See what you've been missing thanks to 170° of even light dispersion that goes where you do. Whether your work takes you under a cabinet or crawlspace, or to an attic or the outdoors, the SysLite's robust build and shock-resistant body is easy to carry and designed to perform when you need it most. Six high-efficiency, LED bulbs will provide even, consistent light for up to four hours on a single charge, longer when paired with a compatible Festool cordless drill battery, and without interruption when plugged directly to a power source.
Compact and Rugged - Built to handle the toughest you can throw at it, the SysLite features a rugged housing and nearly indestructible LED lights, so you won't ever have to worry about breaking or replacing bulbs.
Unbelievably Bright - The SysLite delivers an even, balanced light source, casting a brilliant and consistent white light, so you can examine the smallest details in close quarters, or take a few steps back to look at the big picture.
Multiple Power Options - The SysLite features a long-lasting internal battery as its main power source, but can be easily charged or run with the included wall and car chargers, or used with a compatible Festool battery as an auxiliary power source to the internal battery.
Available on June 1st, 2012 in the United States. Coming soon to Canada.
Final finishing doesn't have to be difficult, time-consuming, or messy. The Festool Surfix tackles one of the hardest-to-nail finishing tasks with ease, dispensing oil directly from the squeezable handle and into the sponge, so you can control the amount and the distribution of oil across your surface without covering your hands or clothes. This self-contained system not only provides quick and even distribution but also reduces costs associated with throwaway rags and brushes.

Marc discusses the terminology, tools and techniques of sanding.
Marc Spagnuolo, the Wood Whisperer, has covered the topic of sanding in many of his videos, touting the advantages of Festool sanders and dust extractors in producing a remarkable surface quickly and easily.

Only a Full Unit Certified HEPA dust extractor meets the EPA RRP regulation guidelines, protecting you from expensive fines!
All current Festool CT Dust Extractor models, shipped to dealers as of October 2011, have been independently tested and certified to be FULL UNIT HEPA Dust Extractors. When you purchase a new Festool CT Dust Extractor, regardless of model, you will find a printed certificate in the box as well as labeling on the dust extractor documenting its Full Unit HEPA certification.
If you are a contractor or remodeler working on projects impacted by the EPA's RRP regulations, and your current vacuum only has a HEPA filter, without Full Unit HEPA Certification, then you are at risk of being cited for non-compliance with the updated requirements. Simply put, there's absolutely no substitute for Full Unit HEPA Certification when using your vacuum for EPA RRP.
There's little doubt that EPA RRP inspectors will see Festool's Full Unit HEPA Certification as the standard by which all other manufacturers are measured. After all, this certification fully meets all of the requirements of the EPA RRP regulations when other manufacturers' vacuums only meet a portion of the requirements.
