  Welcome to the forum!  [smile]

      Festool has not said anything about whether or not the motor issues have been addressed, and probably won't say.

      There is a bunch of info on the new version of Kapex in this topic  http://festoolownersgroup.com/festool-tools-accessories/new-tools-for-2019-including-ctm-midi-and-kapex-updates-among-others/ .

      There is nothing new about the current version. A search for 'Kapex motor' should result in many topics on the motor here on FOG.
