Festool Facts

There are many reasons why more and more customers would rather invest in a high quality tool than "throw away" models. One of those reasons is directly related to the availability of consumables and spare parts.

Here is a question we often get from customers; "If a tool that I bought a while ago gets discontinued, do I have to worry that I won't be able to buy consumables and spare parts for that tool anymore?" The answer is "no". Festool guarantees the availability of consumables and spare parts for at least 7 years after a tool is discontinued. We say "at least" because for almost every tool we have discontinued in the last 20 years, there are still spare parts and consumables available. Festool tools last very long under normal conditions. Believe it or not, we sometimes get tools back for repair that were sold in the 1950s and have been in use since then! In most cases we still manage to find the right parts for these tools.

So the next time you make a tool purchase, choose to invest in a Festool product that is designed for durability and for which consumables and spare parts will be available for decades to come.

Now that's...

Faster. Easier. Smarter.
