Promoting something that won t be available for purchase after is weird to me. Why is it so hard to wrap your brain around that. Now you seem to be claiming it will be for sale which is fine, my info might be wrong, I admitted that. Where are you getting your info?

First my information is coming from Festool USA as well as what is on in production and on sale outside of NA. If you look back at my first post I said the sander will continue in production and be for sale just not in promotional guise.

You will be able to buy this exact sander 3 months from now, the only difference MAY be if Festool decides to keep the Pro 5 name vs returning to the standard ETS 125 nomenclature. What you want be able to buy and indeed see production stop is the PROMOTIONAL version of the sander with the blue Systainer and the voucher. There will be no more Pro 5 sanders in a blue Systainer with a voucher BUT the same sander without the voucher and with a gray Systainer will be available.

If I understand you correctly what you think of as weird is not happening and either you got bad information or misunderstood the information. I found it weird since because what you apparently find weird is not happening and I see nothing weird about what Festool is actually doing. You just seem to be stuck on the idea that the sander won’t be for sale which is incorrect, it just won’t be for sale in promotional form, I think you are simply confused about some information you read.
