Kapex KS 120 REB
« on: April 13, 2019, 07:25 AM »
Hi all, the latest Kapex KS 120 REB, on the previous model Kapex KS 120 EB, the EB means Electronic Brake if I remember correctly. So, REB, anybody know what the R means?
Re designed? Re vamped? Re paired?  [tongue]

I know it has the little side extensions etc, and hopefully some important updates, I can’t find reference to REB though?
I would appreciate any info.

Thank you kindly.

I think it's just an extra letter added to the EB code to show it as an updated model JJ.

Festool did the same thing with the TS55. The previous model was a TS55 EB and the latest version is the TS55 REB.
Not sure what the R actually stands for....!

Hi
It’s a way of showing it’s a ‘renewed design’....

Haven't heard anything yet and if you look at the Festool 2019 catalog, the old EB model is the only one listed.

After wrestling with myself to decided, I went to the tool shop/store on Saturday morning, and as I got to the counter, they were just selling the last one  [blink]

Ordered one today, hopefully arriving tomorrow or Wednesday.  [thumbs up]
