New Festool Products and a Fantastic Plunge Saw Deal
Festool have now released their Autumn 2012 products and deals, and they look to be a good set! There is a brand new jigsaw, some new Systainer accessories, and a deal on the popular TS 55 R plunge saw.
The CARVEX PS 420
The new PS 420 jigsaw retains many features from the PS 400, but also includes many improvements. The stroke rate remains at 3,800 spm thanks to the powerful, efficient and long-lasting brushless 550w motor (up from 500w). The design is just as lightweight but more ergonomic. The PS 420 features a new hammer guide and blade guide for increased precision, and is excellent for both straight and the tightest of curve cuts.
Carvex jigsaws are built around a system; all accessories are mounted and demounted without the use of tools thanks to the rapid-change interface, and there is a wealth of accessories to choose from. This jigsaw is available in a staggering range of options, including the choice between cordless (14.4v – 18.0v) and mains powered, barrel grip and top handle, and with or without additional accessories.
Festool’s systainers are very useful ways of organising all of your tools and accessories, and now there are three new additions to the range:
The first is the SYS-ToolBox, which is essentially Festool’s version of the classic open top toolbox. It has two spacious compartments, can be attached to systainers and dust extractors for easy transportation, and is ideal for storing hand tools, consumables and accessories where they are easily accessible.
Next up is the SYS-Cart, which is a small roll board designed for the easy transportation of systainers. Its light weight of 1 kg and compact design means that it is a practical solution for small spaces, but it can still support up to 100 kg.
The final new systainer product is the SYS-Roll. Similar to the SYS-Cart, this product is designed for the transportation of systainers; however there are several key differences. Firstly, with its larger back wheel this product is much more capable of navigating rough, uneven terrain and stairs. Secondly, the rear support extends upwards to form a handle, making it more comparable to a trolley that is much easier to move long distances. Lastly, it features an integrated drawer for storage of important sundries. The SYS-Roll itself weighs 6.5 kg and can support up to 100 kg.
As well as the brand new jigsaw and systainer accessories, we have also managed to get our hands on a great deal for the TS 55 R plunge saw. For anyone who missed this product launch, the TS 55 R is an upgrade to the popular TS 55. The newly designed housing allows you to flush cut against walls, an adjustable viewing window and improved dust extraction means that you always have a clear view of the work in progress, and you can now make even finer adjustments for an even higher degree of accuracy. Don’t forget, this product is available in both 110v and 240v, but the code differs slightly!
This is a really great plunge saw, and we’ve got a really great deal on it! The package normally includes one FS 1400 guide rail, but this deal includes a second FS 1400, two connectors and a handy guide rail bag, all absolutely free. In fact, we’ve dropped our previous price by £10, so there really is no excuse not to buy one!
