Festool is traveling the U.S. this summer, and the company’s awesome 48-ft semi-trailer truck made its way to Sears Trostel on May 17.
We were a bit concerned that the dreary weather might discourage people from coming out, but our fears were soon dashed. According to our Festool friends,
Those that fared the weather boarded Festool’s beautiful touring truck with dual fold-out stages and 500 sq-ft of working area, and were able to talk in-depth with Festool experts on the whole Festool line.
Attendees were also introduced to the new HK 55 Portable Circular Saw,
which was designed with contractors involved in timber construction in mind. We anticipate its arrival in the US in September.

A majority of participants received a Festool gift bag, coffee and lunch were served, and we sent home extra goodies with several lucky people.
Congratulations to our drawing winners:
- Festool SYSLITE — Jerry Barger
- Festool SYSCART — Dan Quinn
- Sears Trostel $50 Gift Card — Doug Ruffin & Jared Heueran
- Festool Roadshow T-Shirts — Philip Lundgren, Dennis Middlemist, Roy Kennedy, Brian Propp, Keith Richling
Those who bought $500 or more of Festool goods at the show received a Festool Roadshow t-shirt or a Festool hat. We still have some remaining, so if you come into Sears Trostel and make a Festool purchase of $500 or more, we'll throw in a t-shirt or hat while our supplies last.
With the success of this event, we hope to be on the route for future tours. But, we hope to see you before then. We'll keep you posted as the newest Festool innovations come online!
