You have the Fein cordless one? How does it perform (battery wise)?
...
Yeha, a nice stack of green/white boxes just looks cool. Not a clue what it is about it  [eek]

No complaints at all on the performance.
Even on the tiny (and brilliantly light) 12V battery it does a great job.
I think the main advantage is the general 2° oscillating angle. Compared to my previous no-name multitool, the Fein cuts like nothing else.

I have the Systainer Version from Fein, so it is nice to make out in the fitting Orange/Black boxes...

I also have one of the older Feins with the Allen wrench...mine's pneumatic.  That being said I have an older Multimaster with all the accessories stored in two grey Tanos systainers.  I bought a Supercut, not the new quick release, from Toolnut when they sold them in a systainer and then got the 18v cordless from them also in a systainer.  The cordless is great, especially working off a ladder.  The Supercuts both came with the adapter so I can use copious number of MM blades that I have.  I have the Vecturo accessories, the plunge base and the depth adaptor and they fit the Fein Supercuts perfectly.

For anyone in Europe who already owns a cordless Vecturo, are you able to speak to whether the new and improved accessories (now with dust collection!) are a) backwards compatible with the older corded Vecturo and/or 2) compatible with the Fein Multimaster 350QSL? If the OSC ring fits over the head of the current version of the Multimaster and the associated bolt-hole pattern matches same, then this would open up a wonderful opportunity for MM owners to benefit from the dust collection advancements evident in the new OSC Vecturo.

The question of compatibility has been asked multiple times both here and elsewhere but no one has yet responded to it. I, for one, am looking forward to the answer.

I'm not exactly sure what the appeal of the small batteries on multitools is?
I prefer a bit of weight in the tool as it damps down the pretty severe vibrations.
The allowable usage time on these things is short enough as it is, you have heard of hand arm vibration have you?
Also I often use the blade at 90 degrees from the tool as it  seems to lessen the vibration even more.

Looks like some nice improvements. I have a old fien that does the job so I wont be needing a new one

My Fein is so old I have to use an Allen wrench to change the blade. The new Venturi seems to have a few improvements.  [wink]
. Don’t feel bad MK, my new 2.0 SuperCut has a bolt as well.  It’s not a deal breaker for me though.
Not as many Sanders as PA Floor guy.....

Hey guys, the 18V Vecturo hit the stores today in Sweden.
They arrived late yesterday at my local dealership and I did have a quick hands on with them today - unfortunately I got in the store five minutes before closing time so it was a brief stint with them!

http://festoolownersgroup.com/festool-tools-accessories/vecturo-18v-in-stores-now!/

Both machines we looked at were manufactured 2019/02 (February)  8)
Festool:  CS 50EB precisio set, Domino DF500, DF XL 700, OFK500 edge router, OF1010 router EHL65 planer, CTL Mini/Midi Vac, CTL 26 vac MFT800+1080 tables
DSC-AG Grinder,  RAS 115
Rotex 150, ETS EC 150/5 RTS400
Drills: T18, BHC18, CXS.
SysLite KAL II, SYS Rock.
Sys- and Sortainers galore.

Line up has been reduced with the introduction of Mafell/Metabo tools. Red Green and Blue do mix well in the shop.

Right here goes...had a bit of a play today... 8) :

You CAN fit the New Starlock Vecturo accessory mount to the Starlock Supercut.
You CANNOT fit the NEW Vecturo accessories to the OLD Vecturo mount.
You CAN actually fit the NEW Vecturo Mount to the OLD vecturo BUT it does not allow correct operation, so do NOT do this, we only performed a test.
We presume the same goes for the old supercut but we do not have a machine to test.
You CAN fit the NEW Vecturo mount to the Starlock Multimaster BUT the Multimaster is only rated to Starlock plus so not recommended.

DISCLAIMER, these tests were just to see if things physically fit we haven't carried out extensive testing , please follow manufacturers instructions at all times to avoid voiding the warranty.

Hope this helps folks! [smile]

I'm curious what you mean by that? In what way is the operation impeded?

Little hard to explain..
 But the new collet or adaptor is too deep hence the the blade doesn't seat correctly.
on the new Vecturo the tool holder is deeper.

pics below. Hopefully makes sense.

Thanks...so when you put the blade in, the blade probably contacts the new adapter?

@Havwoods Accessories Ltd - Could you please expand on your statement: "You CAN fit the NEW Vecturo mount to the Starlock Multimaster BUT the Multimaster is only rated to Starlock plus so not recommended." I'm not sure what you mean by these machine's respective "ratings" and how this effects their use in conjunction with the new dust collection accessories.

I own a 350QSL and would like to be able to purchase and utilize the OSC accessories since FEIN doesn't currently supply (and has never supplied) 'bladed' dust collection for the MM.

I look forward to your reply. Also, feel free to PM me with your answer if youvre not comfortable sharing it publicly.

@usernumber1 no official word. Tools are typically introduced in the European market 6-12 months in advance of their debut in the U.S/Canada.

I just took a look at the 2019 Festool catalog and the OSC 18 is not listed in there.

@Cheese , thanks for the heads up on a new catalog being out.  I had no idea.

For those looking for the catalog right now here is a link:  https://www.festoolusa.com/knowledge/catalog-request  Once you get to the interactive catalog you can use the little icons on the screen to download a pdf if you wish.

It isn't populated on the webpage where the other catalogs are / have been.

I'll add to that Peter that you MUST use the icons on the bottom of the screen/page to save it in .pdf form. I tried saving it as a web file and that completely destroyed its functionality.

We haven't announced a date for the cordless Vecturo in NA yet. The FOG will definitely know once an announcement is made.

It's also not in the 2019 USA catalog.

My guess is that it will be a late fall introduction. Probably September/October.

For example the ETS EC was a September 2015 introduction. While the HKC was a September 2016 introduction.
