Festool USA Announces the Launch of New Products

LEBANON, IN--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - Festool USA announces three new products available now, including T 12+3 and T 15+3 Cordless drill/drivers (non-set versions), hand sanding blocks, and Systainer SYS 2 Attic.

"These products highlight the versatility of the Festool system," says Rick Bush, Festool Product Manager. Bush continues, "For those who already have our drills or just starting, the T+3 drills work with all Festool FastFix chucks. The hand sanding blocks use existing Festool abrasives, and the Systainer SYS 2 Attic works with other existing tools."

T 12+3 and T 15+3 Cordless drill/driver non-set versions

The T+3 drills are now available in a basic set. Each of these includes the Centrotec starter set, 1/2" Fast Fix standard chuck, two Lithium ion batteries, and charger. The drills are packaged in a Systainer SYS 2 Attic for expanded storage capability.

Three hand sanding blocks & hand sanding block set+SYS Mini

Two sanding blocks (soft & hard versions) feature an ergonomic, round design and are compatible with the full line of Festool 6" (150mm) abrasives -- the same abrasives used with the Rotex 150 and ETS 150 sanders. The soft pad is used for fine sanding and touchups and the hard pad for coarse sanding and shaping.

The hard rectangular pad is ideal for edge work and corners and is compatible with the full line of Festool 80x133mm abrasives -- the same abrasives used with the RTS 400 and LS 130 sanders.

Hand sanding block set+SYS Mini

The hand sanding block set includes all three sanding blocks with a SYS mini. The SYS mini is available in grey (or green, for a limited time).

Systainer SYS 2 Attic

This systainer features an "attic," which includes dividers to organize, store, protect, and transport bits, drivers, fasteners, and other small parts. The Systainer is shipped empty, but Systainer inserts may be ordered as spare parts.
