Festool Syslite Duo LED Work Light Preview

Written by on October 2, 2016 in Lighting, Products of Interest with 0 Comments

Last month, Festool rolled out a new work light that improves their existing line of work lighting.

Syslite Duo

The Festool Syslite Duo LED work light was recently released in the USA.

A short list of media outlets received the Syslite Duo for an early look before its release, and TCR was fortunate to spend several weeks with the tool.

Our full review will appear in an upcoming issue of American Painting Contractor magazine, and we will share that info here on the site as well as through our social media network.

In the meantime, here are some quick facts about the new Syslite Duo:

  • Unique LED configuration for 180° light dispersion angle for even illumination
  • High illuminating power (8000 lumens) for brilliant lighting of a large surface area
  • Daylight-like color for accurate color representation (5000 K)
  • Sturdy and durable design with shock-proof corners
  • Dust and water-resistant, withstands drops and impact (safety class IP 55)
  • LEDs rated for up to 10,000 hours of use
  • Comes in a Systainer SYS 3 T-LOC, note the optional tripod will not fit in the Systainer
  • Tripod sold separately
  • 3-year warranty
