information on
