Festool USA received two Pro Tool Innovation Awards (PTIA) for its TSC 55 Cordless Track Saw and the BHC 18 Cordless Rotary Hammer.
PTIA judges commented: “Festool’s 18V Track Saw is more than just a circular saw on a track. It’s a precision track saw that really does offer incredibly straight cuts. Powered by two batteries, those cuts are also powerful. One of the things Festool does really well is design tools around a system—a system that usually includes class-leading dust collection. The TSC 55 is no exception and even does a phenomenal job of dust collection with just the collection bag attached to the dust port.”
About the BHC Rotary Hammer they said: “What really set Festool’s BHC Rotary Hammer apart from the competition is its vibration reduction that results in some of the smoothest drilling we’ve ever experienced in this class of tool. Festool seems to have brought a sense of control to a very aggressive tool.”
“The 18V categories are extremely competitive and these awards represent Festool’s success in providing professionals with tools that truly help them work more efficiently and with better results," said Steve Rangoussis, chief sales and marketing officer, Festool.
