What’s New?

A new Festool object caught my eye the other day – a new version of the Systainer dolly.

This one is a cross between the dolly and a handcart.  Where the original dolly is specifically designed for moving around the flat floor of the workshop, this one is very much for moving from job to job, including stairs and via vehicles.

So that was pretty interesting.  And the original dolly has also been upgraded as well. (Also known as a roll-board)



Now if you want to sit down on the job, you could always employ the MFH Workstool, complete with consumables storage.  Especially if there was a Cooltainer nearby, and tunes on the Festool Radio.


FestoolSo what else is out there in Festool World?

Now I was always very impressed with the Protool Swordsaw.  Now even better that it is in Festool garb!

There are are some other bits n pieces (there is always a new drill or 3 for some reason), concrete cutters and grinders and paint stirrers.
