ToolNut's website seems to be having issues. I got Bad Gateway Messages going from the link here and trying to login. However the link in my e-mail took me right in.

Couple of questions.

Why is this fixed cord instead of Plug-It?

Why is this model not listed on the Festool USA web site? Only thing there is the cordless version.

@jeffinsgf, there are some threads here on the forum about the conversion away from the Plug-It for the Vecturo corded model.

https://www.festoolownersgroup.com/festool-tools-accessories/no-plugit-on-vecturo
https://www.festoolownersgroup.com/festool-sales-dealer-area/vecturo-order-now-if-you-want-a-plug-it-(us)

In short, customers experienced issues with vibration with the Plug-It. So Festool converted it to a fixed cord.

It's probably not on the FUSA website because it's being discontinued and they have removed it.

How do you tell the new Kapex from the old? Is it the old that’s on sale?

The linked Kapex doesn’t mention a discount. Is it sold out already?

@Michael Kellough, this is the now-discontinued model (KS 120 EB, 561287). The "new" version is the KS 120 REB (575306).

The original price was $1,475, the price now on the site is $1,349. And, it is still in stock, however we have low inventory.

That was quick! Thanks Shane.

Part of my confusion was/is the lack of either EB or REB in the listing.

@Shane Holland - So is the corded Venturo that you have on sale being discontinued altogether? No more corded at all?

Correct. It looks like Festool is discontinuing the corded model entirely and going only cordless.
