  RE: Fortive Corporation
       Amendment No. 1 to Registration Statement on Form 10
       Filed March 4, 2016 (File No. 001-37654)

Dear Ms. Ravitz:

On behalf of Fortive Corporation (the “Company”), I acknowledge that:


    the Company is responsible for the adequacy and accuracy of the disclosure in the filing;


    staff comments or changes to disclosure in response to staff comments do not foreclose the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) from taking any action with respect to the filing; and


    the Company may not assert staff comments as a defense in any proceeding initiated by the Commission or any person under the federal securities laws of the United States.

Very truly yours,

/s/ James A. Lico

President and Chief Executive Officer
