Congratulations. The longer you own it and use it, the more you will appreciate all the details that went into its design and smooth operation.
Once dust collection becomes a priority in the shop, the hassle of dragging the hose around with the router will become second nature. I use a hanger clipped to the table to keep the hose and power cord out of the way.
Its smooth start up and auto load/speed modulation is a real plus.
Not sure why us Festool owners seem to have to justify the high price. Silly really. It is built like a Mercedes\BMW and performs like one. Hell, if you had to make this in the USA, it would cost just as much.
Funny what happens to the price of a product when you have to pay an adult a fair wage, health care, workman's comp, vacation, medical or maternity leave, jury or military duty, meet EPA regulations, OSHA, health and safety codes, pension, severance, over time, comfortable work area, and the list goes on.
Just remember what my father always said, " Half the people in this world are below average!", and everything in life will make a hellova lot more sense.
