New van colours!
« on: October 18, 2016, 01:06 PM »
After starting on the slippery festool slope a few years ago, I can honestly say the tools have improved my productivity and quality of my workmanship no end. My favourites have to the plunge saw and kapex. Having just got a new van, I thought the time is right for new colours on the livery! I love it but what do you guys think? Too much?

Looks great, but you put steering wheel on the wrong side.  [scared]

Will definitely turn heads of Festool junkies.

I think it looks great.  Not too much at all.  To me, it says there is a successful professional tradesman that must be doing something right if he can afford a vehicle like that and have it outfitted in such an organized, neat and clean way.

Thanks for those kind words  :) Many clients comment on the inside of the van, which is a nice compliment to receive.

Agree. Good initial impression is important to win jobs.

Incredible job!  Although I would hate to see your annual insurance premium.  Very professional appearance!

Wow. Gorgeous scheme and what an eye catcher. Not too much at all, if I lived over there and needed some renovation work I'd call! Well.....I'd do my own work but By God if I did not I would call!!!!

I'll ask the hard-hitting questions. What is that green circular thing above right of your dust pan?

Van looks great!

That is wind up power cord.  The plug end is clearly visible...

Well done graphics. But the security side of me would never leave that parked anywhere unattended. Too many crooks in these parts.

That's awesome! In these parts I don't even put my number on my vehicle. Anything that might set a vehicle apart makes it a target. Until I get a shop, I can't risk it...

I see it now. I though power cord was something sticking out of the cubbie.

the picture is actually a photo of my ts55 so I think copyright may be mine ha ha. Seriously though, I think it's a good bit of advertising for Festool so I don't think they'll mind too much.

wow, really? Sounds a little harsh in that part of the world. Guess we're very lucky, but we do have criminals and that's why the van is emptied every night.

It is harsh... I live in the center of Canda's oilfields, and we've always had loads of thieves. But mass layoffs and low oil prices mean people resort to more crime to survive...  I have had tools stolen before, and recovered some at pawn shops. But having 9K of Festool items means I simply can't risk it.

In Some of the larger car boot sales in North LOndon. You can see vans with thousands and thousands of pounds worth of top spec tools for sale .Crime against builders ,crafts people etc must be terrible .

Not just odds bits and sods etc, 10-20 Hiltis in cases, frestools and dewalt gear. some almost brand new . "Same types" always selling them etc .
week after week
There is one guy i heard of that sprays EVERY TOOL  no matter what Day glo pink .He does not care .the whole case, batteries the lot get spayed. He then reccons it would be harder to steal  and sell etc

just not right the way hard working professionals have to take all types of precautions in case they're targeted. Pink is the way forward 😏

That van looks kickass!!
Very smart to take advantage of the appearance of a premium brand, I like it a lot.
Regarding the inside, that goes without saying is just superb  [eek]

The TS55 on the side does that also displays the festool name, I can't really tell.
I would have removed any word saying festool, just displaying the saw without the name festool is enough.

thanks for those words and yes once they'd taken the image from my ts55, I got them to blank the word festool out. "Great minds think alike" 👍
