New Festool TKS-80 ?
« on: May 18, 2019, 01:33 PM »
I though that many more members look at this discussion, so I wanted to post again here, to see if any of our European/UK  members have any idea when the TKS-80 table saw with Sawstop technology may be available in EUROPE/UK (North America introduction seems to always be much later).
If they have been demoing the unit at various locations, I would assume that the introduction for sale would be immenent ?? The "prototype" I saw looked more like a production model???

I have asked Festool headquarters the single question of 'when' a good while back, apart from the automated 'we got your question and will get back to you asap'... no answer yet.

Thank you Gregor.
I am not sure that Festool really is familiar with   marketing here in the U.S.  We have become a market of "we want it now" consumers. I have NO Problem with Apple's style of marketing, Keep it totally secret until you announce and simultaneously, ship the product - You build up a demand - then immediately satisfy it (or as soon as you can), but this constant showing of equipment, then dragging out the rollout for months or years, just drives customers to their competitors. I consider myself a very loyal brand customer, but I am not sure with their marketing.
