Festool USA will release its new Energy Set on August 3 to complement the company’s cordless power tool line. The Energy Set includes four lithium-ion batteries and a rapid charger packaged in the Systainer3 transport system, and is compatible with all Festool 18V tools (except cordless sanders). Festool’s new AIRSTREAM technology rapidly cools the battery and allows for 60 percent faster charging compared to previous generation chargers. The company shared that the Energy Set is key to providing users with unmatched mobility on the jobsite and in the workshop.
“Festool has released many exciting, cordless tools in the past year, from the TID 18 Impact Driver to the TSC 55 K track saw because we know how important mobility is to our customers. They depend on our cordless tools to be long-lasting and offer rapid charging while still providing the same premium performance for which Festool has always been known,” said Rick Bush, product marketing manager at Festool USA.
The Energy Set includes two compact 4.0 Ah Lithium-ion batteries and two 5.2 Ah Lithium-ion batteries, each with Bluetooth capabilities that enable tool-triggered start when paired with a properly equipped Festool CT Dust Extractor. Each battery pack is protected by electronic monitoring of voltage and temperature and contains an LED display that shows remaining battery capacity. The Energy Set features Festool’s rapid charger — the SCA 8.
The Energy Set is backed by a 3-year all-inclusive warranty by which Festool covers wear-and-tear on its tools and accessories. The Energy Set will be available at Festool dealer locations.
