PUR cable questions and more
« on: September 01, 2014, 10:12 AM »
I want to purchase a Shinex and a rotex 125. Who carries and sells Shinex polishers with PUR cable and who carries and sells Rotex sanders that also sells PUR plug-it, european part no 489662. I know the shinex does not have a plug-it, I already own the european version of the tool. Also, who carries and sells the updated version, the product changed completely around six months ago, of MPA 5000. I have used a ton of the new version, it has a sticker on the top lid that says the new 1-step and it smells like green apples :). I can send you a photo of it since I brought some with me from Greece. I do not like the previous version so please direct me responsibly. I have also brought with me my lex2 and lex3  sanders along with all the ias2 and ias3 parts. Is there any reason why I wouldn't be able to convert the ct36 ac to an le mode so I can use my sanders .
Thank you!

I can greatly recommend the German shop of Gerschwitz.
Prices are one of the best in Europe, they have great service and send to many European countries, I think Greece as well.
They also have great knowledge of many products they sell.
Look at Holzfachmarkt Gerschwitz.
Festoolian since 1998.

Thank you so much. I am in the US now though. I want a seller here that will provide me with what I am looking for. The tools have to be 120/60hz

The PUR cable is not available in the US.

I have no information regarding a change in the MPA compounds. It always smelled like apples to me. Any time there's a change to a product, we get a new product number. I'm not aware of any product number changes to the MPA compounds.

There should be no issues using the IAS and LEX sanders with a CT 36 bought in the US.

The part no didn't change . The product did. Does the one here have the sticker like the one on my picture. If yes who has it. The updated version is like night and day to the old one. You can tell immediately from the cut, behaviour and absolutely no dust. Kindly please don't question what I am telling you just please inform me who has it in stock. As for the smell, no comparison . Indeed the older tryied the new one smells like you just chewed in a green apple , lol .Festool Greece was insisting the same thing until they called Germany and imported it for me. Feel free to call Panos Megas, owner of festool Greece to verify if you want to. Use my name Agapios Sofoulakis .Thank you for the verification about the le system .
