That's weird.  I've bought several things from the Festool Recon site and it's always been free shipping.

I’m also a little confused by the question, because we don’t sell new tools direct to customers.

I just bought a Rotex off the recon site this week and no freight charges. They do charge sales tax though (I’m in Texas).
