There are many power tool manufacturers with various products on the market. While some focus on offering a wide range of tools, others are content to carve out a niche and focus on offering superior quality on a specific tool. Festool, however, has focused their efforts on offering a wide range of tools that offer superior quality, power, and longevity.
Festool’s calling card can easily be identified by the superior dust extraction provided, often as part of each tool they offer whenever possible. Wood dust is known to be very unhealthy, causing a host of significant medical issues in anyone who breathes in a lot of wood dust over the years. For some tools, dust extraction is included with the tool itself. For other tools and applications, your best bet is to invest in a Festool dust extractor, such as the Festool Dust Extractor CT SYS CLEANTEC or Festool Dust Extractor CT 48 E HEPA CLEANTEC.
Dust extraction doesn’t just keep the worker healthy, it also prolongs the life of the power tool itself. With a dust extraction unit, you can even prolong the life of all of your power tools by catching dust before it ends up in all the nooks and crannies and causes damage. It’s also great for maintaining a clean workspace that is easy to work in and doesn’t require extensive sweeping and dusting between each session of work. In addition, a Festool dust extractor keeps the air clear of wood dust and allows for better visibility while you work.
Power & Precision
Another innovation you’ll find with Festool products is the power offered, especially when using their cordless power tools. In most cases, using a cordless power tool means accepting less power. This can limit the viable application of some cordless power tools, forcing woodworkers to potentially have two of the same tool—one that is cordless, and one that’s corded. Festool has made great strides in the industry by producing cordless tools that don’t sacrifice power for mobility. In addition, their tools are known for their minute precision, allowing for incredibly clean and precise work to be done on every project. When the measurement needs to be right down to the millimeter, a Festool product will get the job done right.
As mentioned, the built-in dust extraction for many Festool power tools actually prolongs the life of the tools. Wood dust loves to build up in small areas of the tools, especially at joints or around buttons and handles. Beyond the dust extraction, Festool simply offers more robust products that are meant to be with you longer. The up-front cost is higher, but the mileage you’ll get out of Festool products is worth the investment.
