Like in most of the Festool products, this tool is bound to generate some dust in the course of its use. This is why the manufacturer in its sacred wisdom designed the dust extraction mechanism which is also found in the OF 1010 EQ router. The dust extractor keeps the user from the dusty environs and so keeps the health status protected.
Other systems in use
This router is seen to work well with among others the FS guide rail which has been seen to work with most of the Festool products. Other known devices are the LR32 hole drilling system, the VS600 dovetail jig which is in most cases used in joinery applications.
It is no doubt that the manufacturer has done some of the best homework ever seen in this industry with regard to it. This allows the router to be able to be able to work with intense speed. In conditions even when the load being handled is too much. The load is protected by the ability of this router to be able to have some temperature controls. In addition, the ability of this router to operate at constant power range and ease of power use is seen in most cases as the locks up and maintains the router grip.
