Keeping your work clean has never been so easy

Extraction is an essential part of any workshop. When it comes to your health, reducing dust is a priority. For Festool, this is a core concept that guides the design of almost every tool they create. Festool has recently launched a range of brand new products. The latest updates mean you’ll achieve more success even more quickly and easily. With this in mind, let’s now take a look at the new features and discover what’s new in the world of dust extraction.


Festool mobile dust extractors – what’s new?

Fantastic innovative details

Festool has added new and better features to all NEW CT 26, 36 and 48 mobile dust extractors. Virtually all Festool mobile dust extractors now come supplied with a new, smooth suction hose. Some models also include the new SYS-DOCK with cable holder and T-LOC function so that you can get to work straight away.

New smooth, suction hose

Thanks to its smooth exterior and tapered design, the new hose reduces friction making it perfect for sliding over edges. It also increases air flow rate for improved suction and faster progress with your work. For improved handling and a longer service life, the inside of the hose is slightly corrugated.

For a secure fit on the tool, the new CLEANTEC extraction sleeve with integrated bayonet fitting is the perfect solution. There’s now no chance of the suction hose slipping off the power tool due to the reliable connection. This saves you time and any inconvenience.

Anti static hose

Finally, the new hose is interchangeable with the old style dust extractors. For convenience, the hose can plugged into the inlet of the older style machines.


Simple transportation, better organisation

Thanks to the new cable holder, the cable can be quickly and neatly wound up and tidied away. This also means there’s no need to waste time frantically unwinding the cable when you need to use the extractor.

Another key benefit is that the hose is much more flexible. You can effortlessly bend it in whatever direction you want. This makes it simple to coil the hose into a hose garage or SYSTAINER for clean transportation.

You can also transform two hoses into a single long one by connecting the initial piece and end piece of two suction hoses. Moreover, the two pieces slot together for transport – this keeps any remaining dust in the hose.

These practical features help improve workplace organisation and minimise the clear up process. The optimised SYS-DOCK with cable holder and updated T-LOC function makes it easy to safely connect SYSTAINERs to the mobile dust extractor.

Connecting a SYSTAINER to the extractor

Innovative Bluetooth technology

On all compatible Festool mobile dust extractors, the control panel includes provision for retrofitting a Bluetooth module (optional accessory). A qualified electrician should carry out the fitting. A remote control on the suction hose activates the extractor. This allows you to remotely operate your extractor wherever you are, without needing to change the dust extractor mode from AUTO to Manual.

Bluetooth remote control

The innovative Bluetooth technology works with cordless tools in conjunction with a Bluetooth battery pack. For convenience, the mobile dust extractors start up automatically when Festool cordless tools with Bluetooth battery packs are switched on. This saves you time and energy as there is no need to keep going back and forth to the extractor to switch it on and off.

Festool bluetooth-capable battery pack

Overall, the introduction of new Bluetooth-capable battery packs extends Festool’s range of compatible batteries. Collectively along with the latest updates and additions, the new products represent real progress in cordless and cleaner work.
