Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


I'm not fully getting the cordless tools like the jigsaw and TS from festool. The whole point of these tools is dust extraction. So being cordless is about as much use as a chocolate fire guard. Guess they are great if dust extraction ain't the main point in owning them though.

That's kinda what I was thinking. There are times I use the TS w/o the dust extractor, but not often. But if you got the cash for it by all means. Lol

The drill I fully get being cordless as they done revolve around the extraction part at all. These on the other hand do. Like you say though if your not worried about dust extraction then its a sweat tool.

I use the dust extractor on my Mafell saw but on a jigsaw i think its a waste of time..
A lot of places i work have no mains power so everything needs to be cordless. If there is power and I'm only doing a couple of cuts its a pain dragging out a dust extractor and transformer, especially if its up a few flights of stairs to just trim a couple of doors etc.

I use the dust extraction on my jigsaw all the time. Its great not covering the floor and material and dust.

That's a great saw if you a aint worried about dust though. I have only been without power once in 7 years so pointless for me. Used to have a genny in England when I was doing new builds. Didn't often have power on a lot of them places until HO moved in.

That's the way to do it. Bare tool.

Does it need both battery's in to run?

So....how's the Quadrive? Been waiting for someone to post up on it...it's the kind of tool I'd like to get to handle all of my drilling and driving needs. Will it do that?
Think it'll handle up 1 -1/2" spades, hole saws, forsteners, and general driving of 3" screws with no problem?

It will just laugh at all those. I have also mixed thinset and dry wall mud with it. It has a nice side handle that comes with it too.

The only complaint I have, is I find it a bit on the heavy side.

I was running 3" screws with the cxs.
