Kapex extensions for the REB 2019 model
« on: March 31, 2021, 09:43 AM »
Hello,

In the Festool Live Sedge says here:

that the extension bracket is really wide compared to an earlier version for attaching to the Kapex 120 REB model introduced in 2019. From my research there is no change in part number on the extensions. I'm looking for a used set and want to make sure if I go that route I'm not missing anything.

Also the UG cart is unchanged between the 120 EB and 120 REB models, correct?

@Shane Holland Maybe you know?

Thanks,
Matt

Matt, if you're referring to the left & right trimming attachment, then the part numbers are the same back to 2011 along with the UG cart.

Looks to be around the 34:30 - 35:30 timeframe (to get the context).

@guybo That's what I was interested in. What year are those extensions? I wonder if Festool quietly updated the extensions, keeping the same part number.

I think he means the extensions usually sold with Kapex MFT.
The REB model have small totally useless pull out wings that makes the wing attachment really poor. You who have the old model should be happy, as the groove that goes all the way for wing attachment is way better.

Anyway, here’s the narrower old KA-KS: (Now sold individually for CS50/70 with the add on CS70 designation)
“The Stig” Yes, it is true, at least some part of it..

Looked in EKAT, which has different part numbers than sales websites....

There are two sets of extension part numbers:

497352   Trimming attachment KA-UG-R
497353   Trimming attachment KA-UG-L

These use 10020256 Lug support, which in the exploded parts diagram appears to be narrow.

497207   KA-UG 1800 RIGHT
497221   KA-UG 1800 LEFT

These also use 10020256 Lug support, but in the exploded diagram they appear to be the wider version.

So I would guess that based on the length of the part number itself, 10020256 is a superseded part for whatever used to be used on the old UG-L and UG-R, but they didn't update the diagram.  Just under 9 bucks each, USD.

I prefer the diagrams for BMW parts where they list obsolete/superseded part numbers, but I'm just happy EKAT exists at all, so I can't complain too much...

@squall_line Perfect thank you that clears it up. I should've gone and done the research myself but I honestly didn't think to check ekat on this one. Harley uses superceded part numbers as well. 85607-98A then B, then C. They switched over to a ridiculous 100082893 type number around 2011 which no longer tells you the year the part was introduced. That 98 at the end indicates 1998.

I bought a new set of extensions and they came with the wider tab.
