New Fein SuperCut
« on: January 07, 2016, 05:39 PM »
There are now pictures of the new Fein SuperCut 500 W multitool: FSC 500 QSL.
It will be available in Europe in April 2016.
I'm waiting for the battery powered new SuperCut or Vecturo.
And it comes with the new Starlock system for the blades.
This new system is developed together with Bosch and will be the new standard for multitools (like SDS).

Starlock, Starlock Plus, and Starlock Max.

OK, now I'm wondering, if this is going to be the standard, why make three variations?

Why not one and the same for all? I think this is very odd.

Indeed that's kind of weird.
But it has to do with downward compatibility with older machines.
First blade is for Bosch, second is for Fein MM and the last is for the newer machines or with the new adapter.
With Starlock you don't need any tool to attach the blade.
Have a look at this video and you'll understand.

Why waste time and money designing another new blade system lol. Theres not a lot wrong with the existing quick change, apart from some people say they can easily lose the pin.

Trouble is the 350 multimaster is so good that they've probably had to add new gizmos like this to the supercut otherwise they won't sell many.

Just guessing

That blade change is awesome

I will be waiting for supercut  cordless or the festool  cordless.

But I doubt festool will get the new anti vibration head on it.

The feint look awesome 

Cheers

Has anyone seen these in the stores? It is also listed in the 2017 catalog, but I can not find any of the larger stores stocking these.

The cordless version has been available from some online retailers in the states.
The corded version has been bumped to May 1st, June 1st, and "arriving soon"
for the various sets.  The local dealers have gotten orders in, recently: no new supercuts, but they have replenished stock of the previous model....

I got the pre starlock version of the supercut for Christmas.  It was significantly cheaper and cuts the same.  It works with the Bosch starlock blades I got at the same time and older blades I have.  I am very happy with it.  Very different tool from the HR and Ryobi cordless I had first.  More powerful, less vibration and cuts much quicker.

Fixed that slightly so it applies to me  [wink]
