Hey Shane just a quick question. I noticed on the list that not only is the RS 2 E listed, but also with a price increase. Is this a newer model as I though they were being discontinued .  Thanks

@Rollin22Petes looks like Festool USA removed it from their price increase revision that was communicated earlier this week. My mistake for not removing it on our website.

It's the discontinued model. No information from FUSA about intentions to introduce a new model, which would be the RS 200 that has been offered in Europe for some time now.

Are either of the VAC Sys sets increasing in price?

@JimH2, no, only the pump by itself is going up. Which is odd.  [blink]

If you go to our website and you don't see a message on the product page about the price increase, the item is not increasing.

Hey Shane can you by any chance send an alternate link to that price increase ?
For some reason for the past 6 months or so I can’t get into the Tool Nut site.
I think they’ve blocked out-of-US visitors or something.
I’ve checked all over including Festool’s Global site but for the life of me couldn’t find that list anywhere but @ Tool Nut.

Yes, we blocked all traffic originating from outside of the U.S. for a few reasons.

1) We don't ship outside of the contentinental U.S., and believe it or not we get a LOT of inquiries about this even though it's on our website. So, it prevents any confusion on the matter.

2) It's been proven that there are parts of the world where a lot of online bad actors (hackers, etc) exist. For security reasons, I think it's in our best interests and those of our customers, to block certain countries.

3) Lastly, the price increase only applies to the U.S. market. Canada may also have a price increase, but the pricing would be different.

Does Festool still have a discount promotion for a sander and dust extractor purchased at the same time?

My workshop was just burglarized and I need to replace a number of Festool items.

I’d like to know this as well. I was looking to buy a midi and domino combo. I know they had deals on extractor/tool combos years ago, but I don’t see them anywhere anymore.

@Zack and @sg1011, as deepcreek responded, Festool suspended package discounts about 18 months ago, at the end of 2018. These discounts are no longer available from any authorized U.S. Festool dealer unfortunately.

Thanks for the info Shane. I was looking to replace my 10 year old mini with a new Bluetooth unit and of course a domino.  I thought that maybe they just weren’t advertising it.
