Win a tool a day competition


For the entire month of September, in celebration of the new www.festool.com.au website, Festool ran a special ‘Win a Tool a Day Competition’.

Each day, entrants had the opportunity to win a different tool by entering their details and answering a few questions like ‘tell us in 50 words or less how Festool can make your work faster, easier and better?’ Festool and Protool tools including CXS Mini Drill/Drivers, ETS 150 Sanders and even a TS 55 R Plunge saw – to mention only a few – were amongst other attractive prizes that were up for grabs. In total, Festool awarded 30 prizes worth a total prize pool of more than $13,000. Some lucky winners even had their prizes personally delivered by Festool Technical Sales Consultants!

We were impressed by all of the creative and unique entries, ranging from song texts, to personal stories to some very original poems. The great level of creativity and originality made for a tough challenge for our judges! We had winners from various trades (Building/Framing/Carpentry, Painting/Plastering, Joining/Cabinetmaking/Window Construction, Private/DIY) and from all over Australia.

Festool would like to thank all entrants for their time and effort and congratulations again to the winners!
