The Planex is 25% off, but a few days ago it was 50% discounted. I guess inflation comes from all angles.

I noticed the 50% off Planex (most recently posted on 2/1) was a different SKU from the Planex currently in the queue. Other than that, I don't know what the differences are. Maybe a much older manufacture date? Used an abused? Both SKUs are discontinued product.

FWIW…when Festool started this program 10? years ago, they would routinely offer the same SKU  numbers at varying price levels depending upon the condition. At that time you could purchase the item at whatever price point/condition level you were comfortable with.

I picked up the rotex 150 last week. It came brand new I even took off the pad and not a speck of dust on or in it. The ts 55 I picked up a month before was an old sku and the only thing that looked used on it was the plug it cord that came with it was wrapped weird. Other than that my experience so far has been pretty great.

I think that's a good system. It is also how KEH.com does it with used camera gear. The price is based on a clearly defined grading system. Tools aren't cameras, but some type of grading system would be nice.

Am familiar with KEH and have always been a fan of their rating system for used equipment.

I have been able to locate 3 different SKU numbers on the Planex drywall sander.  The first is 571579 which, according to 4nthony, is the Planex that will be up later on Recon.  This was discontinued when 575219 was introduced.  I do not know the differences between 571579 and 575219, may be a simple change such as systainer upgrade.  The third SKU is the current new model 575994 which has led lights and I believe has a different sanding pattern.

We will be bringing the Recon tools back. Currently, we are at minimal staff and working hard to keep our Warehouse team safe and healthy. And to your point, we're focusing on shipping new products and service to keep our Dealers stocked and craftsman working.
Soo... Where do I apply?

That was posted at the height of the pandemic in 2020.  If you're interested in working for Festool, I'd imagine you could just call their main line or visit their website and call them and see if they're hiring.
