“The new Bluetooth battery packs allow professionals to benefit from Festool's virtually dust-free system when working with Festool cordless products,” Leo Zirkler, Festool’s vice president of marketing, said in a statement. “And, they further extend the functionality and convenience of our recently updated CT dust extractors.”
