No. If you go to checkout you will be told they won't ship to the US.

I tried ordering from Atlas about 8 weeks ago to be shipped to the US. It was going to cost me $50 Canadian shipping but worth it because I was buying two hybrid sanders (125+Delta) for $620 Canadian.   (total about $500 US with shipping).  I was keeping the order under $700 because orders under $700 go through customs better.  I was already working on my second order, then the first order got hung up.  Then it was cancelled.  I thought maybe shipping batteries across a border caused a problem, so followed up since my 2nd order was for a bare tool.  Yes, shipping batteries across borders does create a problem, but the main roadblock was Festool does not allow sales to the US.  But if you are in Australia, try it because their ad says they sell internationally so they sell to someone.   But they will not ship to United States.  If they do sell to Australia, watch their future ads, because they had some great deals 8 weeks ago.  It is the same ad now, but the good deals are gone.

I believe it has to do with new sets being in systainer3 and the new Bluetooth batteries.
