Festool USA to launch new cordless tool line on July 1

New lineup delivers high-end quality, unmatched warranty guarantees and exceptional pricing.

Festool USA has announced that it will launch its comprehensive new lineup of premium cordless tools throughout North America on July 1. The new cordless line, like all Festool products, is German-engineered to exacting standards of excellence and features new pricing and warranty advantages for woodworkers, craftsmen and DIY hobbyists of all levels.

The cordless tools are powered with the new Li-HighPower 4.0 HPC-ASI 18 V Battery Pack, which offers a compact and light design that delivers the power and precision-performance customers demand from Festool. All tools in Festool’s new lineup are compatible with the new battery pack, and each cordless tool features Festool’s customized Systainer packaging system.

“At Festool we set out to quench our customers’ thirst for cordless in a way that delivers premium quality and value that doesn’t exist in today’s marketplace,” said Rick Bush, VP of marketing for Festool. “With this new lineup, we have delivered on Festool’s legendary reputation for quality. These tools mean business, get the job done right and extend incredible value to our customers -- all backed by our best-in-class wear-and-tear warranty coverage for 3 years, including the battery pack and charger.”

Powerful tools at appealing price points
The headliners of the new cordless lineup are the TID 18 Impact Driver and the T 18 Easy Drill Driver. The TID 18 features a standard quick-release chuck and T-Mode control for intelligent fastening. The T 18 Easy delivers a single, keyless chuck, two-speed gearbox and stepless speed control. Both tools offer the EC TEC brushless motor, magnetic bit storage and removable belt clip and start at $199.

Festool introduces combo sets and packs to maximize customer value
Customers can purchase Festool’s new cordless products individually from Festool’s extensive network of North American dealer locations beginning July 1. Festool dealers will also sell Festool’s cordless products packaged as combo sets designed for the customer who wants the Festool TID 18 Impact Driver or T18 Drill Driver along with one of Festool’s premium cordless sawing machines.

The combo sets will include either the TSC or HKC track saw or the PSC jigsaw. For a complete list of combo sets, please visit FestoolUSA’s cordless site: All combo sets are packaged in Festool’s legendary Systainer storage system.

Festool offers customers complete peace of mind
Festool’s 3-year all-inclusive warranty, which applies to all Festool tools, covers the tool, battery and charger against wear-and-tear, and is the best warranty in the industry. Festool delivers against this ‘gold standard’ warranty with in-house resources, where Festool’s trained experts manage all service and warranty requests. This “vertical integration” not only allows Festool to turn-around most customer requests in a few business days, but also guarantees a quality of workmanship and trust that out-sourcing cannot match.

Said Bush, “The decision about which power tools to purchase, in general -- and which cordless tools to buy, in particular -- should be based on a whole picture view . . . a value proposition that encompasses performance, price and warranty. Our customers can trust that Festool’s new cordless lineup measures up to Festool’s premium heritage on all fronts.”
