Yes the 1400 is available in the US. I own a 1000, the 1400 & a 2200. As Wright WW points out, it's the in between model. I use it more than the other two but am glad to have all three. My biggest complaints are the pistol grip (very personal) and the dust collection. Unlike the 1100 & the 2200 the 1400 does not have an integrated dust port. Instead it has a clip on plastic port which works ok but is sure to be lost or broken.
Peter Parfitt on the FOG has done some nice vids of the Festool routers, might be worth a look if you're interested.
I already have the 1400, and really love it. Took a bit of getting used to the grip, but once I was, it has been absolutely fantastic. Works well free hand, and in the CMS table. I've never wanted more power, but if I did timber framing or staircase work, the 2200 or the Mafell would be top of the list.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.
