Default New Festool sanders ... and a sale!

There's 3 new Festool sanders coming out, and one of them is offered for a pre order sale in the US

RTS Sander RTS 400 EQ Orbital Finish Sander 567863 - Festool Power Tools

DTS Sander Orbital Delta Sander DTS 400 201228 - Festool Power Tools

Pro 5 Sander PRO 5 LTD 201234 - Festool Power Tools

The Pro 5 is pre-order priced at $99, that is in the no brainer category for me but YMMV. Worth a look at least, check with your prefered Festool dealer for more details on the promo.

Right. This deal pushed me into finally getting one of Festool's 5 " sander models after buying every other Sander that they offer...
The added bonus of Pad Protection like a Rotex Sander, Really Low Price and Voucher good on another tool purchase was too much to pass up...
New $99 Pro 5 LTD Sander with $50 Voucher - While Supplies Last

Hmmmm.
Maybe a sander for each grit.
Sure would speed things up.

It does, my friend did just that in his cabinet shop, also gives the tools a chance to cool off a bit.

$99 is a steal! I'd order a few if they were offered at that price here. I'm guessing they are about $500 here
Are these German made?

Yes, per-orders on hold due to overwhelming volume of orders. :headslap ::devildanc e:
It will be interesting going forward to see how Festool works a sale price this massive on a tool in the future. Like, will they need to limit the amount of tools per customer. While the One Customer, One Tool Order sounds good, Commercial Tool buyers who buy for a whole staff at once will balk at such a limitation. They were quietly behind the scenes buying 5-10 sanders for a shop during this sale.
