The launch of Festool Unplugged sees the brand develop its cordless offering. The manufacturer claims that a combination of new 5.2Ah high-performance battery packs with brushless EC-TEC motors guarantees excellent results every time. Plus the introduction of PowerSelect offers users more buying freedom and flexibility.
5.2Ah batteries – work for 25% longer
The improved battery range sees all 15V and 18V batteries increasing from 4.2Ah to 5.2Ah, meaning the tradesman can work 25% longer between charges. This combined with brushless EC-TEC motor technology ensures optimal power usage, greater efficiency and longer tool life.
“With our cordless range, we are focusing on increased intelligence, increased efficiency, and longer tool life” explains Festool product manager Patrick Haußmann. To this end, Festool is focusing on the intelligent interplay between its tried-and-tested brushless EC-TEC motor technology and the latest cell technologies.
Festool offers tradesmen a secure investment alongside sustainable compatibility – as Haußmann explains, “Our battery packs and tools have all been compatible for years. This even applies across systems for older battery packs with NiCd and NiMH cells, which can be used in current-generation Li-ion tools.”
PowerSelect – maximum buying flexibility at no extra cost
The new PowerSelect offers three different buying variants providing the greatest possible flexibility in configuring tools to suit a tradesman’s specific cordless needs.
The Basic Version includes the cordless tool without battery packs or charger, but still comes in a high quality systainer and with core accessories.
The Plus Version includes the cordless tool, systainer and core accessories and comes with the battery packs and charger.
The Set Version offers the same as the Plus Version but with added extras and accessories.
PowerSelect offers the freedom and flexibility to buy what is needed without any hidden extra costs if batteries and chargers are purchased at a later date.
Servicve all-inclusive now also applies to battery packs and chargers. It includes: Protection from repair costs and theft protection for 36 Months, “risk-free purchasing” for 15 days and a 10 year “replacement parts availability guarantee” (once a model has been discontinued).
