Germany manages the Festool USA website and I think this is a mistake. This product is not currently being offered in the U.S. market and there's no indication that it will be at this time. Let me ping the guys over at FUSA and see what they say. I'll update you guys tomorrow when they're back in the office.

Hey Shane, this is directly from the Festool USA web site.

As Shane mentioned, der Fatherland manages the FUSA website instead of FUSA staff.  I personally harbor no illusions that this set will actually be released in the United States.  Frankly, any time I see a blue Systainer offering, I immediately write it off as "not coming to the USA" (Emerald Edition excepted since that was literally a USA Emerald Anniversary).

If it is released, it will be a "limited edition" that will sell out immediately at the major online retailers, be listed for 50% over MSRP on eBay, and 10% of the nation's stock will be found collecting dust 3 years from now in the back storage room of retailers like Acme Tools, and AmazonUK and Amazon.de will refuse to ship it overseas at any price.

I think the MFT accessory set will eventually see the update, but possibly not until 2023 or 2024 when they update the MFT/3 Set and bump the price to $800.

Well, here's hoping that you and Shane are both wrong.  [smile]  [poke]

No UL approvals needed here.  [tongue]

@elfick @ADKMedic I received confirmation from FUSA this morning that the listing of this product on the festoolusa.com website was in error. This product is not available in the U.S. at this time, and no according to them "no plans" at this time for it to be released in the U.S. market. Sorry for the bad news.

@Shane Holland That's a bummer but unfortunately not really surprising. Thanks for checking on it for us!
