New Festool Vacuums Coming to the US

July 7th, 2010 by Jim German Leave a reply »

Festool USA has announced that the new CT 26 and CT 36 dust extractors will be available in the US and Canada starting on October 1st.  The Festool vacs are an improved versions of the current CT 22 and CT 33 that are currently avalible.  The new vacs have a lower center of gravity, for increased stability, and a redesigned turbine for greater suction.  They also have a newly designed dust bag, that cleans itself when it collapses as the vacuum is shut off.  Festool claims that this will increase the amount of fine dust able to be captured by one bag by a factor of 4.  We’re a bit skeptical how well this will actually work in practice, but its an interesting idea.  In addition to the new features, the CT’s feature a compact design, that includes a cord holder and a ‘hose garage’ to keep every thing neat and tidy.  The CT 26 has a 26 liter capacity, and the CT 36, you guessed it, has a 36 liter capacity.
