Any reason to believe these accessories won’t be compatible with the corded Vecturo? Has anyone seen anything official that addresses backwards compatibility explicitly?
Not a professional, just a DIY festfool with apparently too much money on his hands -- Kapex120 | TS75 | OF1400 | CT26 | ETS EC125 | Carvex PS420 | CXS | Vecturo | MW 1000 | x2 MFT3 | UG Stand w/ wings

Good question, however some of those accessories are already available for the corded one. They look identical to me.



Not sure if they share the same part # but i would guess a YES!

For that matter, I don't see why the accessories won't be compatible with any Fein products as well. The head looks exactly the same, they just have that removable accessory ring.

The plunge base is different ..................  no dust shroud or depth stop on the old plunge base.

But the attachment portion does look the same.

I hope they are compatible.

The attachment portion (labeled B in your pics) will be different.

The new Starlock Plus System has a bigger diameter for the tool holder.

I am using the old Festool parts (old corded Vecturo) on the current Fein SuperCut.
The attachment needed to spend some time on the lathe for a quick “diet”. ;)

Also I think the dust extraction features will be worth the upgrade. Hopefully the mounting holes are still the same.

Well I hope they retained the magnet on the front of the base...however that may be the location where the new DC port is.

Hi James,

It is a normal 3.1 ah battery.
Those are normally packaged with the “compact” versions of drills etc.

You most likely are used to 5.2 ah batteries, which are more of a standard on the tools sets...

The Vecturo runs on the batteries any drill/saw runs on (besides 10.8V, obviously...)

Additionally, I get the impression from the official specs on festool.de and from previous leaks that it only runs on the compact BP 18 Li 3,1 and not the larger pack (similar to how the circular saw only runs on the 5.2Ah variant, not the compact). Would like to be corrected if that's wrong.

That is getting right to the point. Great demonstration, although I have no clue what was said.

That's a relief - does the oscillator feel difficult to handle with the larger battery or is it pretty much the same with both sizes? Thanks for the video!

Hi Brian,

I can only compare the Fein SuperCut 18V/5ah and 12V/2.5ah.

I assume the Festool 3.1 will be similar to the Fein 18V/2.5 which I don’t have. But it will also most likely be the perfect balance between power and weight.
With the 5ah, the SuperCut is a tad heavy and a little cumbersome to use.
But it is still a nice machine.

For any task where overhead/strange positions/twisted grip are needed, I much prefer the lighter battery with the tool.

And at least in my use, the multitool is then mostly not used for extended periods anyway.

Hope this helps.

I look forward to the Vecturo since that 2 degree oscillation makes quite a difference for tougher cuts. Never found my Supercut (corded) lacking. Never had a battery powered non Fein multicutter which has been more than just "ok". 

The dealer said that it won't take Supercut blades (of which I have 70+ blades...) but I am wondering if there perhaps exists an adapter or workaround for using Supercut blades on Starlock.

I have the adapter for the other way around (which does not help me in this case of course...) and I would hate having to stock up on Starlock blades when I have a drawer full of Fein Supercut blades...

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.

Someone may come up with an adapter, but I do not see how any kind of adapter would allow for quick blade changes. The Starlocks do not have the long blade mounting pin.

Yup, it is probably not going to happen - but considering Festool came from the same Supercut mount I was hoping they would come up with something to fit the existing blades.

I don't mind a little hassle changing blades as long as the mount is sturdy.

Dust collection and a depth stop make the kit more appealing to me. Cordless is also great for a multi-tool. Looking forward to this one coming to the US. It does not seem that we have to wait as long these days for new tools to make it to NA, which is always good!

I needed a Multitool last year.

I wanted new technology and did not want to wait.
Since the Festool models are always just re-branded/modified versions of the Fein SuperCut, I just got a SuperCut last year.

I like it very much and hope to be able to use the Festool-only accessories as well.

I adapted the old plungebase, but will most likely get the new one, if there is some more convenience to the ease of use. Same for the dust collection accessories. :)

I think if you need a tool like this, choice is yours.

Obviously, the green looks fantastic as always. ;)

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]

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]

I have the same model as you Michael...you forgot to add that after 20 minutes of use it's too hot to hold without wearing gloves.  [smile]
